wow it has been a while

well I guess I will just babble about our weekend, my job and stuff. I have been working at the scrapbooking store for about a month now and can I just say it is awesome. I love it. I had my own idea for a class last week we are going to see if it works out or if anyone signs up. I can't post it until the class is over sorry. Then I got a vera bradley purse on ebay for 30.00 can' t beat that. It hasn't arrived yet but it leaves a joy in coming home everyday...looking for the package. it should be here this week. Can't wait. I really wasn't a fan of them until the new patterns came out this year.. Chelsea green and java are my fav...if I can get them for thirty bucks I could have one of each. yippeee. Then this past saturday I worked at the scrap store...and we were totally dead. Bad for the store, but great for my wedding album...i am all the way up through the ceremony...on to the reception and then I have about 5 pages in the honeymoon and the I will be done. I will have reached my goal of finishing before our one month anniversary. Then Saturday night we watched Memoirs of a Geisha...great story...good movie but really long. didn't seem long though. if you want a historical is wonderful. Then sunday we went to church, went out to lunch at El Camino with Gretchen, Luke, Jen and Darin. it was wonderful. We also had a single guitar lead worship on sunday morning and it was a refreshing change. Then Sunday night we had a "guess who's coming to dinner" great fun...the funny part though is to my understanding it was suppose to be people we didn't know. But it turned out to be two girls that we went to their house last time, who we knew last time, and then a couple and their two kids. It was a lot of fun. We chatted and ate dinner. I just love hosting people at my house. I am in the process of planning a party here at our house for our friends this August. can't wait. I am planning a theme and stuff. It will be alot of fun. Just don't know all the details yet. I had planned on posting some of my wedding pages for you to see, Mom...but blogger won't let me post a picture. sorry...I will try tomorrow. I think i am done babbling for now...have a great day.

Hi my name is Macy. My mom couldn't think of anything to talk about today...because she is really mad at me. We were sitting outside and my mom was reading a book, see I got a little bored and no one was paying attention to me, so I decided to try and get there attention. It all started out innocently......I dug a little hole in the backyard....ok it was my mom's flower bed it wasn't just one it was two or three.
My mom got really mad...but she filled it back in and we played in the backyard for a while and we went inside. Mom was still reading her book and still wasn't watching me so I foudn one of her new winter gloves she got on clearance at the end of the season and it was really soft and quite tasty...yum, yum....THen we got to go on this really long was so much fun.
I ran up the stairs around the dining room table, into the livingroom around the coffee table, my mom followed franticly screaming at me to drop something...i think she wanted the new glove...but I was having way too much fun to drop it. then I smelled something...I was done for she had a treat. I love how I get rewarded for dropping something that I wasn't suppose to have in the first place. Plus I got to run around the house. this life is great. THe next part though isn't so fun...
see my mom was scrapbooking in the living room and organizing some of her stuff...well she left a colored pencil on the coffee table while she was putting stuff was so intriging....i just wanted to know what it was...taste it, smell it, why not eat the whole thing...the shavings in my mom's hand was what she found on the floor...this might have went too far...the carpet i think was messed up...because my mom started yelling at me about going to the pound...what is that? I don't know but she was mad and whereever the pound is it doesn't sound like fun...she said I might die there. eeeeekkkkkkssss!!!! They gotta love me though...look I am so darn cute.

end of the year. NO MORE SCHOOL....

Ok so the last day of school we went to the track and had our version of the greek olympics with part of the GMS 6th grade class. I say our version because we had clothes on and noone died when they lost. Good thing...It is job security. Her are a few pictures of the day.

The teacher relay team was the best...three track coaches and the principal...aka club tennis coach...all in shape people...they kicked butt. miles ahead of the kids.

Also I have to brag about my teams dominance in the arm wrestling...we were 5-0 in both boys and GIRLS....McKenzie you rule.

This team was great to work with this year...whatever happens next year. I don't think I could dream of better people to work with. Thanks for a great year.

The past few weeks have been incredibly busy..Memorial weekend flew by dispite the heat...SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER....yipppeeeee.....i have started my new summer job and teh kids are great. a challenge but no different than any other group of kids.

There are some good ones. I will get them posted I promise. I also scrapbooked all day on Thursday...mainly to finish morgan's graduation gift but also just because it is fun. I got to organize and get things together to take to the store with me the next night it was great. Finished about three pages of Macy and two for the wedding. I am working on those too...the store has a scanner so I can scan them to a disk and then post is going to be great.

I need it for the mother perspective. on our mother daughter page and also I the thumbs up you remember how that picture was taken? or why you are all thumbs uping and have exploding smiles. Email me your thoughts.

Macy got to enjoy water for the first time on Memorial weekend...she wasnt' so sure of the waves at first, but with a few treats she was bounding through the water and playing fetch with bailey. we were a little worried she wouldn't listen very well...but all in all she did a great job. THis one is so cute of chase and JW...had to include it.
