Does anybody want a beagle?

Well, the puppies are 5 weeks old, and they are just about the cutest thing ever. See for yourself.

Miley loves to play with the puppies. As, you can see they love to play with her too.

They drag around pretty much anything they can get their mouths on. Nothing is safe.

This is spot. Caibo carries him around pretty much all the time.

This picture was too cute not to share.

Aye, Aye captain!

I don't know why, but at the grocery store today Caibo decided I was the captain. He kept saying "aye aye captain!" all the way through the store. We was even pretending that the shopping cart was a rocket ship. At one point he got down in the middle of the aisle and swabbed the deck, or at least pretended to. When I made him get up and start going, he stopped and declared, "Oh no! I forget something!" He went and picked this imaginary thing up, and then I asked him what he forget. He replied, "My turtle" Sure enough, he had his arm to his side like he was carrying a turtle. Where does this kid get this stuff?

So, my ignoring people lately has pretty much applied to everybody, even Rachael. In the meantime, she released this gorgeous kit. I am just getting around to working with it. Sorry Rachael. :(

Isn't it awesome? I love it.
Here is what I made with it.

Also, I'm pretty sure I owe Rachael more than one QP. For now, Here is a QP using Rachael's Denim and Lace kit. I hope you enjoy it, and yes there is more to come.

One crazy life

I think a few of you might be beginning to think I fell off the planet or broke my computer or something (especially those of you who are patiently waiting for the freebies I have promised) I have had one crazy life lately. What has been going on? You might ask. Well, here goes....
#1 My boss keeps scheduling me to work (I know that's what happens when you have a job). He has gotten into the habit of giving me 2 days off in a row and working me the rest of the time. Those 2 days are just enough for the rest of my obligations. Have I mentioned that I have a Webelos Den, I have a primary class, I help with center time in kindergarten, I am the room mother..... My poor house!! Please avoid visiting me until I can fix it (unless of course you have already seen it, then feel free)
#2 Does anybody want a Beagle?? We currently have 9 of them. Snoopy had puppies about a month ago. They are currently super cute, I might change my mind next week if they get chewier. Maybe I should invest in some little chew toys before it's too late.
#3 I am officially an army wife. My husband flew out today, and will arrive at boot camp in Missouri tomorrow. Needless to say, I have been spending as much time with him as I can since I will not be seeing him again for about 2 months (sob)
#4 My kids are sick. Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending 4 1/2 hours at the instacare with both of my children. To make matters worse, the family practice that is in charge of the toys and books was closed. There were no toys and no books. Poor Caibo finally laid down on the floor and cried himself to sleep. They called us back 15 minutes later.
#5 My friend's baby had open heart surgery. I watched her other little girl for a couple of days, and spent a lot of time worrying and praying. The baby is doing well, and is home already. (huge sigh of relief)
I think that's the majority of it. Hopefully, you can all forgive me for being a huge blog slacker, and showing up for the blog train 2 days late.
This is the little girl I was watching with some of the puppies. She really liked them. I would post the pictures I took tonight, but I cannot find my camera cord (I told you my house is a mess).

Chase away the winter blues

Yes, the DAC is having another blog train, and we are all so excited. I am especially loving the soft spring colors. I know it is a couple days late, but here is my part. My life has been super crazy (more on that later). For now, you can find the list of blog participants HERE
The next stop on the train is Karyn

And the winner is....

Ok, the 5000th visitor contest failed miserably. I have no idea who really was the winner. I think most people who thought they won actually saw the title of the post. The actual counter was over on the side bar. Sorry for the confusion about that.
Because the contest didn't work so well. I have sent a coupon out to the ladies who left me their e-mail addresses (and I don't want to hear the rest of you whining. It was in the directions). And I am considering playing again for 10,000 or 9999. I can't decide which number is cooler.
In the meantime, my 7th anniversary is coming up on the 14th of this month (yes, I got married on valentines day), and I will be having a huge sale. 70% off everything (because 7% is just no fun), so go check that out.
And yes, I know I promised freebies. I'll put another one up as soon as I fix Windows XP.

5 addictions

I have been tagged. Actually, I am kind of surprised. This is the first time I have been tagged on the blog. Luckily this is an easy tag.
My 5 biggest addictions are
1. digital scrapbooking According to my husband it is a big waste of time, but one day I'll have a really cool and large collection of scrapbooks
2. checking people's status on facebook This is how I know what people are up to.
3. This is my newest addiction http://shedoeshair.blogspot.com Jade is suffering becuase of this new addiction, but I am having tons of fun

4. Mountain Dew, I think the longest I have ever quit for is 6 months. Maybe one day I'll quit for real.
5. Headlines. If I am not working on monday night (or if I can make it home in time) I will be watching Leno so I can watch headlines. After that, I change the channel.
Oh! I almost forgot. I tag Katie, Rachael, Laura, Dalene, and Kristina

Spring cleaning Freebie #1

I know I promised freebies. Here is the first of a few. Today's freebie is a couple of QP's I made using my part of Winter Wonders.

Jade's Journal

Jade brought her January journal home the other day. Evidently the theme for January was "I like". This entry cracked me up. It was interesting to see her picture of the president. I thought it was pretty accurate. I would love to see the pictures the other kids did.

You may have noticed that I am nearing my 5000th visitor. Because I like even numbers a lot. I have been thinking about doing some kind of give away. I finally decided just now that I'm doing it. If you come here and the counter says 5000 leave a comment with your name, email address, and the name of one of my kits. Then I will give you that kit for free.
Having trouble deciding which one? Check out my store HERE
P.S. I did not forget that I promised lots of freebies. I will get them up soon.
