Family time

I spend a fair amount of time posting about my sweet girls.  It is so easy to get tied up in everything that they are busy doing that marriage can get put on the back burner.  I know I am not the only one in this position. :) DH and I have starting using their activities to our advantage for the last couple of weeks.  On Wednesday nights both girls go to youth group for an hour and a half.  DH and I have started going together to drop them off and then heading out somewhere for dinner.  Now, it may not be the best for our waistline, eating out every Wednesday but in this case I think it is worth it.  The girls can get pizza at church to it works out beautifully and I am loving this time for us to catch up and spend some 1 on 1 time.  I love the message it is sending to our girls too. The message that our marriage is important to us and that we want to spend time together.

Looking ahead to a very busy and hopefully healthy weekend.  L has her first gymnastics meet of the season. I am excited to see her perform her floor routine.  It is going to be cute.  She chose to do the routine to Walking on Sunshine (such a perfect song for her bubbly personality) and has been working so hard on it.  Her tumbling capabilities just blow me away. On top of a gymnastics meet, we have a soccer game this weekend for K.  This is going to be a tough one.  K and her team are probably in the wrong league.  They have been smoking every team they play.  The last game their coach told them they could only shoot and pass with their left foot for the whole first half to try and challenge them a bit.  So he has set up two scrimmages for this weekend and next against a local team that is really good.  I don't want to see them lose of course, but I think the challenge is going to be good for them.  Please say a little prayer for both my girls though.  They both need to be 100% on top of their game this weekend but they both are coming down with something.  K had a sore throat all day yesterday. This morning L, DH and I have one as well.  :(

Have you signed up for the Crafts N' Things newsletters?  You can get great holiday ideas sent to your inbox every day and then once a week there is a weekly newsletter that comes straight to your email.  These Halloween jars I created are part of the newsletter this week.  They were super easy  and quick to make.  It took no time to create a bunch to give to a few neighbors. Check it out here alone with lots of other great Halloween ideas.

So I have layout to share with you today.  This last week we focused on Carte Bella paper products over at Emma's Paperie.  Here is the layout I created using Beautiful Moments Line.


Hope you have a fabulous weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!!!
