We're home!!!

We took Benny to Butte and spent some time with him before he was shipped to Missouri for his AIT training. We were able to talk and laugh, and of course, mom cried. We ate at Fred's Mesquite Grill...yum!!... and Dad buzzed his hair... my poor bald boy!!! It was so hard to see him go, but he will get some good training at MP school!! We miss you and we are so proud of you bub!!!

Scrapping the Music

This week's song at Scrapping the Music is Craig Morgan's, That's What I love about Sundays. Sundays are special days full of Worship and family!!! Sundays are the only days that my hubby and I are off for the whole entire day...we don't see each other much during the week and spending time with each other is very precious!! We had a couple of Sundays this summer when our entire family was together!!! What a blessing!!!

My heart is full just looking at these pictures of us together with our family on Sunday...of course I had to include a picture from Matt's Great Adventure...that was a great Sunday!!

Little Red Scrapbook Reveal

I just loved working with this month's kit!!! Sassafras Lass is always a favorite and Indie Girl is no exception!!!!

I used my PTI stamps and felt on this card...way fun!!! I also used a Sizzix embossing folder...don't you just love the texture it creates!!!
The quote in this layout states: "When Mom and Dad don't understand, a sister always does. Isn't that the truth!!! I am so thankful that my kids are so close to each other!!! We are so blessed!

The photo in this layout was taken by my friend Susan Beth!!! The colors of this kit were perfect with this photo and I got the wild idea to title it 12 feet and counting....not because we are expecting new grandkids or marriages in the family at present...but we will be sometime in the near future and I can't wait, hint, hint, hint......
Today is the last Friday before school starts, and I have lots to take care of before my new schedule begins. I will be working afternoons instead of mornings and I think I am going to work into it just fine. I will still be able to run before work and that is a good thing. Slowly but surely I am seeing some results....I wish the changes would come quicker, but I will keep at it. Taking better care of myself is definitely a priority and I am going to continue to do it!!
I hope you are taking good care of yourselves my friends!!! If we don't do it, no one else will. It is amazing the demands that are put on mothers these days. We have the mentality in our society that we can do it all. We always take care of everything else first and take care of ourselves last. I hope you take time today to do those things for yourself that you need to do. We can't keep putting off for tomorrow what needs to be done today!! You are special dear friend!! Take care of you, physically and spiritually!!! You and your family will be glad you did!!
I hope you have a wonderful day!!!!
