Happy Birthday Michael!

It seems hard to believe that my son is 33 years old today. It doesn't seem possible. I remember going to the hospital around 9 in the evening on a Thursday night. Steve was working at the time so my father-in-law drove me up until Steve could get there. It's a wonder I made it there alive! LOL! Four hours later Michael arrived. He has turned into a fine man, husband and father so I guess we did something right:)

Happy Birthday Michael!

A new look

If you visit my blog once in a great while you can see that I gave it a new look. Nothing like spending a good portion of my day playing with it. LOL. I still want to tweak some things but since this is all foreign to me it takes me a while.

Do you feel like you are being watched when you look at the screen? LOL! I have a couple new layouts to post but may not get to it today. Soon, I promise.

I do scrap occasionally.

I don't seem to play with photos and paper as much as I'd like but that will change in September. I have watched a grandchild, or 2 or 3 for the last 7 years or so, but come September everyone will be in school. Morgan will be in Pre-K, Noah moves on to 3rd grade and Zach will be a freshman in high school.

So, being a non-working woman, I will have all kinds of free time to play. I really hope to get tons of things accomplished and I have one particular project that I really am aiming to at least start and maybe even complete. Can't mention it on here though because someone may read this.

Here are a couple layouts that I have recently done. I love when I can get lots of photos on a layout and it always makes me happy to scrap photos of Morgan. She is an easy subject to scrap.

Time for a change

Okay- so I said I would give my blog a new look on Monday. I didn't say what Monday. LOL! I am not good at editing these things and it is too late to be fiddling. I still want to add a different header but I'm trying to figure it out. Tomorrow is another day.

I have done a little scrapping and promise to share the layouts in another post.

It's just been the normal stuff around here pretty much- trying to keep the gardens thriving in the heat, enjoying the pool with the grandkids and scrapping when I can. Oh yeah...for those that don't know I went back to the hospital and had a procedure called an ERCP done. I kept having the same pain that I was getting prior to the gall bladder surgery. Turns out there was still a gallstone floating around causing the pain. After a week of living on dry toast and water (because that was all I could keep down) evreything is fine now.

Today Corey and I took Morgan for a photo shoot. A photography studio in our area was doing a child model search for new faces in their advertising. Morgan is a hit or miss kind of girl and she was definitely a hit today! We get to see the photos on Thursday. I think my wallet is in trouble. LOL!

Check back tomorrow for another new post with layouts.
