I tend to like the “kitchen sink” version of scrapbooking, with a single photo and a lot of fun things flying around, but lately I’ve been experimenting with a more linear and simple way of doing things. It’s fun to switch it up every once in awhile.
“Are You Sad Mom?”
I was watching the The Orphanage, a wonderful movie from Spain. I loved loved loved it, but it made me cry because I’m a sucker for good movies.
Eliza woke up during the last five minutes and said, “Are You Sad Mom? Are You Crying?” I told her it was okay but she hugged me and told me to turn that “sad moony” off. Taylor (my little sister) wanted to watch it the next day, but Eliza took one look at it and said , “No! Turn that moony off! That moony makes Mommy sad!” I don’t know what impressed me more, that she recognized the movie or that she cared about my feelings. But seriously, if you like thrillers that you will love this movie! I haven’t seen one so original in a long time!
One of our important everyday adventures is grocery shopping. I love summertime because I actually have time to cook, and Eli loves helping find the item that we are looking for (it’s sort of like i spy). But she ALWAYS has to have a car cart, or a meltdown could be near.
“I love Candy Necklaces”
I’ve been avoiding using this lace card stock by KI Memories. It is super pretty, but I don’t like the way it looks when you cut across it. To save this I cut off part of it so that none of the flowers were cut in half.
There’s a little restored train in our county run by train lovers that mostly remind me of Shriners. It originally was a zoo train. Eliza loves it! We went with Jake’s little sister Savannah.
