Happy Birthday Sacoya

It's hard to believe she is 12 years old today. What a joy she has been for us. She always does her best and is such a great helper with Ridge. She is super excited because she can officially wear mascara today and I am dying. I don't want her to grow up. Willie took her out and got some cute shoots of her this week, and I thought I would share.

We love this girl!

Cub scout helper

One of the requirements for Canyon to get his "Wolf" for cub scouts is to help me plan, cook, and clean up dinner. We decided to make fajitas.

He was a good little helper.

The look on his face was priceless. He wanted to know what the STENCH was. Which is funny cause he loves refried beans. Guess he didn't know they smelled like that. I'm not sure he will ever eat them again.

The cheese, everybody loves to help with cheese.

He did a great job, even with the clean up.

I think he got a little annoyed with the camera, then he said, you're going to put this on your blog aren't you. And I said, of course.

New pages

I did some scrap booking over the weekend and came up with some fun stuff. Didn't finish everything, but I am happy with what i got done.

This was my favorite page, whenever I incorporate stamps into my layout, it always makes me happy.

Same idea, different page.

Halloween is always the hardest for me to get done, but I am super happy with the way this one turned out.

Kids Hideout

This is the kids new favorite hang out. Willie brought up the ladder to replace the smoke detector battery, and the kids discovered this little spot in Aspen's room!

It's about the size of a twin size bed, so not huge, but fun all the same. We talked about making a permanent ladder and railing, but will see.

Even Ridge loves it----

Unless of course he discovers he got left alone!

Photo booth fun

Happy Monday! i have this program called photo booth on my mac. my brother Doug first introduced the kids to it on his laptop. then they discovered i have it. they love it and are always making videos and taking distorted pictures of themselves. Kinda makes me crazy sometimes, but it's all about the fun right? So today i was looking through some of the pictures and decided to poke some fun of myself to share with you all:

this one is called "color pencil", i like this one cause it hides all my imperfections but doesn't make me look weird.

this is "thermal camera", i guess i'm pretty green!

this is "xray", makes the background look pretty cool. not sure what's up with my nose glowing, i promise i don't have a booger! well at least i don't think so.

this one is "comic book, pretty cool, i like my red lips.

then there's "pop art, whatever that means.

now for the good stuff, this is "twist", the kids go crazy over this one. i'm thinking it's not my best look.

and my all time favorite- "stretch", i bet i could see so much better with those eyes!

like i said, happy Monday!

Heart shaped Junior mints

Have you seen these cute heart shaped junior mints? They have red and white centers. I saw these and couldn't help but buy them. Valentines must be one of my favorite holidays, because they have so many fun chocolate treats, all in fun heart shapes designs. Go buy some and give them to your kids or your sweetie or eat them for yourself, even better!!

Markers, markers, i love markers

Markers have never been my favorite thing, but somehow I continue to buy them. Well today I hate them, and will ban markers forever!! (ok, at least for a couple of weeks) And yes, it's my little Ridge man behind all the ART.

It all started when I was in the shower and he found my primary bag. This is my bathroom tile-

And this is my bathroom wall-

Hallway into my room (do you see a pattern here)

Wood floor in family room-

Back of couch in Family room-

Bottom of the stairs-

Up the stairs a little-

Up the stairs a little more-

Top of stairs-

Ok so there were several more, but seriously, it's pathetic enough I'm actually posting this, seriously Sara, get a life!

Happy birthday Jenny, the big 40!

Happy Birthday to my very dear friend Jenny! And even though I'm poking some fun about her being 40! if you asked a group of 30 people how old they thought she was, no one would even come close. She has been such a great friend to me, I am so thankful for her in my life for the last 16+ years. Love you!

And speaking of age, today when I went to pick up Sacoya from school (she has been going to the charter school now for about a month), one of her classmates said, Sacoya is that your sister!!!! I was like, um Ya I'm still a hottie!!! At least I can dream it right? Gotta love those little 6th graders.
