Our New American Idol

There HE IS!!! whooooooooo hooooooooo!!!! Congrats to David Cook for winning American Idol. I'm one of his biggest fans. We were so happy he won. For the first time ever, me and Adam both texted our votes in. Not since Chris Daughtery have I felt this strongly that someone should win American Idol.

I'm looking forward to hopefully some scrapbooking this weekend. No ballgames so I really need to get some housework done so I can play in my scrappy area!!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!!

Good Luck David Cook

So, never before -- well I won't say NEVER -- but it's been a LONG time since I've been this hooked on a tv show. I have watched American Idol faithfully this season. I have made a point to make sure, if I wasn't on a ballfield somewhere, that I was tuned in. From the beginning, I picked both Davids (along with Michael Johns, Brooke White, and Carly Smitheson)to be the top performers. It's come down to David Archuleta and David Cook. Both are awesome talents, but David Cook is a performer! He reminds me of Chris Daughtery.

So, my vote goes to David Cook. Rock on, baby!!! Sure hope you're the next Idol!!

Happy Friday!

Can't believe it's Friday already! Amber plays softball at Forsyth County tonight while Adam has his first "Senior" boys baseball practice. Just the kick-off to a busy weekend. Tomorrow Amber has another game and I'll be helping with the all-star cheerleading BBQ chicken fundraiser! Fun times! :)

Sure hope I can get some scrapping done SOMETIME this weekend! We'll see!!

Do You Remember . . .

the first time you ever scrapbooked? I've always kept stuff to scrapbook wayyyy before there was patterned paper and embellishments. But the first time I scrapped the way I do now is quite an interesting story . . .

I had been to a Creative Memories party and was completely sold on it, so I booked a party myself. It just so happens, the night of my party a huge storm came through. I mean a really BAD storm with a small tornado touching down. I had NO idea the storm was heading our way . . . I noticed as I helped the hostess carry in her stuff that it was really black and the wind was picking up. Anyway, just as we were getting started, the storm hit and the power went out. My mother-in-law, who's always been good to come to any parties I've ever had, said "Ginger, I think we need to head to the basement." But noooooo - I wouldn't hear of it - we were going to scrap at my party. So the power went out but we trudged forward and cropped by candlelight. As it turns out, we had very minimal damage at my house, but I found out the next day that the tornado had touched down a few roads over and done some damage to my aunt's house.

Looking back on it, I realize how stupid I really was!! I'll never forget that though!!

Catching Up & Ball Season AGAIN!

So, I'm embarrassed to even come back to this poor neglected blog. I have been swamped this spring with April birthdays, cheer competitions, girl scout camping trips, baseball practices, softball practices, and of course -- BALLGAMES! Funny how time gets away from you!!!

Just a few pictures I would like to share . . . Amber's cheerleading competition took Division Champion in Charlotte on April 19th. We were sooooooooo proud!

Back in March, I was lucky enough to be chosen as GDT for Treasured Scrapbooking. I had a blast, and here's a few of the pages I created with my wonderful kit I received:

I haven't scrapped in over a month and its starting to drive me crazy. I'm hoping this weekend I can cut loose and really have some fun with my scrappy stuff!
