About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

Week in Review

It's been a busy here week in Alabama. Here are a couple of layouts I literally threw together Sunday to take to Paige. I promised myself I would try to do a layout a month for her of the kids..... so far so good.
The first one is McKane's birthday at the skating rink. He had a ball. The kids skated, played pool, ate junk and had a blast. Even Ellis, who's 3 got in on the action.


 

Kayleigh attended a winter dance at her school in January with Christian. They are no longer a "couple" but it was still her first dance and they looked adorable.

 

This is the beginning of my studio, where I will scrapbook, paint, create, whatever I want to do. I am so excited.

 

Mike covered the walls with wood, I wish I had a "before" picture but I will keep you updated. All those little white dots you see are covering the staple holes, I did that part! He went staple gun happy, there were about a million. It will be a pale turquoise and strips that cover the seams will be a darker shade so it will appear striped. Can't wait. Hopefully some of my Georgia friends who are always promising to come scrapbook with me will now come. We shall see.

 

Last but certainly not least, McKane is playing baseball for the Red Sox. I did not buy the pictures they were selling but took my own. When I went to pick them up, Walmart asked for a copyright wiaver. They didn't believe I took them. So I kinda have a big head. Go Me!! Isn't he cute?? I promise to blog more for those of you who care. Have a wonderful week.
