In the spirit of Valentine's Day

OK so this is not a frilly, girly Layout with reds and pinks on it. But I thought it was a good start. This picture is of Ezzy and I almost three years ago. This was when we were a lot thinner. I guess we are comfortable right now.
I have been checking out Elsie's blog http://elsieflannigan.blogspot.com/ and man I think I might go broke. Her line of products with KI Memories is just too yummy. I have to have them all.

Sisters?

Can you believe that these two are mother and daughter. This is my cousin Suzie and her daughter Reneece ( Named after me). They look and act more like sisters than mother and daughter.
I only hope that Niah and I will have that like of relationship as we grow older.
I am so loving these Fancy Pants Papers. I will surely have to get some more for a project I am working on for my other cousin.

Go Fly A Kite...

I forgot to tell you.
Ezzy built a kite from scratch. No template or anything. Just got up one day and decided that he would build a Kite. Says he use to make them all the time when he was a kid in Jamaica. I must admit, I was and still am impressed. I was sceptical that he could do it but as usual he proved me wrong. Needless to say, the kids had fun with it. We haven't had much windy days so we haven't flown it much but the excitement from the first time he put it in the air is still there.

My Weekend

Weekend was great. Very calm. I am trying my best to relax and take it easy.
I didn't go out with the girls at all. I know that is amazing. (I am saving my strength for Vages). Yes you read it correctly. The girls and I are headed to Vegas in April. Man I can't wait. This will be the longest I have been away from home since I had the kids. I pray that I can handle it. Everytime I think about leaving the kids for Five days I want to change my mind. But Ezzy tells me I have to let go.
Ran my errands on Saturday and took it easy on Sunday. Did a lot of cleaning. My house is really looking better now that I have a little more time.
Here is a Layout I did of my three favorite people. (Nayshawn, Ali and Niah). They are just too cute.

Understanding Niah...

I love this Layout. It represents who Niah is right now. Trying to find herself in this world. Trying to understand why things can't always go her way. She is very stronge-minded and surely knows what she wants. I love this about her.
The last couple of days have been so hectic.
Work is really a mad house. I think I am slowly getting a handle on this new position. My year-end processes are almost over and then I can breath again. I have been making sure to take my vitamins so as not to get sick. I really don't need that right now.
Kids have been good. Nayshawn got a 100% on his spelling test last week. This is really good because we are having some trouble with spelling right now. Niah knows almost all of her letter sounds. I am trying to get her ready for Kindergarden next year.
I had to take a break from school because things where getting a little too crazy but I think I will pick it back up once things get back to normal. I am a little bummed about that because I was half way there but nothing happens before it's time.
Have a great weekend everyone.

The land of Make believe..

So I was in Michael's yesturday and after I promised myself I would not get anything else for the kids that they didn't need. I saw a lonely box of dress-up

clothes for only $8. I sat there in the store and tried to talk myself out of buying it for a good 5 minutes. People were walking by looking at me like I was crazy. After all of that I just couldn't resist. I bought it for Niah and of course she loved it.

After all isn't that what being a kid all about. Having fun being the princess or the fairy or both. Shoot, sometimes I still pretend. I pretend to be sipping Martini's on my own private island.

I took down the tree today too. Now things are really back to normal. I miss the lights though.

Started the New Year in a Rut...

I don't know, but I just feel out of it these last couple of days. Really not sure what it is but I don't like it and I am not sure how to get out of it.

Haven't been able to scrap in a while because of work and school and everything else that is going on in my life right now. I really miss it. I have to start making room in my schedule for it again.

Kids go back to school next week. I know they are not happy about that. They have been having so much fun in winter camp.

Also, got an email yesturday from my cousin stationed in Iraq. His team was bombed a couple of nights ago while out on a misssion. He is OK but one of the guys on his team suffered a stage 3 concusion. He can't remember anything. Please keep them and all the young people overseas in your prayers as I will be doing.
