Look What I Found

love Made with My Cool Signs.Net
This web site lets you create any words out of these totally cool pictures! Love it! Oh the possibilities! I am going to go on a letter hunt to find my own letters in the world!


January 30, 2010

Spencer is a smart kid but when he hurries though spelling tests he tends to make mistakes. So this week I told him if he got 10 out of 10 on his spelling test I would take him to $1 ice cream at Mocha Express. Well he got 10 out of 10 +1 & I talked him into buying ice cream at Safeway. That way he can have some for the next few days, instead of just once! See, he is smart!

Putnam Youth Basketball had scrimmages at the Rose Garden today & boy was that sweet! Spencer got to play on the court where the Portland Trailblazers play! It was so exciting for him.

My hands get so cold when I run so I jumped at the chance to shop at Nike with my wonderful friend Summer. I found these great running gloves, just what I needed. And, the packaging says "for warmth and speed" so maybe they will make me run faster;)

January 26, 2010

The Valentines Day decorations have spewed all over my house. Joe always tells me that it looks like Cupid puked all over the house (but he tells me a leprechaun puked right before St. Patricks Day)!

January 27, 2010

Oh Boy! This really can't be happening! We got a letter today requesting a forecasting meeting with the counselors at the high school. Nooooo! I am NOT old enough to have a kid in high school! I just got use to the fact that I had a kid in junior high! Oh man, I'm old.

January 28, 2010

More Valentines Day decorations. This adorable tree stays in my house year around & gets decorated for each and every holiday. I love it, it makes me happy!

January 29, 2010

Happy Birthday Papa Ron! The kids and I brought taco lunch up to mom & dad's to celebrate his birthday. The weather held out a bit & the kids got to play outside in the favorite backyard (they love my parent's backyard)! More pictures to come.

Catching Up On Picture Posts

January 20, 2010

Spencer got this Eeyore when he was born & he has been so many places since. Eeyore & Spencer are truly best friends & he is showing his wear.

January 21, 2010

Lexi came home from school feeling not so hot! She's on the mend now but I think the stress of school really gets to her!

January 22, 2010

Here's a peak of the super cute (and super cheap) Valentine's Day gifts I found the other day. Now I just need to sew up some cute little gift bags & I am ready!

January 23, 2010

Spencer had another basketball game today & he scored another basket! Keep it up kiddo, I'm proud of you!

January 24, 2010

I got Joe to go grocery shopping with me today (not sure how, but I did)! We walked in the door and the first thing he saw was the tulips. "You need tulips! What color do you want?" Before I could say which ones I liked, he reached across and grabbed the pink ones! "You like these best, I know!" And he does know. Those were the ones I was going for!

More Fun Pictures

January 18, 2010

I spent some time today finishing a Valentine's Day blanket for us to use. I made the top last year then ran out of time & it sat unfinished in my craft room. So, I got some nice snugly fleece & got it done. Looks great & it's going to be used a ton!

January 19, 2010

Yes, this is Spencer making his own lunch & yes there is a reason why! Friday I took him to school & he told me he forgot his lunch. Being the good Mom I am, I ran home & searched the house for his lunch box. It was no where to be found. So I made another one so my little boy wouldn't starve. Brought the newly made lunch to school & he laughed & told me he was joking, he had his lunch all along. So, Spencer is making his own lunch all this week! Hopefully his lesson has been learned: Don't mess with Mom in the morning!

January 12-17

January 12, 2010

Just a quick picture of my boy & one of his many silly looks!

January 13, 2010

OK, really? How can I be creative in this mess? I've been working on cleaning out my craft room. It's slow & stressful. I just wonder how one girl can have over 20 projects left unfinished?

January 14, 2010

While working in my craft room today I decided to put up the metal board I got at IKEA about 6 months ago. I also played around with the vinyl sheets I got for my Cricut a few weeks ago. Turned out pretty cute but now you know why it is taking me so long to clean out my craft room! I get side tracked so easily!

January 15, 2010

Spencer? Are you in there? I guess I should get use to this! He loves his IPod!

January 16, 2010

Today Spencer & G drove up to Tacoma to see Monster Trucks. They had a blast and took a TON of pictures with my new camera. 416 pictures to be exact, but not a single one of Spencer! 416 pictures of trucks 0 pictures of Spencer:(

January 17, 2010

OK so I posted more than one picture today but I just had to show you both. I made these totally adorable pillowcases for the kids for Valentine's Day. Once I figured the pattern out they were a piece of cake! Figuring the pattern out took FOREVER!! Oh well, they turned out very cute & the kids love them (except Lexi wanted more of the black fabric & Spencer wanted less of the pink fabric)!

Playing with my new camera's continuous shooting mode!

January 9, 2010

Spencer's basketball game. This shot was taken as he was watching to see if his shot made it in the basket & yes it did! He made his first basket in a game today!

January 10, 2010

Lexi spent the night with her friend at a church group retreat & didn't get much sleep I guess!

January 11, 2010

Homework, homework, homework! That's the life of an 8th grader!

More Pictures from 2010

January 7, 2010

So this is where my truck sat ALL day long because I couldn't get the garage door opener to do it's job!
January 6, 2010

I have a new car book. What's a car book you ask? It's a book I only read when I am waiting for one kiddo or the other while sitting in my car. It's important for a car book to be an easy read because some times I only get a few minutes to read & it would be horrible for a car book to take a while to get into!

January 5, 2010

Here's one of the three Christmas decorations I have left, but not on purpose. I always find a few stragglers after putting "everything" away in storage!

January 4, 2010

The tree is going away tomorrow & it will be missed! Christmas is over for another year **sigh**

365 for 2010

Ok, so I hinted at a special idea I have for 2010 so here it is! I am going to take a picture a day for 2010 to document my life this year. I may not post a picture every day but I will take a picture every day.

January 1, 10

This picture is a reminder to myself to relax & enjoy myself! The beautiful tulips were given to me by my wonderful G on our 14th anniversary!
January 2, 10

This is a picture of my day on the computer, getting organized & having fun with my digital scrapbooking! And of course I included my coffee cup because that's my fuel to keep going!
January 3, 10

This is Lexi in a before picture (after picture to come soon). She is cleaning out & getting ready for a little room revamp!

One Word

I'm not really good at New Year's Resolutions. This year I have decided to focus on one word rather than making resolutions. So here's my little word for 2010: ENJOY

More to come soon on my "enjoy"ment of photos. But here's a hint: 365 pictures in Twenty-ten!

A Super Busy End of the Year!

Wow, time has just flown by & I don't know how! It seems like just yesterday when I was making sure I had spent about the same on each kid for Christmas gifts! And to be honest, they really wouldn't have know anyway they were so exited! You would think the excitement of Christmas morning would decrease as they got older... Heck no! And I still get totally excited right with them!
Here are a few pictures from the last few weeks to share with you! Hope you enjoy!
