Sunday stuff

hi...guess it's about time for another post. we had a great weekend and a wonderful visit from my in-laws. the weather cooperated and we actually had temps in the 80's. lauren and kati had a blast with their grandparents...well, who wouldn't when they drag with ooodles of presents (thanks kim...kati hasn't opened her gifts yet). ok, some gifts not so good...like the 500 piece puzzles for lauren that took all 5 of us to tackle in 3 days.(that was just one puzzle) still didn't finish. poor terry was determined and spent several hours on saturday finishing the puzzle. oh, and we can't forget the great buy....my mother-in-law picked up this leapster l-max game set for 15 bucks...regularily over $50. ya, well, if we HAD the actual hand held game system that the games GO INTO it would be a great buy (ha ha)....so terry and his dad head to target to pick up the system lauren needs to play the games....it was a good laugh... we had thought about getting this for lauren anyway, it just happened sooner than antisapated. but lauren loves it and i don't mind if she plays educational games...as long as other activities are thrown in and we don't veg for hours on end!
well, the layout i posted on thursday didn't make the cut. looks like i'm not moving on to round 6. little bummer....sounds like the prize package would have been a good one....oh well. i have a theory and an opinion on all of it but i won't go there....
i whipped up this layout the other day. the pictures are from the circus last year in fargo. this is lauren and her cousin sydney getting a ride from an elephant (obviously). the expressions that are on laurens face in the pictures are priceless.....
kati turns 2 this week! we had a mini party for her w/ her grandparents while they were here... nothing major, just some cupcakes. i couldn't even find the candles. how lame am i? i'll find them before the 13th i promise kati!
night....have a good week! k

This is very cute too! The circus was here this past weekend, but I was sick on Thurs and Friday so we didn't get there this year. Too much going on this weekend too. Oh well, maybe next year. It sounds like the weather was really nice there, not too bad here either. Its suppose to get in the 70's today, yahoo!! I'm ready for that! I think your spinning out of control layout was really cute! I think it should have made the cut. The picture was perfect for the title.
