It really has been a while since I've posted anything, and that's purely due to the fact that we haven't been DOING much lately.  Just day-to-day stuff!  

I'm happy to report that I am more than 50% of the way through the Old Testament!  Reading the entire Bible is part of my new year's resolutions.  I was really enjoying it until I got to 1 Chronicles and all that "begat"-ing.  You know, so-and-so begat so-and-so, etc. etc.  But now I'm through to Ezra and can't wait to keep going.  It's really been a lot more enjoyable than I had expected the OT to be!

Last night we took the dogs to the Plano Dog Park for the first time.  We were a little nervous because they tend to bark (A LOT) at other dogs, people, or whatever they see when they are out and about.  But they did great!  After the initial barking spree, they really had a good time.  Bentley especially because as soon as he was let off his leash, he started running (there is about a 1/2 acre fenced in area for the dogs to play), and he was paling around with all the other dogs.  It took Bella a little longer to leave our side, but she finally did venture out by herself.  We stayed about 45 minutes, and by then they were sooooo tired!  It was funny - for the rest of the night they just laid on the couch.  This is in no way typical. I think we're going to make the trip to the dog park more often! :)

We just got the results of Dan's physical and in the words of the doctor, he is "perfect. "  I'm never going to hear the end of it.  :)

Anyone out there moving to Salt Lake?  We {still} have a great house for sale there!!

Yes, more pages!

So DID with Jessica Sprague is over. :(  It has been a super fun 4-weeks, though!  

The last assignment of the class is this one - all about my in-laws.  We learned extraction, which I am loving!  And of course a few other tricks. :)  The second page is one I made with a template from the class.  

Thanks for taking a look!

New Pages!

I've been busy with some pages this weekend.  The first two are from Marsh & Emily's wedding last spring.  The others are from our trip to Alaska a few years ago.  Thanks for looking!

Temple book pages

I've been meaning to do the Rexburg LO for a while. It was a challenge over at a few weeks ago.  I really like the way it turned out!  I also just finished these other LOs for my temple book.  I'm trying to decide if it should be a 6x6 or 8x8 book.  What do you think?  It's fun to look back at all the temples we've been to!

Week 3: Whew!

Holy Moly!  This was a long and challenging lesson!  So many new things to learn!  I have been so busy with work stuff that I haven't had a lot of time to experiment with the techniques we are learning in Digi: In Deep, but even just following the lesson I am learning soooo much!  And I'm loving every minute of it!

Catching up... and more Layouts

Wow!  It has been a busy couple of weeks.  One week.  Has it really only been one week??  

Here are some LOs I've been working on... in class & out.  I'm having so much fun at the DID class, but MAN, it's hard to keep up!  

Other than that, nothing new to report.  Just pluggin' along, you know?
