I'm not sure if I've ever done a layout without photos before, but I like the result! I really wanted to use the monogram side of the Cosmo paper, but the Ms were off the edge and no W at all. Then I realized the A and T were next to each other...

Matthew and McKelle had a great time Saturday night at Sadie Hawkins. They consented, despite the chilly, rainy weather, to let me take a few pictures of the group.

Can you tell I'm cleaning off the front of my fridge?? It is definitely a mom fridge, full of schedules, love notes, little hand-drawn pictures and permission slips. Most of the time, I really don't mind - it is my life, after all. But it is getting pretty full and I decided to save some of my favorite pieces before they get knocked off and disappear into under-the-fridge oblivion.

* WAITING for insurance approval to switch meds. Rituximab is holy cow expensive - $6500 or so per infusion (I will need 2). In the meantime, chemo & prednisone are the routine. Got a DEXA scan yesterday to look at bone loss from long term steroid use. Crossing my fingers that it isn't too bad.
*SIGNING kids up. Mason for kindergarten (gasp!) Matthew and McKelle for Driver's Ed (finally!) Max for baseball.
*PREPARING for the weekend. Mitchell is have his birthday party Saturday afternoon and I also agreed to host the dessert portion of McKelle's Sadie Hawkins date Saturday evening. We're thinking one of those cute dessert tables with a cowboy theme.
*PLAYING with Studio Calico's Into the Woods Kit and add-ons.

This layout got a little crazy. I had a vision in my head - not so sure the result matches the vision. I was going to link this up with Kelly Noel's Challenge on the SC blog (step outside your box to make a page) but I missed the deadline by a day.
Everything is from SC Into the Woods kit and add-ons except the Zing and mini alpha (October Afternoon.) Punch is from Martha Stewart.

This kit looked a little feminine (for a houseful of boys!) when I first opened it. However, every time I think I'm about done with it, another layout pops into my head. LOVE this kit!

We're not Catholic. And not particularly Irish, though there's probably some back there somewhere. But I just can't pass up a holiday. Nobody at our house likes corned beef or cabbage, so we came up with our own way of celebrating.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
This little guy says the funniest things. I keep little notebooks to jot them down. Or add a note on my iPhone. Or if they're really funny, I'll post them as my status on Facebook.

Give a boy a sticker...
And since I seem to be in a orange/blue mode, I'll share a couple of cards I made yesterday.

Do you celebrate? I don't remember doing so as a child, except for the yearly trip to McDonalds for Shamrock Shakes (and what's up with McD's shakes?? Not thick like they used to be...) We moved to Philadelphia when Matthew was two and McKelle was not quite one, we were introduced to all things green and leprechaun-ish by my sweet friend Janet. Leprechaun traps, hidden gold, glitter trails throughout the house and of course, leprechaun mischief. Green milk, green toilet water, little messes here and there. The kids LOVE it, even the bigs.
And me, well any excuse to decorate and make fun food is a good thing!
