It's Wonderful and Long Post

Those kids:

Rachel has been cracking me up lately.

While brushing her hair this morning she told me that I need to be careful, she's a little fragile.

But when I asked her how she got her skinned knee, she told me that was how she became a 'grampire'.  Really, a grampire?  Yes.  Apparently she died and came back to life as a grampire, now she kills people with her teeth.  Oh, the joys of having an older sibilng to teach her these things, lol.

A grampire, lol. 

And Elizabeth has had her first softball game today... sort of. It wasn't a real game, it was jamboree day with 'fun' games.  Yes, fun, but also to see how the other teams are playing, lol. 

She played first base and she did excellent!

And since this post is long already, let's just make it longer, lol.  Here are a few non-Disney layouts that a few of my creative team put together.

Time Warp - it's just a jump to the left....

Spring Foward:

I woke up this morning by the sweet buzzing sound of my alarm and after I hit snooze a couple of times I did get up.  I moved Elizabeth towards the shower to get ready for school, then I sat down with a hot cuppa joe and spent a little bit of time on the computer.

As I was getting ready to walk Elizabeth to the bus, Shaun looks at me and says, "What is she still doing here? You're going to have to drive her now." 

I'm still completely oblivious, even after that comment, while I look at him like there's something wrong with him and tell him that there is plenty of time to get to the bus.

That is about when I realized that I am now officially a time change dork.  More than a full 24 hours after the time change and I am just realizing that my daughter's bus left almost an hour ago.

Just call me a time change dork, I've officially joined the club.  And I can't even come up with a good excuse, lol.

Here is what I have new in the store this week:


Irish Eyes


Here are a few layouts:

Well, I have a full day today and an  hour late start, lol. 

Happy birthday to Shaun, my sweet husband!

Fear Factor

Why are my kids scared of flies?

I mean really, of all the things in the world to be scared of, they choose flies.  Elizabeth won't use her bathroom, because there is a fly in there. If Rachel sees a fly, she'll shriek and run the other way.

I don't get it.

My kids are wierd.  LOL
