More of Sam's Happy Day!

Sam has been going through a lot lately, so this happy day was just awesome for us. His favorite part of our trip to the beautiful Fort Worth Botanical Gardens was the huge pecan tree that was here when Fort Worth was founded. The roots are huge and gnarley! The best part for Sam was that the tree had hallow portions that were big enough for even me to go inside. He didn't understand why I didn't think that it was a great idea to go hang out with the possible wild beasties and other assorted creepy crawlies! He loves these pictures and wants to go back to see the tree!
On another note, a very special little gal, Belle Wiseman, has been going through so rough times too. I'll let her explain them to you. Please visit Kirsty's Site . I have been following Belle's challenges in life for quite a while. She has such an awesome attitude and zest for life. I feel like she truly deserves a chance for a better quality of life. Her mom and dad are fighting so hard for her. If you can help out, I know they would appreciate it!

Sam's Happy Day

LOL! I am so ditzy lately. I thought that Sam had an appointment today, so I took of work and got a sub. Then I realized late last night the appointment was for Wednesday. Well it was too late to cancel the sub, so Sam and I had a happy day.

We ate at his favorite restraunt for breakfast- Mimi's. Then we played at the Botanic Gardens and we had a great photo shoot. Sam is just awesome at setting up his own shots. He cracks me up. Then we fed the ducks and played on the play ground at Foster's Park. Next was a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and Michaels for a model airplane and on to pick up his brothers.

It was such a fun time. I wish I could have more days like this.

What Fun!

This weekend was jusst what the doctor ordered. I spent the weekend scrappin' and croppin' with some of my favorite people. I feel revitalized!

It started on Friday after work. Stacie and I picked up our friend Sharon from Oklahoma at the airport. We scrapped until late at night and crashed at Stacie's.

Then we went to a FANTASTIC 10am-12pm crop at my favorite scrapbook store THE CRAFTY SCRAPPER in Waxahachie, Texas. We had the most fun! Visiting with all the gals there is always awesome. Carolyn, the owner always has the best and newest. Since I am a total Maya Roads "Roadie" this is my favorite destination. Get this....the store is Wi-Fi so I was able to get Carolyn hooked up and she created her first Digi Page. It was just too fun!

But the fun didn't stop there. On Sunday, we all went to the airport to pick up another friend from Kerrville at the airport and the fun continued! We cropped Sunday night. Then went back to The Crafty Scrapper again so Sara could shop.

Look at what I made!

I have several more LOs and activities that I started! I think that my favorite is the circle tap layout.

Cody in the Window

I was so excited when I went to Waxahachie on Saturday. Cody was displayed in MarieQ's window on the square. I hope that everyone will stop by and see it. He was really excited when I told him. He wants to take a trip to see it. I just can tell you how happy I was with his portraits Marie did an awesome job. I hope you will go to her blog or her web site and see the awesome portraits that she has done. I can't wait to take all of my boys there for a family photo session. I'm thinking blue bonnet time would be great!
