We bought a firetruck/car for Matthew today. We have been wanting to get one but were torn on getting one from a consignment store or from the PX. We decided to go the consignment store route and could find NONE, and I mean NONE, around! Usually I see 10 to 15 of them on my way home from work! How could this be!? Well, we really had our heart set on getting him one so we headed to the PX. He LOVES his new car. It makes sounds and lights up too!I finally also finished some projects I have been trying to work on for over a week now. A blinged frame for my friend, Amy, who's birthday was on the 23rd and a rotary frame for my FIL who's birthday is on the 30th. Both will go out in the mail tomorrow. YAY!
Ok, now on to my problem. I am really worried that Matthew is hitting his terrible two's and Rich and I are totally unprepared for it. He is screaming in stores if he doesn't get his way, he swings at us if we take something away or tell him no, he doesn't listen ON PURPOSE and throws temper tantrums ALL DAY.
Conversation between Matthew and I earlier:
Mommy: Matthew please don't play with that marker.
Mommy: No, Matthew, thats Mommy's. We don't play with mommy's scrap stuff.
Mommy: No, Matthew, please go put it back.
He proceeds to go to my scrapbook room and trade the marker for my camera.
Mommy: We don't play with that either Matthew. Please give it to Mommy.
He looks at the camera, looks at me, looks back at the camera and takes off running. Daddy chases him down, takes the camera, tells him no and he swings at Daddy.
Anyone have any advice? :)
Ok I am out of here! Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

Today has been such a lazy day! I love it in some ways and in others it annoys me. Matthew is teething again so he is BEYOND cranky and my dh is so tired from staying up all night that he has been passed out on the living room floor for hours. So its left to me to deal with the little monster until his scheduled nap times. FINALLY he is down for an hour...
I found two pictures of Rich's parents. One taken recently when we all had our family pictures taken together and another from a LONG time ago of the two of them on his dad's old fishing boat, hugging. It brings up such strong emotions in me that I just HAVE to scrap them together :) I will post it when I finish.
Ok enough for now. Need to scrap.

So tomorrow is FINALLY Friday! The beginning of a BEAUTIFUL three day weekend. The weather outlook may be gloomy but it is three days that I get to spend home with my family before going back to work. YAY!! We really have no plans for this Memorial Day weekend. Rich and I have date night tomorrow night. We are going to see Pirates of the Carr. Part 3!!! Orlando Bloom
Happy early Friday wishes to everyone!

It's been a while since I built this blog and made a new post! STAR at Scrapstreet is over. Diana and I made it to round 3. We were VERY proud of ourselves but totally out-talented by some AWESOME girls (and one guy!). As we become more experienced scrappers, its crazy to see the difference in layouts from last fall to now. I will have to post some differences soon.
Can you believe its already the final day!!!! I have liked Jordin from the beginning and have crossed my fingers for her every round. Maybe its because she isn't the smallest girl, kwim? She is beautiful and talented and doesn't have to be a twig. Congrats Jordin!!!!
