You are all going to boot my butt if I don't start keeping up in here better! Please forgive me...Monday things should calm down a bit around here!

I am stopping in quickly to see if anyone of you would be so kind as to put Jojo's Strawberry Trifle recipe here so I can have it. I can't find my way back to the March thread to look for it. I copied it down and can't find it and I want to make it for Easter!

MANDI???? Jojo???? Cheryl???? Cathe???????????

Happy Easter to everyone! Will talk to you soon!

Hugs! Tish

STRAWBERRY TRIFLE

2 pints frozen strawberries thawed
1/2 cup sugar
2 8 oz. cream cheese (room temp)
2 12 oz. cool whip (thawed)
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 10 oz pound cake cut in cubes

Drain berries and save the juice. Beat cream cheese, sugar and OJ juice until smooth. Then fold in cool whip. Toss cubed cake in strawberry juice. Don't let soak...will mush. Place 1/2 cake in large bowl and top with 1/2 cream cheese mixture, then half strawberries. Repeat with other halves. Place in refrigerator for 1/2 hour before serving....YUM!!!!!!!!!

Hi girls. I am just checking in for a second. We are not going to my inlaws house for Easter tomorrow so we came today and had a BBQ. I am just checking in for a sec. The kids have been in the pool ALL day- Natalia just got out after being in for 3 hours and conked out right away in the port a crib. I had some crab legs. YUMMY! Natalia had her first taste of crab,she loved it. We are going to be going home soon, Leandra's friend came with us today, and I have to have her home by 7.

Tomorrow we are having Easter at home, which is good because I am tired lol Hubby is cooking the roast.. and I am making everything else lol

Well.. on that note.. I am gonna run. I will try and be back tonight. Happy Easter everyone!

Just a quick check in from me. We went to my inlaws house this morning only to find that they both have the flu so we didn't stay. We did stay long enough to chat a bit and received the news that my mil might have throat cancer. They found a nodule and want to do a biopsy but she hasn't decided whether she is going to do it or not. I explained why she needed to have it done and she still isn't sure. They are "country" people and don't always believe what doctors say.

Katy...we have had quite a few U/S because of the complications. One u/S at 20w said boy, and the next at 22w said girl. Since then baby has been stubborn and has had his/her legs closed. I think we are gonna just let it be a surprise. I do have a gut feeling it is another girl though

Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday... I'm suppose to have our Easter dinner Wednesday....( yeah, me cooking) We'll see,,,My thinking is...going out to eat with the whole ******** family. Makes more sense to me...

Mandi...congratulations!!! Hoping from now till May, things are alot more calmer, you've been through alot with sickness and such. Commend you on your ability to deal with it all. Any word on the bully situation???
Oh thanks for stepping up and posting the recipe for Tishy...I didn't see it till on my way home today...and totally goofed it up...told her 2 tblsp orange juice instead of three, 1/4 cup of sugar instead of 1/2...oiy!!! I was trying to tell her off the cuff...didn't do to good! I make it all the time, you'd think I'd know it!

Queenie Jeannie...well hello bequeathed!!! LOL!! You must scrap thyself in royal garb and crown...Show we princesses your coronation... LOL!!!

Anna, loving the new avi!!! great pic to scrap, thanks for news on Terri, glad things are OK, that she is just busy with life....

Jojo, are you getting photos of your moving activities? I always forget until its too late, kinda like me asking you now is too late! Good luck for a smooth move and transition.

Came inside with a raised hot rash on my forearms, musta got into somethin'. A good washing with soap and water, a dousing with hydrocortizone cream and a benadryl. Hope it helps soon! Good news is I am making progress with the front yard. Oh I got a sunbutn on my neck just sitting in the car yesterday. I am so pale it just takes a high wattage lightbulb to butn me. lol

Hello my dear friends! And Happy Easter even tho it's late at night. I'm sooooo sorry for not checking in but when I get into tax mode the world around has to shut down. Because I ran a business out of the house, everything has to be categorize, balanced, proven, etc. A friggin' major headache! DH pokes his head in every night and asks if its time for me to cook!
And thanks for the concern for him too. He's doing great, wounds are in very tender areas but are healing nicely.
And I leave tomorrow morning for 6 days with my sister. so in the midst of everything else, I was trying to plan a vacation.
I promise!!!! I swear that I will leave all the love possible starting april 17th! I love the LOs, and all the chatter. But I haven't packed, I have a bathroom & kitchen yet to clean. As Donna says ---OIY!

