Austin is a true Texan. I guess we picked a good name for him. He is all into the boots, plaid shirts, and guns of course. So this years VBS theme was right up his alley. He insisted on wearing his Cowboy gear everyday even though most of the kids did not dress up.He was even quite upset one morning when the shirt he wanted to wear was dirty. It was quite cute! I used a Sassy Lil Sketch for this LO.

My Snow man

Last years snow fall was a rare event around here. As the weather turns colder the kids are already asking when is it going to snow. Hard to tell them there is a good chance it will not. They had so much fun playing in the snow last year, which is why we decided to vacation in Colorado this year. I had to give a little bit of instruction on how snowmen were constructed since they didn't have a clue how to make those balls. I thought Austin did pretty good for a first timer. He even came up with his own idea for the eyes, pine cones! I use a Creative Scrappers sketch for this LO.

I am the Party

The new Scrap Whispers challenge is "All things bright and beautiful". So I dug out one of my favorite paper lines, Bo Bunny block party. So sad I'm almost out of it. I just may have to buy some more! It worked perfect for this bright color challenge and a picture of Jacob and some of his friends at his last birthday party at the zoo.

All Caged Up

I found these pictures just hilarious. Austin was in love with the shark cage at the aquarium and I had such a hard time trying to be nice in the journaling. Trying not to say things like "I should have locked you in" or "you belong in a cage", LOL. He is my wild child so many times a cage would be quite nice here at the house. This LO was based off a Sketchy Thursday sketch.

Another year

Every school year seems to go by so fast. Which also means every year my son gets older and older. I was a bit scared of 3rd grade for Jacob. I knew he would be dealing with a lot harder material and would be expected to have a lot more responsibility. He informed me at the beginning of the year that he was no longer a little kid and all the things that third graders got to do. At the end of the year he had excelled making the A/B honor roll and getting an award for highest AR points. Now on to Fourth!

I turned a 2 page sketch from Stuck on U Sketches into a one pager.
