Im on a Design Team!!!

Yep that's right...most people say "wow that's cool, but what does it really mean?". Well it means I am one of 11 design team members chosen from a whole lot of other scrapbookers who applied for this design team, for a blog called Scrap Yourself. We are to make layouts for the Scrap Yourself blog and given a certain challenge for that month to scrapbook about. The term for this blog team is till February then I will apply again and hopefully be picked again. Our first challenge was to scrap from A-Z. The team was each given a couple letter and my first letter was "P" so check it out and let me know what you think.

Halloween Decor






Okay so does anyone ever go to Value Village to look for something specific, knowing you are gonna get a great deal, well because its Value Village and that is what its all about. Ya well guess again! I was on the hunt for some glassware. I wanted some glass containers and a glass cake plate. Yes I found some but not for a good deal, did i end up buying them YES, but angrily! I knew they would be more expensive if I didnt get them here but I still didnt like paying as much as I did for them.

I just love to decorate for Halloween!!!

Mount Shasta...Conquered!!!

Our climb to Cure Duchenne has come and gone. What an awesome expereince Micah and I had climbing this extreme mountain. Driving up to it was very intimidating, it was like looking at Mt. Rainier but this one I was actually climbing. Ya know Mt. Shasta is only 250 Ft. SHORTER that Mt. Rainier. So crazy!







This is the awesome team that climbed and unfortunately not all of us made it, but most of us did.

The next few pictures are of us making our camp at 10,000. We had to shovel out a wind breaker for were our tent would go and the put up our tent and get our gear organized and ready for the early morning accent and 3AM.
The picture with the guy in the red puffy is our guide, Neil, he was really cool and he dug out a cooking area and made a delicious dinner.
A beautiful picture at sun set with the other part of are team.













































Yes, here we all are at the top!!! We made it, what an accomplishment for myself and those who made it!! And one of my climbing partners was my brother, how cool is that!! And of course my wonderful husband who talks me into doing these crazy things. I loved it and the experience is unforgettable!!!

Happy Bithday Xela!!!

I cant believe Xela is 2! On August 3, 2010 was her birthday and she of course had no idea. I told her it was her b-day and she said, "yeah", that's pretty much her answer for everything. She was excited to go to Red Robin and eat and also to open presents. At Red Robin they sing to the birthday person and she stand right up on her chair and is clapping right along with all the RR servers with a huge smile on. She loved it.


Xela, our life is so much more exciting with you in it. We love you and your sisters adore you, I wouldn't want it any other way. xoxoxoxo Happy Birthday!

Good buy!!


No, No, No, not "good bye" but "good buy". The English language is so weird. Anyhoo I was at TJ Maxx the other day and spotted this super cute table and chairs set. I've been looking for one for a long time to put out on our back deck but I could never find one I want and in my price range, but then I saw this and i grabbed it!! I found those cone shaped things and got those too. They are solar powered and one glows green and the other purple, at night.

Gives me the warm fuzzies


Okay this may seem totally weird and crazy of me but....this is a stack of Ellie's clothes, which you may know is not my kid but my neighbors. I was doing a bunch of laundry today and I had a pile for Karma, Veraty, Xela (which are my girls) and there is usually one for Ellie too! Its weird but it makes me kinda happy having her clothes here and pulling them out of the clean basket to fold. Dont get me wrong, I hate doing laundry but is that weird or what??? It just give me a happy heart, I just love that little Ellie so much, just like she was one of mine.

Feels like Summer!

Oh what a tease today was. It was so beautiful out and we all enjoyed it. The girls got to go in the sprinkler, thank you Julie, and they had so much fun. I just love the neighbor hood we live in. Even the Ruby had lots of fun. We discovered she likes to "try" to bite the water coming from the hose, she just loves it.





Cheezy smile!!





I tried to get the girls to run and jump at the same time, but honestly what was I thinking I know that would never work.




Here is a video of Ruby catching the water. And this ones is Xela and a fizzy skittle.
