i am back...

I have pretty busy getting ready for Ivy to come.. and just have not had the energy to do much else. and my camera is not taking pictures for some reason. David and I took Jameson to the pumpkin patch with her school and none of the pictures were taken.. i was very upset.. so don't know if it is the camera or the chip.. Last week we went to Athens for the weekend and it was just so nice to relax and eat and enjoy the grandparents. and of course the varisty.. we even ate there for a change.. and david enjoyed it this time..

Cole is at his cub scout camping this weekend.. what a great weekend for that.. so i am anxious to see how much fun he had.. he went with his dad and his step brother so i know he had a great time with the boys only thing..

Rachael sorry i don't have any pictures but i will try and update more often..
Didn't know you enjoyed my blog and made you feel like home.. gosh i miss you..

will be back soon with pictures of the nursery when i get done with it and some photos of the kids.. i promise..

Happy anniversary to us..

Yeah well it is our 4th anniversary today.. we are not doing anything special just a steak on the grill and sweet potatoes.. david has to work tonight.. and plus i am just not up to doing anything..i am so tired ..

went and put some stuff on lay away today.. put a crib and a rocking chair i have been eyeing for a while. the crib i am not really happy about because we already have one but it is missing a part and i cannot get it so going to get Ivy a new crib.. and the last crib for us.. and i put some cloths on lay away for her also.. i needed some gowns and onsises for her.. all the ones from Jameson were stained really bad.. and i got a moses basket also and a red and black diaper bag.. i have been really looking for a diaper bag that doesn't look like a diaper bag and i can use it when she outgrows it too.. especially around game time.. looks like a purse.. David is trying to paint her room a light green color but it just looks really bad.. alot of holes he didn't fill up and it just looks really bad.. don't know he is going to do about the walls but i know it really looks trashy.. so now i am trying to find bedding for her room now.. haven't found anything i really like yet.. okay enough baby talk..

Speaking of the dawgs i am really disappointed in there performance saturday.. they just could not catch the Damn ball.. i know why though.. i didn't have any black olives saturday.. thought i had a can but did not and that was a bad vibe already before the game even started.. oh well there is always next time.

okay later everyone..

Happy September

well things are going great this weekend.. Georgia won there football game and guess who lost.. Tennessee...

I love September that means college football and it is getting cooler.. and getting closer to Ivy coming to our lives.. so we are trying to get her room fixed and trying to find the screws for the crib.. i really don't want to buy another crib.. i have my eyes on a chair that is a rocking chair with an ottoman.. david is going to paint the room too a light green color. so gotta look for bedding next..

and i got some layouts done too.. i am really excited about the So Hot one because i usually do layouts of the kids and this one is just different for me and it was fun at the same time..

Later dawgs...

We are trying to get her room together and have the paint color i want just have to get the paint and HOPEFULLY david will paint her room since i can't paint her room.. then put everything together.. i went through all Jamesons cloths and can't find alot of her cloths.. and threw out some stuff that was soiled so have some shopping to do.. gotta get a boppy cause i gave mine to Jennifer and James.. and of course diapers.. the kids are realizing it is going to be a girl now.. and hopefully Cole can deal with the baby not being a boy.. i think he will be fine.. i just tell him he is my special boy and i was meant to only have him for a son.. (i am gonna cry).... okay later everyone..

We found out last week we are going to have a baby girl.. her name is going to be IVY RUTH..

Just Ivy though middle name Ruth.. everyone i have asked loved it so that made me feel so much better about her name.. and it isn't long either which makes it better when you are calling Jameson so is some layouts i have been doing lately..

Friday, June 22, 2007

been creative lately

i love this picture of jameson.. she had her new sunglasses and wanted a picture taken with them on.. this is also a challenge i did with ONE LITTLE WORD BLOG.. The word is MY.. so thought this was a great title for my little girl...
this is cole and jameson fishing a couple of weeks ago.. david took this picture and i loved it so much.. had to get the one hour photo on this so i could do this layout.. jameson had dropped her fishing pole in the water and david never found it so i am thinking she sat with cole while he fished..

i do have more of these pond pictures i will post sometime soon.. this weekend is going to be crazy and i am not going to have time to post them maybe on monday i can..

some recent layouts

The first one is of cole at sandys pool last year.. i hand sewn all of it on the page.. took me a long time but well worth it.. this is one of my favs..

