Ok, this is very cool.

Found these neat paper dolls here. She custom draws the doll to look like the image(s) you send her. I thought that was pretty fun!

How fun does this look?

I've been browsing online looking for neat reasonably priced Christmas gift ideas. There is some fun stuff out there! Especially if you have the dollars to spend and the space to put it all! Reasonably priced just doesn't seem popular in our society.

What is the best gift you've ever received, or gift you were the most excited to give??

That said, Payton would have tons of fun with this though!

Find Your Wings - Mark Harris

Saturday, September 15, 2007

I couldn't resist a re-creation.

I remembered this morning that I had pictures of Payton in this exact pink sleeper sitting on her couch. So now I have the same pics of Samara. Very fun. They are very similar yet there are distinct differences! Payton is a week short of 6 months here and Samara is 7 months.Thought I would share....can you tell the difference?

I read Sue's blog today it was very touching and as I sat and listened it got me thinking about how I also have special songs that remind me of those I've lost.

I love music, most of us do, not always the same types of music but music none-the-less. Some music marks me, it leaves an imprint on me, on my life. Sometimes it is an era, a phase of my life, sometimes it is an event, sometimes sad, sometimes happy. Certain songs will always conger up images and feelings, they will take me back, entice me to dance, or make me cry. Shari did a post like this awhile ago that I enjoyed so I thought I would do one to share with you.

My first specific musical memories take place in my mom's old Caprice classic. I remember we always had music on and both liked to sing along, and not always all that well! The Poppy family, Anne Murray, Connie Kaldor, Toto, Bonnie Tyler, Juice Newton, Chris De Burgh, and Raffi, to name a few, all bring me back to riding with my Mom when I was young. Good Times.

Wow, I'm having fun with this! Rod is rolling his eyes at me hehe! And it's taking a long time cause I'm listening to everything as I go along! So I think I'll do one more "era" tonight then it will be to be continued....

Next thing that comes to mind is listening to music with my friends in early, well I guess it would be middle elementary. When I was still in Alberta so grade 3 or 4. You know when we thought we were cool to have a pink hand held cassette recorder and sing along at the top of your lungs! Ok, I admit it, some of these where only on vinyl..... I remember listening to Tiffany, Billy Joel, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Culture Club, Wham, and The Shangri-Las. Picture fake microphones, exaggerated movements and lots of giggling. LOVE IT!! With Thriller though we would play the beginning and pretend someone was coming to get us, scream and run and hide!! Oh the fun!! hahahaha

To be continued...next up the embarrassing years.....

1st day of school!

Payton had her first day of Pre-School today. I was nervous, way more than she was! I was expecting her to stick by me a little more than she did. Pretty much as soon as we were in the classroom she was off exploring. Miss Sam said she did great. She thinks it's so funny her teachers name is Miss Sam! Anyways I'm tired and should really be making dinner so here's a few pics for you enjoy!

All ready to go!

Come on Mom!

Just one more! Smile!

Are you coming yet Mom?

Really mom, that's enough pics!

Payton and Ethan out front of the school.

This was what they did when asked to smile! LOL!


Waiting outside their classroom.

Heading inside, notice they are holding hands!

Straight to the toys. Notice the boy in the window with his finger where???
