A February Stamp of the Month Card and Pedersen FUN the Past Few Weeks!

5x7 Card I made using the February Stamp of the Month (Wild About Love)
We'll start today with a fun February Stamp of the Month card.  I had fun playing with this set and hope you will too. It's yours for only $5 ($17.95 value) with every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) in February.  If you are ordering from my website, you will be prompted to add it before you check out.

Coincidentally, this card also fits the Moxie Fab World Hexagon Challenge this week.  You can see all of the products I used on this card as well as links to them on my site at the bottom of this post. Don't you just love those hexagon chipboard shapes? They are called Irresitibles Hexagons and come as white chipboard with a clear embossed pattern on the top. You just rub a little ink on top with a sponge and the design shows through. COOL BEANS! The heart and sentiment are both from the Stamp of the Month set.

There has been so much going on the past few weeks, and I thought maybe I ought to share some of our Pedersen adventures with you.

Let's start with the twins' 2nd birthday party.  Kori outdid herself with the Minnie and Mickey theme.  She really is AMAZING at the party thing!  It is so much less stressful being the grandparent.  Actually, my parties never looked like this anyway.  She puts me to shame!

We had Dan and I, Kori, Rick and their family, Tannon and Brookley, and Rick's side of the family there for the party. Unfortunately Easton and Daysha and Sage couldn't come up for the party. We missed them!

Livvi and Street had a Minnie and Mickey themed 2nd birthday party.

About a week after the twins' party, it was time for the Superbowl.  Unfortunatley I forgot to take pictures of that, which maybe wasn't such a bad thing. We are Bronco fans and maybe this Superbowl is better off forgotten.  Easton and Daysha were able to come up this weekend and we loved having them here with all of us for our traditional Superbowl party. We'll get 'em next year, Broncos!

Dawson is, as most of you know, serving a mission in Australia for our church. It is a 2 year mission and he has been gone 8 months now, which means he's 1/3 of the way done! We miss him! Here are a couple of recent pictures of him on this mission:
Dawson is 2nd from the right

While on his mission, Dawson has learned to play a little guitar.
In the meantime, Tannon and Brookley got their engagement photos taken. Their wedding is coming up on March month from today! Here is one of the photos. I thought they turned out so beautifully.

Sage turned 6 months!  I don't know how the time has gone so quickly. Easton and Daysha sure know how to make beautiful babies! I think they need to hurry and make another one. Lol.
Our sweet little Sage
Lastly, we had Brookley's bridal shower the other night and it was not only fun, but beautiful! We had about 35 people attend and they came ready to party (and to shower Brookley with amazing gifts).  Kori was in charge and she did an awesome job!

Well, if you're still with me, thanks for hanging in there!  The products I used on my card and the links to them on my site are below.  Have a GREAT day!

Busy time at the Pedersen home!! Can I just say that Kori is AMAZING! Not only does she plan and put on amazing parties but she does it with three kids! She is out of control I tell you! Good for her.
