Noah had this dog, he was a Chihuahua we found in the Orlando Airport on the way home from Disney. He made noise, barked, the works - but most of all Noah loved him. He thought he was the best. We noticed a few weeks ago that his little foot wouldnt move anymore and he grinded more than barked. I did some research and found a replacement Chi Chi at Amazon, and kept him in my shopping cart for the last few weeks. Well today I had to hit purchase, Chi-Chi finally went to battery operated dog heaven. So, RIP Chi-Chi- your replacement arrives on Thursday.
So I had all these great ideas for the New Year - lose weight, scrap alot, keep the blog updated, etc. But sadly- I've failed at least the first one....and the third one....but the second- I got 9 layouts done this weekend- with the 7 from last time - thats 16 (basic math!) So- I am on my way to 250. This past weekend we did visit the house and nothing has changed-so no new pictures to show. I wish it would get done. Things in the current house are just falling apart- it started with the dishwasher and now the lock on the door is having issues (as in not closing). Last night Noah got a new chair for the table. He is now a big boy and has a booster seat to sit at the table with. It will help when we move and our chairs don't have wheels on them! But, he's doing good with it. He also carries all his electronic friends everywhere with him. They sit at the table with him and they play with him until he has to go to bed (which was NOT early last night)- and they sleep downstairs in a basket (mainly b/c he knows how to turn them all one and it will either freak me out at night OR get stuck in his hair). Either way- he loves 'em.
3 new fish friends arrived last night. A catfish bottom feeder, an orange one with a mickey mouse head on his fin, and a dalmation one. And yes, those are fish, not dogs. I guess once I figure out HOW to photograph them they will be stars here. We are scrapbooking tomorrow and on Sunday going to see the house- can't wait to see what they have done. Hope you all have a good weekend (and a long one for those off on Monday) Judy
And we have been warming up inside. Noah has played endlessly with all his new toys. Especially his Zhu Zhu Pet and his Elmo. He is also particularly found of Chi Chi the Taco Bell Dog and the Weasel (both of which he got before Christmas). These are his friends and from the time he gets up till the time he goes to bed they are on and with him all the time. We have gone through SO many batteries- in fact tomorrow I have to go to Costco to get more or the devestation would be of epic proportions if they didn't run. Daddy also brought him home a Cozy Coupe from Grandma and Grandpa's this weekend and he has had a blast riding it around the house. He takes his animal friends on rides and loves steering. It's hysterical. I, on the other hand have been scrapping. I've completed a total of 7 layouts this year- and we are cropping this weekend so as long as I don't play with all the new toys I might be able to get some stuff done. Here is one of my latest creations for the Disney Book. Also want to congratulate my friend Val as she is Guest Designer of the Month at Papertreyink.com. She won their contest you can read about it here http://grandma-extraordinaire.blogspot.com/. I am very excited for her and her stuff is truly amazing. We have also been packing stuff up around here-and cleaning and organizing. Stay Warm! Judy
I had to write it yesterday and it looked like something out of a space movie- aren't we supposed to be living in houses in the sky with flying cars by now? Guess the Jetson's had it wrong! We had a fabulous/relaxing last four days- even though we did not make it till midnight. We had Christmas at my brothers on Saturday - Noah got a Zhu zhu pet- its one feisty little hamster. But, he loves to chase after it. I guess thats all that matters. Noah also got to play with his cousins (okay second cousins- but whose counting?) and he loved running after them and chasing them. Hopefully in the next few weeks we can get him talking- he says some things- they arent clear yet- but we are getting there. I also scrapped this weekend- got a whole 4 pages down- but thats like one a day! Hopefully I can stay on track- I set a goal of 250 pages to be done and I should easily hit that since I have all of Disney to do yet.
