Thinking it's been a while. Understatement.

Let's see if I remember how to do this... Life sure has changed since my last blog post. Annie is now in Germany, she's been there since September. It's really cool to see her growing. It's also hard to not be able to just pick up the phone and call her. We get sad and droopy somedays missing her. But she's doing well. I update her blog fairly well, so if you'd like to follow her adventures, you can check it out: www.23epicthings.blogspot.com.  This is a layout I just made about her using the March 2015 Cocoa Daisy kit called Hello Again. She likes to take pictures of cute cars, the love of cute cars runs in our family. My mom loves them too. 

Ethan's now a junior in high school. He just planned out his senior year of classes. Holy cow. I know how this ends, it's not something I'm looking forward to. He's such a fun kid, I really enjoy our after school visiting sessions. He's got a great mind. I made this layout to let him know how much I enjoy picking him up from school every day. It's not cool for him, but he is almost always cheerful about the whole thing. I'll miss it. I erased the pencil on my journaling a little too soon, but it was all stitched down, so I just left it. Grrrrr. 

I have the best husband. This just happened last week. I was busy with my to-do list that was up to here. He gently reminded me that people are more important that papers and computers. I always tell the people I work with that very thing, but sometimes I forget to take my own advice. How blessed I am to have him to remind me. This layout was for the Bonjour add on. I loved that paper from Crate Paper. I just kept cutting it up. :)

And me? I'm loving teaching Seminary. It's been such an amazing opportunity, I am learning so much and feel very loved by my Heavenly Father and Savior. It takes a lot of my free time, I hope someday to figure out how to balance. :)

I did get a chance to get some decorating done for the main floor powder room (that sounds so fancy). I wanted to get it done for some wonderful guests who were coming to town, but didn't quite get it done, as usual... I will post a picture as soon as I have the last two elements: a plant stand and a garbage can. And I have to print off something for some frames.
