Snow Pics

Well I remembered tonight to upload my pics from the weekend on to my computer. I just got some new Fancy Pants Paper, Arctic Chill that will go perfect with my pics. Now if anyone knows where I can get some snowflake chipboard LMK.



Jeffrey and Jamie

The kids had so much fun playing in the snow. They didn't want to go in. I had to bribe them with hot chocolate LOL.

Brrr it's cold outside

Well we just got back yesterday from spending the weekend in South Lake Tahoe. It was so cold. It snowed the entire time we were there. It was really beautiful watching everything turn white. I am sure some of you who have snow all winter long probably think no biggie. LOL Well since where I live it does not snow (thankfully) I can appreciate it in short spurts. I am typically someone who does not enjoy winter what-so-ever! Well except for Christmas. :) I still need to upload my pics of the kids playing in the snow when I get home. I will try to post some of them later this week.

Also, some of you might remember me telling you about my son participating in his school's Oral Language Faire. Well the first round of competition was today. The verdicts in and they made it to District Finals! YAY!!! So next month they will be competing against other kids in their grade level from other schools. I am so proud of him. Can't wait to get home and hear all about it. Well that is about it in a nutshell for now. I am working on my x-mas cards. Slowly but surely. LOL This is the latest I have mailed them in a very long time! Have a great week everyone!

Are you done yet?

With your Xmas shopping? I'm not. I still have to figure out a few gifts. Plus one I bought online came damaged and of course now they are all sold out online and in the store. Figures! Well last Sunday I was shopping a Kohl's and Jamie picked out a pair of holiday earrings. She will have had her ears pierced for about 6 weeks next week. Figured the girl needed some holiday jewelry LOL

Anyways here are a couple cards that I made this week. Played around with a new stamp that I have and some Cosmo papers that needed to be used

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

So I was tagged TWICE

But they were for the same set of questions/rules. So thank you Laura and Debbie LOL. So here we go!!

Here are the 7 things you may not know about me:

1) I hate bridges, all kinds, it can be a big huge one like the Golden Gate or a little foot bridge going over a little stream. HATE THEM! Weird I know

2) Cilantro is gross. I won't touch it. Makes me want to hurl LOL

3) A million years ago, ( well not quite a million) I wanted to be a Physical Therapist. Yea not gonna happen.

4) I am a Disney fanatic. I would go to the parks every month if I could afford it and lived a little bit closer. Matter of fact I think I like Disney more than my kids LOL

5) I wish I had the natural born talent to sing, cuz I don't, not even close!

6) I still keep in contact with my Kindergarten teacher. Do you??

7) And last but not least, I have read all four Twilight saga books 3 TIMES! And when I get them back from my Best friend I will be starting them again. Can we say obsessed? Still trying to figure out when I can go see the movie AGAIN LOL.

Have a great day everyone. I should have some cards to share with you tomorrow!

Yes Really....

Two days in a row. I figure I have lots of catching up to do.

So yesterday I got to get out of work early because Jeff was stranded in the Grocery store parking lot. His battery finally pooped out in his car and jumping it was not cutting the mustard. So I flew up the highway to go rescue him and then flew over to the school to pick little Jeffrey up. I mean it when I say I flew. Well almost, I was driving fast enough that it sure felt like it. LOL.

When I got to the school I got a chance to talk to Jeffrey's teacher which I don't get to do very often. He had stayed after school to practice his part in a skit some students in his class are doing. Our school district has this thing every winter called the Oral Language Faire. Kids from each grade compete in front of a panel of judges. They act out a story or poem, something along those lines. Each school has one group from each grade that moves on to the district competition. SO anyways, I am really proud of Jeffrey for doing this. Last year his teacher wanted him to do it but he would have been by himself. He was not ready for that. This year his teacher has set up half a dozens kids to work together. She said he was doing great, knew his part and helped keep the other kids on track. Proud Mom can you tell? Remember he is only 7 and last night he performed it for me while I was working on dinner. Very cute! I hope they move on.

Well enough of that. Here are a couple projects that I created over at Crop Addict last month with our Sponsor Tada Creative Studios. Love thier papers

Well thats it for now. I am sure you will be seeing more of me this week!

I'm so embarassed

TWO MONTHS since I have blogged. I cannot believe I have let it go that long. Shameful really. I am sure there is a ton to catch up on. Let me just start by what this last weekend entailed LOL. We had our sorority x-mas party on Saturday. We went out to dinner and then saw Forever Plaid. It's a little musical. I enjoyed it! We got to meet the actors after the show. Cute guys! Here are a couple pics from the night

Me and my Girl Ali

Me and KP

Friday night we dropped the kids off with my mom and Jeff and I went out to dinner and then saw Four Christmases. Freaking Funny! Got to go see it!

And for good measure here is an ornament I made out of a paper mache box that I picked up at Mike's this weekend.


I know I have a bunch of other scrappy projects as well as a couple tags that I have to get caught up on. I promise I will work on those this week.

Have a great week everyone!
