I'm also thrilled because the kids wanted me to come back again outside of ROE to hang out with them before school's over and I can't wait!
My SIL Shawna is a fabulously talented cake-maker/decorator and did up this completely adorable and oh-so-Jacob train cake. You can visit her website here.

Lining the kidlets up for a cousin shot. These of three of about 20 I snapped trying to get one good one.....and of course an ever growing family picture down at the bottom.
This is what I am MOST excited about! A good friend of mine and myself have been collecting scrapbooking supplies together (to bring down cost) and got together a couple week ago and had our very first night. All I managed to get done in two hours was the picture window (in the top left corner0. Sad, I know. But then last night we got together again I managed to complete two pages that I fell in love with all over again when I looked at them this morning.
I was also getting a little frustrated with trying to transport all the paper and stamps and stickers and pictures and since there is no room in our budget for anything but food buying an organizer was out of the question. I vaguely remember having a laptop bag some time ago so I raided my spare room closet and found it and it fits all of my stuff perfectly!

This little gaffer turns 11-months-old today!
So, you ask, what new things is Denay up to? She is......
- getting very comfortable free-standing and can walk while holding just one hand but hasn't really taken that first step
- she's started mimicking and will clap
- she waves "hi" and "bye" and points
- she is doing all sorts of new things with the mouth and tongue
- she has such an incredibly feisty, bubbly, center-of-attention personality (wonder where she gets that from) and is constantly drawing strangers to her
- she started "dancing" a little while ago but now she really responds to music and enjoys moving to it
- she loves the water and we make two or three trips to the lake a week and she walks right in
I know this is so cliche but I am truly astonished how quickly the (almost) year has flown by and that I will be putting on a one year birthday party for my little baby in just one short month. It has been such a delight walking this crazy journey with such a beautiful and radiant little gal.
Certainly hope ya'll have had a good week thus far.......all you creative types, send artsy thoughts my way as tomorrow night I'm taking the first plunge into scrapbooking. I will try and update my progress but we are heading east on a boat on Friday so it will probably be next week!

Completely random photo of a blue cornflower I took at church last night. If you've never smelt one of these, do it......it's a beautiful scent.
And finally, the news I should have posted last night. I've been wanting the "monroe" piercing for a while and so when I finally donated blood last week I wasted no time getting ahold of my piercer and getting in as soon as possible.....so yesterday afternoon I was pierced for the 20th time.
