Happy Belated Birthday Anja!!!!

Um, and yeah. I hope it's ok that I totally stole that picture off your blog. And you aren't really that pale.

Bad scanner, bad!!!

We had another speedy weekend. Here it is Sunday night already, and the boys home from school tommorrow. I'm headed off to work. Yippee.

It was a good weekend- didn't get as much scrapping done as I normally like, but did get out to Ikea with Mom and Alison which is always great fun! Got these super cool orange trays that look like funky versions of the mini-trays the waiters in Buenos Aires brought our coffee out on.

Meeting Saturday night was GREAT. We had different groups of three plan some way to help us mem0rize some of our songs. We were laughing so hard not only at the skits themselves but at each other laughing! I have some pictures to post, but they would require so much 'splaining- and unless you understood the way we meet, then they would probably just look like party pix. But I love the fact that we come together to know the Lord, and have so much fun participating!!! A guy from New Mexico came to visit and stayed with us, and our kids fell in love with him. Emma was all pouty this evening wondering when Kevin was coming back. (It was great to meet you, Kevin! Come back anytime!)

Today we went to eat at Rise n Shine, our local greasy spoon, and then I wandered around Recollections for a bit while the kids played over at Donna's and Bill watched the game over at Dan's. I had almost convinced myself to go for HOF, laid the rules on my scrapping table and started pulling pictures, but then my stomach started hurting. Maybe next year. Maybe if I give myself just a BIT more time, eh?

Went to see Memoirs of a Geisha AGAIN tonight with Mom, Kim and Annette. Love, love, love that movie. Love it. The colors, the music, the story- it's just a feast for the eyes and ears.

Ya know, sometimes the posts are just a little boring.

And sometimes that's OK.

I am what I am.

I'm just glad that I had some fun time with you and you are never boring! (Maybe bored but never the other.) Finished the 3rd book. Oh, it is rather sad but sooo good. Thanks Missy for giving these Josephine Bonaparte books to us!

Sarah! I love my birthday page! Yes, I actually am THAT pale. Seriously. You are so awesome! I know what you mean about HOF. I decided to go for it. And as soon as I decided I lost my groove and felt unmotivated. It's almost like it's too much pressure. I probably won't finish the assignments in time.
