Sliding into our routine

day by day.  This week has been a zoo.  Chris started back to his classes so we've added a Tues morning to our care time.  While we don't have the boys (and I sure miss them), we do get to see them in the mornings for a few minutes.  Last Tues, Colvin was running a low fever so we had both Leighton and him and here are the pics.

All the kids are really enjoying school and the boys have new songs to sing for us.  We are watching them tonight as the school where they go and where their mama teaches is having Open House.  I am sure I'll have some more pics to share!

Hope you are having a great week!

Home from the crop

and my sides still ache from laughing last night.  We headed up to our adjoining rooms after dinner and the judging of the Gatsby themed costume contest and it all went down hill (as in hilarity) from there.

Meanwhile, I did an astonishing 11 layouts during the crop and here there are...some better than others but they are D-O-N-E, done!

Four of Leighton (need to straighten the "who" on this one)

 Four of the boys

and three from our Med cruise with Jo and Bill

 Oh, and I won a page contest with a layout of my grandmother and grandfath er.  To be complentely honest, there were only two

Hope your weekend was as wild and wicked as ours.  We plotted and planned for the upcoming and muchly anticipated Cheeky Chics Spooktacular crop in Oct. Get all the details HERE

Fun days with the Grands

Leighton started school this past week but the boys have until tomorrow so Nana and Papa got three days in a row the the boys and mornings and after school with Leighton.  Mama had to go back to school for her work shops and Daddy had to work.  So, here are some of our shots from this past week...

The Brio train set was one of our smartest purchases for the boys...they will play with this for the longest time.

Giving Nana the 'raspberry'.

We went to Music with Mar on Tues and, as always, had the best time.

Leighton's first day of school

Colvin's self portrait photos...thinking we'll get them both little digi cameras (Disney ones) for Christmas this year or bikes from the consignment store in town that come with little training wheels or maybe

Had a wonderful time Sat. hanging out with two of the Women Who Do Lunch bunch.  Hit Whim So Doodles scrap store in St. Pete and then out for a lovely lunch.  Missing our pal Diane!

Monday is the boys' first day at their big kid school where their mom teaches.  I'll ride up with Daddy to get the Back to School/First Day photos and then it is off to scrap the day away with the Women.  Hope your weekend has been a good one.

Very excited and doubly so

My dear friend and fellow Women Who Do Lunch bunch member and I will be designing for Whim So Doodle scrapbook store in St. Pete, Fl. 

Huge congrats to all our fellow team mates and special congrats to my very talented friend, Jackie Lynch.  There was no doubt in my mind that you would make it onto the team, my friend.

Day 2 with the Grands

I'd have posted pics yesterday but 1)my camera battery died and 2) I was tired beyond compare.
We've had the summer off and now we're working back into our routine, which will change this year.  But, meanwhile, here they  are in all their glory...the Grands

Off to crop tomorrow with the Women Who Do Lunch bunch...been far too long and on Sat....we'll get together at my house.  Hope your weekend is a grand one.
