*Here is a helpful hint: When you child breaks several eggs on you stupid grooved hardwood floors( so not a fan of the grooved hadwood floors. Whoever came up with that idea hated his mom!-just ssaying) -scoop the majority of the egg up with your hands. I tried the towels last time, but really, just use your hands to get most of the slime up. It took my 90 minutes to clean it all up.
Where are the pictures you ask. Well, I did hear my friend Spicy before I started cleaning, but alas since I signed up to be the scrapbook parent again for Ethan's class and I have not gotten any pictures yet and it is the last day they meet in September, the camera was with him.
One last word of advice. When you realize that a fridge lock is needed in your house- Make SURE it actually gets locked when the door gets closed!

Anyway to keep a long story from getting even longer- I looked at the clock and it was 25 minutes til, so I grab Seth and head to pick up Ethan. When I get there at 2 minutes til the parking lot is e-m-p-t-y.
When looking at the clock be sure to actually look at the hour hand and not just the minute hand!!!
Yep I was 1 hour early. As my Dad said when I called home to kill some time waiting for preschool to *actually* end, 'Better an hour early than an hour late." Yes, that's the upside of me spending an extra hour in the car with my 2 year old.

My mess, I mean my stamping treasures, along with all the play room stuff has been moved into the family room area to clear the path for the carpet cleaners. By the way they should have been here 20 minutes ago, should I be scared that they are not going to show?
This is just a good picture of all the stamp stuff I have. Clay decided a cabinet wouldn't hold it all because it has definitely grown since we moved 2 years ago. (Well, of course it has I've become a Demo since then!) Hopefully my stuff will find its way home tonight and I can get started on my swaps for Saturday.

Ethan had fun climbing Dad to get to the apples!
Maggie was not sure about using Dad as a ladder,
I love this picture of the boys!
Here we are at the end of the outing.

Our Moms Club had our monthly night out last night. We went Rock Climbing. I initally thought there was no way in the world that I would make it to the top.
I also free climbed a wall about 15 feet a few times (at least 3 times). It was awesome! (and I am sure counted as a few exercise points *wink* )
The fun part was going down, because it was an automated rope. It was very fun, but also very scarey the first time I let go!
For this card I went with a blue theme. I have no idea why because I am sure it is not his favorite color! I used night of navy and brocade blue with whisper white. I like how the saying is in both colors. It would have been easier if I actually had the Rich Regal Marker set, but that is the only set I do not have. I used the Happy Birthday Embossing folder on the Whisper White behind the balloon and the Spots & Dots on the Night of Navy strip, but it is hard to tell in the picture. I tried using the Crystal Ice Stickles another chance on the white Happy Birthday section, but I seem to get a lot of glue and not much glitter. I stapled the Ribbon with a colored staple. I loaded black ones, but thankfully you can''t tell that a purple one was still in the stapler. I decided to leave it in because it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. Then I popped the balloon & tag up on dimensionals. I think it all seems to look very 'manly'.
Materials Used: SU Paper: Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, Whisper White; SU Ink: Night of Navy, Brocade Blue; Cuttlebug Embossing folders: Happy Birthday, Spots & Dots; Other: Crystal Ice Stickles, SU Dimensionals, SU Night of Navy Ribbon, colored staple.
What are your thoughts? I live to read your comments! Thanks for stopping by.

I did make it out with only the two poses. I was proud. They were taken at Portrait Innoventions. I really like there pictures. Unfortunately this time they had a *required* beachy background. um Yeah he is wearing long pants, why would I want a picture of him at the beach in these clothes? I wouldn't no matter how cute he looked! *vent over*

This card is from Lauren aka Lauren32. I have never made on of these criss cross cards, but after looking at all the wonderfully done ones from this swap, I think I may have to jump in and do one.
Last, but by no means least, this card was made by Jocelyn aka Jocelyn1224. The panel with the sentiment flips up and the stripe panel folds down. It is a great idea.
This was Meredith's second card. Once again, I'll link you to her description.
This card was made by my friend Heather, aka JustHeather. The template for this funky fold card can be found here.
This card was from Mindee aka Mindo. Mindee, is there a name for this type of card?
This is Mindee's other card and I am sure that there is a name for it, but I haven't a clue as to what it is...The more I see the less I know! *wink*
Ethan started his last year of preschool on September 8th and is in the Elephant class this year. I find that very funny as I have called him Ethan the Elephant for a long time. (BTW-Maggie is a Monkey and I still can't find a good animal for Seth-he is definitely *not* a snake! Maybe a shark?!?) Ethan has Ms. Christy from last year and Ms. Sheri who is new to us. I *heart* these teachers! They are really into positive reinforcement and Ethan thrives in that kind of environment. I am hoping that he continues to thrive this school year!
This is what happens when Dad puts them to bed-they end up in ours! I will fess up that most nights Ethan goes to sleep in our bed listening to NPR's Star Wars Radio Drama. I just had to include this one because they look so sweet and innocent!
