This is my latest project. It is an 8x8 accordion album. This one is for Bridget. I'm starting on Becca's next. Enjoy!

Silly Becca

This kid is so funny. She is my clown. When Bridget plays dress up, it is always princess dresses, crowns, and fancy slippers. Not Becca. She has on a dance leotard, her bike helmet, sunglasses (that pop open), garden gloves, and carrying her garden tool. She cracks me up!

The other photo is Becca in her new big girl bed. She kept getting out of the toddler bed and told me that she couldn't sleep in it because it was too small. She wanted to be able to roll around in it and she couldn't. I guess she wasn't kidding. Here she is upside down, feet propped up on her pillow. (And she is so coordinated with her Dora sheets, Diego pj's, and Dora socks.) I don't think I'm ever that comfy in my bed.

A moment of insanity

Do you ever have these moments when a certain thing takes over all other thoughts? Even when it is something not important to anything at all.

Last night we went out to dinner. After dinner, Schaun wanted to kill some time and drive around (even though gas is an outrageous $3.39 a gallon!). We drove thru downtown, the Plaza and then by Union Station. There was a wedding party taking pics outside Union Station and in front of the fountain there. I made a comment about how great those photos would be. Schaun joked that we could go put our wedding clothes on and take new photos. Then he said he would need a larger tux. I agreed that I would need my dress altered. And then.....

I had this moment---I could not remember where my dress was. I felt panic.

Why??? I don't need it. I'm not going to wear it.

I know it is not at my house. Schaun assured me it was at my mom's . I cannot remember taking it there. I called her to reassure me, but she didn't answer.

The thought that I had lost my dress in a move was making me sick. The last place I remember seeing it was 6 years ago when we lived in Olathe. Schaun knows me so well and he could tell that it was going to drive me nuts. He just started to drive toward my mom's house (even though we has stopped by there before dinner, lol) .

I went in and my mom was thinking something was wrong since we had just been there. I told her I needed to know if my wedding dress was in the house. She looked at me like I had three heads and told me it was. Whew! Instant relief!

A visit with my gramma

We went to visit my Gramma this morning. It was me, my mom, Bridget and Becca. We took her some Mother's Day cards, and little teddy bear and some flowers. They have this nice area in the center of the facility (the building is circle shaped) with a paved walkway. They have a nice gazebo and pretty flowers around. We spent the morning out there before it started to get too hot.
