Crafts + Friends =

... fun times

Scrapbooking is so much fun when you are able to do it together with friends and family. Carly and I have been planning this day for a month now and I was so excited when it finally arrived. I think Carly and I had a very productive day. I finished 5 pages..that is huge for me as I am a very slow scrapper. Carly has been working on a book for her dad for his birthday and she did tons of pages, its a super cute book and I'm sure her dad will love it!

Here we all are hard at work! My mom was working on some things for my dads 65th birthday party bash. Its going to be alot of work, but so worth it in the end. I can't wait until May. :]
Here is 2 of the pages that I completed. I still need to add a few things, but I think it turned out ok.

~taking a break~

Thank you so much Carly for coming down this way and spending the day with us and doing what we both love to do! I love all your creative and fun ideas and I might have to use them someday. :] I hope that someday soon we will be able to do this again..and I will come up your way when that time comes. I had a great time and love catching up with you! Thank you Bethie for the yummy chicken enchiladas and salad you made for us, it was delish! :]

Today is my SIL Staceys birthday. Here are a few reasons why I love her. :)

Who wouln't love a cute face like this?


When there are other people that don't want to take care of the baby, Sid(stacey) automatically becomes the "poop checker."

I know that Sid(stacey) loves Manny(me) because she likes to snuggle with me even though I might snore or make some other noise with my body that I don't have control over.

She walks kind of silly...haha

Crash and Eddie(my mom and Brittany) can be obnoxious at times and they seem to pick on Manny(me) quite often. Sid(stacey)tries to be the peacemaker and makes sure everyone gets along.

Shes the ultimate "fire starter" and can get people to dance with her at the swipe of a single match, as well as make very weird noises when provoked.

And the biggest reason of all that we love Sid(stacey) is because she is the leader of our herd! Even though we don't always seem to follow her rules...HA!

Diego(Bethie) is the tough one of the herd. Diego(bethie) has been known to be mean to Sid(stacey) and occasionally tries to eat her. But Sid(stacey) knows who the "real" leader of the herd is, so she will just ignore Diego.

After writing this post, I realized that we as a family watch way too much Ice Age..haha! I can't remember how this all started with each member of the fam becoming a character in the movie, but seriously it is hilarious to joke about. Stacey can talk exactly like Sid haha..its so funny!! This is all a little side joke with my family, in case you were wondering.

Love ya Stacey! I hope you have a fabulous birthday!! :)

10 game winning streak!!

This would have been the "best" game to have gone to,but I watched it on TV and it was as if I was right there. It was pretty intense. The Jazz played the Denver Nuggets last night and won! I'm so excited right now, because I HATE the Denver Nuggets. This is the Jazz 10th straight win and they are the "toughest" team in the NBA right now. :)
** LIFE OFF - GAME ON!! **
