Getting Ready!!

Hello Everyone!

Well, it seems that I have waited until the last minute to do most things (besides packing) for my trip.  It's been sort of a frantic day but I am happy to say that most of it has been completed.  For those other things, well, they will have to wait until I return.  :)

Just wanted to share the cutest Abraham Lincoln from President's Day!
Bet you didn't know that "Abe" was missing his first tooth!!

This next pic is from an annual event for the Young Women in our church called New Beginnings.  What an uplifting night. 

I believe I will have a My Pink Stamper Live Weekly for you tomorrow.  LOL!  I filmed one this morning but not much substance to it.  :)

Wish me luck!  I cannot believe I am leaving my babies for 9 days!!!!  So many tears tonight.  :(

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I just wanted to do a quick post before I retired for the night.  It is after 11:00 pm and I have an early morning with the children.  

Tonight I was getting some of the pictures on my computer organized for the cruise next week and came to a discovery.   I really miss scrapbooking!!  LOL!!  I am sooo excited to have an entire week to spend trying to catch up on a couple of years of memories.  I am so grateful for modern technology and that I can take digital pictures.  It makes scrapbooking for me so much easier.  

Church was good today.  The first hour was really uplifting and I loved all of the talks that the speakers had prepared.  The other two hours were exhausting because I am still feeling a little bit warn out from all my dental work last week, and I was teaching a new song to the children.   I will post it for you guys soon.  It is such a GREAT song and it is called "I Will Follow God's Plan For Me".  Most of the kids knew it from years past so it was mostly a review with a quick little unscrambling game.  

Last night I ended up taking my girls and two of their friends to the Greyson Chance concert here in Edmond, Oklahoma.  Man, do I feel old!  I never thought those words would come out of my mouth (LOL) since I act so young most of the time!  I think the average age (besides the parents) at this concert was 10 or 11.  I am not kidding!!  Greyson did a fabulous job and will have a very successful career.  He is a very talented young man.  The other part of the concert was just loud.  Not sure if my girls are into rock music yet and I am so glad!  

Here's a quick pic of me with my girls last night.  My husband ended up taking our 3 little boys bowling, so all of us ended up having a great night.  




I have sooo much to do before Thursday this week!!  Don't worry, we have much prepared and planned for you guys while I am cruisin'.  I will have some guest helpers, too.  Just wanted to let you all know again how grateful I am for YOU and all you do for me.  Thank you for letting me share a bit of my life with you each day!

Sunday Activities

Happy Sunday Everyone!!


I thought I would share my day so far.  It has turned out to be a great day!  This morning we met earlier than normal at our church due to a Conference that was broadcast to Okahoma, Texas, and New Mexico members of our church.  I took a bunch of notes and came away very uplifted.  Here are some things that I wrote down...

*We all need to reach out to His lost sheep.  Help others know how important, special, and loved they are.  Help those who are lonely know you care.  Forget ourselves and find those who need us more.  

*PROS
P - Pray both morning and night
R - Read scriptures daily
O - Be obedient
S - Smile (I love that one!)

This conference really helped me to remember why I am here.  It is not all about me and the minute I feel that it is then I have some big problems to work out.  We are here on earth to learn to be like Him.  We need to learn patience, meekness, be humble, caring, forgiving, etc.  Soooooo many things that I need to work on daily.  I am so grateful that I do not need to be perfect and the only way I can be perfect is through Him. I also need to remember that I am also here on earth to serve my fellow man.  I need to seek for opportunities daily to help others. We can all do this in our lives.  Can you imagine how great this world would be if we all served each other?  I can only imagine.  Remember that one person CAN make a difference.  

When I got home I really wanted to take a nap because I was exhausted!  My children had different plans for me so I ended up getting out of bed.  I guess I will take a nap another time.  I decided that instead of being grumpy (which I was for about 10 minutes), I would make a scavenger hunt game for the little boys.  They had SOOO much fun and it was a great Sunday activity!  I will have to tuck this away for another day.  It helped them to stay busy for a little while.

I then helped one of my daughters work on her Faith in God program.  When children turn 8 in our church, they are baptized and also get to be involved in the Faith in God program for both boys and girls.  You can click HERE if you would like to read a little about this.  I did not grow up in the LDS faith so I didn't have anything like this in my life.  I really wish I had because it is a wonderful program!


 Early this evening I was able to sit in my Loft with some of my kids and organize some of the pages that I have started, need to do, or power-scrap.  I love working on my Family History, "aka" scrapbooking, on Sunday.  What a great day to remember my sweet family and write down/create layouts just for them.  Hopefully I will get caught up one of these days.  Now that I am kind of running a business, too, I need to remember to carve out time for how it all began, and that was with my personal scrapbooking almost 15 years ago.  

Here is a pile of pre-made scrapbook pages that I have made for my DVDs, videos, and other projects.  All I need to do it pop pictures in there & journal.  The only problem is finding the pictures that go with the pages.  I am a chronological scrapbooker, so I am only in January 2009 right now, and am not ready for all the Spring pages I made.  

All of these pages need to be organized and put in the proper scrapbooks.  I have an ongoing one for my family and each of my 5 children.  So, yes, I am working with 6 books at a time.  Once my children start school they really only have about 6 pages added to their personal books a year, unless there is a special occasion, like a baptism or school play.  

Well, I think this is the most I have written on a post in a LONG time!  LOL!!  It has been a good day.  I want you all to know how grateful I am for YOU!  It truly brightens my day to read all of your sweet comments and feel your support.  I hope you all know that you are in my thoughts and if you ever need anything please send me an e-mail.  I also want you all to know how special you are in the sight of our Father in Heaven and that He loves you.  :)

P.S.  I know this is churchy!  LOL!  I understand we do not all have the same beliefs and we are all very different.  We believe that all men have the right to worship how, where, and what they may.  This is just a better way for you guys to know what makes me tick.  :)

"Talk" to you guys tomorrow!!
