Happy 8th Birthday, Aiden!

February 13th is Aiden's birthday.  It landed on a Saturday this year so we actually got to celebrate it on his day!  We went to (as crazy as this sounds) Christian's Orthodontists office where they have an actual movie theater inside with seating for 25 people, popcorn, candy, juice packs...the works!!! His two best friends came and a girl from class....the showing was minimal and I could tell it bugged him but he made the best of it and had fun.

So after eating junk food until they nearly threw up, we ordered pizza! one was hungry--so it was dinner for us later that night.  Best gift of  2010????  Bakugan Maximus Dragonoid   don't know what that is?JOIN THE CLUB!!!

Later that night we went to a Killer Bee's Hockey game...what fun!! more on that tomorrow though! I'm trying to get back into my posting almost daily---at least weekly!  

For those that sent cards, gifts or called...thank you!!! he appreciated it.  Each day (even now...) he runs to the mailbox and searches for a card for himself in there. :)  So it was so nice of you to remember him!! he got Gift cards, cards, money, a few toys...he also got a bedroom make over (including a new loft bed, cubbies, and TV mounted to his wall (complete with direct tv!) and roller blades!!  All in all I think it was a good birthday for a kid turning 8!

Snow Day

HA! not here there's not a snow day (although my kids would adore a moment of making snow angels) A MOMENT...cuz we don't have the right gear for snow.  But my sweet sister is in PA and she's probably getting hammered with snow, snow and more snow.  To Heather and her gang...I wish you a quick safe thaw and happy "SNOW DAYS!" off from school.

another contest!

I'm a contest entering fool lately it seems, but my all time favorite webiste for sewing just launched a new site the DYI DISH where they'll "SHOW" you how to do stuff rather than just sell patterns and let you muddle through! LOL this would have been so helpful to me when I was starting out--but I'm glad they're doing it now...

So go check it out...and Kim & Kris...thanks for the entries!! PICK ME!! I would love a new machine!!!

The Wicked Witch

While running around the house she was singing "Just then...The Witch....went riding on her broom stick thumbin' for a hitch"

she managed to stop for 5 seconds to peek at her basket of toys---and I caught her...when she saw the camera she just posed...I can't help it if she's a natural, can I?

I'm entering a contest to win $35.00 certificate in her store!! I hope you'll jump over and check her out! her patterns is what I used to create these fabulous outfits for Jillian!!
