Monday Musings

It's so hard to believe that this little fellow is fixing to be 3!!! Honestly, it seems like his been 3 for a year now.It breaks my heart that he is growing up so fast. He's favorite saying is "I'm trying to be bigger mommy." and he is trying... way too hard!!!





I got the idea for these invitations from Elizabeth Kartchner's blog.

It's Hip Hop Hangover Time Again!!

Is anyone else feeling summer exhaustion??? We just got back from the beach (pictures to come) and I am dead on my feet!!!! These guys started their day at 7 in the morning and didn't quit til 11 at night. There was the ocean, the pool, the playground, the arcade, crabbing at night, fishing during the day, eating nonstop.... I am soooooooooo very tired!!
Here's a layout I did before we left.
What a fun day this was! We always look forward to picking fresh strawberries every April. For this layout I used the November KOTM. I love this kit!!! It's one of my absolute faves!
Well, I'm off to go see the new Transformers movie with the big boys (Granny will be watching Baby because he's not quite old enough for this movie).

My First HHH

Yea for me!!! It's my first ever Hip Hop Hangover!!! I have been in love with Unity stamps since I saw a Christmas card Chelsea did. I ordered the stamp immediately and the rest is history! I am a full fledged Unity addict now. Here is my layout using my beloved Unity stamps.

Thanks for looking!
Next stop is Tara...

God is GREAT!!!!!

As you know, last Tuesday our male lab, Hershey, ran away. I am happy to report that yesterday (exactly one week later) he is home and safe and very skinny!!! We found him at the pound. We never expected to find him there, but we are so happy to have him home especially DH and the boys!

Life has been crazy around here with everyone home, but hopefully I'll have some pages to share soon.

Simply Ramblings

At the family reunion a few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of sitting down and getting to know a new relative. She married one of my twin cousins about 4 years ago, my twins were in her wedding. We've never had the opportunity to get to know one another because she is a nurse for the military and they live in Texas. She was deployed during the last reunion. Anyway, I really enjoyed talking with her and decided to send her a card just to say hi.

We have just learned that my BIL and his wife have split... again. Love hurts. Marriage is hard. There are days when DH and I want to call it quits, but we don't. I wish they could see that they aren't playing some sort of game. They have a little girl trapped in the middle of their on again off again relationship. The first time, I stood by my BIL. He took her back and although I felt it was a mistake, I tried to support him. Now it's an every other week thing. I just wish they would figure out what they are going to do and stick to it!
All this makes me so much more thankful for my DH!! We actually met in church. I am so thankful that we have a relationship that is centered on Jesus. If it weren't for that, it could just as easily be us who were on again off again.
Here's a layout I did when he was speaking at a church. He does that on occasion. I love this man!!

School's Out For Summer!!!!!!!!!!!!

As I was driving to pick the boys up from their last day of school the radio announcer was talking about how sad parents were that school was ending. What??!!!!??? I couldn't be more happy to get more quality time with my guys!! School takes a big chunk of our day away and I hate that! With that being said, here is what we gave the teacher this year.


I made the pad with my BIA (thank you Jenny!) and of course all stamps are Unity!!

Feeling Toony??

My friend Jenny pointed me to a website a while back where you can take your photos and turn them into cartoon images. I thought it was great!!! I made several different images and then asked the twins what they would do if they were a cartoon. (Baby didn't understand the question! LOL!!)
So what would you do if you were a cartoon?? I would fly!!!
