Well, some of you have asked for pictures of my scrapbook room, so here they are. I have rearranged a couple of times now and did again just today to include a space for Ani. She is now getting her own supplies and it is time for her to have her own area. I am still in need of closet doors and trim work. We didn't worry with it this winter due to the bitter cold. I didn't want to make a mess cutting the work inside, so I decided we would live without it a little longer. So, here are the pictures. I really love my space, and I love that Ani shares it with me.

I have all my paper along this wall. Does the paper rack look familiar Amy? I love it, so worth the wait. My wood shelves are awesome and special. It was originally a curio that belong to my Mom. The doors had been damaged for years and didn't open properly, so I removed them, cleaned it up and now it is used and more appreciated than it has been in years. I hope she would have approved.
So no Key Largo, but the indoor water park CoCo Key is suppose to have a Key's feeling. We spent the night in the hotel connected to the park and let the kids play. We had a lot of fun and WORE the kids out. when we got home the kids slept for 12 hours straight.
Ani is so protective of Ruston. She watches over him so closely and makes sure no one gets in his way or hurts him. She gets so upset if he gets hurts. I love how close they are. They are really lost without each other.
Yep. Ani wanted a sleep over party. So three of her friends stayed the night. What an adventure. Of, course Ruston was never far away. They had a great time. The basement was totally destroyed by morning, but they had a great time.
While we were singing Happy Birthday to Ani. She LOVES the attention. I am so proud of my little girl. She is growing up to be a good girl, smart, polite, and beautiful - inside and out. What more can I ask for.
No he may not look like much, but for us he is the one to watch. Ani came home a couple of week ago with a paper heart. It had I luv you written on it. This little boy was the author. Our only hope at this point is that Ani still considers Brad in Florida as her boyfriend, so she can't have any others! but - we are watch - closely!!!!
When Jim and Alicia and Dakota came to visit they went to the Strategic Air and Space Museum that is about an hour away from the house. Ruston was a little sick and cranky, so he and I stayed home. They had a great time.
The space and air museum had a lot of really cool stuff. I would like to point out that my beautiful daughter INSISTED on dressing herself. I fully recognized when she left the house that the clothes she was wearing did NOT match. But, I am only the mom. She wasn't about to listen to me! Did I mention she is only 6!
