Nebraska Summer Storm

It was a big one! Here are some pictures from around our house. You can read more below the pictures...

Whew! We had quite a storm last night 80 mile an hour winds that blew everything that wasn't tied down away! Lots of trees down around here - luckily we are all safe! The worst we have right now is that it blew both our gates off the fence. Still need to have someone come out and check the roof too. We lost power during the storm and it was out for 12 hours so after I sent the kids swimming to get all the furniture out of the pool we read comics by candle light (at this point it was quite an adventure for them!) Today it is time to clean up - the pool, windows, yard and house is covered with leaves and twigs from the trees.

Scrappy Time!

Here are a few layouts that I finished recently - one for my Kitchen Keepsakes album and the other just trying to finish up Christmas pictures from last year ::eyeroll:: guess I am a bit behind! I have been scrapping a lot this week but most of the layouts are for the upcoming Positively Paper Class - love how they are turning out! Anyhow, hope all is well in your corner of the world!

Monday Happenings...

Come on out and have a little fun! We are hosting a small impromptu "scrap with us" on the Feeling Scrappy message board! Hope you will stop by to visit a little and maybe do a challenge or two :) We are also really gearing up for our Positively Paper class that starts on July 7th - the Creative Team is really knocking themselves out lots of awesome techniques for you!

On a personal note - Jacob and I had a great birthday yesterday! I can't believe I officially have a teenager in the house - where did my baby go? :::sniff::: Can't help but feel a little sad that he is growing up so fast! We all enjoyed some pool time, arcade games at Dave and Busters then dinner at the Melting Pot. We were stuffed but happy at the end of the day. It was also a nice send off for Don - he leaves this afternoon for Virginia to start his new job on Tuesday. We are all sad to see him go and are just hoping this house sells soon so that we can join him as soon as possible in Virginia. This is the worst part about relocating - the being apart. So with that I need to go for now. I will share some recent layouts and a few birthday pictures in my next post...

This next page is for a book I am doing all about things that are unique to our family :)

I went to a crop last night and got several more pages "almost" done so I will post those soon...thanks for letting me share!

While the kids are away...

Mom and Dad will play! :o) All three of the kids are at camp this week and I know they are having a great time and so are we! We are getting some projects done around the house and also taking time to play! Today we went to the botanical gardens, then to Old Town Omaha for a few drinks at an outdoor pub then topped off the evening with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. (Yum!) So nice to just spend time together as a couple and not have to worry about a schedule! Just thought I would share a few of the many great photos I got at the gardens.
