my younger one

A picture i took off her last week. I love her kind of cranky face. It is not always smiles, right?
 Well i started working on this Christmas present for her... So don't show her. I'll post more the more i do. I wish i would have taken more pictures to show the progress. So happy with this.

testing, testing 1 2 3

Trying this out. I'm posting from my phone a card I made the other week. It has some components from a Stampin Up card kit (On Its Way Simply Sent) and some of my own stuff. CAS and I personally like it.

Another one!!

Crazy two cards right?! This one is using MME papers and Lizzie Anne Designs stamps! I'm really happy with how it turned out. I used a color challenge from the Cure for the Monday Blues challenge #26. Crafting makes me happy. I need to keep on doing it! Thanks for stopping by!

CAS Birthday Card

I got in my craft room yesterday! I made two birthday cards. Here is the first that I used a sketch from Clean & Simple blog challenge 302. I used an sticker for my sentiment and inked up the bottom with colorbox cat eye inks. TFL!

5K Electric Run

We had a super fun night in Sacramento this past weekend doing the Electric Run. We had black light responsive paint on the girls faces and lights of glow in the dark stuff. Good family memories in the making.

The California King Snake

 April 16th, we drove home after getting a slurpee with the girls and in our driveway was this:

I helped Steve and we got it into the plastic tub.

 We went for a walk and released the snake in a safer place. Hopefully he is a happy snake! It sure made for a happy dad the day after tax season is over. This was his first wild California King Snake to catch.

Camping out in the NEW minivan

Short version: Steve's car died during tax season. So super quickly, we bought a minivan! The day or two after getting it, we threw down a sleeping bag inside, the girls put on their jammies and grabbed pillows and stuffed animals. The hung out inside of there for a couple hours! I brought them a snack in the muffin tin right in the middle. They had so much fun!

Long version: Steve drove home one day and his car would no longer accelerate over 50. That weekend we went out to test drive a Honda and a Toyota minivan. We decided on the Honda and purchased it. Two weeks later in the mail we received the title to find out that the mileage was not accurate. The next day we drove back, returned the minivan for the full amount drove another 40 minutes away and purchased another minivan. It was a little bit of a hassle, but it was like a free two week rental and we received and even better van with more upgrades, hello navi! We also had some wonderful friends who helped us out in watching our kids so that we didn't have to haul them around with all the chaos.
