The Scrap room and Paint room!

Well I won't call it done, as it is not as neat as I wanted, but at least untill after Christmas when I will have more time to fool around with it and set up a few more shelves, it is done and I can now scrap and Paint!

I am so excited to be able to go down and start! I hope to start my classes after Christmas, so I will need to get it neater right after Christmas but with all the company and pressure to decorate and the desire to do some auctual painting and scrapping, I got to the point where I was just saying well enough!

I still have some boxes in the barn to unpack yet also and I am missing some drawers to one of my stands, so stuff is just sitting on the shelf instead of in the drawers. THe tall Paint cabinet has some stuff piled on it that are projects I want to get done for Christmas. By the way that paint cabinet has well over 600 acrylic paints in just the bottom half of it.

4 days of having all 3 grandsons here!

It was truly great to have all 3 boys here! The house was full of laughter and running! Yes there was a little bit of fighting too and many many times of "STAY OFF THE STAIRS!" but it was great.

I can't believe it is over already! My son and his wife and Britton will leave early tomorrow morning for S.C.

I can't help feeling sad, it went so fast. Thankfully my dil took alot of photos as I was so busy that I did not get many! This is one that I auctually did take though!
This next week I am going to do a lot of scrapbooking!

Missing Jason and Noah

Jason and Noah came to visit overnight while I was gone! Since we rarely get to see them and not sure each time when we will get to see them again, the time in between is very tough! When the boys come to see us the talk alot about missing us and Jay Jay talks about how he wishes Mommy would let him visit more. It breaks my heart but I just hug him and tell him I love him! Someday he will understand. Noah is to young to understand much except wanting to be held the whole time he visits. We love them so much and pray that God will take care of the situation so that we have more visitation somehow. God is Good and we know that He will see things through.

I pray daily for the boys and yes even for their mother. So here are some of the photos my daughter took while I was away!
