I was gone from home about 3 weeks. Glad to be back home again. Love to travel and see everyone. Tom wanted a cherry cheesecake instead of birthday cake. So he got his wish.
We are having very cool weather. I was just getting used to FL weather. I hope it is a while
before we get snow.

Fall is Coming ! ! !

Well, I think fall is coming real quick. The last couple of days it has been very chilly when we get up. It does warm up a bit but not like it was. I like fall but I'm thinking of what comes after it, winter and snow. I just don't like it any more. It's pretty but I don't like the COLD.

Wonderful Weelend

We had a wonderful weekend celebration. First we went to my sister and brother-in-laws house for a get together. All 3 of my kids and their families came up from Florida. My brother and sister-in-law came too with their oldest granddaugther. I think we all had a great time. I hope we can make ita regular every couple of years. On Sunday my kids went to another family reunion on their dad's side. Two of them came to our house for Monday. The spouse's have never been to our town. A little show and tell. The youngest left yesterday and oldest left this afternoon. What an enjoyable weekend.

I'm paper

What scrapbooking item are you?
You are PAPER!You are an all natural basic person who likes to act as a foundation to others. You are willing to take a backseat in most of your relationships and let others take the spotlight, while you show your support and help them shine! Underneath it all, you are the one who makes it all happen. You are the focus and stability in any group, even if you are not the leader. Others look to you to set the pace and provide ideas for ways to get things done. But Paper Beware - sometimes you get a little edgy with the people who look to you for support and can give them some papercut remarks that can hurt their feelings. Remember to watch what you say, because you are best when leading by example.Take this quiz!Quizilla Join Make A Quiz More Quizzes Grab Code

Friends picnic

We're going to neighbors for a cookout tonight.
They just moved in a month or so ago.
Should be fun!
I'm working on my blog design but still don't like it.
I liked the rounded corner of other one but it's too narrow.
Have a great day.

I used "Fizz" kit from Club Scrap. Title is cut with the cricut.
Kinzie is enjoying her 2nd birthday. She gets a little bit upset
when she can't have the whole cake.

Us at Christmas 2006

I used Club Scrap paper "Ivory Elegance". We tried this year at Christmas to get a picture of each family together. One of my kids took this of Tom & I.

Canadian Sunset

I used Club Scrap paper from 2 kits "Paisley" & "Wings"in this layout. Background paper is from Paisley and the mats are from Wings. I took these pictures of the same sunset in Canada. They were taken a minute apart. I had a couple extra pictures so I cut out the title with my sizzix.

He's A Daddy!

I used Club Scrap paper from "It's A Girl" kit. My son is a new daddy. I waited all these years for him to be a father and it has happened. I was able to be at the hospital waiting till she was born.
