Check it out! These are the grandkids on the Lahr side with Grandma on her birthday. It's safe to say that it's difficult to get 8 kids to cooperate all at the same time. This is the best one I was able to get.

These are a couple recent layouts. It is so sparkly clean! - is one of my sketches. Peach Cobbler - is a sketch from

Here are a couple photos taken when we went to Noah's Lost Ark with Charlene and Kyle. It was so great! I can't wait for our next adventure...hint! Hint, Charlene! :)

On to the eggs of it all! This bucket, complete with a paper towel and dryer sheets, is what the kids use to collect the eggs. On this particular day, the White Rock chickens decided to start laying thier eggs on the hay bail that we use to feed the cows. I think it was lucky that Charlie caught them in the act, because really...who's gonna look there??? We finally had a large egg that had triplets - see photo. I believe that Nick ate that one. Talk about excitement in the household! It was very cool.

The picture of Blake is showing the difference in the size of eggs from the Rhode Island Reds (left) and the White Rocks (right).

And lastly, we have the darling little ones with their Rock Star attitude going on. They had a slightly different party at school. Instead of the usual Halloween party, the school took a day, or part of the day to study geology. The kids had a great time and did get some candy, for which they were grateful. Obviously, they were allowed to dress all Rock Starry :)

Birthdays...getting older...Kaila...WOW! I can not believe that 6 years ago I was on my way to the hospital to deliver this lovely girl. It blows my mind how fast the time has gone. Kaila chose chicken wings, cookies 'n cream ice cream and strawberry cake (if anybody will eat it, she said) for her birthday dinner. She received a Yorkie in a bag (as she says), a nail/tattoo craft kit, magic wand, tierra and a ballerina dress from us. She also got her first Webkinz from Grandma/Grandpa Stiles. She received all of her other gifts at the big birthday party in August.

Here are some layouts I created for October THAW over at Willow Traders. There are some great challenges over there. We have a lot of fun and get quite a few layouts completed. The "sparklers" layout was created using a Pagemaps sketch.

I have created a message board for my sketch site. It's a place to display your NAS layouts and just to chat. So, if you get a chance, zip over and say, "Hi!"
We don't have a lot going on this weekend, which is nice. I hope to get to scrap with my good friend, Angelina tomorrow night. I always look forward to that.
Thanks for popping over!
