My first template

I am very new to Digital scrapbooking, but not to scrapbooking in general. I have been scrapbooking since 1994. I am loving the digi world, and have learned so much in the past several months. Even though I did not digitally scrap, I was and am very good with photoshop elements. I've made a lot of graphics and banners etc.

I've really had to force myself to do this, but I've been working with Photoshop CS2 instead of my handy dandy Photoshop elements that I know so well. Well, today I was able to figure out the tools enough to make my very first 12 x 12 template!! What do you think??

I also did a layout using the template. I know the pictures are not great, and will probably eventually change that, but I like the rest. That or maybe I will find an action that can help fix the pictures. That is what I would really prefer.

I fell in love with this adorable hopscotch kit by Jessica Alger. You can see the kit and/or purchase it here!

Its been a while....

Well, I guess its been quite a while since I last posted on my blog.
Its been quite cold here. Below freezing at times even.
The kids are doing well, and Hayden is cuttinng 3 more teeth right now.

I am finding that he just loves to sing. He sings the E L M O song, and the Hayden song that I made up. The kids and I have sang Row, Row, Row your boat to him, and he tries to mimic it it along with Twinkle Twinkle little star.

He love to look at the christmas tree especially when its evening and the lights seem to shine brighter. He points his finger at the tree and coos. He hasn't had the oportunity to attack the tree yet as he has not been given the opportunity to get close to it!

Well, I guess that is it for now, I'll try to keep up more regularly!

All is well...

Hayden has gotten his first tooth!! Its not all the way in of course, but its completely broken though now.

Well, Hayden's shots went well. I really hated going to do that, but its one of those things that must be done. He did a lot better with it this time. He had 3 injections, and on the first one he did not cry at all. He just watched. He started crying towards the end of the 2nd one. It did not take him long and he was happy again. Just as if it had never happened. He is back to his normal happy self today.

Brock has his last ball game tonight. I'm going to take my camera and get some pictures of him playing. I hope I get some good ones. Its been a lot of work for him, but he has really enjoyed himself this season. He really loves his trophy!

I think I'm getting a cold. I keep sneezing, and my head is hurting with that heavy feeling. I hope I get over it fast.

Flying by....

June is really flying by. I'm not sure where the last 8 days have gone to. It seems like the kids, and I stay so busy.

Brock had his baseball swimming party yesterday, and they were awarded 2nd place in the league. They received a nice shiny Trophy with their name on it. He had a lot of fun. His last game of the season is on Thursday the 10th.

Hayden is having his shots tomorrow, so he will most likely be very fussy tomorrow.

Hayden has been having a bit of a rough time with this tooth coming in. I checked it a few days ago, and a very tiny corner of the tooth had broken thru. Today I checked and a bit more is thru now, but its still not the whole top of the tooth thru yet. It wont be too much longer now before its completly broken through, and I know he will feel better after it does.

The Kids and I grilled on our new bar-b-que grill on Sunday, and we have really gotten good at grilling chicken. It was scrumptious! It was nice and relaxing, the kids and I all went for a walk too! Its a nice neighborhood for walking, and we enjoy it.

The Rain may have gone away....

Well, It rained again on Wednesday night, and it was beautiful to watch. I sat outside watching the sky light up. You can see a lot more at the house than you could at the apt. I'm further out, less city lights. It didn't rain last night, so it was "only" 6 nights in a row!!

The kids got to go swimming at the apartment. I stayed in the apartment fed Hayden, and packed some things up.

Last Night I grilled on our new grill. Burgers, sausage, and Cajun Boudain. Yummy!! I let the kids make ice cream with zip lock baggies, and today we made orange pineapple slushies. Mallory enjoyed hers, but Brock turned down the idea of juice down. Can't slip anything past him!!

Rain, rain, go away.....

Wow! We have not once had Thunderstorms like we have had this week. For the past 5 nights after I have gone to bed and fallen asleep; the bottom has dropped out of the sky, and the thunder has been tremendous. Once the day is here again though, its full of sunshine. I think the ground is saturated now though, can't really hold much more than this.

Hayden is 6 months old today!! I will be taking some pictures of him a little later on. I think I am caught up with having all the recent pictures up on my fototime site, but not yet on my homepage. I'm having some difficulties with my coffeecup builder. Not sure what is up with it.

It's amazing to think that Hayden is 6 months old now, and last year at the time I was....Lets not go there, this year is way better :D

Summer Days.....

Well, the summer has already started here, and my children are already bored, and its only been like 3 days home!! Oh Boy.... I'm not sure how it will be after months. Maybe they just need some time to adjust to being home.

Tonight I'm grilling with some friends, hotdogs, sausage, chicken, pork etc...I'm also going to try my hand at making Margarita's for the first time. My friend gave me her special recipe. After this week of moving to the new house, it will be nice to sit down and relax for a bit!!

My First Post

Well, I am new to the world of blogging, and really not sure why I am doing this. Perhaps time will tell.
