Just a Little Info

Hello! Just wanted to let everyone know I may be MIA for a little while. My stepmom is back in the hospital and I may be flying out of here soon. She has Leukemia and it is now out of remission and she's fighting pneumonia also. It's a very touchy situation. So I may be away from my computer for a little while.

However, I got a few layouts done... The kits used are all Babydolls Scraps.

Letters to Santa, kit Old Tyme Christmas

Fun Times with Daddy, kit Summer Fun

Football Time, kit Blushing Elegance

Army Caden, kit Sugar N Spice

Until next time.............. Hope you have a Great Day/Week!!!!

Almost Christmas....

Ok, so it's almost Christmas and I am still so not in the mood. Guess it has a lot to do with Michael gone and not being near any family! Not that I want to go back home! I mean don't get me wrong I love my family, but I love my own space too. At home I don't have that!

Well all presents are bought and wrapped and under the tree. Except for Michaels, I am so not leaving this tree up until July! So I will be putting it back up then and placing his presents there like 2 days before he gets home. I am also planning on having a full scale Christma/Thanksgiving Dinner for him and some of his friends if they want to come. After being over there for so long they need some good cooking!

The boys are so ready for 'Santa'. We will be making oatmeal cookies for him this afternoon. They wanted to make 2 kinds but told them santa didn't need that much because all the kids were gonna leave him cookies and we don'twant him getting to full at our house. So they decided just oatmeal! Thank goodness.

Haven't really felt good lately. Haven't been on here much either. Just kind of spending time with them and trying to keep my house somewhat clean! LOL

Well I have managed to get a few layouts done in this sad state I am in. So here they are for your viewing pleasure..............

Ok well I better wrap it up now, don't want to bore ya! Just in case I don't blog again until after.... MERRY CHRISTMAS to all! And if you don't celebrate, I am sorry.. Happy Holidays to you!

10 December 2008


Well it started snowing yet again last night. We were supposed to get 6 inches but we didn't or hadn't yet. It is still snowing but it is a light snow so not too bad yet. I have 'duty' this week so I just came in from shoveling the sidewalk and putting salt out. Taylor and Caden helped with the salt part! They got a kick out of it. I took some pictures of them working hard so will be scrapping them when I can get them uploaded to my computer! It's supposed to snow the rest of today and then stop, so hopefully won't have to shovel all week!

Boys are just playing quietly, imagine that. The people upstairs are louder than my 2 in my apartment! We were raised in the counrty and we aren't that loud! You would think they would have a little more respect than that. But kids these days lack respect! I have always tried to instill that into my kids, not gonna have disrespectful kids ya no! But their mom is loud too. As we all know kids learn from the people that raise them! Sorry about the rant!!!

I haven't talked to Michael verbally in a few days! Gosh I am so ready for this deployment to be over. Typing to him on IM is nothing like being able to smell his stinkie breath!!! We chat just about everynight; if his internet is working that is. Their net is better than it was but it still sucks. But at least he has it in his room and isn't limited to 30 mintues anymore! Maybe he will call soon! I wish the commander would call the FRG and say 'OK get ready for our coming home ceremony!!!' Man that would be great!

Well I guess I better get some house work done while Jessi is napping! Until next time, have a great day!

Happy Sunday!

Ok, so its been a little while, but I am here! It has been kind of crazy around here. Snowing almost every day. We walked Taylor to school one mornng in a foot and a half of snow and it was still coming down hard! Then had to go back and get him a half hour later because they decided that road conditions were too bad and school needed to close. Ok, so my wonder is... since these children were already there why not have classes and the children that couldnt make it don't count it against them. But I guess they couldn't do that. So I had to get Jessi out of bed, Caden all bundled up again and go get Taylor! Crazy day!!! Luckily we had food and I didn't have to leave the house in the car until Friday! And I didn't!!! By Friday the roads were alot better!! Thank goodness, we were running a little low on groceries!

We had another video tele-comference with Michael on Friday, so that was what I looked forward to all week! It ws nice to be able to talk to him and see him at the same time with out the web cam freezing up! We are so ready for him to come home! So is he! But he is over half way now so it won't be long. I have not been looking forward to the holiday season without him! The only good thing about it is another month is gone and closer to him being back home with us! Despite not really being in the spirit of Christmas I have gotten all of my shopping done. I pick up a few little things if I run across them but I have everything I planned! So the kids will have a good one, well as good as it can be without Daddy anyway!

Ok, as for scrappin talk.....
I got a new kit Full Abalone, NOT YET BEEN RELEASED, from Magick Scraps. I sat down right after downloading it and my creating juices were flowing. So here is what flowed out of me last night. Hope you enjoy!

'T'is for Taylor


Sleeping Beauty

Ok, so I hope you enjoyed! Until next time have a great day or week!

