Terrible 2's??? HA!

The other day I took the kids to Science/Math night up at school. I didn't want to go but being the wonderful mother I am, I took them. Well it ended up being nothing like last years and this, ticked my darling little daughter right off. And in turn, ticked me off. When that girl doesn't like something she does not hide it. I'm not going to go into the whole story but she did end up in a bit of trouble. Yelling, crying, taking away of favorite stuffed animals, grounded from the computer...what a night. And all because she didn't like what was at the school. As her mother, I have to teach her that it is NOT ok to be a "brat" even though things don't go your way. She's smart...she should know better. But she is also stubborn. What a mix! I think she learned a little lesson though, so I have no regrets on grounding her for 2 whole days.
And this would be the face that started our trip down hill. (A friend managed to snap a picture so I have proof!) Oh the terrible 2's have nothing on this 7 year old.

Oh that face...she is lucky I love her dearly!!

Have a good weekend!

Kate and I got to go to the rodeo with her riding instructor and a few other people last weekend. It was our first time and it was pretty interesting. Got to see the bull riders...those guys are freakin crazy! Kate had a great time...even got a little taste of PETA. That was interesting. She is already telling me we have to go to another one...such a country girl!
This week, the kids had the entire week off school for winter break. They drove me a little crazy but most of the time they were pretty good. Back to school on Monday.

So, today we got enough snow to get a snow day for the kids. They were so excited. So excited, that they couldn't find it in their hearts to sleep in. They were up by 7:30 a.m. which is before the time we get up for school. Thanks kids!
They were outside of course. Lots of snow so that means snowballs needed to be made. (And thrown at each other.) Grandma bought them snowball makers a few years ago and they love them. No handmade snowballs for my kids! They need cool contraptions!

I was outside taking pictures for awhile but then I came in and managed to get a page done. It's a challenge for a BOOK OF ME over at the Mosy. I managed to get it done and plan on doing more pages about me. Even though it's hard to do! Thanks Christa for getting me going on this!

Now, it's getting later and I need to go practice spelling words with Tyler. Have a great rest of the week!

Ummmm...Happy New Year!

Ok, so I'm a little late with the New Year wishes. A month late. But who the heck is counting!! So far, we have had a pretty good start to the year. The kids are doing well in school, Kate is still taking riding lessons and Ty is playing basketball. We are keeping busy.
I am finally getting back to scrapbooking. The past few months I just didn't have any creative urges. Didn't make layouts, didn't make cards and didn't even shop for scrap supplies! But, I am happy to say, I think I am coming back to scrapbooking life! I missed it! Sitting at my desk when the house is quiet is so relaxing. And I just missed putting a page together.
Over at The Mosy Scrapper, Julie gave us a challenge to use a funky picture. This is the layout I did for that challenge! (thanks for the inspiration, Julie!)

This morning Tyler had a basketball game. They won 15-10. I'm telling you, these boys are getting more and more aggressive. They have changed a lot this year. Even Tyler had a foul called on him. (We did tell him he needed to get more aggressive - and I guess that's what happens!) Now they are 3-1 for the season. GO MAGIC!
Other than that, nothing overly exciting is going on. It is cold over here in Michigan. No snow...which if fine with me since people in MI tend to forget how to drive when it snows. Even though we get it ever single winter. Oh well, going to enjoy the weekend. Hope you have a good one too!
