The colors in this kit are so "me"!!!
I was thrilled with the quick delivery time, too. The kit actually arrived one day when I was home from work sick. After sleeping most of the day away, the kit on my doorstep was a welcome surprise. I took some time to scrap before the boys got home and then finished up a few more layouts as I had time over the next few days and this weekend.
With this kit, I didn't really look too hard to find photos to match up with it. I just took my last photo order and decided to tell the stories that I wanted to tell now. The first is about Kevin and how he was our tour guide during a stop we made at Lincoln'd Boyhood Home over Spring Break. Since Kevin had toured their in the fall with a field trip, he knew everything there was to know. That kid is a sponge!I mixed up some Cosmo Cricket and Jillibean Soup for this one. LOVE the two alphas in the kit!
The weekend before I received the kit, Kevin had made out invitations for his First Communion. I was able to scrap his invitation with a photo of him working on them. I pulled papers and embellishments to match the invitations and his red shirt in the photo.
I fell in love with that Bazzill bling tree. I'm afraid I'll want to buy more of those now!
I also have another LO completed with this kit (so far!), but it's an 8.5x11 layout for my personal album. I'll post that one later with some others.
Personal Scrapper is having an online crop that started today. I have 15 challenges to keep me inspired. Luckily we are out of school tomorrow. I had planned to take the boys out for a day trip, but have one arguing with me trying to keep us home to just enjoy the day here. We've had a lot of rain lately and I think he's looking forward to a pretty day of just playing basketball in the driveway.
We'll see where we end up tomorrow...

Although we had to make several trips to the eye doctor for minor repairs to Kevin's glasses (and one replacement for the pair that was split in half...boys!), Kevin has been very responsible with his glasses.
We hope Blake will be, too!

We attend a wonderful church and although we are outgrowing our current location (we are landlocked), the parrish is making plans to build and move. The children are all getting involved. They were asked to make 12"x12" art projects that will made into tiles and used in the new school.
I am proud to have two sons who are active in our Church.
Blake is showing maturity by serving at Mass.
Kevin recently helped make an announcement after Mass and also collected money for his class project/charity - Heifer International. (He did a great speaking very loud and clear!)
I am proud to have my niece, Reese, Baptized into our Church.
I am proud to call her my Goddaughter.
She brings such happiness to our lives.
This past Sunday, after months of preparations, Kevin made his First Communion. We were happy to share this special day with both sides of our family.
Both Reese's Baptism and Kevin's First Communion were extra special with Blake serving at both Masses.
I hope you all are feeling just as blessed as me right now. :)

Even though the tournament was over, baseball isn't. We had two games on Monday night and two last Thursday. Kevin's team is 2-0, but Blake's is 0-2. Tonight's games were called for rain.
