The most AMAZING day....
I had the most amazing day today. I took my niece, Mckenna, to the scrapbook store and we scrapped for most of the afternoon. She is such an amazing child. We had so much fun, and everyone commented on how well behaved and good mannered she was. Her mom sent 15.00 with her to spend today, and kenna spent 12.01. LOL she was so funny buying stuff. I told her she would have to start doing chores for her mom to earn extra money so I could take her again. It was fun. One of those days where I will look back and smile everytime. I loved to see her eyes light up, and see the anticipation building up while she waited so patiently to drive up there. I wish you could have experienced the fun we had today. It was priceless.

I have an addiction..I actually shop more that I scrap. Really..who knew?? lol..
Brandy and Leslie came over yesterday afternoon and went through my scrapbook paper. They left with A LOT! Thanks ladies for helping me get rid of my stash! lol..I have a 12x12 paper rack that stands probably 3 1/2 to 4 feet high. It was full of paper. I had asked leslie Sunday at the river (pictures of that to come soon) if she wanted some paper, cause i was cleaning house! Afterwards, there was maybe 30 sheets of paper that I kept. It feels so good to get rid of stuff just sitting around. I am going through embellishments next. I am also going to get rid of some cheap beads that I bought, when I went through my jewelry making phase. If anyone wants them, email me. They are yours.
have a great tuesday

No more pencils, No more books,
No more teachers dirty looks! is OUT my friends. Hallelujah! (do you know how hard it is to spell that word? Still doesn't look right to me)
One of my students said it so perfectly on Monday. This little girl is going to kindergarten, and is so advanced for her age it is unbelievable. Honestly, she could probably skip kindergarten and be advanced in 1st grade, anyway, she told me "Ms. Wendy, on Wednesday, I am gonna sit around in my panties, on my big fluffy couch and not do anything!" I told her me too! Well, I had to wait until Thursday, cause Wednesday was my last day of school. Praise the lord. I made it.

Two posts in one day!
Here are some pics of the kiddos too. Again, I only have a few of Danny. He has asked me to stop taking so many pictures of him, (quit interupting him is what he actually asked me) and just let him play. do I get pics of my OTHER child? He is my very favorite person, how can I scrap without pictures of my danno? Hmphf...growing up sucks.
Riley was crowned "BEST HUGGER" at her program last week. I wonder why? Here are some pics from her program. (i will have to post more hug pictures later..blogger is being tempermental)

I finally downloaded pics from my camera. I got some really good pics these last few weeks, and decided to share them with you. I would like to introduce my sisters to Fickel. Fickel is my favorite buddy. She puts up with me at scrappin' crops! Almost 12 hours of sitting next to moi! Gotta love her for that!

I am feeding and watering my blog. guys know I can kill silk plants right? lol
I have NO IDEA what to blog about, so I will just ramble.
I had a great mother's day, nothing from my hubby of course(cause I bought my cricut bag) but I got wonderful cards and flowers from the kids (thanks grandma pat!) and two beautiful hanging doileys (have no idea how to spell that word) that I can put pictures in (thanks again pat!). I can't wait to print some pics to put in them.
Riles had her end of the year program last week, and I got some awesome pictures from that.
Danny also had HIS spring program last week, and I got some amazing photos of most of the nieces and nephews from that as well.
This weekend will be busy, because we have a graduation (this is just the beginning..for the next TWELVE years, I have a niece or nephew graduating!...sometimes there will be SEVERAL graduating gotta include those great nieces and nephews!). Then my sister, Michelle, and her hubby jason are having a poker party..gonna be SOOOOOOOOO fun!

I even added some new friends to my fickel beware! I have you on speed dial sister! lol..can't wait to scrap again. Isn't awesome when you can add people to your list of friends? I know I am weird, annoying, and moody, but honestly, I don't make friends that easy, so this moment was special.

A felt doll kit from ! These are such NEAT felt kits! I stumbled upon these kits when danny was about 2. I found them at a craft show in Nebraska City, and every year for about 3 years, I would buy a kit. They are kind of pricey, but man ALL the kids love them. Nieces and nephews included. So, one day i was playing on the web and decided to google them. I found their website, and it has a free drawing on it every month. I totally forgot I entered, and received an email today saying I won for April! How cool is that? Riles and I picked the community helper kit (dual role here..can play at home AND school.) lol
I can't believe I won!
(p.s.. those of you who are grandmas (hint hint) and aunts and uncles...these make WONDERFUL gifts. Dolls are included with each kit.)

Hmm...things to ponder...
Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
What color does a smurf turn when he is choking?
If nothing sticks to teflon, how does teflon stick to the pan?
Just some things i have been thinking about...

I was reading on another MB..i gotta quit doin' that..about how one woman found out her husband of x years was cheating on her. How sad..she listed all the things she never suspected, etc. of the items she listed Chris is doing.
Going out of town on "business trips" (today at 4:30 he couldn't even tell me if he had to go to Moline or not to pick up a combine),
spending a lot more money
being secretive (like he ever talks anyway)
not interested in me (yeah, right...everytime I walk past him, he is grabbing a handful of something)...
SO..what do you think the odds are that Chris is having an affair?

LOL...i know. I am just kidding around. I think he might actually be the last person I have to worry about having extracurricular activities. hmm...
