Christmas Village


Christmas, well, the whole month of December is going to be very different from years past since the kids are living with us. 

We bought a new dining room table and it's beautiful but huge and there really isn't a lot of room to put the long tables I usually use for the village in there. So this year I opted to use the bakers rack that sits in the dining room as the base. I'm not gonna lie, Paul and I both like it better for the village. I just have to find new homes for things that used to live on there during the holidays, like my Father Christmas ornaments. 

Here is the new setup for the village. There was only 1 item that didn't fit and that was the broken down car in the snow. Maybe I'll find a place for it next near. For now, this is done 😊

I may add more snow especially around the buildings and some trees NEXT YEAR. I'm also not sure I LOVE the Christmas wrapping paper for the background. I've been thinking maybe a white sheet with some light blue snow drifts painted on might be nice. We'll see next year, but like I said, today it is done. Now to finish up more decorating. 

As always..

Thanks for stopping by.

Project Life May 2022


As you can see, I'm still playing catch up with last year but you know what? That's ok! Because I'm printing my photos and getting my stories told for my family and my future self. Doesn't matter if it's last year or 10 years ago. 

As always...

Thanks for stopping by.

May 2023 moments..


Well I managed to get all my photos from May and June uploaded to my computer, my EHD and Dropbox..yay! 

Here's some of our summer so far..

For my birthday this year Bev took me to see the play Tina. I decided to stay overnight since we also had May's Bunco. At the time Bev was staying at Sue's house on the lake and taking care of her dog while she was out of town. She graciously allowed me to stay there too. 

View of Lake Erie from the bedroom I stayed in. 

We met Lisa for lunch at The Tree House 

Ok, not gonna lie. This was my first Mimosa..never again. Not a fan! LOL 

The play was downtown Cleveland at Playhouse Square. Such an awesome place. 

It was an awesome performance! 

Oreo sure is giving Willow lots of exercise!! 

We have a message group in the family called Wordle and 5 of us Wordle each morning and post our results. I did see someone else (I think on FB) also does this, but one person picks a starting word..that sounds fun! Anyway, Jenn got a 1!! 

Elliott helped me with the gnome garden..


The flowers in the garden are absolutely gorgeous! Paul does such a nice job in the yard. Our little oasis..
Unusual tulips

That's it for May..
Thanks for stopping by.

Project Life April 2022

 Hey there!

I'm uploading photos to my computer from May and June so I can post some summer fun memories. We went to the zoo, Cedar Point and playgrounds. Lots of fun in the backyard too. 

In the meantime I'm posting my PL from April last year. Last year was a different format and I used a 6x8" album. 

As always..

April was super busy. With the kids living here, the celebrations were amazing!! 1st we had Easter and then later in the month was Elliott's 4th birthday party. These are reasons to get the photos printed and tell your stories. So we can enjoy them for years and years to come! Click on a photo to enlarge.
