Sad day. Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson died

Thursday June 25, 2009

Well, they say things come in 3's and they certainly did this time. Ed McMahon died the other day and now Farrah Fawcett who was battling cancer for several years now and was so brave and courageous through it all lost her battle and died. I remember when I was a teenager loving Charlie's Angels and thinking she was beautiful. I mainly remember my sister loving her hair and styling her hair that way for several years. Even in my wedding, my sister had her "Farrah Fawcett hair".

The other shocking news was that Michael Jackson died from cardiac arrest at the age of 50. I have not been a huge (recent) fan of his but I do remember when he came out with Thriller and thinking it was one of the best (and wierdest) videos out there. He invented the famous moon walk and he has been such a big icon in the music industry. He is certainly one who will go down in the history books and will be missed and remembered forever. He leaves 3 small children behind. I hope they can find peace in thier lives with all of this turmoil surrounding them.

Abused mannequin

Wednesday June 24, 2009

Ellen and I ran into JCPenny's and Ellen found a top she liked, but the only ones left on the rack were Large. I looked at the one on the mannequin and she was wearing a medium, so Ellen decided to to undress this poor mannequin, remove the medium top and put the large on her.

I was so embarrased but couldnt stop laughing either! As Ellen was trying to get the medium top off, the mannequins arm fell off and then Ellen got embarrased. I couldnt stop laughing, I decided this was the picture/moment for today.

Ellen was able to succesfully clothe the mannequin again and put her arm back on and by the loos of her now, she is just fine!

Becca is 11 today!!!!

Tuesday June 23, 2009

My middle baby is 11 years old today!

I cant believe she is 11 already. We decided that we would wait until Auntie Gerri and Nicho and Tali get back from Guate to celebrate big for her birthday, but in the mean time, she got her big gift which was a cell phone, she got some new clothes and we all got to eat delicious cupcakes.

We LOVE Chick-Fil-A

Monday June 22, 2009

Ethan and I love chick-fil-a.

In his kids meal, they always give him a toy which he can exchange for ice cream if he wants, but the bag was open and in it we found this cute little cow with his hands raised and he is wearing a sign that says "All in favor say Moo"

I thought it was adorable so I wouldnt let him trade it in. I think these cows are the funniest things always encouraging people to eat chicken verses beef!

Lets see how many different ones we can collect.

Happy Fathers Day!

Sunday June 21, 2009

Today was Fathers Day! A lazy day for Jason! He woke up late, like around 11am, then just had his cofee, read the paper, ate breakfast, cleaned up in his office a little bit and watched a movie with the kids. Happy Fathers Day Jason. You are THE BEST daddy any kid could ask for!

These boots are made for walking!

Saturday June 20, 2009

Ellen had these cute white western style boots a long time ago that I was saving for BEcca, but when I asked Becca to try them on to see if they fit her now, she looked at them and said to me "Mom, I dont think Iw ill ever wear those!" I begged her to just try them on and said she could at least wear them when she goes horse back riding. She agreed and once she got them on, she had a change of heart and said to me "Mom, These are actually cute on me! I think I will wear these a lot!" HA HA!

Ellens starts her new job today at the CP

Friday June 19, 2009

Ellen started her new job today at the Cotton Patch. She was so excited and nervous at the same time. She was so happy that she gets to wear jeans and a CP t-shirt to work. I am happy that she finally got a job.

Becca looks like a fly!

Thursday June 18, 2009

Becca decided it would be funny to put on Ellen's sunglasses today, but because her face is so much smaller, she looked like a fly!

Andrew loves to pay

Wednesday June 17, 2009

Today while we were scrapping at the SBB, Cheryl came by with Andrew and a few of the girls let him go up to the counter to pay for thier stuff. He just loved doing it and was so cute at it too. He was so happy to go up there with the money that he would forget to wait for the change.