Queen Jeannie--how did you get the throne? I didn't see that.... And Happy Belated birthday my friend!
Katy---Snow???? We finally got a 60 deg day up here. I'm hoping the tulips N of Seattle took it as their day to bloom.
Mandi---do not let those idiots brush you asided with this bullying stuff. I agree with everyone!
Denise--I laughed at how you pulled out the holly bushes. I did the same thing with our ATV--best gardening buddy I've come across. Love the LOs too.
Cheryl--how is Priscilla liking her job so far?
Janie--I have for a couple years wondered about Alex and I'm soooo sorry you had to live thru that. I cannot image the pain!
Donna---what's up? Did you get the purse?
Tish--wonderful digi's! Hope all is well up there. Tell Anne hi for me....I never made it back the VLB thread. Couldn't keep up.
JO- glad everything is going well up at the campground!
Mel--are your planting a full garden or just a patio garden. So glad the tornadoes miss your area too!
Stacey--nice to meet you too!

Ok ladies: here's the requested sketch:
sketch By Abby0317

Hope everyone has a great week and I'll be back Tues the 17th. We are going to Victoria BC, then over the Anacortes WA & the tulip fields in Mt Vernon, then spending a day messing around Seattle, seeing the DS1 & family & then back home. She'll leave Monday and come tuesday I'm scrapping!!!!
Love to you all---

Good Morning Ladies!!!

Poppin in quick...as I chug some coffee to get me running...

Denise...yep, I've gotten some pics here and there. Boxes taking up room in the livingroom...a loaded trailer...which made it up north of all furniture we brought up this past w/e. Not many but a few...My camera is always handy, however... if only I could remember to charge my batteries once in a while...then I might of had more! DUH!

Mandi...hope everything is OK and being hot is just a hormonal variable...and passes.

Tishy...sounds like you had a great time with your family! Wonderful pics on FB!!! Sorry I wasn't able to "get" the recipe to you...My phone doesn't work up north. Only when I get half way home do I "come into range" and am able to check emails, FB, and SB...Then I gave you the wrong info...and late!!! Luckily Mandi came to your rescue...Hope you were able to make it and it was a hit!!!

Terri...nice to hear from you...life does get busy, doesn't it!! Hope all is going well and you can relax on your trip. Sounds like it's going to be a blast!

Mel...soo happy the construction is down the street from you now so you can "hear" the peace and quiet!!! WooHoo on your new roof!! If you come north, we would love to have you stay with us!!!

Donna...when is your cruise??? As much as I have going on right now...I can't help but think....at times, I just want to escape and be on the pOOp deck, sunning myself with an umbrella'd alcoholic concoction, in a coconut, the size of a pumpkin!! Daydreaming is my way of evading the mess I'm cleaning as I go through this house!! LOL!!!

Hello, Cheryl, Cathe, Katy, Jeannie, Anna and everyone...I don't mean to forget anyone...my mind is on the fritz....flitting between what I want to do and what needs to be done... Suddenly I jsut feel soo far behind...I've done soo dang much for months...and yet...there...still...is... so...much!!!!

OK...time to get going...Have a great day Ladies!!!

Cheryl--She is adorable! I need to figure out how to get smilies in a post that aren't the ones here. Do they have to be in your gallery to do that?

Hope everyone has a great great day! And week....
(I told DH last night I wanted to take MY Ipad with me and you would have thought I told him his dog died! I swear I'm getting him his own just as soon as I can!!!!)

Morning girls.. Well, afternoon really!

Denise- I am okay.. have just been vegging out on the couch with the girls (Jessa and Natalia). After my rude awakening this morning I needed to relax a bit. Jessa is home today because of an incident that happened on Friday.. we have a meeting with the Super, Principal and her guidance councilor tomorrow.


Jeannie~ Honestly it doesn't matter if it is a boy or girl to me as long as he/she is healthy.. I have 4 girls and 1 boy now and my boy is my most difficult child (Other than the teenage stuff with Leandra)

Mel, I heard those storms were strong adn that it just poured. Rain is good just not oo much at once.

