A good cause

Well - I can't turn back now. I've started planning my 2nd anual scrapbook for Cystic Fibrosis. I have the comittee together and we had a meeting last week. Its going to be held on September 15th from 10:00a.m to 10:00p.m.. Hopefully i will have lots of prizes and goodies to give out. Anyone that knows anyone that can donate (doesn't have to be scrapping goodies) let me know. I have a tax id that i can give them for tax purposes. Its going to be held at the new Solomen Center in Ogden thanks to Bobbie and Casey! I can't wait - its a great central location. The dinner provided will be Costa Vida - that should bring people in right there. The cost is going to be $35 per person and that includes a meal and some goodies. 85-90% of that will be going to CF so hopefully the cost doesn't discourage alot of people. It will be worth it. My sil Carol is going to be making me a cute blinkie or banner that i can post online too! So i've got my work cut out for me - I wonder why i do things like this until the day comes and i see the results - so i will just keep my chin up and keep pluggin along - after all - cute little Ethan is worth every second of it!

I sent of my MMM submission today. I can't beleive i enter things like that - I think its the extra push it gives me to create and do my best. I actually am pretty happy with 4 out of 5 of my Layouts. Now the torture of waiting......... i guess i have the crop to keep me occupied.

I have great pictures of Lagoon and the Raptors game i need to get up - will work on that tomorrow!

Bad Blogger

I know i've been MIA for a while - we've had a crazy week. 2 Weddings, Baylee's birthday, ward party and to top it off - a sick mommy. I just got back from taking Baylee to the dr. for her one year appointment - she has an ear infection, double yeast infection (mouth too), red throat, her 2 fang teeth are coming in - before her 2 front teeth. The dr. said she was dentally retarded - ha - funny dr. joke. Plus she got 3 shots. I don't think it could have gotten any worse than that. Anyways - i can't beleive she is one! She is such a good baby - even with all of this she has been pretty good. She crawled to the top of the stairs today - 16 of them - with me behind her of course.

The ward party was a Mexican Fiesta - and the boys and I and Grandma Cole spent half of the afternoon on Saturday decorating Sombrero's for a contest. Ethan's is the Money one and Mason's is an Under the Sea one. It was so fun - Ethan didn't really get into the decorating and his one first place. Mason is pretty darn creative - and of course we couln't have done it without grandma.

I scrapbooked on Friday night up at Carol's house. My Mother-in-law and Sister in-laws had a girls night - it was fun - we watched Catch & Release and did some scrapbooking - i will post the LO i finished tomorrow. I havn't uploaded it yet.

Well i'm off to put the kids to bed and do some more scrapbooking!!

Life is just so crazy for us right now - i havn't had alot of time to focus on journaling it. I have a few days to catch up on. Dean and I attempted to get away this weekend and enjoy eachother's company. We went fishing on the South Fork of the Snake River in Idaho. We stayed in some great cabins and went with Katie and Geramy. I had a hard time letting go of home - my first time leaving Baylee - she will be ONE in a few weeks - i stopped nursing while i was gone - she had high fevers due to another Kidney infection ( a whole other story on its own). I had a loan close Friday (of all days) and then i forgot to renew my Mortgage liscense before i left and Aunt FLO came to visit the day before i left. So needless to say - i had a hard time focusing on fishing or my husband. We ended up coming home a day early because Baylee's fever was still up Saturday morning and I didn't want my mom and dad to have to worry about her. So my get away - was really more stressful than fun. But here are a few pictures. I did come home to something fun and I will post that later tonight.