The second is of my grandma thomas.. this one i have been wanting to do for a while. and these are the only pictures i have with my grandma and cole..

The third is my pregnancy journal.. with every pregnancy i have a journal.. it is a way to keep track of the progress and i love to go back and read things that happened because we all quickly forget the past..

The fourth is pinwheels.. i have been loving this picture of cole for so long and finally figured out what i wanted to do.. the little triangles are photo corners that i put together..

so this is what i have been up to lately.. trying to stay cool and getting things done with the kids and my scrapbook pages.. gotta get as much as i can do now before the baby gets here and then i really won't have time for scrapbooking.. and i will be doing more on the new baby than the kids so.. i am really trying to get coles baby pictures done.. it seems like i don't have enough of him when he was little so doing what i can find and what i have.. so if you do have any please let me borrow them so i can scan them and scrapbook them..

it rained this weekend!!

Saturday we went to savannah to pick up our prepared meals from supper studio.. got some really good meals..
we had our first meal saturday night.. really good stuff.. it rained on us the whole time we were in savannah.. we wanted to look at some cars but it rained so hard we just could not look inside or anything.. we would get soaked just to go out and look at one for a minute or two.. so not good.. so we came home and the kids and david played outside in the rain.. i got some really good pictures of them throwing mud and jameson in her underware playing in the rain.. really cute

I am feeling better.. i got some different medicine that doesn't make me sit inside and not go out in the sun either.. richard and lillian have a pool and i haven't been able to go swimming because of the meds i was taking.. got those changed but i haven't had to take it because i really don't have it much.. i did have some cramps and some sickness sunday.. not sure why.. but i feel good today so that is a good thing.. just taking it day by day with the morning sickness..

By the way if you aren't watching Soprano then what are you watching?? oh my goodness i was shocked last night..i can't wait till next sunday when the finale of this show and that is it..i am a little sad.. well very sad.. on memorial day i was not feeling well and i watched sopranos all day long till i went to sleep monday night watching reruns of this show on A&E.. i love this show. not as much as LOST but it is my second place.. it is one of the best shows ever on TV..

here are some pics

so i am tired and i am nauseas most of the morning and daytime.. more tired in the daytime.. i have been napping as much as i can.. and i am not working as much because of my hands.. hoping my obgyn will let me go to the chiroprator for my neck.. the doctor said i had something to do with a disk so i gotta get the okay from my obgyn first...

it is smoky here!!!!!

the fires are still burning in waycross.. and right now we are getting some smoke from somewhere.. i thought it was at my in laws house went down there to check and there is nothing burning there.. thank goodness.. i get a little worried being around all these fields that they could catch on fire real easy right now since it is so dry here.. we need some rain really bad here..

went today to get some blood work done and going to see the dr friday.. my hands have been giving me some trouble for a while now.. getting real worried.. i just don't have the strength in them anymore.. it is getting to the point where i can't pick the coffee pot up.. and that means i have to get something done about this.. i can't hardly get jameson out of her carseat sometimes.. i just don't have the grasp to push things and hold things.. when i went and got my blood drawn the nurse knew i was nervous and yeah i was.. it takes nurses forever to get my blood.. they have a hard time finding my veins.. and usually they have to take it out from on top of my hand and that really hurts so i was praying they would not have to do that today.. so had a great nurse that got some blood from my arm.. thank goodnes..

so here are my latest layouts.. some i admitted to some contests and some on 2peas..enjoy..

Earth Day

If you don't know i recycle as much as i can.. espeically those walmart bags.. you know plastic doesn't recycle.. so today is Earth Day so lets do something today to clean up this wonderful Earth that we live on.. recycle what you can.. reuse things that can be used.. plant a tree.. and watch Planet Earth if you aren't already.. this is one of the best shows on Tv right now.. and it is great for the kids also.. we need to understand that if we don't do something now what are our children going to have to deal with when they are 50?

I have always loved nature and now Jameson and Cole they love to watch things grow.. and especially animal planet.. the kids would rather watch animal planet then cartoon network..

Lets make a change in this world..recycle and use those things that are recycled or biodegradable.. or make a small change..just do something..

