Another birthday!

My second son turned 13 yesterday -- now I have 2 teenagers! Timothy is my one child that I think is most like me. We get along great and I generally know how he is feeling and what he is thinking. He is very thoughtful, helpful and giving. He can also be stubborn at times :-) Timothy would most likely be described by those who know him as a "sweetheart".

Here are a few photos of Timothy through the years. Enjoy!

Timothy doesn't yet know what he wants to be when he "grows up", but he is in Air Cadets (his second year) and is really enjoying it. He is very disciplined.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Timothy!! We LOVE you!

Recent layouts...

Had some fun this weekend at Scrapbook Heaven -- a fantastic online crop! Winners will be announced sometime today. We flooded the gallery with tons of wonderful layouts!! Here are some of my recent projects:

My youngest son at the insectarium. He was a bit nervous about the Walking Stick!

My second oldest son -- he really is a charmer and knows how to make you feel loved and feel special!

Done for our Sisterhood challenge this week. Took inspiration from a magazine ad. Photos are of my oldest son -- way back when he was the only child. LOL!

My oldest son 3 years ago on his birthday. He looks so young here!

Yes! That is one BIG butterfly! My daughter had a GRAND time at the insectarium!

Thanks for looking!

Scrappy news......

Our Sisterhood blog is now getting sponsors for prizes. It's the next logical step in our journey and we are very excited to be able to offer prizes to our participants.

Our first sponsor is fresh pages co., located in Kamloops, BC, Canada. They have a variety of monthly kits and you can even send in your ideas for a kit. How neat is that?! Anyway, check them out, and check out the Sisterhood challenge layouts for the month of November. We are each using a different kit from fresh pages for our layouts.

Fresh pages co. is offering a full kit to one lucky winner. Anyone who does a challenge throughout the month of November, will have their name put in the drawing. Can't win if you don't play! LOL!

Benjamin's cake

Benjamin designed his own cake :-) He has this "thing" about having a theme cake each year, and... he remembers each year and what kind of cake he had :-)

Make a wish!

One of his favorite gifts -- Webkinz Seal.

He loves Geronimo Stilton books -- had this one finished in an afternoon.

Benjamin is 10!

My baby turned 10 years old yesterday. He is such a happy kid -- always wanting to be silly and to make us laugh. He likes things to be the same and is not one for changing routines. Benjamin loves to read and is very quick with his math work. He loves Jesus and loves to pray for others.

Here are some photos of him through the years:

Happy Birthday, sweetheart!!

Next week at Sisterhood of Scrap....

......we're playing Texas Hold 'Em! Check it out, for a chance to win a super prize!

Recent layouts....

This one is for our challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap -- use at least 10 pieces of chipboard. This was a bit of a challenge for me as I don't usually use that much chipboard! I did manage to fit 12 pieces though! Begged a few pieces from my big sis :-)

My youngest sister and my daughter.

I used a page kit for this layout. Sorry -- I don't know who made the kit.
