1st BIRTHDAY to Matthew!
Today was a pretty fun day. Aric, Ashlyn, and I slept in. Then Aric and I ran some errands before he dropped me off at Ed and Sue's. Sue called me last week to invite me to some scrapbooking workshop being conducted at her house. I initially snickered when I heard, but graciously accepted. I didn't really know what to expect. I was only told to bring $10 and some pictures...so I brought pictures of Aric and Ashlyn.
me just say that scrapbooking is a very elaborate (and expensive) hobby.
Aside from cutting and pasting pictures with captions, there are all
sorts of neat materials you can get to enhance the whole picture preserving
process. The gal, Michelle, who was conducting the workshop brought
along a couple of her sample books, and I was completely blown away
by the creativity and intricacy of making one of these albums! Seven
girls (including myself) spent the afternoon making a page for an album.
Michelle talked us through the process and introduced us to a bunch
of neat gadgets: paper cutters, trimmers, stencils, corner rounders,
circle/oval patterns, tape runners, etc... After completing our page,
Michelle handed out a price list for the "must-haves" of scrapbooking.
I looked at the price list and...*gasp!*...GATDAMN, this is pricey!
Prices start from around $150 to $300! =O
Ed, Aric, and Ashlyn returned soon after the girls started to leave. I was away from Ashlyn for a few hours, but I started to miss her. I played with her while Aric and Ed ate.
the fellas ate, Ed made a phone call, spoke in korean, hung up and annouced,
"Okay, we're going to see Phantom Menace!" We all stared at
thought the movie was really good..but then again, I was incredibly
elated to be at the movies again. hehehe
One main reason I like going to the movies is seeing the trailers for upcoming movies. "Undercover Brother" looks pretty funny, and I was most excited seeing the "Matrix -Reloaded" trailer (since my girls, Ivy and Sarah, were both extras in the movie). YAY!
We picked up Ashlyn around 11:30pm. Ed's mom said she wailed a bit while looking around for me and Aric. Awwww! That's a first! We brought her home and tucked her into bed. She had a long exciting day. *YAWN!* I'm pooped too! Hope you had a great weekend!
