I am a list maker.

So, I've been all, "I should blog" for weeks now. But I just can't seem to find time/opportunity/motivation.

I decided making a list would be a good idea (thanks Valli). So,

  • Our dog ate my SD card from my camera and with that, about half the photos of Nathan's life. I now have a mostly empty baby book and a dog looking for a new home. (At least scrapbooking 2010 won't take me much time...)

  • We have found the dog a new home. He will hopefully be moving in with his new family this weekend.

  • Perhaps we are not dog people. I suppose we must be cat people then?

  • Nathan will turn ONE in less than a week.

  • His first birthday celebration will be monster themed. It required purchasing a new Cricut cartridge and stamp set.

  • I finally bought a new camera to replace our Canon Rebel that was stolen in September out of our van. I used my Christmas & birthday money because I am tired of saving for a new Rebel and decided to buy something less expensive.

  • The girls have been busy. They went to cheer camp a couple weeks ago. Both girls were selected to have some artwork featured in the school district's art show. Yay!

  • I bought some adorable clothes for my sweeties to wear for Easter. I spent less than $25. Have I mentioned how much I love consignment shopping?

  • Nathan is starting to say "words". We have now deciphered "Laura", "Lindsay", "dog" & "Daddy", though they sound nothing like the actual words.

  • We STILL have quite a bit of work do finish in our house addition (painting doors, baseboards, casings, railings, some casings that still need to be cut, nailed, etc., curtains/window treatments hung, decorating)

  • We are planning to put a patio in our courtyard this spring. We will be replacing our driveway at the same time. (See photo below - how trashy are we?!) We are excited to get this project underway so that we can enjoy our courtyard this summer!

  • This post is really boring. Sorry.

Mini Monsters? I totally have that cartridge and LOVE it! My card for Nathan is already in it's envelope or I would redo it and make is match his monster theme! DoH!

I am still so sad for you about the SD card. *tears* I think of that every couple days and get sad all over again.

Love the list and all the updates! Definitely not boring at all! I love to hear what's going on up in your neck of the woods. :-) And the Easter clothes are way cute.

Happy birthday, Nathan!

By the way, I am attempting to crochet a hat for him but I have run into problems. My stitch counts aren't matching up, and I am going to get together with a friend so she can help me out. Hopefully I will get it done before summer!

Great finds on the Easter clothes!

I liked Laura and Lindsay's art work, although I expect only greatness in art with the mother that they have.

I like the courtyard picture. Looks like a tornado hit a trailer park. LOL Happy Birthday Nathan!

personalmente penso che prima di prendere un cane in casa, bisognerebbe pensarci bene prima.
Dare via un cane ad un'altra famiglia, per me è come dare il proprio figlio ad altri.
In questa foto, gli occhi del cane trasmettono tutta la sua tristezza.
Amo molto gli animali e tutto ciò che scrivi infonde solo una grande amarezza per come si sia così leggeri nel prendere e poi lasciare ad altri animali presi da noi.
Buona giornata.