What's your fave beverage of choice?

love this question..
in the mornings i love coffee.. i love gourmet coffee especially.. with cream.. the international coffee cream.. not the powder..

i am in love with sam's choice is really good and not that expensive.. i buy at least 2 of these a week. and sometimes i have to make my own.. so lots of lemons in this house..

i love coke.. i mean who doesn't but i try to only drink one at work.. i can drink more but i usually won't.. we have a ice machine at work so i will get water after that first coke..

sweet tea is great too.. but i love it with lemons also..

ever since i was pregnant with jameson i have loved lemons with everything.. just not by themselves.. lemons in anything i really love except my coffee.. not so good with that..

this one goes out to christy..

christy sent me this song and i could not listen to it so i went to itunes and bought the song.. she said it reminded her of me.. i got choked up.. i had to look up the lyrics to find out what he saying.. found it and decided to do a layout of it and inserted some of the lyrics.. this girl means so much to me and my family..we have always had a love hate relationship and that is what makes us such great friends.. we are so opposite but love the same things.. does that make sense? well it does in our friendship.. i love you christy so very much.. and miss you so much. can't wait to see you in the summer..


when the water's high
when the weather's not so fair
when the well runs dry
who's gonna be there

you find out who you're friends are
somebody's gonna drop everything
run out and crank up their car
hit the gas get there fast

never stop to think
"what's in it for me" or "it's way too far"

they just show on up
with their big ole heart

you find out who you're friends are..........

christy you are so right.. i would do anything for you and you know it.. love you girl...

something is going around

i don't know if anyone else is sick from your kids but i got something cole got at school.. cole is never sick.. he missed 2 days of school this week.. cole doesn't miss 2 days of school all year.. so i got what he got.. it started with the body ache, runny nose, soar throat, and then a cough.. a cough i can't get rid of.. my chest hurts from coughing so much..

then my puter is messing up.. seems like everything is messing up on us.. our new tv won't show some of the channels so david is worried.. men and there tv's.. we got a new lcd tv last week.. ever since me and david have been married he has wanted one so we got one last week.. he was really excited about it.. it isn't the big one he wanted but it fits good in the living room.. i really don't think the bigger tvs are always the best.. but i told him later we might get a bigger one someday..

i am going to see my mom the end of this month.. i am really excited.. really excited.. looking forward to seeing the twins too.. jen is getting there she should be having them anytime now.. can't wait.

grandma is back in the hospital.. but it seems like she will be doing better soon.. i haven't seen her in a week.. i just dont want her to get this bug we all have.. so it has been killing me to see her.. i know she needs my support and help but being sick is not what she needs right now.. please keep her in your prayers..

If you got a tattoo, what kind would you get and where would you put it?

tommy lee has a tattoo on his wrist.. it is of his childrens names they have written themselves.. i am going to do this.. maybe not as big as his but i want to.. and when jameson is able to write her own name then i would do hers too.. i have always wanted a tattoo..i even went to get one one day and i could not find the one i wanted.. i love suns so i was going to get a sun one time.. but couldn't find the right one.. glad i didn't now.. but i am with my childrens names.. i think that is something i would love in the next 5 years and forever.. something that will bring me back to when they were in the younger ages of there life and starting to write.. no color just black.. what do you think?

grandma is doing good she came out of surgery and is doing better.. this is going to be a long recovery but with your prayers and mine i know she will be able to do the things in life she really enjoys doing.. she is a big influence in this community.. so i know she will do all the things she loves when she does this rehab.. please keep her in your prayers as she continues to do the rehab and the recovery..

my word THANKFUL

i visit ali edwards blog everyday. she gives me the inspiration i need in this world. check it out in blogs i love. so she has challenges every week.. one little word.. mine is THANKFUL. last month i was listening to oprah on xm radio and she said she had a journal just for what she is thankful for. so this year for one of my ideas is to do a journal for what i am thankful for. so now i have a journal and also i am going to use my one little word in ali's challenge. i am so thankful for all that god has provided for me. i take for granted how much of a wonderful god we truely have. i am thankful for the wonderful smiles my children give me. what a wonderful gift. the giggles when i tickle my ticklish kids. the love they give me. wow didn't know how wonderful that was. the amazing family i have. i have a wonderful marriage that i always wanted. he makes me laugh and makes me very happy. thankful i can live in this beautiful house that i truely have fallen in love with. i am thankful i have a great relationship with my in loves. (in laws).. i am thankful for the wonderful friends i have and especially christy... wow what a wonderful woman she is.. i miss you girl.. i am finally getting my prayers answered and for that i am grateful and thankful for.. my parents for giving me siblings.. i love each of them dearly... i have a great relationship with my sisters and for that i am thankful for. so this week think about what makes you thankful.. or just jot down what your one little word is.. or go to ali's website.. you will truely find inspiration there...

