Good Morning and what an awesome morning it is. They arrived....THEY ARRIVVVED!! My niece and nephew (along with their daddy, my brother, and mommy, my awesome, amazing sister-in-law) are here. In. my. house! i haven't had a chance to see them yet (taking every ounce of 'restraint' not to go wake them up!), because they didn't get to our place until close to midnight. Because we had a 5:30am alarm set (my husband had to be at the bike races for 7:00am, so I needed to get up early to make him coffee...and no, that's not because I'm a 'good' wife...though I try...it's just easier for me to do it, because my husband and early mornings don't mesh well. I think he arrives on planet earth around 10:00am *grin*), we were pretty much sound asleep. Didn't hear much of anything and just as well we didn't get up, because I think the little ones were mighty tired after their long day at day care and late night drive. I'm hearing some movement from upstairs, so it won't be long before cuddles and hugs and giggles and frolicks begin...
Before all that unfolds, I'll share my card I made this morning (for some reason Mr. Mojo was awake!) for the current Little Tangles Challenge #38 inspiration photo challenge
Some Neat and Tangled Ink Splashes, and a border made with an On the Border set...and ta dahhh...an early morning 'done' card.
Today, we're off to the bike races in Banff, where I'm hoping the little ones will race in the kids' event, schedule before the 'big guys' race. After that, I become an official (along with my husband and a few others) for the afternoon/evening criterium race. Crit races are timed events, where the riders race laps around a circuit (about 3/4 of a mile, give or take). My job: lap counter. Each time they come around, I'll flip the lap counter so they know how many more laps they have left. When they're on the last lap, I ring a bell. Vigorously! It's an important job,
