Happy Memorial Day

Crazy Week

Sorry I haven't posted in a little bit. It has been a very emotional and stressful week. My father in law passed away last week, so we had the funeral and then I had to finish things for the Ambulance Banquet.

This has also been a very busy and long weekend, we had the banquet Saturday night and then we had the Races on Sunday with the Ambulance Core.

I am going to get back into the swing of this started tomorrow ...

Here are some Pictures of this weekend

This was the cake that I had ordered for our Ambulance Banquet. Chocolate Rose Bake Shop did an awesome job on it. 

She put this Candies in the corners of the bottom of the cake. The cake was a loved by all.

This was the tables with the center pieces.

Main Guest Table.. We had the name tags here and handed them out to the members as they came in to the banquet.

This is one of the other EMT's ... He is the reason why I even joined the ambulance core. He had picked me up to take this picture.

I was giving out the Top 5 Responders Awards and I had the honor of giving my husban his award for this ...

This is my little Sweetheart.. he is another EMT with the Ambulance and has been there for me when I have had a bad call and needed someone to talk.

And this is where I was on Sunday. Right at the starting gate of the races. I am a EMT on the track.

Crash on the track... no one was injured, they got back up and jumped on thier bikes and off they went to finish the race...

Well enough of my weekend...
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend ....

Gift Cards For Banquet

I am loving how these turned out... I think everyone is going to like them. I know I enjoyed making them and playing with the E2 and the American Alphabet

The Ice Cream Cone is from "Once
Upon a Princess" Cartridge, The boot
and coffee mug is from
"Cricut American Alphabet"

Trying to make them to match what the gift cards are going to be.

These are for the "Years of Service"
Pins. I used the Gift Card Cut from
"Cindy Loo" Cartridge
to make these. Had to
Make 15 red for the pins.

This is one of 14 Center pieces that I made for the Ambulance Banquet... we got the software and the balloons and was able to print our own photos on them, this was so much fun .

These were also cut using the gift card feature on Cindy Loo. These are for the name badges that we are giving out to all the members. Had to cut 70 of these.
And then I printed all the names out on white card stock on the computer and added.

Well off now to finish the rest of the Centerpieces only a couple more to finish up and then done.

Flag Hanging

Here are a few pictures of my Fire Company hanging the flags in our town and our community..

Pride of Plainfield

We started at 9:00 AM and finished around 2:00 PM.
The flags are to show our support of everyone that has fought and are fighting to for our Country.

This is my Son hanging a Flag

My hubby bringing the flag to my son that was on the ladder.
My daughter in law was helping by putting
the flags together for them.

This was when we had just started on the main road through the village of Wauregan.

My Best Friend Rachel (fellow EMS) and myself were assigned traffic duty, so we got to walk to the whole time , great day for a walk. The weather was beautiful for this wonderful event...

I would like send a special to all the men and woman that are fighting for our country... thank you for everything.

Been Busy

Sorry I have been MIA. I have been very busy this past week and it continues this week. We are getting things ready for the Ambulance Banquet this Saturday. Plus I have events that I am involved with, that we are doing with the Fire Department and the Ambulance Core.

This past Saturday we went and hung American Flags in two of the districts in our town. And yesterday we went to Tri-State Firefighter's Meet.

Last night we started putting the Centerpieces together and got half of them done. Hopefully tonight we will be able to finish them up and I am also using the Cricut to make little gift card holders for the gift cards.

I have one day this week that I am not doing anything, so I am going to spend that day working on a few things for the Craft Show that I am going to be in On June 5th.

I will post pictures of everything later today so you can see everything that I have been working on ...
