Happy Easter!!!

We had a wonderful Easter that started with a visit from the Easter Bunny, who brought baskets of goodies AND newborn baby ducks to show us!!!  We enjoyed a wonderful church service and were happy to give up our usual pew to see such a packed church!!!  We enjoyed dinner with my paternal grandparents and cousins and then the afternoon hanging out with my husband's paternal grandma and TONS of cousins! 

Marissa and I made these eggs and stayed up way too late on Saturday night!


They turned out SOOO amazing!!!  I spent $3 at the local thrift store on silk scarves and an old bed sheet.  Here's the tutorial that I used.  FYI-your eggs need to be boiled before you start.  I'm gonna be on the lookout for some cool silk ties, shirts, and scarves over the next year!!!

He Said/She Said

Daddy, talking to Ryan:  Where do you learn this shit???  (I don't remember what he was doing)
Marissa: Me

Marisssa: YELLING: RYAN JOSEPH!!!  YOU DON'T TAKE THINGS FROM PEOPLE!

Ryan: Wiggle Wiggle Go!  (He says this a hundred times throughout the day, he LOVES this Yo Gabba Gabba song!  He starts wiggling and yelling as soon as he sees Yo Gabba Gabba!  I think I've decided on a theme for his 2 year Bday party ;)

Photo Book Pages


These are some pages for my Photobook Scrapbook.  I made some blank pages to add in recipes later.  I also made pages of ingredient substitutes.  I really need to get some more of the recipes from my family to make more recipe pages!

Cooking with Kiddos


Marissa is always wanting to "help" me in the kitchen.  Last night she helped me to make spaghetti.  She poured the sauce and helped stir it being very careful not to get burnt on the hot stove.  She also buttered the garlic bread!  These pictures will be GREAT to add to the photobook cookbook I'm working on!

Baby Shower Card

I was sooo excited to finally get back into my scrapbooking room last night!  That was until I discovered that my Gypsy had a cracked screen!!!  I was sooo disappointed when I couldn't use my cricut b/c I'd loaned out all my cartridges to my mom and a friend of mine!  My friend did end up having the cart that I really wanted so I was able to get it from her last night and continue working on a Baby shower card for a friend from high school.  The shower is this Sunday.  I was interrupted to go on an ambulance call before I was done with card, but still managed to come home and finish it!  Here's the card:  Sorry for the bad cell phone pic!

VIDEO!

I was pretty sure that I was destined to NEVER be able to actually burn any of my little video clips to DVD, after trying a couple different programs that wouldn't accept the file type of my video.  I'm sure there is some way to do it, but I'm just a little technology ignorant in that department.  Today I discovered Windows Live Movie Maker, came built in on my new laptop, super easy, does JUST what I want it to and then a tiny bit more, I can put all my clips together and create one video with them to burn to a DVD :)  I can even add a Title Page, captions anywhere and still pictures.  I am SOOOO excited, I can't wait to start making my own home videos!  I also discovered that my camera wasn't set to the best video quality and I'm really happy with the result of changing it to the best.  Good thing I got that new 16 GB SD Card!!!
