My hard work payed off!!

My sister Laura came down to visit for Christmas....I haven't seen her in over a year!! I decided I would make her a scrapbook for one of her presents. Well my hard work payed off because not only was she surprised but she loved it. I filled a 12x12 album full of pages from when we were kids up until now. She surprised me with tickets to Dirty Dancing...omg..omg...we went yesterday and it was absolutely amazing...we sat 7 rows up from the stage.... NOBODY PUTS BABY IN A would go back and see it in a heart beat!!! Now with two full days of shopping and running around done we are staying in today and relaxing.....

Oh..look what my daughter did....:(

She cut all the hair under what you are looking at, and her bangs and the sides..she is now going for the layered look:(
Bald spots anyone???

A whole lot of hair....
Yep..she cut off her hair the day before she started Junior Kindergarden....OMG...and not just a little bit of hair..a whole lot!! I have to give credit to CTMH Micro-Tip Scissors, they sure do make quick cuts with their super sharp small
My husband asked her why she cut her hair and she said "because I didn't like it", well ok little miss 4 year old...she also did a number on my sons hair as well...when asked why she cut his hair she said "because he asked me to"!!! I give up...I clipped and tied back her hair today the best I could...guess we will be going for some haircuts soon........

Marineland again...

Well my day started off with me printing out pictures of my last trip to Marineland. We weren't really doing anything today so I thought I would do a little scrappin' but while the pictures kept coming out of my printer I thought well why not go again seeing as how we have seasons passes. So we packed up and left and my pictures are still sitting on my printer...
It was hot and humid but the kids enjoyed it!!!

Great gift idea!!!
