What is up with these toy recalls???

I just heard of yet another toy recall! Now "aqua-dots" has been pulled from the market. What??? I was actually going to get this for my oldest daughter. Now I'm leary to buy any toys this season. I just recently mailed back $250 worth of Mattel toys because of the lead scare. SO, what are you buying little ones for Christmas this year? I think we will stick with board games, books, play-doh, and anything else that has proven to be safe for the last 10+ years. It seems like nothing is safe now. My little Hanna has a certain obsession with a little toy called "littlest pet shop."
I just love this toy and will probably be buying a bunch of them for her. I'm not sure who likes them more, her or me!!!

Anyway, I wanted to thank all of you who sent me well wishings from my trip to the ER. I haven't had to go back and have only had minor problems.

I wanted to share a recent layout I did of Taylor, as she is getting older I rarely get the chance to take really good pictures of her. Well I just love this shot.

She is so sweet and innocent in this picture and MAN does this girl ever love watermelon! Lots of color infused in this layout. I have been in a bit of a scrapping rut lately. I seem to be pushing a lot of product around the table but not able to finish anything really concrete. Maybe this weekend I can come up with something!

I'm feeling ispired again....just got an e-mail from Scrapbook Trends requesting 2 of my Dream Street layouts for their latest idea book, "Embellish It." Their idea books are always amazing and I am thrilled to be able to contribute to it! In fact, it seems as though lots of familiar faces will be in that book! Congrats to all my CMK girls!!!

Speaking of this weekend, we have a girls trip planned with some of my family members. We are spending the day Saturday at a new mall in Toledo. Afterwards we are going to have a nice meal together. With Chad being laid off and the everyday business of life I am so thankful to have a get-away. I really need it lol!!!

We spent 2 hours at the dentist this morning. I HATE GOING THERE. And it wasn't even for me but for Tay and Hanna. They are little troopers and always do a great job but entertaining little Chloe is a suicide mission, HAHA. She was a maniac in there! At one point, the theme song from Shrek came on at the office and Chloe pauses long enough to gasp, "MOM, that song from Shrek!" The dental assistants were amazed that a little 2 year old would know that, I just sighed because that means my "little 2 year old" watches WAY. TOO. MUCH. SHREK. It was embarassing.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
