I'm Back?

We are trying to get back in the swing of things around here. It's just weird not having Mom around. My Dad's birthday is tomorrow. We were going to take him out but we our going out Thursday after Hannah runs so he wanted to wait and do it then to save money. He's so sweet to think of everybody else. So Brent suggested cooking out hamburgers. Sounds like a plan Stan :)

So Mom was into Stampin' Up! stuff. She liked buying it more than actually using it. I would try to slow her down buying stuff but then she said she wanted me to have it when she passed away so I told her to keep on buying. It was our little joke. I much rather have her here than me having her Stampin' Up! stuff. Anyway, I started going thru her stuff and lawsy lawsy lawsy she had a lot more than I knew. I went thru her stamps and picked out what was more of my style. I have 30 containers. Let me repeat that. 30. Containers. And there is still more left in her craft room. She had the entire set of markers and ink pads. Entire. Sets. She also had a Big Shot plus some dies that she hadn't even used. I told Daddy that he might want to step out of the house when I started taking it out so he didn't know how much she spent :)! I have no idea where I'm going to put it all but I will put it to good use Mom. I promise.

Hannah is cheering on Saturdays for the peewee football games (only 4th grade).

It was nasty wet during the game so I didn't get my good camera out. I took this after we got back home from the game. The boys lost, but the Cheercats did awesome. I heard they did better than the 5th and 6th graders. I was very proud of them.

This is a page I started before our world was turned upside down. That seems like ages ago but it's only been a couple of weeks. I only had to add the "slurp". We had some watermelon left over from July 4th so Brent iced one and we ate it the next day. Hannah really didn't like the watermelon but went and got a straw to slurp up the juice.

So that was a totally random post, huh? :)

Aww, sweetie. Hugs to you for your mama. And your poor daddy. You know, it's been a year and a half since my mom passed away, and some days I still forget that she's gone. My dad is doing better than I thought. I take him groceries and stuff. He finally got the hang of paying bills. Mom took care of all that stuff. Take care, and if you want to talk, I'm just a PM away.

Hannah looks adorable in her cheer outfit! I love your page, too. I can't imagine what you must be feeling. I am so afraid of the day when my parents go. Wow! I can't believe how much stamping stuff she had! LOL! At least you will always have this hobby (that you had in common!) to remember her through!
