More Vinyl Words

This one was actually a REDO but I did a larger size font and added ... and the verse. I like it much better!

It's been a good day. I'm home for the weekend, inside because I have Strep Throat. Great. I knew my throat was sore but had NO IDEA it would be Strep until I developed a fever and chills with it. Glad I went to the Doctor and got it checked out. I still went home and cleaned house since I had taken off Friday to take care of some things. Today we've played Wii, played in the floor with some toys and I got to do my Vinyl words while they took a nap. I'd like to do two different sayings in my living room and one in my bedroom. If time allows, I want to do one in the kid's room too. (I love you to the moon and back) I just found a place online, Expressions Vinyl, that has awesome prices and selection. I got some Transfer Tape from them and it was a fast, smooth transaction. We're trying to cut back on our spending so I was very pleased with them
Hope everyone has a great weekend and God Bless!

A VERY Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Granny!Today is our Granny's Birthday and we're having Dinner with the Family Saturday at Golden Corral. She is such a blessing to our family and we love her so much!!
I just started Wilton's Cake Decorating Course 1 at Michaels and I love it already. It's exciting to see what you can do with this hobby. Just hoping I can do it but I think it will LOTS of fun trying. My new kit...lots of stuff. Underneath I have the cake leveler, 2 spatulas and there's room for my cupcake decorater and Cookie Press. Very neat. Mike has to work Saturday but I might practice a little while the kids take a nap. I have some homework for next week =)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

New Year, New Resolutions

With the New Year, comes LOTS of New Year Resolutions. My Top ones? Saving Money, spending more time at home, and keeping my house CLEAN. We stayed home and watched movies the last couple weekends and I tried to pull my camera out when I remembered. Hannah crawled up and rested with Dad while we watched The New Tinkerbell movie.

I cleaned our our hall closet and the kids found a new fort. Even after I put our vacuum back in, they still have some room. They had alot of fun...stayed in for a long time before I put the doors back on. Who needs toys??
And look what we got last week? SNOW! Just enough to look pretty but not enough to stay home :( Hunter got to go in two hours late, though.
Anyway, have a GREAT Thursday. I have an early meeting this morning but I get off at 3 to take Hannah to the doctor for a checkup. Take Care!

Play Time

Just wanted to share some playful pics of the kids. They LOVE to play together. I had just given them both a bath so they were having some fun before bedtime. Hannah likes to crawl up in his recliner. Of course, she couldn't wait to get down once I got my camera. And Hunter was pretending to be Buzz Lightyear. (To Infinity and Beyond)

These will be fun to scrapbook. Have a wonderful Thursday. Hope we can get some SNOW tonite!!

In Memory of Katie Puckette

One year ago today, I lost my grandmother. What a wonderful person she was. Words can't express how MUCH I miss her. Her smile could light up a room and it usually did every Sunday while we visited with her. Every Sunday after Church. I'm not sure if it was her or us that enjoyed it most. I certainly didn't want her to be in pain so I believe God answered our prayer and called her home. It still hurts, though. I still miss her. I still love her. She will forever be a part of my life.

A New Year and a New Me

I guess we all make New Year Resolutions but I'm hoping to make several of them I think will really help my life. I want to be a better wife, a better mom, a better friend, a better person. I'm hoping to spend more time at home with my family, more time enjoying life instead of always being on the go. I hope to save more money, work on home improvement projects and take some instructional classes that I'm interested in. I'm praying about some decisions we have to make as a family and hoping God will lead us in the right direction.
We started this weekend by enjoying each other's company at home. From the time I got home Thursday afternoon, the only place we went was Church, lunch and then to visit our Granny and Aunt. We got the Christmas decorations down, organized in new Rubbermaid containers and put away in the attic. We decorated with our Winter snowmen and snowflakes. We watched movies. We had yummy snacks to celebrate the New Year. We played in the floor with the kids. We laughed. We rested. We took lots of pictures. It was wonderful.
I cleaned and organized my Scrapbooking area too in my den and was excited to be able to make 3 cards. Afterwards, everything went back to where it belongs and it's clean again. Mike hung my new Embellishment Center and I think it will really help my organization. I just love the way it looks.
My little scrap space. Hunter and Hannah use the table and chairs that fit perfectly under my work table.
My New Embellishment Center and Clip It Up
LOVE all my embellishments I get to play with now
My Clip It Up my SIL picked up for me at Archivers.
If I don't see it, I won't use it.
My New labels I made with my label maker to categorize everything.
That's all I have for today. Hope you have a great week and God Bless =)
