HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICHARD aka PAPPY...hope you have a unstressful day..

We are playing the waiting game this week. I am not fond of this at all.. We are suppose to know something about Davids job. Hate this.. and i hate to see David waiting too..

I signed Ivy up for Mothers Morning Out for Mondays and Fridays.. She gets to play with other kids and i have a few hours i can get some things done. And 2 of my friends are coming over next week to hang out and hopefully scrapbook. Pretty excited about that.. I went to a crop all day Saturday and didn't get but a few layouts done. I enjoy going but hate to pack and unpack. And then i realize i don't have everything i need too. So here are some layouts i have done this week..

Have a great HUMP day.. and happy birthday again to my father in law Richard.. love you..

I thought i might do 16 things about me .. i just saw it on Ali's Blog so it gave me an idea to do my own.. there are so many things we don't know about each other it is amazing what we learn..

1.I have always loved Giraffes and Owls. i know there is an owl that lives on the farm but i never can find it..

2. i have always wanted to be a mother..i never really wanted to be anything else but a mother. well i still want to be a nurse but being a mom came first.

3. i love soup.. making chili tonight... especially a good homemade chicken noodle with David's grilled cheese.. yummy..

4. i hate breakfast.. this year i have made a promise to myself to eat breakfast and i am really eating every morning.. Oatmeal is what i like right now..

5.. i hate crowds.. especially a place i am not familiar with..

6. i love coffee.. love the smell of it being brewed. i love drinking it..i can drink a whole pot in one morning.. and i am totally addicted to Mc Donalds coffee too..

7. Okay i am a facebook junkie.. so addicted.. i love seeing what people do.. and catching up with old friends and classmates.

8. i lived in Hawaii and i hated it..

9. i love vintage stuff... i could look at finds all day online but nothing around here to go shop for.

10. i am really excited to have a day for myself this weekend.. going to a scrapbook crop.. all day long.. i haven't been in about a year now..

11. i love to smell lavender Downey.. oh yeah i use it too..

12. i really don't like Jameson's dog Rainbow.. can't stand that dog.. well i won't go on with this one..

13. my favorite tv show is LOST .. i read the blogs, watch the spoilers, listen to the blogs.. yeah a little bit in love with that show.. and i fell asleep last night watching it.

14. my favorite singer right now is James Morrison.. oh and Adele comes pretty close..

15. i don't like the dark.. and this house gets dark.. i always have a light on

16..i love David so much it hurts sometimes. and sometimes i really can't stand him.. but most of the time i can't wait till he gets home to sit down and have our chat in the morning before he goes to bed. it is pretty hard when you are on different shifts but we have made it work.

okay a little about me and my everyday stuff..

Today I am leaving this post to Mandy.. she was a great friend to so many of us. I will miss her and so will a whole lot of us. Please keep her family in your prayers. She graduated with me and David and is the same age as us also. What a beautiful person Mandy was.. David and I know her family very well so they are in our prayers and in our thoughts..

Things like this make you think about what would happen if that was you.. and yes i have thought about that a lot.. so i told David the things i want the kids to have if something ever happened to me.

So today please say a special prayer for her family as they go through this tragedy...

Here are some photos of Ivy taking steps.. She is really getting around now.. But still wants to be picked up when she doesn't want to walk. Her knees are always dirty from crawling around. I can't wait till she walking more.. Pretty fun to watch her push stuff around. Gosh she is dirty.. oh well.. my camera flash isn't working so this is the best ones i got.

Have a great weekend and stay warm..

I have been so inspired lately. And going without sleep to get my ideas out. So last night i went to bed at 8 with 2 PM's so i would get some rest, but i still woke up with a headache. The forestry people have been burning some brush right near the farm and it has given us all headaches. So today i am hoping for lots of rain to get this smoke out of the air. The house smells like we have been at a camp fire all week. So burning lots of candles. Here are some from Jenny's photo shot.. This girl has lots of talent.. My favorite layout is the one of us in the shadows.. LOVE IT!!.. Still have more photos to do layouts on. I also have some great news this week.. so keep checking my blog to see..

Last night Ivy took 4 steps.. I think all these riding toys and walkers are helping.. she walked to David last night to give him his cell phone then back to me.. I didn't have my camera but i knew if i went and got it she would stop walking. So i will get those pictures.. i have my camera out ready to go when she does start.. Here is here mini album i made.. it isn't all of the album just some pages of it..

Thanks for looking..

Right now i am really wishing i had more time to scrap.. i am so motivated to use my scraps up and make cards.. i NEVER like to make cards..well i do make them but not as much as i like making layouts. i found this cute blog for sketches for cards. here is the link 2 Sketches 4 You.. and i will post my card and a layout.. school starts back tomorrow and i am very EXCITED.. Ivy is off of her schedule and doesn't take naps because the kids are so loud.. and she is a very light sleeper.. so as i type this she is screaming her head off.. going in there calming her down and then leaving is not easy.. i hate to hear her scream.. but as soon as i hold her she is asleep. so let's celebrate BACK AT SCHOOL..

Tomorrow i will post Ivy's first mini album..
lots of photos for that one..

Have a nice day...

Happy New Year..
I tried staying up but just didn't make it.. David has been sick and now i think i am getting it. Trying to take meds and so forth..
Any resolutions this year? well i have a few but i think i am going to keep them to myself.. Maybe work on more layouts and go for those Design teams that intimidate me? Yeah that is a BIG goal.. Hope everyone has a great day today. I hope things are better this year then last year. So many things are coming up in this year.. So many people having babies.. So that is something to look forward to.. Just as long as it isn't me having them i am pretty happy.

Okay here are 2 layouts i did using So sketchy sketches..
Hope everyone has a wonderful day.. Eat lots of black eyed peas and greens.. I know I am..
