Sketchy Thursdays!

I got a little wild with the color scheme this week.  The green's a little bright and scary...I think I need better light in my scraproom lol.  Check out this weeks sketch at Sketchy Thursdays!

And of course my potd....yesterday was a super busy day, I watched my cousin's girls and it was super dark again in my house...wishing the sun would come back to stay!  Here they are warming up and watching a little Sesame Street with Rachael.  Today though we have sun...I'm loving the pic for today :)

Yesterday the kids were dancing around the living room and Ginger had to get in on the action, she jumped up to dance with Ellie and I love Ellie's expression!

Sketchy Thursdays!

Yay, it's Thursday!  This weeks sketch was sponsored by Nicki Sivvils and the team got to play with some super cute stuff!  This page came together in a snap and I just love the sketch this week!

And of course p365!  We had a really nasty ice storm hit us yesterday so I risked my life to get this shot.  I went while it was pouring down rain, today the yard is a solid sheet of ice so I'm glad I did this yesterday.

Yesterday was a biiiiig big day in our house.  Carter sat down and played with cars all on his own.  Amazing!
I had a second runner up too...I would have used it if Carter playing with toys wasn't such a rare occurance around here.  When people are wondering what kind of gift to get him and ask "what's he into"?  I always say's I type this he's standing next to me wrapping one of his sister's bracelets around the lamp.

But could she possibly BE any cuter?  Seriously, this is her cuteness yesterday as I was snapping away at Carter playing with his cars.

My mom cleaned out her cupboards and gave me all these plastic containers.  Carter said we could use them for "dessert" later but for now he was going to sort his cars into "cool/not cool".  I think it's safe to assume his outfit goes in the "not cool" category.

Sketchy Thursdays!

Umm, wow almost 1:00 in the afternoon and I just now realized it's Thursday.  Whew...guess I should maybe post today's Sketchy Thursdays lo eh?  Here it is, one of my recent faves!  This was *supposed* to be our christmas card picture, I even designed the cards...but never actually got around to ordering them.  Ah well, always next year right?

And of course my potd!  A quick snap of my kids on my way out the door to church last night!

A shot of my computer screen.  I have a Go Wear Fit (kind of like contestants on The Biggest Loser wear) that I bought last May and I dropped ten pounds the first month of wearing it and then long story short I broke it and I procrastinated so long that I just now got it fixed, yesterday was my first full day of wearing it again.  And during my time of procrastination and falling off the wagon I managed to gain all but 10 of the 30lbs I lost last year.  BIG BUMMER.  Glad to have my little arm band buddy back again and hoping it will help me lose a little faster this time since I can actually SEE what I'm doing, takes all the guess work out!

Lol, I think this is my favorite so far!  So yesterday, I went to take a picture of bathtime but (stupid) Ginger would not move out of the way!  If there is a bath going she is THERE!  Her face just cracks me up...and yep that's a bandaid on her ear...and yes Carter is enjoying an apple during bathtime (I didn't actually notice that until I looked at the picture!).

Potd & Scrapbook Kit Club!

Since the first was a holiday I totally forgot to put up my Scrapbook Kit Club lo's!  There are two more if you scroll down, for different Sketchy Thursday lo's!  I LOVED this kit, and I know I say that every month but the colors in this one are just right up my alley and I love the whimsy of the jolly by golly line!

A trip to get my hair cut always means a trip to grandma's for us!

Day two spent the whole day scrapping with a friend...good way to spend a day!

Day three spent the day home with a sick little boy...even though he can't help but smile when he sees the camera

Day four: Break is over...back to school!
