Me and My Boys!

I had a great day today with my boys. I'm getting more comfortable heading out with them alone. Mitch is becoming such a big boy and listens to me really well. We went to the post office, my local scrapbook store, and the grocery store. They were both champs the entire time. Mitch had a mild break down at the scrapbook store when he realized he could not take home 1 of every sticker in the store.

We came home, got Marshall fed and to bed and then him and I headed outside to water plants. He got a hold of the water hose and had a blast. Thank goodness for digital! I snapped away until I could not take any more pictures. I think they turned out so cute.

Larkin was home over night last night so I worked on some scrapbook pages. This is one that I did of Mitch cleaning the toilet. It was from about a year ago so this shows how far behind I am.

I forgot to add this page on my last post. This was one of my fav pics from last fall so I wanted to make a nice layout for it. I used paper from CM and my cricut to cut out the imags. There are green button brads lining down the picture and burg gingham ribbon accross the bottom photo mat.

late night

Well last night I had a 2 year old that was up until 10pm. He was just laying watching movies but he refused to give in. So I took advantage of the time and worked on another swap. This one is for a summer layout. It was fun to do but I'm not 100% sure I'm loving it. I used my cricut to do the cut outs and then embelished with ribbon, brands, and gem stone accents.

Hubby comes home today around 330pm from a trip. Tonight I'm hoping to work on some Disney tags to give as gifts. We'll see if I get around to it. They can be time consuming but they turn out so cute.
Well I kept receiving the update changes from blogarithm and never found the time to read them. So I discovered today that it changed to Now I have to go in and find all of your blogs and make sure they are added to the new site. So I have not received any of your updates in the past week. If you have time comment on my page so I can get your blog sites.
Have a great day!

Oh me oh my!

Wow it's been a busy, tiring past couple days. Larkin has been home so we have been having our precious family time. I also joined a new site (splitcoaststampers) and it's keeping me crazy, fun, busy. We do scrapbook and card swaps along with chatting away. I'm meeting so really great girls. I'm doing more of the scrapbook swaps since I'm not real into doing cards. I'm going to post a picture at the bottom of two of the swaps I already did. Fun times!

Little Marshall is now 8 1/2 weeks old and so full of life. He started smiling and cooing. I just adore his little self. Mitch is so crazy and funny. He has me laughing all the time. Yesterday for Memorial Day we went to my mom's and he had a great day swimming and playing in the pool with Daddy.

Well my nights have been late the past week so I'm headed to bed. Marshall will be up in about 4 hours for his night time feeding.

This is my 12x12 Fall Time Layout.

and of course I did a Donald Duck Disney layout.

I'll have more to come soon!!

Idol here I come!!

Tonight my wonderful, loving husband called to tell me he bought me a anniversary gift. He is taking me to Philly to see the American Idol tour on August 8th. Yea, I'm so excited!! I'm so excited also to see who wins next week. The two David's were my top 2 picks but now I'm rooting for David Cook. So we'll kick off our 8th wedding anniversary in Philly and then end it with our Disney cruise in September. I'll be looking forward to the fall.

We spent a nice day in at my sister's today. We had about 75-80 degree weather so we thought it would be nice to cook out and let the boys play. After we noticed the grill was out of gas and the boys wanted to play inside our cook out turned into a cook in. It was still nice hanging out. I love my sister's company. Of course our boys love to torture their Noni so Mitch had a full, fun day. Little Marshall usually sleeps through just about everything. Too cute!! He will be 7 weeks old tomorrow, crazy stuff.

Well both boys are in bed and I'm headed there as well. Enjoy your night!

Vacation Dream!!

I'm so excited, about 2 weeks ago Larkin and I started debating about what we wanted to do for our family vacations this year. With the horrible rising cost of gas it's making travel and luxury activities next to impossible. So we decided to combine our vacations this year and do one big one. So we are going to Disney for 4 days and then we are going on a Disney cruise. I'm so excited! Of course we are huge Disney fans or we would not have our Disney Vacation Club. That of course is what is making this all possible. Marshall will be 6 months by then and Mitch will be about 1 month shy of turning 3. It's just going to be us and we are so looking forward to it. So as long as we can get through the summer and make it till September we'll be good to go. I'm sure we'll be calling up friends and family to occupying our summer.
Here is a pic of the boys and I. I finally got my camera up and going.

Picture Issues

Well I'm still having issues with uploading pictures. I guess my usb port on my camera is broke. So I have to order a unit for my laptop that will allow me to download pics by inserting my card from my camera. Oh I just love the world of technology.

So my brother Robbie, his fiance Jess, and their little girl came to visit 2 weekends ago. It was awesome to have them here. I have missed them so much.

Today I went to visit my friend Megan that had a little girl 2 1/2 weeks ago. Little Zoey is so precious. I can not wait to download pics and show them to you guys.

We are supposed to have rain all weekend so I think we might be staying in and hanging out. The boys are sorta pooped cuz we have been runnnig all week. On Sunday my mother in law comes for a few days. We are looking forward to her coming.

Marshall had an appointment yesterday and now weighs 8lbs 2oz. Little guy gained 2 lbs in 5 weeks. I'm loving life right now with my two boys. I wish I could bottle them up at this age forever. Oh well, I'll just enjoy the time while I can and not wish it away.
