ok! maybe not necessarily the store but the girls that worked in the store with me... It's been a year, this week, since the store closed. We still try to keep in touch (well.. some of us.. hint.. hint)...

So..I know.. this is a Christmas Layout... but it is the only one that I have that has most of us girls in it...

I miss you guys!!

I was going through all of my picture files the other day, getting them all ready to burn to a DVD (I had a friend lose some of her pictures, because her hard drive crashed)... I came across these pictures of JaCee. I don't even remember taking them and I probably hadn't seen them since I first uploaded them.. It's always nice to see new pictures that you, didn't know you have... These ones especially because they are soooo cute... It sure does make me miss her though...

Half Dose is better

Well, I don't want to bore you too terribly much about my recovery from a tonsillectomy. But it's consuming my day right now...

I have to tell you if you are ever in Idaho/Northern Utah area and are in need of some small town care... Franklin County is the place to go... They spoil you..

The lab department is the best.. Speaking of lab departments(in any hospital), I don't think they get enough credit for what they do. They take your blood and it hurts... I know this... but without their abilities we might never know what is wrong with us.. The tech who put in my IV was so kind to my son.. She took the time to explain everything about IVs to him. I asked him if he liked hearing about stuff like that and he said, "Yah, 'cuz it's cool"... I'm thinking medical school, maybe..

So we bought Tate this little set from PlayMobile to help him process what was going on (mom in the hospital can be quite scary, especially for him). It has a woman in a hospital bed with an IV, really cute.. Well he spent all day caring for his patient, then he comes in to me and says, "Is there anything I can get for you sweetie?" He is such a great kid...

Well, I'm HOME!!

I made it... Can't eat anything "solid" for a while... as long as I'm medicated I feel pretty good... I think I might just lay in bed for the rest of the day and digi-scrap.. YAY!! Although, I think I should be sleeping..LOL

I have the nicest dh in the world he has treated me like a Princess.. He's trying his hand at cooking a roast for dinner for him and Tate(this should be interesting). I'm sure it will be yummy... I think I need to be careful 'cuz I could get used to this LOL!!!

I'm hoping this will be the end of my sore throat episodes, that would be nice!!

Sorry no pics.. I didn't really think anyone would want to see before and after shots of my tonsils.... I didn't, yuck!! But hey, if you really want to see some, I'm sure you could Google it...

I probably should close now.. I think I might be sounding a little loopy and later will have to delete this post...

Our First Home

Ok!! So this wasn't the first "house" we lived in after we were married... It is, however, the first one we were able to call "HOME".. We lived in the basement, underneath a really neat elderly couple... JaCee was born in this house, we had a garden, and were sooo poor...good times!!!

This is my 5th digital scrapbook page... I'm learning about shadows.. I know ..not perfect.. but I'm getting better...

Everything on this page is made by "Manu's Designs", "Timeless Journey" kit from her store Digital Scrap Spirit Store..... except the tag that says home it is from Tina W...
