This weeks layouts

Love this girl to pieces.  When she was learning to ride the 4 wheeler she was so slow and steady, it was so cute.  Unlike Ashley who seems to be a speed demon.

 This one is so brave, she got her ears pierced for her 5th birthday and there were no tears!!
According to Megan, after this years water park adventure, it's time to move on.  This place is ideal to get out all the energy and wear out all the kiddos.  Plus it is only 3 feet deep pretty much everywhere and the kids can run on their own without us having to go everywhere with them.  We might have to bribe Megan to like it again.
I am getting so close to being done with my 2015 pictures and I am definitely ready to move on from layouts to something more fun, maybe a Disney album!

Even more layouts


 Just a quick check in to post what I finished last week.  The lake had a rough ride in 2015, it got crazy high the fourth of July weekend for storms and again in December/January.  I have been going to the lake all my life and never saw it this high.  It was pretty cool to visit Bagnell Dam and see all the flood gates open and the water just pouring out.
 Ashley learned to ski this summer!!!
Ashley started serving at our church, what a great way for our kids to learn service.  She has served quite a few times since and even has served with our bishop.

This weeks layouts

In 2015 I did not do a December Daily,  I had completed one the past three years and was ready for a break.  So I actually got to do some Christmas layouts to put in my yearly albums, simple but quick.


Sisters!  These two do not get along, I hope it means they will love each other when they are older.  It drives me batty how much they fight. I am constantly separating them or telling them to stop.  For hating each other I do have lots of photos of them together.

more 2015 layouts

A bunch of one page layouts done quickly and without much embellishments.  But I got them done and in the books. I am ready to move on from layouts for a little bit and into Allison Pre-K album.

Even more layouts


 I have had these photos along with this recipe in my to do pile for a long time.  I finally had some papers that worked with them!  David is carrying on his grandfathers tradition of pancakes and gets multiple requests for them all year long.
 Remember Archivers?  This is a free kit I got for attending a crop.  I am pulling out my old stash and busting it.  It think it turned out great!

 Another Scrapbook Generation kit with some Allison and Mom photos.  I love that kiddo.
Allison's bestie from when she was a baby until she left Goddard at 4.  Mia and Allison took a gymnastics class last school year so that they could continue to see each other.  We tried to get them in dance together this year but our schedules just couldn't match up.  Allison still gets to see Mia at church and I think they will be friends forever.

More layouts

I have been busy cranking out more layouts.  I am really trying to keep these simple and use up some product I have laying around.  Must finish 2015 so I can move on to more exciting things!
Canning green beans is a full day job.  All the picking, cleaning, snapping, packing and pressure cooking takes time but we love the reward of enjoying those garden green beans all year long!

This kit was from when I started scrapbooking in 2003, so glad that I finally used it!  My finished layout looks nothing like the kit but I used all the paper and embellishments so I consider that an accomplishment.  Supplies used!

A free layout kit (who am I kidding I had to spend $25 to get it for free) from Scrapbook Generation made this layout so quick to pull together.

Back in the Saddle - Scrapboooking

It has been awhile....I have been working on some projects, like Ashley's 4th grade school album.  But I need to finish up 2015 so I can get 2016 pictures printed and start working on those.  I also need to finish up Allison's Pre K school album before she moves out of Kindergarten!  So without further ado here is what I have cranked out this week.
 A favorite summer treat.  David loves this stuff and will search out their trucks to get a cone.

Nuts is no longer, it was good while it lasted.  He definitely kept the mice under control.  There was even talk of getting another outdoor farm cat this spring to help control the population.
 Crazy kiddo!

This lady is really starting to age so I wanted to get some photos of her scraped.  Trinity can't fetch sticks in the lake anymore, jump up on our bed or climb the stairs to get to Allison's tent.  I am glad I captured all of these.
