feeling under the weather

 I spent two days at home last week with the kids being sick, it seems that the gastric flu went through our home. Now I seem to be suffering from laryngitis, and a major head cold! Grrrrr! I constantly feel like I floating under water! Well at least I will get to get some scrappy time!

Last week turned out to be a beautiful week! They kept calling for rain, but it never came. So the kids got to go out and do some biking and scooting!

Here is Anize! She is so excited this year, She just learned how to use the scooter. Now she wants to scooter everywhere! She even asked me if she could scooter to school! LOL!

I just had to share this photo with you. Let me set up the scenario here! We were getting ready to go for a car ride out to DQ with my cousin and the kids. Well Jared was going to sit in the back seat of her SVU, but we soon realised that his long lanky legs would not fit in the back, so we told him to get out and we would put someone shorter in the back instead. Well as he tried to get out of the back seat, his butt slipped between the back seat and the one in front of him and he got caught!!! I was laughing so hard that my throat was so sore!!!(The whole laryngitis thing!) We did get him out, but it did take some thinking! LOL!

And the last photo I wanted to share today, was this one! It was so nice out that Jeff wanted to get the front lawn raked. I thought it was so cute to see Anize out there helping him out! She did an awesome job too!

Oh! I almost forgot to share this little project with you! When Anize was in SK her teacher took a whole whack of photos and put them all on a CD for the parents at the end of the year. So I printed them all out and made a mini album for Anize. Here are some of the pages.

Wow! It's been a while since I really blogged!

I have been such a bad blogger! I have been busy though. I was asked to make a cake for the French High School's Basket Ball team. They are doing a fund raiser, and thought the cake would be fun to "auction" off to the highest paying class. I will have to post some pictures of the cake later. I am just waiting for the photos.

I have also been busy trying to get some challenges done over at Scrapbook Star. Janet one the DT members, challenged us to use doilies on our layouts, (Or something not scrap related) Here is what I came up with. I chalked one little doily and then cut the ruffles of the large one and used it as my border. I really like how it turned out!

 I have so many cards that need to be made in the next month, that I am almost stressing about it! LOL! Just kidding, I love making cards. I decided to use a sketch from Sketch Saturday ( for this first card.
I have had this little image coloured for a while, and finally got to put her on a card! Yeah!
 The next one was supposed to be for Friday Sketcher ( but once again, I missed the deadline. I do that way too often! LOL! This card is for a co-worker who is leaving us today. She is going to work in a daycare closer to home. I know she will be truly missed.
 I also made her a little going away cake. It's the least I can do!
And for some Blog Candy!! Not from me! Sorry. But if you love magnolia stamps like I do, then you will most definetly want to head over to Paper, Ink, Color! ( and put your name in her draw for these little pretties!!!
But you best hurry, the offer ends April 4th! ;o)

Well that's pretty much all for now. I hope you all have a good day, I will do my best update more often!
