I have uploaded these pictures to Facebook and here on my blog but I haven't shown you the layouts I created with them.  They uploaded out of order so I apologize for the randomness!  ENJOY!

Ty riding his tricycle in his undies!  He was SO proud of himself.

Here are some pictures from the cabin and hot tub in Bryson City.
 I made breakfast casserole on Sat. morning and had to get pics of everyone!
 This is from Thanksgiving Break.  Ty and I took Grammy Marsha downtown for a morning while Brooke was at Art Camp!
 Here are pictures from our boat trip with the family.  It was SO beautiful and we found a ton of HUGE seashells and sand dollars.
 This is from Thanksgiving break with Grammy Marsha.  We always make my Grandma's cookies!
 These are family pictures from Thanksgiving Day!
 I had all intentions on using one of these pictures for our Christmas cards but the kids were not cooperating.  It was still a fun time!
 We had family Christmas early this year. 
 We decided to start a tradition of making a gingerbread structure.  Ty picked out the train.
 This is from Halloween and Ty was the cutest giraffe.
 They love their Grammy Marsha!
 Another Halloween layout with the Beck boys!
 Still true Michigan fans even though they lost : (
 We were so proud of Brooke and everything she has learned from gymnastics.
 Another fall layout!
 My mom loved seeing Rocco and spending time at the farm.  Brooke took a lesson to show her how well she is doing .
 This is our pre-Polar Express layout. 
 The kids looked so cute in their pajamas!  We are ready to head out to the Polar Express!
 There was a bear head blanket at the cabin so everyone took turns being a scary bear!
 My sweeties!
 On the Polar Express!
 Thanksgiving dinner at the Becks.
 We always trim the tree when Grammy Marsha is here.
I am still busy working on more layouts from Bryson City and Christmas.  I also have all of Ty's football pictures to scrap.  I just scrapped one football picture for Valerie at gotsketch so be on the lookout!!

Happy New Year!

Wow it's been a long time since my last post!  November and December seem to be crazy and full of fun events. 

First, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my mom.  I love when she comes to visit.  The kids love it to.  In Brooke's words, "Grammy spoils us rotten!"  I have to agree!

Grammy loves making Christmas Cookies with her loves!

Thanksgiving Day!

December was another wonderful month

Grammy Bonnie and Brooke went to Madeline's Christmas at the Dock Street Theater! 

We went on a long weekend trip to Bryson City, NC, to ride the Polar Express.  We stayed in an amazing cabin in the mountains.  The Becks and Roses joined us!

Here we all are taking a hike through the mountains.

Here it the Polar Express train.  The kids had a BLAST!

The waiters danced through the train car delivering cookies and hot chocolate.

We also were able to watch Brooke show off everything she has learned in gymnastics since October.   She did such a wonderful job!  We were all so proud of her.

Christmas Day was also wonderful!  The kids enjoyed opening their presents.  Daddy and Ty spent the morning building his legos while Brooke played with her crafts and new American Girl doll!

You just can't help but love these two!

Which brings us to January.  Ty has started playing flag football on a 3-5 yr old league.  He is playing with the Beck boys.  They are SO adorable to watch.  Ty isn't too fond of anyone taking his flags though but he did manage to run the ball down the field for a touchdown.

Most days Ty and Brooke will mention that they wish Christmas would come back.  I remind them that it will but we need to think about all the other fun things we have coming up this winter and spring.  Brooke will continue gymnastics and hopefully play t-ball this spring.  Ty plays football through February.  Then Grammy Marsha will be back down for Easter!!

I have also been helping a friend promote her AWESOME scrapbooking business!  She has some amazing cropping events scheduled and two unbelievable cruises as well.  You can view her website at  You can also LIKE her page on Facebook.  She is announcing something NEW tomorrow!
