What a Hoot!

I had such a blast yesterday creating...not quite done with my canvas album. I'll post photos when I am finished. If any of you are considering taking a Donna Downey class...JUST DO IT! Awesome, fun, crazy, messy and wonderful!

Off to Create

I am taking the day off to go create with Donna Downey at Scrapbook Island! Sounds tropically delicious, doesn't it? Look what I'll be making...

Memorial Day 2009

We honor those who died in the military while protecting our country and ensuring our freedom and we thank those military personnel who are now serving in our military...THANK YOU! Memorial day weekend has always been a very busy weekend for our family. Way before kids, Eric and I would make the trek to the Santa Cruz area to go to the Civil War Reenactment at Roaring Camp and the Watsonville Fly-In. It was always a fun weekend. Now, the kids enjoy it just the same, although, they are always on the look out for jumpy houses and food!Last year, Emilie's Brownie Troop joined some local politicians and veterans in honoring those men and women that died while serving in our military. Here are a couple shots from last year.

Something to Think About...

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.

April Recap

April is a crazy busy month for our family: Easter, Emilie's birthday, Paul's birthday and sports! Here are a few shots of our April.
Easter treats for the kid's teachers. Easter Sunday at the SJ Giants ballpark after church. We had a ton of fun. Nicolas is a "huge" Gigante fan (I guess that's redundant) and he flipped out everytime Gigante came close to our seats.Nicolas and Emilie raced Gigante around the bases between innings. What a crack up!You'll have to look closely at this next one. Nicolas is cuddled up next to Gigante wearing his sombrero.We spent Emilie's birthDAY shopping, eating and movie watching. Buca di Beppo's of course. Red Velvet cake is not that great, but the frosting is delicious!

We "cut" school on Paul's birthDAY and spent the day at the SJ Giants game. It was hotter than hot, but a whole lotta fun! Paul got Buster Posey's autograph and was "stoked".Here we are at Buca di Beppo's again. Waiting for Paul to finish a golf match at Seascape. I love that Nicolas loves my craziness!Here is my "Rasta Kid"...only on the left coast!
