And today...the pool starts to go up! :) Bring on summertime!
Yesterday I dyed Summer's hair...she has hit the age when she wants to change things about herself. I personally don't think she needs to change a thing...but we all remember how it is to be 12...so I let her. I think it looks great. Of course I love her blonde hair...but like she is always telling me...change is good mom ;) Smart girl :)
Finished product...isn't she cute :)

Zoe was the first to find her Easter Basket...she was so quick...I don't think she stopped running the whole time!
On the creative side of life....I've just finished making 10 Salad Recipe Cards for a swap with my scrapbooking group....
and Harley made this very cute Easter Bunny Jar :)
Hope you all had a Hoppy Easter!

I pick them up at 9:00 to come back to Courtenay for a big scavenger hunt over at Tami & Todd's place....which is going to be sooooo fun...I'll post pictures later!
Then they are going back to their dad's to go see all their family in Coombs for Easter dinner! lucky ducks! ;)
Oh and I wanted to share Harley's last canvas painting from his art class. It's a bridge over water...with all the tree's behind and lilly pads in the water! I love his work! :)
Happy Easter everyone! Blog yah later!

This first one was a challenge that Gloria posted on my scrappy site....she does it twice a month...post's a sketch and we following along :) I'm also submitting this one to Inkadoo....if you send in a card or something you created using their stamp you get a free stamp back in the mail. Can't go wrong there?? loland the second one I created for Inkadoo ;)
Well that's it for the creativeness today....now...need to take kids to their dad's....then come home, run, shower, make something yummy for potluck tonight...then off to Dodgeball wrap up party ;)
Over and out (as my good friend Paola says)

First off...you need to visit my friend Vanessa's blog. I love how she creates...when I grow up I'll create like V! ;) She's such a sweety....I'm lucky to have her in my life!..she is currently doing a RAK...so check her out:
Around my house...well both Summer & Zoe woke up in the night to barf. I'm SO GLAD they are old enough to know to go to the toilet to barf and not in their bed's anymore! :) Harley had the 12/24 hour flu over the weekend with his dad....so I guess it's my turn :( They are both staying home from school...which puts an end to Summer's perfect attendance....I tried to push her to go cause I'm competitive like that...but then quickly realized that's not such a good thing to do! lol
Me...well didn't get to run yesterday...so I am doing it today! The sun is out....and I'll look just fabtabulous hurling myself down the road...I'm sure of it! ;) (enter sarcastic grin) I'd sure like to find my creative mojo...it's taken a vacation....it will come back....I"m sure of that too ;)
Some other stuff is on the horizon...but can't share just yet....yes this is the line in my post that gets you to come back and check me out again ;)

The second half of the week has been better than the first! lol....no more sick kids....
I actually took them to Nanaimo again to see their cousin's one more time before they go home to San Diego. We sure miss them....only get to see them 2x a year :( But when we do the kids really enjoy each other!
Today...like I said the sun is out. The kids go with their dad this weekend...so me...well tonight probably a couple drinks with the girls....then some cleaning around the house weekend! Maybe a date or two ;) I wish! lol
I have decided to have a different approach to my photo albums. I am going to print off from January 2009 till now and get those caught up. I am tired of not scrapping current stuff....so I'll do that and then catch up back photo's. I'm not really that far behind...only 2.5 years so it's "do-able" :)
I'll keep you posted as to the weekend adventures! lol

So on the weekend I went to beer fest in Port Alberni....for a girl that is not supposed to drink beer (gluten) I did pretty good....hurt the next morning and I had some cramps I haven't had in a long time...but I held my own :) Not that I will be running out drinking beer everyday!
The kids slept over at their Uncle Rob's sat. night....had a hoot with their cousin's....I picked them back up Sunday.
All and all a good weekend...
So far this week:
Zoe got a mysterious rash on her face...stayed home from school for two days
Harley has an ear infection....stayed home from school today
Summer is healthy
Me...well that is debatable.... ;)
Last Dodge ball game tonight....oh and the kids are going with their dad for dinner tonight...so before Dodge ball I'll go out for dinner with Tamara...girls treat :)
Blog ya later ;)
