i'm tired today....*yawn*.....i went to jan's to scrapbook again last night. i am making aaron an album for father's day. it's my first ever accordion (accordian??) album (thanks to a search, i was introduced to shez' scrapbook forum! funny how that works, eh?), and i have to say that it isn't bad for my first whack at it! it's not perfect, by any means...and i'm a perfectionist by nature, but it will just have to do! i also used metallic rub-ons for the first time to 'age' an accordion tag. i'm fairly pleased with how that turned out. now i just have to dig up some pics, print them out if need be, and decide what else i'm going to do. it has four pages, so i've decided to use a page for each of us. (this is still a very weird thing for me...getting used to being a family of FIVE, not three...hehe) i think i'm going to look for a pic of each kiddo with their daddy....we'll see how it goes.

but not only did that keep me awake until well after midnight...then griffin has had a bout of diarrhea and that has made his little bum a bit raw, so he was an unhappy camper and spent the rest of the night with us. poor little man...he's still a bit unhappy this morning. aaron said that he didn't go to sleep right away, which surprised me, because i went right back to sleep after he latched on.....gotta love allergy medicines! LOL poor aaron!

here's hoping for some nice weather today so that i can get these kiddos out of the house to play!!

How cool - did you see MaryAnne's accorian album instructions? They're fab, I used them to make an album for my grandparents. Oh, and the LO on the front page of UKS - in the bottom left corner "Great Grandparents" - that one's mine.

Off to read the rest of your blog!
