Happy Birthday Zachary!

I'm not quite sure how it happened, okay- I know how it happened, but today I am the grandmother of a 14 yr. old. Happy Birthday to Zach! We will be celebrating with him tomorrow night. Tonight he heads to his mom's. This is a picture of Zach and I from his birthday last year.

I have been scrapping a little lately and I am glad. I love just spending hours in the scraproom playing around with all my scrap goodies. Last weekend there were some challenges posted at Kit 'N Kaboodles ( by the DT (design team) gals. I was able to complete all of them. I made some cards and 2 hanging wall plaques. I am giving the heart shaped plaque to Steve for our anniversary which is tomorrow. I gave Morgan the one with her name on it and she took it right up to her room and hung it on the doorknob.

Tonight is my monthly scrap get-together so a few gals are coming over for some scrapbooking fun.

A fun weekend with the girls

Don't yell at me (Jen), I know it's been over a week since I posted something. LOL. Last weekend I spent time at the beach with my mom, my sisters, a cousin and a family friend. For 12 years we would get together one weekend a year and take a trip to the beach. For whatever reason we got away from going, so I suggested we have a girls weekend reunion. We always have a good time shopping, laughing and eating. The weather was absolutely gorgeous on the 2nd and 3rd day but as you can see by the photo there was snow on the dunes on Friday. The other picture is me and my sisters (l-r) Patti, Jen and me. We're talking about starting the weekend up again so we'll see.

I think I could be a weather person and predict as well as the ones I watch. When the storm was brewing they told us 2-4" of snow. Then things slowed down and they said 1-3". Well, we woke up yesterday to almost 10" of snow! Of course this brought a smile to Steve's face because he would FINALLY get to use that snow blower he bought over 3 years ago. The kids got to stay home of course, so I walked across the street and snapped a few pictures of them playing in the snow.

The creative juices were flowing here over the weekend and I finally scrapped a layout that I have had in my head for a while. Morgan was a flower girl in a wedding back in August and she looked beautiful and I couldn't resist using this title on a layout.

Today I am off to get a manicure and our tax appointment is tonight. Other than that just getting things together for my girls' weekend at the beach.

February already??

Hard to believe it is February but it is starting off nice. The weather here today is a balmy 53 degrees. There is a chance of a snowstorm on Tuesday so we'll see. Steve would love to use the snow blower he invested in over 3 years ago. LOL!!

We are taking the long trek across the street later to watch the Super Bowl at Michael and Corey's. Michael is doing pretty good since his surgery. He either has a good tolerance for pain or is putting on a good show. He heads back to the doctor tomorrow so he can take a look at the finger.

Signing off for now. I'll be back tomorrow with a layout I finished.
