Pagemaps Challenge #4

I know, I've been incredibly negligent of my blog. October has been a crazy, busy month at home and at school! This is my entry for another Pagemaps contest. I got my rear in gear and entered last minute (what a surprise, right?). The rules were to scrapbook about something meaningful to you, so I chose my family. I got to use the packet my mom sent back with Andrew - thanks mom! I really like these pictures of my family. The one of Andrew was taken at the kids soccer practice the first weekend in Oct. He was holding both of the kids soccer balls and then decided to get goofy and put them on his chest area. The one of Josh was taken on his birthday and he got a suction Nerf gun and someone shot it and it happened to stick on his head. Hannah's picture was taken on the first day of school when we went to Sonic afterwards for a snack.

What's in it: Colorbok Earthtones scrap pack (paper, letters, words, extras), Memories in the Making sticky squares, Zots glue dots, Fiskars glue dots

When I'm President...

I usually don't make 2 posts in one day - let alone within 4 hrs. of each other but tonight Josh said something that was post-worthy. He told me that when he gets bigger he is going to be president one day. Big aspirations but that's okay. He fits at least one of the qualifications right now! Then he tells me that when he is president this is what he is going to say: "Follow God's choices and we love our Moms." Later he added "Love your Moms and Dads and sisters." If only everybody did that - how the nation could change!

It's been awhile...

It's been awhile since I have posted anything. I got a little busy with school. Who needs grades anyway? Apparently my principal thinks so! Yesterday was my birthday and I had a really good day. Three of my girl students made me cards and then they wrote Happy Birthday on my whiteboard. I got a food processor (cause I don't have one) and, of course, scrapbooking supplies. My birthday would not be complete with out something that supports my addiction, I mean my hobby. I also got to eat at Pei Wei's last night. We finally got one in our town and we went on the 2nd night it was open. Surprisingly, it wasn't packed. Then, I came home to a bichon frise cupcake cake. The kids helped pick it out - it was cute. Thanks to everybody who sent me cards and gifts etc. Even though I'm only 2 years away from 30 (thanks Tim for bumping me there early :-) I still had a great day!
