March 15th: Today I took a class at a local scrapbook store called Capture. It was a card making class using a set of clear stamps that I got with the class. I enjoy making cards, and needed a little inspiration. I had a lot of fun, and made some cute cards in the process.
March 14th: What a great day for a parade!! Jen, Jared, the girls and I went downtown for the St Paddy's Day Parade. It was so nice out, and the girls had a great time. We were able to see the real Cam the Ram and the fake Cam. This picture of the fake Cam is of him giving Addy a high five. What a fun time!
March 13th continued: When we got back to Mom and Dad's house after running errands, Addy didn't want to come inside, so she was throwing a fit in the laundry room and I couldn't resist taking some pictures!!! After she took a nap, she was much happier and she entertained me while eating her snack of vanilla pudding.
March 13th: I watched Addy today since she doesn't start with the new sitter until Monday. While she was taking her morning nap, I heard a really loud pecking noise at the back of Mom and Dad's house. I went out to see what it was, and it was this bird. By the time I got my camera out of it's bag, the bird had already flown into the neighbor's tree. Hopefully it stays away.....I'm sure it can cause some real damage.
March 8th: I watched Zoe this afternoon while Jen, Jared and Addy went to meet a prospective sitter. Zoe hadn't showered yet, so that's what she wanted to do first, and these were taken as we were trying to decide what to wear for the rest of the day. She is always such a character!!

Mar 7th: We went to Bed Bath and Beyond today to look for a few things. When we got there, I remembered another visit where Zoe saw these egg cups for poaching and she said - "Look mommy..chi chi cups!". She thought they were a bra or something....and we about died laughing! I couldn't resist taking a picture of them!
Mar 4th: This picture is from yesterday when Addy was at my house....I bought this catepillar for her for Christmas, but decided not to give it to her since she was getting so much other stuff. I never took it back though, and decided to pull it out today, and she loved it! I wish it wasn't so loud, but she isn't here that much, so I guess I can handle it!
Mar 1st: Zoe loves to sing, and lately she really loves listening to the Hairspray broadway recording. We were in the car today on the way to the store and she had one of Jen's make-up brushes to use as a microphone and was singing her little heart out!! I hope she always keeps singing because she loves it so much!
Feb 25th: I renewed my nursing license in September of 2007 and shortly after that, I couldn't find where I had put the wallet sized license. Well, I found out where I lost it....I got a call from the Treasure Box (local scrapbooking store) who was having a big sale and the clerk said someone found it at the bottom of a box. I must have been looking through my purse in the store and it must have fallen into the box. I can't believe I have it back after missing it for about a year!
Feb 18th: I love my Cricut Expression!!!! I have had it for about a year now, and love all the things I can make with it. My friend Casey and I made bulletin boards at work with die cuts from the cricut and I have also made calendar signs for work as well. I can't wait to see what new cartridges are going to come out!
Feb 16th: I love my DVR and can't imagine life without it! I work in the evening, so I miss all of the primetime shows and am able to record them while I am gone and then watch when I get home from work, or before I go to work the next day. I don't know what I would do without it! I also love the fact that I don't really have to watch commercials anymore...love the fast forward!
Feb 12th: Eye drops....I have had to use these since my original Lasik surgery in March of last year. I can't wait until I don't have to use them anymore! They are all over my house and the cats seem to think they are toys for them....not to mention how expensive they can be.
Feb 10th: Zoe's 4th birthday!! I met Jen and Zoe at the Silver Grill (or Grill Sil as Zoe likes to call it) for breakfast. This is Zoe's favorite place to go for breakfast. I wanted to take a picture of her on her birthday and to get her to smile had her say "Upside Down Show" (one of her favorite new shows).....and this is what I got...I love it!
Feb 8th: We got together for brunch with Aunt Patsy, Uncle Bob, Jen, Jared, Zoe Addy, Mom and Dad to celebrate birthdays. Zoe helped Mom open her gifts before opening her own. I got Zoe a Leapster2 game console...she loved it! Hopefully it will keep her busy on the plane next week on the way to Florida!
Feb 7th: I made this cake for a celebration we had for Mom, Zoe and Uncle Bob's birthdays. Uncle Bob's birthday was at the end of January, Mom's is tomorrow (8th) and Zoe's is Feb 10th. The icing was a little soft, so I couldn't do the roses that I was planning on doing, so I made big flowers instead.
Feb 4th: This is my number from when Jen and I did the Tri for the Cure this past August in Denver. It consisted of a 1/2 mile swim, 11 mile bike and 5K run (we walked!). We did it as buddies and finished together in 2 1/2 hours. I can't believe I finished, and can't wait to do it again this year!!
