By the end of the parade, Cody was copying the "jab cross," along with the class. He'll be trained before he even starts going with his Sissie.
Yes, I'm in my late 30's and this was the first time I've ever seen the parade! Makes me shake my head a little, because it was more fun than I'd expected.

Well ever since I pulled out furniture and cleaned, I haven't seen him since. He moved. Well I found out where he went. (Take a wild guess!!!)
Last night Cody came into my bedroom and said he saw a mouse run under his bed. I told him to go turn off the light and come get in bed with me. He left and came back VERY scared (I've never seen him so scared, little bugger must have run right in front of him). His little eyes were full of tears. I held him for a minute then we went to investigate "said" mouse.
The mouse was about 1 1/2 inches. And he didn't seem to be scared of us at all. In fact he was under the bed munching on something (I'm assuming it's something the kids left on the floor). But he just kept doing what he was doing. I went to go get something to capture him. Well, right about that time, Dugan came in and I said, "Get the mouse Dugan!" Not expecting him to do anything but sniff it. (We're talking about the dog who can't wake up to protect our poor little chicken from coyotes!!) Well, I assumed the mouse would get away, but when I finally pulled Dugan away, the mouse lay there, under the bed, not moving. Dugan chomped him! We've got a mouser!
So Dugan IS good for something!!!! ;)

I'll know by early next week when they get an estimate for the repair. The inspector thought it'd be around $12k. Ah well, if this one doesn't work out, another one will!

One page will be Goals for 2008. Do any of you have paper or a kit that looks like a scroll or notebook paper or something like that? I'm going to write down my goals and then put a box after each so I can check each one as I'm done. (I know, I'm such an accountant. Gotta have the check boxes to indicate completion of the task).
Another page idea is to have a picture of me (recently taken by family or friends) surrounded by words that describe me. Such as: mother, scuba diver, diet pepsi drinker, scrapper, runner, photographer, bean counter, etc etc (feel free to send me little descriptions as you see me, if you have any...only nice ones please!!). And yes, I hate to say it after your last post, Kris, but I'm going to add COFFEE DRINKER.
And yet another page idea will be about things I like to do vs things I do NOT like to do. I wonder if those things will change in time? It'll be fun to look back on.
Well, break is over!!

Actually, I've been wanting to do an album about this wonderful topic for ages now, so I have quite a few ideas. If 5 photos isn't enough I might need my FRIENDS help to get me a couple more! ;) Any takers?
In case you didn't figure this out by now, the reason I only have 5 photos is because I'M ALWAYS the one behind the camera. But, I suspect, you girls are just like me...so you know exactly what I mean!!
Tonight I'm going to learn how to do some serious digital scrapbooking. I can't wait!

The accountant in me has kicked in and I'm in planning mode. I'm just about ready to start getting my house to sell, get rid of stuff I've acccumulated over the last 14 years, and start some new and wonderful new activities. Hmm...what shall I do? Join a scuba diving club? Do more scrapbooking (of course!!!), sign up for a fun run, plan a vacation with and without the kids. I think that the opportunities are endless! Plus, I'm excited about thinking about moving to a new house somewhere with a cute little yard, in a nice little neighborhood (sans farm animals) and with lots of other little kids for my munchkins to play with!
Ritha and Kris, my fellow scrapbook buddies, I hope you know...I'm excited to start our challenge! Hmmm...how will we judge? Is it speed or quality or just the fact that we finish?
So many requirements...how will I cope? Now I've got to choose a topic. Kids or me? How to decide! The clock is ticking girls!! Let's plan some scrapbook times to help us out!
