We went to my sister's house for Easter this year. We had a delicious dinner of ham, hunkie potatoes, stuffing, and asparagus (YUM!). What a fun day was spent with my sister, BIL, Baxter, and BIL's mom & dad, my mom & dad, grandma, and my family. My grandpa was with us in spirit and my sister had a picture of him on the mantel. It was a hard day for all, but seeing his picture, I knew he was with us.

We played the wii after dinner and I got grandma to give it a try. She's bowling in the pictures in the LO and had a fun time. I'd like to take the wii over to her house and let her play again. It's hard to believe she's 94 yrs old and playing a wii :) Gotta LOVE her!

I'm going to try and blog again!~

I'm such a bad blogger. I knew this would happen~I'd start out strong and then just completely stop doing the blog. But I'm going to try again and hopefully I can keep up with this :)

I just love these flowers. I found the kit at Archiver's and it's by doodlebug. The scrapbook obsessions March kit was perfect for these flowers. I'm going to make another one by using the cricut because I love this so much :)

Road Trip

I actually had time and the mojo was with me, to sit down and create a LO. When I sat down to work on a LO, I really had no idea what I was going to do. I looked at pagemaps and found a sketch that I really liked and these pictures popped into my mind for the LO. Well, I started with the sketch and then all of a sudden it became my own LOL! I love it when a LO comes together like that :)

These pictures are from the day we took Sabrina 1/2 home to North Carolina. The pictures were actually taken in West Virigina.

SAD update!

Maxie, my baby rabbit, passed away last night (9-27-08) at 6:20 :(. He died peacefully in my arms. Brittney had him out yesterday afternoon and everything was fine. I took the kids to dinner last night because DH was at this raffle thing and when we came home, Maxie did come out to greet us (when we get home he usually runs out of the inside cage to the outside cage when he hears voices). Maxie didn't come out so the kids ran out to check on him when I went into the house. JAcob came running and I knew something was wrong. He told me Maxie was just laying there. I went running outside and found him just laying in his cage. He was still breathing, but within 5 minutes he was gone. I actually think he didn't want to pass away being all alone. I'm so glad we got home in time and he was able to pass away peacefully in my arms. DH and I just talked about him probably spending the winter in the house because he just wasn't growing and he still had his fuzzy baby fur instead of preparing for winter. He was the runt of the litter and sadly, just wasn't meant to make it. He spent a good month with us and enjoying coming in the house everyday to run around and play. He always knew when it was time because you'd go out to get him and he jump into your hands knowing where he was going. These are happy thoughts, but it still doesn't make the pain in my heart any better :(. I love animals and this hurts loosing one.

Meet Max!

We went to the fair a few weeks ago and Brittney begged her daddy for a baby rabbit. We previously had 2 rabbits (Tyler and Flopsie) and Tyler passed away in October 2007. Ken didn't like the bunny at first, but Max has really grown on him. He was the runt of the litter and the most adorable of the litter! Harley (the dog in the picture) and Bear don't really mind Max since we've had rabbits before, they're immune to them. In this one picture, Max is even beside Harley and Harley's just watching him.

Scrap time!

I finally had a chance to sit down and create some LOs today. I've been so busy with getting ready for school to start that I haven't scrapped in a few weeks. I love looking at older pictures of my kids, but it makes me sad that they're growing up so quickly. Jacob was 2 years old in this LO back in 1998, today he's 12! He still enjoys helping out around the house~thank goodness!

Bad blogger

See it's already into August and I haven't posted anything since July 21; what a BAD blogger I am LOL!

I did start back to work yesterday (8-4-08) and we spent the entire day cleaning toys with bleach to get ready for the first day. Some people get into preschools/daycares thinking "oh what an easy job, I can do this. Little do people realize all the work that happens in preschools. This week is cleaning everything, but the reward comes on Friday when we get to go to Holcombs! Holcombs is a teacher store; the next best thing to a scrapbook store! I'm also working on lesson plans this week; this is another thing that people don't realize, planning does go into teaching preschool, you just don't go in and "wing it". You need to plan every activity that they're going to do. I love kids and teaching them :) Not too many people can say they love their job.
