Wishing You Well Card

I did this card for With Love and Affection's card challenge. I found her blog through twitter.

My paper is coming out uneven. Apparently I have been using my paper slicer wrong. I was putting to much pressure on it and I was also using a back and forth motion. I guess everytime you use it, you are supposed to go in the same direction everytime. So, my slicer is warp and my stuff comes out crooked:(

Music Monday: Woman's Work

I saw Music Monday over at Super Mommy To the Rescue and I wanted to participate. It is "Woman's Work" by Kate Bush. It was used in the soundtrack for "She's Having A Baby". I know the song is about a woman going into labor, but I always think about my Dad when I hear the song. I also like the movie too:)

Up North Pics I

I got back from Up North Tuesday afternoon. The trip at times felt chaotic. Right now I am still dealing with a headache:)

On the way up there we found out that Parker is car sick. Yup...we had to stop twice to clean a mess:p

It rained the first day we were there. So we just stayed in most of the day. Which was actually okay to me. It gave us a chance to relax.

Here are some pictures that I took. I took a lot but I thought I would spread it out through out the week.

As I said before it rained the first day. In the evening time after it stopped we walk around and I saw this leaf. I thought it looked pretty so I took a picture.
The second day was nicer. Here is Adela playing in the sand.

While Sydney mainly just sat around, Parker was all over the place. At times we had to chain him up. Parker cried every night when we went to sleep. I guess he wasn't used to the place. One day we had to go to the store and he pooped in his cage!! He made such a mess! I told Jason he did it on purpose because he was pissed we left. Jason said he is not that smart. I am telling ya...the dog is evil:)

Here is Michaela playing in the sand.

Here is Adela telling me to stop taking pictures. I guess she got tired saying "cheese".
I am gonna try and get in some computer fun and catch up with you all.

Sydney's Buzz Cut and See Ya!

I haven't been blogging much this week. We are leaving tonight to go to Jason's family cottage. I have been cleaning and packing all this week. I still have stuff I need to pack and I want to give the girls a bath before we go.

I am worried though...I hear it is going to be a bit chilly by the lake in upper Michigan. I hope the sun is out at least.

But before I go I wanted to show you a before and after of Sydney. Last week she got a buzz. I think she feels so much better. Heck, I usually do when I chop alot of my head:)

Before her buzz cut.
After the buzz.

When I took the pictures they didn't seem so dark.

Next week I will show you some damage that Parker did. You know...the other dog:p Yeah, he is going with us.

You all have a good weekend. I hope the weather is nice for you.

The First SBS Sketch Challenge

I made this card for our first sketch challenge with The Sisterhood Of the Blogging Stampers #26.
This past Saturday we went to a birthday party 3 hours away! It was 8 o'clock when they decided to open the birthday presents, but we had to go. Our ride turn in to a 5 hour ride home because the highway close to our home closed and they had to direct traffic of the closest ramp. There was a bad accident that they were still investigating. We were stuck there for about an hour and a half. Poor Adela had peed so much in her diaper she was uncomfortable and cried alot near the end. I was so tempted to take her out of her seat and change her diaper in the slow moving car. But I didn't, just to dangerous. You never know what could happen. So she cried herself to sleep. I felt so bad.

We should have gotten home about 11:30. We didn't get home until 1:00 am! Unfortunately a lady had died from that accident. I felt bad for being frustrated.

On an upnote, Lindsey and Michaela came home tonight after spending about three weeks with their Grandparents up at their cottage. It is louder in the house, but it is good to have them home. I think Michaela actually grew physically and mentally! She just seemed older. I was a tad sad. She was gone for just three weeks!! She seems like she is a year older!! Stop Growing!!

Ann's Question:What makes you comment on a blog? If I am reading the post I try to leave a comment. It is only polite. Though, if the post is controversial to me and upsets me, I wont comment. It is not my place to be mean on someone's blog.

Scrapbook Sunday: Lindsey At Grandma's

It is time for Scrapbook Sunday which is brought to you by Holly of Girls At Heart and Noelle of Lil' Bits and Pieces Of Me.

It is a layout of Lindsey when she was about 11 months old. She was staying at her Grandma's house. I also had clipped a little piece from a baby magazine that I thought was cute. I now it is not acid safe, so I am putting my page at risk. I had glued it to another piece of cardstock to act as a buffer.

To see some more Sunday Scrapbook layouts please go visit Noelle at Lil' Bits and Pieces Of Me!!

Happy 4th Of July! and Shans Weekend Wordle

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Fourth Of July!!

We are going to be chilling at home. Grilling some burgers and watching the neighbors fireworks. Well, we are hoping we can watch. Someone last year complained and they got into trouble. Fireworks are illegal in Michigan, but that never stops people. Our sity says they are cracking down on illegal fireworks. I guess we will see.

It is also that time for Shan's Weekend Wordles! For more Wordles, please check out Shan's blog!

Before Lindsey and Michaela left to go up north, the girls played Dogs. Michaela was the human and Lindsey and Adela were the dogs. Adela actually just wanted to lay with her sister and chill. Lindsey was in character:)

We also use the top of the cage for storage! LOL!! I usaually have to clean it up before Parker goes in there or he will pull whatever he can down and chew it during the night!!
