Yet Another Holiday

National Heroes Day. Not that the government does anything major to celebrate it. No wonder we are not a patriotic people. Sigh! Everyone just looks at it as another day off of work or school. Yippeee! I mean, that's all it is really.

Anyhoo, we just stayed home today. And played with the Wii for HOURS. Yes, even me. I'm starting to get the hang of Mario Party 8 or something like that. Hehehehe. The kids look at me with amazement when I win some minigame or duel. Love to get looks like that. And yes, I still scream my head off when I'm about to lose to one of them or if my little character gets kicked off or punched out of some game ring. Hahahahaha!

Ok, more scraps, just because I want to, hehehe.

The first 2 are layouts for the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race that I joined with Katie the Scrapbook Lady as my partner. She is awesome, especially in the area of journaling! She did the journaling for the first layout below while I did the layout :) Teamwork, eh?

ASDR LO#2 by the SAAVY SCRAPPERS (Katie the Scrapbook Lady and myself!)

Journaling reads: Only in today's internet connected world could two scrapbookers from opposite sides of the world forge such a friendship. We live in completely different hemispheres separated by many miles and lines of longitude and latitude. Our time zones are even 10 hours apart but we manage to have conversations via email and message boards. We read each other's blogs. We have found that we have a lot in common despite our different backgrounds and countries of origin. What a wonderful world we live in today that we can find friendship from all over the globe!

Ranger during his first ever formal lessons in the pool. Look at that poor little face crying his heart out. Awwwww.....hehehe.

Journaling reads: You had your first swimming lessons this summer at Ayala Heights. For the
first half hour, you kept crying and calling me. It took all I had to not go near you just so you would start treading water and listen to Coaches Archie and Rod. Soon, you were laughing while Coach dunked you in the water!!!
