Let's see... My name is Emily, I am 25, married to Chris (who is in the Navy) & we live in Washington. I have 3 stepkids who will be living with us this summer. Vanessa (11), Skarlet (7) & Owen (3). I love them like my own little monster Alex who just turned 1.

Umm, I have been scrapbooking since 2008. Chris and I married in December and I wanted a project to work on while he was deployed so I did a scrapbook of our wedding. I am super far behind but still love to sit down and blast music while working. Every once in a great while it happens.

I adore the zoo and we love to visit with the kids. I lay out clothes the night before and pack a lunch and we make the day of it. The Pacific Science Center is another place we love to hang out. Every time we visit it is new and different. The kids can spend hours there! This summer we live on an island so there are beaches everywhere!! I can not wait to explore and let the kids swim and play. I love this area and all the beauty around us.

I am on the computer a lot. Or at least have it open all day long. It is my MP3 player. I love to watch movies (but can not stand horror), love TV- House, Glee, Flash Forward, Bones, Americas Next Top Model are just a few off the bat. I feel like I have to have music playing all the time. Oh and I read- I read cheesy boy meets girl and they hate each other but by the end are madly in love romance novels. And books about Vampires. Yeah I read the Twilight series but Anita Blake was the original.

Well that is about all I can say about me now... Alex is feeding his milk cup to the dog. Oh yeah, we have 2 dogs. Dumb and Stupid. Ok fine, they are really Maggie and Goldie. Maggie is 3 and part golden retriever and part lab, Goldie is a yellow lab. Off to toss Stinker down for a nap.

This post was all over the place!

I did! I was not too impressed with it though. Saw a lot of it coming from the episode before too. PM me to talk details.

We just went to the zoo last week! Love it and we ended up buying a membership so I’m hoping we go a few more times this year (it’s a little bit of a drive with traffic otherwise I’d be there every week!). Also love House, Glee, and Bones!! I’ll miss having a show to watch over the summer

Yup, I like being able to clean something and instantly being able to SEE that it is clean.

Nope, we dont really get the chance to do vacations. I would love to and have some places on my wish list but for now we stick to day trips.

I would love to head to the OBs and have her remove my IUD now but DH is still unsure about having another one child. 5 kids all together is a lot!

I like to play around with beads and make earrings or necklaces but it is something I get to very rarely.

I mostly listen to pandora while I scrap. I bring the laptop down so I can see the challenges or get inspiration and I just have some mixes on pandora. I like the songs that I know the lyrics to so I can sing along with. There is Shania Twain, Nickleback, RHCP, Garth Brooks etc in there.

Fall! I love the colors, I love the smells, and I love scarfs and hats and mittens and sweaters. And I love the leaves! Oh and pumpkins! And my birthday is in November.

I think my dream vacation would be something like Hawaii. I have never been but what I would want in a dream vaca would be relaxation, spa treatments, fruity alcoholic umbrella drinks, activities for us as a family to explore, time alone with da hubs, childcare, yummy food and great picture opportunities. Oh and since this is my DREAM vacation; I want it for free.

Hmm, favorite activity to do with the whole family. Outside of the house is probably going to the Pacific Science Center. I love how the kids get so excited to go there (and shhhh, dont tell them they learn too) and that the stuff is constantly changing to keep it new. At home I think it would be family movie night. Simple but everyone loves it and we snuggle up together and enjoy.

LOL, the house is a bit crazy with the kids. We just moved back in Feb so it is a bit better now; larger house = more room to spread out the kids! They are good though, I will keep them.

Chris and I were together for about a year and half before we got married.

YES!!! Wanna come help do laundry? Geeze, I can not stay on top of the laundry. DH is finishing painting a dresser I bought off CL for the girls' room and we still need a bookcase in there for the movies, puzzles and books. In the boys' room we need to decorate Owen's area. Alex's already has his pirate stuff up. And I would like to get the chores lists ready for them. Last summer we gave them chores and it worked pretty well I think, just need some tweaking. Oh and I also would like to get some menus planned.

I would love love love to have a little girl. I have been lurking in the "conceive a gender" forum and think that if we decide to have another I might like to try to sway. When I was pg with Alex I wanted him to be a boy... now that I have a boy I want a girl.

Hehe I love the McDonalds pix too.

Yesterday when we were out I fell down a ditch so right now I am resting on a heat pad but will try and take/post the pictures when Alex wakes up. Sorry for the delay.

Any other photo requests??
