Long time no post!

How many times have you heard that one before? Volleyball season started last week for me, but with the kids returning to school this week, it's been a lot more hectic lately. I wake my girls up from their naps to beat the carpool line rush, then lead practice. Once it's done I rush home to get supper on the table, the girls bathed and in bed, then I end up crashing on the couch. BUT I've also stayed up too late watching the Olympics! They're just too addicting and they only come around every couple of years, so they're a MUST watch for me! So I can't blame it ALL on volleyball I guess. If I'd go to bed at a decent hour I'm sure I wouldn't be so tired! Gee, you think? Duh.

Anyway, that's really all that we're up to right now. Caroline wants to play "bolleyball wit da big girls." But of course I won't let her. She just gets in the way--literally. She's almost been hit by the ball a coule of times, and Sarah Kate HAS been hit. So there ya go. No more "bolleyball wit da big girls."

On a scrappy note, Simply Obsessed had their birthday crop this weekend! Here's what I got accomplished, and I'm still working on one more!

"Sparkle"


"Star Spangled Girls"


I was finding that I had a lot of pictures that I've taken over the summer that weren't necessarily LO worthy. So I combine a handful of them in this mini. It's made completely out of envelopes. I'll make tags and journal on them and slip them inside the envelopes that correspond with each picture...I'm really happy with the way it turned out, and completely addicted to making them! I'm sure you'll see more of these from me! :D

Envelope mini-album "This summer we..."


Here are a few of its pages. There's 10 pages in all, so this is just a sampling.








And I also did this one for fun with a lot of Fancy Pants!
"Celebrate!"
