The week I turned 30

So I am officially 30. Have been for a week, and yes I do feel older. Earlier this week I noticed I am getting more grey hair, less patience, and tire more easily. It has been a hellish week though so that may have something to do with it.
On tuesday I decided to move the kids bedrooms around. Not just around, up and down levels in our house. My scrapbook room has moved from the fourth lower floor to the top floor. It was a long day of grunting and pain, but it is done now. I think this will work out better in the end. I will post pictures later.
Last weekend I had my very eventfull birthday. A family member went missing for awhile. Then my parents stopped to see me, Kandess was here playing ball in a tournament for the weekend. Family member was found. Brian was horridly sick. Brian and the kids went to the store and bought a cake and some decorations. We all went to watch Kass play ball and before the game even really got going Brian got called out to work. Kass and her friend Shawn helped the kids with the cake and decorations. For supper I took the kids to town, we bought movies and KFC and came home to have supper and veg in our beds watching movies. Guess it is just another day, lol.
I have bought myself numerous bday gifts this week to make up for it though. Brian told me I better stop now though, lol. Darn it!!
Today I am headed to town for groceries and to seek out the new Rock Band II for Hailee for Christmas. I am also going to stop at Toys R Us to buy a train table for Austin if they have one. Then both of the kids large gifts are bought and I can relax.
After school I think we will go to Stettler to plan this months DT kits and visit a few people. We will see how the day goes. I wanted to head for GP to see Michelle and baby this weekend but I think we will have to wait a few more weeks. I need to get some scrappin done before all my deadlines are here.
Have a great day everyone! ;)

So very much to show and tell you!

Ok so school is back in and all I can say is HOORAY!!! Yesterday was Austin's first day so now both the kids are back. So far Hailee loves her new teacher and is quickly getting to know other kids and make new friends. Austin had a major meltdown yesterday but hey, what else seems to be new?! He is going to go anyways! LOL!

Friday I had gone to town with Lisa to do some last minute shopping and we went to Old Navy. They had the cutest Halloween costumes ever so I just had to get one for Austin. Of course it is now filthy because he came home and had to put it on and wear it all night. Oh well he is so cute in it I don't really care.

Last weekend we had the crop and it was so awesome. There is always such a great group of women at our events and I always leave feeling kinda sad that the weekend is over yet so exhausted it needs to be over, lol!
I also got to spend the weekend with Richelle. It has been pretty hard on the two of us living an hour apart when we used to see each other every other day. We had a sleepover for the weekend and I love spending time with her and her family so much. We even got a picture of us together for once.

I even got some scrapping done. I still have to add photos but I think I am going to use these for my calendars for Christmas. I have like 50 some MME kits put together so I thought I better get using them before the new release comes out. I find this seems to be another company I collect rather than use. I am pretty happy with how they turned out though.

So procrastinating here....

Not sure why. I am SOOOO EXCITED!!! Tonight in about 2 1/2 hours I am headed to the store to meet Katie and Richelle to set up for the crop this weekend. Had to rope Richelle into helping me as I begged her for a slumber party, lol! Lisa was unable to find a sitter so I a not staying in a hotel and therefor needed a place to crash. Good thing my Cuz loves me.
I have yet to start packing though. I have my clothes packed, the door prizes packed, clothes for Elliot that are to small for Austin packed, cupcakes made and packed, but I have not packed a single scrapbooking item. I just don't know what I want to take. It has been awhile since I have not worked on a project for the store, or a class or something to that effect. I am just struggling to focus on my own projects. I think maybe I should work on my calendars though. Enough of that.
Today I went to Old Navy and bought Austin his halloween costume. It is so freakin' cute. Or should I say stinkin' cute?! It is a skunk!! On the bum there is a little heart that says lil' stinker. I took pics of him in it already but I will have to upload them on sunday or monday when I get back.
Ok off to try and pack. See you all after the weekend. I am sure I will have tons of stories to share.
