I love this warm weather!

What have you been doing to celebrate this gorgeous weather??!

Here are some pictures from a cook out we had on Friday:

Doesn't Chloe look like my mom's side??

My little monkey...she fell on her head twice :(

Just me and the girls!

Saturday was Tay's first game. She did awesome. I have no pictures though because it was FREEZING!!! So more of those to come in the future.

Chloe's obsessions right now are bubbles and swinging. Oh yes, and the park. I hear about the park, um, everyday.

Here she was having a great time blowing bubbles.

And here not such a good time as several of the very large bubbles got in her eyes.

Taylor is growing up so fast. Doesn't she look like a little lady here? She is all of a sudden worried about her hair, her clothes, etc....does this really happen in
2nd grade?!!

Well, that's about it for now. I've done several layouts but need to snap shots first. Hopefully tomorrow :) :)

That is what has kept me from posting for 2 weeks now.

Softball started for me, lobb ball started for Taylor, school carnivals, family cook outs, landscaping, spring cleaning, yada yada yada....

One thing we did this past week was to take a trip to the Indianapolis Children's Museum. Chad had to take a "forced" vacation (long story) and since we had not money or time to plan anything extravegant we decided a short day trip 3 hours south was a quick answer.

The girls LOVED it. I had so much fun watching them having fun. I have to admit that by the time we hit the 4th floor I was really ready to go lol.

The picture looks crooked, yes, because I was standing on a hill, lol.

The dinosphere is my favorite. Basic Grey Archaic paper and buttons will go beautifully with these phots ;)

I found it only fitting that they had a 'railroad' history section.

The blown glass is amazing.

Hanna and Chloe loved the Curious George area.

This part of the museum touched us the most, especially Taylor. She had so many questions, I need to take her to the library so we can research these 3 amazingly inspriational children.

We also ate lunch at Applebee's. We rarely eat out since it is so expensive. Our bill was $45!!!!! I about died! The kid's meals were $4.99 each. I really need to check the prices next time before we order. What happened to $2.99 kid meals???

On Saturday Taylor attended the Young Author's Conference. We are so proud of her and her and the story she wrote.

And little Chloe is wearing pig tails for the very first time. Love this cute little thing!

Be sure to stop by Create My Keepsake for our NSD crop. There will be lots of cool projects, challenges, inspriation, and prizes.

And Mosh Posh will be celebrating their 3rd anniversary in the month of May. The celebration will be marked with a 'member's only' kit, challenges, and prizes. Lots of fun for sure.

Kristen is also having a DT search. I really encourage you to try. Her kits are gorgeous!

I will be doing my best to keep this updated. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to check back!!

Now I've really got to go, Grey's Anatomy starts again tonight :)

I finally made it out!

Yes, Taylor finally made it over the flu, thank you for all your kind thoughts! The last day she had the flu Hanna came down with the stomach flu. Then Chloe the next day, or should I say night, as she threw up in my bed. Dang. Then 3 days I came down with a cold, which Chloe caught yesterday RIGHT after she got over the stomach flu. NICE.

But I did leave the house today if it was to only go to Walmart, lol. How sad is that?!!

It was my turn to post on the Pink Paislee blog. It entailes scrapbook trends that are in right now. Here is my layout:

I really love it. Not only the pictures of Taylor, but the colors, the fun product, and of course the lovely Pink Paislee goodness.

My sweet friends Beth and Susan Opel just found out the most amazing news, they are moving to Utah!!!! Beth will be working for Creating Keepsakes Magazine as the Senior Writer and Susan will be working for Papercrafts Magazine as the Associate Creative Editor . Congrats my friends!!! I'm so proud of you and God does know his plan for you!!!

Have a great week everyone :)

Spring Break + Flu = Bored & Cranky Kids

Yep, Tay's got the flu. So much for Science Central,
the Field Museum in Chicago, and the other various fun little places we were going to go for Spring Break. Sigh. She can't help it that she's sick. We've been stuck in the house for several days now and I don't know how much more Princess Monoply I can take LOL!
