Family Update

I am trying to get better at updating my blog but life keep getting in the way. LOL.

I just had emergency oral surgery on Wednesday. Having baby Levi caused one of my wisdom teeth to move. That move was right into some other teeth. I now am slightly less wise.. Of course the day I had my surgery Leia came down with a fever and has been battling it for a few days now. Good News, I think she has won. Bad News, she shared with her brother. So the last two nights have been sleepless. Levi seems to have gotten the runny nose part the worst but that makes for a challenge when nursing. My recovery has taken a backseat but isn't that motherhood at it's best.

I promise to check in again soon... and there will be rewards for my followers.

74700 HWY 111
Palm Desert,
California USA 92260
Hotel Website
How Do I Check-In
The doors will open at Noon and it will be first come first serve for seating arrangements. We will need EVERY MINUTE to set up for you. So please do not enter Salon 3 or 4 banquet rooms until the doors are open. Please don't sit where goodies bags or scrapbook supplies are. We ask that everyone try to be respectful of others around you. We want this retreat to be GREAT for everyone!
Hotel room check-in is through the front desk in the lobby. Just let them know you are with Desert Scrappers. You may check into your hotel room at anytime, the hotel does its best to make sure rooms are ready before the usual check-in time but please be aware there may be a time that you have to wait for your room to be completely made up and ready for check-in.
** Doors open at 9am for those who have booked the Thursday add-on package.

Scrapping Times:
You may set up on Friday at Noon (or 9am if you have paid for the add-on Thursday package) and scrap all day and all night until 6pm on Sunday. You may leave your supplies up all weekend. Leaving your belongings out will be at your discretion. I have never had a problem in the past but, Desert Scrappers is not responsible for lost or stolen items. I do shut the doors each evening so no one may look into the area. The hotel has offer to allow the last person each night to lock up and the first person each morning to open the room since there will be no additional security. This is still on the honor system and no ID's will be checked

Swap Box:
We will have a box available to you to drop off things you no longer want and take items that someone else no longer wants that looks like treasure to you! This program works on the honor system. All items left at the end of the weekend will be donated to The Miriam House a local center for underprivileged pregnant women. They will use the items to make albums for their new arrivals. Any items that the Miriam House may not be able to use will be donated to local schools. As always we love additional donations especially for this and other worthy causes. Just please mark your item so they go to the correct charity group. Thank you!

Vendors & Classes:
We will have an opportunity to see all the latest and greatest products and shop all weekend long!

Vendor List:

* Little Crop Shop
* Scrapbook Girl
* Close To My Heart

Croppin' Cutie Scrapcans in both the mama and baby size will be making an appearance too.

Jennifer Priest will be offering two special make 'n' takes on Friday night. Please join us for these great projects since no classes will be offered on Saturday.

Pack comfy clothes and layers to wear due to the banquet room temperature variations. Evenings seem to be cool in the scrapbook room so you might want to bring a sweater or jacket.

Check the local weather.

*** Don't forget your PJ's for the PJ contest on Saturday night!!

A very limited amount of tools will be provided so please pack accordingly.
# Sizzix
# Cricut

Levi & Leia getting ready to start the long birthday celebrations.
(Jazzy's bday party July 26)

I know I have been a bad blogger. I blame my broken computer, lol. Good thing hubby is an IT man cause it needed and still needs lots of love with repairs. We are just so busy around here. We have been celebrating Leia's 5th birthday for almost 3 weeks now. First we did Disneyland and dinner with the Princesses, then we dyed her hair with pink of course. Plus we had a small family day to celebrate. It is finally coming to a close just in time to get ready for Kindergarten. I can not believe it! Lots going on on the Levi front too: Doctor said his Congenital Muscular Torticollis is now healed. YEAH! I can tell how much rounder his head is compared to birth. Plus an official Levi weigh-in on August 13th: 16 lbs, 25.5 inches and 3.5 months old. He takes after Daddy that's for sure, where does the time go? More pictures to come soon.
Now it's time to buckle down and work on September's Retreat

More to come...

From my facebook update since I don't have internet access on this trip

Laura R Miller recovered from the flu only to run out of town for Leia's b-day celebration in Disneyland. Final on the internet again but only for a moment since I am at CTMH Leadership in Long Beach. I will have lots to share when I return

Wednesday, July 22, 2009


Thanks to Nancy K, one of my CTMH sister I know Nana is well and starting to recover. I can not say as much for myself though. Retreats always wipe me out but everything with Nana has been especially hard. Then of course I was going to play catch-up and Leia came home yesterday sick. Starting around 6pm she threw-up regularly until the wee hours of the morning. Now almost 24 hours later she is finally not throwing up and I got some Tylenol in her so her fever broke, YEAH!! Sadly, she still hasn't wanted to eat but luckily the leftover Ginger Ale from my pregnancy has helped her keep hydrated.
I little update on what has/hasn't been done:
- all CTMH orders have been placed
- no checks or payments have been processed/ deposits
- September's Retreat will be addresses 30 days out

My Nana

Sorry I have been MIA. Here is my update why:

First I was hoping to recover from the wonderful DS Scrappy Weekend in which I got some scrapping done since Shelia G. took care of most of the on site hosting. Thank You Shelia! But then I got a frantic call from my mom, Sunday night. My 91 year old Nana passed out for some unknown reason. My mother performed CPR and someone called 911. Nana was rushed to UCLA Medical Center. All I knew by the early hours of Monday was that Nana was in lots of pain and nothing not even the max dose of Morphine could help.
We don't know much more on why she passed out it could have been related to her dementia. Good News is she is making a fast recovery even though she still has a lot of pain. And for some reason can not feed herself (maybe related to the pain?) We still don't know when she will be released.

Hopefully after all this craziness I can start on my recovery from the retreat and lack of sleep, if that is possible with a 2 month old. Soon our regular updates and information about September's Retreat will start.
