I completely forgot to post about our Family Movie Night from two weeks ago! Geez! Look at the pictures and try to guess what we watched. One clue, it wasn't Toy Story.
If you guessed Space Buddies, you would be correct. We saw a commercial for it a few weeks back and I immediately went to the movie store to rent it. (I am trying to broaden ZoÃ«'s movie horizons to include non-animated features. I can only watch so many cartoons, you know?) For treats we had "dog food" in dog bowls (new dog bowls) and drinks in our Denny's rocket cups. That was the easy part. The costumes took some work, but it was totally worth it. I made
helmets out of white buckets I found at Lowe's. I used the Skil saw to
cut out the face holes. (I was pretty impressed with myself after that
one.) We dressed all in white to make sure we looked like astronauts. I
also found a NASA logo online and put in on a storage bin to make a rocket.
It was definitely a hit and you can bet we will be reusing those helmets. I already have two other movies all picked out. I did break out the power tools after all.
Now for some scrapbooking. I've had these layouts finished for quite a while now, but my computer time has been spent in Quicken lately. However, I am happy to report that I am finally done. Whew! Every penny is accounted for and categorized. That makes me happy. Sometimes I wonder though, does a person really need to know how much they spent on lattes the previous year? Or scrapbooking supplies?
Back to the layouts… Have you seen Gina Miller's quick pages? They are gorgeous. I have quite the collection and I fully intend on using them all this weekend. Here are two for now.
And I also finished a few baby layouts. The first is of ZoÃ«. I re-did her new baby page. I couldn't handle the cheesy paper layout any more. It had to go. It is identical to the one I made for Eden, but I changed the accent color to lavender. Love it.
And some of my very favorite photos from the day Eden was born. Love, love, love them. I am actually kind of torn about where to put this in my Library of Memories. Eden's baby book? "All About Us: ZoÃ«" album? (Since it is about her being a great big sister.) My "All About Us: Just the Girls" album? Thoughts?
