Stamp Fun!

Today I treated my friend Lena to a stamping session. It was at Stamp Works, the store where my mom teaches classes.

We did 6 cards. They turned out sooo cute! The theme was friends so all the cards had to do with friends. PERFECT RIGHT?

Anyhow, if you want to do a class you can sign up and take
one, she does all kinds. Also does Copic marker classes and I am sure much more. Her class calendar is HERE. I'm going to put together a class so I can get all my friends/family together and do one. Cause they are that much fun! So beware mom --- and get ready for that one! YEEEAAAAHHHHH!

Goodbye 2008-2009 school year.....

Oh my, the year is over....I am soo sad its gone too fast! Today Chris and I went to the school to watch Alexa get her awards from 1st grade=) She received two for Social Studies, and one for being the only one in class to spot a sad person needing a hug especially her teacher. She is just talented that way. She can feel if I or anyone is sad and tried all she can to hug and make you happy again. LOL or she will cry with you =( Anyhow so she also received a diamond backs ticket for her reading goal and a free mini golf admission to golfland for this summer. I am so proud of her for trying her hardest this year!

Brendon had a busy week and just had a plain old goodbye party but we didn't get to go cause we had to go to work. But we made it to his class to give his teacher roses for being such an awesome teacher to him and also was Alexa's teacher last year. She is so sweet and good with the kids. I couldn't get a picture of him though cause he was being sooo shy and wouldn't get out from behind me LOL I am sure you all have seen that move!Now Nick we got to watch play outside before we had to leave and his teacher was sooo great as well and he was her favorite....Shhhhh cause they aren't supposed to say that HA! HA! HA! They I guess did their awards earlier this week and we weren't told so sadly we missed it.

So summer here we come! We are planning a trip to Texas to see Chris's Aunt and Uncle, Disneyland for our family vacation and Chris's dad may come down here for a visit. Chris would love to go to New York this summer but I would rather go for Christmas or New Years and see all we are missing.

Nick's 10th Birthday

Well today is Nick's Birthday and we gave him the option to do what he wants....He chose to go to Carabbas for dinner and to see a movie "Wolverine". It was fun he wanted to bring his friend Isaiah so we picked him up and he stayed the night. They stayed up all night. I was soo tired I didn't get any pictures I was in BED! LOL! He had fun. We got him a game for his DSI and clothes. He is having a party on the 23. A boot camp party cause he loves camo and army stuff. It will be fun! Look for the pictures after the party!!!!

Family FUN night!!

Well we decided one day to have a family day and go to dinner and a movie. It was fun! We went to Peter Piper Pizza for dinner and ate and played....

Then we went to Wal Mart and got drinks and candy to sneak lol into the theater. The kids thought this was sooo funny!!! Probably not the best thing to teach our kids.....breaking the theater rules but we were teaching them another valuable lesson and that was saving money! WINK WINK! They want like $4 for a box of candy that we paid $1 for at the store. Also we all got a soda or water and only paid $1 and they wanted $3 or more. But we did get some popcorn to make the mood! HA! Well Nick wanted to be a sneak of his own stuff and put his in his waist and I was gonna object and keep it in my purse but it was toooo funny so I let him cause I knew he wouldn't drop it LOL! So many people do it I am sure but whatever call us "bad to the bone!" We saw Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D it was cool and we are gonna see UP next.

April project fun!!!

Well we are making the chicken coop and almost done:) It is turning out good for not knowing what we are doing and nothing to follow. This coop is gonna be from scratch LOL! The chickens are getting huge and have a bunch of white feathers coming in. Sad to say they are getting ugly before they will be beautiful HA HA HA! Or maybe getting uglier Shhh I looked at some online and the ones we got arent the most beautiful but I guess we will just have to go and get some more he he he..... I kinda wanted the brown ones but they werent colored and Chris wanted them to be fun! We will have to get some more once the coop is painted and roof is on. That will be today for sure!

The kids and I started a garden this year. Lets hope the plants grow full and give us alot of fruit and veggies cause the damn prices keep going up! Plus, homade salsa sounds just delicious right now! I put some pictures up. I am getting green onion today and a few other things. I want to find some fruit trees cheep and big but the stores and nurserys want my first born! LOL!

From left: cucumber, yellow squash, corn, green squash, watermelon, cantalope, big tomatoes, roma tomatoes and in the little container I have some more roma tomatoes and bell peppers.
