Fun-filled Weekend-- Lots of Pictures

Friday Night

On Friday Hallie, Reese, & I started our adventure! First, we headed up to Iowa City to pick up my NEW machine for scrapbooking!!!-- the Silhouette. Also, I was in "Heidi Heaven"... the scrap store had just gotten in a TON of new stuff, and I love it all!!!!!!! So, needless to say-- I stocked up! You will be seeing lots of projects using these very soon! I committed myself to do the "Scrapbooker of the Year" contest with Kim... so I have 20 layouts or projects to do and make a portfolio. It will be lots of work, but hopefully lots of fun!

After my stop off in heaven we went and picked up Jessie and headed off to the Coralville Mall for Family Night. It was LOTS of fun!!

We got to ride the carousel ... this is Reese's first time! Hallie loved riding with Jess.

Then it was off to the museum...

Here is Hallie painting a masterpiece.

And playing in the Old Time grocery store.

They have a full Doctor's office, baby nursery, dentist office and ambulance. Hallie played doctor and gave Reese and I the full "rig-a-ma-roo"- including shots!

Thanks for the fun night Jessie!! We had a blast... we'll have to do it again soon!


Wow, we packed Saturday full of activities, too! We started off bright and early to be at the Easter Egg Hunt at 9:30 in Moline. They had an Easter bunny, and the mascots from the Swingers (baseball team) and the Mallards (hockey team). After the hunt we headed off to Hallie's last dance class. (the video was posted earlier) It was a fun little class, but I think we are going to hold off and sign up for swimming lessons this summer.

Saturday night Grandma Carmel came to visit :) She played with the girls and I worked on my scrapbook layout for the March contest at Scrapaganza.


Today we woke up early and continued working on the layout (Okay, so here is where I would post the picture of the layout, IF I would have remembered to take one!!-- I will post it once I get it back. I used my new machine for a lot of it)

I went to Scrapaganza and planned my class I am teaching for the Magnetic Calendar.

This picture isn't the greatest, but at least I took a picture, huh? It is made of galvanized steel, cardboard and paper. I will be teaching it two days in May-- hint, hint, sign up!! :) It will be lots of fun! You can see more at soon-- the pictures on there will be better.
So, there you have it... our weekend in a nutshell.
