  1. It is Christmas Eve here Down Under so I want to say.... may you all have safe and Happy Christmas celebrations.

  2. Just had some time visiting with my daughter and grandchildren.. My new little grandson is now 3 weeks old and he is doing well. Just loved having some cuddles of him.

      We will never ever be bored will we

  4. I need to get caught up on my Project Life pages but I cannot see it happening this weekend as I need to get stuck into some papercraft projects.

  5. Back from meeting my new grandson. Went to celebrate my oldest granddaughter's Birthday and while we had the girls out for lunch and a play in the park - phone rang to say their mother was in labor. So the play in the park was extended. When we got home - Andreas was nearly 2 hours old. My daughter has very quick births. You can meet Andreas in the gallery: http://scrapgirls.net/forum/gallery/image/154643-sg-blog-sketch-challenge-andreas-james/

  6. Tomorrow my husband and I are heading to my daughters to celebrate my oldest granddaughters 8th Birthday. Maybe her baby brother will arrive on her birthday and if that happens I will be away from internet for a couple of days.

    1. Boatlady

      My fingers are crossed that you get a baby boy for your grandaughters birthday.

      Your new grandson is just waiting for you to get there for his arrival, lol. Enjoy the birthday party and hopefully a birth as well!

      He's just waiting on grandma to make his appearance!

  7. Well, tomorrow 14th here, is the date my daughter says is the real due date for this baby to enter the world. She is keeping well... just hope he is not growing too big for her body to handle.

    1. healthyscraps

      healthyscraps

      I am convinced the real due date is the day they arrive :) My prayer is for the delivery and all to go well. Look forward to news soon.

      My Mom always said due dates were an approximation and I l LIKE Jacqui's definition, that's perfect! :)

  8. It all seems so quiet here after the busy weeks of the Anniversary celebrations. Still no new grandchild here yet.

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      Not only did he wait for the Anniversary party to be over he is giving you time to recover....it will be soon now.

    2. MariJ

      MariJ

      Good thinking Debby! And, yes Anne Marie, it was nice to have you with us, altho' sorry you're still waiting!

    3. GrannieEv

      GrannieEv

      LOL ... babies don't know when they're supposed to be born!

  9. Still no new grandchild. I think my daughter may be correct in saying her due date is the 14th. It was the midwife who gave an earlier date.

    1. KatieGrace

      KatieGrace

      Oh my Jody, I thought 10-4 was a big baby.

    2. Cheri T

      Cheri T

      As long as you do "due dates" the same there as we do here, remember babies can come anywhere between 14 days before and 14 days after the due date (unless there is a medical need to make things happen sooner)

    3. Nica

      Nica

      Some Dr. have even started giving due months, a range of dates, because some moms get so hung up on the date. Can't wait to here the news though. :)

       

      KatieGrace and Jody, OH MY!!! Mine were 7-4, 6-4, and 8-0. Even the adopted one came home at 5 pounds.

  10. The anniversary celebrations are over and I am still waiting for my new grandchild to be born. I thought the event might happen sooner than this which why I surprised myself with the 21 challenges I completed.

  11. Popped in for the first chat and discovered my time setting does not work properly because of being on daylight saving here. So I will be back when the chats do start.

      Does it get better or worse when you uncheck the DST time adjustment?

  12. I just had a nice long chat with my daughter, All is well. Yes, the baby has gone past the first due date now waiting for the second due date which is the 14th. She does not feel like he will arrive in the next 24 hours.... but you never know.

  13. If this baby I am waiting news on does not arrive tonight... I may be able to attend some of the chats tomorrow.

    1. April Showers

      April Showers

      Well, I can't say I hope he doesn't come tomorrow, but we'd love to have you at the chats!

    2. Ngaire

      Anne Marie its so hard waiting isn't it. We are also awaiting news on a good friend who is due as well, so I know how you feel. I guess they come in their own good time!

  14. 21 layouts in three weeks... never thought I would get this many done but then with my new grandchild not coming early as we thought would happen made this possible.

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      What a good little boy waiting till after the party. Now he can show up and you are loaded with ideas to scrap pages about him.

    2. teecee

      teecee

      Great job on completing 21 layouts, Anne-Marie! WTG!

  16. My new grandchild still has not arrived. He has not arrived early like his three sisters did. A friend told me that boys are sometimes slow in all areas of life.

    1. Cheri T

      Cheri T

      I'm glad she was just joking. I'm just joking too - perhaps girls are just more impatient! ;) LOL Hope he arrives soon and with an easy delivery.

    2. Jo Corne

      Jo Corne

      LOL A-M, yes they are…my hubby was two weeks late, and has never been on time since!! DRIVES ME NUTS!! LOL. good luck, let us know when you know

  17. Still waiting for a certain phone call so tonight phoned and only got the answering machine which doesn't tell me anything as they do not always answer even if they are home.

    1. jode2771

      jode2771

      My ex mother-in-law did that and then getting no answer she rang the hospital - I did NOT want to talk while I was in labour! Hang tight - the call will come!!! Thinking of you at this exciting time :-)

    2. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      Fingers crossed for that call soon...waiting is terrible.

       

  18. Whenever the phone rings I think it will be news of my new grandchild's birth.

      This week... but we thought he might come early as Ruth was doing a lot of waddling the last time we saw her.

  19. It is now 10.30pm here for me and I am starting to feel tired... I do hope to stay alert and join in on the template chat. Might go have a shower to wake me up a bit.

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      I hope to see you there.

      I'm just hanging in there. It is almost 11pm here.

  20. I just might have a Nanna Nap after lunch today so I can be wide awake at midnight for the first DSD chat.

    1. Jane in N.Z

      My Halloweeners have gone home and we will be back home in a few hours... Think I can skip feeding the kids so I can grab a nanna nap too?? It's a good cause!!

    1. ValerieT

      You can see the time for each chat in your time zone by clicking on it in the side bar. The time will show in the top purple bar if you have your time zone selected in your settings.

  22. Every time the phone rings now I will be thinking it could be news that my grandson is on his way into this world.

  23. It is starting to get more difficult to find the certain challenges in our celebrations section. If you are like me and get lost - go back to the sign in thread and April has each challenge linked there as they are posted in the forum.

      I'm linking them in the schedule threads too.

  24. I would so enjoy attending the High Noon chat but I do not think I can wake myself up to sit at the computer at 3 am in the morning.

    1. scrapgran

      scrapgran

      I agree Anne Marie. I will do the challenge tomorrow.

      That is why I wasn't at the Art Journaling chat. :-)

       

    3. jode2771

      jode2771

      That is one of the many reasons I admire Belle! She DOES do that!! And why we have chats at lots of different times, SG are everywhere so whilst we miss some chats we can make others :-)

  25. I wished I lived on the other side of the world right now so I could take part in all the fun things happening here today but I live here Down Under and need to get some sleep. So I hope you all enjoy the fun and games.

    1. MariJ

      Good night Anne Marie and so glad you could make the Art Journaling chat - it was good to be with you! :)
