Christmas Journal #3 continued!

Here we are on December 5 getting out real tree! We used to go and cut one down, but the drive was too long and we would always walk all the way around the tree farm and come back to the first one anyway.
On the sixth we were supposed to journal about a memory, so I choose the Santa light that was always in the same window when we were growing up. My sister has the original one, this one came from a flee market or a garage sale. It is still the same lamp!
here is the short list of what needs to be done, Laundry!!!!!
And the eighth day was to show you what I see, well the real tree, and my cute bathroom shower curtain with the round snowmen. I will get caught up again in a couple of days. Enjoy. Oh and by the way my book is getting chunky!!!!

Christmas Journal #3!

Well it is that time again, Christmas Journal time that is!!! This is my third year taking the online workshop. The last two years I made the book myself, this year I chose to use an album that was purchased at Pottery Barn two years ago!!! On sale for $6.
The book is really long and thin. I decided to turn it horizontally.
Don't peek at the card!!! As you can see there is a page for each day.
Well, hope everyone is having a nice weekend, we will be getting the real tree tomorrow. YEAH!!!

back to school

Ok so here they go, one to 8th grade, one to 5th grade and even one in kindergarten!!! what a busy morning. Everyone got up and off on time, yeah!!!!

Julia is at the back of the bus this year.

The bus arrived last to the school.

There was no way that James wanted his picture taking mom going into the school so i did the next best thing and took one as he walked toward the door.

Jayne looked so cute this morning and was very happy to go into the classroom.

Here is to a good year!!!!!

South street seaport NYC

hello, finally the five of us were able to actually go somewhere together! No baseball, gymnastics or swimming, YEAH!!!! We went to the South Street seaport, in NYC. so did a lot of other people. there was a yo-yo demonstration happening. James was very interested. the girls not so much.

We even saw the waterfalls under the bridges. the kids were tolerant of their photo happy mother as you can see by their lack luster smiles!!!

Jayne found her favorite thing of the day, Can you guess what that was? Julia just posed all day for photos!!!

My favorite things were the painted clouds the sky was very pretty on Saturday. this picture shows how fat and happy the clouds were.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer. Go Team USA!!!

Traveled to Morrisonville New York...

James was lucky 13, and went with the Cragles to Hershey park early in July. He has been missing from the last few posts so here he is!!

This past weekend the girls and I took a quick trip to upstate New York. The girls and i visited my Grandmother in Saranac Lake New York. The girls had fun playing with the Red Rose Tea Animals.

I have always wanted to stop and take a picture of these old barns on route 3.

The Girls were very willing to pose for me this weekend for some strange reason. It could have been the promise of ice cream or something like that!!!
