So, the boys had their surgery and it was a tad rougher than I anticipated! Imagine that! hehe Brandt had trouble with his fluid draining and being uncomfortable. Oh and hearing...he hears everything now! hehe It's very distracting for him. Layne was a rockstar! The nurse had him take out... Continue reading

Just checking in really quick. We have had a really rough week with recooperating, so I am still trying to get my head above water. I did want to share this layout I recently completed. The first picture we took of our new family of 5 after Brandt was born.... Continue reading

I wanted to pop in with another layout that I just finished recently. I hadn't scrapped any pictures of Brandt as a teeny tiny baby, so I had to remedy that. And here's what I came up with. Just look at those tiny feet!!! Gosh it goes by so quickly.... Continue reading

My computer is still on the fritz...but, should be back home from the "hospital" soon. :) Turns out the hard drive was going bad. So, a long time friend of Andy's is getting all the data and replacing the hard drive for us. *whew* A relief for sure. However, I... Continue reading

Well, it has been a long day here at the Wildes house. It started off with a computer failure. My main computer that contains lots of priceless pictures - NYC trip and Brandt's entire existence - is not booting up for me. *shudders* Thankfully, I have a family friend coming... Continue reading

Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments yesterday. A little bit of sleep has helped today and snuggling my sweet boy is always the best medicine. I wanted to share another layout I did this week. I feel like I am finally in my scrapbooking groove! Yay... Continue reading

With lengthy deployments comes "those days" every so often. The thing about it is, they don't jump out and beat you over the head. They just kind of creep up on you and suddenly you are lost to the overwhelming feelings! Sometimes the feelings are sadness. Sometimes the feelings are... Continue reading

I am back today with another page that I created recently. I got these beautiful flowers from Andy for Mother's Day and had to photograph them and create a layout featuring their beauty. :) I seriously had so much fun with those circle stamps by Studio Calico. I had to... Continue reading

Back with another installment... :) Today I am thankful for the faithfulness of my husband. He has been my rock the past year and a half as I have dealt with some very ugly things. I have been stretched in ways I never thought I would be and he has... Continue reading

I apologize for going MIA. The doldrums paired with the end of the school year madness had me distracted and exhausted. We ended the year with: saying goodbye to elementary school for Bayleigh attending graduation attending Bayleigh's last Cool School Players production attending Bayleigh's last softball games dealing with Layne's...

DAY FOUR So, we had an early breakfast and packed the car to head to New Mexico and visit Carlsbad Caverns National Park. We drove and drove while Brandt slept and slept. It was perfect symbiosis. We had the chance to just be two married people having a talk in... Continue reading

Today I am thankful for these two boys! They bring so much laughter and sunshine into our home. And the bond that they already share is remarkable. Brandt just loves his big brother – he constantly belly laughs at the silly faces he makes. And Layne, he loves his little... Continue reading

My life is officially in watchdog status. You see, this sweet little dude of mine started really crawling last night. He previously was army crawling, so it took him a while to get from point A to mischievous point B. However, he got up on all four's last night and... Continue reading

DAY TWO Day two was busy! We decided to head out after a yummy breakfast and drive along the US/Mexico border for a bit (mostly to let Brandt catch a nap). We really wanted to find a park where we could get some good pictures of the Bridge of the... Continue reading

I am finally back. It seems as if I have been in a funk lately. Funk = zero creativity and inspiration (for anything!). I started hitting the gym last week and that has helped tremendously. And having some girl time with some friends and Zac Efron always helps too! *wink*... Continue reading

I am back from my somewhat unintentional hiatus! After returning from El Paso, we have had so much busyness in our lives! The few times I have come to update my blog, I either fall asleep sitting up at the computer or typepad is being ornery and wouldn't load pictures.... Continue reading
