Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Today is Kara's husband, David's birthday. They came over with pizza for lunch and we sang to him and had cheesecake. Hyrum watched Kara quite closely and excitedly put the candles in the cake and said very clearly, "Happy birthday to you!" We all cracked up! I laughed so hard I got tears in my eyes. He also kept repeating "cake, yum, yum, yum, cake!" He is so enthusiastic! I just can't believe how much he is talking! Earlier today he kept saying "poporn" which is his way of saying popcorn. I just had to make him some. The kid almost ate all of it. He just loves the stuff!

Maddy is getting better at being on her tummy. I try to remember to put her on her stomach every day while Hyrum is eating or taking a nap so he can't sit on her or poke her in the eye or anything like that. The poor girl probably won't even learn to roll over for a long time because she is hardly ever put on the floor. Her big brother just likes her too much. ;)

Jay got me the coolest thing for Mother's Day (yes, I know it's a day early, but I'm not complaining)! It is this magnetic shadow box that is 12x12. PERFECT for putting my latest and greatest layout in to look at and admire. He is so good at giving gifts! He really thinks about what I would like. I would probably have never bought that for myself, but I love having it! He also got me "The Terminal" -- a great movie and a Nickelcreek CD. What a guy! I have absolutely NOTHING to complain about! And here I was thinking that he wasn't even going to get me anything. LOL.

Today is National Scrapbooking Day (NSD for short) and I was part of a baggie challenge and boy was it ever a challenge! I really had to step out of my comfort zone and usual style to be able to use everything that I got. I really, really like how it turned out. I will try and put a scan of it on here after the contest is over (just in case anyone from LM comes and reads this). I still want to do another layout today though... maybe 2 depending on the kids and Jay. Better get back at it! :D
