You Rock!


We are having a lazy Sunday here at the Merritt's house.  We ended this crazy week having some boys over to celebrate Conner's 10th birthday (yikes, double digits!).  Boys are exhausting and SO loud.  After about 5 minutes Doug and I were looking at each other like, "What have we done?" It was a wonderful reminder of why we don't do it all the time.  Luckily we had planned pizza and a movie, so for 90 minutes they were calm and quiet!!  But as soon as the credits started rolling someone yelled, "LET'S GO TO THE BASEMENT!!!"  Barreling down the stairs they all went.  Thank goodness for our finished basement.

Anywho, I'm sure you aren't here to discuss the insanity of boys!  You are here to see a card, right?! 

 made this one for Conner for his birthday using the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this week...
