Never Caught Up!



Vacation is almost over, boo! I had so many things I my list to do before the end of the year, some finished, some not. But trying to work backwards on 2007 images and November is T's B-day. There is always a list next year to add the unfinished to.

Weird Things


Alright, sometimes I scrap weird things, but I guess I am hoping that years from now, when one of my kids asks me a question, their scrapbook pages will have most of the answers. What age did my molars start falling out mom?

The Season




Well, the season is coming to a close, one more night to celebrate with family and friends. It seems we all prepare so long for all the holiday festivities and they all end so very quickly. I don't know about you, but it seems like the kids should not be going back to school already next week, one more week please!!!!! We had a wonderful Holiday with family at our house Christmas Eve as well as part of Christmas day.
Thought I would share a few images of my day with more to follow when I get some scrapbook pages completed. After we opened gifts, my husband and I had one more gift to bring out from the bedroom and I am so glad my dad captured my children's faces as we wheeled them out. Their expressions, just priceless and the screaming on the video with be wonderful to listen to for years to come.
Oh, and check out to the right and watch a small glimpse of the images from 2007!

BAKING BUDDIES


The kids had a great time helping one another put
together the gingerbread house and gingerbread tree. They mixed up their icing, helped each other holding pieces, while the other iced and had fun
decorating them with the candy. I was able to just enjoy watching my two little elves in their Santa hats, being Baking Buddies.

JUST A CUTE PAGE OF MY SWEET, LITTLE GIRL.

MOTORCYCLE MADNESS



My dad used to ride Harley's when I was younger and this past summer decided it was time to do it again. He has this beautiful motorcycle that my kids have been dying to take a ride on. Of course I have been reluctant to let them do it, knowing how much they would Love it. But yesterday, I gave in and now of course my kids want us to get a motorcycle. No way!!!!
