Sunday, Sunday

I love Sundays.  There usually isn't a lot to do.  Mike makes breakfast, and we usually just stick around home.  Today I want to check out some more of the sneak peeks for the CHA show starting this week.  I am loving a lot of what I have seen so far.

I couldn't wait for this weekend.  Last one went way too fast. Life at work is gearing up to be busy for the next couple of months. The days are long but they go fast.  Mike is having knee surgery next week, so we have been preparing for that, since he will not be very mobile for at least a few days.

We spent yesterday hanging out at home.  Mike is working on a big project for his radio stations.  And I have been scanning tons of old photos I have borrowed from my mom.  I finally finished the scanning part, now I still have 110+ scans to crop to individual pictures and do some re-touching.  It will be a process, but to have so much of our family history digitized is priceless. It has been fun to revisit some old memories and I can't wait to start capturing those stories in my scrapbooks.

I spent Friday night scrapping.  I found this sketch on the Studio Calico blog, and used it to do the layout below.  I am almost out of the Basic Grey Oliver goodies I bought, good thing I will be getting some more in my Studio Calico August kit add on's. It is perfect for boy stuff.

Nicholas is talking so much now it is amazing what comes out of his mouth sometimes.  The other day, we had guests, the adults were talking and Nicholas put on his Angels cap and looked at his reflection in the fireplace glass, and proceeded to have a full conversation with his reflection.  We all stopped talking to listen in.  When he was done, he said see you later, tipped his cap and walked away.  It was so stinkin' cute.

After going through that with Josh, I have to say that I share in your happiness to hear Nicholas talking!! One of these days you will be amazed that he even had trouble in his earlier years, he'll be talking your head off.

Love your layout using the BG Oliver line! I just picked some of it up and can't wait to use it! You've given me some great inspiration!!

I'll be praying for Mike to have a successful knee surgery and recovery!!

Your layout and take on the sketch are great. When my son started talking we felt the same way - amazed and amused. Enjoy the chatter :)
