Happy Birthday to me

Today is my birthday. Its just like any other day...I think that happens when we get older, doesnt it? LOL. Im not complaining. My family was good to me this morning and sang happy birthday to me and gave me some balloons and a card. Jeff has been asking what I wanted for my birthday for a few weeks now and I really have no clue. Im content I guess. Im subbing for my birthday and then my youngest son has pinewood derby tonight so that is how Im spending my birthday. Jeff and I will go out on Saturday.

In scrappy news, both Simply Obsessed and One Single Seed are hosting a crop for National Scrapbook Day on Saturday. Be sure to check them out. There will be some fun challenges and prizes!!

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Tyler

Today is Tyler's 10th birthday. Its hard to believe that my youngest is that old. A month or so ago I asked him if he would just stay little and he told me not unless his brothers did too. He has always tried to keep up with his brothers and it seems as though it made him grow up faster. He is such a joy to have around. He is so funny when he teases his dad and gives him crap. Hes got a great sense of humor. He is very loving to me too. I hope he will still like me when he gets into his teen years.
Happy Birthday Tyler! We love you!

Easter Treats

When I went to the expo, Windows of Time had some cute ideas made up using their paper piecing patterns...this was one of them. I thought these would be cute to give my primary kids for Easter. I already owned the pattern (its from the Think Spring pattern), so I bought the bags from her and came home to make them. Arent they cute? Im sure the kids will just be happy its a treat and rip them open...but I had fun making them. I also got to use up some of my scraps to make these too. (Sorry this isnt the greatest picture, theres no sunshine today.)
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have are having a wonderful day!

April Fools continued...

So, they struck again...for those of you who got it, it wasnt my fault. I was originally blamed for doing Kincaids (see this post on Alisons blog).
Here is the comment left in my last post:

Do you know how hard it is to repaper your house while you are still up and your hubby is banging around in the kitchen?????? And for a few of you who thought it was soooooooo funny, well we thouhgt you might want to share in the joy. LOL. BTW we got your neighbor for you too. Your WELCOME. ;-) Sorry about Jeff's truck throwing up. Hope he wasn't too mad.~The Paper Bandits~

They came back to my house and put shredded newspaper on the lawn and in the trees...and in Jeffs truck. I wasnt awake this morning when it was discovered, so I have no pictures to share. Apparently we fell right into their trap. They were hoping we would take all the papers back so they could shred them...we will have to be more careful and plan better next time. So we are forming a committee to get Eakles back!! Anyone want to join? LOL

April Fools Day

Happy April Fools Day everyone. Is this a holiday that you "celebrate"? My twins are wanting to switch classes to see if their teachers notice LOL...I hope the teachers are good natured about it.
Every year there is a family that gets us...this year was no exception. This is what our door (that we always use) looked like this morning.

Heres what it looked like from the inside.

They deliver newspapers and told us they need the rubber bands back LOL...They may get more than the rubber bands back. Anyone have any great ideas?
Hope youre having a great day!
