DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MY MIDDLE NAME?
Here are the rules:
1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details.)
Wow... right about now I'm wondering why my middle name couldn't be something like Kay, or Ann, or - better yet - Jo! But it's not, so I'm going to do my best....
M - math geek
I - incorrigible (on occasion)
C - complex
H - hopelessly addicted to scrapping
E - euphoric... when scrapping!
L - loving my hubby
L - loving my two boys
E - eek, I have no idea what to put here!
There you have it! Now I'm off to find eight.... oh my goodness EIGHT people to tag! Are you kidding me? Clearly, I need to encourage more of my friends to BLOG!
Alright... TAG -- Joodie, Terri, Jackie, Chrys, Kary, Morag, Rebecca, Colleen!! Have fun!

20 clean, pruney toes fresh from the tub
seeing a student who just isn’t get it… get it
laughter… in stereo
the love in these goodnight hugs
when Mark calls me from work for no special reason

Your year in the 3-year-old DART preschool was your first time taking part in a Christmas program! What a delight it was to watch you and your classmates, so proudly singing the songs that you had been practicing with your teacher, Miss Laura. Even though you were all a little bit timid (Miss Laura and the other teachers seemed to do most of the singing), you enjoyed yourself and looked so cute, performing with your friends!
After the big show, Daddy and I stayed for the party. Everyone got to ice and decorate their own Christmas cookie. You really loved that part - you were so proud of the cookie you made!
Scrapdango's December kit!
Friday, May 18 2007. Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Arizona Diamondbacks. We don’t go to very many Pirates’ games, but we picked a great one to go to on this night! The weather was PERFECT. The Pirates won, 11-5! Along to enjoy the fun were Grandma Gaydos, and Ryan’s school buddy Jacob and his mom Kathy. I’m not sure that the kids really watched the game that much, but they certainly enjoyed the ball-stadium treats and goofing around with each other. It was fireworks night, so we were treated to a great show after the game – although it was a bit loud for Ryan’s liking. A great evening with friends and family… truly the great American pastime!
Hypothesis: boys (both large and small) like icky stuff.
1 dad (e.g., “large boy”)
2 boys (e.g., “small boys”)
1 garter snake
- capture snake and secure in jar
- examine and observe snake
- return snake to its natural environment
Hypothesis conclusively proven. Subject released to gross out neighborhood moms.
