Eggcellent Day!

So...I was going to have Logan and Emmy over to create some fun little Easter goodie holders from egg cartons. Some to  give to their cousins when they went to VA for Easter. Well, Logan was sick with a tummy issue so Emmy came over. We just made them for her family...mom, dad, and Logan. Needless to say, they all loved them and I think Emmy had fun...I know I did!



Pretzel in mouth...yes I can multi-task





My original plan had been to make these cool looking Magic Balloon Treats...

I'm so glad I attempted the day before....

My trial run turned into an Epic Fail. Maybe it was meant to be because I certainly don't think these would have been as much fun...no paint or googly eyes involved!

As always...

Sweet time with the grands...

Yep, I got to spend an awesome day with Logan and Emmy last week...or was it the week before? Doesn't matter.
Emmy helping me fill the shelves with books. Some old and some pop-up books from Aunt Gert.
Blurry...but Logan playing with the K'nex. I don't think he'll ever tire of those.
My lunch! Emmy was the waitress and Logan the chef. It did cost me $25 for lunch but the waitress convinced the chef to allow me to pay with pretend dollars :)
 
Emmy was so proud of herself for doing this puzzle..and she should be since she did it all by herself.
And this MiMi was proud of herself for playing to different games at the same time. Go me! LOL
Dory is moving out next weekend (the 12th I believe) so I do hope to have Logan and Emmy come over to play and hang out a lot.

As always...

I'm sorry the pictures are blurry and askew. What a Hell of a time I had with these. Taken with my phone they just would not cooperate! EVERY time I tried to add one, it was sideways!!! Grrrr. So, I Googled the problem and this sweet blog post helped...June Wants It All.

So, I now know to first post my pics in Picasa and I am good to go! I do hope to work on February's PL. Get started on it anyway.

As always....

A great weekend!

I actually scrapped this past weekend and finished January Project Life! Whoo Hoo!!

But! I can't get the pictures to load from icloud and not be sideways. So, I will take pics tomorrow with my Nikon and get them on here.

So...until then, I want to share what I did. Jessie had suggested a few weeks ago that we take this painting class Painting With a Twist that she had done a few times with her girlfriends. Well, Jenn, Jessie, Sarah (Steve's gf) and I went and we had a great time. I've always wanted to paint. I LOVED IT! Of course as anal as I am I felt rushed and didn't finish my painting but - not a big deal as I can finish it here at home. It's suppose to be FUN! No pressure, doesn't matter if you know how to paint or not. Just FUN! And fun it was....







And I am going to lose about 50 lbs starting right NOW! 

We are definitely doing this again!!

It snowed Saturday morning and while Paul was outside shoveling, he called me out to look how gorgeous it was! Oh my! It looked like diamonds everywhere with the sun out!

This morning I noticed Kitty laying by the front door, just chillin' waiting for Dory to wake up. Her room is on the right from where he is laying.

I downloaded a really cool little app called "Collect". You take a pic a day and it creates a Polaroid for ya! How cool is that?

So, I'll be back soon with pics from PL. As always....

China? and Let the Sun Shine!

I took Stephen to the airport when he was flying to China on a business trip.

And he brought me a beautiful tea set along with some authentic green tea!

Lovely! 

So, my new office/craft room is soooooo sunny, I have to wear a visor while on the computer!
Let, the sun shine! Let, the sun shine in! The sun....
Poor me LOL!!
As always....