Jeannie, you crack me up! and Yeh, it is a cemetary but also has a musuem. The founder wanted a happy take on death as he believed in life after death so he created a beautiful serene setting and flat headstones so it wasn't just a rock yard.

Cheryl, a photo shoot in the flower bed- what a novel idea!

Good morning!! I am just now REALLY working on my New Year's Resolution to get back to exercising FAITHFULLY and back to eating better. About time, huh!! I was going to start out with Wii Fit Plus today but had no batteries for my board so I did Wii Zumba instead. Last night before I went to bed, I made some healthy muffins to have for breakfast. They are called Pineapple Upside Muffins and they are FULL of good stuff for you.

Morning everyone.

Mel - earthboxes are fun, ds2 (nico) 1st grade class has a few homemade boxes growing outside their classroom door. The teacher said it would have been easier & cheaper to buy the Earthbox bins instead of making them. They made them out of rubbermate bins, lots of drilling holes, a pvc pipe and a month's worth of time. After seeing all that work & pieces, I bought from Earthbox. The directions alone were scary.

Hi ladies. Back from my OB appointment. Officially on "rest". No standing more than 5 minutes, no vacuuming, no lifting more than 5lbs. I am already dilated and only 33w. If I continue to have contractions as painful as they have been they want me back right away, but if not I have to go back Friday to get rechecked. They gave me betamethasone shots a few weeks ago, so that is already done encase baby comes early, and today I was given a shot to stop contraction. They were going to keep me over night just to observe and make sure I don't start having more contractions but I promiesed them the minute they start up again I will go back in. My friend is taking my truck to get hubby from work since I brought him this morning and am not allowed to drive now. So I will be home! A good time to get caught up on some scrapbooking! LOL

Pineapple Upside Down Muffins:

2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, or pecans (optional)

1 10-ounce can pineapple slices

3/4 cup whole-wheat flour

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 large eggs

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup canola oil

2 tablespoons pineapple juice, or orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, (not drained)

1 cup grated carrot, (1 large)

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

3/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup chopped walnuts, or pecans (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

2. To prepare topping: Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar into each muffin cup. Sprinkle nuts, if using, over the sugar. Stack pineapple slices and cut into 6 wedges. Place 2 wedges in each muffin cup.

3. To prepare muffins: Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.

4. Whisk eggs and brown sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in oil, juice and vanilla. Stir in crushed pineapple. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Stir in carrot, oats, raisins and nuts, if using. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups (they'll be quite full).

5. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and firm to the touch, 15 to 25 minutes. Immediately loosen edges and turn muffins out onto a baking sheet. Restore any stray pineapple pieces and nuts. Let cool for at least 10 minutes. Serve upside-down, either warm or at room temperature.

Thanks Anna! I am trying! I am so glad I have my hubby and my family. They are helping me tremendously. Hopefully baby waits until May. A.J will most likely be going up to mom's for a bit in May since she can't come down here right now. And Leandra has two of her friends on standby (it was made okay with their parents) that if I go in to labor between such and such a date that one friend will come stay and help her watch the two girls, and if I go between the rest of the month, the other friend will come and stay to help her with the girls.

I only have 5 weeks left though so lets hope baby stays in atleast those 5 weeks!!

Cheryl- those sound to DIE for! I may have to try that recipe!TFS!

Thirty-six years ago on this day, April 10, my sweetie and I were married. It feels like we have been together for all our lives. I was just a baby at 20 years old and he was an "older" man of 24, almost 25 - his birthday is April 19. Sad thing is I have an aweful headache. Need to go take a nap and see if I can't shake it.

Here is one I did last night.

Aww, Mandi, take care of you and baby! Nice to have a network of people ready to step in. BTW, my oldest is Mandy so if I ever spell your name that way, you'll know why! I just did it but caught it before I posted so headsup on that one...

Take care Mandi! Both of my boys came at 36w. Went into the doc for the first son, doc sent me right to the hospital. I was 3cm and other stuff, 6hrs 23mins later Henry showed up without any issues other than being 5.6lbs and LOUD. Nicholas appeared, 3hrs 11mins after being admitted for being in labour (duh you think). 6lbs 7oz and QUIET. Ohhh this is exciting Mandi.

Cheryl -WHY WOMAN! OMB they sound delish.

