I know I know....

okay so I know that i need glasses.... I have needed them for years but you know how it is, i am a procrastinator. I also don't get out much, so last night my girls and me are invited to a purse party, yes I said purse. Actually some of them were kind of cute, they were knock offs of the real thing. It was out in Airdrie, for those of you that don't know where that is it is only about a half hour or a little more. I figured since I was driving I better at least put my contacs in.... do you think I could find them? Not likely(shows how often i wear them) So after looking in the only places i could even think where they might be, Manda tells me that Cody needed a case last time he was here and NO there were no contacs in there.... So he either didn't see them or they flushed them hoping i would never notice... BRATS! Anyway it was fine, Shalaina told me I was driving like a Grandma but other than that it was totally o.k. I didn't hit anything or run the truck up on any curbs so Life was good.... talk to you all later.....

so glad it is Friday, I don't have to do anything today if I don't want to and the best part of all I don't have to wake anyone up in the morning.... Poor Cole I am sure he is so sick of me going in to his room in the morning and pretty much dragging, yes dragging the poor guy out of bed... Every morning I think to myself there has to be an easier way to get this guy out of bed! He can get up at 6:00 am for Hockey but that is totally it! This is the layout for the Calendar club class! If you need to know picture sizes let me know! I did send them out in an e-mail but just in case you didn't get it!
Have a great weekend ladies!
p.s. If you haven't had a chance to check out the new "blogging"ladies blogs, make sure you do they are amazing! Just click on their names and it will bring their blog up!!

Here's a new favorite...

Here is one of my new favorites that I just finished!! Reminds me of how fast life goes and that I am getting older.... not old... just older! The kids made comments this weekend about remembering things that happened when they were "little"! I felt like saying wait a minute you are still little! Not really, Shalaina, the Baby is ten!! Where in the world does it go!
O.K. maybe I am getting OLD!

So Fun...
Happy Monday Everyone!

Cole and Shalaina hd so much fun on this hill by our house. I got to stay home and clean the house! Not much fun on my end but they sure had a great time! When they got home they were cold, wet and whiny!! Is it worth it for an hour of quiet? not sure...

Reminising Again...

So we went today, (even though the weather was nasty!) to give Shalaina some lunch....(I didn't have the heart to give the poor thing the same old lunch) We got there a bit early and she says....awwww mom, I wanted you to watch me be a patrol today.... awwww how cute is this!!! So I told her o.k. we will wait across the street and watch you! It was the cutest thing ever, here she was her legs couldn't stop moving and she was prancing around there like she was the Queen!! Too cute... Reminded me of WAYYYY back when I was a patrol!! I know can you just picture it! I too thought I was the queen bee, quite hilarious... Anyway better get back to work but thought that I better post something today!!!
Talk to you later,

Have you ever seen such a mess? I don't know how I even find anything in this disaster.... So first thing that I have to do is go and clean it up!! At least so that I can work and not get so stressed. Holy!!! Anyways.... things are crazy busy still but everything is coming together! Sorry to those of you in the Calendar club I know that I haven't been very good at sending layouts and I do apologize but there are so many things to get done!! Like for instance a poster is due tomorrow on the Rainforest in Brazil like what in the world do I know about this topic??? Anyway it looks like I will be finding out rather quickly since my darling little Cole hasn't even started it and it is due tomorrow!!( i hope his teacher isn't reading this!!) Life!!! with all these kids, good thing 2 of them are finished school otherwise I would have no time at all to scrapbook!! Well I better run along, back to work and see if I can get something accomplished!!! Oh by the way, those great little organizer bags at Michaels, i finally broke down and got one!!! They are on sale this week so I thought it might be good for classes and stuff, keep everything in one spot maybe!! We'll see but they are really cute!! I figured if you ladies have one then I wanted one too!!lol... Anyway talk to you soon,

I know that it is a long way for you to come to classes but you would love all the ladies that come, bring a friend you may realize that scrappin is your new favorite thing to do...
Anyways to everyone.....
Here is a great soup recipe that I just tried, everyone loved it here, well except for Cole!

Creamy Cheddar Chowder
2 cups boiling water 1 1/2 tsp salt
2 cups diced potatoes 1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup chopped onions 3/4 tsp dill weed
1/2 cup finely chopped brocolli 1/4 tsp nutmeg

(I didn't add brocolli, and it was just fine)
add boiling water to veggies and seasoning. Cover and simmer 10 - 15 minutes. doesn't need to boil
white sauce:
1/4 cup butter 2 cups milk
1/3 cup flour 2 cups shredded cheese

make white sauce with butter, flour,milk then add cheese. stirring constantly until cheese melts, cook it for a bit until it gets thick. Add the chhes sauce to the veggies, cook for about another 10 minutes, serve with cheese biscuits and a salad, makes a great easy meal

Hope everyone enjoys this!
Talk to you next week!

And the winners are......

Congratulations girls! I had to pick two because I couldn't decide on just one...

Here are the entries from the winners:

"to the world you might just be one person but to one person you might be the world"

"I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be, but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see"

I loved all of them, there is even one from anonymous that I love so I guess if I use that one I don't have to give that person a freee class! I will post these all and then send them out! or hand them out in a class...
Lori and Annika you girls can use it towards that class or just towards your next class, Thanks again to everyone it was lots of fun, very inspiring!!


Hey everyone...
just wanted to share my GREAT halloween pictures! I can just see the state of a layout right now!
Oh well you can't always get good pics right??!! Anyway my next post will definately be the winner of the quote contest, I am now down to Three so keep watching!!
The problem is they are all very inspiring!

By the way Cole was a Gangster, even though
I am sure that you all new that, and Shalaina
was a Cowgirl, cute heh!!
Talk to you soon,

I am down to four quotes........

So I definately didn't think this would be this hard..... You guys all came up with some great quotes, and I may need to pick more than one! I am also trying to post some great Halloween pictures(not) actually my little darlings didn't decide until the last minute that they were even going to dress up! Sharla askd yesterday morning what she could dress up as! Uh Hello you have to leave for school right now! Needless to say she didn't dress up and then Cole decided as I was making supper last night that he needed a wig!!!! Of to Wal-mart right after supper with Rob! I don't think he was amused at all. I told him it would have been nice for a bit of a warning, he told me that I should have known he would need a wig!!!Needless to say I have the most pathetic Halloween pictures ever! Anyways back to my perfect world and contemplating these great quotes.... I will publish the winner later on today!
Thanks Girls,
