Look at this cuteness!!!

I am an avid scrapbooker but ya know what's even more fun than scrapping a page yourself? It's when your friend whips out a page like THIS ONE for ya!!!
Isn't this soo cute?! I LOVE IT! This is Ellie at the 4th of July party last year that we were invited to. Thanks Laura! You are THE BEST!!

Laura made this for the American Idol contest over at Scraptastic. Check out that site, there's so much creative talent over there!

Back in the Saddle!

Honestly, there are few things more frustrating than computer problems, especially when you're a blog addict like me! I haven't been able to blog in months.
I'm here now and need to 'catch up' on my blog strolling too. I have missed seeing everyone's posts and being a part of their lives through their blogs.
Let's see.. what have we been up to lately:

January -
Disney World
The girls experienced "Pirates of the Carribean" for the 1st time and fell head over heels in love with "Captain Jack". There is a really cool mini-show right outside of the ride where you get to see Captain Jack and 'become" a member of his crew. Totally cool and omg.. lemme tell ya... the guy they have portraying Captain Jack is really good!!
Ellie (age 4) braved the "Haunted Mansion" and loved it! I am so glad that my girls are adventurous! We had a great time and actually got to do the 'rides' this Mackie turned 6 and celebrated her birthday at Cinderella's Castle with a lovely dinner. Unfortunately in the middle of the night she got stomach virus that lasted through the entirity of the trip. The poor thing was a trooper though. I think we probably visited every bathroom in all the parks! lol Luckily, none of us got her tummy bug!
Computer Virus *ACK*
My laptop got a virus which brought my computer time to a complete halt! Some type of virus ate the McAffee. Ate it. *GULP! BELLLLLCH!* and it didn't even say 'Excuse me!'
My hubby, mother in law, Mackie and I all had birthdays in January. Needless to say, it's a busy, busy month!

School Pictures
Nothing to write home about... I was pretty disappointed. I won't even bother to scan them in.... *sigh* Poor Ellie had croup for a week. Picture day was the 1st day she was back to school and she was drained, grey and very tired looking. *UGH*
Mackie's turned out "ok" but still nothing like what I wanted. I will have them done again at another place in a week or so.

So that's about all we've been up to, other than the mundane errand running, laundry doing, meal cooking, house cleaning stuff that we all deal with on a daily basis!
we were in NYC the other day. I will blog about that on another day once I get the pictures back!

Ok off I go to do some blog strolling... I gotta go see what you have all been up to!!
