My Little Cowpoke

Aaron's church nursery teacher took this picture of him. She said he would NOT take the hat off. This past sunday he wore a winnie the pooh ear flap hat even though it was quite warm outside. He keeps my days interesting. I can't believe he'll be in kindergarten next year!. Scenic Route paper, Dymo Label Maker, JoAnn's puzzle pieces. Ranger Alcohol inks. JoAnn's brads.
BTW I couldn't sleep the other night and stayed up 'til about one working on his lo. I like the way it came together. I just need to add the journaling.

Have a great day!

Project 365: 35,36,37,38,39

Day 35: Jakob probably gets it from me. Books, books, books. These are just the ones on my bedside table.
Day 36: Clouds, when I was little my mom, brother and I ALWAYS had contests to see who could find the coolest thing made from clouds. Don'tcha like that bird right there?

Day 37: Here's a common occurance in our house Thor trying to get in on the lovin'. We adopted this part chihuahua, part miniature pincher three years ago. He's about five and such a good guy. He's always trying to lick you in the face, hence the disgusted look on Jonah's face.

Day 38: Today UPS delivered some freeze dried veggies and fruits I ordered for our food storage. Honeyville farms only charges $4.59 shipping for your TOTAL order, no matter how much you order. Such a good deal.

Day 39: Finally, a girl's night out. We went to a Japanese restaurant called Samuri! What a yummy, delightful evening. I think the mushrooms I ordered on the side were my favorite. Amber brought her little guy, Samuel, he's so sweet.

Flashback Friday Finally

I think I might've added a pic of Travis and I to finish this lo. Have a super day.

Project 365: 27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34

February 8, 2009, Day 27: The kids had such a fun time doing there Valentine's for their classmates.

February 9, 2009, Day 28: I completed my first scrapbook page in ages. It's my passion and I know I need to find more time for it. I love preserving memories.

February 10, 2009, Day 29: Bathtime around this house is looked forward to with relish. Usually it's a quick shower but sometimes the kids get a good soak.

February 11, Day 30: Trips to the grocery store are common around here. I got this shot of Aaron and Jonah in the cart outside of Costco. So sweet.

February 12, 2009, Day 31: Jonah is getting so big...so fast. He's grabbing his feet and putting them in his mouth and rolling over and just making me sad that he's not a baby, baby anymore.

February 13, Day 32: Aaron has "COOL HAIR". That's what he told me. He's doing his hair by himself now, he's a big boy! I love the facial expression.
February 14, Day 33: Tessa was invited to go iceskating with her friend Kate. I too got out there on the ice and it brought back memories from when I was a child. I grew up in Illinois and we spent DAYS skating a the local ponds. My feet sure hurt when we were done though. Definitely going back as a family, but Travis said NO WAY was he getting skates on.
February 15, Day 35: What a strange day...my mom called to tell me that my paternal grandmother had called her (Last time they talked ????) I don't know how she found my mom.
She called to tell her that my "father" passed away last Sunday. What a jumble of emotions. It's not like he was ever there for us. I think he left when I was two or three. We saw him once when I was around 8. He didn't wan't to get in touch with us to tell us he was dying of cancer, I guess he was ashamed. I have a half sister and think it might be nice to get to know my grandmother (both my maternal grandparents have passed). We'll see what the future brings.

For Travis, my eternal love...since I'm HERE, and my baby is sleeping for some reason, I made a card for my love. I got a dozen roses on the counter this morning and a beautiful card. He's such a sweetie.

I'm still here...

so that means, you guessed it, I didn't get on the flight. Darn people wanting to go skiing in Utah or whatever. I MIGHT still get to go on Saturday, but that stinks because then I have to turn around and come home on Sunday. I really wanted to have some girly time. I know there's a reason for everything so I'll try to perk up. Travis took this picture of me and I got one of him in his work belt, can't say as I've ever SEEN him with it on before. Maybe I'll ask him to wear it for V-day...just kidding. Tee Hee.

I'm off...hopefully.

I hope to be going to Utah tomorrow for a friend's wedding. I'm flying standby so we'll see how that works out. That means I won't be able to post my 365 until Monday or so. Take care all and check out some of these sites for some money saving tips in these "tough economic times".

Have fun looking for that next big deal!

I Scrapped!!!!!!

This is my first lo in AGES! I'm so happy. It's really nothing super fantastic but it's getting me going. This picture of Tessa and I was taken at the UNM duck pond last month. Have any questions about the materials just ask and I'll try to answer them. Have a great day!
Here's a link to the cookie recipe, I just used the recipe from the back of the bag.

Project 365: 22,23,24,25,26

February 3, Day 22
I love to bake! These are some of my favorite cookies, Andes Creme de Menth. Yummy. I don't know how I'm ever gonna lose that 20 lbs!

February 4, Day 23: When we got DSL for our home computer, I never could have imagined the changes it would bring into my life. I have met some pretty wonderful women online...one of which I'll be meeting in person next week! YESSSS! Not to mention great recipes sites. I love the www world.

February 5, Day 24: Tessa had to do a project for the 100th day of school. We came up with this really cool idea to make flowers out of 10 beads each, I thought it came out pretty great until later that night when I reread the instructions!!!!! We were supposed to make 10 rows of 10 things and they had to be labeled 1-100. Darn creativity to heck!

February 6, Day 25: Lunch on the go...whenever I have to "go to town" I usually spend the whole day there running errands and it's usually a sure bet I'll be eating something in the driver's seat of my minivan. (What has happened to Taco Bell tacos? When I was a kid they used to be chalk full of stuff!)

February 7, Day 26: Every other week or so I have to fill up the old gas guzzler; 24 miles to the gallon doesn't get you very far. When gas was up it took at least $50.00 to fill'er up, now, thankfully it's around $30.00-$35.00. We paid $1.79/gallon today.
Have a great day!

A Special Thanks

Short post, one hand to type with... I know, have I gotten my mojo back or what, I just hope I can find the time to use it. I used Stampin' Up Whisper White craft ink for the image by Stampendous. The patterned paper is from DCWV. Label punch from SU. It's winging it's way to a special friend now!

Books, books, everywhere.

Here's a shoto of only half of Jakob's books. We're trying to purge and donate. It's not easy when he wants to keep EVERY book.

A CARD, I made a CARD!

I got to go to a scrap night last Friday. I made a couple of thank you cards for friends that gave me birthday presents. I used the recycled stack from DCWV and the beautiful Season of Friendship stamp set from SU (thanks Sarah). Have a geat day!
