I can't wait to get my copy!! I have 2 layouts in the book. One is of my friends wedding in 2006 and the other is of my younger dd's first season of Soccer. I am just tickled pink to be published in this book!

Quick visit

Dan's mom came for a small visit this week. She got here last Thursday and left this morning. Made for an eventful week. On Thursday I had a plan for what we were going to accomplish before she arrived, but that went out the window when Dan called me to say he had to go to the hospital for back spasms. We ended up sitting at the hospital from 10 am to about 12:30. UGH! He spent the rest of Thrusday, all day Friday and most of Saturday groaning and taking pills for them. But he had to go back to work on Monday. This morning he got up and drove his mom back to the airport then went into work. He is still feeling the effects. I feel bad for him, but that is how the military goes!!

While grandma was here, though we did do some fun things. Katie, Paula and I went to the base library to scrapbook. We didn't get home until midnight. Katie helped grandma finish a whole bunch of pages as well as doing several of her own. Daniel was less of a help to me. I only managed to get one thing done. But at least I have a start to my workshop project example! I only need to make my cards now.

We also did school and soccer shopping and now I AM BROKE! I hate this time of year. Thank heaven Grandma decided to pay for their haircuts. They came out so cute. Daniels hair even got cut. As soon as I have some nice pics of them I will post them. With school starting tomarrow, and Paula her until this morning, I haven't had an opportunity to get a good photo yet.

In anticipation of tomarrow, we are making cookies for teachers right now. Found a YUMMY recipie for oatmeal peanutbutter chocolate chip cookies. Make your own!! Here is the recipie!!

1 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
