Catching up and a little meme action

I know, I'm lacking in the posting department. A little thing called life has been busy.

I had my fabulous weekend at Camp Crop-a-Lot with my best friend. It was not a five-star hotel, but we had great laughs over sleeping on a bunk bed, having a shower where the water was just a smidge warmer than the air and we may have thrown in a little 'husband humor' with our tag line 'It's THEM'. Oh it was fun...just to laugh, eat, scrapbook and laugh a little more.

I was able to get the kids' ABC books put together...they are not super elaborate, but since they are for the kids to handle, I didn't want to put too much of my 'good stuff' into them. I still need to do some computer titles for the pages, but I promise, just as soon as that part is finished, I will post pictures of the albums. (I hope to work on them tomorrow and Friday, we'll see)

Wednesday, we put Evan in a toddler bed...lifting nearly 40lbs into a crib was getting old. We borrowed a gate for his bedroom door so he won't be able to roam the house at night. He did great at nap time, very proud of him, and he stayed in bed when I put him down for the night. Such a big boy!! I'll post a picture of his 'new room' soon, too.

"A Charlie Brown Christmas".....I love Charlie Brown....Watching the Peanut"s specials is a family tradition at each holiday (that there is a movie for).
I love Linus reciting from Luke. So sweet.
Have a great day!

Hey girl, where do you live? I'm going to a scrapbooking B&B with a friend in May. I've never done it before and I wondered if you lived close enough to recommend one if we don't care for this one.

Also, do you make your own embellishments? That's something I started to do lately...make embellishments from my scraps and just keep them in my embellishment box with my other store-bought ones and I wondered if this was a common thing I just didn't know about, or if not very many people do this?
