So sleepyheaded today

This week I am tired. My two year old has been waking up at 4am every day and trying to play. My older daughter did this too when she was this age, and all I can say is I hope this phase passes quickly. Oi.

We did have a great week of sunshine here in Oregon which was wonderful. The weather was so nice in fact, that we were wearing shorts on Sunday. And of course it is now raining again, lol. I certainly don't mind the rain, and in fact I even enjoy it. But I like it when it doesn't rain every day. I like it when it rains, maybe two days a week. That is perfect. My kids are always happier when they get outdoor time... but that is probably true for most kids, lol.

Here are my most recent pages; as always, click on the titles for credits and journaling.

(This page was done for a photo swap at Little Dreamer Designs, among the CT. My swap was with Audrey Neal, and these are her cute girls. Of course I kept the page and put my own sweet girls in there so I can have a copy too! :) )

Attitude is everything

Have a great day!

I hate coming up with titles for blog entries. Why is it I can come up with a page title, but not a blog entry title? Of course I guess my titles aren't all that creative, but still they are better then 'hmmm'.

Product alert: Have you seen these new paper cuts from Sausan Designs? They are so cool and yet delicate and pretty. I've used them on my New Sisters page below and I think they finish the page perfectly.

And how about these beautiful flowers by Jofia Designs? I bought 'em but haven't used them yet. I think I should put that on my 'to do' list for today!

Valentines Day... This year, my 8 yo daughter wrote a letter to a boy in her class and signed it 'from your secret emirer', LOL. I scanned it before she gave it to him so I can do a page about crushes and include her secret love letter. :) Nothing is sacred in my house!
Which reminds me of a cute story.
There has been this boy on her bus that has been driving my daughter crazy for almost 2 years. He is in the third grade and she is in the second grade. She calls him her 'arch enemy' because he is always 'bullying' her (aka bothering, lol). We keep telling her that he probably only bugs her because he likes her, because that is what boys do at that age.
Well, a few weeks ago, just as she was getting off the bus she paused next to his seat. She turned to him, and with all his friends watching, said "I know you like me." Then she turned and exited the bus. (She has great timing, don't you think?)
This poor boy didn't ride the bus for two weeks after that, LOL. He was still at school, he just didn't take the bus (wonder what he told his parents that had to drive him instead, lol). Finally, one day at school he walked over to her and said, "You're right, I do like you" and rushed down the hallway.
Well, he has admitted his crush, but she still thinks of him as a bully and her arch enemy, lol. And I love my daughter to pieces, she totally cracks me up.
I hope you all have a wonderful valentines day and holiday weekend!
And I have just a few pages to share. Click on the titles for credits/journaling.

Check out my new favorite kit...

I have to show you the cutest kit, it's called Arbot by Jackie Eckles, I love it to pieces! I used it for a Disneyland page, and I think I can use it again just for fun even though I have only girls. It's cool. Check it out here at Little Dreamer. (See my page below.)

I have had a sick family for the past week. I almost always get sick too but for some odd reason I am the only one that didn't get sick. Woo hoo! LOL. Actually, cleaning up after sick kids isn't really a reason to go 'woo hoo', LOL.

Okay, I've heard rumor that the writer's strike is over, but until I see major headlines verifying that is the case I'm not sure I want to get my hopes up. Anyway, it's probably too late to add many new shows before the season is over anyway. But, if you are not a subscriber to Showtime, you are in for a treat. You have to check out Dexter, it is scheduled to air on CBS the week of Valentines, and they plan to show the entire first season. It's a crime procedual with a major twist, and it will of course be cleaned up for regular television, but I don't think that will ruin it at all. In fact, even though I've seen it on Showtime, I plan to watch it again.

I'm boring, I know. Talking about sick kids, television, and now we're on to movies.

Have you guys seen the trailer for The Other Boleyn Girl yet? I am so excited, I cannot wait to see it. I already have a girlfriend date and a 'you have to be home to watch the kids' mandate to my husband so I can go, LOL. It will be so much fun! Here's the trailer if you want to check it out, click here. It's obvious from the trailer that they have made some changes from the book, but it still looks like it will be pretty terrific.

Well, anyway, I have a few pages, click on the title for credits/journaling.

My Love

Excuse any typos, my spell check won't work and I'm too tired to do it the old fashioned way :)

Thanks and have a great day!
