Last year's cuties in costumes and tagged twice!

What a crappy photo of this scrap page huh? And I am a photographer? Pathetic! Actually I took this picture last year with my digital point and shoot. This is Kyle as Johnny Depp from Pirates of the Caribbean and Cortney as her favorite food.....Pizza! Get it? 2P's in a Pod? Clever huh? Hopefully I will get some decent pics of them on Halloween. We'll see.

I was honored to be nominated for the, You Make Me Smile Award by Jessica, at Wild Rose Stamper. It is so nice when people are so kind! Thank you Jessica! I have tons of people I could nominate, but I think they have all been chosen! I have so many on my favorites list as well as on my blog roll. The list grows continually! All of you women inspire me everyday! I feel out of the loop a bit these days because I haven't been able to visit each of your blogs daily. With teaching, report cards, parent conferences coming up, and my own children to tend to, life has been very hectic! So I apologize if I am not visiting as often! I try to catch up with you at least once a week!

I was also tagged by Lisa at Somewhere between "Going" and "Crazy, " to list 7 random facts about myself. I've played before, and really I am not all that interesting, but here I go:

1. I have a photography business. Did you know that? Mostly portrait work. I specialize in pictures of special needs kids. I take all the time in the world to get a good shot of them!

2. I met my husband while working the Burger King drive thru at age 16. (Almost 15 years of marriage, and we still like each other.....imagine that!)

3. I worked at a place called Survey Center in high school and though college. Yes, I WAS the annoying girl on the other end of the phone trying to set up focus groups at Navy Pier.

4. I taught at a Catholic school for one year in Chicago. (I actually loved my job, but the pay was crappy!)

5. I have been in the same size clothes since high school. (I think some areas have shifted and gotten saggy, but hey after 2 kids, I think that is quite an accomplishment!)

6. I was in show choir in high school. I wore a hideous satin green dress and had to dance (sort of....if you count what I did as dancing) and sing at THE SAME TIME!!!

7. My worst childhood memory, was when my older sister made me watch the Exorcist. I was 9. After the movie I cried all night and prayed to God that the devil wouldn't take over my body! (pretty sad isn't it? ) To this day I can't watch ANY scary movie! Thanks Lisa! : )

I love the scrapbook page. A great idea to use 2 p's in a pod for your title!
