Twas the night before "The 1st Day" of school

And all through the house, the kids were all giddy and scampering like a mouse!
Aubrie is dancing and humming a tune, Skye is bouncing around crazy as a loon!
I finally got them bathed and tucked in their beds, with visions of school clothes and back packs dancing in their heads.
Tamon is "cool" and too old for all that...but he still said "Good night Mommy" as I gave him a pat.
Dayne has his clothes picked and Chance has his too...And you thought only girls were clothes savvy...HA!....fooled you!
Now I sit here pondering my day, and there area few thoughts that I'd like to share with you...if I may.

My kiddos are all growing, faster than I'd like...they can ALL tie their own shoes...and even ride a bike.
The babies they once were...are forever gone away...and I am watching them grow...faster each day.
My time with them is dwindling, their dependence upon me is almost null.
But life with five kids...will NEVER be dull!

I thank the Lord for my blessings and the gifts He has bestowed...for Life is a treasure, just waiting to unfold.
My kiddos are now sleeping, and tomorrow when they wake, the chaos will start all over again for goodness sake!
But I will cherish those moments, and savor them all...for my kids are my LIFE...and I love them ALL.

Ok...enough of the mushy stuff...want something SUPER COOL!!!??? ScrapBook Deals 4U has revealed their September kits...and there are 5...yes FIVE of them!! Here is the link to the SD4U Blog so you can take a look! I will post the sneaks with my Cherry Hill kit keep a look out!!

Back from Brazos Bend

WHAT a FABULOUS weekend in the woods! We took the kids camping over the weekend to Brazos Bend and OMG!!! We saw alligators up close and personal, fought with raccoons who kept trying to steal our food, and I got a TON of gorgeous pictures of the kids!!! I took over 400 photos, and I can't decide which ones to scrap first. We roasted marshmallows, took nature hikes, rode bikes down the hills, and I even snuck in some photos of Skye kissing Daddy and all of the kids taking a break from the heat and spraying one another with the water hose. I can't wait to get my DT kits....and I am sooo hoping they will work for a few of these pics! I am already imagining some October Afternoon "Cherry Hill"...or even some 3 Bugs "Spread your Wings"...the nature photos would work with either!! really doesn't matter, because I will LOVE whatever supplies I get and make them work with my fabulous Photos! I have to download some pictures...but I will try to get that done within the next few days. Just be prepared for some Brazos Bend layouts in my near future!!

August {SAS}sy DT Reveal!

This month, I was so excited to use the Sassafrass Lass "Me Likey" line! Lauri knew what she was doing when she sent this to me! I was a little scared at first I will admit. This line is so bold and bright and animated! It is so stinkin' adorable...but busy. I gathered a few thoughts and started putting them together to form an actual layout...and within no time...I had seven layouts that I am very happy with! I am anxious to see what comes next month...with TWO DT kits!!!!
