Sammy and his first snowball!
Thursday, March 27, 2008
So here are some random facts about moi:
1. I have freakishly sensitive feet. Seriously, the idea of going in and getting a pedicure or having the hubby rub my feet = torture! And I NEVER go barefoot!
2. I am the werld’s wurst spelur. God bless a spell check! No joke, I’ll use it about 37 times before I finish this post.
3. I can’t stand the smell of garlic! That’s pretty weird for me considering I used to eat the baked pieces of it that would come out of the pork roasts that my Grandma would cook when I was a kid. Ever since my second pregnancy, the smell of garlic has made me wretch! Yuck!
4. I’m a pseudo-twin! My brother was born on my birthday, but is four years younger than I am.
5. I’m still afraid of the dark.
6. I love desserts soooooo much that I've declared that every Tuesday shall be “Cookie Tuesday” where the family bakes (and eats, my favorite part--YUM!!) a batch of cookies. We’ve celebrated this totally awesome holiday every week for over a year now. Sweet!
7. I’m pretty sure I graduated high school ¼ of a credit short of the requirement. Allow me to explain:
During the last half of my junior year, I did homeschool and was also enrolled in an alternative school for one class. I completed all of the work but apparently, the class at the alternative school wasn’t worth the same amount of credits as regular classes. No one bothered to check this, including me, until way after graduation the following year. I was able to go on and attend college where I graduated Cum Laude with a BA in Psychology.
To this day I have a frequently reoccurring dream that I’ve been unknowingly skipping the one class that I need to pass in order to graduate and there isn’t enough time to make up the work! Wow, maybe I should use that fancy psych degree and do a little self-psychoanalysis!

I wanted to share these pictures of Bean from this weekend. She's officially been ruined by Easter candy! She absolutely LOVED this marshmallow lollypop! She was just SO happy and actually mananged to eat a couple good mouthfulls of it before her mean mommy had to take it away. :0)

Our family has this weird tradition of sitting new all the babies inside a basket on their first Easter, complete with grass and all! This is Bean on her first Easter Sunday, last year.
Wishing everyone a very blessed Easter Sunday!

Here's a set of Easter pages that I just finished today. I'm so proud of myself for actually finishing them before Easter gets here! Now maybe I'll go get started on one of the many Valentines Day projects I bought stuff for and just never got around to creating! Yeah right. ;0)

Here's a little "candy" I came up with today. I'm still working on the rest of the page that goes with this little Easter basket (which my son tells me looks more like a hat:0) ) so maybe I'll post pics of the completed pages in a day or two.
I've also been finishing up my thank you cards for Bean's birthday celebration and I just thought they were too cute not to share! Thanks for looking!

"What do you pray about? What is sitting close to you heart? What keeps you up at night? This month, create a layout that highlights something you are praying about or praying for."
This could cover any number of things depending on what's going on in your life right now. I chose to focus on my kiddos :0).
I found the journaling on a greeting card and it seemed just perfect! It reads: "May God bless you with bright stars in the sky when the way seems dark...with smiles to cheer you when the road seems long...with sunshine to warm you when the road seems cold...with love to greet you when each day is done...and with peace that fills heart and reminds you of what a precious gift you are to God. And to me."
Be sure to leave a comment with a link to your blog when you've posted your pages for the challenge! Have fun!

Here's my pic for the week:
This is a favorite picture of Sammy that we've named "Teaching Nemo a Lesson." This was taken at a bbq we went to last year where the host totally spoiled my kiddos with all kind of treats and goodies, including a Finding Nemo pinata. Little Sam could barely lift the stick to take a swing at this thing, but we give him an A+ for effort. Check out the look of determination on his face!

Poor Sammy! He's had to learn a lot of patience becoming a big brother and this afternoon was no exception. He was just trying to have some nice quite time playing with his train set,when little Miss Ella decided she wanted to play too! Thanks for being such a good sport Sammy!
A smile of victory on the face of the mighty Godz-Ella!
Notsomuch with the smiling for Engineer Sam.
***Update: Sam has been sitting here in my lap as I post this and has declared the pics of Ella breaking apart the train track "ha-warious." Crisis averted. ;0)

Be sure to leave a comment with a link to your blog with your picture! Can't wait to see everyone's pictures!
Edit: Ok, here's my pic for the week. This is one of my favorite pics of Nick at about 6mos old. We were out having a play date at a park that had a farm with a petting zoo. He had just barely learned to sit up at this point and I thought it would make such a cute shot to have him sitting all by himself on the bench in front of the barn. Gotta love those big ol' cheeks!

These are the pages that I came up with for the faithbooking class that I taught last month. I've actually had these finished since mid Feb. but had been waiting to post them because they still need pictures. I'm having a really hard time finding any pics of me that I have deemed scrap worthy, so I'll have to work on that too.
The title reads: "I am HIS masterpiece" and the scripture printed on the file folder is Psalm 139 : 13-14 " For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well."
