Full Weekend

and by full I mean full house! last friday we had christopher's kids for the weekend and on saturday my sister calls asking to spend the night because they have been without power for 2 days. i said come on up. it just means there will be NINE people in our 2 bedroom apt! (my sister, mom, skylar and seth) insert Lord Jesus, please restore their power!
it was all good though. had a good visit. christopher took the kids to the park and we went shopping at REI. Linda got those barefoot running shoes (not those funny toe kind) super comfy she says, but i was eyeing the merrell moab waterproof hiking boot. i have an upcoming beach hike to think about :)

sunday, my mom stayed home with seth and linda dropped us off at the movie theater to catch a matinee of E.T. Linda was excited to go to Glazer's camera store for the first time while i was excited to see E.T. again. the folks at SIFF did a really good job preparing for the family friendly movie. before it started they invited all the kids down for a Scream Contest with candy as the prize. they had to watch Gert (drew barrymore) scream as she sees E.T. for the first time and mimick it. May i just say here that Christopher's youngest Megan won the contest! can i get a woot woot! it was so funny. i wish i would have recorded it. her face was hilarious as she screamed at the top of her lungs.

i leave you with some adorable photos of seth. everybody wanted to hold him.

2012 CHA

so i have been surfing the web and it's that time again for new product to start appearing soon. anything catch your eye? i am such a big fan of heidi swapp that i always look forward to what she is up to. i also like the new studio calico stuff and jenni bowlin punches. i was happy to see that some of the papers heidi is putting out are some of the papers we got in her online class mouse paper give. (so i don't have to buy those cuz i already own them!) just hit the print button and voila!

i also like the ruffle paper by Dear Lizzy and can't wait to see it in person.

Mouse Paper: Give

I totally made Christmas easy this year when I signed up for Heidi Swapp and Jessica Sprague's class Mouse Paper: Give. The frames went to my crafty girlfriends and the magnetic bookmarks went into stockings.

Happy New Year 2012 and Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Today is my mom's 64th birthday and to celebrate i met up with linda, mom, skylar and seth at bellevue square mall for lunch at p.f. chang's and shopping.
i used my sony cybershot i got for christmas to take some photos for the day. thankfully my mom was willing. usually it's a big No!
i used this really cool setting on my camera that will automatically smooth your skin. I.Love.It!
