My Brave...and Awesome Husband!

A few weeks ago, I found out that one of my old roommates and good friends from Ricks was going to be having her first baby shower this past weekend. I had not seen Sarah for almost 5 years and at first didn't even think that I would be able to go since it was in Portland, OR. I mentioned it to Bubba and he said that he would watch the kids for the weekend so that I could go. So I got a flight to Portland last Friday and spent 3 wonderful relaxing days there catching up with Sarah, making baby shower preparations, and helping her organize all of her baby stuff. It was so nice to see her again and get such a long break! The kids had a great time with Bubba and stayed super busy that weekend....he did a wonderful job of taking care of them, and the house was spotless when I got home too....what a STUD!!!!! Thanks again babe!

Kyle and Shallan's Wedding

Last Friday (the 15th), Bubba's stepbrother Kyle got married and it was a great day! Everything was beautiful and the weather even cooperated...we had a wonderful time being with family and celebrating! Savannah was really sick that day and didn't move at I don't think she really had a great time but she acted good and she looked really cute! Bubba and his cousin Adrian sang a couple of songs at the reception and did a wonderful job. We were all exhausted by the end of the day, but we had a great time! Congratulations Kyle and Shallan!

My New Addiction!

So I've been trying to find a new hobby and I think I've finally found it! I've always liked scrapbooking, but it takes up so much space and it's such a mess to have everything laying out all the time. Not to mention that all the fancy little decorations are kinda pricey....anyways, I've had a hard time getting motivated to scrapbook, which explains why the last page I have scrapbooked is when Savannah was about 2 weeks old! I heard someone mention digital scrapbooking a while back, so I've been doing some research and finally decided to get started. I downloaded my trial version of Photoshop Elements and have been trying to figure it out since I've never used it before. I have spent hours finding free "kits" online and it is so addictive! So I've now done 3 layouts since I started this whole process on Saturday, so I thought I'd share. I'm not really that good yet since I don't know anything beyond the basics, but I'm pretty excited at how my pages are turning out!
