Some of you asked so here's a little more info about the handcuffing incident. I, somehow, had gotten ahold of some handcuffs (I'm going to assume from one of my stepbrothers.) and decided it would be a great idea to take them to school. There was a boy that was picking on me, I think he liked me, and to return the affection I whipped out the handcuffs, grabbed his arm, and proceed to attach him to the bar on the side of the desk. Needless to say, I got in big, BIG, big, trouble!

1. I wanted to have one kid and now have nine, and I couldn't be happier about that. (ages 2-14)
2. I hate silhouettes (those black paper shadow pictures of people)- they freak me out.
3. I love to listen to my kids pretend play and have conversations with each other when they think I'm not listening.
4. I actually like my teenage son - a lot! He's really fun and cool to be with. So far, the teens haven't been the "dark years" like my mom said they would be.
5. I am obsessed with Diet Pepsi and won't be surprised if one day I bleed DP instead of blood.
Kari, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know your shipping information and which volume you would like. P.S. Kudos to you and your relationship with your teenage son! I have heard, and lived through (sorry Mom!), teenage horror stories so it's great to know that it doesn't always happen that way.
Over the long weekend I got on a bit of an organization kick and found this layout from my Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame entry in 2007.
I wanted to find a way to make a page about Drew and how he pronounces words so along the top row I have, in alphabetical order, the way he says the word and then along the bottom it has the actual word.
It was so fun to read through his words and reminisce about the way he said things. It had me giggling and smiling. It also reminded me that I have to do this with Jackson. He is really starting to talk a lot and not one day goes by that I don't laugh at the way he says certain words.
This is one of the many reasons I love scrapbooking. Without this page I would have completely forgotten such a wonderful and fun memory. Plus I'm sure that one day Drew is going to love looking at this page.