Denise -Happy Anniversary

Finished 2 layouts so far, both for challenges.

Good morning one and all.
I am scrapping a layout I started day before yesterday..can't seem to get it together. Too many ideas and can't decide what to do...it's feast or famine.

It rained non stop yesterday. The sun peeked out for a bit..but not for long dang it. Look what right now is headed our way.
Not again! By Dollscrap

Belated anniversary wishes Denise!

Mandi...Fingers crossed that the new baby waits at least a few more weeks...stay comfy. It seems like just yesterday we were all waiting sor Natalia Rose's arrival.

Yippee Mel...this is gonna be a fun week..waiting for my Fire and my Swirlydoos kit and now a pressy!! Can't wait!

Wow-thems are some dark skies! Perfect day to stay in and scrap!

With all this planting talk I've decided to try my hand at it again. We're getting a few large pots for herbs and cherry tomatoes. The soil down here is horrible...all sand. Plus we have fire ants galore so no way am I digging into the ground. My cousin had this giant pot with all different herbs that was flourishing...made me get in a "planting" mood. Plus looking at all Denise's pictures. I have to keep them outside my lanai due to Krujo...I know he'd eat them. We'll see how this goes =)

Yep thems are some dark clouds...brought a bunch of wind with it too but..it still looks like that..sunny here and cloudy there.
I AM scrapping and I finally finished this after THREE days..of course that was mostly just walking by and looking at it and coming back and moving things around. This is Miss Vicki at age 3...I changed the pic to black and white cuz the red of her leotard didn't go with my "vision" and as it turns out neither does the finished layout.

LOL Jeannie, spelothems is just a fancy word for "cave formations."

Hope those forboding skies keep any damage to non-existant.

Donna, sorry about the garden fever. Good luck and if I can help with anything let me know. Ack, fire ants are terrible things! HATE them.

Mel, cool, cheaper is always better!

Here is the final set of pages for 1964. I included the journaling in the description because some of my firends have touble reading it.

Evening ladies. Sorry I haven't posted all day. I ended up being admitted into the hospital last night. They finally let let me go home around 1pm so as soon as I came home I crawled into bed and slept until now . Everything is fine- Natalia jumped on my bed and landed on my stomach lastnight- caused a bit of pain and bleeding but everything is fine. They did do 2 ultrasounds through out the night- and we DID fine out baby's gender The one tech was persistent about finding out the gender for us. I have to go back to my ob Friday morning. I am going to go put my feet up on the couch. I will be back later from either my bed OR couch depending on whats more comfortable!!

Oh Mandi ---do take care. I take it that you will surprise us with the gender when the baby arrives. Hope he/she will stay in there a bit longer.

Denise- Happy anniversary a day late.

Yesterday I was gone all day. I feel like I missed out on a lot of chatter.

Jeannie that sky didn't look good! Hope it blew over.

Cheryl I printed your recipe. Thanks.

Hi to all.

Hah! Mandi..I hope you will surprise us with the gender now. I am glad everything is ok..what a scare that must've been..take care.


Cathe...it POURED for about 10 seconds then the wind just blew and blew. ...my patio is swept clean and all leaves pushed into a neat pile by good old Mother Nature.

Here is a companion to the Sugar Plum layout that took me 3 days to do...this one took 3 hours...it uses some of the things I created for the other layout. This one is of Roni and a little friend. They both had Big Barbies and tried on the dolls' dresses...and then danced around...Roni's tongue got into the act...cracks me up..she was so shy. Neither of my girls took ballet but when I saw these darling Fairy Belle pps I immediately thought of these pics.

Evening everyone, it was my day at school to help my boys teachers with arts & crafts. Then we had karate & kickboxing, got home around 8, had to go over homework, toss the boys into the shower and now fighting with ds1 over going to bed while I read the boards.

I did do 2 pages today for challenges.

What I'm the first to post???? that is crazy!!!
I happened to wake up at 6:30 and then at 7:00 so I decided to get up.

I'm going to the outlet mall with my sister, Jean and her two daughters Callie & Ann. Ann is expecting her first baby this fall. I'm excited as it is Jean's birthday. They work so much that it is hard to find time to get together. So I'm pumped.

Jo I'm very excited for your day. Drive safely!

Mandi...stay in bed!

Have a great day everyone!
