This layout and challenge got me thinking and thinking-which is always a good thing-about how important journaling is as it leaves a bit of 'me' and my thoughts for them to read in the future. I am going to try harder to journal what I think is important for them to learn and one day (hopefully) take with them as values, life lessons, etc.

The next layout I did was for Letters to Scrap By. Their challenge is you must use the colour cranberry on your layout. This is what I came up with.

Tonight I am meeting the ladies for our card making class and get together! Iam very excited as we talk, eat, hang out and make great cards. I look forward to seeing them as much as possible! I tried to get in to get a hair cut somewhere before the meeting, but as usual I leave it till the last minute and everyone is booked up. Oh well, next time! HA

After supper I am going to vote! I hope all Canadians out there will do the same!

I am not looking for a win at all (I have a long way to go for that), but these challenges really do get your mind going and keep you scrapping. I find a lot of times I don't know what to call a layout, but I don't have to worry about that part if I am doing a challenge! Anyway the main thing is it was fun!
Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was fun great. We had our big supper on Thursday, as the weekends are just too busy and I wanted to be with the the family instead of in the kitchen as it was just us. I baked a lot this weekend...gingersnap cookies, peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies, haystacks and oatmeal coconut cookies (which I took to church). Everything turned out good and can you believe the only cookies we have left are the haystacks! Geesh!
Dennis and Travis are outside packing down the yard (getting all the outdoor toys put away, tarping the air conditioners, etc). Jacie has a friend over and Kael and I are hanging out. I am still in my PJ's, but oh well...it is one of those days where I just cleaned the kitchen including the fridge and ouside cupboard doors, etc...yes I am nesting big time! My dad told me on Sat that it is only 52 days till due date! I am hoping my mom comes the week before the due date and we can organize and clean like crazy. I am trying to do a bit each day, but I am not good at organizing!

Happy Birthday Kael! It is hard to believe you are a year old already...
where did the time go?! You had your first piece of chocolate cake and loved it. It was cute to watch you muck around with it first until you actually put your fingers in your mouth and tasted it. After that it was game over and you inhaled it!
This picture is when Kael was all done his cake and ready for a bath. He isn't as messy as I thought he would have been.
I finished the "Rock Hound" layout a couple days ago. It was taken when we were camping in June. The kids love it outside and Kael is no exception...especially with the buffet of rocks to choose from!
This layout I did this morning while Kael was down for his morning nap and Travis was playing on the computer. When I asked Travis what he thought of it he said "it is lovely". Where does he pick up those words from? I don't recall us using "lovely" too often when we speak! HA I thought what he said though was very sweet.
Well I am going to rally up the kids and go get milk and bread...and while I am out I might as well get a slurpee! :)

Den got up with the kids both Sat and Sun (without being asked...so nice) as I was up again through the night with Kael. I sure hope he can kick this cold soon as it sure is whooping his butt. Kael is also cutting two molars on the bottom and one tooth on the top, so he is a mess.
