Over the river and throught the woods....

Do you rememember that children's song- over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house we go. Our drive last Saturday felt like that song to me- granted there was no river, woods, horse, or sleigh, but there was a little snow and a LOT of deer-

We do live in a rural area- although a lot of new houses have popped up over the years it sometimes seems 'crowded' to those of us who have been here a little longer- We drove to grandma and grandpa's last Saturday (they live 6 or 7 miles away) and this is what we saw- And there were actually probably twice to three times as many deer as in the second picture - They were spread out in the field and hard to get a good picture of all of them at once.

A few pictures . . . . .

Porter in the St. Patrick's Day Shirt we made
(ok he just watched)

One day in the living room Porter rolled himself under the bear and kept petting it. He had a great time but ended up covered in fur.

One of Porter's favorite toys - and a nice mohawk

Porter and his bud Uncle sc'OTT'

I wanted to add a picture of him and cousin Karson but they didn't turn out very good. We'll have to try to get a better one when we see him tomorrow.

SO Excited!!!

As many of you probably know I have really gotten into digital scrapbooking since the beginning of the year. A few weeks ago I entered my first ever layout contest and I won!!!

I am so excited- Getting into this scrapbooking thing I have kinda felt like a preschool kid that snuck out the Sunday paper, scissors, and gluestick to make some so called "art"- Hoping that no one would laugh at my work. . . .

Here are the two pages I entered. The one with me and Porter is the one that won. I was so surprised because there were a lot of really beautiful pages that were entered you can see them all at: Raspberry Road Forum (there are several pages) The Theme was why are you "LUCKY?" Raspberry Road is one of my favorite Digital Designers and she gives away a lot of great freebies. You can find her stuff HERE.

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

Porter has decided he's mobile now. . . He started rolling over in December- mostly to his tummy and when he got there he would promptly decide that was not where he wanted to be and yelled for help. . . Now he can't hold still. . . As I am typing (or should I say trying to type) he's rolling all over and keeps pinning himself against the furniture and I have to go rescue him.

Of course when we tried to pull out the camera last night to catch him in action he decided he had stage fright. (or more likely a stubborn streak) We did however catch a couple of rolls. P.S. please ignore the goop on his sleeve- He decided that if carrotts were so tasty to eat they'd be just as fun to wear!
