Roller Skating Rock Star!

Kate was invited to a Roller Skating Birthday Party 2 weeks ago and can I tell you...IT WAS SO FUN! Kate had never been roller skating before and I didn't know how well she would do. We got there, got the skates, had them tighten the wheels a bit so she didn't roll into a wall at full speed, and we put the skates on!!! Right away she started rolling around on the carpeted area. Got a little annoyed b/c the wheels didn't move enough. So, had to get one side UNtightened. Much better!
She started off slow but after a bit, MAN, was she flyin! Her friends managed to get her off the carpet and onto the rink. That lasted all of 3 minutes. After a hard landing on her butt, the slippery floor didn't appeal to her. So, the carpet was where she stayed. But it didn't slow her down. It was hilarious watching her and her friends. Skate, skate, fall...(and hard). Get back up, skate, skate, skate, FALL, get back up! Start all over! She had a blast and I loved watching her fly around at full spead. Now, she is asking for her birthday party to be at a Roller Rink. We have until March but I think it's a great idea! I used to LOVE going to the rink when I was younger and cool! (LOL!) I might just put on some skates next time we go!
Here are a few pictures of the Rollerskating Queen in action!

Layout for a Challenge

Did this one for a challenge I posted over at The Mosy Scrapper. Took a picture of my book and feet up while I was on my weekend get away with my hubby. Ahhh...the simple things in life!

The December kit is on sale now at The Mosy Scrapper. The kits Ralphie and Crystal are so cute! Christa really put together some great Christmas kits. I did a few pages with the Crystal kit. I really have a hard time with Christmas layouts for some reason but I managed to get one out.

I also did a layout with the kit that wasn't Christmas themed. I used some pictures of Kate making picture taking more difficult than it needs to be!

Loved working with this kit. Go check it out and grab one for your Christmas pages.

3 day get away with my husband!!

Paul and I went away for 3 relaxing days to celebrate our 10th Anniversary! We went up north to a ski resort and it was GORGEOUS! Really quiet too since it is off season! Here's a few pictures from our trip! Wish it didn't go by so fast.

Halloween Pics

Here's a few from Halloween. It was SO HARD to get these maniacs to stay still for pictures this year. I finally gave up and went trick-or-treating. (don't they know by now that mommy NEEDS her picture fix?) Hope you had a great Halloween!
