Newest addition to the baby album repertoire...

Hi all!!  This is the week that my parents leave for Africa!!  They are about to have the most amazing adventure as they are able to meet their African family (The family they've sponsored through World Vision).  They'll be leaving on thursday and coming back the beginning of February.  I'll post pictures as soon as I get some from their trip.  Keep them in your prayers as they have very long flights and have to make a quick stop in Sudan (not a friendly place!)

SARAH UPDATE:  I've accepted a full time position (still at The Home Depot).  Although I was just notified today of a few changes to the position; I think it will be mostly Monday - Friday.  I'm so excited about the idea of having a couple days off with my hubby!  We'll even be able to go to church together.  More to come on this!

Here's the latest project that I've been working on.  I'm getting a little faster at making a "first year" album.  I love the divided sheet protectors from We R Memory Keepers.  I use the 8X8 album and then add in additional divided sheets throughout so the new parents can add pictures and journaling really easy!  One full page and at least one divided sheet protector for each month as well as one for Christmas, Sleep pics, and first food (this was one of my favorite pages....so fun!  Frogs eating bugs...yum-yum ;)

My new little niece, Emiko, is due to be born at the end of February...can't wait!  The nursery is being done with monkeys and frogs. As you can tell, I tried to match that theme!

Do you see the crown in this layout?  It's the saying about kissing frogs to find a prince.  :)

Here's the first food page.  It says "Frogs have it made - they get to eat what bugs them."  Cute right?!


Gymnastics class today...

on thursdays, Parker goes to gymnastics class.  she's the youngest in the class, but keeps pace with all the other kids.  she's learned so much and loves to go and jump around!


Happy Monday...

So, it's Monday.  I have 1 1/2 weeks to finish the baby album I'm doing....and I'm not sure if I'm going to make it!!  Gotta get to work!  I think I'll cut it close.  I'll keep you posted about how it ends up.  You know I'll post pics of some of the finished layouts from the album...but in the meantime, I'd like to say just how much I love the little sprout line of paper from fancy pants.  It's so....well, STINKING CUTE!  :)

Hope you are all having a great week!
