Its been a while.....

The last few months have gotten the best of me. Been busier w/work, traveling, Izzy playing soccer, etc and this has been negleted. I will try once again to be better about updating but no promises. I have LOTs of pictures to update but have not done much scrapbooking or other craft stuff in a while. With Christmas coming up, that will pick up since I want to make some gifts for people.

In the mean time, here are some pictures of Izzy from over the weekend when she Trick or Treated at Sea World. She did not want to wear her costume so she just left her soccer stuff on.

She seemed pretty tired most of the day, it was like 90+ degrees out too

Trick or Treat

She did not want her picture with these sea creatures

But she did like seeing the Polar Bear and Shamu

Some recent LO's

Here is what I have done since the last batch I shared:

I started this album in november at a retreat I went to. All I was able to do then was put the paper on the first two letters, taking advantage of Izzy actually sleeping on Sunday, I was finally able to finish it! Just need to print some pictures for it.

some various others

Yesterday was Isabella's birthday, she is growing up so quickly. I dont have many pictures on my work computer but I do have one of her cake that is quite cute. She wanted a scooby doo, little einsteins cake. So I ordered the scooby doo cake from publix and added the little einstein characters for her. She was thrilled.

Maryland and New York

At the end of May, Izzy and I took a trip to Maryland and New York. My friend Bethany was getting married and Izzy was asked to be the flower girl. Since we were already going to be up that way, it made sense to add a fews day to visit family in NY also. Our original plan was to drive (although it would be a long drive just me and an almost 3 yr old) but then I got a great price on some tickets on Southwest so we flew to MD, then from MD to NY, then from NY home. It was great to visit friends and family on the trip. We spend the first few night in Fredrick, MD for the wedding, then drove down to Southern MD and spent some time visiting friends, then a night at my Aunt and Uncles house in Belair, MD before heading on to Long Island to stay w/Christian's Sister.

Here are some pictures from our day in NYC:

Not the best picture but one of the only ones of Izzy and I at my friends wedding

Christian went to NY to visit his Sister all week so that meant more time for me to scrapbook :). I have done a few layouts here and there but had to reformat the hard drive so I have all the pictures on a back up hard drive so someday I will up date them here. But for now, here is what I have to share:

And on another note, we leave this weekend to go to MD so Izzy can be in a friends wedding and hope to visit friends while there too, then go onto NY to visit Christians sister and make a visit to NYC for the day. I am exciting, it will be tons of fun (although probably exhausting). I am bring the camera so be on the look out for an overflow of photos when we get back.

The Beach

Went to Cocoa Beach for a few hours late in the afternoon on Mother's Day. It was really enjoyable. Again, more pictures :)


Went to Seattle, WA at the end of April for a work meeting. It has actually been about 7 months since my last work trip. That might have been a record. The weather was beautiful the whole time I was there, too bad I had to work ;).

Here are some pictures:

Izzy can FINALLY ride Shamu Express!

She has wanted to ride the roller coaster at Sea World since we first went there a year ago. You have to be 38" tall to ride it so she was never tall enough. Finally today she was tall enough (maybe she is a hair short but they still let her).

I even bought the picture they sell you :). She loved it.

My funny conversation with Izzy this morning

So we are on the way to my Mom's this morning. Izzy starts talking about going to Sea World (which she does every day). Starts talking about the different animals there. Then this conversation happens:

I: Shamu has a tail.
Me: Yes, Shamu has a tail.
I: Tigers have tails.
Me: Yes, Tigers have tails.
I: I don't have a tail, I have a butt
Me: laughing, yes, you have a butt.

Then she proceeds to list everyone that has butts (Daddy has a butt, Mema has a butt, Bepa has a butt, aunt tina has a butt, etc).

Last week when I was getting dressed one morning. I had on my bra and pants. Izzy walks in and goes "Mommy you have big boobs and I have small ones". I just started laughing and agreed with her.

I am going to try to write down (via this blog) some of the funny stuff she says and does so I can remember these.

My weekend

Over the weekend I went to GA to goto a scrapbooking retreat. It was lots of fun and I was able to get more done then I would have ever been able to at home. I spent most of my time making pages for my sister to give to a friend of hers getting married this weekend. It's hard to scrapbook without picture though. Here is what I did:

lift the transpiracy and this is underneath:

There are for a license plate swap:
