Summer, Boys, Food and my Bug

Okay so I really enjoy summer vacation. I get to be home with my boys on Mon., Wed., and Fri. we have just been relaxing, being lazy, and spending time at home ( a rare thing in our busy family). But the truth of the matter is I need to go back to work!! I love being with the boys but they eat too much!! and I have no will power! I have gained 10 pounds this summer, and I am spending too much time on the net buying scrap stuff! I have bought the Cricut Design Studio, 4 Cricut Cartridges, cuttlebug folders, and enough misc. supplies to take me through to next summer!!! My only break in the madness is on Wed. when darling Isabella comes to spend the day with us. She keeps me very busy (though truth be told the boys do most of the work :o). Here is a pic of our little cutie calling Prince Charming on her cell phone. Have a great week everyone......

Our Soldier Came To Visit

My nephew Pfc. Manuel A. DaBranca III arrived home safely from a one year deployment in Korea. We had a short two week visit with him. He is a wonderful, fun guy! It was great seeing him before he had to report to Fort Sill in Oklahoma for another long year. We all went to the A's game to celebrate his 20th birthday and had a BBQ on the the 4th of July to celebrate his son Roman's 2nd Birthday.

Some Scrappy Time

Friday night my sister and I hosted our monthly crop. We had a small crowd so we actually sat and scrapped! Here is a layout of me and my hubby :o). I love the chipboard swirl frame. I have more layouts in progress I will post as soon as they are complete.

Go Earthquakes!!

As you all know we here at the Dones Residence love soccer. This past sat. we attended a San Jose Earthquakes Game. We were VIP guests of Pepsi. The boys went on the field to watch the team warm up, participated in the 1/2 time activity, we had front row seats and they met and posed for a pic with the Earthquakes Mascot "Q". All three of them are cute huh!?! In a few weeks we will be attending another game that time against the LA Galaxy whose star player is M. David Beckham...I am hoping to meet and pose for a pic with him!!! Yeah right! oh well a girl can dream :o)

Twice in a week!!

Happy Fourth of July!! Gina and I made a trip to the Green Tangerine in Rocklin, CA a few weeks ago and took a Cricut Class. Monique is a wonderful, detailed, patient, and talented teacher!! I have included pics of the card and layout we created using the Doodlecharm cart. and the cuttlebug for textured backgrounds. The class was great and we scrapped all weekend I completed 30 pages and had a blast doing it! If you haven't made it to the Green Tangerine, visit thier blog and see why you should!!
