We used their sketch to do a layout.... a little bit different for me.... I tried my hardest to follow it but by the end I noticed that I had just kept adding.... I totally couldn't help myself! lol anyway I got it done so that was the main thing! The word is 'Keep" Love that! Miss Karla got to pick it this week!Here is what i did:

We had a little mini photo shoot so that Manda and Cody could capture this sweet time in their lives! I Love this shot of them! They are so happy with their lives and their sweet little Kade!
How cute is he! Love this little guy!
And the reason that I haven't been around much lately.... me and these girls.... Marilyn, Lucie and Kathy and myself..... went to Las Vegas to take a class from Teresa Collins! We had so much fun.... touring around Vegas.... I really loved it, so much fun to be with those girls too! Plus it was a really great event! If you ever get the opportunity to go to one of these events I would highly recommend it! Plus it is so much fun hanging out with your girlfriends for a few days!

"to become different in some particular way, without permanently losing one's self or its former characteristics or essence."

Change is inevitable for all of may be a small thing or might be something really big, but we will all go through lots of changes throughout our lives. Some changes we might not even be ready for but we will have to go through it anyways. Change is good for all of us.... It helps us grow, it helps us become who we are.... it defines us....The biggest change that I have been through lately is the arrival of our grandson! This has been such a good change for me but a big change all the same.... It feels like not so long ago that I was going through the same things as my daughter is now.... plus going from 'mommy' to 'grammy' seemed like a big deal! Make sure you go and check out OLW this time around and get in on the fun!
"Inevitable Change"

Wha a little doll! He is getting so big now and has the sweetest little personality!
Have a great day veryone and make sure you go over to OLW and check it out!

It's that time again! Word up over at OLW!
for this week it was Rondas choice and the word is "LOVE"! Great word! So make sure you go and check it out and play along! This is what I came up with:
Kade is Finally home from the hospital and doing so well! It has been so awesome to have him around! Love having a baby around the house again! He is growing good and has such a sweet little personality!

I am having such a hard time with the whole back to school thing! I like being back into a little bit of a routine but I am missing summer so much already and it isn't even winter yet! yuck! Shalaina started a new school this year.... grade 7.... unreal junior high!
Cole started a new school, High School, now that is hard to believe but it seems he is liking it! I will just keep my fingers crossed!
And Sharla is in grade 12.... weird! I will be down to 2 kids in school next year!
It seems that time stops for no one..... so enjoy every moment of every day to the fullest! We blink and ten years has flown by.... Enjoy everyone and remember to LOVE these days!

Word up at OLW!
here we are again..... 2 weeks in between blogging! I am hoping that as school starts that I will get back in to a routine of updating a little bit more frequently! Life in the last week have been a bit of a blur and reminds me of the uncertainty of life..... Some very good friends of ours lost their daughter last week in car accident.... Brianne was a beautiful girl and will be missed by all that new her.... The word up at OLW this week was very timely.... CHOOSE.... i decided to do "choose wisely" there are so many choices that we all have to make in life and hopefully we choose wisely.... Next week the kids start back to school, Sharla in her last year of high school, COle starting high school and Shalaina starting junior high.... these years are so important for each one of them and I really hope that they make wise choices! Here is what I came up with:
Here are some recent shots of our little Kade... He is such a joy to have in all of our lives... He is still in the Childrens hospital but he is coming along now.... He is finally starting to feed good.... a little bit of a slow process but we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.... It has been a long road for Manda and Cody but they will soon get to take him home.... we are all hoping for just one more month, so heres hoping!

He has such a sweet little personality....
I love this! So precious! That's all for this time everyone but make sure and check out OLW and get playing along if you haven't done so already! Happy Wednesday!

2 WEEKS LATER.....and word up.....
here we are 2 weeks since my last post and there isn't really all that much to blog about....hard to believe that 2 weeks from now the kids will be back at school and life will return to somewhat of a normal routine.... The last two weeks have consisted of being at the hospital everyday..... sometimes twice, taking meals and just trying to help where i can....for now that is life.... Our little Kade is getting bigger everyday and for the last few days has been starting to feed and keep it down.... well most of it anyways! He is probably close to 6 and a half pounds now so he is getting bigger, out of the preemie clothes now! Yayyyyyy! He is precious.... Manda and Cody are coping but it is long days up there, Our excitement yesterday was taking the baby, tubes, IV pole and all and sitting outside the front of the hospital enjoying a coffee! This lasted for about ten minutes until his little machine started beeping off.... oh well it was awesome while it lasted!
Wanted to share my word up for this time round! 'FAITH'

Gi picked this word over at OLW and really it couldn't have come at a better time! perfect.... we have to have FAITH to believe that it will all be fine..... easier said than done some days! The picture on this layout was the first time Manda saw him since he left for the Childrens hospital... so precious....

and this boy turned 15 on August 10th.... WOW where do the years go! Seemed like yesterday....Happy Birthday Cole!

Cole absolutely adores Kade.... My mom mentioned the other day that he looks at him with complete adoration in his eyes! So sweet!

Sweet precious boy! Check out them eyes!

and this girl can't get enough of him either! In fact she is quite ticked if she doesn't get enough 'hold' time!There is no lack of lovin this little guy in our house! This is my life for this week, mke sure you get over and play along at OLW! Have an awesome day everyone!

OLW word up..... and some recent pics of our little boy.....
Wow, hard to believe where the last two weeks went but here we are with our new word up over at OLW!
The word up is "IF" so many different directions that you could go with this! I did lots of journaling that is tucked inside.... I won't go into it to much but it starts off...."if I could go back nd start all over, would I cange anything? NOPE! not a thing! I love my life right now..... Love that I got married so young, Love that I started my family when I was only 19 years old.... that is what I wanted..... there is more but I won't bore you all with the details! lol Go over and check out what the other girls did with this word, all amazing!

Here are some recent pictures too of Kade.... He is such a precious little boy and we all can't geet enough of him! So nice to have a little baby around again to hug and cuddle.... he is a doll! He is coming along really good although he is a bit of a rapid breather so until they find out what is causing that he won't be feeding.... as soon as he starts feeding I know he will just do so well, until then though we are just hoping that his breathing slows down.... otherwise he is growing good and getting brighter everyday. He is up to about 5 lbs now so gaining everyday! Enjoy your day everyone and make sure you go over to OLW and participate! So much fun!

Happy Monday everyone!
Ok so I know it is 12:30 in the morning but you gotta do what you gotta There is only so much time in a day and I am running out of time really fast these days....just wanted to give everyone a little update on Kade.... He is still about 4 lbs 6 ozs.... so not exactly sure what his birth weight really was but he is growing! Yayyyy! and you can tell by the pic that he is just so cute! He is doing really well..... his cry is getting stronger everyday! He knows who mommy is and as soon as she bundles him up and snuggles he is fast asleep again! They re going to start feeding him tomorrow so hope everything goes good with that.... it is one day at a time.... and as long as he eats good and grows and shows us that all his little body parts are funtioning properly he should be home within a month! We will just cross our fingers!
Have a great Monday everyone and hope you have all been over to OLW and are playing along! Don't forget to check back wednesday for the new technique!
