Playing Catch-up

Hi friends!
I am in shock that February is almost over!! Time sure is flying by & extremely quickly, too!!
I know I have been neglecting this blog recently & want to try to remedy that. I am hoping that I can find (or make) more time to dedicate to it. I want to post scrapping projects, but also use this blog as a memory keeper of sorts. To record things that happen in our day-to-day life.

And, in January, my baby boy turned FIVE & I never posted about his birthday (horror)!
He had a fun party at Kangaroo Jack's with a lot of his friends, & our friend Amy made his special birthday cake (his request was simply "Star Wars"). She rocks in the kitchen!
On his birthday (the kids were off of school & Drew was off work for MLK day), we had lunch at Red Robin, one of Ty's favorite restaurants. He was amazed when the waitresses sang "Happy birthday" to him! He asked us how they knew it was his birthday! And he was so very excited to be 5!!!!! (Me, not so much-they are growing up way too fast!)

Ever since November, the kids have been asking when we would get snow. They couldn't wait to go sledding. We had a pretty mild winter here with unseasonably warm days. So imagine everyone's surprise when, the day after a 65 degree Saturday, we got a few inches of snow! The kids had Monday, February 21, off for President's Day & we took advantage of the time and finally went sledding. And I think, after months of anticipation, it was well-enjoyed by us all!     

Just four days after this photo was taken, we had an almost 80 degree day & the kids were running around in shorts!! Crazy!

Before I go, I want to also share my latest layout.

 (Sorry, I still haven't figured out how to rotate my photos!) I used the Studio Calico Memoir papers & punched squares from them, then cut the squares in half to form the strip at the bottom of the page. I layered a burlap scrap, tissue paper, a journaling card & some stickers around my photo. This was really fun to make!

Time to get the kids ready for bed (& myself too. I am looking forward to curling up & reading this book).

I really hope it's not too long before I can post again!
Thanks for stopping by!