love you all

What object in your home that you posses, that you absolutely love? Blog about it.. about something you have that has special meaning to you.

i don't posses anything.... i enjoy looking at some of my favorite things. mostly are my pictures and my scrapbooks. i also have a doll that my grandma thomas got me when i was a child.. it is now in jameson's room on her mantel. i also have my great grandma porterfields dishes that i cherish. they are in a box for right now because i don't have a china cabinet to place them in. that is the next piece of furniture we are getting. i love my china and i can't wait to place it in sight, when i look at those china pieces it brings me back to good memories of grandma making her favorite dishs. loved her fried chicken and mashed potatoes and the best of all her green beans. good memories for me.

also in jamesons room there is the big frame with her first year pictures.. it was very expensive for us to get those pictures taken but i will not ever regret them. now i have them forever to cherish. and the frame is even more prettier on the wall then i thought it would be at the frame store. just love it. i didn't get those pictures taken of cole when he was smaller but i do have some of him that i also cherish.

and also my scrapbook room.. this is my place to get away and do what i love.. where i create my art. i got a small tv in here and a table for the kids to do there art or just do the playdough thing. which is all over the place. but they know they can come in here and create also.

grandma is in the hospital she feel yesterday so i will be pretty busy this week.. i am hoping i can still blog but if not i will be back soon. please put davids grandma martha jean in your prayers. this is going to be a long journey for us.. she is going to have surgery and a lot of physical therapy. she has become a very special person to me and i just hope that she gets back on her feet.. she is not the kind of person that likes to lay around.. she is a very active person. so please keep her in your prayers..

i have always wanted to sky dive. yeah i used to be a thrill seeker. me and christy always said we were going to do it. and i probably will one day. i have also wanted to travel all over the united states to see this wonderful country. traveling is what i really want to do, there are so many things in life we all miss out on because we don't travel. i also have always wanted to go to disney world. yeah i have never been that i can remember. well except when i went on grad night which doesn't count because it was so crowded you can't really have a good time. and i didn't ride anything either. and not enough time either.

i also want to go to a creative keepsakes university.. i have never been and i am going on of these years. if you don't know what that is it is a scrapbook magazine that goes around the world and has these classes all weekend. really cool. i would love to meet some of my favorite scrapbook artist. my fav is ali edwards. she is such and inspiration to me.

my journey in life is my children anything to see them smile and happy is something i want. it doesn't matter what it is. having a good time with them is priceless. and they will remember those good times when they get older.

what is your fave comfort food?

i Love soup.. any kind of soup..chicken, vegetable, dumplings, chilli, and tomato are some of my favs. i like chicken when i don't feel good. and the kids like tomato cause david makes grilled cheese with tomato and i have to say david does make a killer grilled cheese..

i love food, there are so many foods i love but during the winter i like to cook soup. i cook all kinds and then i freeze the rest and have it for dinner on another night. so those nights i don't want to cook i pull out soup..

so this weekend gonna try to do some scrapbooking. gotta a design team i want to enter into. but also i need your prayers right now. i am going through something i just don't know how to handle. i am trying to make a good choice about my decisions but not sure what to do. yet..

What are you looking forward to this coming year?

yesterday was not a good post for me.. i am not much into valentines at all.. i usually ask for roses to plant in the yard... david and i just don't do the valentines thing.. and yesterday was about what you wanted for valentines day.. that is why i didn't post yesterday..

not sure what i am looking forward to this year. i really want to improve myself this year... and every first of the year i think about how much cole and jameson are going to grow up in the next year. and how much i need to let it all in and take it all in...there not small very long..

i am looking forward to hopefully getting a house of our own. hopefully.. i hope this year is better than last year.. don't we all wish that?