Sitting by the pond

Tuesday June 16, 2009

Today I had some time to kill and found this beautiful and peaceful pond to sit by. The neighborhood is absolutely stunning and this pond is gorgeous. It wa so nice to sit there listening to the birds chirping or the water running, watching the ducks swim by and runners run by.

Becca to Ortho

Monday June 15, 2009

Becca was all excited to go to the ortho today because she knew that very soon she would be getting her braces off and I think she was thinking he might tell her today that she could get them off today, but that was not the case. We are looking at 12 more weeks, so it wont be long now!

Closet purge

Sunday June 14, 2009

Today I decided I needed to go through our master bedroom closet and purge all the clothes in there.

I ended up with several bags to give away, plus I then decided to do the coat closet the entry way and ended up with several coats too to give away!

It felt so good to do this and now I have a lot fo space in both closets!

Cropping at SBB

Saturday June 13, 2009

We were able to go cropping today at the new scrapbook store, I wasnt sure I would be able to go due to Becca's taekwondo training schedule, but at the last minute, Jason said he could take Ethan with him, so I got to go scrapbooking, The SBB is such a cute and fun place ot crop! Cant wait to do it again!

Ellen's new shoes

Thursday June 11, 2009

Ellen needed a pair of black non-slip sneakers for her new job and while we were in the shoe store, she found these really cute black wedges she just had to have. She loves these shoes and I do have to admit, they do look cute on her!

Ellen's breathing treatment

Wednesday June 10, 2009

Ellen has had this really bad cough for over a month now and after a treatment of advair and prednisone, both which did not work, the doctor wanted to do a breathing treatment on her.

She had to breathe real hard into this tube for like 5 or so seconds out and in 3 times, then inhale this medicine and then do the breathing thing again.

She was so funny, she reminded me to take a picture of this by motioning to me while inhaling!

Have you seen the new I-Phone??? It comes in whiute now, but I still like the black, but the coolest feature on it is the voice control feature!!!! Talk about hands free! My family and I were just talking about this a couple of days ago how it would be nice to have a voice control feature, except we took it one step further and said it would be cool if the phone would beep to let you know you have a voice mail or text (which it does) and then you coauld say, "read text" or "Read voicemail" and the phone would read you what the text said and then you could say "respond" and then say what you wanted to say and a text would be sent back!

It sure would help all those people who I see texting on the road! Stupid people!

I love my speaker in my car for my i-phone!

Love the video camera feature on the new phone too!

Elsie hair

Monday June 8, 2009

If you are a scrapbooker, you know who Elsie is. I have always liked her, her little quirky side and her uniqueness. I used to really like how she did her "different and unusaul" scrapbooks, but recently she has gotten really out there and I am not liking it so much, but I still love her cuteness, her style and really gotta love her hair! I love this choppy look!

GASC shopping

Thursday June 4, 2009

Today was shopping day at GASC. Terri and I stayed at the Days Inn last night and I got up in time to be there shopping by 9am and Terri got there about 10am. We shopped and shopped and had tons of fun! I even won a door prize from 2 Scrappy Sisters. I was able to choose a layout of my choice. I did some damage, about $200 worth - not bad!!! Here is a picture of me with my winning ticket!


Wednesday June 3, 2009

Today I went to the all day crop at the GASC in Arlington. It was a lot of fun. I was cropping with Terri, Gayle, Diana, Tabitha, Ann, and Pam. We also saw a bunch of other friends from fond recollections. It was freezing in there and Tabitha asked her husband to bring her some blankets, which he did! We all benefited from that!


Tuesday June 2, 2009

We had a really pretty robin visit us today. It flew in and landed on top of the fence and stayed there long enough for me to grab my camera and take its picture.

Care Now Visit

Thursday May 28, 2009

I had to go to Care Now tonight since I wasnt feeling very well. I knew I have a bad sinus infection and I didnt think I can wait til tomorrow, so off I went. I love using their web check in. You do it over the computer, they call you to verify the info and tell you about how long the wait will be and then they call you again when they tell you it is time to go in. Easy! Hopefully I will be feeling better in a day or two!
