Nice weekend

We had a pretty good weekend. The girls and I spent Saturday scrapping. I only finished the three pages in my last post because I wasn't really feeling too creative. I started this page that night, but I didn' like how it was coming together. Yesterday after church I looked at it with fresh eyes, changed my papers and went a whole new route, and I was really happy with the end piece. I bought these big square frames when we first moved here, so I went ahead and framed this layout and now it hangs in the living room. I painted the mat green, added brown to distress it, and then stamped the corners with a stamp I found at Hobby Lobby.

Here are close ups of the top and bottom to make it easier to see.

Faith got to help Pastor David ring the Sunday bells yesterday.

Jessica and Matt and the rest of the high school youth sang at both services yesterday. I looked up and saw Jessica's profile, and she looked so much like she did when she was little that it choked me up a little.

Yesterday we had a cloud blanket over our part of the Ozarks. This is part of the view when I drive into town. I love how the ponds and lakes steam when it is cool, I love how the mountains and valleys roll together, and I love the fall foliage we are getting. It is just so pretty up here.

The big news of the week is that Beth has FINALLY decided to potty train! I haven't had to change a diaper in four days, and there have only been a couple of accidents. WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO! I have been changing diapers for almost 15 years straight.... I am so happy!!!

Anyway... it is a cool rainy day... the kind where you eat soup and drink hot cocoa, and I am going to snuggle on the couch with Todd and Beth and enjoy it. Hope your day is great!
