Week-end scrappy chat 9-29-12

what is everyone's plans for the week-end??
mine is and working on Storybook Circus
not sure about tomorrow since DH hasn't said anything

I"m sticking down the Title section at this moment & since the Title cut had so much glitter I figure the rest of the page needs some too

then I need to figure out the M&G - I know Minnie & Daisy are in one group & Goofy & Donald are in the other & I know they are dressed up circus style but I can't remember what at this moment

still need Barnstormer, Dumbo & then thinking Casey Jr

I also need to pick up the house some

Good Morning, Reddy! It's raining cats and dogs here. My plan was to go to the gym and co-op, but not enthusiastic about going out in the weather. Need to work on my wedding favors. Have 10 in various stages of completion and would like to crank out 10 more before next Friday. Also need to do a small mountain of laundry. Not very exciting, eh?

Good Morning! Today is homecoming so we are off to the game at 11:30 to help set up. Game begins at 1:00, then it is home to get Julia ready for the dance. She is a little nervous for her first high school dance. I need to upload and order more pictures. I have a crop tomorrow so I need to organize myself for that tonight. Need to menu plan and grocery shop at some point today or tomorrow also.

Reddy, I can't wait to see your Storybook Circus pages!
Linda, we are dealing with rain hear also, not supposed to clear until Monday.

Good Morning!

You pages sound like fun. I really like the look of the storybook circus area hat I have seen so far.

Last night I got about 5 hours of sleep between looking after daddy. Now that there are 4 of us we each only need about 2-3 hours of the night each. Dad is much more active at night than during the day.

Yesterday I opened a gift he had mom buy for me. She had gotten this shawl for herself and he felt like I would really like it and get use out of it for church. It is the last present he choose out for anyone. What a special gift.I is a lovely black shawl with silver sparkle all over it.

After my brother get up this afternoon mom and I are going shopping at the outlets 9they are only about 5 minutes from the house) for a dress for me for the funeral and new sneakers.

I will pop in and see how everyone is doing when I have time throughout the day. I can see my dad getting less active each day I am here.

Rebecca

homecoming was always fun for me - my boys really don't care & won't go to the dances so you will have to tell me all about it
the glitter is still drying - there is 2 of the top set & just one of the bottom (I was using up some paper I found - DCVW All About Boys stack that I have had for awhile now)

I love shawls - that sound pretty & sounds like something you can use for a really long time - I love useful gifts - that is going to be great to remember him by kinda like a hug from him each time you wear it

I got laundry going, cleaned up the bathroom (even went thur my makeup & discarded several things that look awful on me & trashed a couple of bottles of perfume that I didn't pay much for - now I know why the were at Dollar Tree) talked to mom on the phone she is painting an autmn scene & enjoying the rain, folded up laundry that I didn't do last week still need to do the whites that are in the basket but figure to wait for this weeks whites to do them.
next up is clean the kitchen
then start searching for what Minnie & friends costumes are

OK got the dishwasher going
also found out what I needed to know

The Great Goofini - daredevil stunt pilot
Minnie Magnifique - Circus Star
The Astounding Donaldo - Snake Charmer
Madame Daisy Fortuna - fortuneteller

only thing out on them is the draw ups so no idea if they will be the same or not so this is going to be place on the back burner until after we get pics of them - hoping the opening will have several come out so this will be a Christmas break project

I kinda think they need a robot Pete to get people in the door(barkers or callers - don't know what those people are called but they get on my nerves at 6flags) - like the Mr Potatoe head at ToyStoryMania

Most of storybook circus is open. I think the store area opens Monday. The 2012 part of the New Fantasyland will be opening on Nov. 19thish. The costume for the female store clerks will be based on a carnival barker. They had a great layout and story on all the new costumes in the DVC files last issue. I saw a story here about the store and saw pictures of it.

Dad is definitely having more trouble breathing and his times of restlessness are getting further between and his communication is starting to be harder to understand. It is so hard to see him this way but I am glad that 3 of us are here with mom for the weekend.

Reddy, those pages are HOT! I love them!

IF Daisy is the fortune teller, she needs a turban with a big jewel in front and a veil around on her bill - I must have seen an image somewhere because I can see it clearly in my mind's eye.

Reddy, love the storybook circus pages!

Kiddos are off to the dance. We had fun at the game today. Our school does a spirit week to kick of school pride. Everyday has a different theme and the students and staff dress up for the theme. Fridays are always school pride and a pep rally, then each grade puts on a skit at the half time show of the football game. They compete for points and whichever grade gets the most gets an ice cream party. The students have fun with it and it is fun to watch.

I saw 2 different things on Minnie - don't remember if Daisy was different or same didn't look to close on hers after nocting Minnie being so different one was more of a ballet outfit the other just showed her top part reminded me of the ladies riding the elephants with the big feather coming off the top of her head
the one I saw on Daisy had a scarf around the top of her head yellow shirt that comes off the shoulders but had a jumpsuit type thing that went over the shoulder like a tank top - then had a cytral ball(sp??)

Mom & Dad came over for alittle while so I pickup the house some more before that (they needed to go over to my sister's house to get avon order but nephews had a b-day party so they came over here to kill time)

so I got nothing else done but made potatoe soup & got bread in the bread machine so supper is going great - just not sure if boys will eat it or not
