Growing Up

It is amazing to think that my sweet little girl is getting older. Yesterday she turned 19. Wow where did the time go and how can I get it back. It is crazy to look at her and see her as an adult out in the big world by herself. She really didn't waste anytime spreading her wings and flying.

I love you Miss Ashley but remember, no matter how old you get you will always and forever be my baby girl!!!!

A new direction

It is always tough to say good-bye to friends. But I am not really saying good-bye. After a a wonderful year on the Scrapping Lounge Design Team I have decided to leave. It was a decision I had been going back and forth about for some time and just had a feeling that now felt right to me. I have enjoyed the wonderful friendships I have formed and will always stop in to say "Hi" and to check out all the fun goodies. Tomorrow night I will be teaching my last class at the lounge and it is one of my favorites so I am excited. Remember this is really not good-bye because from time to time you may still see me walking around shopping.
Stay tuned because who knows what will be my next adventure.

Character breakfast at Disneyland

When we first bought our passes this year I told my boys that one morning we will splurge a little and go to the breakfast with Minnie and Friends. Oh how I wish we had done this a long time ago. To think all the years we had stood in line and rushed through pictures because there were 20 other little kids waiting to see them. We had so much fun. The characters interact with the kids and will even drag the parents into the fun. We had Captain Hook try to pop balloons and use the boys head to sign their books. The Fairy Godmother talk to the boys about how brave they are to go on Space Mountain. Chip and Dale messing up hair and making us laugh because they were booing the other.
If you have kids of any age this is something that they will enjoy. And to top it off the breakfast was all you can eat and actually really good. So good that I did smuggle a few muffins out for snacks later that day (But SHHHHH don't tell anyone)
And during this time I learned how to tell Chip and Dale apart. So now I'm gonna really test your Disney knowledge. Which one is Chip and which one is Dale????

The season for....

I gave in and pulled out the sprinkles for a batch of snickerdoodles. My boys love when I make these although I do have a feeling that they are seeing $$$$ signs in their sweet little heads. Yes I found out last year that they have a little business going at school with the goodies I put in their lunches. What can I say they take after daddy

Playing catch up!!!

Just a few of my layouts that I have been working on over the past couple weeks.
I really need to get caught up on my pages and plan on spending some extra time in my scrap room. I mean really my room is my happy spot that is all about me. You would think I would spend every free minute there.

Fall is in the air

It is fall!!! Well about as fall as it will get when you are in So.Cal. The weather last week had us walking around in shorts and flip flops and wishing we had a pool to jump into. The weekend showed some signs of cooling off and today was actually a light sweater day. But to truely get a feeling of fall you need to hope in your car and drive to this little town in the hills called Oak Glen. A little piece of heaven but I guess the secret about it is out because it seemed like everyone and their mother's were there also. But if you pick just the right farm the crowds aren't that bad and then when you look around at all the cuteness you completely forget anyone else is around. This trip we were joined by my friend Tammy and her boys. It is so nice when your friends have kids the same age as yours and they actually get along and aren't just faking it. The goal for this trip was to pick apples but with all the crowds any pick-able apple was gone. So instead we headed to one of the many farm stores and bought them. Either way the apple pie I made the next day turned out so yummy. There really is nothing better then the smell of apple pie baking in the oven.
