Yup, my baby is 21 and is finally legal! I just scrapbooked photos from his March birthday. It was very low-key because Tina, his girlfriend, was the only one who had the same Spring Break. Besides, Keaton is not one for being the center of attention. So we kept it small and simple. We went to a very good steakhouse for dinner, followed by "Hula Pie" which I made at his request. It is easy and soooooo yummalicious! Buy a pre-made chocolate cookie pie crust. Soften two cartons of vanilla ice cream into which you mix coarsely chopped macadamia nuts (as many as you'd like). Then put the ice ceam mixture into the crust and freeze it until it's solid. Spread one or two jars of thick hot fudge (I like Mrs. Richardson's) on top like icing, then sprinkle with finely chopped macadamia nuts. Oh...now I want one! But I only make it for Keaton upon request because otherwise we would eat it all summer long and would gain back all that weight we've lost! Believe it or not, Hula Pie and coffee make a fabulous breakfast! LOL
I've had quite a difficult time getting photos of my scrapbook pages. I just can't seem to find the perfect spot with the perfect lighting and angles. Until I do, these are the best I have. :(
I "borrowed" this layout from Christy, whom I call my "creative muse." I borrow a lot of ideas from her~but she says that if they're something she has posted on the internet (her blog and SCS) then I am free to borrow it. Thank you, Christy, for your generosity. I probably would never get any paper crafting done without you! For this layout, I "borrowed" Christy's Cape Hedo layout, which you can see here. (I hope you can see it~it's in her SCS gallery not on her blog, so I'm not sure if it's viewable by everyone.) I kept it pretty simple, as that's what my boys prefer. Guess they aren't too keen on flowers and ribbon and pearls.

On another note, I can tell that Spring has arrived because of all of the wildlife cavorting in my yard! I live in the "woods" without any property fences, so animals of all shapes and sizes find their way here. Yesterday, Emma and I saw several cottontail rabbits, blue jays, cardinals, and a very large doe. Where there's a doe, a fawn and a buck can't be far behind. Emma is hoping to see Bambi in my yard! That would be totally cool, as long as A) Bambi and family don't eat the very expensive Endless Summer hydrangeas and the azaleas that we just planted and B) that Bambi's friend, Flower, doesn't tag along. Flower (the skunk) may be cute to look at, but on the body odor scale, not so much. LOL
