Another LO of my daughter and son on our recent visit to Pittsburgh. I completed this LO as part of a challenge listed on the Urban Scrappers with 5-4-3-2-1. Five letters in the title, four hand-written journal sentences, list at least three names, two exclamation or question marks and one date.

This is a LO of pictures taken at this year's state fair. We went on a Friday night and the weather was nice so she was able to have lots of fun. I tried to make a candied apple which is one of the treats she had to have while at the fair.

Our fun weekend is coming to an end in just a few hours as we start our long ride home to Richmond. We've had so much fun, I hope that we can do it again soon. Trips are even nicer when so much fun can be included with a business trip. Esperanza has been beside herself and has alot of show and tell goodies for when she's the student of the week.

This picture was taken while we were waiting for our dinner last night at Outback (my son's treat). Oh the joy and excitement of my daughter as she got to see her big brother. My heart overflows with joy when they get to see each other since he lives in Pittsburgh and we live in Virginia. They were born 17 years apart but they have a special bond and they truely adore each other. He took off all weekend to spoil her rotten so of course there will be more pictures. I am thankful for my children and special moments like these.

Happy Friday, yes indeed I am off work and almost ready for our little weekend getaway. We are headed to Pittsburgh where we'll hang out with Justin for a few days. So much has been happening but everything is being put on hold so that we can make this trip. I've had a busy week so that means not too much crafting being done but in one of my previous weekly post I mentioned my new toy. Yes, its picture above the cricut expression and I finally opened and used it. I won't be taking it with me but I'll have plenty to keep me busy for the drive and while I'm there.

My first Sunday weekly update in a while. So much has been happening so I wanted to just blog about some of it. My family was recently given some bad news about my uncle, my mother's youngest brother. We are coping and relying on our faith as we rally together to move forward as we accept God's will. I am thankful for my immediate and extended family. Yesterday was a very busy day for me as I attended a scrapbooking event along with some of my scrappin' sista friends and we had a blast. We shopped, ate, made cards, worked on albums, completed make & takes, workshops and just had some good wholesome fun! I was able to start an album that I've been needing to do for a few months. I still need to work on my card for National Cardmaking Day! Yesterday was the start of Fall soccer season for our daughter and they had their first victory, go Fisher Tigers!
