I got the call from Julie around 4pm to meet her at Fred Meyer's so that I can help her grocery shop. She told me that she was concerned because she was leaking a little. I figured this might be "it" because she was having multiple contractions every day for... Continue reading

With all my pregnancies I have had what are called Braxton Hicks contractions. When I was pregnant with Alex and this time as well, I felt these "practice contractions" starting at around four months. With my first two labors we knew when the contractions started to change, becoming more regular... Continue reading

I wanted to post a scrapbook page I made over a year and a half ago... interesting to read the journaling now that little Kyle is actually here! I made this for a challenge at the Designer Digitals site - create a page with no photos. The topic of another... Continue reading

OK... still pretty slow at this but I will be working to get my posts up-to-date this coming weekend, including the previous post which I never finished. Yes, we had Kyle Thomas on December 29th at 8:38pm. He was 5 pounds 4.5 ounces and measured 18 inches long. He came... Continue reading

Well obviously it has been too long since I have written a blog post. And this is something I truly would like to get into the habit of doing on a regular basis. There are so many things that happen during day-to-day life that I know will be forgotten if... Continue reading

This past weekend Tony was away in California so the kids and I had fun on a beautiful Saturday afternoon washing the car! Of course they like using the hose to spray the car and helping to wash, but what they really like is to play with the bucket an... Continue reading

When I had my Miche Bag party several weeks ago I spent most of the day prior to the party cleaning the house. I guess this is a normal activity to do before having guests in your home. I cleaned off the kitchen island, picked up all the kids' toys... Continue reading

So after that horrible day I decided to clean out my purse, I had to come up with a plan to keep the clutter out! I did a little research the same evening I wrote the blog post and thought I would go with a new purse and one of... Continue reading

We don't really do much for Mother's Day here. Sometimes I will get breakfast in bed, but this morning we headed off to church early where the Knights of Columbus were hosting a free breakfast. Brandon liked the bright napkins they had out and wanted me to save one to... Continue reading

The first Saturday of every month we try to get the kids to the Home Depot Kids Workshop. This is available at every Home Depot and you can attend anytime between 9am-12pm. The kids get a Home Depot apron (the first time they are there) and a certificate of completion... Continue reading

It was kind of funny that right after I dumped my purse and took the pictures of "my mess" and wrote this blog post there was a request for pages for the next "All About Me" challenge from the CT at Designer Digitals. The topic: What's in Your Purse! LOL!... Continue reading

My photography business has been closed for over a year now. But it still has a strong presence in several areas of the house! My office was the home to numerous photography magazines, a large pile of papers related to the business, and a file drawer full of files that... Continue reading

Another layout with recent photos. Brandon wanted to mix "things" together to make an "explosion" so we used baking soda and vinegar! We have previously done the "Diet Coke and Mentos" experiment - which works really well - but this was exciting enough for Brandon, as shown by his wonderful... Continue reading

Can you believe there are only two more months of school? That means summer vacation is right around the corner and it is time to start planning activities to fill up the long days. A fun experience for Brandon last summer was attending a science camp at our local university.... Continue reading

Well now that the warmer weather seems to be staying around we wanted to get something that would keep the kids out in the back yard a little more. They love jumping on the trampolines at their friends' houses so we decided to go with that over some sort of... Continue reading

My purse. What an amazing and horrible mess! It is hard to tell from this picture how much stuff is in there, but just read on... I went to a baby shower last year and they had a game where the lady with the heaviest purse wins a prize. I... Continue reading

If my life were as it should be, there would be no clutter. None. No piles of mail, school papers, bills, or papers waiting to be filed. My projects would be put away when I am done, and things wouldn't accumulate where they are not supposed to. Old clothes would... Continue reading

Well we have a little bit of rain this morning but the sun is making an appearance so hopefully the beautiful weather we have been having this week will continue. The kids have been out jumping on the new trampoline every day and inviting the neighbor kids to jump with... Continue reading

This is what I do. I go to the library with the kids and right before we checkout I look through the "new arrivals" section. Inevitably I will find a book that catches my eye and grab it to continue looking through at home. Sometimes it will be on parenting... Continue reading

Brandon had kind of a rough day today. He was feeling bad enough that I had to pick him up from school at 9:30am but not so bad that he needed to take it easy and nap. It turned out to be just a bad headache so I had him... Continue reading

My first post on the topic of scrapbooking. I thought I would start with one of my favorite recent layouts! Now these are not the best photos - a little blurry at full resolution, but I was drawn to my daughter's infectious laugh, and the bright colors in her suit.... Continue reading

I have wanted to start a blog for a while. But not just a personal blog that only my family or friends will view... Sure there will be posts about my family and scrapbook layouts about my family and friends, but I want this to be more. My husband just... Continue reading
