You are Beautiful~

in every way... and yes she is!!! This is a layout I did of my neice Aimee. Isnt she gorgeous? I have to say Im sure she doesnt believe in herself much, but is getting better. She has a wonderful and supportive family that loves her more than she knows... and a daughter that adores her. Im so proud of Aimee as she has recently joined the ARMY... and how fitting that I tribute her on Memorial Day. I wish her all the best always in her life. I love you Aimee.. and you are beautiful in so many ways!!! ;)~

Just color me PROUD!!~

Sooo totally proud that my oldest son, Preston, graduated from high school this past Friday night. He has not always had such an easy road, but he did it and with his head held high. Im happy to say that he will be using some of the skills he learned while in Vo-Tech {Building Trades} at his new job working for a small construction company. He is also looking into Taxidermy school and trying to get on with Real Tree, traveling and hunting. I wish him all the success in the world. He deserves the best!!! Great job Preston!!!

A little birdie told me~

Well... Todds sister is moving to LA. Ya the big city.. So this weekend we will be saying goodbye to her as she takes off for a new chapter to her life story... to chase her dream. Im so happy for her, but sad too that she will be so far away. I wish her the best and made this little booklet for her for her going away gift.
I also am participating in our week long crop over at Crazy 8's. {the book was part of the challenge too-to alter a book w/ a birdie featured}... then I did this layout too of Justice. I just dont scrap as many pics of him as I should. So its a new goal for me.

He is a fisherman!~

Yup... my son has become a fishin' fool!!! Last weekend Todd took Hunter and Justice down to Boonville, Missouri to camp with my brother Neal and turkey hunt. Justice got to turkey hunt and although he didnt have a good shot at anything, had a wonderful experience. The next day they all went fishing and caught a few small fish. Todd said that Hunter threw down when they told him it was time to leave the lake. Other than that the kid did real well all weekend ... imagine that.. away from Momma and all. I enjoy the fact that Hunter is going to be a fisherman... He is taking to the country like his brothers, Daddy and Uncles have. He will grow close with Todd in the future while doing their outdoor sporting. I hope that this summer they do more outings.. it means a lot to me to go with them too, but every now and then Momma needs a break and it eases my mind to know that they are actually enjoying the break from me too! ;) Yay Summer!!! Yay Hunter!!!!
