It's been a while since my last post. Just making and selling Christmas cards online right now.
 Just got my tree up yesterday which turned out pretty awesome! The kids put all of the ornaments on for me. I just had to put the lights on. It was pretty darn great! Here is Samantha putting the finishing touches on the tree. Unfortuately, our star broke in the box so we'll have to get a new one. lol
I had my 20th year high school reunion in July which was pretty fantastic!

 Me and my great friend Guy from high school

Goofing off at the reunion
In October, my step-sister, Rebecca married Dylan after dating for 5 years. It was a beautiful wedding and my dad walked her down the aisle.
I hope to post some crafts I've been doing lately soon.
And work is hectic right now. Working until midnight most nights makes me sleep during the day while the kids are in school. But oh well, I'm a night owl anyway. TTFN

Summer cleaning...begins?

I think the saying is Spring cleaning, but when you have kiddos in the house, it takes place at all times of the year. My craft room, for example is the epitomy of disaster. When in use, nothing ever gets put away properly. That is my fault, but I have 3 distractions running around. So it's that time of year again to put it back together again. My motivation? Having to take a picture of this horrible mess and post it for my friends to see. lol Here's about a year and a half ago what I would like for it to look like:

So this IS what it looks like now:

June 29, 2012 Beautiful day!

Today was an awesome day! Started off with Samantha's last day of swimming lessons.

Gorgeous day, I might add. Then we came back home and bummed around for a couple hours. Then I went and picked up Nina and we went to the Uptown Shopping Center to do a bit of "Antiquing" as we call it. (It's not really that we are looking for antiques, it's just that we like older things and repurpose them.)
Oh! Best part...I went to DQ and we all had ice-cream!

Wilderness in Wahkiakus

Great times make for great memories...
I took the kiddos to Wahkiakus, Washington this weekend. We had a great time!! Peaceful and relaxing except for the occasional peeving of the kids.

Map for Matty

I made this little map for Matty. He's going to love this. Still in the process of adding dates and details, but it'll always be a work in progress. So fun!!  I took this from inspiration I got from Craft Warehouse yesterday.
My version on Matty's wall.

They had 3 great ideas; on a cork board, one in a frame and another one that had photos:

Bathing in the dark

Wow! It has been a while since I've posted. Bummers for you, but been busy on my side.
So to catch up, Samantha is in 1st grade, Matty in 4th and Nathan in 5th.

I just had surgery on May 10th for bladder prolapse and a hernia so "me ouchy" right now.

I decided to post a couple of fun pictures that were inspired by my friend Nikki of Whimsylove. She is doing a Summer diary of things she does with her girls over the summer days. The last one that inspired me was when she put glow-in-the-dark sticks in a bubble bath and took pictures. So fun! is our version of that activity. Matty & Samantha stayed in the bath for at least 45 minutes connecting and reconnecting all of the sticks. They had so much fun! Sorry, no bubbles this time.
