Today is a rainy day for us here in sunny Florida. I am taking advantage of the rain and just hanging around the house and doing some much needed scrapbooking and some cards. I will post some a little later tonight. My 3 boys that live at home are either working or out with friends so I have some me time. My older son is out on deployment on the USS George Washington in the Pacific and I just sent some photos of his journey to Walgreens......So excited to add them to his Navy book. I am fortunate because there is a photographer (sailor) that takes pictures while they are out on the ship and then they post them on FB. I got to see my sailor in a photo...yay for me. There is 5500 sailors on board.

Happy 4th!!
I'M BACK!!!!!

I am so sorry that I have not Blogged in months. I had gone to visit my son in Great Lakes for 3 weeks and I had so much fun with him. I came home and got so busy with life and kids that I abandoned my Blog. My son is now in Yokosuka Japan, stationed on the USS George Washington. He is on a cruise right now some where in the Pacific.
Well I am here now to retake my Blog over and I will have many posts to come along. I just got the Cricut Imagine for my Birthday from my husband and sailor. I am so excited to get back up and have fun. I would also like to start making videos, we shall see.

I am going to be away for the next few weeks visiting him in Illinois before he leaves. I will not be able to scrap or make cards but I sure am going to have a ton to do when I come back because I plan on taking pictures everyday of us. See you guys in March.

This was a Christmas card I made.
Wow a lot has happened since I was on here last. My oldest son Michael joined the United States Navy and will be stationed in Japan as of April 1st, 2011. Been busy with the family and trying to get my 17 year old son Nicholas ready for college, he will be a senior in HS next year so he has to start looking. Andrew my 15 year old may be joining the Navy as well when he turns 17. Alexander my 13 year old is going through the teen attitude phase......hahaha
The holidays were great, we got to spend some much needed time with Mike and we are looking forward to going to see him at the end of the month for his 19th birthday, as he will be leaving February 1st to Great Lakes, Illinois.
