It seems to me that the closer we get to cooler weather the more I want to craft and nest, does this happen to you?
Jonah, my youngest, has been on to me for months to make a scrapbook of his first year, this has brought back so many wonderful memories and made me realize just how fast my sons are growing up. This is one of the pages I have done for his book, I still have this little outfit. Hopefully, one day his son will be able to wear it!

Good Times

Tom & I had a wonderful week long vacation without the children, this is the first time we have left them for more than two nights. We spent a few days at the lake, visited the Amish country, shopped our way through Pigeon Forge we stayed at The Inn at Christmas Place it was fabulous!! I can't wait to go back again this winter.

I can't believe that it is only four months until Christmas, YIKES!!! I'm trying shop earlier & wiser this year.

The boy's school starts next Wednesday, they are so excited to see their friends and meet their new teachers. This summer seems to have flown by.

Tomorrow will be one year since I had my thyroid removed, I feel like I have been given my life back!!!

That is the only way that I know how to describe the last two weeks of our lives, UNPREDICTABLE!! Hopefully, these last few weeks before school starts will go a little smoother.

Tom's parents have graciously offered to watch the boys next week, we are dropping them off on Saturday and heading west for the week, we don't have a clue where we are going or how long we'll be gone, this is hard for me because I am a planner by nature. We have been looking at the atlas all week trying to decide where to go, if you have any suggestions for something in the Midwest region leave me a comment.
