A story, a LO and a looong night

Ok, so I haven't taken pictures of Riley's book yet, but I'll write the story here. It's not as funny without the pictures, but it takes so long to upload/edit/blog that I procrastinate. I thought that you would all find the story itself funny though, so here it is:

Dog Wanted to Watch a Movie
By Riley and Mommy

There once was a dog named google eyes (in case you were wondering it's because he likes to make things with google eyes, not because he has google eyes himself).  He called his friends to go to the movie theatre.  But then it snowed and they could not go because the roads were covered (we wrote this the day of the snowstorm :)). 

When the raods were plowed they were able to go to the movie.  Google eyes said, "Let's go out to the movie theatre, friends."  All the friends listened to the puppy and they did go out with him.  

Then they were there and then they got some popcorn.  Then they opened their bags and ate their popcorn and watched the movie.  They all sat quietly and didn't make a sound because they knew someone would put them in time out.  The puppies saw the movie was about a train.  And the puppies all had fun.  

The End.

Heehee...I still laugh when I read it :)

Ok, so after putting it off and putting it off, I finally got my third LO done for the contest over at Treasured Scrapbooking.  We had to use part of the lyrics from the song Moonlight Serenade. We also had to use product on our LO that was at least 6 months old.  I have scrapped this picture before, but it's so cute I didn't mind scrapping it again :).

And here's a detail shot of the beading.  it took awhile but I really love how it looks!

There's also a cyber crop going on at Paws this weekend.  I haven't done any of the challenges yet, but there are some really fun ones.  You never know, I might get a chance to do one sometime.  Hey, if my baby stays up all night every night then I should be able to get more done, right?

Yup, B was up A LOT last night.  You might know on a night that I go out with the girls she's up 4 times between 12:30 and 5:30. Riley was also up twice.  Once at 3:30 asking if it was time to get up.  Yikes! I pray they sleep better tonight!!
