We miss Daddy!









This week I have been on my own as D. has been in Augusta working. He left Monday and will come home tonight. It sure has made me appreciate single mothers and those moms whose husbands travel a lot. I have enjoyed staying up a little later (D.'s a night owl) and not being awakened early early in the morning, but I have missed those things too. I know the kids will be so excited to see him tonight, as I sure will. It's a good reminder that absence makes the heart grow fonder!
We have managed to keep busy though. On Monday my friend Jill and her son Jameson came over and we had a slumber party! The boys had a great time playing the Wii mostly, and Jill and I were able to have girl time just vegging out.
We've been up to the usual other than that. School, church, meetings, shopping, etc. Trying to get Mallory to drink coconut milk or soy milk or goat's milk. She just doesn't like them. So say a prayer that she takes to something soon.



I have been able to scrap quite a bit lately and that has made me happy. These are a few of my latest layouts. Today I am going to start working on a Valentine garland. I'll post pics when it's finished!

I just love your color in your pages! You do a great jojb of combining different pages -- I stuggle with that. I am hoping to scrap some today -- kids are home for the 3rd day in a row for snow and hubby is working late -- will need a little escape!

We had the same problem with Noah and Milk. He would not drink any of the alternatives either. O.J. with calcium and calcium gummies were our only option! Hope it goes better for you.

Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog! I am glad that you read that entry as well, because you definitely don't need to give up. You have some great layouts from what I've seen. I especially love the "sweet eats" one and the "U2r buds" one. Good luck w/ your scrappy goals :) And always remember that the most important reason we scrap is for our families :) Already I look back at my pages from a year or 2 ago and am excited to have those memories down on paper :)
