scrapy cards!!!

count em' 58 cards. I have been totally loving making cards over the last 4 days. I went to a farmers market last Saturday and found a S.U. lady who had tons of retired stamp sets. I bought one "noteworthy" and the rest is history... I have officially filled my box with birthday, friend, love, bliss, and baby cards.... only the thing with it is I had a huge box of scrap paper from scrapbooking that I didn't know what to do with. So each card is random size and shape just to use up my paper. How fun!
So friends and loved ones, get having babies and giving me reasons to send love, friend and whatever else cards... OHHH and while I've been crafting up a storm... I have been listening to this awesome set of CD's that a neighbor lent to me. I highly recommend it. Totally giving me a new perspective about life, relationships and my lovely marriage. ENJOY!

What I love about Preschool!

Nick the Preschooler has become quite the wonder kid.... like "hum... I wonder what will happen when I make this compost." That's what he called the stuff in the green bucket.
He came home from preschool today all excited about color. They experimented with shaving cream and 2 colors. This sparked his creativity and he tried lots of things.... including the compost and the color explosion trick.
1Tbsp oil... drops of food coloring... mix with a fork... drizzle slowly into a jar of clear water.... watch the colors explode!

I'll admit his curiosity sparked mine as well. We had fun experimenting together.

To swing or not to swing?

so this is our latest desired project. to finish the back yard and finally give our kids a swing set. we have looked and tried to plan and even went to sams to scope it do we do this or not? our back yard is so slopped that we are going to have to do some excavating in order for the thing to sit right. And it just looks gigantic. we still have to lay the sprinklers and grass and finish the paver patio and walk way.... oh and curbing. oh ya... and it's september. our summer project got away from us way too quickly. oh but what fun they will have and just to see their excitement... price wise this is the best we've seen for the size and quality. it's even too big... I don't know... maybe we should wait till spring. :)

Baby Andrew Sleeps

The boy has found his thumb. You'll notice the binki in the picture. He still hasn't fully gained control of his hands....but he can whip that thing out and the thumb in like no tomorrow.... grunting all the while. HOWEVER! He has been sleeping from 9:30 to 3:00 HALLELUIA!!! So, do I care that he is sucking his thumb? Not really.... Will I care when he is 9 and has to go to the dentist for some metal device implanted into his mouth (like his mother did) so he will stop sucking his thumb... perhaps. Oh well... for today I enjoy the sleep!

Could you just kiss those little (or not so little) cheecks? I sure could.
