Charli is 3!

Here is Charli on her 3rd birthday! She is so proud to say she is "fee!"

And here are some photos from her party, which was the day before her real birthday. The party was a giraffe theme, and was an absolute blast!

What a glorious day!

What a beautiful, glorious day! The sky was blue, the air was clean, the sun was shining... I LOVE living in California! I had been a little bummed about having such a short winter. I felt guilty for spending so much money on the kids' winter wardrobes that they wouldn't wear. But when I felt the sunshine on my face today, I thought "The heck with winter wardrobes!" I'm sure we'll have some more (badly needed) rain, but today was amazing!!!

Also took the brain quiz today, and here's what I got...
Your Brain is Yellow

Of all the brain types, yours is the most intellectual.
You crave mental stimulation, and your thoughts tend to very complex.
Your thoughts tend to be innovative and cutting edge, though many people don't understand them.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about science, architecture, and communication.

Love Month!

This is an old layout... I did it back in November. But since it is a Love layout and Valentine's Day is coming up, I thought it would be appropriate to post now! This is my cute husband and me on our wedding day, eight and a half years ago!

Rain is finally here!

That may sound odd... being happy about the rain. But I live near a reservoir that is so low right now, we're going to be in trouble this summer if it does not fill up! So I'm happy about the rain!

What else is happening around here? Well, Jack is almost reading! It's so exciting! He just had his 100th Day of Kindergarten on Wednesday. I picked up some fabulous "Now I'm Reading" books by Innovative Kids, and he can read them!

Charli is so full of love these days. She continually gives pets and loves, and says "I love you so much! I love you ever and ever and EVER!" So precious!

I am so excited that Club Scrap is going to be a regular sponsor at The School of Scrap! I am also really looking forward to some scrapping buddies from Scrap-N-Circle coming over for a crop on Scrappy Sunday! I'm on a Scrappy High!

I've spent quite a bit of time on the computer today, so now I'm off to snuggle up to hubby on the couch!

Journalling Entry

At The School of Scrap, we're given journalling prompts, and a recent one asked about the last time we cried. Thought I'd record it here. The last time I cried was a couple weeks ago when Charli had her almost-last day at The Little Gym. The instructors were asking if I had signed her up for spring. Well, I didn't sign her (nor Jack) up for spring, because our finances are too tight right now. I felt awful having to admit that... I felt sort of ashamed, I guess. And I was sad that Charli and I wouldn't be doing gymnastics together anymore (at least not for now.) Not to mention the fact that my local scrapbook store is right next door. So I had a little cry. I was sad and frustrated. But now that I've gotten over it, I've decided to look at the bright side. No more rushing to gym class! And the kids and I will have more free time to do whatever we want together! I guess every cloud really does have a silver lining! We've been doing Art, creating Valentine's Cards, and bouncing in the bouncy house!
