1 ladies event, 3 birthday parties, 1 shower and bible study today. Oh and still finding time to scrapbook. I'm working on (Shhh) a thank you album. Slowly but surely. You can check it out on flickr - enter alijoy under the search for people!
This was a cool exercise - we were given a bag of m&m's and instructed to take any number from 1-5. After that we were geven a sheet with each colour listed and something to share with the ladies in our group.
Red - share a fond memory Blue - shar a quality you appreciate in a friend Green - share your most wonderful vacation you've had or dream of taking Yellow - If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things/people would you bring and why Brown - tell us a hobby or an interest you have Orange - wild candy - please share anything you like
We've been having a thing for apples lately - they have to be gala. Matt eats them whole, the girls like them cut with the pampered chef slicer. I put a few in a container with the slicer and off we go. Snack when we need it.
Wow - busy day! It's Drew's birthday so we went out for breakfast. Matt had his first performance for King of the Jungle in the afternoon and then we had small group. I think Drew's photos deserve the spotlight today. He received a number of adidas things he had picked out from the website. Unfortunately even the size 15 golf shoes were TOO SMALL!!! He's going to try the size 15 wide to see if they are any better.
PS - We bought two rain barrels today - great price! More on my 101 blog!
Started the May LOAD today! I'm not sure if I will be able to keep up this time but I'm certiainly going to try. It seems like it sort of sprung up on me this time! I'm looking forward to the inspiration again though! This layout is actually my second because the first one I loaded - although it was after midnight here, it showed up as April 30th on flickr. I'm glad I got it still done! This layout was from jessicasprague.com - showing us how to do hybrid scrapbooking.
I have to say that she is one of the cutest kids I know! I've been watching the daughter of a friend for a few days as she gets into a new job - she's 13 months now and practically potty trained. Yep. Can't believe it but she rarely has a wet diaper and TELLS her mom when she has to go (well takes her to the bathroom actually). If I didn't see it I wouldn't believe it. And it's been more than a few months!
I debated between a picture of the first flowers in our garden or the bugs. The bugs won. I can't believe we finally have flowers or "greenery" and the bugs are already eating them! The kids and I did find them interesting to watch though.
Flip flops were not appropriate today! Man it was cold! I tried to wear closed shoes but it just didn't work with my "surgery", so I had flip flops and my winter coat on. I did drive to school today though.
I am a SAHM striving to balance motherhood, child care providing, volunteering, hobbies and more with being the person God intends for me to be. I have a terrible memory and like to scrapbook so for me this blog ia a place to record those details. So know that I may just add in details and adjust them chronologically. That's just me!
