June is half over already???!!!!

Can you believe it???? It blows my mind away to think that 4th of July is just around the corner now and then before you know it summer will be over!!! WOW!!

Well anyhow the boys started a beginner t-ball class on Friday with 2 of their best friends from the neighborhood! It was SOOO cute the class is for 3 and 4 year olds and it is taught by 2 teenage boys. The boys have been SOOO excited to start t-ball and then the fact that 2 of their best friends would be with them sealed the deal! The night before t-ball the boys wanted to practice in the back and well we still had their pool out and well they decided to dunk their mitts into the pool when I wasn't looking! So Nicholas' expensive all leather mitt NEVER dried in time for t-ball and he cried because of that! So his first t-ball class was not as good for him as he couldn't get past the wet mitt! Joseph enjoyed the class, but was bored by having to wait so long in between turns that he found mischief to get into! At one point it was pretty cute he saw a ball laying in the field and went over picked it up and brought it to his coach saying "here's a ball to throw to me!" Here are a couple pics of my babies playing.
I got awesome scrappy mail this week! :) I received my AWESOME prize from Sherry at Dixie Pieces- a house shaped acrylic album! I am SOOO excited to get started on this! I think I am going to use the few pictures I have form our move to make the album! I just have to find the pictures now! Ha! That should be fun as my mom took the pics and gave me copies-now where on earth did I put them???? On that same day I also got the latest copy of Creating Keepsakes magazine and the next day I got my cards from the card swap at Dixie Pieces! The ladies there did a FABULOUS job on their cards! That was fun!


So I was a "bad" girl and I used that AWESOME 50% off coupon for Michael's and bought a cuttlebug! ;) I can't wait to play with it!! I was at Joann's and wanted to get it there, but it was more money there, but I did get a bunch of dies and embossing things on clearance! I am hoping to go play with it later, but I am just SO exhausted these days I don't know! I now plan to go back to Joann's and get some more stuff as they have all that stuff on sale this week! I was planning to go this morning, but the boys are not feeling good, so maybe tomorrow!



I hope everyone had a good Father's Day, ours was quiet. My grandfather is still recovering and didn't want to do anything and my mom and step dad were up at their condo in Fox Lake, and I tried calling my dad and he didn't answer, so who knows what he was doing! Dh's family didn't have anything and his dad is no longer with us, so we just hung out at home. The boys did work hard on picture frames again for Father's Day gifts, they REALLY love making them! Here is a pictures of the one they made for their dad I will post the other ones later. We customized each frame to that person's interests.


Well I better go get some lunch ready for us and maybe I will feel like scrapping during nap time! I haven't scrapped since the last crop I went to on the 6th!! Life has been busy and with the boys wanting to play outside every night I'm exhausted when we get in and can't get my butt off the couch! Oh yeah the contest is over now so I can show you my last creation from my last scrappy adventure! The picture is bad as it was taken at night, I should try and do a new one-add that to the growing list! LOL!

OK this is REALLY bad I will change it later!

TFL!
