Same Song, Different Dance..

Or is it the other way around? I don't know.

Well, here we go AGAIN.... We are preparing for a major hurricane here in the south. The gulf coast is evacuating today. So, with Neil working at the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness and me working at one of the local hospitals we will be quite busy for the next couple of weeks. And the kids are now out of school until at least Thursday. They are excited, but without power I don't know how long that excitement will last. We will see how it goes. At least this time around it seems everyone is more prepared.

On another HAPPY note, have I said lately how excited I am about being on the 2008-2009 Creative Express design team. I still can not believe it. When things settle here I will post all of the CX girls links so you can see their beautiful work. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful team. Here are their names:

I can't figure out how to add the picture here, but here is what we are in for:

Beautiful Baby Girl


Not ready yet.......

So today, I was suppossed to put my baby into Mother's Day out at a local church. Well I have decided that I am not quite ready yet. Why is that? Perhaps it is because she is "the baby". Maybe I am afraid that her affection for me might be (partially) replaced by someone else. Why is it so hard for mother's to let go? If you figure that out, let me know. So we will go fill out the paper work at least and drop off the shot record and try again next week. At least that is what I told them this morning. Sigh......why do they grow up so fast? With that I will leave you with a layout of her that I did with one of my favorite scrapbook lines: Fancy Pants. Love them!

Organized Chaos

That is what my life feels like sometimes. That is what it is. IF only we did not need sleep, I could get so much accomplished. Well what is that saying "You can get enough sleep when you die". Hopefully that day is very far off, but for now 6 hours a night would be great.

So amongst the chaos I have found (made) the time to create a blog. So if you are interested you can read about my life. Kids, work, husband, scrapbook pages and all. If you know me at all then you know the later is a big obsession of mine. The chaos of my life is recorded on pages with stickers, buttons and what nots. I love it all.

So let me put out the welcome mat and put the coffee on. That is what we call "Southern Hospitality" here in the south.....