If you have set a scrapbooking resolution what is it? How is your resolution going?

no resoulutions for me, they never stick.. i am going to work harder in making more layouts and do more challenges. i find that those things are fun and i get layouts done easier that way when i am challenged. i have done a few layouts and am working on more to come. i thought doing this blog with the questions on the 2peas website would be challenging enough. i enjoy the questions and i know this is a good way to meet new scrapbook people in the world. i go and post my blog address and then check out everyone elses that they have posted. it is really fun and interesting what there opinions are.

things are kind of slow here i have had some kind of stomach virus so not feeling up to anything.. so feeling better today.. pepto really did help alot. i am trying to get jamesons invitations made and send those out. i hope.

What do you think of all the Reality shows on tv?

this is gonna be short.. not feeling well today.

i think it is taken way over the top.. some of them are okay and some of them are just plain out stupid..the orginal reality shows that are still on i watch.. but most of them i just don't watch anymore. it is kind of old don't you think. i like survivor, the amazing race, and real world.. oh and big brother.. so addicted to that one in the summer time. i love drama so i am sticking to that instead of reality tv..

fIf you have a favorite flower. What is this flower and explain why its your favorite.

favorite flower, i love so many.. tulip. i love tulips i love the sweet smell of them in the house in the spring. i love how they look so delicate to touch and so simple to look at. when they come into season i try to get some for the house, they do last a good while so i can enjoy them probably longer than i can a rose. when david and i were dating he sent me a vase full of tulips and other flowers. his favorite flower is tulips too. i also like the lily that is in the bulb family too. it is kind of similar but not the same.

others that i really love are roses, pink dogwoods, hydrangaes, japanese maganolia, bird of paradise and more.. i really do love flowers so it is hard to choose.

you can't go wrong with flowers though. i don't get many from david but it is alright they die anyway. usually for valentines day i ask for a planted rose so i can look at the roses all year long.

have a great weekend..

What is one craft you wish you could learn in 2007?

One craft.. do i have time? i wish i could doodle. i just can't doodle or draw. i used to draw trees all the time but now that i have gotten older i can't draw nothing.. i can't write either. my handwriting is aweful but i handwrite on my layouts for the history of it. one day the kids will enjoy my handwritten thoughts.. or at least i hope they do.. i love my sister rachael's handwriting. wish i had her handwriting qualities. then maybe i could doodle. i am not much into others crafts, or i just don't have time to do other crafts. i used to cross stitch but i have a hard time with my hands so have to use my hands for more important things now.

If you have/had any pets in your life. How did you decide on their names?

i decided on my english bulldog when i got her. ronald regan had died right about the time i got her and just decided to name her regan after him.. pretty simple and the kids liked the name too. she really doesn't look like a regan but it just stuck. love her to pieces.. i really like it when everyone is asleep and she follows me everywhere in the house.. and when she gets tired of following me around she is usually in coles room sleeping with him.. i think i will always have a english bulldawg they have this unusual personality. and they are protective of you also.

What is one thing you wish you could relive or do over from your school days?

i love this one.. i would not have moved schools so much.. but i don't think i had much say so in that one. well i kind of did when i moved back and forth from dad's to mom's. but i should have stayed at wayne county the whole 4 years. i would have gotten to know more of the people i graduated with.. i might have even known my husband a little more. maybe have even dated him if the stars were right... christy has been my best friend after we graduated but we knew each other since middle school so maybe we had been closer friends in school..i would have tried harder at my grades and not messed around and found school not as importand as boys. gosh i am not looking forward to jameson being in high school...i wasn't a bad kid in school i never go in trouble i just liked boys.. still do.. just one now... i also would worked harder in playing softball.. i always felt like i was not good enough to play but i loved playing soft ball..

so what would you change?

If i could travel to one special place where would that be?

my favorite website has blog challenges everyday so i thought i would do this and try it out when i really don't have much to talk about.. kind of slow here.

so if i could travel anywhere i would go to Europe. travel all over. i have always wanted to go to Venice Italy. i love how they are on top of water living and traveling in those gondalas. i find that very interesting. there steps drop off to the water.

of course Paris.. just an amazing place on tv and in books. i just can't imaging how beautiful it would be in real life. i know the french aren't very nice but who is these days. and i can't speak french. so i am in a win win situation there.

and i have always wanted to go to the holland. love the tulips and the wooden shoes that look so uncomfortable. i would also like to go to coppenhagen. i like hans christan anderson stories, yeah that sounds kind of crazy but i was in a school play and we did the one of his stories.

so a little about where i would love to would take about a month to travel around europe. that is on my all time list to go to.
