We had our yard sale this weekend and I have to say, it went better than expected considering it rained most of the morning. (Darn rain!) But, I was able to get rid of some things and I made enough money to buy Maggie a new bicycle.
We took her to Toys R Us today so that she could pick it out. She ended up getting an 18" bike (the TRU guy said that it would be better considering her age and that she'll outgrow the 16" right away). It's really cute - purple with streamers on the handlebars and a basket in the front. We even bought her the matching purple helmet. (I have to be honest - I NEVER wore a helmet as a child and looking back, I cringe at the things I used to do while on my bike.) So, we have a happy Maggie with a new bicycle. You know I'll be taking more pictures soon!
My brother also returned from Alaska and brought us gifts. He always brings us the coolest things from when he travels. He brought Maggie an eskimo doll and he bought me a stuffed husky (since we have a Siberian) and a magnet for my refridgerator. (Did I tell you how much my brother ROCKS?) Anyway, I felt bad because Maggie was napping with Scott when he stopped by so I had her call him and leave him a voice mail to thank him for the stuff. She ended up taking possession of my dog as well. Such is life when you have kids.
I'm headed up after this entry to clean and organize my scraproom. If I spent as much time scrapping as I do cleaning and organizing my stuff, I'd probably have all of my assignments done. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect room.
