Wellllll...
Not much has been going around these parts, so there hasn't been much to blog about.
D went skiing with our church youth group this weekend, and just got back today. He's in one piece and he had fun. A little sore, but he had fun!
I think B is coming down with a little stomach bug...he started acting a little cranky last night and today he's had some...well...issues. Poor guy. I hope he gets better soon.:(

I was bored while D was gone and found a squirrel to try my new camera lens out on. (it was a Christmas present from D)
He had just opened up a pecan from our front yard...














Then I scared him and he ran to the back, across the alley, and I finally found him in someone's back yard...














He ate his nut and then went and got another one...















Then he stopped and posed for me...














And then went on his way again.














All the boys around these parts use the squirrels for target practice...but, I really think they are cute.

Tomorrow morning I'm starting a new Bible study at church...We are doing this Beth Moore study. Can't wait to get started.

Some scrappin'...
Here is a little gift card holder I made for this week's sketch at Triple the Sketch...(it's made from an envelope, folded in half)the last of my Christmas stuff! Thank goodness...

















And a LO from our trip to San Diego...























Ok, that's it.
I think I'm going to bed early tonight.
Hope you had nice holiday today, if you did. Have a great rest of your week!!

Squirrels. I used to think they were cute. Until they ate the wires in my Trailblazer TWICE at the expense of over $1700!! Now I lay in wait for those suckers!!
You must have been really bored!

Cute stuff, Ember! I like the pictures of your squirrel buddy. Not an easy guy to get a photo of. You did a great job. I really need to improve my photography skills.
Your projects are wonderful. Really like the gift card holder. Great idea to fold an envelope in half for one. I am definitely going to remember that. The page is wonderful, too. I always love a grid design. So cool that you included some of the zoo map and tickets on there.
