Sophie you melt my heart.........

Bodi had his cub scouts over tonight and Sophie introduced me to one of them.
She put her arm around my shoulders and said
"This is my cute, little Mama!"
I had a flash forward to when I am 80 in a nursing home.
So Cute!!

Laynie or Renesmee............

I knew Bodi was HOT like Edward, but I didn't know that we would have a little vampire! I love her little fangs!

Aquarium fun.........

My sister Rachel came in town on Friday and it gave us a good excuse to get together. We went to the Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy. We went along with my cousin Emily, her kids, my sister Hannah and my aunt Jan. It was our first time to the aquarium so we didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was so fun! All of the kids had a great time looking at all of the fish. Bridger, EJ, Jaylee, Jett Laynie, Hannah, Sophie
We got to pet the sting rays. They were so slimy.

Sophie was so brave and touched a starfish. She said "Mom it's bumpy!"

Laynie loved to look at all the fish!
I would definitely recommend taking a trip to the aquarium. We had a great time! Thanks Rachel for getting us all together!

My Five:
1. Bath and body works lip gloss!
2. Being able to go to the mall by myself.
3. Date night with my hubby
4. Having an organized pantry.

Project 365

I am so excited about this new project that I have started. It is called Project 365. The basic concept is to take a picture of a specific moment everyday and scrapbook it. It is a way to capture what really happens with your family. It is not just scraping a birthday and Christmas over and over again. At first I thought that it would be too much work but as the days have gone by (all 7 of them) I have realized that I am looking for those moments to capture. There are lots of ladies in the digital scraping world that have started doing this and are providing templates for every week. ( If you are not a scrapbooker just blog your weekly pictures ) There are lots of ideas out there to help you get different photos for everyday. Here are some ideas:
* whats for dinner
* breakfast
* places you go
* bed head photos
* games you play
* funny things kids do
* the view from your windows
* your yard in the spring
* favorite things in your home
I have posted my layout for the first week. As you can see I am still missing a picture. I am not going to get discouraged because I forgot one day. ( I am just going to cheat and put something else in it's place.)
I hope you guys have liked my new project. Let me know if you are going to do it and if you have any great ideas! Happy Scrapping!
