I did it!!
New Flair Designs contest!!

Half Full

I have always believed in the power of positive thinking, I just never really put it into action much.  The last 10 days or so I've really been trying to do just that.  I've beenlooking on the bright side and expecting the best instead of the worst.  Lots of great things have happened in those 10 days.  From little things, like finding the perfect parking spot and having the kids fall asleep easily, to big, fabulous things like winning a guest design team spot and winning a $100 prize!! 

Stacy Julien is  my scrapbooking hero.  Actually, she's one of my life heros, too...  She's very 'glass half full' and many amazing things happen in her life.  She's hosting the simple scrapbooks blog this month and she said  LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE CRANKY!   I'm sorry their blog is not set up so that I can directly link you to the right entry (or at least I can't figure out how to do it).  This sentence has stuck with me since I read it yesterday.  Everytime I started to get cranky, I just decided not to!  It really worked.  It takes a lot less energy to be happy :D  Happiness is a choice, if more people knew that I'm sure the world would be a better place.

Today was carnaval at school...  it's pouring out so they didn't do their tradtional parade in town, so all I have are these photos, neither Anthony or the lighting were cooperating but they are still pretty cute!!  Who cares if they aren't perfect, they captured the day!

Go, be happy, by choice!  How can you not be after looking at these darling faces!Jacquescarnaval Anthonycarnaval Philippecarnaval
