Gator bait!

Normally, I don't post sports related things on my blog. But, I just can't resist. My alma mater - the University of Florida - played and won the National Championship last night! GO GATORS! It's a great day to be a part of Gator Nation. And I am so impressed with Tim Tebow - off the field. If you haven't heard of him yet, go look him up. He is an awesome football player, but more importantly, he is a crusader for Christ. Amazing guy!

Okay, back to regular scheduled program. Just had to get my gloating in there for a minute. :)

It's been a rough week here. Getting back into our routine and getting my house cleaned. Baby J has not liked being back at Mrs. Christie's house either. Makes for some *really* long days when he just wants to be held or sat with all day long. And if it's not one of those two - he screams....and I do mean, scream! I am sure each week will get easier. But, wow - what a week!

Here's a layout I did awhile back with the November addon papers at LRS. Fun Crate Paper line and uber cute pictures of little Bayleigh with her first cousin, Emma.

That little baby is now 4 and her mama had another baby this week. Her water broke on Wednesday and she delivered baby Aaron via c-section. She was only 30 weeks along....but, Aaron is doing pretty well - weighing in at 4 pounds, 1 ounce. If you could keep them in your thoughts, that would be great. They are expecting to keep the baby for at least 3 weeks, but my sister-in-law will be going home this weekend.

I am so glad that it is Friday!! :) I am going to enjoy this weekend so much. Time with the kids and Andy is drilling, so it will be quiet. haha Hey, we all need a break every once in awhile, right?

I guess that's about all the rambling from me today. I will finish with some pictures of my hair transformation....over 9 inches cut off!

Before:
After (excuse the windblown hair - it was really windy and I had to take this one myself):
I am loving it and it's nice to not have babies pulling on it all day! hehe

Until next time...

And I agree about Tim Tebow. I love SC but you gotta root for a guy who is such an amazing example of our Lord! =)

I like the hair cut. I'm in the process of growing mine back out from my super short cut. "In between hair" is no fun!

Love the layout too... you always do fantastic work.
