Busy weekend!

Again, we have a very busy weekend! Today Emma went to her friend, Jadyn's, birthday party and had a wonderful time! Gage had hockey practice and Scott helped Gage and Emma finish up their Pinewood Derby cars for Gage's race tomorrow! I got to go scrapbooking for the day with Emily. We had a great time. Emily's consultant, Tara, had a Cricut machine there that she let anyone who wanted to, use it!! I LOVE IT! I want one of my own terribly bad! I only got 2 pages done in the 4 1/2 hours we were there, but that is 2 more than I would have gotten done if I hadn't gone. I worked on hockey pages in Gage's school album and I just HATE doing hockey pages. I have apparently taken too many pictures and have run out of ideas with these pages and have been struggling with them for several months. In fact, I haven't worked on his school album since October or November (I think?) because of it! I'm nearly done with hockey pages, however, so hopefully I will start zipping along in his school album and get it caught up to present. Scott was such a dear and fixed a wonderful supper and invited Emily and the kids to join us. We had a fun evening.

Tomorrow Emma has another birthday party to attend at the bowling alley after Gage has his Pinewood Derby car race at his school for Cub Scouts. He made his car into a Star Wars X-Wing fighter complete with an R2-D2 Lego head attached! It looks very cool and Scott has the wheels spinning super fast, so we're hoping for some good luck tomorrow! I'm not sure how I will be able to handle the emotional part of the race. As a Mom, you want so badly for your child to win, and it just breaks my heart when that doesn't happen. I will have to give myself a few talks before the race along with Gage! Emma has her own car to race in the extra races they have for family members. Hers is a yellow "Luv Bug" with little flowers all over it. It too, is very cute! I can see a lot of pictures being taken tomorrow and I will do my best to get them posted tomorrow as well.

well I love the cricut too and bought one. the cartridges are expensive. I bought it in hopes of making me want to scrapbook again. I am hiding it right now so when i bring it out brian will think i had it all along. LOL. I hope Gage wins because the emotional part of the derby is aweful. Been there done that. Good luck.
