First layout of 2010!

I got a layout done today in my nice clean scraproom! I even cleaned up when I was done so that it is amazingly still clean :) I've been wanting to scrap these pictures for a long time and finally found the perfect papers and stickers to do it. This was done for week one of LCOM's 52 pick up challenge. The goal is to do one layout each week, based on a provided sketch, in 2010...I'm off to a good start :)

I also took the kids out to play in the snow today. This is a big deal for me 1. because it's so much work to get them dressed in all their gear to go out and 2. because I really hate snow. But I feel guilty enough on a nice snowy day that I take them out. I used to have the excuse that Bridget just wouldn't be happy out there, but not anymore. She LOVES it!

How hard is it for 3 kids to put their heads close together and smile? Very!

Over-heard conversation between 2 brothers:

Kieran: The first thing I'm going to do when I get outside is jump in the snow.
Riley: Yeah, the first thing I'm going to do is a cannon ball (which in our house doesn't just apply to water...any type of jumping will do, lol)
Kieran: Riley, your the best brother ever!

Heehee, they have their moments!

(See, more kid moments just for you Amy S.!)
