Spring Break is OVER

Back to school tomorrow. Not looking forward to having to drag my butt and the kids butts out of bed. But I will do it! I get a few hours to myself tomorrow!! I have to say, I'm looking forward to it. Granted, it is only 3 hours, but it is 3 hours of ME time! I don't sound overly excited, DO I?

Creative MESS!

There was a post at Create My Keepsake asking if you are a messy scrapper. HA! Messy is the only way I now how to scrap...or do anything else. Those who know me know organization is not my "thing". My corner desk is in the living room so there isn't much room for all my stuff. I keep telling my husband I want a room added to the house but he isn't going for it. I've even asked my BIL to build me one. No one will help me out! So...for now this is what my corner of the living room will look like.

It's the Weekend!

Today is Katie's birthday party. She is so excited! Looking forward to having family and friends over. Friday I got an e-mail from Scrapbook Trends!!! They requested a layout for the August Issue! It's a layout or Brendan, my best friends son when he was a newborn. So she is excited too. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

March 22, 2008

Today was a pretty uneventful day. Did some last minute Easter basket shopping. The kids should be happy with what the Easter bunny brought them. Yesterday we dyed eggs at Grumpy and Grandma's house. Beth came over and so did Grandma and Theresa. The eggs turned out cute and I even got one that says I LOVE YOU MOM from Kate! OH!! I got to feel my little nephew kick for the the very first time too!! (Twice!) I was so excited. Every other time I have tried, he just doesn't cooperate. This time he obliged his dear aunt! Beth looks wonderful and her belly gets bigger every time I see her! Getting up early to go to Mom's church for Easter mass tomorrow, brunch with my family and then dinner with Paul's side. Busy day! Happy Easter everyone!

It is Kate's 6th birthday today. I really can't believe that she is 6 already. Granted, she does act like she is 16...but that is another story! I was in class today helping out and last night I made brownies for their snack. They sang Happy Birthday and I took a bunch of pictures of her and all her friends. After class we went to lunch with her teacher and then it was off to PetSmart. She got to buy a Betta Fish for her room. She is so excited! She named him Oscar after the other one she had a few years ago. I even called the radio station to have them wish her a Happy Birthday. We did it last year and I talked to the same dj. He said her name and where she was from and said he would talk to us next year! She loved that! She is patiently waiting to open the rest of her presents. I'm being a mean mom and making her wait until Dad gets up so he can see it too. Tonight we are all going to dinner at Red Robin to celebrate. Next weekend is her birthday party with the rest of the family. So, it's a busy fun day today on my baby's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATIE!

So Excited!

I got an e-mail Friday night from Scrapbook Trends Magazine. They requested one of my layouts for their Vacation Idea Book! It is a layout with pictures of Kate and I. Self portraits that we took in the back of the jeep on our weekend trip last summer. So the pictures are a little goofy! I told Kate we were going to be in a magazine and she is so excited! She can't believe that she is going to be in a magazine! Can't wait to see her face when we get it in the mail!

Some Cherry Arte!!

For April's DT work at Scrapbook Oasis, Dionne sent some WONDERFUL Cherry Arte! I got the Girl Power Collection. The colors are wonderful and it is SO easy to work with. (THANKS DIONNE!) Had to use this new picture of Ty and Kate. Kate snuck in a kiss and I just love Tyler's reaction to his sister kissing him. I think I'll go create another layout with my new gorgeous papers.
Have a great weekend!
