Past projects

Saturday mornings

I love Saturday least ones like today. I don't like the cold weather outside part, but what's inside today has been nice. The kids slept til after 7:30. Sarah Beth came in and got in bed with us until Ryan got up, and then he joined us. It was so nice to all cuddle up together under the covers! Both kids woke up in good moods, so we've had fun. Then I made pancakes, eggs and sausage for breakfast...with heart and star pancakes for the kids. Quite nice, I must say. They've already been bathed and now we're just playing while Daddy is at his umpire meeting.

I really have some crafty things to do today...I'm just hoping I find time. I'll have to post some pictures when I'm done.

How can kids be my greatest joy and my greatest challenge? Sarah Beth can be sooooo much fun...and then turn around and jump on my last nerve or push me to my limit. Ryan is absolutely adorable...but he says very few words, and while I try not to let that bother me, I wish he would talk, especially when I hear of other kids his age saying the cutest things.

I have, however, managed to find some time to scrapbook a little recently. Of course, it would be slightly better if I was scrapbooking for myself. Instead, I am making a birthday gift for my mom...layouts ready to go so she can finish them quickly. I think she'll like it; at least, I hope she will! I am seriously considering making "kits" like this for myself on a regular basis. It's pretty cool to have layouts that just need pictures.
