School has started!

So school has begun and I seem busier than before.  I am even up earlier and get my days started earlier but I still don't have enough time.  Maybe it is because I have found a new Hobby Lobby in Manchester and had to meet my friend there on the second day of school.  This of course, took up the entire day cause we had to hit the LL Bean outlet and eat lunch!  There was absolutely no time for anything else!  Just a point I need to make, Hobby Lobby's are only down south and out west.  This is a BIG deal!  Finally, my favorite store within driving distance.  It is good that it is far enough away not  to just drop by.  It has to be planned.

On the first day of school, I tried to take pictures of my handsome boy but only got scowled face mug shots.  He was in a great mood but it did not come through in these photos.



 My fav minus the bog body in the background!




I don't understand why I was the only one with a camera at the bus stop.  Maybe they took pics at home before they got there.  My husband was also out of town, but if he wasn't he would have been the only dad there.  I often take for granted how involved Randy is.  Roman is one lucky boy.


I have been playing around with a fantastic manufacturer, Bella Blvd.  I love love love there stuff.  It has been fun using papers and embellishments that actually are age appropriate for my boy.  They actually have a line called Mr. Boy that is terrific.  But I do have a favorite layout that I created, can u guess which it is???





 If you guess the "Girls" one, you are right!!!!  I loved using pinks and reds and flowers without restraint.  I was in my glory!  Roman took these pictures of us.  I keep asking him to try and get both our heads in the frame.  Finally he succeeded.  I thought he did a great job.  You can tell by the pics that we had fun trying.  The next runner up is not cause of the design it is cause of the pictures of Roman's "Many Faces."  If you know him, or been to our house, you know that he has a million costumes or items that change his appearance.   This was a great way to capture so many different styles.  Not many of these pics could have been a layout on their own.  Clumping them together was just right.  By the way, when he changes his appearance, you must call him by a different name.  It is always a challenge!


UPDATES: 
Randy's dad is still the same.  He is hanging on but does not have much mobility.  Please keep praying for him and for his wife to have strength.

Milford our cat has been sick and we thought for sure that we were going to loose him.  He has improved greatly with steroids and may 'not' become our dogs angel according to our son:o)

I painted my bathroom from a blue-gray to a brown.  I LOVE it!  I had no idea that I could paint so well.   It may be something I continue to do!  Watch out house!!!


Pictures of the patio:  The first picture is when the house was originally built.  It looked beautiful but turned into a splinter nightmare.  







This may be the longest blog post in history.  Sorry.  We do have furniture now and the grass is growing back, I mean weeds!

Thanks for reading my novel:o)
