Saturday's triumphs

Happy March! So who took all those February days from us?

Some progress in life today! I finally cut and donated my hair to Locks of Love. I'll post photos tomorrow. We also moved our girls' play area from the family room to the upstairs guest room - something I've been mulling over for three months - and we love it. Not done completely, but no longer in concept mode. :)

Amanda blew my socks off with this picture she drew in Microsoft Paint:

The latest up and coming four-year-old designer! Daddy taught her to use the program last May when we were hanging out at an airport waiting for our flight.

My youngest sister Gina will be visiting the end of this month from southern Cal- yay!

Here's a layout of Miss Amanda 1-1/2 years ago. She really loves to read. The other day, she read a whole book to Abigail, Ron and me! She smiled the whole time, because she said she felt "like a big person":

I have had an incredibly difficult time tying loose ends, getting things done lately. I think I'm trying to do too much at once... master of none. Time to regroup. One thing at a time... one step at a time... breathe, and FOCUS.

Some layouts to share:

This scenario takes place throughout the day... too much love for each other. But don't be fooled; the little Crabigail can have her big sis running to Momma in tears via slapping, scratching, pulling hair. It's WWF, powder puff version. Credits here.

A layout using Lisa Habisreutinger's latest kit. I sure do enjoy being on her CT! Her stuff gives me digi happiness. :) The photo is by Fleurish Photography here in Eagle ID. Credits here.

This is my favorite... dedicated to Chole in MT - you are not alone, my friend. (Credits here)

Amanda and Abigail's cousin Brandon is two today. :) Amanda and I had the pleasure of staying with newborn Brandon and his parents for a month, as helpers. Can't believe that was two years ago. Amanda holds very fond memories of that time - she says her favorite vacation destination in the world is Seattle.

Today's post marks 100! Started our humble little blog back in November, not knowing what I was doing, and we still have a long way to go stylistically, but the journey sure has been fun. Thank you for frequenting our household through this venue. We enjoy your company.

To balance out the many Amanda layouts, here is one of our little Abigail:

It's a layout I scrapped for Stacey Sansom's creative team, with her newest line of papers, Victoria.

Here are the credits.

Look how big Abigail is. It's so moving how life chugs forward, little by little.
