So somehow the dsl box at my house reset itself the other night and now Rob has to completely set it back up again. Which of course won't happen until next week, because we're going to Reutlingen today, EuropaPark tomorrow, Church on Sunday, and we have company coming over on Monday. ... Maybe I can convince him to do it Monday... So anyway, no email, no blogging, no scrapbooking forum... ... ... how am I going to function!!!! I'm writing this blog at work, btw, which I'm sure is against the law.
SSOOOOO... everyone have a great Labor Day weekend!

She talked a lot about the day. Lunch was good. Music was good. Recess was good. The teacher is good. She couldn't stop talking! She was still talking to me about her first day when she got on the bus this morning. Which, by the way, is a van.

Coffee at bedtime is never a good idea! It is 3:17am and I am WIDE AWAKE! Ugh. I made SEVEN digital scrapbooking pages tonight, wrote two Haikus in Corinnea's comments, and downloaded a ton of new fonts from the internet. AHHHH! I have to teach a class in a few hours and I MUST SLEEP!!!
Here's a link to my newest scrapbooking pages, my pages for a contest I'm involved in, and the website where I got some fonts (just in case you're a font junkie like me).
(Ethan's not really crying in this photo; he just looks like it. I think he was nervous about the "spinning" room.)

Ok, here's my second fun thing for tonight! I learned how to skew, and create reflections, and fade stuff out all in one go! Now I have to do something more creative with it...

Today was Ethan's 4th Birtday Party! What a blast! I know it's a bit late (since his birthday was July 16) but it was hard to pick a date because so much was going on in July. We had lots of friends over, yummy junk food, and cool gifts! The kids all played outside with water guns and outside toys. We brought out all of Ethan's superhero costumes and got the kids to dress up. One kid kept changing his costume because he wanted to be all of them! It was so cute! Ethan also got a new bike for his birthday, but I don't have photos of that yet. Rob took a few with his phone, but I need to take some with the camera.
Oh, those blobs in the page above are chocolate milk, Spiderman sugar cookies, and oreo icecream cupcakes. I made the icecream cupcakes because Ethan wanted icecream and I wanted cupcakes. Compromise = the yummiest icecream cake I think I've ever had! The crust at the bottom was ground up oreo "chips." Big hit!

Then I printed the quilt blocks for Lizy's photo quilt. I hope she likes them! I grunged up the borders of the pictures a little, but not too much. I printed them at home since our big printer at work is out of ink, and she was having trouble with her own printer.
Then I made THIS for Jennifer. She sent me some pics of Halloween costumes and this one inspired me first.
