Template # 134

**Edit 6:15pm** Linda, I did get your email! Thank You!
And for everyene else the challenges do run till midnight tonight!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. We have had a few interestingly long days around here. It all started Thanksgiving morning when I awoke to the sounds of the boy getting sicking all over the hallway. By evening he was feeling better and grandpa said he could lay on the couch at his place as easy as he could at home so all three kids went to grandpas for the night.

I swore I was not going out shopping Friday morning but my boyfriend wanted to go so I tagged along with him and got a real kick out of it. He has never been Black Friday shopping and had absolutely no clue. He was amazed at the number of people up and shopping at 5 am. I tried telling him, that if he was serious about the item he wanted he better be there a couple of hours early. Needless to say I got a good silent laugh out of it all. If I had laughed out loud I probably would have gotten left at the store. However we did come home with a couple of items. They weren't the Friday early specials but we got a few things.

About noon I went to pick up the younger two from grandpas. By dinner time the youngest was getting sick. So Friday night was spent sitting up with her. Saturday morning the oldest came down with it. And by 8 pm Saturday night I was sick in bed to.

It's an odd one to be thankful for this year, but I am thankful that we stayed home this year instead of traveling out of state to relatives.

I should be in bed, but I am fed up with laying down! So instead I'm curled up in my chair with a blanket watching a movie that I've seen 100 times. That's bad when the most comfortable place to sit in this house for me is my computer chair.

Hopefully I am on the mend, mostly just weak now. I hope to get back to the freebies on a regular basis again.

But with out further ado

Here is today's freebie Template #134

click the preview to download.
no hot linking please

If you sent in a layout for the birthday bash challenges I will try and get your download links out to you tonight. But just encase I fall asleep early, I promise I will have them out by noon Monday.

Also because of the lack of interest in the challenges, even after more time was given for those that requested it. No one has sent in a layout since the extra time was given. I highly doubt I will run anymore challenges.

At times I get so few thank yous/comments that I have been on the verge of stopping the freebies all together. So if you download Please, Please leave a comment!

Until next time...

I hope you're feeling better! The little ones here finally seem to be on the mend and Nathan is scheduled to have his tubes put in in about a week and a half...

I appreciate the work you put into making and giving out your templates and kits, and it's sad that so many people download and so few take the few minutes (seconds really since you can leave an anonymous thank you) to say thank you. There are so many designers out there that don't get the thanks they deserve for the hard work that they share.
Thank you for the templates and hope you have a speedy recovery!

Thanks so much for the new template! I'm glad you got my layout ok tonight. I'm glad I managed to get 3 out of the 4 challenges done. I'm so sorry you and your family have been sick. I hope you will all be better quickly. We're all fighting colds that have hung on for amost 2 weeks now. My 1yr old granddaughter is in daycare and I think she brings all the "bugs" to us! LOL!

Thank you for the template!! Sorry I didn't get to complete your challenges! I thought you extended it to Dec 6 for some reason :o( I've been very sick for the past week & my kids have been too, so I feel your pain! Hope you're feeling better! Maybe sickness & the time of year has something to do with the lack of participation? Sorry to hear it didn't work out.
