Bronchitis Blues

Well I'm sitting here in bed on my laptop getting ready to watch a marathon of Pride and Prejudice! Why? Because for the last week and a half I have been struggling with a cold and flu and everyday it seems to get worse. These last four days I have spent most of my time in bed feeling miserable. I finally went to the doctors today to see if it was anything serious and he thinks I have bronchitis, so he gave me some antibiotics. Sure hope they help because I am tired of being sick. I've missed two weeks of church, missed Young Women's conference and have been struggling with everything else especially because it has been spring break and we have Tim, Danielle and Everett with us and Darci and Ryan stopped in overnight a couple of times. I have read all my books and scrapped a bunch of pages and now I'm just going to do the movie thing for awhile.

We heard from Melodie today and it was wonderful.  I was worried about what she would think about Vanessa moving her marriage date up and she seems okay with it. She is so happy on her mission, really working hard with all her investigators and had 2 baptisms last week. It will be so wonderful to see her again!

We have Everett tonight, hope that goes well since Tim and Danielle booked a hotel and are gone for the night! It has been a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad week!

Well as you can see I have been scrapbooking the last few days, nothing like a deadline to get you working. I wanted to get some pages done for Everett's album and what better time than his birthday!

Tim, Danielle and Everett are visiting us from Calgary. They stopped by on Wednesday, went to Vancouver to visit with his family, go to the temple and then came back last night to stay with us for a few days. Everett has changed so much in the last year as so many of these pictures show. He is almost walking now and is started to have real personlity.
 My scrapbooking style has changed over the years. As I look at the pages I am making, I am discovering that I still like to use several pictures but I like my pages with a lot of white on them. I am also using templates a lot because they make it so much easier. Here I have used Songbird Avenue Port O Prince templates and I used elements from Crystal Wilkerson's "Me and My Baby Brother Elements" and "Oh Boy! Planes, Cars and Trucks Elements and the cute little banner is from Jessica Sprague Up and Running Class 2 Lesson 4. I am trying to be more organized in my scrapbooking and have learned to take notes about the pages I make but need to be consistent about it.
 I loved this page and had fun making it! This was a template from Jessica Sprague's Photoshop Friday #8 and I had fun learning how to use gradients in pictures to add journaling. I loved this picture of Tim reading to Everett, but then reading is always one of my first loves. The paper and elements were from Sweet Shoppe Designs Kristen Cronin-Barrow:  I love cocoa.
 I actually used this template over again from one I did of Mitchell's 10th birthday. Made it so easy and fun and it worked great for writing about Everett's bath time. I was happy to find these bubbles which I thought made the page. They are from the K Winiecki "Neverending" collection.

Bananas and Blogs

 Couldn't resist adding this BANANA!! Rebecca had her friends Miranda and Riley over and we found this banana in our fruit bowl. Totally made me laugh! Posted it on facebook telling her mother Patty that maybe Miranda is just a little too comfortable at our house!
 Here's our cute Rebecca! They had a blast tye dying their shirts yesterday and then of course they took pictures and used them for their new profile pics! The kids today are so computer savvy, kind of scary to think of what will come!
Here's Miranda and Rebecca having fun! I need to blog more! Cathy Zielske is such an inspiration to me, she writes every day and it is funny and interesting. Maybe part of my problem is that I don't really care for my blog and how it back to the drawing board to see if I can get it looking good so that I will feel like getting to it more!
