Getting Caught Up... with life

Up until recently i was sooooo far behind in the realm of scrappin' for my kiddos.
I was able to go on a lovely retreat to the secluded "Potter's Ranch" with Connie and we had a ball. We met up with some really nice ladies who enjoyed the same hobby. As it seemed we totally brought all we owned in the way of supplies and were still careening behind us to ask a "neighbor" for a loan of theirs. LOL.

The leaves on the above layout were a total "sizzix borrow" from the girl next door (table to the right) and I dearly thank her.

1. Shop from home.
2. Get as many photos on the page as I can.
3. Get as many layouts done as I can.
4. Hand journal on each.

I bammed out 8 layouts! I am so proud of myself for getting them done.

Thanks for looking!

I forgot...

I totally forgot... to bless the documents. I handed them over today and without a prayer for the outcome. I hope that all my hard efforts pay off and the reward will come my way. I put all 6 in pink folders, and handed them over to the smiling woman. "PDRP?" she said. "Drum Roll Please", I replied.

I am so glad it is over. I need to pop open a can of bubbly, for real. Thank God my wonderful neighbor handed me 3 mini bottles this weekend.

Special thanks to... Cathy, Michael, Vivian, Patty, Deb, Lynn, Vivian, & Kim for helping me and encouraging me. What wonderful people each of you are, and I hope to repay you someday.

Nite all. I shall go and bless the documents, post hoc.

Us girls celebrated this weekend

This weekend rocked. We had festivities just about every day. Steve came in town and spent it with us, which was a blast. I was a little worried about Chuck E. Cheese and the chaos that would ensue.... yet it did not. The lil hostess was just great and kept us all rolling and got us out in the nick of time.

Lily turning 5 has been so great, I feel like she has matured 10 fold over night. She loved all her gifts and has been playing non stop since.

My end of the birthday wasn't too shabby. From the "boob" box to the late night smores on the deck by the fire, I feel truly loved and bless by my family and friends.

Here is just a select few of the weekend's pics.

Have a great day, and wish me luck tonight for my 7 students = 14 patients for me. I must be insane for doing this all over again.
