Sunday Share

Since Hannah lends herself to being the center of attention. Thought I'd share a LO of Cody. It's based on sketch #25 from Pink Sketches.
This little rocket ship from Pink Paislee is too cute.

I can not believe that these photos were taken just 10 months ago. It's so hard to see your babies change and grow right before your eyes.

These photos were suppose to be included in the last post. Daddy Daughter Dance...I asked her what was the best part? She said, "The conga line"!

needed to share...

two home run swings...
International Day at school...

status update...

Today my facebook status reads...Shelby McCoy is going to do something drastic.

Here's a comment from my dear friend.

Oh Dear ... What kind of drastic..cut all your hair off, or dye it hot pink? Throw out all of your furniture for new stuff? Get a Venti instead of a tall? Tell all of your bill collectors your sending a IOU until your budget is in the black?

Ok so, here's the answer to your wondering.

This has been a long time coming, a while of planning and gaining the courage.
I'm glad I chose today to do something drastic. p.s. Thanks a million, Renee.

luv'n this....

OMG! So excited! It happened....and it happened here. It's a first. The first for me. Makes me want to create more, more & more.
Can not tell you how exciting it is for me to know that they like my interpretation. Most of all can not tell you how much fun it is to be given a direction and then be able to put your own 'special' spin on it. thanx!

In honor of...

Today is the anniversary of his Birthday.
"Oh, the THINKS
you can think up
if only you try!"
~Dr. Seuss

This may not look to appealing to Sam I am... who does not like green eggs and ham. But to Hannah it was the perfect way to start off the day in a Dr. Seuss kind of way.And if you have a few moments to your little one how much you care.
Click here and be a fun mommy dear.

My Heart Belongs to this Sweet Face...

This challenge# 30 is from the fun & crafty crew...@ scrap mojo?

My heart belongs to _______ (fill in the blank).
The second part of the challenge is to use heart(s) on the LO.
Bummer for me I think I'm a lil' late...the stomach flu messed up all my weekend plans.
on the bright's one more LO done for the albums. : )

Challenge #2

Here's a look see at a LO challenge for "Scrap Outside the Box"'s especially great because the talented {xoxo, ally} won a spot on their design team...who hoo... ally.
The challenge is to use painter's tape. Can I do it? Yes...I can! + a lil' duct tape & packing tape too : )

how many....

How many loads of laundry does my family of four generate in a week?

My kids seem to generate a lot of clothing...spills, sports, dance, pajamas, practices, indecision about what to wear, etc. If Hannah has a friend over to inevitability becomes a fashion show of clothes that end up filling up the hampers.

You can figure a load for all of the bedding for a week and two loads for towels (12 washcloths, two kitchen towels, eight bath towels, and four hand towels), and my family probably generates between 8 and 10 loads of laundry per week. Whoo...that's a lot of laundry!
Below is the stuff I find in pockets etc. Look there's 36 cents? Is that my tip?
