What to say, what to say...I don't really know!
We did get a new pastor last night. That's very exciting!! He was voted in 100% yes!! We have been with out a pastor for about 19 months...so it is pretty awesome to finally have a consistant speaker each Sunday...and MANY other things. Can't wait to get to know him and his family!!
We have a busy week ahead of us. And then Derek is leaving Friday to go on the Youth ski/disciple now trip until Monday. He has NEVER skied before...so that should be interesting. I just hope and pray he doesn't break, tear, sprain, strain, whatever ANYTHING! Really, he will probably have an amazing time. I can't wait.

I did manage to get some scrapping done! I got LOTD (layout of the day) at CMK!
This is the LO I did. I really love this picture! It is one of the few pictures of all four of them together (My PaPa, grandmother, Mom and aunt). My mom is the littlest one. My PaPa, mom, and aunt all passed away from cancer and my grandmother is not in our lives...They seem so happy in this picture and I journaled that is was probably one of the last before my grandmother left them all. I wonder what was going in her mind in this picture. How she could leave this beautiful family....Anywho, here it is...

Here is another I did of me my best girl, Remi! She's so cute!!

And one more of Bryson with Santa...this was his first Christmas.

And here are the last two projects for Triple the Sketch.
A Christmas card...Hey, I'm way ahead...OR just really behind??

And a picture of Corbin with Santa...this was also his first Christmas.

I have more to share...but I will wait until next time.

Well...I guess that is all for now. I need to get to bed soon, so I can get up early and get some stuff done around the house.
Hope you all have a great week!!!!
