Bouncing Around

I've decided that I am a bouncer like Winnie the Pooh's friend Tigger. I bounce around from subject to subject without a beat in the conversation. Now, I don't consider bouncing a character flaw, rather it does make the person who is listening to me or reading what I'm writing pay more attention. LOL But seriously, I've noticed I am doing this alot more lately and I think it has something to do with the change of life (which I like to blame everything on). But I also think this bounciness ( is bounciness a real word?) is hardwired in me. I just can't help bouncing! So I am sorry if I've bounced a little too much lately and I will try to work on it so I don't totally confuse anyone. :-) And now I am going to "bounce" to the subject of babies!

Look at these. Are they not the cutest baby shower invitations? They actually stand up. My daughters and I are giving a shower for Jimmy(my son) and Allison's baby boy who is due at the end of March. We found these precious invitations at Hallmark and had to use them.
Look how all of the information is on the side of the "crib".
And they lay flat to be put in the envelope. I just hope the friends and relatives who are being invited realize that the invites stand up to look like a baby's crib. The countdown to the the two new grandbabies begins. My daughter Melissa is due in May and they find out what they are having this week. I'll have to see if they want me to share if it's a boy or girl yet. Anyway, have a great Monday and I'll just be here in good ole' Cincy bouncing around a bit. :-)

That has got to be one of the cutest cards I have ever seen, I am going to put that in my collection of sweet cards. ;)

I just wish they would sell such stuff already over here; Germany is still in the baby shoes for having baby showers.

Good look and have fun at your Shower! :)

Cute invitations! They are always coming out with neat stuff. Makes me want another baby just to own some of the neat baby stuff (OK - maybe not).

Must be a family trait - I "bounce" around a lot too. Well, after reading this now I know that the invite will stand up. Too cute! See you in the morning.

We've had stormy weather here, but now it is over.


Oh Joan, bounciness is absolutely a word! 2 new grandchildren, how wonderful. I was sure I got to you to wish you Happy New Year, but maybe not, so Happy, Happy New Year, albeit a little late. Boy, that snow looks cold! Brrrr.

how wonderful to have two new grand children so close together... they will be good friends as well as cousins...
you can bounce if you want to.. after all you are a grand ma and they are allowed to do anything...and their grands will still love them!!!

Bev said...

The invitations are pretty darned cute, but I have to say I'm just as impressed that my cursor turns into a little red cardinal when I visit your place. How on earth did you do that?

Bouncing...thats what Tiggers do best! I love the invitations, they're just cute! But you know, I'd love a surprise...I'm glad I didn't know what I was having...both my boys were wonderful little surprises to me...the new generation...they think they've got the world on a string...well, I guess maybe they do, don't they? And congrats to you all!
