Disneyland with the Harris Family! 3/24/09

Kayley and I had a fun time meeting up with Cyndi and her family. Cyndi and I met at SMILES at HDC. We started out at CA Adventure and then ended the day at Disneyland.
After playing in the water stuff in the Bug's Land.

She was finally old enough to drive the bumper cars by herself!

Seeing "GREASE" in Hollywood! 3/22/2009

We were able to get tickets to see "Grease" last Sunday down in Hollywood. Chuck and I had a fun "date" day! I was originally going to take Kayley since we only had 2 tickets, but I was given a head's up that it was a little more adult than we thought it would be. Kayley had fun staying with her cousins and Aunt Wendi for the day/night. Here I am driving on the 101 through downtown LA. What a FUN experience!!

LA traffic! Even on Sunday afternoon it was crazy!The Pantages Theater on Hollywood Blvd. The group standing under the sign FINALLY moved, so I could get my pic under the sign. Taylor Hicks did a great job! They added some jokes/lines in about American Idol. He also sang his latest single at the end of the show.
One last shot of the theater on our way back to the car!

March's Stamp Class Projects

Here are the two projects we did for March's Stamp Class. I'm just loving this Scallop Box Die from SU! I wanted to make something for Easter and I thought this would be prefect. We used the Large Oval Punch to punch the oval in the box front. I then covered the opening with some acetate. We used the GOOD EGG set. The oval the chick is on is from the Oval Die. We used GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE Designer Paper.

Another great set that can be used for many occasions is the "THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS" set. We embossed the tree in white and then layered the Delicate Dots DP (Sale-A-Bration 2009 reward) and Bashful Blue cardstock. The ribbon is another SAB reward from this year. HURRY SALE-A-BRATION ends MARCH 31, 2009! I love the layout of this card - you can add any saying to it! I'm going to make a bunch of these up to have ready for anything!

Scottsdale Getaway -

Last weekend, Kayley and I made a quick trip to Scottsdale. My Godparents from Milwaukee were in town visiting my parents, so we jumped at the chance to see them. Who knows when we'll get to Milwaukee again.

It was a quick trip, but we had fun seeing them and my family. Kayley loved staying at my sister's house. We usually stay with my parents, but this time she got to campout with her cousins.

Saturday afternoon we took a hike in McDowell Mountain Ranch in North Scottsdale. It was a little warm, but it was a beautiful hike. I took lots of pictures. The AZ desert is so beautiful compared to the one I live in.

The group pic is my sister, Jennifer, "Maude" Gail, and me!

The view of Scottsdale was gorgeous!

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world.
Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
