great weekend

This weekend was filled with lots of laughing, lots of talking and staying up way too late. What a blast! Jenny made it in late Thursday night and we talked every minute inbetween till her flight on Monday afternoon. we went to dinner, we played with the kids, we went to wal-mart – TWICE, we cooked, we stripped wallpaper, we shopped, we took naps, we drank a ton of coffee and we watched lots of TV. It was so much fun. Come back soon Jenny!

FYI – Annie just brought me a tape measure and said “What’s dis?” so i showed her how to measure herself. She is exactly 36 inches tall.

here are a few pics from the weekend.

having a great few days

yesterday i got to talk to my frined Lisa in Illinois for a long time – so good to hear her voice.
and another friend and her kids came over for a nice little playdate with coffee and chit chat

craig brought me a sweet little coffee cup and some chocolate from starbucks – the perfect gift. 2 out 5 kids liked my cake i made for them for Valentine’s but Craig loved it. he said it looked like it was out of a magazine. . . ahhh.

i got some more scrapbooking done again last night. i am on a roll this week! last night i had a moment of joy realizing i could still create pages that were all my idea (not copying someone else’s) and like what i created. that felt really good.

then this morning my friend lynette called and we talked for an hour! it was so nice to catch up.

And tonight my friend Jenny is coming all the way from chicago with no kids to stay for a four day weekend! her husband is so thoughtful to give her the plane ticket for Christmas. Also the perfect gift. (there are many many perfect gifts) we have no big plans other than talking way too much. She may have to help strip wallpaper but she doesn’t know that yet. ha ha

it’s just a happy house right now.

iPod love

It’s here! It’s finally here! Lauren used the birthday money she received and a little saved allowance to buy an iPod nano. It’s all hers. She had it engraved Property of Lauren Duerksen.
Her playlist:
Hannah Montana
Disney Mania
U2 – Atomic Bomb

It’s only the beginning. . .
