The rest of the pages……..and some family photos, too!

Proud Mommy Moment!!!

Last night we traveled to Dallas for Sarah to compete in her final Bible Drill Competition.  She got a perfect score — missing no calls — and received the award of  “State Winner Perfect”.  She was so excited and especially so since this is her last Bible Drill ever.  Just had to brag on her a little more……….and for those who never heard (before we left for our trip)……….she DID make Cheerleader!  She will be…

Oh, how my life is changing…

Ladies, just gotta tell you that my life is beginning to change more and more each day.  And it is all because of a boy, mind you!!!  Most of you know that Allyson has a her first boyfriend, Zack, and you have seen him in many photos………and some have heard a few too many stories.  I don’t share most of those on the blog, as I don’t want to put him out there in a…

No time to stamp….

I am a little disappointed  that I have had no time to stamp this weekend………but I knew that going into the weekend, and all is well.  I will hope for some days at home this week to create, but I wouldn’t trade the fun times with the kids for anything!  I keep reminding myself of how blessed I am to have the time to attend these events and the physical ability to help out (like I…

Another Criss-Cross Card

I just love these cards!  Do you remember THIS POST from the fall when I first showed them to you?  Here is a sample that I photographed at Leadership in January.  I love the crisp colors and the simple design.  I am unsure of the exact products (since I didn’t make this card) but I think it uses the Pumpkin Pie or Tangarine Tango Prints Papers………..maybe?  Then the blue is definitely Pacific Point, and Kiwi…

Lots accomplished today!

Yes, I got a great deal of little things accomplished today……….such a productive day!  Charles took Sarah to the cave in Georgetown, Allyson and Lindsey were quite busy texting all day 🙂 and the baby was at daycare while they went to the cave.  So, I quickly finished picking up the house (from Christmas decorations that I put away yesterday), finished some laundry, washed my sheets, and vacuumed the house.  The belt broke last night…

Merry Christmas!!!!

It is with great joy that I say “Merry Christmas” to all of you from our family to yours!  We had a very “simple” celebration with family and it made me realize that my “babies” are getting older and Christmas is so different when they turn into teenagers…….some of you have experienced this and know what I mean.  Others of you………not yet, so my advice to you is to TREASURE the laughter and the magic…
