Tons of New Pictures

Yeah, right! It's almost 1am, and I still haven't gone to bed. I've gotta get up at 7:30 ish to get this gang mobilized and out the door to Jackson to the State Assessment testing, and still figure out how to do school this week. hehehe. Sorry mom. I didn't get home until 10, then had to make my freebie for tomorrow, and, well, time just got away from me :)

I'll try and do better tomorrow. I promise (about the trying, that is)

Here's A Picture for Ya!

OK, here's you picture. Isn't it what you always wanted! Look, though, my eyes are on the road, and not on the camera. See, I'm a safe driver. Yeah, I'm sure there's a good reason behind why I haven't been posting REAL pictures here lately. Let me see....

  1. WordArt
  2. Jimmy's messes
  3. PMS
  4. Tiredness
  5. New TV To Watch
  6. Have to Cook Dinner
  7. Reading kids a book
  8. Homeschooling 3 kids
  9. Having 5 kids
  10. Having Scouts 2 x a week
So, as you can plainly see, I'm way too busy to post. OK, I'm just full of it. I just haven't made time lately. But I promise. I'll post something of substance really soon. Captain America's been promising me a "day off" soon. I wonder when soon will come? Maybe the same day you get new pictures :)

Scrap Orchard Challenge

So, Scrap Orchard is having their grand opening, and lots of fun contests and give aways this week, and for today, they had a mini kit challenge. It's called "You're a Peach", and the rules are to use everything in the kit, and scrap a page about someone you admire or respect. Well, who could I admire more than my sweet husband. He does so much for our family. You rock, sweetheart!!!!! Love you tons :)

Kit by Scrap Orchard (yes, I used everything, but you may have to look closely - especially the you're a peach paper. I just used a tiny piece of it)
WordArt by ME!

I've Been Tagged

I've been tagged by Stephanie - she's a WordArt friend :) So, I'm supposed to copy this part from her blog, then pick my 5 favorite sites, list them here, and then pick 5 more people to tag. Not quite sure if I understand the concept, but I'll play along :) hehehehe. So, here it goes.

PLEASE just follow the rules! Just copy paste THIS and everything below up until my Five links:

I thought it would be cool to have a meme where we post links. We can post up to five. Then we tell five more people to share their links. If we all share who tagged us, our links are sure to be seen!

They can be business links, favorite sites, affiliate links, whatever you want…

There are Five Rules:

1. MUST be clean. No R rated sites.

2. Only FIVE links.

3. MUST tell 5 people.

4. A link back to the person who tagged you

5. Lara’s Place is the meme originator. (an active link is appreciated)

My 5 links are:

OK, it's me again. I decided that I should include a link back to the person who sent it to me. I think that just makes more sense, if we're trying to share sites with each other. So, here it is:

Stephaine (she tagged me)

1. The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints - OK, how could this NOT be #1 :) hehehe. Lots of good stuff here, and if you don't get BYUTV, you can listen to conference this weekend from your computer :)

2. Designing Moments - Had to plug Carla's store, after letting me sell my WordArt there. Thanks again Carla :)

3. Civil War Harty's - Had to put a link to my sweethearts blog. He does such a good job preserving our memories from our FUN Civil War weekends! We really do have a great time on them. Can't wait for the 2008 season to start :)

4. Allrecipe - My favorite place to go to find delicious recipies. Even though I'm dieting, and haven't strayed from my menu AT ALL in 3 weeks. 8 lbs down, a whole bunch to go :) I will be skinner by summer and by the time I go back to Oregon to visit.

5. OHVA - This is our virtual school site. Totally loving the program. My kids are learning so much, and so am I! What a great thing it is to be able to be home with the kids all day long. I'm getting to know them each so much, and love 'em to death!!!!

OK. Now is the time that I pick 5 of my friends, then comment on their blog to let them know that they've been tagged. Then, you guys need to post your favorite 5 sites on your blog.

1. Lyn

2. Madi

3. Melissa

4. Jim and Melissa

5. Nathaniel (hehehe - I don't know if he'll play, we'll see :)

Jimmy Report

OK, so I haven't done one of these recently. Things that Jimmy has messed up:

  • Cooking spray on the TV
  • Ketchup on the living room carpet
  • Lysol all over the living room
  • 2 bottles of perfume around the house
  • 2 bags of honey nut cheerios on the floor
  • sucking up the wipes in the vacuum cleaner
  • dumping whole pack of loose diapers on the floor
  • spilling about a thousand glass decorative things on the floor
  • breaking the TV remote into 11 pieces
  • grabbing handfuls of peanut butter (still haven't found the jar)
  • eating Jacob's chocolate before Jacob even knew he had any
  • dumping all the tempera paints on the table from their bottles
  • turning on the water, and letting it run, and run, and run, in the bathroom
  • turn off the computers from the power strips
  • de-potted my poinsettia (how do those things live so long)
  • twisted the heads off of 4 of my tulips Captain America bought me
  • pulling out all the wipes from the container, ONE BY ONE
So, who wants us to come and visit them first? Anyone? Anyone?

Is This Not The Cutest Picture Ever, Or What ?!!!?

Where is Tom Tom Going?

One of my kids favorite stories to read is "Where is Coco Going?" It's about a little chick who goes all around the world, and we have to guess where she's going, and it's finally to Grandma's House. Well, I don't know if Tom was going to Grandma's house or not, but he's sure going somewhere in a hurry. I think it was away from Jacob and the camera. What do you think?

How Did This Get On My Camera?

Hey, at least they were playing and having fun! I'm so glad that spring is on it's way, if not here :) The kids spent most of their free time today, outside in the yard, playing and having fun. Brings back nice memories of playing outside myself as a kid :)

Easter Egg Hunt 2008

We really did have a lot of fun Easter Egg hunting at the Kitaka's home. Thanks so much, you guys, for inviting us! Here is a picture of each of the kids, with all of their loot!

Lightsaber Duels

So my 10 year old emailed me this link to Youtube, which showed me how to make light sabers glow. Just what I always wanted. Then, he took pictures of himself and his brother dueling, and brought me the camera and stuff to download the pictures. I figured that if he went to this much trouble, the least I could do is make him his photos. Jacob, I hope you like them! ( I couldn't figure out how to make 2 different colors of light sabers, so it's good versus good gone bad) hehehe
