Fay???

We've been watching hurricane Fay for days and it looks like she's finally made her way to good old North Carolina. It has rained steady the entire night and shows no sign of letting up. In fact, we've had a few possible tornado's. Since there is nothing else to do, I've been scrapping away. Like I need a stormy day as an excuse to scrap. Here is a project I did for Christmas.
And here are my handsome boys.
So, I was wondering what method you used to post your LO in your gallery and on your blog. I visit many blogs and the LO's are so plain and legible. Any tips you could give me would really be appreciated.
Have a great day!

And They're Off!

I can't begin to count all the times I was asked, "You'll be glad when school starts, won't you?" Well, the answer is a resounding "NO!!". My heart was torn into all weekend long knowing that today I would hand my boys back over to the JCS system. They had mixed feelings of not wanting to get up early or have homework, but ready to see their friends. Man, summer flies. Here they are showing off their new backpacks. Baby had to show off his too. Thankfully, I still have him for a few more years.
And a quick pose in front of their school...
I can't wait to hear how their day has gone! I pray it's a smooth transition.
Have a great day!

Are You Thinking Christmas Yet?

I know, it sound ridiculous, but I am indeed thinking about Christmas. Everyone's struggling now it seems and this has definitely been a rough year for us so for Christmas it will be mostly handmade gifts. As a result I've been taking tons of pictures of the boys together (I bribe them with promises of ice cream and tub baths in my garden tub!)! I will pick the 12 best photos and make calendars.
I know I'm partial, but aren't these some handsome boys!!!!

They were so compliant. I love these guys! I'm one happily blessed Mama!!

A Few Pictures

We've been trying to walk in the afternoons since it's not so hot and I was able to get this cute pic of the boys.
And a while back I got this one...
That's all for now.

A Little Something

Today, it's all about growing up. This LO is of Baby swinging in the 'big boy' swing for the first time. He is definitely growing up too fast.
Second, can you believe my 8 year old boys rode this water slide?!!!!!!!!!!! They rode it almost 10 times!! They absolutely loved it. Talk about growing up too fast!
Gotta go. Only 3 more weeks til school starts. :(
