Whoa is ME!

I have been totally just too busy to post on here so I doubt that I will get any response after so long from neglecting my blog, but I will try any way! lol

The summer has just flown pass me and I cannot believe we are into September already!
I got birthday pics, school pics, soceer pics and tons more stuff that I am way behind on. But life goes on anyway!

I survived a busy summer with Logan and Drew. And now Drew is in Kindergarten already. I got to take him in with his mommy on his very first day of school.

Logan turned 2 July 25 which is hard to believe too. At the end of his party
Colleen walked us to our car and told us that Logan is going to be a big brother
around March 26. We are so excited and hoping that maybe this one will be another
granddaughter after 3 boys in a row. The oldest granddaughter will be eleven in December so its time for another girl. Colleen has been really sick so far into this pregnancy that I have tried to take the boys and keep them out of her hair as
much as possible. That's about all I can do to help out.

Also in August our third oldest grandchild had his 5 birthday party.

Its been a 2 years now that my dh retired and we still haven't kill each other. Been much too busy for that. lol

I tried to see Theresa as much as possible this summer while she was off from school because when school starts I don't get to spend much free time hanging out with her. But there is light at the end of the tunnel with a graduation in December. Hee Haw I am so proud and tickled for her! WTG Girlfriend

And now soceer season starts for Kiera, JD and Drew. So more run run run! But I love going and taking pics.

Talk about pics I had my very first photo shoot with Colleen's best friend Holly who just had a baby girl after 2 boys! I think I got some really good shots which I needed because I am doing the baby's birth announcements for Holly. Had so much fun and learned a few more things. I went into photoshop and turned the pic black and white and just colorize the bow pink. I will try and show a pic of the announcement that I made with this picture.
And today we took Logan to see the fire trucks in Sullivan and to catch a few photos of him. He surprised us both by totally freaking out! But got some cute shots anyway. I did this for Drew but I think he was a
bit older.

I finally posting again on a request from the oldest daughter. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, really! I was getting a little caught up on facebook and life in general. I finally started scrapping again. Not much else is new except grandsons are getting bigger and bigger. I am going to post at least one of the layouts I did over the weekend. Got almost 3 done and several ideas swimming in my head. I have been taking tons of pics and haven't gotten to get much scrapped until
recently. So here's one of the newest. It's a start for me again at least.

I am still working on the journaling on the other layout but I will try and post it soon. Have a good week and God Bless!

Some Random Thoughts and Shots

It seems like forever since I posted as my daughter remind me a few days ago. I haven't had to much energy with this head cold I have.

My word for this year I think will be practice. I am trying to practice to take better pictures or at least learn some more features on my Nikon D60. I am also trying to practice more patience and practice of letting things not get to me as in the past. Sometimes it is easier said than done. I was going to try and do the 365day project but that quickly got away from me.

Another thing that has me addicted now is Facebook. Can't seem to stay for off of it.

Not much more in the way of exciting news but I scrapped over at Theresa's awhile ago and scrapped 3 layouts in one nite. I haven't been that productive in a long time. Now that American Idol is back on that to might go by the wayside temporarily.
I hope not!
Here are a few random shots. The first one is Drew with a skelton that turned out much to hard for just him to put together so turned into a project for him and PaPa.

The next one was a practice shot of The Loggs!

The Creche

I totally went real simple this year with the decorations and instead my santas I decided to bring out this beautiful creche made by cousin's wife Jean for my Uncle years and year ago but was passed on to me about 6 years ago at Colleen's wedding. Colleen also got one that Jean had made for her motherinlaw.
I decided with busy little Logan hands I couldn't put to much stuff out this year.
It made it easier but also a bit sweeter. Merry Christmas to all and hopefully a Happy New Year. God Bless!
Got to finish up my Christmas cards tonite or the wrath of my DH will be upon me. I can't understand why he is so concerned with Christmas cards. lol

Some More Drewisms

Today when Colleen and Drew came to pick up Logan, Drew spotted a ballon that a girl gave him at Walmart. Of course he wanted to take it home with him. Pawpaw told him he had to hang on to it at their house because they have really high ceilings and he would lose it if he let go of it. And Drew replied it won't get lost but it would be up there with Jesus and God. I am wondering if going to a Catholic preschool is rubbing off on him. lol

About two weeks ago Drew was here on his Thursday with us. We were eating breakfast and he pulled up his shirt and told me he had this stomach forever and never eats junk food. I had to bust out laughing because sometimes he eats too much junk.

Well today I basically finished up my Christmas shopping! Now for some Christmas decorations. I am going to have to limit some of the decorations because Loggie Bear and his busy hands.

I am finally starting to get into the Christmas spirit. One thing I am going to take out this year is my ceramic creche. I haven't done that in a long time. And this is what Christmas is about and not all the commericalizing stuff that goes on this time of year.
Take care and God Bless!
