High School Musical 3

my kids are all crazy for HSM. they watch the movies over and over and were quite excited to see the third movie in a theater. dave didn't want to go on opening day so the 6 of us waited for our sunday night family movie night to go. we usually watch a dvd at home together, so this was a special treat. there were very few people in the theater and we had great seats. the kids loved it, although it got a little too long for the youngest. i think the music of the first 2 was better and e said the second one is still her favorite. the super cute red and black wildcats jacket that n.l. is wearing was altered by me last halloween. he wanted to be troy bolton so i bought him a running suit and added a hand made felt wildcat on the front and bolton and 14 on the back. pretty crafty if i do say so myself!

it was pretty funny when within the first 3 seconds of the movie the teen aged girls in front of us were gasping at the sight of a sweaty zac efron. i laughed outloud at their reaction. i'm so glad e doesn't pay any attention to boys yet. she is 9 and has girlfriends that are already boy crazy at the same age, yikes!

this man

lately i've been thinking a lot about how blessed i am to be married to my best friend. how fortunate i am to have found someone who makes me happy just by being together. the other night we were on an escape weekend, just the 2 of us. we were watching part of "Almost Famous". there was a quote in the movie that was just perfect for the way i feel about Dave.

"I'm never as good as when I'm with you, when I see myself the way you see me."

yep, that sums it up, he makes me a better person. so very thankful he is mine.
now, i just wish he'd let me take his picture. i got this one on the playground when he was playing with the kids.

I have a secret!

It's always so fun to read on a fellow scrapper's blog that they have some news, but it's not quite time to share it. It usually means they have designed a scrapbooking product, been published or made a design team. I'm so excited to be able to say that i have news that I can't share yet! But, it won't be long. The cat will be out of the bag sometime next week.
