Friday, April 2nd was Green Gramma's 70th birthday. We celebrated with family and a greek dinner. It sure was a "Good Friday."

Saturday, April 3rd I woke up and drove to the airport to pick up Green Gramma's best friend, Shirley, from high school. Gramma had no idea she was flying in from Idaho.

After picking Shirley up, we went to the Original Broadway Pizza in Minneapolis for Sharon's surprise 70th Birthday Party. Since the family started the restaurant it has a lot of memories.

After Amie's birthday celebration I then went over to The Horton's and finished the day with Wayne's family. Shirley, Dana and the boys left early Monday morning. The first weekend of April was busy, but a happy one. I was so happy that Gramma's party was a success and that so many of her friends and our family could make it. The next weekend was my birthday. Stay tuned for my 27th Birthday post.

Pet Rules

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.
Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food.. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate does not stake a claim for it, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years --canine or feline attendance is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1. They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it 'fur'niture.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, they are adopted children who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly.

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3 Are easier to train
4. Normally come when called
5.. Never ask to drive the car
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions
9.. Don't want to wear your clothes
10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and...
11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

Bella and Puckett {1 Year}

So I found this new website a few months ago...www.Scrapblog.com, but have recently gotten hooked. It's super cheap and free to share online. You can also make books out of your albums and there are a TON of options. It is a lot faster and cheaper then normal scrapbooking, but you get the same product. I highly recommend checking it out.

This is what I have been working on and is my first official Scrapblog:
