Dreams do come true!

Some of you are going to think I am going crazy.....others of you already knew that, but......

We all have dreams, right? some BIG some small.....but nonetheless, we dream...

"Someday I am gonna _________________!"

Well I got to live out one of my dreams recently! Maybe not one of my biggest dreams, but it does rank right up there, in fact, this "dream" has been at the top of my Life List.

Yep, that's me!!! I had a lot of fun playing "The Cat in the Hat" at the Ice Cream Social benefiting Kate's Kart. Although it was almost 90 degrees, that didn't stop me from putting on the fleece outfit and rubber mask!
I do have to admit that I scared a few little kids, but I gave out a lot of hugs and high fives too!

In fact, it was so much fun, I think when I retire we will become Florida Snow Birds and I can get a side job at Disney! (ok, I better run, I know the men in the white suits will be here soon to take me away!)

Do you want CHEESE with that wine?

Last weekend we had a nice family getaway weekend!

Max and I and Shannon and Jaden went to Indy for the weekend. We met up with Shane Saturday morning and headed for Vintage Indiana Wine Festival in downtown Indy. It was a lot of fun! Shane, Max and I enjoyed sampling some of Indiana's finest wines.....Shannon was our "designated driver" by default!

The weather was PERFECT......we were able to just kick back and relax.

I just have to show you what happens when I put my camera down:

Jaden became the photographer...."CHEESE papa.....CHEESE shane-o......CHEESE gramma j........CHEESE maw!" and she knew how to use the camera....hmmmmm...wonder why???? hehe
And did you notice she made sure she got a piece of herself in one of the pictures!
Looks like we have the makings for Jaden's first attempt at doing her own Scrapbook page!
Thanks kids for making this weekend so nice.....mark your calendar for next year!

Real men love to Scrapbook

There are so many things that happen on a daily basis that I think I will blog, but then the day, week, month gets away from me. At this rate I will never get to my 100th post, but I will sure have fun trying!

If you are a regular reader, you know I really like scrapbooking. I fiddle with it a little bit at home in my "apartment". (Max named it this because I have everything i need to survive in one room: computer, tv, scrapbooking set up, and even the kitchen sink...Jaden's little Strawberry Shortcake kitchen!) But I do have to say my favorite part about scrapbooking is getting together with friends and family for a full day of "scrappin". Of course we cant do our scrapbooking if we don't do a little shopping too. Recently mom and I took a 2 hour drive to Plymouth to check out a scrapbook store. To our surprise, dad and max decided to go along for the ride! The owner of this store knows how to make the customers happy:
With comfort like this....leather sofa, foot massagers.....they never knew we were there for 2 hours!

Maybe Lowe's and Home Depot should take a lesson from the scrapbook store owner.....give us ladies a place to get a pedicure, glass of wine, massage and we will be happy to tag along....heck we would probably suggest a weekly trip to the hardware!!
