He's a Little Excited...

...to have his first baseball game!  Marcel got his uniform at practice last night and was thrilled.  "I have my uniform.  I'm number 3.  It has my name on my shirt.  And they spelled my name right.  I have socks too.  And you didn't have to give me pants Mommy, my coach gave me pants."  I don't think he took a breath until the end of all those sentences.  Of course, when we came come we had to make sure it fit and take a picture since daddy was out of town.  We showed it to him as soon as we walked in the door!  Have to say though...it is a bit of a crisis as the St. Louis Cardinals are huge rivals of the Cincinnati Reds.  But we'll live!  The season kicks off for Marcel next weekend. More baseball pictures to come!


I have a card to share too for the current Runway Inspired Challenge.  I loved the pop of color against the green and the strong graphic lines in the inspiration photo.  I played along with new WPlus9 & PaperSmooches stamps along with a Verve sentiment.  I'm thinking I'm going to make a set of these cards with different color flowers.  Look for lots more WPlus9 and PaperSmooches over the next few days!
