According to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, approximately 200,000 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and nearly 40,000 will die from the disease.

Please consider helping my friends Emily and Angela Powers in their efforts to raise $4,600.00 for this cause.

Here's a pic of the amazing kit-

Thank you!

A quick update on the family. Well we are out for summer break which is nice. Haven't enjoyed it as much as planned just yet with the weather being so strange and the cottonwood bothering our allergies so much. The kiddos are away for the next few days so its very quiet. I'm cleaning and painting (the ceilings) and just trying to push through even though my sinuses and head are hurting.

Today though, my hubby is home from work and we are going to go out on a date night. Dinner and a movie? I can't remember the last time we were able to do that without children in tow. lol! I'm looking forward to it!

Here's a pic of dear son from the evening of excellence.

Here are a few lo's I've done recently-

And last- I am a lucky girl. I stopped in at the local scrap store the other day and found some really cool tools which I purchased. And when school was winding down I offered to make birthday cards for the employees for next school year over the summer. I was allowed to bring home (for the summer) the schools cricut expression and cartridges. I may use that to make a few hybrid things this summer as well. I guess it'll be a good way to see if I would use one enough to purchase my own after this one is returned. When my hubby returns to work tomorrow, I'll dig in out of the box and set it up. :)

My posts should be more frequent now that the busy time of the year for me is over. If you are still checking in, thank you!

Are we having fun yet?

Just a few more days.... and we'll be out of school for the summer. Yay! Can't wait. Until then, my head is just spinning!

We went to the zoo since last post. It was a lot of fun! We snapped tons of pics of course and here's a few. :)

We also went to the Evening of Excellence for my son where he was honor for his grade point average and two department awards. It was really awesome! His department awards were in English and Science. It was really neat that the high school organized this event to recognize all the students that put in the extra effort throughout the year. The pics for that evening are still on my camera so I'll have to share them later.

The garden is growing well and we have all kinds of goodies popping up. The corn is the only thing we had trouble with. It rained for days after planting them and so only half a row made it.

Father's day is coming and I searched high and low and thought of a great gift for dear hubby - an ipod touch. He loves music and games and has a really old ipod. When I was feeling him out, he ended up wanting to wait on that and buy a new GPS system that comes out at the end of the month. lol! So I got the ipod touch I had already bought, he gets my ipod nano and the new GPS when it comes out. lol! I'm a lucky girl!

No scrapping time, or time to play Sims 3, or play with my new ipod, but soon....

Talk to you again soon. Thanks for checking in!
