Piper news and scrappy shopping

Let's start with the Piper stuff first...

Today Piper

*Figured out the Shape Sorter Toy
*Said Dada, and seems to have meant it
*Started a new babble: nya nya (LOL)
*Stood up in the middle of her play pen without pulling herself up (since her hands were full with Elmo and Grover)
*Kinda sorta almost said Mama... but it might have been a nya nya that I misunderstood

Recently she has also started meow-ing... too stinking cute. Of couse she learned this skill from Jack's Big Music Show on Noggin. There is an episode in which Mel the Dog thinks he's a cat, and meows the whole episode. At one point, Jack tries to teach Mel how to ruff, and it goes something like this: Ruff, Meow, Ruff, Meow, Ruff, Meow... you get the point. Piper has been barking at dogs since around her birthday, and now meowing when seeing a cat is new. BUT she also meows when you say ruff ruff ruff. So that's the new thing around our house... ruff ruff ruff, meooow

And I went scrappy shopping today. ScrapArtist is having a big 'ole birthday sale, and I couldn't resist. I got their joint kit with Denise Docherty, my idol, called Express Yourself, Michelle's kit Clair de Lune, Michelle's Acrylic Paint Brush Strokes, Nancie's Schmootzy Alphas (thanks to Gina who has been using them alot recently), Michelle's Distressed Alphas, and Nancie's Bella Stamps. FUN STUFF! Now to have time to play...

On the kit front, I am working on a few... One for Tanya's darlings' birthday, some sort of summer thing, and probably something else that I have forgotten in the meantime.

The worker bees have about a quarter of the roof shingled... and tarps over the rest.. they had to stop early on Friday as the sky opened up and poured buckets in a matter of seconds. A majority of my Tupperware is in the attic catching leaks. They were supposed to return Saturday and work half day, but no dice (no surprise)

That's all from CT today :)
