Conversation with my 6 year old


So I was shopping with Sierra this past weekend. She was showing me what she liked. She shows me this stuffed animal and says, " It's a webkin and you can go to www.webkins.com and play games mommy." I tell her how neat that is and how when I was young I didn't have the internet.
That comment sparked this conversation:
Sierra: "Is it because you were a caveman mommy?" (yes, totally serious! LOL)
Me: "Um no sweetie, I was not a caveman!"
Sierra: "were there airplanes when you were young?"
Me: "yes sweetie there were!"
Sierra: "Were there cars or did you have to ride a horse everywhere?"
Me: "sweetie....mommy isn't that old. We lived in a house like you do. We had cars and airplanes back then too."
Sierra: "Oh cool! I would love to see pictures of you when you were young! To bad there were no cameras."
okie doke, so I aged about 20 years after that conversation! LOL

Last night I finally finished my last project for our upcoming book. I took all my projects out to look at them. While they were on the table I took pictures of each item and inventoried everything.
It was so much fun to see everything I had created for the last few months.
Each one of us girls that worked on this book had a lot of fun. All of us have such different styles so it's going to be so super fun looking at the finished project. I can't wait for everyone to see what they created!!

This weekend...

Friday nights are a lot of fun!! I get to hang out with my friends which is always great!! Most of the time I do nothing but this time I got a little bit of scrapping done. (miracle)
On Saturday I got to sleep in a little! It was so wonderful! It's been a LONG time since I've gotten a chance to sleep in. I got to work and started scrapping again with Rocio, who was designing something for the store.
I managed to scrap three pages. Two I really like and the third I'm going to re-do. Here are the two I like.

Love that Smile--Using NEW Creative Cafe products!!

Having fun with Po!--Love Elsie, Hambly, and Creative Cafe

Saturday night, I went out with family and friends to go bowling!! I'm actually getting better!!! I got a few strikes and a lot of spares. I'm so SHOCKED!! I was doing killer until the strobe lights went on, the lights went off, the fog was everywhere, and the screens came down for the videos to come on!LOL

On Sunday, I took the kids to lunch. That was nice. We then met up with Angel and her family to go to the park. The weather was beautiful!

Heading to the playground @ Lake Elizabeth!

Tanner going down the slide.

He LOVED the swings!!

I haven't taken a photo of the two of them together in a long time and this is what they gave me!! Crazy kids! Sierra was so excited about the baby geese in the lake.
