WARNING!!! There is a "before" picture of Blake's cut ear below. So, if you'll pass out by viewing it, I advise you to go no further. There is also an "after" picture of his ear and how beautiful it looks now. Blake fell on a toy tank on New Year's Eve Eve. He wants a scar. He couldn't wait for kids to ask him what happened. I have to say, he was quite the trooper! So very proud of my little patient.

See these delightfully delicious photos? Yes, that's what I spend every 2-3 days baking. We love our bread.

Again, baked goodies. You know...what I especially don't need :)

Sledding at Grandma Lahr's.

My darling sister and me at the Bargewell Family Reunion 2008 :)

If you want to see this one a little closer just double click on it.

There isn't much else going on here besides trudging through this nasty white stuff, a.k.a. snow! I'm ready for spring! Who's with me?

If you're a scrapper and looking for some great challenges to reduce your stash, by all means drop over at The Scrapping Spot to get your challenges and get started! There may a prize or two involved. Oh, you don't have "enough" stash to create anything? That is a shame! You're in luck...The Scrapping Spot can help you there as well :) Their store is filled with all kinds of goodies ready, willing and able to be shipped to your location as soon Jill can package it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Well, we're almost one full week into 2010 and it's already going too fast. My schedule is filling up and Charlie already has plans for October.

This layout is regarding Nick's first encounter with the newly purchased go-kart. Um...who thinks letting an 8 year old drive a FAST go-kart is a good idea, raise your hand... Needless to say, it's amazing he survived and refused to drive again after this.

The kids are growing too fast as well. I keep having to purchase new jeans for these kids. Blake's only growing taller, because he's just a spit of a thing. Kaila is catching up to him. Let me tell you, it's not going to take much!

I have a lot to look forward to this month. First of all, volleyball starts back up tomorrow - wahooooo! I miss volleyball when I don't have it. It's been 20 days since our last match. Sheesh! I wonder what my body's going to tell me Friday morning.

I have a fabulous SCRAPDAY planned on the 16th, which I am itching for, my nieces' birthday party, my 36th birthday and that just takes us slightly past the middle of the month. Who knows what else is in store?!!

Awwww! Look at these lovelies. The Lahr children with their Grandma and Grandpa Stiles. How cute are they?

We always need to catch these heritage shots of Grandma Alexander.
That's right, People! Just do what I tell you and this will all be over soon :)

Here's to an awesome year of great memories and even more fantastic photos to remember them...

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! I know...a little late!

We had a fabulous Christmas and New Year! How on earth could we possibly complain. We are seriously blessed.

These are the Lahr Great-Grandchildren. How precious. They are seldom together, so we took advantage of this rarety.

Who are these delightful people? That would be our little family PLUS Grandma Lahr :)

These are the Stiles Grandchildren. It's been 3-4 years since the last time they've been all together.
