Pictures & May News

A few more pictures of my crazy busy life! And for the record, there are no pictured posted from April 23 but I took a bunch I was just using my friend's camera @ Bunco night with my girlies!

April 24, 2010

Some fun elements of a page you will see sometime in May!

April 25, 2010

Yes, I finally saw Avatar & loved it! It would have been so amazing in the theaters but it was still really great!I'm still amazed that I stayed awake (it did help that Spencer & I started it at 11 am;)

April 26, 2010

We have all turned into huge Blazer fans this year. Spencer started watching because he played basketball this year. G has always liked watching. Now that I know who the players are, I even got into it. And Lexi watches on occasion because she thinks Rudy is cute (She's gonna kill me for writing that:)

April 27, 2010

Lexi's band played today in the Canby Band Festival & they did awesome! They received the highest scores the school has ever received. It was fun to get to watch them & see their improvement!

April 28, 2010

We thought a thunderstorm might ruin this lacrosse game but the weather actually held out.Uncle Brandon, Aunt Jenine & little Cousin Erik got to come watch since we played just down the street from their house! Our boys lost but played with big hearts!

April 28#2, 2010

When a 13 year old girl is being 13, this is the look you get (just in case you have never seen it)!

No on to May News! Last year I started A Page A Day In The Month Of May & I'm doin it again! I will share with you at least one scrapbook page every day in May. The difference is this year I'm doing all the pages using my stash (stuff I already have). Last year I bought everything for the pages right before May. But last year I had a paying job. This year I am working with what I have (and I really have a lot). Actually my goal is to complete 100 pages using just my stash but that's a story for another day! So start looking on May 1st for the 2010 Page A Day In The Month Of May! And by the way May 1st is National Scrapbooking Day so you know where I'll be;)

April 12, 2010

I told you before that I have been hooked on these sweet little fabric flower creations & I still am. These are for a bag I am making for my Mom.

April 13, 2010

After less than 2 years with a speech therapist @ school Spencer has graduated from speech (that simply means he no longer qualifies for speech services). He was diagnosed with a Lateral Lisp part way through first grade & has worked hard @ school and @ home to learn how to speak correctly. The only sad part is that I think his speech teacher @ school is a great person & I will miss her influence on Spencer.

April 14, 2010

So this is the real reason why I have not posted in over a week. Our modem went out & we decided to switch Internet providers. In the process we were off line for 8 days ( not a happy 8 days for me).

April 15, 2010

Spencer's lacrosse team won their second game in front of Nonie, Papa, Uncle Brad & Logan. Spencer got one goal & showed his dedication & determination throughout the entire game. I just can't believe how tough he can be. He still surprises me daily.

April 16, 2010

A weed, I know! But it's pretty:)

April 17, 2010

Civil War Lacrosse game, GOOOOOOO Ducks! What an awesome game & so cool to watch a different level of play. And yes, the Ducks did win so that made it even better. We did have some rain in the second half which Lexi & I didn't like but overall it was incredible!

April 18, 2010

The North Clackamas Aquatic Park is less than 5 miles from our house, we could practically walk there & yet we had never been. But that all changed today! Spencer & Lexi were invited to attend Logan's birthday party:) This is a picture of Lexi after she went down the slide (can you see her? she's that little dot way back in the picture). Thanks Uncle Brad for "pushing" her to go down the slide (actually it was more encouraging). I told you once she goes down & realized she can do it, we won't be able to get her off! I actually took this with my phone so the picture isn't that great.

April 18#2, 2010

Spencer had fun 2! He had no fear of the slides (of course, he's never shown fear of anything)!

April 19, 2010

Darn multiplication times tests!

April 20, 2010

Lexi had her Krazy Koncert tonight for band & borrowed our neighbor's adorable bear hat. She played great & looked very Kute for her Krazy Koncert!

April 21, 2010

OHHHHHH, doin the happy dance! Computer is back online just in time for my favorite web show. Although it took the Internet guy over 2 hours to set it up. But, hey, now I know his life story (he was a talker, not a worker)!

April 21#2, 2010

Strawberries and slowly making their appearance in the grocery stores now. They are all from California right now but Lexi is loving them!

April 22, 2010

I finally got a new phone! I have had the same phone for about 2 1/2 years & it was just flat out tired! But Lexi wore her phone out texting awhile back so I gave her my upgrade. So the deal was, she had to give me her upgrade & it finally came available! Yeah, now I have to go figure it out because it has so much more than my last one!

