Track #10

So I scrapped another layout this weekend. My 2011 goal is one a week and so far, I'm right on track!

Track #10

Journaling reads:
Ever since Shawn burnt us a CD with some of our current favorite songs on it, you want to hear track #10 constantly. The song is “All the Right Moves” by One Republic and you first heard it on Band Hero and “loved it” before it ever began to get radio play. Well now, it gets played “everyday”, over and over again for as many times as Mommy can stand to listen to it before changing it. Another favorite on this CD is “Fireflies” by Owl City.

Picture #4 - January 4th, 2011 (Tuesday)

Back to School

Took these pictures of Little man as I was dropping him off at school this morning. Christmas break is over and he is officially half way through his 4th grade year (year round school)....he wasn't thrilled about going back, but he didn't give me any trouble either....

Picture #3 - January 3rd, 2011 (Monday)

Today was a family day! Yay! Gotta love those. Garrett hadn't gone back to school yet, I had the day off from work, and Shawn also had they day off! Those days rarely ever happen anymore....

Most of the day was just spent completely lounging around the house, and then we went to Golden Corral for dinner....afterwards we made a stop at the Game Stop to let Garrett spend his Game Stop Gift Card ....he got an X-Box 360 for Chirstmas this year (too add to his other game systems)....

Game of Choice tonight was - Army of Two / 40th Day

Picture #2 - January 2nd, 2011

Jackie came over today....I miss her terribly, but have to realize that she is an adult now, and out on her own, and that I should be thankful for the time that we do have together....

Anyhoo, her, I and Garrett all went to lunch at Zaxby's, and then came home...where the three of us all sat around the dining room table with our laptops and George (the bird - (more on him later)) hung out.

*Jackie & Darla

Todays picture is of Jackie and her new baby Darla - a Jack Russell puppy. She has a huge, huge heart when it comes to animals and helping them out. Darla is a pound rescue puppy that had ringworms early on, and is now perfectly healthy & happy....

Picture #1 - January 1st, 2011

My brother Gene recently retired from the Navy - actually last week sometime. He & his family are in the process of moving back here to North Carolina. On Saturday the whole family came over. I had to run some errands, and my nephew Riley wanted to stay with me. Keep in mind I haven't seen this child in over three years, but regardless, he wanted to stay. I had Garrett for a little while today as well, and the two of them played together nicely. Next time, Little Miss Rayne gets to stay with me. It really was a good day, and it reminded me of just how much I truly do miss my family being around.....

Project 365 Picture a Day in 2011

Well I think I made it half way through the year in 2009, and didn't even dare to attempt it in 2010. This year, the goal is to do it, and finish it. That's the goal. Period.

Another Layout to Share with You.

Well unfortunately all of you know that once I started my website over a year and a half ago, my blogging & scrapbooking took a back seat. Hopefully with the New Year and a few personal resolutions that I've made, that will all change soon...wish me luck!

Anywoo, I offered to post one of the Blue Plate Special Challenges on the website this past Saturday for Sketchy Saturday. Sandy Liles provided me with the sketch and I created my layout of G-man out in the snow the day after Christmas! It was definitely a fun sketch to use, and I can see myself using it again!
