new to the whole blogging thing....

OK- So I know what blogs are, I guess i just look at mine differnetly. For me it is alot easier than a journal, one that i share but i do not really think about that part.Plus, i can just log in, i have a problem finding things!!! I like the thought of having somewhere to go and look at all the things i was either thinking., feeling or doing.

I have a list of blogs in my favorites: 1 of my many favs are of coarse Rachel, my queens of scrapland, Amy, Marie, layle(can't wait till the class in September!!!!),Stephanie(thanks for the new company is on its way!!!) and Ali(she makes me want to have another baby, they just grow up tooo fast!!!)

I have a question though for all you bloggers....
*what's up with all the freebies? I know there are lots looking for something for free but to have 4 out 5 posts linking other blogs with give-a-ways? I guess i do not see it.

*Do you think it is OK to post pictures & layouts of children who are not your own? how about if you took the pictures?

So, let me know what you think!

it's 12:30am need to finish getting ready for the EXPO!!!! I had to do a late shift, the girls wanted to play Yahtzee.

till the next time!!

How do I do it???

I seem to be asking myself this alot lately.....

I love what I do & would not change it for the life of me but I am tired!!!

I have super supportive husband, 3 girls....2 of which are starting to love helping their mom....i bribe them with scrapping supplies!!! The best part is when we are done we make a pack to scrap...they are so amazing.....One of my MANY goals is to start an online gallery with there work-they love going to the scrap happy home page and seeing the pages of them!!!

PLUS, i have super friends!!! You are there when i need to is so nice to have friends who are just friends, no drama!!! I have battled with cutting the drama out of my life for the last few months and after stepping back i am completely amazed how the true friends i have are real. No drama!!! Just fun!! yeah, we have moments but true friends can say "hey, sorry i was just having a bad day, here's your magazine back...." Each have there own personalities, just like me but i do believe as you grow as friends you realize "so, what" that person is still a part of my life and i would not change them for anything!!! Ok-starting to ramble.....thanks girls, i would not be who i am without your unconditional support!!!

Till the next time!!!!

Kangaroos in Ohio?

Did you know we have kangaroos in Ohio? Yes, I know we do not but my 3 year old is sure that the neighbors dog is a kangaroo!!!

here is an Addison story.....(i wish i would have had a blog 12 years ago when i had bailey, then Maya....i could have told MANY funny stories, now i can not even remember to make sure my shoes match!!!!)

OK, back to the story....When we headed out for the day, I forgot the back pack so i had Addy wait in the garage. Here she came, screaming "it's gonna get me" my response "what?" Addi: "the kangaroo" after looking outside and spotting the neighbors dog, i let her know it was a dog, not a kangaroo. Insisting that the kangaroo has black stripes and is a kangaroo i embrace it. we have kangaroos in Ohio, they are little for a short time, i need to enjoy it more.

Swimming to Christmas carols?


Abby & Bailey

Addison & Carter

Who would have thought? My kids are huge swimmers, so come winter they are itching to get in the water!
Ron's brother Kevin (who finally moved back from Mississippi, Thank heaven!!!) & his family were kind enough to invite us to Kalahari in Sandusky for a night of water park fun! The girls loved it! Bailey invited our 4th daughter, Abby along. Ethen & Carter tagged along for the ride too. 6 kids! We survived!

Swimming to Christmas was a little weird though!
