Hey Daddy

I have cabin fever! It’s really hard to take all three children somewhere without another adult’s help. So other than therapy, we haven’t gone anywhere during the week. I have to have a hand free to hold Jordan’s hand all of the time. If Brandon pulls away from my other hand, and runs off, I can’t drag Jordan with me to chase him. I would tote Brandon on my hip, but he’s getting to heavy to do that. Jordan refuses to be carried on my hip because she is too big for that. Alexis doesn’t pay attention and just walks off. If you add all of this together, going to the park with no help can be a nightmare. Not to mention, if they don’t want to leave I have to carry Brandon with one arm and drag Jordan with the other one while fussing at Lexie to keep up. Sigh.

Needless to say, I was so relieved today when Ronnie suggested taking the kids to the fountains to celebrate Father’s day. I got some sunshine, cute photos of the kids, and time with Ronnie.

I only got one or two decent photos because the camera thief (AKA Jordan) got to my camera the other day and changed all of my settings by pressing random buttons. She’s REALLY lucky she’s cute. There are no photos of Jordan at the fountain today because the only one I have of her has her butt hanging out of her bikini. Typical! There are no photos of Ronnie because he hates it when I take his photo.

He did get rather spoiled today. I made Pioneer Woman’s  cinnamon rolls from scratch. They were SO good. The first batch that I made as a trial run yesterday ended up taking like Krispy Kreme doughnuts according to Ronnie. (He wasn’t complaining!) I added a bit more cinnamon to today’s batch and I thought they came out great. They took a while to make, but they were totally worth it. I also made him a little coupon book from the kids for hugs, kisses, and help out in the yard. I don’t know if he’ll take them up on the “help”. LOL

I’ve been in a bit of a scrappy slump lately too. I think the kids fighting, being stuck inside, and all of the spider drama caused my mojo to take a vacation. I did do a few pages, but nowhere near what I normally do.

Journaling: When Mom comes to sleep over, the kids try to stay up as late as they can. They try to be night owls, but we make them lay down at nine. That doesn't mean they sleep! 4/2010 Jordan, Bubba, + Honey

I used a June PageMaps sketch, and my Scrapbook Deals 4 You June kit featuring Pebbles Tree House papers and embellies.

For a challenge where we had to use a PageMaps sketch, two photos, scrap child like photos, and use the title Forever Young from the current remix of that song.

This is for a challenge. I had to use fussy cutting (birdhouses) and I had to mat my photo on something other than paper. I used burlap. (Thank you Nancy!)

Journaling: We thought Brandon would want to hold the new baby goat, but when we set it in his lap he cried! I felt so bad! Maw Maw's house. 2009

I used my June Scrapbook Deals 4 You kit on this one. (Sensing a theme here?! LOL) It featured Pebbles Tree House papers and embellies. I also used a sketch provided by SBD4U by Lucy Chesna Designs.

This last one is my favorite I’ve done all month because Ronnie and I have so few photos of us together.

Journaling: I wanna roll with him, a hard pair we will be. A little gambling is fun when you're with me! -Gaga Lyrics (Heather & Ronnie's Date 7/2008)

I used a sketch by Julie Bonner on this one. It was done for a challenge. We had to use Lady Gaga lyrics or a song title (I did both.), use three or more photos, and a star shape (upper left corner under the title).

I used the King and Queen card as an embellie to represent us. I even dug out little crown brads. I pulled the colors from the photo, and all of the gold accents are pulled from the name of the casino in the far right photo. Oh, the number 8 card was because at the time we'd been together 8 years. I know the photo of us isn't all that clear, but we hardly ever get to go out on dates! So of course I had to scrap it anyway!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you’re having a wonderful Father’s day weekend.

I wish I would have thought to make cinnamon buns! Cool! I'm sorry your feeling "slumpy" If it makes you feel any better, Terry had to work for Father's Day and I had the kids. Jordan decided to throw a hot wheels car out the top floor window which bounced on the trampoline and slammed Joseph in the face which meant a trip to the ER for stitches! Feel better yet? LOL!!!!

I'll send you a pic!

I love your scrapping! I know how you feel. When summer vacation starts, it's chaos and I barely have tome to go to the bathroom!

Take care chicky! You know where to find me :)

OMG! All the children and no one wants to listen.

I went to an old haunt a couple of weeks ago and everyone was either preggers or with babies... Now the mere thought of going through that (and in todays climate?!?!?) makes me want to run.

Slump? Your slump would be uber-productive in my world! I opened your gallery last night and the WHOLE PAGE was new to me!! LOL I didn't have the time to open and comment on all of them yet. Your layouts the last week or so have been awesome, as usual. :) I hope you feel like your mojo is back soon!!
