More layouts


Today was a very productive day....days like that feel great! Julie came over and we cleaned like crazy and did laundry for several hours before people were suppose to come look at the house, then we dropped pizza, breadsticks and soda off to Kyle and his friends at school for lunch. Today is his 17th birthday. He was so happy! Then we went shopping for his birthday presents, and had lunch together. We had Cole with us because I kept him home an extra day, but he is doing better now. This afternoon I helped Julie with some stuff, then delivered late valentines to my primary kids, baked a cake, picked up Kyle from school at 6:30 (he is taking extra classes to graduate early), had dinner, then worked on these 2 pages for Chad's birthday album. We are going to celebrate Kyle's birthday on Saturday. He wants to go bowling and to dinner as a family. My boys are all growing up so fast. I so wish time would slow down a bit. I want to enjoy them for as long as I can.
I got the sweetest packages full of goodies and beautiful things in the mail from Andi and Sue. They brought the biggest smile to my face and made my day to know that people really care and think about me. Thank you so much dear friends. Love you sweet ladies!
Off to bed...more people are looking at the house first thing in the morning.

My goodness you've been a buisy girl lately! I'm glad you had help with the laundry...lol. I love the package...it made my V-day so much more special, and the little pink fluffy puppy is going straight onto the bed, where I hope it does not get in a fight with the monkey that has been living there!

Love the pages ! I'm sure he'll love them - a piece of home whereever he goes :) (and you can send new pages periodically through the mail for him to add to it of things you and the other boys or Sandy have done while he's been gone)

Andi said...

Love these layouts! The picture of Chad and Sandy both dressed in cammo is so cute. They're such a good looking couple. How do you get the stitching on your pages? Do you actually sew on the paper with a machine?

Sounds like you were really busy but I know it makes me feel good too when I get lots accomplished.

Glad Cole is feeling better. Happy Birthday Kyle!!!

Wendy said...

Hi Jolene!
First, congrats on the fact that you actually have people coming to see your house!! I had my house on the market for 6 months last year and only ONCE (I tell ya!) did anyone come to see it! And we are talking a lake community/two story home! You can't sell what people don't see so I am so thrilled that you are having traffic come through...this is very good karma!! : ) Hope you have a blissful weekend! VB

Amy Mowbray said...

Happy Birthday Kyle! Hope you had a great day.

Jolene, love the pages. Very cool. Chatterbox is the best!

TK Angels said...

Take care,
Terri

I Love, Love, Love your layouts! I can't wait until I can scrap again...I've even been tempted to buy the premade albums at Target I'm so desperate!

Happy Birthday to Kyle!
