A couple of weekends ago I spend a few hours in my scraproom and made a few layouts. It’s been a LONG time since I did that! It felt good! And yesterday I went to an all day crop and got about 50 Christmas and Hanukkah cards done for the soldiers so that also felt good! Thought since I hadn’t blogged in a long time I’d share my layouts and of course the first snowfall story. I would share photos but for some reason I am unable to upload them right now!
I didn’t take photos of the cards, and they aren’t anything fancy because it was more about quantity not quality so you’ll just have to take my word for it that I got them done! Oh and my mom and my friend Pam were witnesses!
We also had two birthday’s in October so I am officially the mother of two teenagers now because my baby turned 13! Jake is now legal to get his license (how did that happen)? He starts drivers-ed in 10 days! He could have been driving by now but since football didn’t end until the 31st of October and took up every minute of his free time he had to wait (which I did not mind one bit). Honestly, I think 16 is too young to start driving these days!
And now for the not so fun stuff, we were without power for 5 days after the October snow. We got about 6 inches of very heavy wet snow last Saturday night. The kids missed school for a few days. So they have already missed their 3 snow days between these and the “Hurricane” on the first day of school. Not off to a good start at all! Luckily we have a small generator so we had heat, we did not lose our food in our fridge and we had a few lights. We have a gas stove too so I could cook. A lot of other people we much worse off so I did not complain, much! Wink Wink!
Other than that, things are about the same here, I’ve been spending all my free time on Cards for Soldiers.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, I’ve got to go do some stuff around the house before everyone gets home from Maine!
