50TH Post

I feel like I should make an effort to make this post momentous in some way, to commemorate the fact that it is my 50th. But I've got nothing.

The boys broke the shelf on our computer armoire that held the keyboard and mouse. Real pain in the butt right now. I can type with the keyboard on my lap, but I can't let A do it - nervous he'll break it. This is going to be fun, keeping him away from the computer all day!

DH and I had a date Saturday afternoon to walk through IKEA to get some ideas for furniture. We've been discussing all the ways we can use the gift my grandfather gave us in his will, and furniture that fits our family's needs, especially dining room furniture, is on that list. It was so much fun to walk through IKEA knowing that we could actually buy much of the things we saw that we liked!

J has really started singing and dancing along to music. Her favorite toy this week is this Wiggles microphone - she pushes a button and starts bouncing as she sings whatever song starts playing. Cracks me up. She'll do it in the car too, singing along to the Wiggles tape we must play over and over and over again. She even recites what they say in between each song. Very cute, but clearly a sign that we need a new tape in the car!

I leave Friday afternoon for a full weekend away to scrapbook. I love scrapbooking, but I truly love the camraderie (sp?) over the other women. It's so fabulous to get together with a bunch of other women to do something creative. We're all doing our own thing in our own way but are sharing wonderful stories at the same time. I'm REALLY looking forward to this weekend.

Kids will be arriving in forty minutes. Anyone have a good Groundhog Day craft?

Although there's no way I would leave the house this weekend, I sure wish I could hang out with you guys! Do you take non-scrapbookers? :)

Congratulations on your 50th! I got to number 50 on my own blog this week, too!
