Happy Father's Day...
to all the Dads out there!
Today was such a nice day: My Mom and Dad invited all of us kids out to brunch at Strongbow this morning. (Unfortunately, both Jeff and I ended up having to work over last night at work. Jeff wasn't able to make it out there with me, but he did get some much needed sleep before heading into work as early car today.) Anywho... I drove out to meet everyone and we all ate way too much good food and had fun listening to the girls tell us all about swimming and how (baby) David can already talk! Sadie swears he can say "I love you" but I must say that's pretty darn impressive for barely two months old! LOL (He will mimic (coo) what she's saying in her little sing-song lilt, but it's no where close to real words.) Dad and I both had to work afternoons so after spending some time at their house, we both left for work.

New phone yumminess!
I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am. I got my new phone today! I went from the ickiest phone ever to the most hi-tech one I could find. I'm still fumbling my way through it, though. At least now I can send and receive texts, surf the internet, listen to music, watch TV, all sorts of cool things with it. Here's what I got:

Two more jewelry toots!
Bead Trends requested two more bracelets for the November/December issue! Since my mojo has been kinda slow lately with scrapbooking, jewelry making has become the thing that soothes me when I come home from a crazy stressful day at work. Anyhoo... just thought I'd share. :)

The Last Day of School
Today was the last day of school for Sadie and Madison, my sweet little nieces. Since the girls are getting older, they have both opted to have a girl's day where we go shopping, spend the day together, get dinner, that sorta thing. Well, poor Madie had her birthday back in April and since then, we've not been able to do it for various reasons- other family birthdays, vacation plans, etc. So finally, I told Morgan I was going to scoop her up after school and go spend the day with her being silly and just having fun. I had planned on taking her to the beach- something they rarely get to do but wouldn't you know it, I woke up to rain and a forecast of nothing but bleakness for the rest of the day. So, I quickly made up my mind what we would do instead: scrapbook!

So, after the girls got home from school, Morgan and I took them to Strongbow for some lunch and then Madie and I headed to Michigan City to the Osh Kosh B'Gosh outlet (her favorite store). Next, we took a little scenic drive through Michigan and stopped and got some ice cream along the way. I wouldn't tell her what her big surprise was but she was so cute asking a zillion questions about what we could possibly be doing- considering it was pouring buckets outside as we drove. It took nearly an hour to get to my surprise, but the look on her face when we walked into the store was more than enough to make up for it! I took her to Pages in Time (my most favorite scrapbook store in our "area.") Here are a few shots of her making her very first pages:

The bottom picture cracks me up- her front teeth are still missing!

We had so much fun. I've decided that for the summer, every Tuesday (permitting with their busy softball schedules), I'm going to take BOTH girls to PIT for a weekly scrap lesson! Wish me luck! LOL
