catching my breath :)

Whew, I think I am finally catching my breath! I started watching baby J last Thursday. So, I have been adjusting to two infants, ages 4 months and 5 months, along with an active and bored 7 year old. Whew is right, heh?? :)

Here they are - they just kept smiling at each other. It was so adorable!! I will have to take a few more pictures tomorrow. :)

But, we are making progress. Today the boys both slept for their big naps at the same time and actually woke up within 15 minutes of each other. It was nice. But, I didn't get to do anything fun in that time. I dusted my living room, cleaned my toilets, unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher, unloaded the dryer and put another load in, etc. I am hoping to get into a routine and be able to maybe scrap for at least 15 minutes during their naps. I think when Bayleigh goes back to school, I will be able to get it done.

Speaking of little miss. She starts the 2nd grade on Monday. We go tomorrow to find out who her teacher is. I am hoping for someone in particular, so we will see. Keeping my fingers crossed. :) We are all ready to get into the school routine for sure.

I haven't gotten much scrapping in because I am an Olympics addict. I swear, I cannot stop watching the games!!! I am begging Andy to plan our vacation in 4 years to London and we can go to the games. How awesome would that be?!?! Ohhhh, we are really going to try to start saving now and make that dream of mine a reality. :)

Here are two pages that I finished up last week. I have another one on my table that is 98% done and I have to add some Stickles and hopefully post it tomorrow.

This one was inspired by my friend, Christy, over at Lifetime Moments. All of these goodies were in the May Lifetime Moments kit and the FAQ stamp from Studio Calico.

This one was inspired by a layout done by April over at Studio Calico. Just took hers and put bigger pictures and added a few things. I really like how this one came out. :)Alright, off to finish watching the gymnastics competition for tonight. These judges are *killing* me!!! Ohhhh man, there is something up with this. I am sure that you will see some articles about it tomorrow morning. Ugh, ridiculous.

Catch up with you tomorrow. Oh and the menu is great!! Ya'll have to try the bacon wrapped meatloaf recipe!! Yummmy!

XO
