So, the kids have been on Spring Break no since Mon. and they still have another week to go. What are we going to do for 2 weeks you ask. Well we decided to get annual passes to Disneyland. Why Disneyland. Well for 1 it's the happiest place on Earth. 2 For the price of a vacation they are about the same, and now we can go almost anytime we want. 3 Disney has this deal now that for your birthday you get to go free!!! Well that sounds good but that means we would still have to shell out $200 per birthday just so we could go as a family. So $800 later we would be thinking we should have bought the passes. So needless to say yesterday we shelled out $1135 for 4 passes. We had to end up getting the Deluxe pass because the other 2 CA passes suck. You can't go at all during the summer and 2 of our 4 birthdays were blocked. Hello. So now on our birthdays we get a $65 gift card to be used that day. No problem, we could do that. So who else wants to join us at Disneyland.

played today

While waiting for the laundry to do it's thing I finished a LO of J's b-day in 2003. I also changed the music and background to my blog. I'm already missing the Celtic music, but I don't want to grow tired of it. Here's My Lo of J.

Did a page yesterday

The laundry just stopped so I'll be brief ;-) I did a couple of pages from our vacation in 2003. I also found some pictures from June that I had overlooked. So here you go Us in 2003:
I used another kit from DownToDetails. It's of us on the Hoover Dam. Wish I took a better pic of it but if you click on it it will be bigger for you. I was so glad I had missed these pics earlier, because now I LOVE how the LO turned out. CateroryStories has a contest right now for using the word Precious. What a great opportunity for me to express my love for my kidos. I also used a sketch from ScrapbookDeals4U.

Time to breath

Ahhh, I'm been crazy busy at the school with our Pirate dances. So much fun for all but I had to deal with so many people who didn't want to pay. I know times are hard but $3 for everybody isn't bad at all. We had whole families come when it was just for Mom and her son(s) or for Dad and his daughter(s). Maybe next year we'll just fo a FAMILY dance. We already picked the theme of a Mascarade Ball so it would be a lot of fun for the whole family.

As you can see I changed my background and changed the music. I don't know what it is about Celtic music it must be the beat but it got my mojo going. I did 3 pages and a card this weekend. I'll post a few of my POTD's I haven't forgoten about them I just haven't had time to post them.
Here are my 2 of my layouts and the card:
LO done using a sketch from CreativeScrappers and a kit from DownToDetails
The card is used from the scraps from the LO. I also added Glossy Accents to the letters and hearts. Here we are in the Hoover Dam. I'm so far behind This was from Aug. 2003. Yikes!!