My Birthday

Ok, so the 29th was my birthday as many of you know. It started out ok and got better as the day went on. The boys helped me clean the house and we went grocery shopping. They were good there too! Michael called and wished me a Happy Birthday, so that really made my day!!

So I had talked with our sitter about getting some 'me' time, so she showed up around 3:30. I went to find a few more Christmas presents for the kids and possibly Michael. And I ended up buying me a birthday present! If you know me well enough, you know I don't buy me things. But I did yesterday. So I picked up a few more things and out of the store I went. I have been wanting a piercing, so I went to the local tatoo place... they had closed 30 minutes before I got there! Darn it! Just have to wait a little longer!

A friend of mine wanted to take me out for dinner so I picked her up and she bought me a steak! It was really good! We went to this little German restaurant and they cook the steaks where you can see it! Nice little place and its kid friendly, so we will be going back. I got to missing my babies, so as soon as we were done eating, I went home!! We picked up the kids and went bowling. The kids loved that.

Then we woke up this morning to SNOW, AGAIN!!! Snowed its tail off until around lunch, so it has stopped for now!

Here's a layout of me at my "birthday party" at the bowling alley, Taylor took the picture, and my 2 gifts I got myself!!


The kit I used was a collab kit from designers at ScrapProfessor for a birthday present! Thanks to all!!!

Have lots more pictures, but no time to scrap them yet. So you will just have to check back! Until next time, have a great day!!

Thanksgiving Day

Well it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The boys woke up around 8 and were running around doing their thing while I was preparing the turkey for the oven! I had it in by 9 and the rest was cake compared to that cooking time. I got everything done and we ate around 2ish. It was good, but I kept in mind that I am still trying to loose the baby weight and I DIDNOT overdo it. Can you believe it, I could breath when I left my table and I walked away! LOL

Michael was online early in the morning and I got to talk to him for a bit. It was nice to be able to. Just wish he could come home, it gets so lonely around here even with the kids! For anyone that doesn't know.... DEPLOYMENTS SUCK!!! It's ok sometimes, but for the most part, it SUCKS!!! Life just isn't the same without him here! I hear people complaining about their husbands all the time and I say to myself 'At least he is here to get on your nerves!' What I would give just to have him here everyday irritating me again! He's so good at it too!

Well I'll get on with it now.... There's BIG sales everywhere and over at DSG there is even bigger sales! So go on over and check out the store for all of your digi scrapping needs!

Got a new kit and finally had a little time for creating... so here are a couple of layouts for ya....

Man What a Day!

So this morning we went out to walk Taylor to school and it was raining! So we had to come back in for Jessi's car seat and get in the car to go to the school. Like always no parking spot... finally got parked to walk him to class and got soaked! We stayed in the rest of the morning until time to go pick him up. Weather had subsuided and we walked to pick him up. The wind was like sheets of ice cutting through my sweatshirt. So got back and waited on the phone to ring.... it didn't! So the sun popped out and we ran to CMR to check the mail and get a Frap! LOL By the time we came out, like 5 minutes later....... it was FREAKIN' SNOWIN'!!!! And I dont mean a little... I mean wind blowing it in every direction. And we all have a frozen drink in our hands! We got vack to the house and haven't left since! I looked out a little bit ago and it's still snowing!!! Kids are loving it, of course! I did hear from hubby on the net, he just couldn't get a chance to call :( But thank you Internet... I know he is ok and I even got to see him! His web cam worked for about 10 minutes.... a little is better than none at all.

Anyway on to the layouts.......... I created these with the Working Mum kit by Magick Scraps!

Ready to Play

Until next time! Have a good day!! Later!

OK today is here and I have GREAT news! I am a CT for Kari aka Relocated Dixie Girl Designs! Woo Hoo!!! I got this great kit last night and was up until 1 a.m. making layouts. OK, well Jessi woke up too but most of that time I was creating!! So here are the layouts I promised!!

This one is called 'German Pastry'


'Another $10.00'


'My Precious Baby Girl'


And last but NEVER least.... 'My Love'


All 3 were made with Kari's kit Hush. I love working with this kit. I had no problems making a girl layout and definitely not boy layouts.

16 November 2008

Ok, so this is my first time with this blog stuff. So if it's not pretty or interesting enough for you, please give me a chance to get used to it. So I am a CT for Dee's Delightful Designs and hopefully one other. Will let you know how that goes.

So here is a little something I whipped up this morning....

I used a new kit, not even released yet by Dee's Delightful Designs. It's called Cat Paws. The subject of my layout is Moe. He belongs to my sister. He does all kinds of crazy things and I caught him sleeping here. Well we thought he was sleeping, but he opened one eye when I snapped this shot.

More to come later! Have a blessed day!
