Icky Germs

Well the flu has hit our home! Took Sara to the doctors yesterday and the rapid flu test came back positive. So they prescribed her a med that right now is currently unavailable in the country due to a shortage. I was hot!! Luckily the pharmacist at WalMart was able to make it by crushing up the pills that adults take and make a liquid out of it. And I am so thankful that she does not have the pukey flu, just the feeling crappy with a cough. Hopefully no one else gets it!! She just couldn't wait till we all got our flu shots!!

My Fave Thing To Do

Can anyone guess what that is?? SCRAPBOOKING!!! I love it! I can get lost in my own little world when I do it. I try to go to a friends at least once a month and scrap. I havent been able to do it at home lately but am going to try to at least once a week. Also twice a year I go away on retreats and get so muc done!! This year I am luckly and I get to go on three! I love these weekends away with the girls. Scrappin',eating such yummy--but bad for you--food and just hanging out with the girls. I love making books, I want the future generations of my family to know who we were, what we did and where we came from. I also learned one very important lesson in scrapbooking--its not just for the celebrations, holidays and special occasions. You need to scrap the everyday and what is important to you and your family. If you look through my books, you will find the celebrations and the holidays, but you will also find a page on Eric teaching Tina to play poker, you will find a page which entailed pretty much the worst day of my life as well of pages of my best friend and her family. I think it is also important to take pictures of the people in your life as well. Whether they are family or friends, tomorrow is not promised and you want to remember the fun times and the importance of who they were in your life.

Whats New?

I thought this would be a perfect way to restart my blog. Lots of things have been going on our life lately. First of all the week of August 17, we lost both twins. I was very sad and upset but after a great friend said something to me, it made it all seem to fall in place. She told me that the twins were just to perfect to be on this earth. For some reason that made sence and gave me peace! We are also getting ready to begin our homeschooling journey with Tina. I cant wait!! This past Sunday we got a new puppy. It is a black lab named Sammie. I have also gotten back into the swing of scrapbooking. This is just the start so stand by for more new exciting things on what we are doing!
