Look what I did...

I know it's time to work on a new project when my blog posts don't have a "Projects" label. So I pulled out some goodies and created this. The Stickles aren't even totally dry, but I had... just had to share this with you!

"Truly Adore You" is inspired by an old school Prince song... "Adore". So love, love the way it turned out, can't wait to put pictures in it.

Cody's first All Star game is scheduled tomorrow night. Yippie...and that means another project is coming. I know all you boy mommas want to see more boy projects : )

Bowling Zone

Have you ever been to a bowling birthday party? If your answer is really gotta try it! gotta try it. I never woulda thunk it would be so much fun!
Looky... four cool and cosmic private lanes.

Too cute kiddie bowling shoes...

Bowling balls in every color...

Thank you to the Walker Family for hosting a really fun get-together at Trevi Family Entertainment Center . Happy Birthday Austyn!

2 Speed Racers!

Look at my two Speed Racers! I'm getting 3 thumbs up! This was taken right before the 5th time on Thunder Mountain. Hannah thinks it's so cool that she gets to ride with her mom or dad to tag along. I guess it makes her feel more independant. boohoo for me : (
Dave and I sat out for a few rides...sat in the shade, enjoyed an ice cream sundae. It was a blasted 103 degrees.

We were randomly choosen and each family member was given ... a DREAM fast pass... for the Year of a Million Dreams Celebration. Pretty cool!

my girl with curl...

Hannah will be marching in a parade at Disneyland this weekend along with her cheer group the Young Californians. They will be doing a pom pom and baton routine to Hannah Montana's, Best of Both Worlds. It's too cute and I know so many of you moms who are singing the words right now! LOL

Hannah's participated in this event for the past 3 years and it's magical memory every time. She loves to have the crowd cheer and scream for her! She doesn't even get distracted when her mom makes a fool of herself and waves arms and yells her name. The smile stays constant on her face and she concentrates on her parade routine.

Look at the curl in Hannah's hair below. Kristie taught me the lesson she learned from her friend Yvette. It's amazing that the curl stay put in Hannah's silky smooth straight hair. We've tried countless times with fail. Thank you for the girly techniques.

Thank you...

The Newest Creation...

As you all's been eat, sleep, breathe baseball for the whole McCoy family! Look at my newest creation. Of course the inspiration is only what has been so consuming for many years. Finally pulled out and played with lots of goodies that I've collected for a long time. I likey likey so so much...hopefully you do too.

I'm ready for the next project!

Cause for HUGE celebration!

Oh my goodness!!! The boys played their third game of the Tournament of Champions last night vs. the Lake Elsinore Bulldogs.

It was fantastic...the game went into extra innings with a tie at 7-7. At the top of the 8th inning Jake "STUBBS" Stubbs was given a walk to first base. Cody was on deck as next batter. As the pitches go by, he battles and with a full count 3 balls & 2 strikes. Cody hits a HOME RUN, twenty or more feet out of the Murrieta Park. This is cause for HUGE celebration as it broke the tie and it was Cody's first ever Home Run Hit of the season!! The smile on Cody's face was so bright, it could probably be seen from outer space. And me, you ask? I was the typical baseball momma...with Hannah on my lap I jumped about 5 feet outta my chair and screamed with my arms up in the air! Good thing no one caught it on film.

Right after that hit it was like the flood gates were opened. After Cody, Ryan Edinger hit a HOME RUN out of the park! And the score kept on growing. Final score Angels-11 Bulldogs-7.

It was a tough game and a really good fight for both sides!


Next game is scheduled for Wednesday evening! GO Angels!

Game 2 Highlights

The Menifee Major Angels conquered game 2 vs. the Murrieta Blue Jays. The final score Angels-14, Blue Jays-4. The boys dominated from the start with Cody pitching and Austyn catching defense. Everyone had contact with the ball but the best of show goes to Austyn with a home run hit in the fourth inning. Second goes to Taylor with a great hit to the hole in the far right field. This Angels group was determined and prepared to be the leaders in last nights game. Great job boys!

Kristie let me borrow her camera...thank you! I love it and love taking pictures with it! Here's a few shots.

Cody getting a good lead on first...being aggressive...

That's him #17...
The boys have new hats with their names and numbers embroidered...
And the best photo of all...Sydney showing me what the little sisters do while the boys get dirty!
We're back on the field tomorrow night! WHOO HOO!!

Wow, I'm so happy to have scrapped some photos from a trip I made to NYC with my mom...back in the summer of 2005.
Played with some older Basic Grey papers...Scarlet Letter

What an amazing city, Manhattan is...there is so much to do and see. Central Park, Tavern on the Green, Broadway Shows, Chelsea, Time Square, Soho... Although we took a few cab rides, we found it much more enjoyable to walk every where. In fact, I over did our third day in the city I had over walked and actually sprained my ankle. I'm such a trooper...the metropolitan energy must have got me through the pain...
