So here you have it my first three layouts for the year!!! I have been kinda busy to along with this project I also am finishing up some wedding thank you notes for friends. I used the Stampin Up!

I really like this die cut it is very versatile. I don't have a Big Shot but it works in my cuttlebug. I am considering getting a Cricut not sure which one yet nor am I totally sold on the time will tell.

Is he the son we never had?

Is he here indefinitely?

Is he going to remember?

Is he going to leave a whole in our hearts when he's gone?

Just a few questions brewing in my brain over the last few months. My sister is in the service trying to start her life over. She dropped my nephew off to us in the beginning of November and it's been a joy for us all. I'm a little stressed out caring for the two of them but I am making it. He is just helping our family bond together closer. My husband values us doing things together as a family all four of us, and it's really good to see him with him...the son we never had. I know the Lord does all things well and he never makes a mistake...but I sure wish I could peek thru to the end of this chapter or just choose my own adventure (remember those i know I am showing my age).

Just some thoughts coming to a layout near

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Well we made to 2010! How many are looking forward to living in 2010? I am so gald I made it thorugh 2009, may obstacle and frustrations and issues, but the Lord saw fit to bring me through them and I am grateful!

Christmas was nice we went to my In Laws on Christmas Eve and the kids open their presents there and on Christmas Day we went to my Sister in laws, inlaw house which has been our tradition for the last few years. We had blast as always.

Christmas at home with the Danielle and AJ was interesting. Danielle was happy with her gifts. Aj on other hand was petrified of his toy and was excited as he opened it but when we turned it on he was running for cover. We bought him this Mickey Mouse helicopter riding toy that has flashing lights and propeller. Aj was not feeling that at all. We didn' take the toy back thinking he may come around but no dice yet. Here are some pictures of the kids opening their presents on Christmas.

Taking a new step with my scrapbooking we will see soon how all this turns. thanks for reading have a great day!
