More Serendipity Kits January Kit

This was by far my favorite kit so far! I love the papers by We R Memory Keepers and have used almost all of it already! It was perfect for pictures of my nephews! I very rarely do boy pages and it was a nice change. I guess their mama needs to get me more pics! :)

There was a challenge to "scraplift" or copy a page from a fellow DT member so I used one of Kory's to do this page. I just love this photo of Alex!

Another one of my BIL and nephew.

Simply Obsessed Design Team Call

I can't believe 6 months has already flown by! I was very sad to see my design team term coming to an end, when Jaime and Shauna asked if I would like to stay on for another term. Well....YEAH! Of course I do! I love everyone there. We have lots of fun and the kits are super cute! They are, however, looking for 5 new members, so if you are interested in trying out check out The details are on the home page. We would love to have you!

Can't get any cuter

than this picture! This was over a year ago in the old house when Drew still slept in the cradle in our room. I heard a little giggle and sat up in bed to see 2 tiny eyes peeking out at me. She had learned to turn over in her bed! So cute!

Simply Obsessed January Kit

I'm really sad that this is my last kit for SO. I've have totally loved working with everyone there! I will definitely be hanging around after the term is up in February.

This month the kit featured "Frost" by My Mind's Eye which is one of my very favorite companies, felt birds by Maya Road, and some super cook snowflakes chipboard also by Maya Road.

Here's what I came up with!

And this month I was in charge of the sketch for the newsletter. Here's what I came up with for that.

That cutie is Zoe. She belongs to Dena. So glad I got to scrap these pics! And this layout was chosen as Layout of the Day at CMK a few days ago!

31 Flavors

At Simply Obsessed we are doing a month long challenge--31 layouts in 31 days. Each day a challenge is posted. There will be prizes given out so be sure to stop by!

Here's what I've done so far!

Did you know it takes 11 hours to get from Dallas to our house? Those of you that know where I live, know that this is no where near the truth! Unless you were with us yesterday and it did in fact take us 11 hours!

Let's back up a few weeks ago when Jason took his 2007 Dodge truck in for the 2nd time because it seemed like the transmission was having issues. Both times they gave it back declaring that there was absolutely NOTHING wrong with it. Even I know that a truck is NOT supposed to sputter and lurch every time it takes off! Anyhow.

Yesterday we leave Sarah's apartment complex in Dallas headed to a rig near Clebourne (not sure if that's spelled right and I'm too lazy to look it up! LOL!) to try to fix the mess that our most recent ex-employee has created. We get about 30 minutes from said location and the truck starts lurching all over the place. The RPMs were revving up and up and the truck was getting slower and slower. Jason coasted to a stop on the side of the road (by this time we were thankfully far away from the freeways but also far away from anything else! LOL!).

The first person he calls is the lovely Dodge place that told him his truck was fine. He had warned them that he would be calling them from the side of the road very soon! LOL! They were no help at all. He then called the roadside assistance people who were very helpful but quite funny. The lady wanted to send someone to see if they could get the truck going. Jason asked her if there was a "magic transmission restart button" somewhere that he didn't know about! LOL! She got a wrecker service on the way which would take about 45 minutes to an hour because of the size of Jason's truck and the fact that we had a trailer with it (we had been helping Sarah move). Of course tow trucks are not equipped to carry wives and babies in car seats so we had to call Enterprise to "come pick us up". So there we are on the side of a busy road loading all our crap into the Jeep Cherokee they sent after us. Drew and I rode back to the rental car place with the guy that brought it. Drew kept staring at him and he kept trying to make small talk but I could tell he was as uncomfortable with the situation as I was! LOL! Jason went to the Dodge place with the wrecker and his truck.

The Dodge place refused to let the trailer stay with the truck and the rental car place wouldn't let us tow it so it is sitting in the wrecker yard for $20 a day! We are also paying $55 a day for a rental car (that we only needed to get us home!) that cannot be returned to the Enterprise place here in town. It must be taken to one 2 hours away! The Dodge place can't even look at the truck until Monday or maybe Tuesday. I'm sure the local Dodge place will get quite an ear full from Jason on Monday!

The company man we were headed to talk to? Not even there! LOL!

So.....11 hours after leaving we arrived home! With a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee that had everyone confused! LOL!

Oh my!

It has been a very, very long time since I posted! We had a good Christmas and New Year. Mom, Dad, Grandma, Henry, & Sarah came here and we had our first Christmas in our new house. Everything went really great! Drew LOVED opening presents! So much that she was running from person to person trying open any gift she saw! Santa brought her a Cabbage Patch Newborn with a little cradle and she immediately picked her up, grabbed the "bobble" and started feeding her. She's such a good little mama! She got tons of other stuff too. Toys galore! She apparently got my "neatness" gene--stuff everywhere! LOL! Here's one of her present opening techniques.

And a pic of her and "baby".
