I've been scrapbooking

here are a few pages I've done today. I have been going back and forth between two cyber crops and most of them were done for the different challenges. I've noticed a couple things, I'm on a school picture roll and it seems that I'm embellishment challenged! I'll be scrapbooking again tomorrow so hopefully I'll move a little out of this box I've gotten myself into.

No school?!?!

Really?? I thought they were kidding!! School is closed today due to the cold....umm last time I checked school was held indoors! I guess it's for the kids having to wait for a bus.....hummm seems odd to me but hey I love having my kids home so OK with me. Only they've been out since Friday!! They got Monday for MLK day and tacked on 2 days of inservice days so why are we even bothering to go tomorrow?

My baby is 8!!!

WOW!! time sure does fly. At 2:22 pm Matty was officially 8 years old. It's our family tradition that the birthday person gets to pick what we do for the day...the Brauer King (or Queen in my case!) so today started off around 11:30 with lunch at Jimmy Johns (yummm!!) then we went to the movies to see the new Veggie Tales movie The Pirates who don't do anything followed by a trip to Toys-R-Us to spend birthday $$.....he got a pirates of the carribean Krakken play set, some Star Wars figures, a bionicle and a smaller bionicle. Then after a short break to rest at home we headed out to El Toro for a nice Mexican dinner.
This is Matty right after he said....."my life is good" I thought that was a great end to a great day!

it's been so long since I've done any realy scrapbooking! Over Christmas break the boys and Brian helped me get my scrap stuff sorted and organized. I can see my table again!! So I spent a couple days creating!! This is a scraplift from my friend Jennifer. This is my current favorite lo!!

The boys made a dragon cake for a cake bake off in scouts. They had such a great time making it. Here are a couple pictures.
