FINALLY a couple of layouts!! I've been having MAJOR scrappers block :( I struggled hard with creating both of these. I don't know whats wrong with me, I've never had my mojo blocked this bad! Hopefully I'm finding my way back to a normal scrap schedule.

The kids had their last soccer game tonight, it was soooo cute when they got their medals--they are soo proud of themselves! I am proud of both of them for playing and proud of my hubby Nate for taking the time to coach them! Ciaara was down a little that the only people that watched her this year (besides us) were Nates parents, and mentioned it again tonight (my poor girl)....last year everyone came to see Noah play.

Ciaaras last day of school is tomorrow, I can't believe it! I made a couple of gifts for her teachers.

I can't believe how much she has grown, her speech is so much better and she has really learned independence! She brought home an album today that he teacher made of her year and I cried.

Noah went on a field trip to the farm on Wednesday and got to milk a cow! He was thrilled!! He told me all about how a dairy works and what it was like to milk the cow, he even got to taste the milk. He also told me today that he made a card at school to send to the soldiers, He was beaming ear to ear with pride that a soldier would be reading his Thank You card.

We had a wonderful Memorial Weekend hanging out with new friends and going to a Twins Game!! We played games outside all of Sunday and had a wonderful BBQ. Monday was so fun watching the Twins kill Chicago 10 to 4.

Look what happens when I don't blog for a few days I ramble on and on! I think thats enough for now! Have a wonderful day, Thank for stopping by :)

Its Wednesday!! I can not believe it is Memorial Day this weekend! I've been thinking about updating all week but really I have nothing to say lol Nothing much going on in my world!

Noah was sick last week, Nate was sick last week, We had to take Ciaara to the doctor because
she got stung by something on the forehead and it swelled up bigger then a quarter! was a busy busy week! Everything is back to normal this week!

Noah had his first T-ball game last night, we made it through one inning and it got rained out! He was really bummed out! Here is a picture of our T-ball guy.

We set up our Badmiton net this weekend and I wanted out of bounds lines otherwise there is always an agurement on whether its in or not (we are all competitive here) soo I came up with the idea of spray painting the lines (we will mow the paint off)--it turned out great!

I can't think of nothing else to report, I wish I had some scrapping pages to show off but honestly I haven't been scrapping!! I have all these new stamps sitting here waiting to be used and I just have no mojo--can anyone send me some?

Have a great Holiday weekend!

Happy Mother's Day!
I had a wonderful day. I slept in until about 10:00!! lol I never sleep
that late but we were up until 3:30 am playing poker with friends.
I woke up and the kids were sooo excited for me to open their gifts...
They got me a movie and they each picked me out a pair of cute socks
(I LOVE LOVE socks lol) I also got 2 sets of acrylic stamps I really really
wanted. Nate knew I wanted them and said I could either go out to supper
at Applebees or get my stamps-- I of course picked my stamps. I still
had a wonderful supper here that he BBQ'ed for me.
We played outside a little today with the kids and I got lots of love
and cuddles from them.. I couldn't have asked for a nicer day.
I hope all of you had a wonderful day too, Happy Mother's Day to you all!

Doodling? I am a natural doodler, so much so that my step dad has called me "Doodle" since I as a teenager. Any paper that was left on the table or anywhere in my reach would have my doodling all over it.

Why can't I doodle on a scrapbook page? I guess its fear lol I like my pages to be clean and perfect and doodling on them scares me, what if I goof it up?

Well I took a little of the fear out of it and used a Doodle Genie (template) and doodled on this page! I LOVE the result!!

If you haven't tried it yet, or are too nervous try one of these templates!

T-ball starts for Noah this week, just another thing to add to our week! lol We will have T-ball on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Soccer on Thursdays and Saturdays. BUSY BUSY!

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Tuesday!

WOW !!What a crazy weekend!! Friday night we went to Menards and bought paint for almost every room in the house and stain for the deck and porch. We it just so happens this weekend was bright and sunny and no chance of rain in site--- a PERFECT weekend for staining a deck!

We threw a deck party, food and beer provided and stained our 18'x24' deck in a weekend! After we finished that Sunday afternoon we painted as much as we could on the front porch, but couldn't finish it because we needed a way to get in and out of the house! lol

Durning all of the painting fun, I snuck out and went to a Longaberger basket party and bought a basket to match the kitchen--with sunflowers :D I also played dice and drank a little with some friends I have met this year! I had a great time!

I haven't been scrapping the last couple days but here are some layouts I finished up last week!
Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!
