Crop Around the Crop

I first want to tell you what a wonderful husband I have. I come back in town from taking care of my Dad all week and my sweet husband happily watches the kids so I can go to a Crop Around the Clock.

The crop began last night at 6pm and lasted until tonight at 6pm. I stayed until 2:30am and then returned at 9am. It was so relaxing to just work on my kids scrapbook and have some just me time. It was also a very productive time. I got FIFTY yes "five oh" pages done. I am completely done with all the pics that I had printed over 2 years ago. I still have a long way to go to get caught up but I am excited about the progress made. I am finished up to Easter 2006 for both kids.

I have a scrapbooking retreat coming up in November and I my goal is to complete an album of our recent trip to Disney for Arianna's 4th Birthday.

Now I need to go through my gazillion digital pics and figure out what pics to order next from Winkflash.
I laid all of the pages out on my dining room table to get an pic of my progress. I couldn't get a great pic of all of the pages together so I took an aditional 2 of each side of the table below.

Learning to Care

The kids and I spent this week caring for my Dad. We brought him home last Friday. I am so proud of how much love and joy my kids bring to a situation. Ryan and his grinning face and Arianna and her helping hand.

I didn't know how the kids would react to being around my Dad since he is "different" doesn't have movement on his left side and can be prone to be moody at times. Both kids enjoyed his wheelchair and didn't show any fear to Grandaddy being so different. I think they enjoyed spending the time at Mema's farm with Daddy as much as I did. I hope they are learning a bit about caring for others through this situation.

Three of my favorite people

The kids stayed at the farm last weekend as I cared for my Dad in the hospital. I came home to this sight...Super Dad and 2 sacked out kids!

My Dad is now home from the hospital and the kids and I are going to the farm today to help care for him. I just wanted to share this cute picture of 3 of my favorite people:)
