It was Austin's 7th birthday on the 27th. We did a little party here at home for him, but his real party was saved for today (Sunday the 30th). He got some awesome gifts from his Grandpa Mike and Grandma Robin at his game yesterday (Mom you will have to send me some of the pictures you took of austin with you and his birthday bag next to the car). He got a Wii, a star wars action figure and some awesome shirts and swim trunks from them.

Today we went over to Grandma Karen's house and had a nice party there. There was yummy food and this nice spongebob icecream cake. Even his great grandparents (Jim and Fran) where there. It was very nice. He got some neat things there, some Starwars lego ships, a wii game for his wii he has at Grandma Karen's house (for when he goes over there on the weekends) and a couple other things I can't think of right now lol.

I visited with Kate for a while (Dustin's sister (almost 16) and she lent me some new vampire (YA) books (Vampire kisses) and the Nora Roberts Vampire (circle) trilogy; and I got my New Moon book back from her. She had spring break last week so she got to read the whole book and now is starting on Eclipse. I told her she needs to read the Cassandra Clare series, City of Bones and City of Ashes, I just finished them and loved them so much! They remind me of the Twilight series.

Okay well I better get off of here and get to bed. I am very tired from the day! TTYS

Opening Day

Today was opening day for Austin's little league, second year. We were at the park pretty much all day. We had family members from Ireland visiting my parents for the last three weeks, they were there to watch Austin's first game, my parents and Dustin's mom. It was really nice to have everyone there. Anyways I am going to keep this short and share some pictures from the day...

Some new layouts

I thought I would get on and post my CX assignments I finished and said I would post for you to see. I have a little free time right now, Dustin took the boys out for a hike and Adriana Isabella is sleeping in her room. I am also taking a small break from working on my LRS kit projects to post to my blog :) I thought if I took a little break and got online for a while I could get back to it with a fresh mind lol. I am feeling a bit lazy and would so like to be laying in bed with the new book I am reading (I saw it on the new realeases shelf at barnes and nobles, it's a vampire book of course (Hunting the Hunter by Shiloh Walker), it's pretty good so far. I will have to post a few of the books I have gotten/collected LOL from B&N the last few months in my next post, I got them to read to tide me over until the new Stephenie Meyer book "The Host" comes out. I can't wait!)


Okay back to my two new layouts, This first one was a neat challenge for all 20 CX DT members to do. 20 takes on 3 products, Bumblebee sugar coated glitter, circle embossing folder and the smitten white paper ribbon. This was such a fun layout to do and I got to use alot of the new MM Garden party line, which I just LOVE so much!
