Elli's new love

is her brand new Dora swimsuit! She is just crackin me up with this thing! She wanders around the house wearing it over whatever she happens to have on :) What a turkey! She's going to be so confused this summer when she realizes that it's really for going in the water! I think what she REALLY likes is the material of it! I just can't believe my sweet baby is going to be two on Saturday.... I do not accept!

In other news.... I have been SUCH a bum lately! I had this big master plan to "spring" (even though it's been SNOWING) clean the house before Saturday.... hasn't happened, and paint the bathroom this week.... hasn't happened, and scrap.... really hasn't happened much either! But Elli's in bed, the pictures are printed and hopefully I can get a little mojo back tonight :)

Notes from the crappy blogger.....

Man I did SO GOOD for awhile there! :) So here's my super duper loooooong post to catch up!So the very best new thing in our house for Elli is her "my Lucas"! It all started when my dear internet buddy Wendy randomly sent me a video with her son Lucas talking on it. Elli saw it and LOVED it! She wanted to watch it all day. And that is how two tiny kids started being internet buddies! Now they send videos back and forth and have even sent eachother snail mail cards :) This layout is of Elli watching Lucas' video and blowing him back some kisses! This layout was made with sketch #10 over at Gettin Sketchy!We have some WAY COOL stuff goin on this month over at Scrapcity! We are having our next crop the weekend of the 25th-27th and you for sure don't want to miss out on all the fun challenges, games and prizes :) We have also started a brand new challenge system over there! Each month on the first of the month there will be nine challenges to get your mojo goin! For every one you complete your name will go in the hat for a prize! Woop Woop!

The Mad Hatter Tea Party will begin on Friday April 25th through Sunday April 27th. We will also have pre crop challenges that will begin on Friday April 18th.
