      How cute is that. I remember after Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast I saw a little squirrel rebuilding his nest in the tree outside my bedroom window. Too cute.

      Not that my son got any awards, but honestly the valedictorian took 17 AP classes and had a weighted GPA of 4.7. There were 23 National Merit Scholars in his class.

      That's insane! congrats to Thomas anyway. He is also smart.

      I didn't even know it was possible to take 17 AP classes!

  7. The son got a new gaming mouse and just gave me his old one. Loving it.

  8. Day three without a fridge. Good thing we have a freezer.

      AggieB

      Have you tried a scrap metal place if the recycle falls through. Best wishes for the new fridge.

    2. April Showers

      April Showers

      Oh, the fridge is fixable. The part is under $30. It was just time for a new one.

    3. April Showers

      April Showers

      New fridge is in the house. :-) Still needs to get cold before I can fill it. Now it looks like my kitchen remodel from 5 years ago is finally complete.

  20. Got to love 60 degrees and sunny in February.

  21. Finished up a Flynn Ryder costume for Thomas to wear tonight. Might have been nice if he'd let me know before last night. :-D Still better than making a formal.

  22. Whew, my 6th year of Project Life is finished. Now to start on year #7. I love these albums.

  24. Cooking my way through Valentine's day... started with Crispy French Toast (baked the bread last night) then I made the creme brulee, and an angel food cake with all the egg whites and just finished dipping the strawberries in chocolate.

  25. I'm on the home stretch of my 2014 pages. Making a goal to not wait so long for 2015.

    1. Ngaire

      Ngaire

      I've been really enjoying seeing your pages April. You are doing such nice job. After seeing todays ones it has nearly inspired me to do an album for this year. Still at the "maybe next year" stage though!!

    2. Florida granny

      Florida granny

      Your pages have been lovely! It sounds like you are on a good pace to finish, too.
