Happy Halloween...

Ah, spring is in the air. Okay, we've still got some snow on the ground, and the bitter cold is fresh in my memory, but the last few days have been beautiful, and I'm thinking positively! A little more rain should wash away the rest of the snow, and we'll be singin'.

Life is good here. I'm still working for Quartet with Carl in the mornings, home with the kids in the afternoons.

Carson has become quite the morbid little storyteller, with all his stories involving some kind of unhealthy end for some character or another. Is this supposed to happen at 4? Poor, poor George Shrinks. I won't go into details, because not only is it morbid, but it's also gross.

He just got his very first report card, and it basically said that our son is a genius. Which we knew. :D He's doing very well, and apparently his math skills are quite developed for his age. His teacher is also impressed with his vocabulary. He still gets upset easily, but he's on the young end of the class, so it's normal.

Hayley is doing well. She didn't get a report card this time (they stagger the report cards for the Junior and Senior Kindergarteners), but I spoke with her teacher, and she's doing very well too. Her reading is fantastic, I'm so proud of her.

I am very excited to be going away next weekend to ScrapFest in Kitchener. I am meeting up with a bunch of women from an online forum whom I chat with every day, but have never met in real life (except for my sister-in-law Christine of course, we've met ;)). They're coming from Nova Scotia, Washington State, and all over Ontario. I can't wait to meet them. I'm also taking two classes with Jen Starr while I'm there, and planning to do some shopping. Yay!

Speaking of scrapbooking, here are some layouts I've done lately.

Some Scrapbook Layouts

I've been focusing on digital scrapbooking a lot, but last weekend we had an online crop at Scrap Central, and I decided I was going to do all paper layouts. It was great to play with the papers, inks, and tools again. These are the layouts I did.


Hard to believe we're into 2008. The older I get, the quicker the years fly by.

Things are going well here. I think that anyone who reads this blog (if there's anyone left) got our Christmas newsletter, so you know what's new with us. Not much has changed since January.

I've decided I'm going to start to post some pictures here and some of my scrapbook layouts as well. I haven't been doing the flickr thing lately, so I figured I'd try this instead. I get overwhelmed trying to get everything up and end up doing nothing, so I figure I'll casually post pictures and layouts here and there, and try not to worry about it.
