Picture Tag ... I'm It!

I've been tagged by sweet Karen. I'm supposed to go to my 4th picture folder and pick the 4th picture and post it here for everyone to see.

So when I click to upload my pictures this what you find ... Biscuit on January 13th .. chillin' in Daddy's chair. No she isn't a rotten pup or anything? She just thinks this is where a pup is suppose to sleep .. with or without someone to snuggle with! Can't say I blame her. Maddie calls it the "Princess Chair" even though it belongs to the Prince. HA!

TAG ...YOU'RE IT ... Lanny , Meg, Think & Pink & Shari ... Let's see what ya' got in your folders!

Snow Test .... What type are you?

Your Snow Test Says You're Independent

You feel like something good will happen to you in the next few months.

You love to work, especially when work is creative. You have the makings of a successful artist.

You are an independent, individualistic person. You thrive when you're doing your own thing.

Your biggest worry in your life is your health. You tend to be a bit of a hypochondriac.

When it comes time to relax, you have no problem letting go. You are already pretty relaxed as is!

Peddling Fool

I just had to share this with you ... Maddie has got her groove on!!! She has finally gotten over the fear of falling on the street and is a peddling maniac now!! Of course Mommy & Daddy are so proud, but wishing it was just a bit warmer. She needs to cruise before school, after school & I think in her sleep. :) She has asked for a new bike WITH kickstand for her birthday next month. Of course she has also requested it be ..... PINK .. what other color is there right? (Well, if you live in her world there is no other color ... a pink t shirt is a requirement for every outfit .. no lie & it makes Daddy crazy!) Anyhow, just wanted to post and share this great new adventure we are on at our house!

16 Random Thins .... Tag ... It's Your Turn!

OK , I read two of my friends' blogs .. Shelley & Donielle ... so now I feel compelled to share my "16 Random Things About Me" ..... so if you are reading this and your are a Blog World friend, it's your turn to post on your blog your 16 things. So here goes ...

1. I am obsessed with surfing the Internet to find fun things to do and make.

2. I have to check Blog World every morning after the bus has run ... I want to know what everyone is up to. I just can not help myself.

3. My husband thinks that I am "half Japanese" as he calls me because I love to take pictures .. of any and everything. You would think I am a tourist or something some days.

4. Yes, I love to take pictures, but my scrapbooks are amazingly far behind. My computer is cluttered with the storage of these pictures I take.

5. I enjoy my chats in the mornings at the bus stop with the other Mommies .. even if it is too cold to be outside and I have flip flops on.

6. I think we should be allowed to go out in public with our jammies on ... I rather stay in mine all day long than have to get dressed. Might explain the fact why I have so many matching sets of them and can never decide what to wear when I do leave the house. :)

7. I'd rather be barefoot of wear flip flops than any other kind of shoe. Guess that is why I own more Rainbow Flops than regular shoes. I buy a new color each season.

8. I actually enjoy getting up early even though I sometimes complain about it. I seem to get more done before the bus runs and before lunch if I get up at ... UGH ... 5 :30 a.m.

9. I love the idea of being organized, but never seem to get there 100%.

10. I love baskets .. lots of them! In almost every room. YIKES!

11. When I clean up my sewing room and put everything away .. I can't find it when I need it.

12. I LOVE those reality shows on MTV. I can't help myself. Probably because we never had cable growing up.

13. I almost always cry at some point during Grey's Anatomy .... I just get so caught up in it.

14. I keep all my Picture Christmas Cards up for a whole year until the new ones start coming in . I just love to see how much all the children have grown. Sometimes you don't realize it when you see them everyday until those cards arrive.

15. I love/hate the fact Maddie is growing up. I want to freeze her here at 6 years old before she can turn 7 next month. I want her to need me, but she really doesn't most day anymore .. except for a ride to swim team or dance! ;)

16. I really enjoy making "Cyber Gal Pals" in Blogland ... it's fun to share with these creative and crafty gals. Thanks for your cyber friendship!!!!

OK .............. so now it's your turn to post!!

OMG! What a flashback day!

Yesterday I took Maddie to a birthday party .. a skating rink one! OMG! Yes, talk about a flashback to 4th grade and Friday night or Saturday afternoon at the skating rink! (Paula Keith .. you know what I am talking about!!)
It was amazing!!

I skated for 3 hours with the kiddos . Maddie was embarrassed and told me afterwards she wished I had stood on the side and talked to the other Mommies and be normal! I did talk to other Mommies .. while I was catching my breathe or grabbing a drink of water. So I apologize if I didn't talk to everyone as long as I should have, but I was having too much fun!

When I was younger I skated every chance I could get at my next door neighbor's house on their LONG paved driveway and my brothers rode their bikes. (We also played CHIPS on the driveway .. yes like the TV Show .. great times) They were great days!! I was obsessed with skating , twirling .. the whole nine yards.

So a HUGE thanks to the Arbour family for inviting Maddie to the party and allowing the parents to skate as well!! Also to my little skating partner Casey, who sang ALL the songs WORD FOR WORD as we skated hold hands around the rink, falling and laughing the whole time!

Thank You Pink Christmas Girlie!

I just wanted to share real quick one of my gifts that I got from my Pink Christmas Girlie! I hung it in the kitchen in the perfect place for the perfect gift!!! This was the neatest event that I have ever participated in. Put it on your list of things to look into doing this year and make your Christmas a Pink one in 2009!

I had been looking for a word for my year and had been leaning towards SIMPLIFY .... but I think I will have to have a side order of Live * Laugh * Love as well .... besides how simple is that to do? What would your word be for the year if you had to pick one?
