I just got back from a night at the movies with my 9 year-old, Rea.
We watched this fabulous movie, and then we stopped by the 7-Eleven for hot chocolate :)

Rea really enjoyed this. I was afraid she may have been scared, 'cause some of the scenes were pretty scary, but she handled it quite well. I think it helped that she had read the books, and she agreed that it's def. a good idea to read the book before watching a movie.

I missed the Oscars though, but that was okay. I'll catch up on the web later this evening. I hope that Juno gets something.
I loved that movie, and looks like that's the only Oscar contender I've seen so far.

Thank goodness for good girlfriends, or I wouldn't have watched that either!

Off to bed now..It's been a tiring weekend.

Feb. 19 2008

Okay,that was yesterday's date, but I was caught up with a house-full of sick kiddies and was unable to update.

But, it was a big day for us.

Yesterday, the building of our new home officially started.
The builders started digging.

Osh took that pic on Sunday after the snow had been removed off the lot.
I was supposed to have gone to take a pic of the builders at work yesterday.
Maybe today.
So much Fun!

That's a sketch of the front of what it should look like.

So, so cute!!!

I've been really enjoying my scrappy stuff lately. Not that I havn't in the past, it's just felt more meaningful lately.I've really been telling the story on each page. I journal in a way that my children will know exactly what was happening at the time the pic was taken. So while it may look like a bunch of pages with these cute little faces just peering out at you, if you read the journaling you'll see that each page has a tale to tell...

Like this one here:

I took this pic on the day Rea picked up her first pair of eye-glasses. The journaling is about our feelings and hers over this new time in her life...
I try to always include the date, if not a specific date, then the month and year...

Arn't those papers and rub-ons gorgeous!?
They're Upsy Daisy Design's London Blush line ...Yummy!

Now as always. I have to run.It's the start of a glorious Sunday morning here...

I received a sweet surprise in the mail today :)

Wilna sent me a sweet little kit, she made up, using a Starbucks cup!
It was such a sweet gesture,and I'm so touched...dankie liefie!

If you havn't heard, she's also doing an online Valentine class. I registered and it has been fabulous. Before the class even "officially" started, I felt I'd gotten my money's worth...
It's still not too late to get in and at least download the four projects which you can do at your own pace...

That's it for me today..I must run...someone very little needs me :)

Raring to go...and take on the world!
Grabbed my new iPod and jumped on the treadmill.

The Pussycat Dolls' music is ideal to work out to...
Fast,rhythmic and pulsating, it's exactly what an out-of-shape me needs!
As the music thrummed through my head,I actually had visions of myself as a Pussycat Doll..Imagine that!

Then my session ended and I hopped into the shower...
but not before I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror...

Not quite a Pussycat Doll!

This is my DT tag I made for Piggy Tales to display at their booth at CHA this week.

If anyone's going, stop by there and say "Hi" to the girls.I would have loved to have gone, but Eilam is too little,as are the others...perhaps next round.

Trying to scrap today.
It's been about 2 weeks since I did anything.

I'm going to set a new scrappy goal..kinda!
Every month I'm going to:

* create something/LO using only older stash
* create something/LO using only new stash

This will be in addition to my regular DT stuff..
Wish me luck! :)

Happiness is...

finding a favourite cheese in the local grocery store...

Lemnos cheeses are just too scrummy yummy...
and my butt and thighs will vouch for that!

They come is flavours like "Melon and Mango"; "Fruit and Nut"; "Garlic and Chives" and so on...
How excited was I to find them right here at a local store...

Best extend the warranty on the treadmill!

"Avoiding the phrase “I don’t have time...”, will soon help you to realize that you do have the time needed for just about anything you choose to accomplish in life."

-Bo Bennett, "Year to Success"

Oh, and I want to see this movie, but I'll be going alone since we don't use babysitters,and only go together, without the kiddies when my mum, or his is here to watch them...*sigh*...but more popcorn for me, right?

Keep your song requests coming. We're finding quite a few gems in there, and Eilam totally goes for that Dixie Chicks song (who'da thunk it!)

Had a white space moment yesterday and chopped off my locks...
pretty short actually
It looked good last night...
but today...
not so much!

I may have to brave the elements and go to a hair salon this week and get it done right..

Don't forget to tell me what "your song" is and I'll play it here...
P.S Jayme, I can't locate "your song" on the site I use :(
