It Rained!

Finally! We had a couple of short thunderstorms during the night - gooood sleeping weather. Then it rained again this morning - the guage read an inch and a quarter. We really, really needed that and the golfers are probably singing praises to the gods, since they are responsible for watering the course.

I'm looking forward to another weekend visit with Alicia and the kids. This time they're bringing their boxer, Pepper. It should be fun! The two dogs usually get along. I'm sure Bandit will be happy to show Pepper how much fun she can have in the water.

This was taken last weekend. All you have to do is say the word "swimming", and he is off and jumping into the lake.

Weekend Report

It's Monday, and I'm winding down after a very fun weekend with the kids being here.
Just wanted to show off what I accomplished in the scrapping department. Here are the TWO layouts I finished - yep, I got one more done to all the ones Alicia did. But I'm pleased with the way they turned out. I used photos from the past - way past! The first one is about John before we were married.

This one is from when we were living in an apartment waiting for our house to be built in Ft. Walton Beach just before John II was born in 1972. I told you they were from WAY back!

When we weren't scrappin', we were either eating, or doing this:

It was a fun weekend!

Welcome to my world...

This is my very first blog post! We've been spending the weekend with the kids here - scrapping, sitting by the lake, jet-skiing, kayaking, scrapping, eating, playing video games, scrapping.....well you get the picture.
I get so much inspiration from Alicia when it comes to getting my mojo going, but it seems it works in reverse, because, to my ONE layout, she has completed FOUR!
We're having a great weekend, and on top of everything else, she helped me get my blog started. Thank you, dear daughter of mine!
