I heart Brian Andreas Story People

So many of them speak to me like this one that came to my inbox this morning.

Dark Garden

I once had a garden filled with flowers that grew only on dark thoughts but they need constant attention & one day I decided I had better things to do.

See more of them here.

Pregnant women are beautiful

especially when she is my own baby girl....

I've been eyeing this pink wall at Miguelito's Mexican Restaurant ever since I found out Karen was pregnant hoping it would be a girl so I can take a picture of a pregnant belly in front of it. There is a blue wall on the other side of the building.

My Mind's Eye

Got lots of really fun My Mind's Eye products in my design team kit from Memorable Seasons this month. There isn't a piece of paper in the whole kit that I did not like. Here is some stuff I made.

I have not been as good a blogger as I used to be. You would think that having the children grown would make life less hectic and I'd have more leisure time. It seems that I am always busy. So, how is everyone? Well, I'll tell you.

Allison has begun teaching school at Colleyville Heritage High School. She teaches physics, a geology/meterology/oceanography class and a TAKS class for kids who didn't pass their science portion the first time. She is tired and busy but enjoying the kids and the work. She likes attending their sport events and making herself part of the campus life.

Karen lost her job back in January and has not found another job but enjoyed staying home with Seth all summer. She and Joe are about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary this month and are expecting a little girl in December. Stella Grace is due December 10 but she is already over 4 lbs and the doctor has said he will not let her get as big as Seth did who weighed in at 10 lbs when he was born. Maybe we will have a November baby, instead. They are also house hunting.

Seth has started kindergarten. He is doing well and gets a sticker at the end of each day just about as often as he doesn't so I think that averages out to an average kid, don't you think? He is riding his bike without training wheels, is sounding out simple words and has lost two teeth in the last week. He is also playing fall tball and looking forward to meeting his baby sister.

Curtis and I are doing fine. We are just working and enjoying the kids.
