Went to the circus last night WOW that was FUN! We didnt have the best seats but it was a great show the kids all loved it!!

This has been a busy week for us, Remi got her tooth pulled I got my hair done and we got some school supplies, I am trying to get the kids out shopping today or tomorrow for backpacks and a couple new things, that was always the best part for me to start school was new stuff. I hope to get a few things created today too.

Well we another great weekend, we went to the mountains for a little trip on Saturday we had a exciting storm while we were there, went for a walk and then to dinner. the girls had a good time. On Sunday we met my mom Luke and the girls and Laura and Jeremy at church, then Miguels for lunch. And a quick trip to Joanns, only bought 1 paper stack Im so proud of myself. I couldnt sleep last night so I cleaned out my scraproom a little bit I am going to list a couple lots on ebay, hopefully make enough to buy a new cartridge for my cricut. Then I made a quick layout of Jack, using the Stand and Salute cartridge. I only have 1 week left of a little freedom then I will have 2 more babies for a week and then the girls all start school. The summer is so bittersweet for me.

A Play in the Park Aladdin

Ok I never knew the Aladdin story, we have the movie and the kids have seen it a million times I have never watched it. They said the play was not like the Disney but kinda close. I thought the play was adorable so I think I will have to watch the movie now. We took our friend Daisy and met Laura, Jeremy, Jack and my mom there. This will be a summer tradition for years to come, we did go last year to see Jungle Book and Rainy has been about 10x..

I seen another blogger do this and thought they looked great so I borrowed her idea. Thanks Christina!

I used storybook for this one.

A couple projects for today.. I only had my nieces today so I was able to scrap a little, we are going to see a play in the park tonight.

We ran to school to get Rainys books today ($357.00 OUCH) and ran into Ms. Mackenzie she said it would be nice to go see Mr. Mackenzie so we went to Kaiser and said "hello" he is close to coming home but still very sick.

Oh I also got some yummy tomatoes from Luke and Jason and I made my first pico and oh it is good!!

Yesterday was a fun day swimming with the cousins, we had the pleasure of Sundae and her gang coming over, my girls havent had that much fun in a long time. They swam until the sun went down, Max and Griffin were so adorable and well mannered kids, and little Livvy and Lennon were just too cute! We enjoyed having them over and hope we can do it again before another 10 years goes by. I am such a dork I forgot to take pics :( but next time I will for sure!

here is a shot of all my girls from the other day :)

a few easy layouts

OK when I get stressed scrap, it really calms my nerves and gives me something to take my mind off things. The end of summer is coming and I have only 2 weeks left until I will have 3 babies under 2 in diapers, yes I know I have done it before and can do it again but it still gives me just a little anxiety knowing my kids will be back in school in just days. I wont be sleeping in or taking naps on the couch. I will have to get up get ready make breakfast get lunches ready, and hurry hurry hurry lol... It really isnt so bad I enjoy staying home I feel needed when I get a call from school saying one of the kids needs me. Or helping at a bake sale going on field trips, or going to breakfast with another mommy.

Here is a few things I did this morning while the kids slept, I need to post a picture of my little scrapping girl she just naps in the seat while I scrap lol..

I used graphically speaking for 2 and lifes a beach for another one. I also used the centerpoint feature I have not tried this before and it was super easy and gave me just the look I wanted. I cut the circles using George, 1 note is NOT to use real dial size and shadow it does not work that way I had to cut the layers twice no biggie lol..

OK we made it to the beach here is a few shots.. Had to stop at KFC it is the only one we know of that has chicken littles... the kids had a blast! it was super crowded but I like people watching..

Sunday at home

Casey had to work today which is a good thing we need any extra $ right now, they kids need back to school things and book money is coming due. Hannah and Hayley got to spend the past couple of nights here, we went to dinner with Granna and then shopping. She spent the night it was a nice time, she had to work saturday morning at 5 am so she left before anyone was awake. I wish more than anything my mom did not have to work so much we all enjoy spending time with her, but she is tired from working so much or working all the time :( .. We are trying to go get to the beach tonight after Casey gets home, the kids are excited. I have a migraine and need to get rid of it before a hour ride in the car. Promise to post pics if we make it down there.. Here is a couple layouts I did today, 1 is is using the new Stand and Salute cart and the other is Stretch your Imagination.

Another weekend down the drain. Casey worked OT on friday night so sat. didn't do much. Took Remi to justice and got a few outfits for back to school, she had 2 gift cards she has been saving since her birthday last September. Remi's face is finally looking better too.. Here is a couple really easy layouts I did yesterday after church using My Communtiy and the new Simply Sweet cartridge. Headed to the pool as soon as I get the kids sunscreened and house picked up.

Dr. Visit

Remi has LYMPHADENITIS, ACUTE fancy word for an infection in her lymph node. She looks so sad with the side of her face all swollen. It hasn't slowed her down we mananged to have a pool party yesterday with some friends and I got a little sunburned. I am so tired from being at Kaiser till 10 the past 2 night. We are headed to do some errands today and I hope to be able to make some cards later this afternoon. Lately I just do not have enough time..

Monday July 6th

Just 36 days until the kids are back in school. I am really sad to see the summer flying by. They are excited to start a new year. But for me it makes me feel old. I love having them home and spending time with them. Today I have my nieces, my little sister and 2 little girls I babysit. The baby is napping while Rainy has the little girls swimming. We have dance class at 3:30 and a volleyball meeting at 6. I need to figure out something for dinner too. Just your normal daily things here on the homefront. I am going to share a few pictures. From last week.. We had a couple pool parties with my mom and sister. and I was working on some skirts, these are so fun and easy to make. I need to find some more fabric and make a few more all the girls want one now that they seen Reagan's. What cute pictures it would be all of them twirling around in them :) that is the things that make me happy and proud...Photobucket Photobucket
