I even have memories of 1972....

Misti-love the new avitar-fits perfectly-I just got home from df and trying to catch up on all the chat

I have photoshop 7 and I didnt think I would like it at all-too complicated, but I am not very good at giving up, so I persevered and although I have a ton to learn, I love it-I can spend hours puttering around with a page and then redo it in the am with out much fuss at all and I am totally amazed at all the free goodies out there to use!

But-I totally understand some not liking it, or any digi scrappin-because I totally felt that way for a very long time!!!

Wow-I won a stamp set-I was so excited-thanks for moving that over to the chat thread!!

Now to enjoy my ice cream-df wanted chinese and I succumbed so I am having ice cream and usng my no weigh pass at WW tomorrow

Really felt good to get those cards done though, came out so cute, once the glitter dries will have to take pics, I can really tell I have matured recently in my scrapping and card making, it's a nice realization!

But figured it was time to call it quits, will head upstairs in a couple, just wanted to pop back in and let you know I hadn't completely deserted you all yet
Cards? Oh No! And here I sit! I have a wedding shower to go to tomorrow and a wedding on Sunday! I need to be making some cards!!!!

Ok - so all kidding aside....

Me and my DD got to talk to my DH over Skype tonight and it was so nice! My DD HATES talking on the phone, so Skype is an easy way for her to talk to her daddy b/c she gets to SEE him. It was sooo cute!

heehee, I'm not usually a very colourful person, Carol. I pretty much have black, black and denim in my closet, I don't wear makeup, don't have pierced ears...

It's all dd. She draws rainbows everywhere, and pots of gold. Ani started dressing herself recently, and it's ALL about the expression of her inner state. Today she wore RED from head to toe (dress, pants, socks AND sweater) - with a butterfly hair band. She said, "I'm a Hibiscus flower, that's why there are butterflies. Mom, I need hummingbird hair clips!"

She already has her Valentines' outfit picked out - pink skirt with apple blossoms, green shirt with hot pink hearts on it, blue tights with sparkly Hello Kitties on them, gold shoes and a striped purple/green/rust sweater. Oh yeah, it's going to be a good day to wear shades!

don't worry, these are cards to go out sometime in the next couple of days, of course I HAVEN'T done a card for Maddy's little buddy's bday tomorrow. At least one of the gifts is wrapped, and the rest I have. So hopefully, I can go make him a great card at some point So see the great procrastinator arises again!!!

Well gang, going to call hubby while I can and go to bed.

Night all, don't stay up too late

Happy Chatting

Those are my children. God had sense enough to make us wait to have children - although chasing a toddler in my 40's is not what it's cracked up to be. And I shutter to think about how old I will be when the youngest graduates high school....so I choose not to think about it .

we do that too, it really is a great tool, especially when hubby is stuck somewhere over in Asia for a few days. Maddy really loves seeing her dada that way, just points and plays peek a boo and gets really silly.

That is so neat!!! I have a friend who's dh was in Iraq and they talked over that thingy! I've never seen one?!!!! Anyway, DH told DD that they had no Dr. Pepper in Iraq and could she run and get him one. She got one out of the fridge and sat it by the screen. Then he had DD go get something else while mom hid the Dr. Pepper! So DD really thought that her daddy had it!!!! So cute!

I thought they were yours...that's why I thought you were closer to Gina's age! They'll keep you forever young! I waited too, but only till I was 27 and 30!!!

That must have been great for your daughter. I can't imagine how hard it is for her not having her daddy there. You are truely one of the amazing families. I may not be from the U.S. but I am very grateful for what your husband and his colleges not to mention yourself and the other families give up for all of us every day of your lives. There are just no words that could possiblly say Thank you in a strong enough way.

It's all dd. She draws rainbows everywhere, and pots of gold. Ani started dressing herself recently, and it's ALL about the expression of her inner state. Today she wore RED from head to toe (dress, pants, socks AND sweater) - with a butterfly hair band. She said, "I'm a Hibiscus flower, that's why there are butterflies. Mom, I need hummingbird hair clips!"

She already has her Valentines' outfit picked out - pink skirt with apple blossoms, green shirt with hot pink hearts on it, blue tights with sparkly Hello Kitties on them, gold shoes and a striped purple/green/rust sweater. Oh yeah, it's going to be a good day to wear shades!

So cute! She's quite the fashion model!!! I'm all about denim myself!

I think you have more patience when you are older. I love things like coloring and silly music and playing games so I feel like I'm in an eternal childhood. Today my exercise consisted of multiple rounds of Head, Shoulders, Knees & toes.....

Thanks, Susie! That means a lot to me It is an honor for my husband to serve his country and the ppl of his country (as well as those not as fortuneate as us). He loves his job. Granted, he would rather be home, but he feels that he is making a difference in the world and making it safer for his daughter and other peoples children.

Yes - unfortunately he has to go back AGAIN in November for another 6 months. But, we will make the most of our time together when he is home. We are planning our first trip to Disneyland - none of us have ever been!
