Spring is here!!! It POURED here this weekend, Soccer starts tonight, my nose has been running non stop and I wake up with my eyes glued shut!! Those are just some of the offical signs of Spring for me!!

There are only 30 some days of school left, I just can't believe it! Can't believe that Noah will finish Kindergarten and that Ciaara will be starting Kindergarten in the fall! WOW--they are getting big!

I still keep getting bit by the scrapping bug and have done quite a few layouts! I'll share a few! :D

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great week!

I've been scrapping a little!! My scrapping motto lately is.......

Fast, Easy, Simple layouts and Open Space is my Friend!

Here are 2 layouts to show what I mean. I didn't spend much time on either one and I really am pleased with both of them!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Our world is forver changed yet again! How can one person, one crazy evil person take away our sense of security. I am scared for the world my children are growing up in! I am scared that they have to lose their innocence sooo quickly.
Today was a hard day for me........ Noah saw some stuff on the news about the school shooting. Yes I left the TV on and he started asking questions. It started out innocently and he even was talking about how he would kick and beat up a guy like that and all of a sudden it turned scary for him (I wasn't doing much talking at this point) and he started the hard questions..... are there bad guys like that in Wisconsin Mommy? Can that happen in my school? Why didn't those kids fight him, did they fight him?? Mommy, I thought God only made good people? (Questions that have all floated through my mind of the last couple of days.) He was very upset, he was crying and quite fidgety. I tried to answer his questions. I told him all people are born good and that they choose their own ways that this guy was mean and didn't have God in his heart. I told him that this is rare and not something for him to worry about. I reassured him that in every tragedy people learn things and that they will learn how to better protect schools and watch for people with these kind of problems.
My little guy is so smart and so full of concern and worry, he gets that from me.
I gave him extra attention and lots of love tonight and then I tucked in my sweet boy and wished him sweet dreams.

My heart and prayers go out to all the people who lived and died in this tragedy, all the familes left behind and for all of us sitting here with worried hearts.

God Bless!

Looks like I was tagged by my friend Shannon!

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

1. I am a SUPER picky eater.
2. I love watching baseball--well the Minnesota Twins baseball games:)
3. I never wanted to do anything but be a mom.
4. I drink chocolate milk almost every morning.
5. I am the shortest one in my family, my sisters are taller then me and I never even got as tall as my mom.
6. I get grossed out really really easy by a number of things.

Nothing much happening around these parts! I am relaxing from our busy weekend!
Yesterday I spent the day with Ciaara at school. She was celebrating her birthday at school (there was no school on Friday or Monday and Thursday they celebrated Easter) I had tons of fun! The girls are so cute and wanted to sit by me and hold my hand and I had to draw them all a picture!

I also wanted to share some layouts..... I did these a while back but haven't shared them!
These first two are from sketchs on the Sketch This blog. They have some GREAT sketches!

This layout is a direct scrap-lift from Crystal Jeffrey Rieger -she is a Memory Makers Master and her layouts were in the magazine talking about scrap lifting yourself. I was in a slump when I read it and decided to scraplift her! :) I usually don't scraplift an exact layout-- I usually start and then go off on my own way but this time it all just fit so perfect I couldn't resist!
Thanks for reading!

I was published in the April Issue of ScrapStreet's Ezine!
I am soooo excited!!! You can go HERE to see my layout.

I have a little girl that is about to turn 5 on Saturday--5 years old I can't believe it!
It is unbelievable to me that my baby can be turning 5 and I get all choked up even thinking
about it!! Where does the time go? She is getting soo big and so grown up and its sooo much fun seeing her become this young lady--somedays I swear she acts like she is 13 and some days I look at her and still see a precious baby.

I didn't get any scrapping done this weekend, I just didn't feel like it. I can't believe I just said that outloud lol.... I am going to try and scrap today!

The MN Twins have their season opener game tonight and we all can't wait!! We will be eating our supper in the living room watching the game at 6:00 WHOOOHOOO!

Hope you had a great weekend--Happy Monday!
