I'm bursting at the seams!

With creative ideas that is.  At least I hope they are creative.

Things are getting better with my youngest one, but life remains busy.
I am starting to work on a few things here and there, but since I have such limited amounts of time to work on stuff, and such an abundance of ideas to start on...
Weeeelll, lets just say I'm kinda like a kid in a candy shop, bouncing from idea to idea and not quite able to finish any of them.

Great news though, I just picked up the cheapest printer that Wal-Mart had to offer so that I can start on some more stuff! My last one got sold at a yard sale because we had to take out a second mortgage on our house to buy more ink for the thing.
*Insert some very unlady like thoughts about the people that price printer ink*

But keeping all things in perspective here...

I have no idea why Jack's arm is tucked into his overalls.
There is nothing wrong with his arm that we are aware of;-)

I am constantly reminded of how quickly these little people we were given are growing up.
 People often say "They grow like weeds!", but who likes weeds?!
 They grow like beautiful green grass. So soft and pretty when it's taken care of, but brittle and ugly when it's not.



So, I'm endevoring to enjoy watering the grass as much as I can! I pray for patience some days, cry some days, and just sit back and laugh on many days.

We are truly blessed.

What cute pictures!! What darling little grandsons!! Did you do the pictures?

TheVirginiaHouse said...

Yup, took the myself. Not such an easy task let me tell ya, but so worth it because if I hate the pics, I can just blame myself and take them again!
