5 Hot Firemen and Halloween pajamas.


So why is it that the only time you have 5 cute firemen in your house, you're wearing Halloween witch pajama bottoms and an old navy thermal t-shirt that hangs down to your knees?
We had a slight emergency last night involving carbon monoxide detectors and Walgreen's batteries. Apparently in some of the detectors, you're only supposed to use certain battery brands, because the Walgreen's battery kept setting off the carbon monoxide detector. While we sat and pondered whether it was the battery or we were actually going to die in our sleep last night, divine intervention happened. 3 police cars and a St. Paul fire truck showed up at our house. Since the firemen got called to our neighbor's house to inspect their car, we had them do double duty and check the furnaces and stoves for our carbon monoxide mystery. So yeah, I'm still single. Apparently I need to invest in new pajamas.
Ok, just one blurry photo tonite, as I already took all of these cards into work with me yesterday..these little Stampendous guys from the Pixel and Pookie line are SO DANG fun to color! I love that they can do double duty, as either Christmas cards or winter generic cards! I just want to giggle every time I see his face! He's colored in with Copic markers & the background paper is a mixture of K & Company Wild Saffron Petite Stripe & Cosmo Cricket Be Good, "Believe". I bought Snowbound Pixel...(or is he pookie?) from Eclectic Paperie shortly after CHA in August this year, so I'm excited to finally be in the holiday mood to color him in & use him on cards.
