Happy Birthday Todd!

Well, now I have 2 four-year-olds!!! (only for 2 weeks and then Scott will turn 5). I was babysitting my friend's 3 kids this morning, so we made it into Todd's party!!! We coloured the castle (see previous post - but I'm not allowed to post it again yet because they aren't finished) watched Toy Story 2, ate hotdogs and chips, and had this cake. I made the cake last night after the kids were in bed, but I asked Todd what he wanted his birthday cake to look like... He said, "Well, birthday cakes should be round. And I want the Sheriff to be in the middle of it, with a bunch of Chick Hicks cars going around the sheriff!" Soooo - this is it!!! His Sheriff car was almost too big for the top of the cake, but that's what he wanted, so I washed it up and he got to stick it on! And the Chick Hicks cars are printed from my computer, and I put a couple layers of clear packing tape on them and stuck a straw on the back! The kids each took one of these cars home in their goodie bag.

The kids all got these Sheriff badges while they were watching the movie. So I guess we have kind of mixed in 2 sheriff stories here, but the kids play with all their toys together even if they are from differnt movies!!!

Todd's birthday date

Tomorrow is Todd's birthday, so today he got to go on a date with Grandma and Grandpa. They had waffles for lunch (with jam and ice cream! What a lucky almost 4 year old!). And then he got to open his present which was a very cool hockey net! He LOVES hockey! Then they went to play Jungle Mini Golf, which Todd called "mini hockey!" Makes sense, doesn't it?

Todd and Grandma

He had a great day, and I asked him - as he almost fell asleep tonight at supper - if Grandma and Grandpa tuckered him out... he said no, he tuckered them out! Grandpa agreed!

So, that meant that I got to have a date today with Scotty, which was so much fun! Kids are so easy when you have them one on one!!! We went shopping and found birthday cake supplies, and presents, and we found this... of course, when it came in the box it was unassembled, so Steve and I just had a hoot putting it together... Steve commented that we probably shouldn't apply to do The Amazing Race together, because we have different ideas of how to follow instructions!!!! But, it doesn't matter - look how cool this castle is!!! And the whole idea behind it is that the kids colour it in. I love it! So when some friends come over tomorrow that is what they are going to do!!! I will post the finished product as well!

Club Pages

Here is the layout we did this month with my scrapbook clubs. I am going to put a picture of myself either stamping or scrapbooking on the photo space on the first page. It is always great to get a little me time, or time out from the day-to-day.. whether in retreat, or relaxation form, we all benefit from rest, and activities that help us feel refreshed...

So, what is your activity? Reading, sports, crafting? I'd love to hear how you spend your "Me Time!" The pics on the right hand page show me at the beach in White Rock; playing the piano on my 27th birthday at Fort Langley; and of course.... the results of a pedicure that Leanne treated me to a few days before Elise was born! (notice the tanlines on my feet :)

The main colour is Almost Amethyst, and the accent colours are Certainly Celery, black and vellum. It is a double embossed project, simply meaning that there is heat embossing as well as dry embossing on these pages.

Cars Cars Cars

Can you see his organizational skills? He worked very hard to get these cars just right this morning, and then they all had races in colour groups!

Sympathy Card

I just wanted to share this beautiful card that my friend Sue sent out this week. It is a sympathy card she made for me because my Grandpa died. On the inside it is stamped with, "Whatever happens, God is there to keep you safe within his care." Thanks Sue, it's so beautiful.

We love Leap Frog!

The boys each got "My First Leap Pad" for Christmas along with a plethora of games. So Elise got the hand-me-down Leap Frog Baby and all the games for that. They are creating quite the sound combo right now as the 3 of them play their 3 different "computers" on the couch. I had to share a picture! (Todd's a bit sad because just before this he got kicked out of the theatre where Steve is watching the Superbowl... he was acting out all the plays and it got to be a bit much!!!)
