My Thanksgiving Happy List ;-)

Psalms 92:1- "It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High"

I am thankful for my beautiful children. My husband and family. My great friends that I have been blessed with. My life is not always what i thought it would be. Sometimes I feel like I have to remind myself how blessed I am. The struggles are harder to ignore than the blessings are. Sad but true. Anyway, today I am focusing on the blessings.

Scrappin Sunday Finally!

Its been awhile since I've scrapbooked... I have missed it! Here are a couple of layouts that I did at a recent craft night with my girls! Its good to be back in the scrappin realm!

Here is a two page layout of Nate's superhero birthday party this summer. Love it!

And here is a page that I modified. It originally had two pix of each of the boys... but I rearranged things a little to accommodate our baby girl. Don't I have cute kids? ;-)
And this is Christine's ultrasound page. The paper and color scheme coordinates with the pages of the boys' ultrasound pix.
I have been doing more sewing than scrapbooking lately. I am making bags for some friends and family for Christmas so that has taken up alot of my craft time. I'm holding off on posting pix of alot of those projects so I don't spoil the surprise! ;-)

ALSO!!! I have finally gotten almost all my scrapbook pages into albums!! In case you can't tell, its a big deal. I am headed to Hobby Lobby to buy another couple books while their on sale so I can finish off the pile! Yeah!

all in a day's work...

Here are a few pix to capture the essence of my life right now... here is my precious baby girl. Cute as a button but spitting up all down herself (and often me too).School with Nate... some days are better than others. He is so smart but sometimes really impatient with himself. There are times when he tends to get frustrated really easily.
And last but not least Joe. Poor guy, the communication barrier is really frustrating him (and ME!). He has more of an opinion now than he used to but still has minimal ability to communicate his wants and needs to us. He only uses a couple of signs so there is only so much Joe can tell us. Tempers flare alot around here. Meals are lots of fun. :-P
So there you go. A peek into my daily life. Lots of fun!

Friday Fill-Ins we go!

1. Sometimes, I don't wanna get out of bed in the morning.

2. I'm tired of talking about the whole thing.

3. Small things sometimes add up to be big things.

4. Perspective is very enlightening.

5. I keep meaning to shave my legs.

6. I haven't gotten around to it ...yet.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going to craft night with my girls, tomorrow my plans include wedding pictures and Sunday, I want to relax!
