And speaking of EDWARD CULLEN! :):):):):):):):):)

Hi all......

This weeks song is up at Scrapping the Music and this time the song is, "Kiss Me Through The Phone".....and I actually MADE TWO LO's for this challenge...ONE of Miss Brookie....and ONE just for FUN!!!! LOL!!! Both were made with NoelMignon.com's kits! :):):):):):):):):):)

Hehehehehehehe.....the first one is a photo that was taken at SISiversary by Nan ... she had brought an EDWARD CULLEN doll (or action figure if U get offended by the word doll! LOL) with her...and just for fun, I had her take this photo!!!!! LOL!!!! I also added some tongue in cheek Twilight hints in here....Like the piano keys, cuz Edward plays, and the "What's for Dinner?" tag....ummmmmmmmmm because he is a Vampire and all!!! LOL LOL LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And this next one I made of Miss Brookie kissing herself in the MIRROR!!! LOL!!! Another photo I thought was perfect for this weeks song!!!! LOL LOL LOL!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And just wanted to send out a little reminder....KIDDIE LIT has extended the challenge for Charlotte's Web until the end of the month!!! Hope U all can play along! :):):):):):):):):) This is a REAL FUN CHALLENGE blog....inspired by childrens books! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

It doesn't have to be a Nikki Sivils stamp either!!! Come and PLAY! :):):):):):):):):):) I made this card for Adam.....he has not always had the easiest time with school.....and this year...he has truly made an effort...and I wanted him to know that me and Brian are really proud of him! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

And let's see!!!!! Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh yes....my dear Jacque.....has posted this on her blog today:

Lovin' this...
The first five people to respond to this post
will get something made by me, especially for you.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make but I hope you will.
2- What I create will be just for you.
3-They say I have a year to get it to you. But I promise it will NOT take that long.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It’s a surprise to both of us at this point.
The catch? You must repost this on your blog and
offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.
So the first five people who post, and are willing to pass it along,
will get a handmade gift in the mail from me.
When you get it, make sure you post a pic on your blog!

1) I do NOT drive!!!! EVER EVER EVER!!! I have never had a driver's license!!!! I have had one dear friend and well....ummmmmm ex-boyfriend that HAVE tried to teach me....and I have SUCH a fear of TRAFFIC that I just can't do it!!! LOL!! Thank goodness Brian got me internet on my phone, so I can browse the web while he is driving instead of watching the SCARY traffic around me!! LOL! :):):):):):):):)
2) I HATE coffee!!!! I can't even STAND the smell of it!!! LOL!!! Poor Adam's Dad...when I was pregnant with Adam, I all ready hated the smell of coffee....but it was worse when I was pregnant...sooooooooo his Dad had to go and buy his coffee every morning at the store....so I didn't smell it!!!! LOL :):):):):)
3) In going along with #2....I ALWAYS start my MORNING with either a Diet Coke or Diet Mountain Dew!!! :):):):):):)
4) I have read the "Twilight" series 11 times each and will be reading New Moon again before the movie comes out in November!!! :):):):):)
5) Going along with #4....I have seen the TWILIGHT movie 22 TIMES!!! LOL!! Would U like me to quote it for U???? LOL :):):):):):):):):)
6) Most people do not know that I am tall...and are ACTUALLY shocked when they meet me that I am 5'9".....they always "picture me short"! LOL :):):):):):):)
7).....and the last interesting fact about me....or weird fact...whatever...I COLLECT ELMO'S from Sesame Street!!!!!! I have to actually sneak them into my back room when Brookie isn't looking cuz she would think they are a PRIZE for her!!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):)

Andddddddddddddddddd if U haven't fallen asleep by now...I wanted to share my MONTHLY photo of me and the KIDS together in keeping with Aleida's tradition of taking monthly photos of her and her kids together!!! I can NOT believe it has ALMOST been a year since she passed away.....*sigh*...... soooooooooo here are me and the kids today! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
