A new book to honor the memory of my Dad.
Thursday, August 9, 2012
I haven't posted in a year?! Really? I think it's because Facebook has taken over my free time. I can post things on FB that I normally used to post here on Blogger. I don't want to get rid of Blogger though! I wish I still had time to do Try it Tuesdays. I'm busy with 4 teenagers and a 5 year old. Not to mention all the other things that I do and also my Dad being quite sick lately. For the past month & a half I've been taking care of him and stressing over the health problems he has. Speaking of that, if you are reading this and you don't know the wishes of your elderly parent, ask them! Get any info you might need about their insurance, finances and Will. All of those questions will be asked of you if your parent goes into a hospital. I wish we hadn't waited so long to ask the awkward questions about my Dad's wishes. As tough as it might be, it's best to just be blunt and get those things in writing.
Anyway, I don't want to lose any of my past Blogger posts or photos, so somehow I'll have to figure out how to make a nice book out of them. My fear is that Blogger will shut my blog down before I can do those things since I haven't been active lately.
Please keep my blog up and running Blogger! Be nice! haha...

Until it becomes a reality, I'll keep dreaming.

This quote is getting a bit over-used, but who cares. I still think it's funny. I'm currently reading the book, "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies". The same Jane Austen story with a bit of brain munching mixed in. Zombie's are all the rage, and I'm sooo buying into it. I guess my 12 year old son and I finally have something in common!

Try it! It's free to just insert your photos and create a project. I guarantee that you will want to order when you see how gorgeous your project can be!
They have high quality cards, books, calendars etc. I made a photobook awhile back of my trip to France. It turned out beautifully, so I ordered a second one. I love how I can design a photo card and see how it will look before printing. Plus, they have lots & lots of designs, colors, fonts etc.
You can even upload a digital scrapook layout if you roll that way. Make your own scrapbook that is bound and beautiful.
Go check it out! And if you're lucky, you might just receive one of my own Christmas cards if you are on my list! If you don't get one...well....I guess I just don't like you that much. KIDDING!!

My friend Forrest has made it into the top 100 for his Pepsi Refresh project! He now has another chance to make his project come to life! The top *10* ideas will win $25,000!
Please think about voting for his Liberty Swing project. He wishes to buy and install this unique swing for people with disabilities in the West Michigan area. This swing would allow people with disabilities to join in the same fun that other children do at the park. A swing that holds a wheelchair! What a fantastic concept!
And a *bonus* for you......
Vote for this project and win goodies from my friend Megan at Shabby Blogs!
You know her and love her blog backgrounds, so go vote! Then post on her blog that you have voted and you just may win some super shabby goodies to decorate your blog! Tweet or Facebook about it for more chances! Put the widget on your blog and get yet another chance! Do it! You know you want free stuff! And along with winning free stuff, you are helping others to better their lives. Thank you!

I promised that I would blog about my trip to France, so here goes!
I will have to do it in more than one post because truthfully, we took over 1,300 photos on this trip. No, I won't bore you by posting all of them! ;)
My stomach was in knots before this trip because I would be 4,000 miles away from my children and I was soooo worried about Ava. I wouldn't be close enough to just come home if she needed me. It was killing me inside knowing I couldn't calm her or comfort her when she needed me. But...everything went fine! Sure, there were times when she was a bit sad and the older girls had a hard time getting her to calm down and go to sleep at night. But all in all, she was fine.
And I can't let the post go by without *THANKING* my family and friends for taking over for me. I appreciate their willingness to help and the love they showed my children in our absence. My mind was actually more at ease knowing my children we being cared for to the full extent. You know who you are.....THANK YOU!
Ok, our trip to Le Mans was beautiful! I actually enjoyed being in this small town MORE than I enjoyed Paris. Le Mans is full of history and rich architecture. So beautiful. It made the nauseating plane trip well worth it (That's right, I felt sick during the whole 8 hour flight).
The first night we were on our own for dinner. Instead of taking a taxi to a restaurant we decided to eat at the hotel.
