hi guys. so much going on here....once again finding myself saying..I can't believe I haven't blogged in so long!

click all pics to see bigger version




so...to fill ya'll in.

chase is loving first grade. I mean LOVING it! Hayden is missing him like crazy. Chase lost his first tooth tonight (been working on it since the next one is half in already ;) ). Bran had probs with his heart...went to hospital. he is out and said to be "ok" though still not feeling 100%. My MIL (his stepmom) got diagnosed w/ breast cancer last week and had surgery Tuesday. she is recovering. My dad is really sick...not sure what. he is on oxygen and major drugs at home. Other than that...money is tight and I am grumpy ;) My youngest SD turned 17. More neighbors are moving. my laptop's CD drive won't work anymore. My big computer hasn't had it's working in forever. so back up is not happening except to external hard drive...making me nervous. and today my big computer gave me some quick message upon start up...something about FAT and a dirty volume. greaaatttt. I ran all my spy ware and virus checkers (two of each) and it said all was ok...but??? been just a barrel of fun...but we are getting by with lots of hugs, smiles and chocolate. I am just smiling a LOT,l ol.

My only therapy is scrapping...late at night...here are some layouts. don't think I have shared these here...not going to go back and look though ;)






I also have been wanting to get these out to you guys....a goodie....I hope you like them. they are paper piercings. my friend oriana wanted me to make up some using the holes I did for my stitches. here ya go...I had them done like a month and a half ago...just sitting on my puter. I have some more sets I am making.
click here to download...leave me a hello...say a prayer for Gillian (my MIL) Pray that it isn't in the lymph nodes pleassseeee. also... No sharing, selling or claiming. Don't use as lap mat while driving and eating a big juicy burger and onion rings...yummmmmm....I am so hungry. Don't throw out the window in attempt to cover windshield of mad police officer you cut off to get to the drive through of fast food place to buy the items mentioned before. Don't use to write down the bail amount and mail to me after you get arrested and they eat your onion rings right in front of you. you should have just parked silly. (this came ot me after this seeing this crazy lady trying to eat while driving down the hiway. lordy. steering with her knee (not well mind you) and eating the biggest hamburger I have ever seen. window rolled down with music SOOOOO LOUUDDDDDDDDDD. child in seatbelt (small enough to need carseat or booster still) just hanging on for dear life in the back. sighhhh. some people.lol

and don't worry...I am hanging in there...staying pretty upbeat despite it all.

hugs bellas!

Prayers going up for your MIL.

Sounds like you have had a lot on your plate. Sorry for the bad and happy for the good things :) Glad the tests came out good for Bren. Hope they figure out why he is still not feeling 100%

Good to see a post from you, I know how hard it can be to keep up with a blog! If I posted and created as much as I read then I would be all caught up on my layouts! lol Speaking of layouts you sure have put some fantastic ones together!!

Nicole said...

Your LOs are amazing as always. I love that lil punkins one. I'll be praying for you and your family. Hopefully better things will come your way. Oh yeah, thanks for the freebie. Looks like fun.

Good to hear that you are still hanging in there. You look fabulous on the photo from Chase's first school day.
Seeing Tobee eat his birthday cake made me laugh out loud.
The lil punkins layout is sensational, the colors are perfect, great shot and I love that the kids shirts match. They all look so happy. That photo just screamed at you to be scrapped, didn't it?
Thanks for the fabulous freebie, that's a very cool idea.
Have a great weekend, sweetie.
