Checking in with a photo

Sorry, no freebies today, as I haven't had time to actually scrap. We've been SO busy! But here's an update.

My husband joined us in our new house a week ago Friday -- drove through some crazy snow storms to get here, but he made it safely (if not stressed!). We were all SO happy to have him here.

Our furniture was delivered on Tuesday of this week... in the middle of a rain/hail storm. It was the day of all the tornadoes in TN, AR, MO -- we were far enough removed from it that all we got was heavy rain and a small burst of hail. No damage, no injuries for us. We haven't unpacked it all (or even close), but so far, so good.

This is a picture of my husband and kids taken this afternoon. We had some decent, sunny weather, so we went down to the dock. My daughter is using the stick "to catch a whopper." With no line and no bait, she didn't... :)

I really do hope to get back to scrapping again soon... but things have to calm down a LOT before I'll have a chance. I did design a friend's wedding invitations last week for her, and also did a "spoof" slide (Power Point) for a co-worker for next weeks' team meeting presentation. But I havn't had time for any "me" stuff at all. One of these days.... :)

It was so good to read your post and know that your DH arrived safely. I hope you are adjusting to the new surroundings...sometimes life gets in the way of scrapping...I understand that. Blessings to you and I love the "fishing" photo.

This is an excellent photo. They all look so happy and son looks positively giddy, LOL. Glad things are settling in for you and your family.

Photo is a great, a real keeper. Looks like the kids were so happy to being with Daddy. Glad to hear you are finally settling in. It must have been so stressful living in a vacuum.

So glad to hear that things are at least beginning to settle.

I wanted to thank you for leaving all of your old templates up. I just got PSE and now I can use them! I really appreciate templates with spaces for lots of pictures and they aren't always easy to find.

Great photo and I'm glad the children are settling in somewhat at least.

I hope the ice storm evaded you--unlike me.

Glad hubby is with you finally Sarah! Hope things settle down for you really soon and hubby gets that job he wanted!

Hi, I just found your site and just wanted you to know I downloaded almost every template you have! They are awesome (I did not leave individual comments as I had download windows open like crazy)! Thanks so much and now I'll keep updated with your blog for when you "return". Thanks again :)
