Have had a lot going on...

Made a big transition recently and I am in the middle of moving my stuff back in the new place. I hate moving and being uprooted, but I am not complaining...Life is good! Hope to get back to scrapping as soon as I can find an area to make into a scrap space. :)

Texas Trip Tray

My friend Trisha got these trays made by 7Gypsies and made one of our trip to Chicago. It was really pretty, and I thought it was a great idea to make these trays of all my trips, so I started out with my trip to Texas last year. :)

sketch 135 Kids at play

Made this layout for my friend Trisha's sketch this week over at sketch This is Serenity and Dante at the park. They had big fun going down the slides and riding on the big dinosaur. :)

Our new kiddo's

We got our first 2 foster children today. Meet Dante and Serenity. Dante just turned 4 and Serenity is 16 months. I was nervous before they came to our house, but I don't know why. They are the sweetest little babies and are a joy to be around. I will only have them temporarily, but I will make sure they are loved and well taken care of while they are here with us. :)

The crop was such fun! :) Here's one of my daughter Destiny which was also done for my dear friend Trisha's sketch challenge this week, and one of Bri for his first time driving. We let him drive the van around the lot at my work. :) Scary! LOL

I scrapped!

I haven't scrapped in forever and I got 3 new layouts done this weekend. Yay me! :)

The Weekend

was great. Had the house to ourselves for most of the weekend and that was a nice change. I got to keep Cayden for a while on Sunday. He is starting to walk and has some new front teeth. Found out about those new choppers because I was feeding him breakfast and he bit my finger, LOL. :) His hair is starting to curl like mine and Chris'...he's so cute. I love him! <3

Had a wonderful ...

4th of July. All of my buddies and their families came over and so did my mom and Cayden. We had a combined cookout/pool party/bonfire/fireworks with our neighbors and their friends and had a blast. I just wish my bff Cinn could have made it, she was all that was missing. She couldn't come because she is in the middle of moving. :( Glad I didn't have to work the next day because we were up very late. I had a wonderful time and I am so very glad to have spent my holiday with such great friends and family. :)

Team Edward

Went to see the midnight showing of Twilight Eclipse opening night. It was a sold out show but we had prepaid for our tickets and didn't even have to wait in line. I think Eclipse is the best movie so far and I really enjoyed watching it. Had a great time at Rooster's before hand with Brian, the neighbors, and Mandy and her husband. I even wore my "Mrs. Cullen" shirt. :)

A new car for me...

After 5 weeks of looking for a car for myself, I FINALLY found one that I loved. I bought a new car so I could give the car I already have to my son Chris so he could get a job and co op from school. It was VERY frustrating looking for a car....the prices are very high and most of the cars just weren't worth the money. It was also very disappointing when I would find one I liked and it was already sold. My wait was worth it...I got a 2001 Mustang and it has an awesome stereo system and just perfect for me to drive around town in and not having a car payment is great. I also like that it is a stick shift~ No one in my household knows how to drive a stick but me. :) I am happy with it and I have no buyers remorse either. :)
