I planted flowers today.

It looks so pretty and springy (that's a word right??) on the patio now. Tomorrow I'll plant more in the blackyard.

And for my friend Georgana that lives in Utah, that had snow yesterday, I was in shorts and barefooted :)
(I would still trade you places for a week though...maybe even a month!)

Here's a few layouts I did over the weekend.

...and no, that's not green shag carpeting, I took this pic out on the grass :)

...and in honor of the 15,000 views on here, I'm going to do a little giveaway. Just leave a post to let me know you were here, and I'll pick a name on Saturday. I'll round up some of my favorite scrappping goodies and send them to the winner :)

Spring Has Arrived

Happy First Day of Spring!
I love to see the flowers blooming this time of year.

I took this photo last week while we were with Tucker on his field trip to the La Brea Tar Pits. I got some good photos of the tar pits too, but this was one of my faves. I wish I knew what it was?? I would love to have it in my garden.

I'm back...

Not that I went anywhere
Just haven't been blogging
I've just been enjoying being a Mom

The past few weeks...
*Austin got hired at Disneyland. He is so excited!
(He's a bit disappointed though because his 2 best friends didn't get hired)
*Andrew is still working at Disneyland, and thinks it will be fun to have his little bro working there too.
(He's not too thrilled that Austin will start out at almost $2.00 an hour more then when he was first hired)
*Tucker started tennis lessons.
(It's just once a week at the park, but he's loving it!)
*Clayton went through a 3 day training course for his work with the MSF. (Motorcycle Safety Foundation)
(He's 1 of 10 in the country that are now certified to teach the newest class, so he thinks it's pretty cool to have that added to his credentials)
*Gracie turned 4 months old
(She found her feet this week, and thinks it's so funny!)
*and I've just been enjoying watching it all happen :)

I can't believe it's March already. What happened to February??
We have been so busy the past few weeks, I'm ready for things to slow down a bit.
I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon.
I have 60 boxes of this sitting all over my house.

Last week we got this crazy idea that we should take out the carpeting and put in hardwood floors.
What was I thinking.
EVERYTHING in the whole house, except for the bathrooms, has to be moved.
Fun times my friends.
I will look so nice when it is finished though.
I'm just hoping I survive to see it. LOL :)
