April 20th-30th

April 30th
Ian got a hold of my camera again today. As you can see I was folding a sheet. He was bound and determined to get my picture, so he chased me around the house. He still did not get an actual picture of my face. LOL

April 29th
We had a knock on the door today and I was my new neighbor. She brought me roses from her yard and invited Ian and me over for a playdate on Friday. It should be a lot of fun!

April 28th
I did a belly flop in the the Walmart parking lot yesterday and I HURT today! Thank goodness for all my fluff or it could have been much worse! My mom was loading groceries in the car and turned to see my laying behind the car two stalls over. And all I could say was "get my receipt" which is what I was chasing when I fell...dang wind!

April 27th
We got out the paints today. My ;little artist loves to paint, well squeeze globs of paint on the paper. And then I showed him what folding the paper in half would make. Here is his master piece...

April 26th
Jenica let me borrow her copy of Twilight on Friday and I just started reading it today. So far I am loving it! I wish I had more time to read!

April 25th
Rachel and I went to the Just Between Friends Consignment sale. The is a picture of all the loot I bought. Ian LOVES his cash register!

April 24th
I can finally post these pictures now that I gave Megan her birthday present! I made the box/purse on my cricut and a card to match. I love making cards and paper crafts. I don't think I can actually call myself a scrapbooker anymore. I think I can just be put in the crafter category now :)

April 23rd
I went out to run errand after Sean got home. I went to Once Upon a Child and made $109! I then spent it all at Old Navy LOL At the last minute I decided to get my hair cut. I went to the Hoss Lee Academy. I was a little nervous about going to a school, but I love my hair cut! If you go in there be sure to ask for Ali!

April 22nd
It has been hot the last few days so I decided to get Ian's swimming pool out of the shed today. We had a great time splashing around. Then we found a lady bug. Ian actually held it, much to my surprise! I just love this picture!

April 21st
Look at what I made! I took my very first class at Green Tangerines tonight! I had the best time. Aren't these just the cutest things! When you pull out the "cherry" and "whipped cream" it reveals a gift card. They are quite a bit of work to make, but would make a very cute and unique gift!

April 20th

April 9th-19th

April 19th

We went to the Beale Airshow today. I was a great day! Ian is still talking about the planes...Sean too! lol It was the best we have had in a very long time!

April 18th
I have been trying to organize my craft room lately. I finally finished sort ALL my paper! The printed paper is in the trays on the peg board and sorted by color. I use my new Lyrical Letter Cricut cartridge for the labels. And the the solid cardstock and scrap paper are in accordian files. Soooo much easier to find stuff now!

April 17th
Ian and I went to the park today with Megan, Sean and Kaitlyn. We had a great time even thought the boys fight like brothers! Note to self...Bring two of everything! LOL This is a pic of Sean reminding Ian that "remember what your mom said, you need to share" It was too funny!

April 16th
Yet another reminder that I need to get a lock for my makeup drawer! He found my brand new mineral powder. Good thing it wasn't the expensive stuff. Oh and he is not rying because he has it all over him, but because I wanted to take his picture!

April 15th
This is Ian's new favorite thing to do...build a "tower" in my room. He brings ALL of the pillows and blankets from around the house and puts them in a pile to watch his shows. He is so proud of himself.

April 14th
We went to Wacky Taky again today. This time we went with Laura, Madeline and Gloria. We almost had the whole place to ourselves except for the three bratty boys whose mother's didn't care that they were bullying our kids. But other than that the kids had a great time!

April 13th
I had to drop my car off to get the window fixed so I thought I would take Ian across the street to John's Incredible Pizza. My mom met us there and we had the best time! Ian loves the football game just like his daddy. Look at that arm!

April 12th
HAPPY EASTER! What a fun morning! The Easter Bunny hid the eggs out in the backyard this year. Ian had a blast finding the eggs and especially eating the chocolate from his Easter basket!

April 11th
We had a busy day today. We went to the Wheatland and Lincoln Easter egghunts. Ian found lots of eggs, but his favorite part was peeling the shells off. then we dyed eggs after his nap. He had so much fun. Look at all the cool bugs he made. He was so proud of them.

April 10th
I went to lunch with Jenica and her kids today after MOMs. We went to Chipolte. The company was great! And the food was ok. I hade a chicken salad. Next time I think I will stick with a burrito.

April 9th
Ian got a hold of my camera again today. He loves to floowing Diablo around trying to take his picture. This one isn't too bad! We may have a photographer on our hands.

April 1st-8th

April 8th
Megan and I took the boys to Wacky Tacky today. It was PACKED because it was spring break. I was a little worried that Ian would be overwhelmed, but the boys had a great time! We will definitely go back when it is less crowed.

April 7th
You can't see it, but there is a little pilot laying on the other side of Ian. They are watching the clouds together. He's grandma taught him to look for shapes in the clouds. I guess he is teaching the pilot too.

April 6th
Aren't these guys too cute! Megan, Stephanie and I took the boys to the mall to play today. Megan needed new sunglasses so we stopped at JcPenney. Ian, Sean and Caelan had a great time trying on sunglasses too!

April 5th
Ian and I were out taking a walk and we ran into a chicken! We live right on the city limits that borders Placer County...which means "the country" in my book. There are quite a few farms around us so I am assuming that the chicken crossed the road. HAHAHA, ok that was bad!

April 4th
Sean and I were invited to his co-workers retirement party at the Continental Buffet in Sacramento. The food wasn't great but the company was fabulous. Sean really does work with a great bunch of people.

April 3rd
I was going to get rid of my original Sizzix die cutting machine until I found out that I could use it to emboss. And then I found out that I can make my own embossing folders on the Cricut! Here is my first one. I think it turned out good, but it might be less work just to buy the Cuttlebug embossing folders LOL

April 2nd
I am making these cute little baskets for my MOMs group. I am going to fill them with grass and chocolates! We are having a spa day and all the moms love chocolate, so what could be better than mani's, pedi's and chocolate!

April 1st
Not too long ago I was searching on Amazon.com and came across this cool potty chair thingy. Ian saw it and told me he wanted it and said he would go potty if I bought it. It got here yesterday and Ian was so excited. I am proud to say that he used the potty 7 times today!
