Samantha's Sunday share 9 & 10

Happy St. Patrick's Day! A little luck o' the Irish to you all-

Card uses the Sell-A-Bration set that you can still get for FREE!
Go to my website to place your order

Can't believe that I have slacked so bad on my blogging. I have NOT lost my mojo- I refuse too!!! I have been sooo busy with cookie boothes with Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts Pine Wood Derby, Baseball practice, Weight watchers, work, family, PTA, volunteering at the school, and on top of it all my dad was rushed to the hospital this morning.... AGH!!!!!

So I decided I don't care how late I have to stay up.... I was getting my scrapbook stuff in order on Saturday (whih I did!) and getting some blogging done tonight (here you go)!
Here are some of the events of Girl Scouts during the past couple of weeks-
International Day 2009

Here is my super , wonderful, smart, talented daughter getting her multiplication master award......

oh... and another high honors medallion! (she is our future doctor- she is so interested in Tubercolosis right now- she was talking to the nurse at the emergency room all about it tonight!)

Here are my kids with their Pine Wood Derby cars- Stevie the boyscout, took 2nd place overall and my daughter the Girl Scout, took 1st place over all (well if she could- her's was the fastest - can I say girls rule, boys drool?)

Really we are working with sStevie on dressing and eating- he is much better but doesn't have it quite perfected yet! He ate 4, 1...2...3...4!!!! Hot dogs all by himself tonight!

Then of course with all the busyness- I just want to go to bed and sleep and my husband the party animal (who doesn't have to deal with half the stuff I do.... but is an AWESOME hubby) wants to party so we head off to "The Office" a club in Orange to hear an 80's band called members lonely. I was awake since 3:30AM- so I LOVE this pic of us- not too shabby hey?

Last but not least my lil' guy has a field trip with his preschool to ride the train - so we are off early Sunday morning- this is a picture of him and his teacher Miss Sandra.

That's funny pillow box

Another GREAT Sizzix die from Stampin UP! The pillow box (113446 $19.95) is so cute, fun, and easy. I made this one for my club tonight. After making it I thought how cute it would be as a tooth fairy gift? Which little child would not like this little box stuffed with some $$$$ from the tooth fairy????
I used only orange, WW, and orchid opulence papers
That's funny and Pun Fun stamp set
and all the wonderful SU! markers

Samantha's Sunday Share #8

Hey Hey Hey Hey Fat Man

What is going down doggy diggity? Can you tell what kind of funny/silly mood I am in? Sometimes you just gotta throw your hands up and say I give up. Steven got laid off and we are without any savings left and well- Accountant I can't make an equity payment or the house payment. But we have our health!

We had another busy week with Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and BUNCO (I did win my $10 back thank God- for being the biggest loser!)

Friday we went to Garden Grove to a funeral for our dear sweet friend Horace. We hope you are rejoicing at our Father's feet!

Saturday we had to go pick up 1300 boxes of girl scout cookies Cookies 2 Cookies 2 Cookies 2 Cookies 2 Cookies 2 and then I had my card swap- again the girls blew me away with their creations. Today we went to church- Super Target (The Lactaid milk is cheapest at Target- go figure) and Hiking in Sycamore Canyon. Have to get some activity points in- Fat Man 7 I am a little negative in the points department this week.

On a lighter note today at church our Pastor went over his notes for the last month...

He covered...

Where is your treasure? (Hopefully, you have built it in Heaven and not here on earth)
What are you looking at? What are you watching and listening to?
Who is your Master? (You cannot serve two gods!)
Why are you worried? (If God is for me then who can be against me?)

We are in Matthew- I think it's my favorite book in the bible- not that I have read them all- but I really like it! Have a great week and remember to keep your eyes focused on Him!
