And is the COOL PART of Papa's gifts......U see the "bad guys" as Brookie calls them...stole her portable DVD player that had HER "Dora and the Super Babies" movie in it :(:(:(:( .....sooooooooooooo UNCLE STEVE pretended to give Papa Eli "his" birthday gift...and it was the DORA MOVIE for BROOKIE!!! She was soooooooooooo excited!!!!! :):):):):):):):):)

And here is PAPA ELI'S REAL gift!!! LOL!! :):):):):):)

  1. That is the sweetest thing i have ever heard.... Brookie looks so excited to have that video in her possession. That is a cherished moment. I love the layout you made for me... I am excited to be able to post it on my blog... That was a long wait, LOL, hehehehehe. Your layout for scrapping the music rocks... Love the title. Well I love everything about it. The way you put the photos. Sooo cute!

    So happy for you to have your baby back home.

  2. Awwwww....what a wonderful photo of you and the kids! Dora movie was such a cute surprise for your daughter! YOur layouts are beautiful...especailly love the dancing one!

  3. OMgoodness. In that first photo you posted... you & Brookie look like twins! She def. has your eyes! :-)

    YAYAYAYAYAYAY for Adam being home!!!!!! I'm sure that was a very LONG 6 weeks for you!

    Great photos... so cute that Brookie got her Dora dvd back!

    LOVE the LO's & I'm sooooooo glad you were able to do some scrapping again! :-)

  4. SOOOO happy for you Adam is finally home!Enjoy!What beautiful photos and so sweet Brookie got the Dora movie!!

    LOVE all your layouts!They are gorgeous!
    Love U

  5. So glad that Adam is back home :) But my goodness has it been 6 weeks already!! That flew, well for me it did lol.
    LOVE LOVE The hello summer page, love it!!

  6. Hello lovely lady!! Just flying by to say hello!!

  7. aww Julie, i love all the happy pictures and the great layouts. i especially love all that the smileys are back. YaY!
    glad you had a great weekend and that Adam made it back home finally.
    love ya

  8. Hey Girlfriend!!! I have to tell ya you made me all teary-eyed this morning. First your sweet comments of support on my blog had me grinning from ear to ear. Then I pop over here and the first thing I see is that beautiful photo of you and your babes. That GOT me! I am such a sentimental fool and I guess the fact that Keri will be leaving in approx. 6 weeks magnified my ability to feel what you feel when Adam is away. Of course, it seemed like those 6 weeks flew...and I KNOW they had to have drug by for you. I wish I could slow down the next 6...but all is good. Hey, isn't that your line? LOL!

    Another reason I'm so loving these photos is that I know least I think you will agree that I know THIS about you. Despite the horrible evil that has invaded your world lately, I know for a fact that you are aware they didn't take what you treasure most. These photos are symbolic of your most priceless treasures. That doesn't lessen the pain of losing the material and sentimental things, but it is a blessing to know everyone is safe and sound.

    OK, I've blubbered enough. I'm going to get in trouble with my boss if I keep it up. LOL! Know I love you chickie! And your LO's rock...ALL of them!!!!! :)

  9. Such beautiful layouts and what a family you have! Can't wait for the first fave things challenge!
