All together now ... "AWWWWW!!"
In other news, I had a birthday (37th if you're counting!) Here are some pictures:
Opening presents - somewhat challenging with LC sitting on my lap.
Marley's "fancy writing".
Apparantly the theme was "make Mommy smell good" - I got a tube of hand cream and 3 different lip gloss tubes.
We ALL had to model the lip gloss!
A few days later my brother and Greg's sister and their families came over to help keep the celebrations going. Greg organized everying; the guest list, the time, the place, the food .... Memphis Blues BBQ FEAST! Not exactly what I was expecting but it was enjoyed by all. And yes, we had no need for meat proteins for a few days after!!
Matthew chowing down on a rib.
Not sure what LC actually ate - maybe just the baked beans and the fries. Oh well.
Paige was very happy to have me load up her plate and did her best. I somehow missed getting a pic of Sophie - that's the top of her head at the bottom of the picture! Sorry Soph!!
Marley LOVES pulled pork!
Jasper gave it all a miss and opted for PB&J instead!
Sadie (LOVE those curls!) drinking her milk.
Griffin with a milk goatee!
This is Auntie Christine's "Meat Feast Face". Personally it looks to me like that's what her arteries are saying!! LOL!
And the instigator of the MEAT - Greg. Thanks for a great birthday hon!!
As for my scrapping life; I have been working on an album about our trip to Hawai this past March but instead of posting each page as I complete it I am going to wait and post the finished album all at once. I'm getting there!! Slowly but surely. I'll also have my September layout for Project 12 soon. I receive emails from Ali Edwards and she just posted about her annual December Daily. I looked at this project last year and thought it looked like a whole load of work that I didn't have time for. And I didn't really. What with the girls' activities, my schooling, Paige's preschool and everyday life, it was hectic. But that was then and this is now ... and now I am seriously considering doing it. The album Ali just posted looks so easy! Hmmmm .... I'll keep you posted and let you follow my prgress should I decide to do it.
