Lookeeeee What I did......

Twice in the same month, I may be on a role. LOL

So I've been trying to get my mojo back... I joined a new site, nothing wrong with the old ones just found a new one to be a part of, got some new kits and scrapped a couple of pages. With Jessi scooting around its easier for me to do things that don't require holding her.

So here is my latest work:

Jessi's First Christmas kit: Frosty Chocolate by Babydoll Scrapz


Jessi's First Picnic kit: Spring Breeze by Babydoll Scrapz


Jessi's First Easter kit: Breath of Fresh Air by Babydoll Scrapz


Ok so that is it for now. Maybe I will get back on my scrapping track now. Hope you enjoyed! Have a great day!

I am still alive!!

Sorry I haven't been on the blog lately. I have a lot going on and have not found the time to do any scrapping or blogging. So I got a minute tonight and decided to update!

The weather is finally getting nice and we can go outside again most days. Baby girl has had a fever for no apparent reason and the doctor couldn't even find out what the heck was going on. She is better now but for about 4 days it sucked bad around here. Taylor and Caden are doing fine. Taylor got his report card the other day and is doing GREAT! I am so proud of him and I find myself telling him so much he is probably tired of hearing it, LOL Caden is learning too. He knows all of his colors and shapes and we (Taylor and I) are working on teaching him his ABC's. Taylor is so proud to be able to help teach him.

With summer approaching and school winding down with this deployment:) we are gearing up for some traveling. I want to see some of this beautiful country. Taylor and Caden are wanting to see a 'real' castle they say. So I have some castles in the plans! Who knows what else we are going to be doing. I will fill you in on all the details as the come up!

On a heavier note, I am in need of some prayers. My nephew has had many brain surgeries all of his 12 years of life. He recently had a life threatening situation and had to have a major surgery. He usually bounces back rather quickly but this time he hasn't. Please keep Rain in your thoughts and prayers. Hopefully he will go home from the hospital on Monday!

Hope all is well with your families and hope you have a great week! Until next time.......

It's Time

Ok, so I haven't done any scrapping or blogging in a while. Sorry! I have been kind of down and we are all sick too. First, it was me, then Caden, Taylor and now Jessi. And it sucks BAD!

We have now started 'the countdown', we have 8 weeks left until the return of Michael. If we were told the truth, that is! So we are preparing the house for a celebration! When Jessi sees his photo she gets all excited so hopefully she 'll know him.

So sickness and readying the house has NOT stopped my camera from flashing so I have lots of photos to scrap. So I was checking some out last night and this is what I came up with. Hope you like them. All work is done with kits from Dee's Delightful Designs.

Until next time............. Have a great day!

Dee's Blog Challenge

Ok 6th folder 6th photo...........

My 6th folder only had 4 photos, so had to go to next one!


This photo was taken in 2007. We were eating at this little place in Kentucky and happened to see the rainbow. We were there to see hubby graduate basic training!

I am supposed to pick 6 people to do this now, but I can't. I don't have 6 people to choose! Sorry!

Until next time, have a great week!

SAD day for us, HAPPY DAY for her

Okay, life has been kinda busy!

So we went back to the states and saw Rosie. She was ok at first. She went home from the hospital because there was nothing else the doctor could do for her and she said she wanted to go home. So we visited with her on the days that were half way good and we had a few good visits. The kids and I returned on Sunday to Germany and last night she passed. Now she is not in anymore pain and she is in heaven where she belongs! She was such a great woman and I LOVE HER so much. She was like a second mother to me for the last 10+ years. It was a hard decision to come back but I had to do what was best for my children and watching their grandmother die I didn't believe was the best thing. They talked to her, gave her hugs and kisses and she was able to respond. To me that's what counts. She told me that I was making the right choice to come home and her opinion was the only one that mattered to me.

Here is a picture of Rosie in 1999:


Here is a picture of my wonderful StepMom and me before my senior prom:


She will be so missed!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't been scrapping in a while so when I get back to work I promise to share them with you all. Until then......... Have a great day!

I know it's been a WHILE.....

Ok so its been a while since I have blogged and one of my faithful followers is having a small fit so here goes...

First off, Rosie. Thank you all for the many prayers and thoughts. She is still in the hospital but she is in stable condition FINALLY! She is staring a bone marrow transplant in the face in the upcoming months, if she elects to do it. She is still undecided about it all. I know she has got to be tired of it all and this has got to be the worst decision to have to make. She has been so strong and her 'fight' is awesome. So I am still home for now, stressed out to the freaking max but I will make it, it's nothing compared to what she is going through!

On to my babies. They are all growing so fast. Taylor is 4 foot tall now and almost 60 pounds, Caden is 3 foot and is almost 40 pounds, and Jessi is a hole 13 pounds!!! WooHooo!! So proud to say that. She's getting so big, she wants to crawl and can't yet. So she gets mad, she has her dad's temper! She doesn't even sleep the same anymore. She can't go to bed at night if the boys are even awake. She is so afraid she is gonna miss something fun I guess! Michael is doing ok, he is so tired of being over there. We are all tired of him being over there. Caden tells me all the time he wants to go back to the airport to go get daddy. It is so sweet and sad all at the same time.

So I haven't been on here very much lately. Been feeling kind of 'down' for lack of a better word! So I have just been surrounding myself with my babies! I managed to get this layout done tonight, it is for Carjazi's Gardening w/Quotes Challenge over at DSG! Hope you like it.

So I hope everyone is satisfied with my update. (You know who you are, LOL) Hope everyone has a great week. Until next time, Have a Great Day!

Ok, so Rosie is still in the hospital. Will be for a while. I can't decide wether or not to go home. It's so much to factor in... Taylor in school, the long flight with the 3 of my babies by myself AGAIN, staying with others AGAIN, no scrapping computer (ok so that isn't as important), ya no all that kind of stuff. I want to go and help out but there isn't a whole lot I can do with the kids and her in the hosital. I have been thinking I could go and hold the house down, take care of the animals that kind of thing, but still not sure what to do. Gosh this is so hard!

Anyway I have been doing some layouts for challenges over at DSG. So I will share them with you. Only a few though, you should check out DSG and see the rest. Everyone over there is so nice and you'd love the community!

He who Holds the KEY.... Just For You kit by Karen Wallace (FYI if you were a member over at DSG you could have gotten this kit for free, it was the petal of the day for December)

My Men...Full Abalone kit by Magick Scraps

Ok these ae just two of what I have been working on. So go on over and join DSG and see the rest and what everyone has to offer!

Until next time, have a great day!
