Crappy weekend for teeth...But not so bad for scrapping.

Yeah, teeth - that's right. Actually tooth the be exact - the very front one. Here I am sitting here munching away with my chips & Twizzlers & I feel something stuck to my tooth. I can't rub it off with my tongue so I go to the bathroom to inspect. Low and behold I've chipped my front tooth. So not cool. So totally ruining my weekend - no more smiles, no more going anywhere in public. And I've actually did that. Until tomorrow when I have to go to work, get an appointment & then show everyone when I explain the appt. So so not cool. I wore braces way too long to screw up my teeth now. Urrrgghhhh! So now I have vowed not to eat Twizzlers for a very long time (if ever again)!

Since I did keep myself pretty isolated, I dug out all my scrap stuff & started inking up my fingers. :)

Now I just need to clean up my huge mess. Figure out lunches/clothes for tomorrow. Get Dylan to finally fall asleep. Finish typing the letter to the apartment people. Figure out bank stuff. Put the clothes in the dryer. And then maybe - go to bed.

Fun little weekend...

This has been a pretty nice weekend. Especially nice since we had no school/work Friday & Monday. Woo hoo! And it's not because of the weather - that's even better! Friday me & the went to Springfield to get their pictures taken at Picture People. They turned out really cute so I was happy we went.

Then I did Michelle's mini-album class yesterday & got some scrapbook pages done. Michelle is one talented girl and is the most awesome teacher. Thanks Michelle!

And my mini-album: Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

And I was tagged by Michele so here it goes:

Here are the rules:
1) You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2) You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3) After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
4)At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details.)

And mine should be pretty easy since I only have 3 letters in my middle name. :)
A - Antique lover
N - Never get enough sleep - maybe that's why I'm grouchy :)
N - Need hugs & kisses from kids everyday

I'll tag Em, Mary, & Suzy!

A whole lot of ice....

Is what we got Monday & Tuesday. Like probably around an inch total accumulation. Nasty, scary, slippery stuff. Luckily we cozied it up at the house & didn't even attempt to get out until late Tuesday. Today we started the thaw. The sun came out for a while & melted away a lot - enough to get the kids back in school for one more day (which happens to be party day) before their February break.

Here's just a couple fun shots here at the house:

Bad thing about being cooped up though - is now we have 2 sick. Jerry found out today he has pneumonia (along with his laryngitis) & Kalli has bronchitis. Me & Dylan are threatening to take off to some where warm so we don't get any of the nasty sick stuff.

And a little bit of scrapbooking:

WoOo HOoo!

The Giants won the Super Bowl! Okay so that's not too exciting for me but it definitely put Jerry in a good mood so YEAH! for the Giants!

Yesterday was another fun snow day. The kids played outside and worked on snow men. These were a couple pics from the day that put a smile on my face.

And here's what I've been up to today. Between just a relaxing day & keeping busy during the Super Bowl, I got a few layouts done. I just wish every weekend was this productive.

Snow Day!!!

Yippee! We actually had a honest, to goodness SNOW DAY! Not a whole lot of snow but enough to go sledding! And for it being the kids' first time, they were not scared at all. We loaded up this morning & headed to Aurora to hit the big hill at White Park. Here's some fun shots from our sledding:

And for some odd ball reason, I actually have a little scrapping mojo right now & have gotten some pages done. :) Always fun to do that & like them.
