Happy Veterans Day!!!

Veterans Day is a federal holiday to thank and honor all those who have served in the US Armed Forces. On today's post I'd like to honor the most important veterans in my life.

My husband retired from the US Air Force after a 20+ year career.  Here he is at the flag folding ceremony at his retirement in 2003.

My parent's both served in the U.S. Army.  In fact, they met when they were on active duty. Here's my Dad just hanging out on Easter Sunday in 1953.

Although Veterans Day is usually reserved to honor our living veterans,  I am honoring my Mom today as well... She looks so young in this picture, but she was 21 years old.  Those are her actual dog tags and a patch from her uniform on the layout.

Happy Veterans Day to all our veterans!  Thank you for your sacrifice and service to our country.  God bless you.

Are you ready for some football?!!!

Football season has just recently begun, but I thought I'd share a Superbowl layout today.  I'm definitely not a football fan.  My annual football viewing consists of the first 5-10 minutes of the Superbowl and sometimes the half time show. However my 2 Tims are football fans and every year they throw a Superbowl party, just for the 2 of them.  I'm invited of course, but always bail out after the first 10 minutes LOL.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you're a football fan, I hope your team plays well tomorrow.

College Visits

Hi everyone,

Here it is November already.  My last post was Sept 1, I can't believe 2 months have gone by so fast.  I was put in charge of our church's annual Harvest Festival and that's taken a lot of my time and focus for the past 2 months.  We had a great event, lots of people in attendance and everyone had a wonderful time.  Now I have some time (until the next event LOL) to spend blogging.

TJ is a senior this year and he plans to attend college after graduation so we've been doing some college visits lately.  We actually started the process during spring break and visited some more schools during the summer and fall.   He's decided that he wants to attend school in Virginia and we have a wealth of schools in the state to choose from.   Today I'm sharing a layout from our first visits:  Virginia Tech, U VA and VCU. Of these 3 schools, VA Tech is the only one that made his list.

My goal for the next few months is to get all of TJ's school albums (kindergarten thru 12th grade) completed before he graduates on June 12, 2015.   I thought I was completely done with elementary school until I recently found a stack of photos from 4th grade that I hadn't scrapped.   I'll keep you updated on my progress and share some layouts every now and then.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Be blessed.
