A short break.

I haven't had much of a chance to do anything scrapping related since yesterday morning. After my hurried post we headed off to a crawfish festival. It was a little bit disappointing. $5 per person to get in then $10 per 3lb plate of crawfish. Not exactly a good deal. But they did taste good. I was going to buy Ella a hotdog, but at $4 a dog I decided that listening to her whine all the way home was worth it, she could eat later. Also we left the camera in the car so not even any pictures!!

When we got home we sat down for an Alias marathon. We ended up watching 8 episodes!! Yes, sometimes I can be a loser that way. My poor children were very neglected. But I'm going out of town tomorrow and we had to finish them before they were due back! Besides, once you start watching Alias you can't just stop. We're halfway through season 2. Long way to go.

Today was the usual rush to leave for church, where the kids were so bad I was tempted to just turn around and leave. Plus my late night watching Alias didn't help my temper much. But we survived. Then back home for, yep, more Alias. But we finished in time to give the kids a little bit of attention before putting them to bed.

Tomorrow I'm taking the kids and driving to Louisiana to visit my sister Andrea. Anton is going to stay here to study and go to class. I'm excited. We're going to have all sorts of fun. Most of it involving scrapping. We spend hours on the phone each week playing on our computers and now we won't have to use cell phone minutes. We can send the kids out to play in the dirt pile and scrap to our hearts' content! Also we are going to have a REAL crawfish boil which will totally make up for yesterday. Also, if we can get Ella comfortable riding their horses we may enter her in a rodeo on Saturday! How fun would that be?!?

But that's all I have to ramble about for now. Remember, if you haven't voted yet for Queen of the Crop there is a link over there <------- that'll take you right to my page and you can vote!

PS Just in case you were thinking, "Man I came over here to see some scrapbooking, and what did I get? A weekend recap!" here's an older layout of mine that I love. Ella looks so little!

Okay, I posted a really LONG comment and it isn't showing! Anyway, we didn't go to the festival because we thought it was going to rain {long drive to get rained out!} We are going to Dallas for vacation {my brother is graduating from college, so we are going for that, plus I lived there for 3 years and still have friends that we are going to visit} Have a great time in Louisiana {where are you going?} I hope you have a safe, fun trip!

Alias is one of my favourite shows as well so I totally understand you could watch 8 episodes in a row.. ;) BTW, I just read you were accepted on W&W's CT so congratulations! You seem to be a lucky girl lately.. :)
