I got my Rebel!

Oh my goodness! It feels soooo good to be able to take photos again! PLUS, my last day of work for the summer was Thursday, so I might even be able to do something with the photos! I am so excited to hang out with my kids this summer and be a Mommy again!!!

Jack Playing Hockey

We have been wanting some of you to get out to see one of Jack's hockey games. We understand that isn't too realistic right now for Mommy and Daddy, so this will have to do. A huge THANK YOU goes out to my friend, Elsa, mom of two of Jack's buddies and teammates for taking these shots! Enjoy!

I need to stop entitling posts "Has It Really Been This Long?" Because this time it has been over seven months! Just wanted to record some of the cute things about the kids. Jack is loving ice hockey and has little league evaluations tomorrow. He's into reading the My Weird School books, and is all about hanging with his best buddies he has had since kindergarten.
Speaking of kindergarten, Charli is a kinder and loves it. She is reading, her faves being the Brand New Reader books.
I am working at a fabulous school in the district. The principal is an amazing woman! I love my colleagues, the parents, and especially the children! Since I can no longer be Volunteer Extraordinaire at my own kids' school, I still participate by being on the Construction Site Committee, and I am on the Committee for an upcoming Bond Election.
What else? Ran a half marathon in October, took a long break, and I am slowly getting back into it now.
The kids each had sleepovers last night, and now they want to go to the indoor trampoline park. WOohoo! I tend to be the oldest person jumping there, but I don't mind! It is sooooo FUN!
Both my kids are super loving, and have had a tough adjustment with me returning to work. Jack has the odd cry over missing me, and both of them love to run their sweet, loving little hands over me when we hang out at story time (or whenever.) I looooove them! In fact, I am going to hang out with them RIGHT NOW!

Has it really been this long?

Has life gotten so much in the way that I've forgotten about reflecting? Indeed it has! But now we are on summer vacation! Woohoo! Hopefully I'll be posting more. This is crazy. The entire last year has just FLEWN by!

It's a bizarre, drizzley, overcast day here in Los Gatos. Unusual for June. But perfect for running! Now, if Denyelle would wake up, we could get going! Jack's got a bit of a cough this morning, and Charli is still asleep. Apparently the last week of school wore them out! Bring on the sleeping in!

I'm pumped to go to a family gathering today. I need some family time!

Vicki's Birthday Present

Vicki (my sis) asked for some scrap pages to hang on her wall. I DORKED and only took a pic of ONE of the three. I created two on foam core and one on cardboard. This one is on black foam core. I LOVE it, and Vicki did, too! Enjoy!

I scrapped!

Ok, I actually did this a few weeks ago, but never posted. Janna never checks my blog, so I think it's pretty safe to assume she won't see this! This is the first page I did for her and David's wedding album. I did double-duty and did it for a scraplift challenge over at ScrapLove, too. It felt soooo good to create!

Ok, Seriously...

How on earth did I think I could do 365 with a broken camera and no time to scrap??? This project does not seem to be working out for me, but I can still try. We'll see. Life is SUPER busy!I have been trying to save Spanish Instruction at Jack's school, I have been helping DH a it with Pacific Ice, Jack is taking ice skating lessons, DH's commercial debuted yesterday, Jack's school had a Jogathon Friday, and, most importantly, Charli turned five this week! Today we're having a family birthday party for her. Since we had a commercial debut party last night, we haven't even begun prepping for it. It will be casual BBQ style, so that is fine.

I miss scrapping. I miss it terribly. It's driving me CRAZY that I am too busy to scrap. I might need to start staying up some late nights so I can scrap for my own sanity. I just received a GORGEOUS prize package from DreamGirls!!!! Wow! Thank you! I can't wait to play with it. Oh! And I received Janna's wedding photos!!! Woohoooo! Can't WAIT to play with those! I have dug into the stuff I was saving for that project... just stole a bunch of solid colored cardstock... stuff that's easy to replace. I need to get on that!

Alight. The kids and I are having cookies for breakfast. I think we better have a little protein and fruit, too, so we don't have a sugar low in an hour! LOL! Ciao for now!
