M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!
Hot Dog! Hot Dog!
Hot Diggity Dog!
It's Dax's Day
Whatcha Waiting For?
Get Up, Stretch Out, Come Join the Fun!
Hot Dog, Hot Dog, Hot Diggity Dog!
Dax had a blast with some of his classmates at his birthday party. Well many of you that have followed my blog will know that I just love a good party! Kid's parties that is! The last 5 years have been so much fun...but I think I am done! I have had for Dax a John Deere tractor party, a sock monkey party, a frog party (with real live frogs), a robot party, and now a Mickey party. So my deed is done and I am retiring! Though we will have some movie parties and sleepovers I'm done with the big parties! I am happy to be hanging up this hat! Can you hear it in my voice? Well, they just tire me out! I am the one that cleans the whole house, gets the yard all ready; mowing, weed-eating, planting flowers, pressure washing and whatever else. I do all the cooking, planning, I guess what I am saying is my husband is a very lucky man.
Look at this cute picture of all the kids, they ranged in all ages from 8th grade all the way down to pre-school. Dax really enjoyed his party!
This is his best buddy- Maddox. All I ever hear about is Maddox this and Maddox that. I hope they continue to be friends, he seems to be a great kid!
Love this sweet picture of my little man! I hope you enjoy my pictures and I have already printed them (which is a rare-occurance) and hope to scrap them in the near future! Let me just say...good luck with that Wendy!

Mother's Day

This Mother's Day will be a little sad for my mother. She lost her mother just this past month. So when I knew that I would be teaching a Mother's Day class at TM I just knew it needed to be special. I don't usually keep the layouts that I make, because they are property of TM, but this one is a little special to me, so I just may have to purchase it or re-create it for myself. I can see pictures of my mother and grandmother on this layout! I hope you enjoy. Believe it or not I actually have 4 classes completely FULL. How exciting is that? When I began teaching this class almost 4 yrs ago I had about 2 classes and they were somewhat full each month, but this scrapbooking class has grown so much and with this I have made such wonderful friendships, and several ladies that I could call my friend, my mom, my grandmother...these ladies are all so special to me! Of course, don't forget our special dad's, we will be having a Father's Day class in June and then of course a summer layout in July. Until then, HAPPY SCRAPPING!

My Nonie

Today we laid to rest my grandmother, Nonie. It was a very emotional day for so many. I could say so much about my grandmother, but then I would have to write a book. I will say that I have wonderful memories. I spent every Friday night with her as a child watching, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Dallas and Falcon Crest. Those were the days. We played games, she and my grandfather loved playing games with me, teaching me how to play black jack and gin rummy to name a few. She also taught me things like manners, and she tried to teach me the Southern ways of life, like drinking coffee...well that didn't work out as she had planned. These are just a few fun memories I will keep of her, but there are so many more, that I will in time scrapbook and journal to share with my children. May God Bless her and take care of her in Heaven. May she watch down over my family and keep us all safe until we meet her again! Love you Nonie!