Catch Up On April Pictures

This is going to be a long post, sorry. We have been busy & on top of that G has been sick which throws us into crazy mode. He is starting to feel better, I think but last night neither of us slept very well. He took Nyquil which knocks me out but apparently keeps him up. So he tossed & turned which kept me up as well (weird cuz I usually sleep through everything). Anyway, it's Monday & I think we are back to our normal routine, which is great for me!

April 1, 2010

Spencer having a ball figuring out he can make an Easter egg spin on the table. It's so funny how the simple things can make him smile & keep him busy for hours!

April 2, 2010

Some of you already know he has been bandanna boy lately (wanting to be like Apalo Ohno) but this is a bit much!

April 3, 2010

We spent the weekend at the beach & because of that, I didn't decorate much at home. But I did finish this adorable egg garland to hang up at the beach house to sort of festive up the place.

April 4, 2010

Lexi up a tree at the beach house. The kiddos are both very into climbing trees. This is a favorite to climb & luckily we had a break in the weather so they could be outside while I cleaned the cabin.

April 5, 2010

One of my many visitors to the backyard. Ok so maybe I kinda like Spring!

April 6, 2010

My Easter tulips with the overflowing gutter in the background. This is the part of Spring that I don't like so much. We have had so much rain lately it's not even funny. I am very ready for Summer weather to make its appearance.

April 7, 2010

Have you noticed that I am addicted to cute little banners? I think they brighten up the darkest Oregon Spring days. I make this one for my craft room.

April 8, 2010

You probably already saw the post about Spencer's first Lacrosse game. Yep, they won 9-6 and Spencer scored two goals & has a new nickname: Ninja! He was awesome!

April 9, 2010

The robins have been visiting the backyard. G thinks I'm crazy because I go outside & talk to them. I guess it works because they come back every year to visit!

April 10, 2010

Yep, it's another banner in my house. This one is made out of flowers I created out of fabric. Very cute, I think.

April 11, 2010

When the weather gets nicer I like to wear fun stuff in my hair (or maybe I'm trying to distract from the fact that I'm in need of a haircut). So I have been busy as a bee making fun things for my hair, aren't they cute? I'm sad that Lexi is getting bigger & isn't willing to add these cute things to her outfits anymore. Oh well, I still wear them. I have been looking for plain little tanktops to add some fun flowers to for this Summer. I have seen shirts with cute flowers on them in stores & man they are spendy. So of course I thought, "I can do that!" I'll show some pictures when I find some tanks to embellish. Have a great week. I'm off to do the normal Monday stuff (laundry).

1st Clackamas Lacrosse Game

It was a cold (ok freezing) evening but Spencer's Clackamas Boys came out with a win last night against Hood River 9-6! And Spencer was one tough cookie. He might be the smallest on the field but he showed no sign of hesitation going for the ball & finished the game scoring two points! One of his teammates nicknamed him Ninja & he was all smiles! What a great way to begin the season! Now bring on the warmer weather & maybe Lexi will come out of the truck & watch the next one.

My little #13.

March 31, 2010

No, it's not snow it's the cotton pickin cherry blossoms falling from the cotton pickin neighbor's yard. Poor Spencer just swept the deck two days ago!

March 30, 2010

Crazy kiddos having fun together!

March 29, 2010

When it rains in Oregon sometimes it pours.

March 28, 2010

Do you think it was time for Spencer to get a haircut?

March 27, 2010

Totally plugged in. Playing his DS while listening to his IPod. Multi-tasker in training, he's gonna be really good (shucks he already is)!

March 26, 2010

Does one little boy really need to have this many games for his DS? He seems to think so.

March 25, 2010

Spring is finally here so I made this banner to celebrate. Now if the weather would just get a bit better, I would be happy, happy!

March 24, 2010

One of the MANY collections that find their way to our house.

Happy April!!!

I have been working on my creative mind lately. During this process I have been searching the web for great, fun ideas I can craft, different ways to look at the world & working on a "Can Do" attitude.
So I am here to declare April as my "Look @ My World Creatively" month. And here's is my assignment for the week: Take my camera EVERYWHERE & use it often! Wanna join me on this adventure? I am challenging you to look through your camera and capture the world around you! I would love to see what you find. Post a comment and add a link to the place I can see your visions!
