4 x 4 Book

Here's a 4x4 mini album I made today. These are all digital layouts and I just resized them, printed them, then Mod Podged them to chipboard coasters. So quick and easy. I really need to take some new pics, these are all old ones. The girls' 3rd birthday is in March and so I'm already starting to plan for that. I think it's going to be a butterfly theme, and I've got some cool ideas for table centerpieces. I'll post pics as soon as I get them done. I'm also working on some new digital kit freebies and I'll be posting them soon. =)

Did You Hear About the Storm...

For the first time in almost 3 years, I got to sleep in until 9:00 this morning. That is a HUGE deal for me. I actually woke up by myself...no alarm...no kids making a racket... it was beautiful. But, there would be a price to pay for sleeping in...I should have known better. I opened the door to greet my thoughtful daughters, and there I see them both looking at me with an expression on their faces like, "Ma, I don't know what the hell happened. I just woke up and some force of nature ripped through our room and emptied out every drawer and made a mess everywhere. I tried to stop it, cause I know you'd be mad, but there was nothin' I could do!" I'm starting to think Bill Cosby was right. That's why God makes kids so cute...so you don't kill 'em.

The usual suspects ----->

I even put locks on their dresser drawers so I could avoid this issue, but as it turns out, where there's a will, there's a way. They're geniuses I tell ya.

Two New Quick Pages

I've been in a quick page mood lately so I thought I'd offer up a couple freebies for ya.

In other news, the Knapp household is in full potty training mode, and it ain't pretty. Emily just can't grasp the "pull-up diaper" concept and has to get completely naked before she'll get on the potty. She'll sit there for about a minute, yell for either me or daddy that she's done (she usually hasn't gone), gets up and runs a couple laps around the house naked. She's exhausting to watch. Ashley, on the other hand, will sit on the potty when she damn well feels like it and nobody's gonna tell her different. Right now she's pretty happy just to keep checking in on sissy making sure she hasn't fallen in. I think this is going to take a while.

New Layout

Here's my latest layout. Well, it's a quickpage made by Monique G, but hey, I plopped the picture in there. I'm so far behind on scrapping. I've got a ton of pictures, but just haven't been in the mood. This cold is just sucking the life out of me. Blah, blah, blah, I sound like a broken record...but seriously, how stinkin' cute is that pic? I don't call her "cheeks" for nothin' my friends.
A new freebie will be up soon...check back!

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and happy New Year. Mine was great except for all of us getting sick...yet again. Ashley started the whole thing on Christmas Eve day, and just got progressively worse as the days went on. Emily got the runny nose, but that's about it. Last Friday I got the sore (and I mean sore) throat, followed by congestion in my head and chest, and that wonderful hacking cough. Yesterday the hubby started exactly how I did. Ashley is still just miserable but I think she's getting better. Oh, if anyone knows who came up with the idea for nose spray, please let me know so I can send him a nice fruit basket. That stuff just rocks!! My kitchen and living room looks like a Pharmacy threw up in it. There's Tylenol, Sudafed Severe Cold pills, Vicks, Nyquil, Dimetap, nose spray, cough drops, and lets not forget the 82 boxes of Kleenex everywhere you look.

What did you all get from Santa this year? I must have been pretty good because I got a bitchin'...yes I said bitchin'...new computer with a flat screen monitor. Yep, about peed myself! Life is good.

So here are a few pics from all the Christmas activities. Ashley looks just pitiful. Poor kid. But, all in all I think they had fun and loved all the goodies Santa brought them.

The 4-Wheelers were a big hit!
