Well how was every one's weekend? Mine was awesome! I worked hard on Saturday and got all my errands and work out of the way so that I was free and clear the rest of the weekend. On Saturday we took the boys over to my mom's house in the evening and they ate dinner with her so that hubby and I could grab a quick bite out just the two of us! We had a great time. We went to a little local place and split a pizza. It was nice and fun. Just what we needed. On Sunday we hung out for most of the day. We had a break through moment with Jack ( my 5 year old)--he went down the basement by himself to play his Star Wars Lego Wii game. Usually he is scared and doesn't want to go down by himself, but today hubby and I were on the couch by the fire and we just didn't want to go downstairs so Jack actually said he would go by himself. We both cheered!!! Since our move a little over a year ago Jack has been extremely attached and doesn't like to be alone so this was a MAJOR break through!!!! I also got some scrappin' in. I finished my DT work for Simply Scrapbooks, and I was able to finish another layout.
I am off today from school (Martin Luther King Day). I have some errands to run in the morning and then I am meeting my mom for lunch. Too fun!!! I also plan on getting a jump on some cards I need to make. Should be a wonderful day!!! (cross fingers)
On to my layout----
2Peas was having a challenge last month to use Jillibean Soup paper. You could make any layout or card but you just had to use their paper. Believe or not I had never used their paper before so this was new to me. I went to my lss and found this line and I fell in instant love with them. I was so glad that I entered their challenge.
Michael was very late to talk and he was 23 months and still not really talking. Finally just one day he started talking. We were so happy. We laugh because I guess he just liked the words associated with Halloween. He went crazy for words like pumpkin, bat, ghost and spider. I guess he just really loved all the Halloween books I was reading to him.
