This is my second mother's day with the girls away from home. They both called. Bre had left signs with Josiah to put around the house....a nice surprise.I've been working on creating various files for slide shows, for printing, etc. I hope to get Josiah's display board done in the next day or two. THIS is what I SHOULD have worked on at our last PWOC Scrapping Night. ::Snort:: Debby and Mandy are scrapping pros - they would have whipped it out in no time for me. Oh - not really a mother's day gift per se...but Mike bought me a jump drive. I've already used it to compile files of photos from the various computers and such. This will be very handy since we don't have our computers networked. He bought Jamin one too to store his book and school work on. Last week Jamin lost SIX weeks of lit and history discussion questions when a disc he had backed them up on suddenly quit working. We are jinxed around here.
Here I am with my "loot". I got flowers from Mike and from the children. Arielle made a couple of bright and cheery cards. Nolan also made a card. The rectangle box is a digital photo frame!!!!! from Mike and the younger 4. Have you seen these? We put a card in it and it scrolls through the photos. We can add MP3 files....guess we'll wait and let Bre figure that out this summer. ::snort:: I LOVE this gift. I can put photos that are on the computer (as in not scrapped yet) on a card and in this frame and we can enjoy them. IN THE LIVING ROOM...not quite the same as sharing photo albums on the couch but certainly a step in the right direction. ::snort:: We'll have this at Josiah's graduation with photos scrolling through it. Cool.
AND we totally demolished one of Mike's famous ice cream cakes! Yumm! It was Stacia's first and she approved. Zander was upset when he heard we were having cake instead of ice cream - because we always do ice cream once a week on Sunday night. He was 1/2 way through his piece when he said, "Ummm....this tastes like ICE CREAM!" ::snort:: I was too busy eating to snap a photo of the cake before it disappeared. I guess he'll have to make another!
