Scrapbooks Etc!!!

It really happened! I reached one of my biggest scrap goals and got in Scrapbook's Etc! I kept thinking.. they are probably going to find a better page and nix mine... but they didn't. =) They actually put it in!!! I got a copy at Walmart and opened it to page 97 and showed Adie.. immediately she said "Adie!" She knew it was herself. =)

Here's a horrible (dark) picture But I still love it. =) The self timer was not my friend.. and the dog was running around with Adie's shoes and it was honking me off so this is the best we got...

And here's Adie pointing to it...

She's so proud she's in a magazine.

The funniest part of it is that my whole family has been pubbed now in my big ol' 2 pub resume. BUT it's just Darin's legs. And THE TOE. Yeah, my husband's ucky toe is in Scrapbooks Etc. Why is it ucky? Um, he cut that big toe off about 5 years ago. Pardon me, it was hanging on by some skin. He cut it with a circular saw as he was cuting a circle in the floor for his toilet. Don't worry, they sewed it back on. Only after he sat in the waiting room for like 2 hours with a severed toe. Um, exactly what DO you have to do to get fast service in the ER? Obviously cutting off an extremity does not give you priority. =/ But it's always kinda grossed me out cuz the toe nail is super thick and yellow. But now it's a published toe. =) And I could never be more excited.

Wow! That's awesome! I love the picture of you and Adie. How do you get her to smile so big? I guess it helps that you are a photographer, but my boys hardly ever cheese it when I tell them to!
