A new "toy" and some digi scrappin'

Last Friday, we received our income tax return. We had planned on using it for living expenses...or at least that's what I thought we were planning on.

We have been looking at laptops for awhile now. 1) Brenna starts middle school next year and will be having to use the computer a lot more for homework. 2) I have started Digital Scrapbooking and having a laptop would make that easier on days when I meet up with the girls for some scrappin' time.

I was pleasantly surprised on Saturday while we were at Best Buy looking at the new inventory...previously, the Best Buy guys had encouraged us to wait on a purchase until the new inventory had arrived. Fine with us because we weren't purchasing then. So, while we were there Saturday, Jason told me that we could go ahead and use some of our tax return for a lap top. We had been researching brands and prices, along with all the important specs, so we knew what we would purchase when the time came.

Once we got the kiddos to bed on Saturday night, I worked on getting all of my digital scrappin' stuff loaded.

So, now, here are just some of the pages that I have completed. It is so nice to be able to sit on the couch with my wonderful husband every night, watching tv, and scrappin'.

Hope you enjoy the pages...

Next purchase...modem for wireless internet but for now, we will wait on that. The girls are excited for the laptop to have internet here at home so they can play on WebKinz together.

So girls...I'm ready for another scrappin' day!
