Lookie...I scrapped and I ate cake!
(If you've read this blog long enough, that sentence pretty much fits me, doesn't it? All it really needs is some reading, writing, "Lost," and football to really be perfect!)
I did a little bit of scrapping this week. Not as much as I would have liked, but still better than nothing. I thought I'd share two of the pages that I did.
This first one I LOVE because of the story and memory behind it. (I also dig the pictures!)
That journaling on it says: "One of my favorite Thanksgiving moments from this year was when Sydney set up her own coffee and tea "shop" at Mom and Dad's house. She poured drinks from the carafes, stirred in sugar and creamer, and served it to everyone. Extra special was getting to play with Great Gran--who loved it! Sydney did so great that she even got tips!"
And then I did a couple of pages dedicated to my 40th birthday celebrations (I know, I know...my birthday was back in August. I'm a tad behind on my photos; but I'm getting there!)
I did a two-page spread that told about all the celebrations we had (the surprise party that Gary gave me at church; the party we had at my Mom's that my college friend, Cheryl, came to; and the family party we had here at home. This was the first page of it (and you can see part of the corresponding page on the table next to it).
I seriously want to get some more scrapping done over the weekend, and hope I'll be able to. I have a mini book planned to preserve my pictures of the 2008 Bama football season; and today I ordered my pictures from Christmas. I want to do a mini album dedicated strictly to Sydney's Christmas play (which contained some of my favorite memories, and photos, from this year).
If I get any of those done, I'll share them with all of you.
And now, how about a quick photo recap of a few activities from yesterday and today?
Last night was Delaney's middle school drama production, "Big Bad." (Delaney was the lawyer defending the Big Bad Wolf.) Here are a couple of pictures during the play, and then with the cast and the celebration afterwards. Let's just put it this way...Delaney is a drama queen (but in a good way!).
And then tonight we went to celebrate Gary's mom's birthday, as well as Gan Gan's 80th birthday. My cake in the shape of the number "80" worked! I was so excited! (And I love these pictures of Gan Gan with the cake!)
If I weren't now in a Sugar Coma (I also ate homemade banana pudding!), I'd do some more scrapbooking. As it is, I'm so lethargic and sugar-filled that all I'm going to do is take a hot bubble bath and watch my DVR-ed "Psych" from tonight.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See ya on the other side!
