More pages, and TJ's chest hair...

I made some more pages with some new kits from Gina Marie Huff at WW. I'm on her creative team and get to use all of her amazing products on my pages. I made these two pages one from a Halloween kit (All Hallows Eve) and one from a sweet little boy kit (Such a Boy). I had to post these so that you all could see mine and TJ's stinkin' AWESOME costumes. Our cool next door neighbors had a party and this is what we came up with. It was so funny doing his make-up and dressing him up. The best part was that he wore a low cut dress so that his chest hair would poke out, AND he didn't shave either!! It was so funny, needless to say he had all kinds of respect for women afterward for putting make-up on every day, for having to wear a bra and do our hair.

I found these CUTE pictures of TJ and Drew that I took back in July. I'd forgotten about them!! They're so cute, I'm glad I was able to find them and scrap them :_

Three Little Witches

Drew learned a new song at school this week. I love that he loves to sing!! He's been singing it all week and shows anybody who will watch and listen to him. I get a huge kick out of it :) My favorite part is how he enunciates "little." And I love how he has no inhibitions in front of the camera-I mentioned that I would like to record his song today, and he begged me to do it ALL day. Great singing buddy!

*p.s. I take all my videos with my still camera and I took this one vertically, so sorry about the difficulty in viewing! :)

What I did this weekend

I decided to take a little time for myself this weekend. I left Thursday night and stayed in a hotel downtown for two nights. It was so nice, to be able to relax, sleep in, read, take photos and also to do some digi-scrapping. Life has been so crazy these past couple of months, and the summer was really busy too. I haven't scrapped since April, and I was really missing it. It felt SO good, to be able to do this fun hobby again. Here are the pages I made...

p.s. Thanks T.J. for letting me go do this, I'm so thankful! I love you sweetie!!

My Sweet Drew...

I have been enjoying my little boy so much lately. I am really loving his age right now, Kindergarten, his curiosity, cello lessons, reading the Magic Treehouse series together. Because of cello and homework...and all the reading ;) we've had a lot of time together. We've always been close, but I feel that we're so much closer now. I just love this stage... I love his involvement. I just signed him up for Basketball!
And he is so sweet. Sure, he has his sassy moments. But, he always want to hug or cuddle. He loves to come up to me and hold my hand, or he just likes to be with me for whatever I'm doing.
Last week, while Cam was napping we got out Drew's sand art kit. He had so much fun creating-something he usually doesn't like to do.

Yesterday, I bribed him (which usually doesn't take much, he'll always cooperate when I get my camera out!) with candy corn pumpkins and got my favorite photo EVER. of Drew. I love how he'll pose every time.

Today, Drew was supposed to come straight home for singing class. He came flying around the corner on his scooter and right when he got to the garage, I said "Hey buddy, how was schoo-" But before, I could answer, he started bawling. I started asking if he was okay, thinking he'd fallen down, or gotten in a fight or had gotten bullied or something. No, he started saying how bad his head hurt. He told me how bad it had hurt all day at school, but how he was afraid to tell his teacher. Poor little guy. He was pretty warm, he was shaking and was really upset. So I put on my best comforting mommy hat and got his blankies, a drink, and turned on a movie. I just sat with him, and it hurt to see him feel so bad. Drew is not usually one who complains about pain or discomfort, so I knew he had to feel bad.

I'm so glad I can call this little boy mine. He makes me so happy.
