I finally scrapbooked!!!

Some of you may already know, and some of you may not.
But I opened a scrapbooking group on yahoo and have ran it for 4 years now!
In celebration of our 4 years we held an "online scrapbooking crop" (Crop meaning doing challenges, chatting, working on scrapbooking items..etc)
I thought since it's been forever since I scrapped I would post a couple layouts.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Just want to take this chance to
tell you all Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope your whole day was full of LOVE.
To all our friends and family,
we don't say it nearly enough but we LOVE you all!!
Time passes so quickly, and before you know it..weeks..months..go by
and we go so long without seeing each other or saying I LOVE you to one another.
I LOVE you is not something that should just be said to a spouse or a parent or your children.
Many people feel funny saying "I LOVE you" to people they "actually do LOVE..but I say if you LOVE someone tell them....especially while the opportunity is there to tell them. LOVE is not a shameful emotion. It's the best emotion a human can again to you friends and family, we LOVE you all!!

Come to the dark side...........

Caleb had a friend over (Dylan) and they wanted to try the
"Goth" look out sooo bad.
They begged me all evening to put make up on them.
I was kinda hesitant about it because I wasn't sure what Dylan's parents would think
about all this........but.....I figured it can be washed off and I could take the heat if they got mad :)
So here they are in what they call Goth, and thinkin they are SO cool!!!
Of course Dan was not too impressed lol...

Hey Batter Batter ..........Swing....

Ahh........and so "Friday the 13th" begins.....
No school for the kids and a relatively nice day outside....
So the kids head outside, for what *I* beleive to be a friendly game of baseball........
Then the shrilling scream comes from outside............
And then I hear Caleb yell "MOM!!!!! COME QUICK"..
Everyone that is a parent knows that heart stopping feeling!!!
So I rush outside and Caleb says "MOM! I accidently hit Carter with the metal baseball bat!!!"
Talk about freaking out!!
I thought his jaw must have been broken!!
I instantly call Dan home to check out the "baby".
Dan assures mom, that she can calm down that Carter is going to be fine
and there is no need to rush him to the emergency room...I was ready to call an ambulance lol..
I made him sleep in our bed so I could wake him up throughout the night so I knew that he was ok....I think it made me more scared then Carter.
Today he's not acting like anything even happened.
Same ole' Carter, full of piss and vinegar!
