I have been so bad lately about posting/taking pictures of the girls! I know most of you don't really care what we're having for supper, or how much I paid for my last brownie mix :). Sorry that my posts have mostly been along those lines lately. I hope to find a balance, but have just been so busy lately that keeping up with my menu planning and budget is all I've had time for!

This is the girls new trick. Olivia discovered it and just thought it was hilarious. Now it's her favorite way to drink :)
My favorite cousin, Shannon ;) sent me this HUGE package last week of all of her scrapbooking stuff!!! It was like Christmas all over again!!! We had just walked in the house on Friday evening when Brad said, "Oh, I almost forgot. Were you expecting a package from Shannon? I went to get our mail today and you had a huge package from her." I didn't have a clue what he was talking about, and definitely wasn't expecting anything like this! She had been doing some early Spring cleaning, realized she hadn't touched her scrapbooking stuff for almost 5 years, and thought I would put it to good use! Well, she was right... I started making cards the next day :). I was absolutely floored at what all she sent! I hope she never realizes the small fortune she gave away :). A set of Creative Memories felt tip pens, 2 albums, a pack of new pages and page protectors, TONS of paper, stickers, idea books, you name it! Thank you, Shannon!!!

Olivia's new favorite book is "drop" - Raindrop Plop. She wants us to read this book to her all day, every day. She has it practically memorized, and it is so sweet for her to read it with me. Here they are reading it for their bedtime story. They're putting up the umbrella :)

Cute pics; I've been meaning to write to thank you for the very cute pic at Christmas. It can replace the 1-2+ year old ones on our fridge; Raindrop Plop is also a Samuel favorite (and Mom's too).
