Is it Christmas??????????

Close To My Heart is having a deal-of-the day for every day in June. I ordered 2 different goodie boxes this week. The 1st box arrived and I was mildly excited. What you gonna get? Well, I was pretty happy with the contents-it contained clear ribbon slides, Abundance Level 2 paper pack, Life Delights Memory showcase, page protectors(9"x 9"), Dimensional Elements Numbers, Stamp set, Ribbon, and more........

After opening the first box, I became extremely excited to get the next one. The one day of anticipation was about to kill me. IT'S HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trying to cut open a box when your excited is not easy. What's in it??

I can see stamp sets and ribbon, but what at the bottom?

I hope there are no bugs because I'm going in......

The final result........Stamp Sets, Ribbon, Paper, Accessories. I couldn't be happier-just wrap it up and slap a bow on it-IT'S CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!

Summertime Rock!!!!

We have been playing Guitar Hero quite a bit. We have fun and laughs, but it is a lot easier to sit and watch the pro while he stands.

Standing will not only generate the full rockstar effect, but will increase your accuracy.

Look at that score and meter reading.

Sweet success.

ICE SKATING............

On Tuesday, my brothers and I went ice skating. Well, I just watched. It was 2 hours of wintery bliss. We had so much fun! Chad drove to a new ice rink(new to me). I was able to get lots of pictures and laughs. I haven't had that much fun in quite a long time. The boys had a blast skating around and around and they even enjoyed trying to skate backwards. After 1 hour you can see the red coldness on my feet and after 2 hours you can really see it on Chad's arms. The cold wasn't too unbearable until the
ice had to be cleaned. After that there was a very uncomfortable chill in the air. I have never been more thrilled to walk into the thick, hot wall of the 100+ degree sun in all my life. My words of advice are simple--
Wear long sleeves and don't forget your socks!!!!!!!!!!!!

In my family, we are always thinking of fun activities to pass the time. On this particular day it was decided that Sumo Wrestling might be a fun activity. My 2 brothers wanted to wrestle and a padded sumo suit gets the job done. The whole thing is funny.

Here are my brothers suiting up!!

What is wrestling without the arena.


It was definitely some pretty good laughs.
