Jillian lost her front tooth today!

What a gorgeous day in Boston.
Extra, Extra, read all about it, Jillian lost her front tooth.

Nantasket Beach in March

It was in the 70's today! The sun was shining and you could smell the salt in the air from the ocean. Baseball season has begun! I really love this time of year. I took some pics of the kids at the beach in March but they were freezing. I can wait to take more pics when we have another nice day.

Rebecca, Cindy, Geri, Kristen

Look at all those candles

Are all these books for me?!!!

We had Cindy's 40th birthday party. It was a great turnout. There was a ton of food and drink and everyone brought more food and drink! Mary manned the blenders making Margarita's and Daiquiris and best of all it was Girls Night out! I didn't get home until almost 5 AM!!!!!!! Geez, I felt like I was in high school again coming home in the wee hours of the morning. I swore I would never do Karaoke but once I got the mike it was all over. I really think Cindy had a good time. I enjoyed making the invitations and bookmarks. That was some Book Club, heeee. Happy Birthday Cindy!

Is this an April Fools joke?

I know this is a scrap booking blog but I am getting so pissed off about the economy that I just can't help myself. The profits for the oil companies rang in at a cool 123 Billion dollars in 2007 with a lofty $18 billion in tax breaks. That's PROFIT! Everyone is starving while the fat cats are sitting on their money bags. Texas Gold. We are arguably in a recession and big oil is amassing record profits. Congress met today to discuss changing the tax breaks to big oil and guess what Bush said about it? If it passes he will veto it! If that just doesn't tell it all I don't know what does. Bush and his Texas oil boys are so blatant. How about so disgusting. This makes me irate. Is there anyone out there as pissed off as I am about this. How is this not a conflict of interest. How does he get away with it? More importantly why do we let him? Big oil says the prices are beyond their control blaming crude oil and OPEC for the high prices. I say how about them profits boys. How do you explain that?
