JUGS--Just Us Girls Scrapping

I have officially joined the ranks of Scrapbookers!!!

Thanks to my friend Sharon Powell, I am now deep in paper, albums, stamps, ribbons, pictures, etc. She got me started with an album for Eli and his first year (of course I had to do most of the work).

Now I have experienced the Scrapping weekend. There were 4 of us, Sharon, Beverly, Sharon and Sharon (in that order left to right). No that's not a typo...S. Hutchens, Beverly Gilmore, S. Powell and myself. We had a great time in a condo in Cookeville. Just the perfect place to scrap until our hearts content. No clean-up or bedtime!

I had a great time and these gals really taught me a lot about scrapping.
I hope this is just the first of an annual JUGS weekend.

Playing catch-up

I'm finding it a little difficult to keep up with all the activities I have been involved with lately. So here is an official appology to all those I have criticized about not updating their blogs....SORRY!
Anyway, the month of Febuary has been very busy. Just before valentines day, Ron and I went to the Georgia Aquarium with Eli, Josh and Nikki. As you can see, the fish weren't as interesting as Eli, but we all enjoyed our visit.

Our friends the Powells invited us to join them in a FREE weekend stay in Pigeon Forge. Of course we said yes. Lots of shopping, eating and just sitting around enjoying Margaritas!!. This was our group shot as we departed the condo. Thanks Sharon and Scotty for showing us such a wonderful time!

Nikki and Eli came home for a short weekend due to the death of Lyndsey Mullins' mother. Lyndsey is Nikki's best friend from high school. We visited Lyndsey and her children on Saturday and Eli really had a good time.

And last but not least, we ended the month with a visit to North Carolina. Scott and Becky Puckett, Josh's parents, invited the whole family to spend a weekend with them (boy were they brave). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Their home is beautiful and Christy and I even got to do some great shopping. Here are just a few pics.
