I love spring and cant wait! Spring pictures just seem to have a glimmer to them. Here is an old picture of me and my 2 cousins with my great grandma from back in the 80s. I am guessing I was 5 . She loved the spring and summer to get out and work in the yard. She past away this past fall and I will deeply miss her. But she left behind so many good memories that no one can away from me.
Here are also some layouts I did last year for Easter. Can you find my very obvious mistake?!

I love Halloween. The fun of dressing up and going out in the crisp air for strangers candy! Ok, other than the "strange" candy, its really fun to dress up. But most of all, I love to work on Halloween scrap pages. They always seem to just flow together. So Brett and I took Miles and Mercy to Boo in the Zoo for the 1st time. It was really crowed, but the line moved fast. If you havnt been dont expect to see any animal in their costume, or any animals for that matter. There were a few. Reptile house was open, some goats to pet and monkeys that screamed at us. It was a fun adventure anyway. I believe their park there is the best feature. They have this awesome rubber mulch! So I dont have to pick it out of my shoes! This year Miles will be older and can get down and play more.

So I am just now getting around to working on Miles 1st birthday page. These have been so fun, because I love all the photos that were taking. It was such a perfect day. And each time I look at them I think of the warmth of the sun and the laughter in the air that day. I try to cherish each day with him. I know one day he will be a grown man and leave the nest. Knowing I will have all these wonderful memories is the only thing that prepares me for that.
I also took most of his birthday cards and put them in his scrapbook. I hope one day he will love to look back at them and read all the messages loved ones sent him.
( If you dont see your card or picture, Im not done yet!! )

I had a fun busy weekend! I got to go to 2 crops and share some laughs with friends and got a lot done in the meantime!
As you know I love to do altered projects. I found these ugly plaques at Mighty Dollar for one buck! Then I found the pair of dinosaurs for a buck too. I had a pack of dinosaur paper and simply covered it up! The cheapest, most simply things always turn out so darn cute!

Miles came down with a high temp on the 23rd. We thought for sure he would be sick all through Christmas. With lots of care and prayers he was feeling much better by Christmas day. We enjoyed a quiet day at home watching the snow fall and playing with Miles new toys. I did miss my family , but happy to spend it with my husband and baby.
Most of the day Miles stood in our bay window and looked at the window. He played with Handy Manny and his laptop.
The night before he helped his daddy make cookies for Santa. They turned out very well...yummy!
