Morning at our house

This morning I was awakened by a sweet voice saying "Mom, it's 6:59" (alarm was set for 7). Then she went to get ready. Alarm chimed. Another sweet voice came to wake me and said "you are the best Mom I've ever had" - yes that is his sense of humor. Then I got a sweet nose kiss. What a wonderful morning. I sometimes wonder what I will do when these days are gone and there aren't any sweet little voices to rouse me and get my day started out right? It just makes me realize that I need to enjoy the NOW! I picked NOW as my word of the year (Ali Edwards, a scrapbooker and blogger inspired me to do this). I had kind of let the NOW thoughts dull with the passing of the months, but this has rekindled my desire to enjoy the NOW. I will cherish them NOW... such a precious morning today. Here is my LO celebrating NOW as my word of the year:

Scrapbook Pages

Here are a few of the digital scrapbook pages I have done lately... some for challenges etc. When I see them all together it reminds me my scrapbooking "style" is a very eclectic mix of styles. I suppose that I scrap according to my moods or according to the photos/subjects of a page. I find it hard to do a whole album in the same style.

The Castillo in St Augustine

Here are a few of the pics of the Castillo de San Marco we visited in St Augustine, FL. It was an amazing place built in the 1600's by the Spanish.

Breakfast is in the Fridge

My MIL and SIL are coming into town tonight. What would they say if I told them that "Breakfast is in the Fridge"? They would probably laugh and suggest IHOP or Waffle House! But really I have tomorrow's breakfast in the fridge. I made an impromptu French Toast Casserole (did you know it used to be called German Toast? I think we should return to that! ) I wanted to make one of those eggs with sausage and cheese casseroles that you put in overnight, but alas, there was no sausage. So I took that recipe and one for French toast and made it into my own French toast casserole. I just have to bake it in the morning. I am not a morning person, so this works out for me. I hope it turns out ok. I think they will be surprised that I made it at all :) I am NOT know for cooking, especially in the morning! I think I am known for scrapbooking and sewing. And I think I am ok with that, I think...

Weekday Getaway

Charlie and I went for a "Weekday Getaway" (since it was a Monday and a Tuesday) the last two days to St Augustine, FL. It was wonderful. There was a ton of history to explore and shopping and food and everything you might imagine including a Key Lime Store (Key Lime Pie is just my favorite dessert)! We resolved to relax and come back to see everything there was to see! I will be posting pics soon, I have so many to weed through- you know, digital camera's and all :) Hopefully I will do that tomorrow after my work.

On another note, we are going to meet the kids' teachers in about 20 minutes and we are so excited (read I am excited!). No really, Mollie is excited too. Charles is not looking forward to school as much, but I think once it starts it will all work out fine :)

A Wordle

Got to and make your own. These are so cool, there is a great gallery filled with wordles of all kinds of things, songs, poems, and much more. You can even wordle your blog! You just enter the text and click. You can also change the colors and some of the attributes if you are so inclined.

This one is my "life verse" that I chose for my confirmation when I was an 8th grader. I am always amazed that this verse means something new to me at different times in my life. I am just so blessed that God's Word is living and active and is relevant for the here and now.

A transformed living room

I was doing some work, and it got pretty quiet. When I checked to see "what was the matter", I found this fort! What fun, wish I didn't have to work - LOL
