The 2 hours it took to get him to sleep last night was payback for the wonderful 2 1/2 nap he took for me yesterday afternoon (that was heavenly!). After taking a bath, getting pj's on, brushing teeth, saying goodnight, reading books, turning out the light, saying our prayers, and snuggling for a few minutes, I tried to leave which led to an hour long tantrum. He tried everything- I have to pee, I have to poop, I have to throw up- and I stood there and held his door closed. Finally he took his diaper off (he's only wearing one at bedtime now), and I knew he couldn't put a new one on, so I let him out, he didn't have to poop, I out a new diaper on and sat on his bed for about 10 minutes until he fell asleep. Ugh.
Scott reports that tonight went better. Cross your fingers that this phase is over QUICK!

So, this is one of my favorite layouts, primarily because I want to use my patterned paper in new and different ways, and I really like this. I am using Creative Memories Mod Power Palette for my 2007 album (I used the Cabana Palette for 2006). I really like doing this because it limits the products I have to choose from a bit (I still use other products-like the thickers letter stickers-too, but primarily the power palette) so I have fewer choices to make and GET MORE DONE! I highly recommend these (not just because I sell them *grin*).
BTW: that is me getting a toilet flushed on my head in the top right. Instead of a dunk tank, teachers sat in a flush tank. The things we'll do to raise money for our schools!

We were playing "bolleyball," as Ryan calls it, with balloons. What's so funny about that, you ask? Check out this photo:
Always a good time at Aunt Sandy's! Thanks, Aunt Sandy & Uncle Kirk!

Ryan and I yelling for the guys to throw us stuff:
One of the many floats:
And Ryan sorting our haul:
This next picture does not do justice to the amount of laughter and shrieking that was going on as we chased each other about the house tickling everyone.
Ryan and Gramps scheming about who was going to be tickled next.
And poor Scott has spent most of the weekend in bed with the flu.

I have a knack for picking odd houses for us to have scrapping weekends in. The place in Pickwick smelled (but that was really the paper mills in Pickwick, not the house), the place in Mississippi smelled of moth balls, had bad beds, and wasps. This place had the "Porno Room," a bedroom in the basement with mirrors on the ceiling.
It did have good scrapping space, though and didn't smell. And I got 27 pages done...well into 2007!

And the implications are much greater than just my favorite unranked team beating no-longer-#1 UNC. Our adopted local team, Univeristy of Memphis, just happens to be #2. Around here, we've been watching closely as UNC almost lost to Clemson, then Georgia Tech. But it was Maryland who finally knocked them off, leaving Memphis to take the #1 spot. So glad we could do it for them!

Until now. Now we really need them because he is exploring and into everything.
But, the drawer and cabinet stops won't help us anymore. Today, he figured them out.
"Mommy, look what I can I do!"

Although Midtown Vault Self Storage has been open for awhile, the Chamber of Commerce sometimes takes awhile to come out for a ribbon cutting.
