Week 141: NEWS


We didn't have anything grand and exciting to share with you when we originally came up with this cue word.  We're finding it rather fun to be able to announce some wonderful news with you this week, however!  Gillian and her husband welcomed a baby boy into their household on April 1st!  James George Ross surprised everyone with an early arrival, weighing 6 lbs. 13 oz.  Isn't he precious?!!!


Given the way this week's cue word matches up so perfectly with James' arrival, feel free to create a baby themed card to help us celebrate!  Also, be sure and go say hello to Gillian on her blog!  She'd love to hear from you!
