Let them eat cake!!!~

I just love the sayings surrounding cake... my favorite... wait.. I'll leave that for last. haha

Thought Id share a layout of my nieces daughter Jadyn from Thanksgiving. I did this for a pastels Spring is in the Air Challenge that Cristal posted over at 8up. I dont know why, but I always find it so difficult to work with not only pastels, but multiple pictures too. But I didnt think this turned out too bad. This past weekend, Hunter and I baked a cake. Id been craving an Oatmeal cake.. its a heavy cake, one that my Mom used to make... I guess its most like a spice cake. The icing is like that you use on top of a German Chocolate. Hunter is so cute... he always wants to sit on the counter and break eggs or add spices. It helps with his counting. His most important lesson this weekend though was not to add hot liquid {melted butter} on top of the raw eggs. He was like *oh Mommy.. yucky scrambled eggs in our cake.. yuck*!!! Great together time... makes me feel...
*Happier than a fat kid eating cake*.... and there ya have it. Enjoy the week!

He's a rocker!!!~

Now, when Aunt Melly got this guitar for Hunters 2nd birthday we were all like OH NO!!!-More noise??? Seriously though this kid finally a year later totally LOVES his guitar and often will come out of his room strumming the guitar on the couch but usually he wants to ROCK. Like last night when we were watching American Idol. He ran to his room came out with his guitar and was really watching the TV and rocking to The Doors tune Light My Fire! I got the camera quick because I wanted to catch him really into it. About the time I was ready to take the shot he spun around and this is the photo I captured. I just love him... These will be the good memories of a rockin', ever moody 3 year old. hehee :)

Happy Valentines Day!!!

I hope that all of your sweet dreams come true. I thought Id share some of the treat bags that I made up for Hunters sitter/and the kids she watches. I made some for the girls at work too. I got this Daisy D's kit from the Nook and fixed them up with some Kisses and M&M's. I hope they like them. Here I am also showing off the homemade cards that Hunter and & I made his Daddy and the one that his Daddy made for me and Hunter. They turned out real cute. The first is Hunters to his Daddy, it says inside *I love you more than the sky.. I think you are the *cats meow*... hahaa and then Todds card is self explanatory with a twist on going 3-D. I was so proud of him.. he was in my scraproom, I was scared for a bit. LOL We cut it real close because I got LOST in Hobby Lobby tonight, boy they sure are having some sales this week!!! I could have spent hundreds if I'd had it! Have a great week... and a better weekend... Happy Valentines Day from me to you. ;o)

Some cute stuff and a did you know?~

A chick from the 8up forum posted this lil diddy... I couldnt help but identify with 99.9% of the following: ;)

You might be a scrapbooker if ...

10. Your baby's first word is "Cheese".

9. You've ever staged a photograph just so you can use that cute new embellishment you just got.

8. You see your family more through the pictures you scrap than in real life.

7. You've never sewn a piece of clothing in your life, but you buy a mini sewing machine just to sew on your scrapbook pages.

6. You're disappointed when you get gift certificates to your favorite clothing store instead of the scrapbook store.

5. You buy your child a new outfit just to match the new patterned paper you just bought.

4. Your family can't find a place to eat because the table is full of scrapbooking supplies.

3. Your 4-year-old knows the difference between a brad and an eyelet.

2. You evaluate how good a family outing is by the number of scrapbook pages you can create from it.

1. Your husband asks you in the morning "Who is Bazzill? You were talking in your sleep last night ... Is it another man?"

Ok, now to the did you know part... did you know that you could make baked potatoes in the crock pot?? What a genius idea!!!
Go HERE to learn more about how to do it. Also other kinda neat recipes for the crockpot. Let me know if you try anything.. I havent yet, but plan to soon. :)

A quickie~

Just a quick check in. Not really a bunch new stuff going on. Ive managed to do a 2 page layout for a photo swap and a Valentines card for my Mom and her husband that are traveling right now heading for Arizona to settle for the winter. I think, although Im not sure, but thinking that my card helped win me a super prize from the Nook!!! I'll fill you in later on that. It could have been a different one I submitted, but Im seriously not sure, it could have just been luck of the draw you know. haha. Anyway, Im pretty happy about it. I didnt even think there was a prize for it, but Leah says..oh yes, feel like a winner. haha ok, thank you I will. Lets see... all of us have had the FLU... goodeness it was horrible. I know there are tons others out there fighting it... if you are.. get well. My method of success was or at least Im thinking.. was taking Deep Congestion Comtrex with a mix of Sudafed too. I just hope we dont pass it on to one another constantly. That would be NO fun. Sooo Im off to work on 2 projects..an About Me challenge and some altered index for the girls at 8up. Should be quite the project, I need to make 15. I also printed out about 4 nice pics to do layouts with.. cant wait... so be on the lookout!!! ;)
