My Work

Uh Oh....

I think our computer at home has bit the dust finally. Jeff still has his laptop but our desktop I think finally burnt out last night. So we will have to figure something out soon. Most of my pics and music are on my external HD so that is good. Sure glad we bought one.

Anyways on to other news. Jeffrey's team won their game last night. Only the 3rd one this year in the W column for us. At this level it doesn't really matter much, But it is nice to see the boys excited because they won. Usually they go home bummed. I could get carried away about youth sports and how they are managed but I won't.

Thought I would share with you one of Jamie's new favorite songs. Well the song is NOT new but it is to her. Every time we are in the office she wants me to play it. One of these days I hope to catch her singing it. Enjoy

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

Burning Up!

This last weekend was super hot here. Jeff said we reached 107 yesterday. Not sure if that is correct but it sure felt like it. Our pool jumped 4 degrees from Saturday to Sunday. Saturday started off with Jamie's T-ball game. The helmets are so big for her little head that she has to run holding on to the helmet so it doesn't fall. Here is a little video of her first hit at a T-ball game a couple of weeks ago.


She loves playing ball. How cute is she??

Jeffrey got to compete in a program called the Pitch, Hit, Run Contest. This is a MLB related event. Basically he competed against other kids his age in pitching, hitting and running. He advanced from out local little league to the sectionals which were held this last weekend. He did a great job but I don't think enough to advance to the next round. Some lucky kid will get to go compete at the SF Giants ballpark. Sure seems like my life revolves around baseball at the moment. I hope you all had a great weekend.

Yay for Friday!

Glad the weekend is here! I'm getting my hair done tonight and can't wait. Nothing better than a fresh cut and color! So yesterday I said I would share my Hawaii trip. Back in March Jeff and I went to Oahu for a week without the kids. We were kinda celebrating our 10 year anniversary a little early. We stayed at the Marriott Ko Olina Beach Club. It is the best place we have ever stayed! I highly recommend it. Especially if you want out of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.

Here are some pics from the trip
Jeff and I taking a walk at sunsent near our resort. Yes I burned like a lobster when we first got there. And YES I had sunscreen on.

The view from the beach. I sat and read my books all week.

A stop somewhere around the island.

Kailua Beach. This beach is gorgeous. We went here twice because we loved it so much.

And for all you Lost Fans. This is the Waterfall that they showed in the beginning of the season. You know where Hurley was floating with his Guitar, Jack jumped off the top and Kate was washed up on some rock.

I got a funny story for you from the trip. One of our last days there called for Thunder Storms. You know the kind with flash flooding. Well we went into "town" to grab some food. On the off ramp there was some flooding. Well when we were leaving we had to take the same ramp to go back to the hotel. Water was still running across the road. As we hit the water a car coming the other direction was approaching at the same time. I noticed they had their window down so they could smoke. Well it was too late for us to slow down and when Jeff hit the water it sprayed EVERYWHERE! I know the driver coming the other way got soaked. Teaches them to smoke during flash flooding. LOL Felt bad for them but laughed my ass off at the same time. Something I will never forget from that trip. Have a great weekend everyone!

It's all Katie's Fault!

Well not really. For those who don't know Katie, this is Katie..

See is my little sister, literally and figuratively. This was from her Best Friend's Wedding a couple weeks ago. I spent a week in Hawaii tanning my Ass off and here she is making me look I never set foot on the beach. Between her and Jamie this white girl cannot look tan enough to fit in. Speaking of the kids here they are with Katie at the wedding.

Once again my son was a DANCING FOOL. He thought it was so cool that he could request songs from the DJ. He requested Right Round by Flo Rida TWICE!. He wanted to request NKOTB but I told him NO. Didn't think the wedding guest would appreciate that very much even though mom would have. That's my boy! He also wanted to request the Beatles. Yes he is very versatile in his music preferences. I'd like to take some credit for that :)

Have a great day! Tomorrow I will tell you about my trip to Hawaii with the Hubby sans kids :)

For all my Twi-hard Buddies

So if you are a true Twi-Hard you should have heard of the band Blue October. They recently released a new album called "Approaching Normal" I have it and love it. During the Breaking Dawn book tour Stephanie invited Justin the lead singer to join her on tour. She had him sing a song called "My Never" off the new album. Just wanted to share this song with you because I love it so much. Here is a video from the tour of Justin singing "My Never" Enjoy!

Two days in a row Tuesday

Yes so creative I know. Don't hate! LOL. Well since I have not posted anything scrappy in a while, here are a couple of my favorite things I have created recently. Some of you may have already seen these. I really have not done much in the last four months.

Made this for my Mom for Mother's day, also from CMK challenge/Crop

This was for a challenge at CMK a while back.

Jamie's school pic for the year

So I will be back with more blogging tomorrow. Have a great day.

Your Eyes are NOT deceiving you!

Yes I am here posting. It's been way too long. Pathetic really. I have decided that I am going to mix it up a little, (the blog) from now on. I guess since all of my DT duties have passed and the fact that I have scrapped very little in the last few months has helped in my absence. I always say the beginning of the year is by busiest but here we are in May and things have not slowed down. I guess you get to some point in your life when you have kids where there is no such thing as "time". Guess it just took me a little longer to figure that out.

Well since my last pathetic post here we have had 3 Birthdays. Jamies 5th, Jeffrey's 8th and Mine.

The Birthday Girl

Sorry no Bday Boy pics available at the moment. That is another thing I have been bad about. Taking Pictures. I really need to remember to take my camera with me more places.

The kids are both playing Baseball this year. This is Jamie's first year. She is on an all girls team and she LOVES it. We missed a game recently and she cried because she wasn't going to get to play. Jeffrey is still eating, sleeping and breathing baseball. He stands in the back yard facing the sliding glass door practicing his baseball swing. It is so cute. Another thing I need to get on camera! This last weekend he was in a competition called the "Pitch, Hit and Run" contest sponsored by MLB. He tied with 3 other little boys in the pitching segment so he gets to move on to the next round this coming weekend. He is so excited. I will remember to get pics of this for sure.

Hopefully later this week I can have something Scrappy for you to see. Thanks for visiting after such a long absence by me.
