Couch potato

This is why we leave the TV on all day while we're at work.

She watches it.
Even when we dont think she's paying any attention to it, she will come running from another room because she hears her favorite commercial come on.
We change up the channel all the time while we're at work. Sometimes she watches Animal planet, sometimes Ellen and Oprah. This time it was just a news story that got her attention.
Just about anything that has an animal in it...

I always wonder how often she does this during the afternoon.

mosaic Monday, on Sunday

Its been months since I've taken the time to participate in Mosaic Monday so I took the opportunity on this snowy Sunday morning to search out some flickr photos in a color that's totally inspiring me lately. Although its a day early, its when I have the time.

It must be this long grey winter that has me longing for turquoise blue anything, but I cant get enough of this color. I want to surround myself with it everywhere, but restraint is in order I think. Im totally going to paint my scraproom this color....

nine in oh nine

This layout has been sitting on my scrap table for about a month now. That probably shows how often I've been scrapping lately. So far, 2009 is starting off just like 2008 ended, without much scrap happening. It makes me sad that I havent made time for it lately, and hopefully I'll get going again soon. Even though I didnt do much in '08, one thing I did do, and Im so happy that I did, was my 8 on the 8th album.
Its time I sit down and spend some time with Feb 9/9th so it was time to dust this one off and put it in the book.
Here's the cover and inside page of this years mini album -
And here's the January entry.

Turning 4

Theres such a difference between turning three and turning four.
I think Ethan really "got it" this year. He has been anxiously awaiting his birthday this year. I dont know if he really got it when he was two, turning three. But he definetly knew what his birthday would bring when he was three, turning four.
Having your birthday means you get to feel super special...you get lots of hugs
You get to open lots and lots of presents and cards....

and I think most exciting, was that everyone sang Happy birthday and he got to blow out 4 big candles.
