What We've Been Up To

I can't believe it's been a week since I posted anything! So first up is the scrapping I've done this week. Scrap-Friendzy is having a sketch fest (they post a new sketch every day) and while I haven't been able to do as many of them as I'd like, I have gotten a few done.

Journaling for "BrokenHearted":
I remember this day and moment so well because it was Natalie's first day of preschool. We had gone just outside the door to take some pictures of her with her backpack. I looked back and saw you standing at the door like this. I knew you were upset because we had left you inside, but I also knew you'd feel this same way about Natalie leaving for a few hours a week. But don't worry sweet girl, taking Nat to school was hard on both of us. What are we gonna do when she goes to kindergarten? What am I gonna do when you both are old enough for school? I'll be just a little bit brokenhearted.

Journaling for "Playground":
We just happened to get the cabin in the State Park right next to the playground. Natalie was constantly asking to go play. She would have stayed for hours if we let her.

And then this last one is for this week's challenge over at Scrap Whispers. Our challenge was to make a layout or card using purple and turquoise. Come on over to the blog and play along!
So what's been going on this week? Well, it has been extremely cold here. We got a little bit of snow (less than an inch, but that's a lot for us!) on Thursday and it is still on the ground in places.
Here are the girls trying to catch snowflakes.

We also had a very exciting game to watch this past week. The Alabama Crimson Tide won the National Championship!! I haven't missed a game all season and can you believe I fell asleep during the 4th quarter!!! I missed the most exciting quarter of the whole game! But I'm glad they won it and I did wake up in time to see them accept the trophy. ROLL TIDE!

And last of all, I'm gonna have a proud momma moment here.
A couple of days ago Natalie showed interest in writing her name. So we've been working on it with a lot of help to get it right. Yesterday, Abigail was napping, I was playing on the computer and she was playing in the living room. She exclaims to me that she's written her name all by herself. When she brought me the board and I saw what she'd actually done....

I couldn't believe it! And you know my first thought was to grab the camera! :)
Have a good week everyone!
