Ta Da

Here's what the new bedroom looks like it. We still have a few little things to do but at least all the furniture (some new) is in the room.

A Few More Layouts

Here's a few layouts I did last Wednesday in addition to the two I made for Marnie's Wellies challenge. The challenge layouts are posted on the Schnockered Scrapper blog. The one on the left is a picture of the kids with their Great Grandma Beckert. I always make sure to get pictures of them with her every time we visit. I'm thinking next time I should get a picture of her and I since I don't have any recent pictures of us together!!

Hockey Player or Jack-o-Lantern

So what do you think?? I said Seth looks like a Jack-o-Lantern and Marc says he looks like a hockey player. Either way he's still the cutest boy I know!! He was very excited to have lost another tooth. He was a little disappointed that he didn't loose it at school as he really wants to bring a tooth home in one of those cute little tooth holders. Oh well maybe next time!

Have fun digging out of this wonderful snow, UGH!!

Todays Quote

OK, so today's calendar quote is from Ralph Waldo Emerson and it says "Men are what their mothers made them." Let me just say that for certain men that I know it explains alot.

I've already received and sent out the first 2009 e-mail entitled "Getting to Know Your Friends". Usually when it asks what my favorite day of the week is I say Friday, as that's usually wind down from the week. But after further thought (and reading Dianne's answer) I wonder why I don't put Wednesday. That is the one night a week (most weeks anyway) that I get to call mine. I get to go hang out with my good friends and scrap. And I am so looking forward to going tonight. Seems like it's been forever and technically it was last year since I've been. I have so many ideas and layouts I want to work and hopefully I'll accomplish something. There's also going to be a weekly challenge which I LOVE the idea of. That certainly motivates me and usually gets me going in a direction I may not of thought of on my own.!

Hope everyone else enjoys their Wednesday!

Good Morning

This is the quote of the day from my new calendar...."Sing out loud in the car even, or especially, if it embarasses your children". I LOVE this one and I do it as often as I can.

Our bedroom is in total disarray. It's finally getting the well-deserved makeover it needs. It's been primed and tomorrow the new color goes on!! After that time for the new flooring. I'm hoping to get to Kohl's over the weekend to get some new pillows and maybe even some new bedding. I'll take pictures to post when it's all completed.

I've been up since 8:00am this morning. All the kids are still sleeping and I have gotten so much accomplished! I've been writing a letter to Matthew since Christmas day and I finished that up to get in the mail. One of my resolutions was to send him a weekly letter. So far I'm off to a great start!! LOL...we'll see how long it lasts.

Melody and Hawk are coming over this morning. We were supposed to have a scrap/play date before Christmas but Seth got sick and we had to cancel. So far it looks like a go for today. I'm hoping to scrap my Christmas cards/pictures from last year and maybe this year too if I have time.

Well it's time to end the silent solitude. Better get the kids up so they can get breakfast before company arrives. Hope everyone has a great day!!
