CHA 2012

Wow, i am way behind with this post. In January I headed off to meet up with my best friend Tiffany in LA for CHA. We try to see each other at least once a year and a scrap book convention is typically involved. Tiffany had quite the adventure just getting to LA from Alaska, check out her blog for the details but just let me say it involved boats, cars and planes and took about 36 hours. Yikes, poor thing. This year we decided to fit in a trip to Disneyland and I must say, I am so glad we did. We had an amazing time, we rode every ride within the 2 hours thanks to Tiffany's cousin and Mom who were both using handicap carts. We went to the front of the line for just about every ride and had to wait just a few turns before we were able to get on each ride! It was crazy fun!! The convention was great too, my first stop each day was Teresa Collins booth for her amazing make and takes. I love her new lines, especially the color combinations- really nice. We took lots of classes, including  few duds, but generally they were pretty good. It's always nice to try out the new products first hand. I had such a great time with Tiffany, Susie and Taylor, it was very relaxing and I cant wait to do it again next year. If we can convince Tiffany to leave Seldovia.....

Shower for the new baby Cain

Rachel and I went to the newest baby Cain's shower on Saturday and had a ton of fun. The food was great, the games hilarious and the new friends were fun to meet. They had a game called pin the sperm on the egg, a new one for me- I wouldnt even have imagined this one. It was hilarious!! I dont know what was funnier, hearing an 8 year old Cyra saying "here gramma, here's your sperm" or Rachel and I both being the only ones to get the sperm on the egg. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!! LOL!! We both had  great time and are looking forward to seeing that new baby in a few weeks. Congratulations Scott, Shawna and Cyra!!
