Okay...I REALLY need to do a better job of blogging! It's now November 30th and I'm just now getting back here (eyes rolling at that one!) In my defense, November has been a super crazy month for me. Indoor soccer started up and this year we have all three kids playing, instead of just Zack. This means that three nights a week we are running into Chillicothe to watch games because of course, the kids are not on the same teams (umm...yea....lucky lucky me)
Aside from soccer, Jon has been working like a crazy man and that leaves me to do a lot of things with/for the kids on my own. Add to that Tay's and Big John's birthday party and the Thanksgiving holiday and I barely have time to breath some days!
On a separate note, I got a brand new fridge this month! I've wanted this baby for three years and was stupid enough to tell Jon "no" the first time around so quickly said "yes" when he asked me if I wanted a new one.

Now, the fun doesn't stop there. NOPE, I also got a new (to me) vehicle! Jon and I were talking about it one day and he just up and found a 2006 Yukon Denali XL in Columbus. He found it on a Friday, we went and looked at it on Saturday and picked it up on Monday! And....I just LOVE this baby! So far my favorite things are the DVD player for the kids and the seat warmers (makes cold early morning leather seats toasty warm!)

Okay...I've rambled enough for now. If I find time after working on lesson plans tonight I will add some newer scrapping layouts.

Have a blessed week, all!

Wow...I can't believe it's November 1st!
With everything that was going on around here, October just seemed to fly by. Now we have the holidays to look forward to, along with several birthdays.

Anyway, I have been scrapping...really, I have. Just not like I wanted to, and I didn't get a ton of layouts done in October. However, I do have a few to share (and may get a few more done today if my mojo sticks around!)

This layout was done for a journaling challenge from the October FH2S crop. It's so hard to believe that this picture was taken three years ago! Kaleb went as Clifford, Tay was Hello Kitty and Zack was Harry Potter.

I did this layout fro the color challenge at the FH2S October crop. This is little Miss Taylor in 2004. She wore a monkey costume that Robin Garman loaned us.

I created this layout while dealing with a nasty migraine. The next day I wasn't sure about it (and am still on the fence) but am keeping it as is, for now.

I created this layout for a Scrap Pink Crop over at {SAS}sy. This is Taylor back in 2003. She was just four months old at the time.

This layout was created for the Sketch challenge at the {SAS}sy Scrap Pink Crop. Again, Miss Taylor. She loves pop tarts...a love that started at a young age for her!

Okay, I have a few more layouts to share, but am going to go and do some cleaning and will get them posted later.

Have a blessed Sunday, all!
