Isn't it crazy how we get so excited about that silly little turtle??!!!! I was dead tired last night around 10pm and I went to go to bed. But first, I decided to look through my stuff for some ideas for the journal. Next thing I know, I finished 5 pages and it was 1am!! I could have stayed up longer, but I knew I would have paid for it today!
BTW - The passport looks GREAT!!!!!!
Thanks, hon! I am sure a few more touches will be added (IDEAS WELCOME, EVERYONE!) before the final product, but wow, was it loads of fun!
I can't wait to pick up Sheldon today! Ava's soooo excited to meet him!!
Linds, that looks awesome!! I feel like such a turtle neglector!! I just sent him in a small bubble envelope!
Can't wait to see ava and sheldon!
WHERE IS SHELDON????? WE NEED PICS!!!!!
I went to the post office yesterday to get sheldon and they said he was being redelivered today.... but he wasn't delivered!!!!! :evil: :evil:
I'm going there first thing tomorrow and chewing them out and demanding that turtle!
Whatever it costs....we'll pay the ransom!
No mail today Lyns, (Vetetern's Day) he'll probably show tomorrow!!!
THAT'S WHY!!! GOOD, now I know!!!
Arrives and checks out new home:
Yay that Sheldon arrived safely! He looks like he's already enjoying his visit with Miss Ava, who by-the-way has the cutest hair ever in those pictures!
YAY!! Sheldon sure looks happy in his improved habitat!! And Ava looks so excited to meet him!
YAY!!! Sheldon is safe in the arms...er, mouth, of Ava!!!!
:thewave: :thewave: :thewave: :thewave: :thewave:
Miss Ava, who by-the-way has the cutest hair ever in those pictures!
LOL! Thanks! I SO hadn't even brushed it yet and it was doing a weird-flippy-thing. I swear it grows every day!
Yea sheldon!! Ava looks adorable with him!!
Night, night, Ava & Sheldon:
I love her all grabbing her blanket. She definatley isn't going to let Sheldon have any, is she? LOL
Good Morning Sheldon!
To Gram's we go:
No, Romeo! I'm not sharing Sheldon!:
I MEAN IT!
Mommy took Sheldon away
So then we had some blueberry muffins to cheer up a bit (out of Romeo's reach):
Sheldon decided after eating maybe he could help Grandbob with all the renovations:
Very skilled with power drill:
Watch out, Sheldon!
Sheldon You should always have the help of a human (preferably adult) when using power tools young man!!!! Not to mention you are supposed to have someone steady the ladder for you!!!! :shock:
Love Love LOVE the pics!!!!! And miss Ava has the same exact walker we just picked up for Aiden from a consignment store
Love it Linds!!! So glad he is safe and sound.
While Ava had a nap, Sheldon got the royal treatment:
A lovely bubble bath:
A massage (with special shell-treatment-oils)
And then relaxed with Aunt Kerri, Uncle Drew, and Ava after dinner:
Nice to Sheldon being treated so royally!
And nice to see Drew and Kerri, too!!
Here are pics of the start of Sheldon's journal. Should be finished and on it's way to join him in a day or so!
Kristy!!! That is so cute!!
Kristy!!! What a great journal! It's beautiful!
If the journal comes before Saturday, Sheldon will go out Saturday! Don't rush, though, Kristy! It's amazing!
Kristy, you have gone over and above the call of duty! Wow, that journal looks ubelievabley AMAZING!!! Can't wait to see it in person
OMG! OMG! I love it, Kristy! You did GREAT!!!
Kristy that's just great!
wow kristy!! That looks awesome!! Man, this is one pampered turtle!
Here is the rest of his journal. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get it to the post office tomorrow. There is still a surprise to it that you won't get to see until it arrives at each of your houses, but here are the rest of the pages:
Wow, that looks wonderful, thank you for all of your hard work!
Kristy, it's gorgeous! I can't wait to see the surprise!
Well, I tried and tried to get the package out in the mail today, but the "surprise" part of it has taken me all day to finish and it's still drying (my fingers are covered in ink!!!). So, I *think* I can get it to the post office tomorrow. I'll have Owen, so as long as his mom is ok with me taking him in the car (we've already had this discussion and she said it was fine), I have my Mom's club meeting tomorrow which is right near the post office. You'll just have to hang on to Sheldon a bit longer, Lyns. After all, he has to go see Harry Potter with you on Saturday anyway, right?
No problem, kristy - my only concern is that he is WITH someone for Tksgiving (b/c of journal)... so I'll just overnight him if I have to!! LOL!
You guys, the journal came!!! It is BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL. Wait until you see it.
The bad news: the passport's MIA somewhere in my messy house. I've got a back-up passport in the works, but I'm hoping to find hte original before Monday. Monday Sheldon and all of his new things will be overnighted to the next mommy and munchkin.
Poor Sheldon's been a bit neglected with Ava sick last night, but I'll try to get more photos today, a good run-through-the-dishwasher tomorrow (definitely) and then he'll be on his way!
FOUND! Original passport - it's all going out tomorrow!
Note to new mommy host: Even though I washed Sheldon TWICE thoroughly - since Ava's sick I'd HIGHLY recommend doing it again just in case.
YAY for finding the Passport!!
I can't wait to find out where Sheldon ends up next!!
How pretty! You guys have put alot of work into little Sheldon! I cant wait for Alex to play with him!
My mom was kind enough to ship Sheldon for me today!! He'll be at the next mommy's house by noon tomorrow!
Oh wow!!! Yay! Yay! Yay!!!
***secretly hoping it is me****
Oh wow!!! Yay! Yay! Yay!!!
***secretly hoping it is me****
I don't think you are being very secretive at all!! LOL
no. I tend not to be. I wish he'd really come and visit soon. I am not a patient person.
And you know what - if it DOES show up here - I'll be accused of having an inside to Sheldon's travels.
I just realized that I don't ussually check my mail until weekends because our office locks the mailroom during non office hours.......... This never seemed to matter before, because I just recently added myself to the sheldon travel list......... hmmmmm...... I wonder if I might have to start making morning rental office visits on certian days lol
Something for me?
Open it now, mom!
Who's in there?
YAY! You got your wish!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE give that turtle a good washing. I'd die if Jilly got sick!
We are off to give him a bath, Linds. I know you washed him twice, but he needs some R&R after his long trip (and fast trip) here!
Hmmmmm..... now I see how this works!!!
See that star above? I'm *secretly* wishing on it that Sheldon would visit us someday too......:)
So what big plans does Sheldon have for this week?
LMAO @ Jen!
Kristy - that journal is too beautiful. Really. I had tears in my eyes. It is so cool.
Sheldon is soaking in my sink, while J is napping. I'll give him back to J when she gets up and they can play. We have Thanksgiving dinner to attend, he has a Turky Bowl football game to go to on Sunday. Otherwise, just chilling with Jillian!
