My kind of fun...

We had a really fun weekend. Went to a birthday party where we saw lots of familia that we hadn't seen in a while. My cousin Estefany was down from Reno and we finally got to meet her husband and beautiful baby girl.

Tatiana is finally coming out of her shell. She actually hit the pinata!

Today I've been having fun making some grungy tags for the shop I made these by dipping them into some coffee. And since I couldn't wait for them to dry, I microwaved them for about a minute.
I made these the same way, but I added raspberry jello powder to the coffee to give them a rose tint.
I love making these...I think you'll be seeing a lot more of them at Pink Twilight!

I'd like to introduce you to my son, Adam. He's handsome, funny, smart {I'm talkin honor student, computer whiz, beats every video game I buy him the same day, brainiac smart} and he's a great brother to both of his sisters. He's my movie buddy {he loves star wars just like mom} and he LOVES basketball. He still lets me kiss him goodnight {but never in front of his friends} and I couldn't imagine my life without him...

On a business note, I finally got the camera situation fixed and I guarantee new items in the shop tomorrow.

I'm Guilty...

I had a tooth pulled today {root canal gone bad} and I'm guilty of milking it. I have to admit that I was nervous, but it didn't really hurt at all. I just felt some pressure and it was out. After the numbness wore off I did feel some pain, but I'm milking it! I told my honey and kids that I was in terrible pain and I needed their help all day. I didn't cook, I didn't clean, I didn't do laundry. But I DID take a two hour nap, watched the Gilmore Girls on line {there was nothing good on tv}, had a conversation on the phone that lasted more than 5 minutes, and I got extra hugs and kisses from the kids. So I'm guilty of milking this tooth extraction, but I'm not feeling one bit guilty. But it's back to business tomorrow. My son, Adam {who I will be introducing you to tomorrow}, is competing in the NorCal Science Olympiad and I need to get up extra early to drive him there...good thing I got some extra sleep today ;)

Here are some pix of our Easter weekend. Tatiana had fun hunting for eggs with her cousins.
We went to my mother-in-law's. She lives near Yosemite and the kids always have a blast when we're there. Tatiana got to play with Grandma's new puppies!
Tatiana was a little bit scared of the woods on my mil's property. She thought a bear might attack us. I told her there was nothing to be afraid of because Sadie Love {our German Shepard} would protect us and fight off a bear so we could get away. Then there was a loud sound because my son threw a big stick across the creek
and the next thing I saw was Sadie taking off in the opposite direction. So much for our great protector...but we still love her!
