Without Mommy- the house would go to poop!

This morning I woke up with a really bad migraine and my DH was still at work. When the kids woke up- I asked them to just sit in my son's room and watch a DVD. That lasted for about 2 minutes before they all went downstairs. I heard them let the dogs in. The dogs went up and down the stairs a few times. I heard them fighting over bananas. And at one point the baby came into my room (how did she get out of her crib?) holding her wet diaper. About 45 minutes later my DH came home. Here is what he came home to:

-poop and pee all over the floor (presumably from the puppies)

-banana peels all over the floor

-kids sitting at the table eating strawberries. They were pulling the stems and leaves off and they were also on the floor

-one of the puppies was eating a strawberry on the carpet

-Candee (the other puppy) was eating a candy cane off the floor (Now seriously- where did that come from?!!!) I guess she has earned the nickname of Candee Cane!!!

-Makenzie had a dirty diaper and (not to gross anyone out) the poop was all the way up to her shoulders

-Laynee was diaper less and he couldn't find her diaper but did discover that her crib was wet

- And finally he found me laying in bed


So now he knows what would happen if I didn't get out of bed and take care of the kiddos!!! Once he got over the initial shock of what he found- he had to laugh. When he told me about it, my reaction was "Did you take a picture?" It would have been a great scrapbook page!!! And it i,s a good thing that I have the BEST hubby- or I might not be around to type this right now!
I have a Christmas card for ya today! I used a sketch from the Got Sketch class. I love this sketch!!!!
I think you could actually use the insert to share a holiday recipe, a family picture, a gift card, a little note, etc.
The patterned paper is just some random paper that I found in my stash. But it would look great with the SU! Dashing paper from last year. But I only have a few scraps left. I can hardly wait to see what this year's holiday paper will look like. I will have the catty in my hands in just 3 weeks!!!
Recipe:
Stamps: Merry and Bright (last year's holiday mini), Just Celebrate (Occasions Mini)
Paper: random patterned paper, Real Red, Whisper White, Garden Green
Ink: Black, Real Red
Other: Lipstick Red Copic, Circle punches, scallop punch, tab punch, red grosgrain ribbon, staple

That is great that your hubby laughed...I think myself and my hubby would have freaked and then felt bad afterwards, so thumbs up for being able to laugh about it. I love this card and it would make such a cute christmas card with your fam pic attached. Good idea, I might have to do that! :)

I hope your migrane goes away soon! What an awful mess, but I know my house would fall apart without me here too. I am dreading what it is going to look like after me being at CHA for 3 days.

Very cute card! I just love that sketch.
