I got just got back from 3 days of scrapbooking bliss. My sister and I left the kidlets (except Lily - she's still nursing) with our husbands and met at my mom's house for a wonderfully productive weekend of scrapbooking. We try to do this twice a year. I seem to stay caught up if I can manage to go to two scrapbook camps each year. The thing I look forward to the most isn't the scrapbooking necessarily, but uninterrupted conversation with my sister and mom. These are rare moments indeed. We usually have 8 children (between us) who are needing our attention. We can leave all of our scrapbooking stuff out the whole three days. I snapped this picture of Lily Pie. She was an absolute darling and did so well. This used to be Hailey's outfit. I found it at a second hand store. So glad to see it again on Lily.Stacie was able to get a lot done even with her "baby handicap". Her pile is on the left. Mine is on the right. I did 80 pages (minus journaling - always like to do that later on my computer at home), but by golly, I got through my picture pile. It is always overwhelming when I first start. I promised myself I wouldn't get overwhelmed this time and just take it one page at time. With this attitude, I managed to get all my pictures scrapped by the end of the weekend. Josiah wanted to take a family picture when I got home last night. Can you tell I was absolutely exhausted? Poor Michael. Hailey got sick this weekend, so he had to deal with a sicky. She's feeling much better now, but still hasn't got much of a voice. He did a great job of taking care of her. The kids kind of hurt my feelings though because they all gave me a casual "hi Mom" when I walked in the door. Michael can be gone for 9 hours and they freak when he shows up. I'm gone for 3 days and they could care less. I just want to say, "Hello, I gave birth to you people!" LOL! Oh well, they must have had fun with their dad, so that is a good thing. Hope you all had an awesome weekend. I look forward to catching up with your blogs some time this week.
