Thanks for this fun challenge, Bailey! My layout uses a couple of photos of one of our grandsons, as he tastes a few of the snowflakes for today’s snowfall! Needless to say, we have very few snowfalls with much accumulation in the South! [b]Journaling:[/b] You were so excited to see the first snow of the season falling . . . but, so sad when we only got flurries with a few snowflakes!

I am telling a bit of a story for the Christmas of 1972 when our three boys were small. The page is also a new page for my Family Christmas Card book, which I began last year. This year when we send out our Christmas cards it will the 49th card we have sent since our wedding just before the Christmas of 1966. For years, I have been meaning to make a book for each of our children containing each of our cards. I’m starting this book fully aware that I’ve several other Christmas book yet unfinished . . . but, plugging along at each of them when the mood strikes me! This 1972 card was the 7th one we sent to friends and family . . . this year we were stationed at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. I am probably going to make this book where it can have pages added as the years roll on and Christmas cards are added one by one. Right now my plans are to do one book for the first 25 years and another for the second 25. My immediate goal is to have the first book done by next Christmas as a gift to each of our four children. [b]Journaling:[/b] The Christmas of 1972, we were stationed at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina and living in a house which Ernie &amp; I were renovating in the Cottonade subdivision in Fayetteville. We bought the old house there in the spring of ‘72 and moved in with Kevin was 2 days old! This Christmas was the first of three Christmas’s there. We didn’t go to Cookeville this year for Christmas day, but stayed in our new house. Daddy rode the Greyhound bus down and spend the holidays with us . . . I guess that he road the bus back to Tennessee later on too . . . I just can’t remember! I do remember that the weather was beautiful on Christmas day that year . . . I had written down in a little notebook that it was 60-degrees and that Michael and Mark went outside to play with some of their new Tonka trucks in the big sand pile which Ernie was using to mix concrete . . . few days earlier it was 75-degrees. I made Michael’s &amp; Mark’s little red striped pajamas and Kevin wore the little striped nightshirt, which I had made for Michael for his second Christmas. Santa Claus brought the boys a bouncy horse to ride, red rubber boots, books, Playschool barn and animals, Fisher Price record player, a little walking robot. Aunt Lucille gave baby Kevin a sweet little stuffed dog which she got at Christmas Village in Nashville when she and I went down when we were home for Thanksgiving. Aunt Velma made cozy white terry cloth bathrobes. Mother and Daddy gave them the barn &amp; record player. Mark got a burn on his face that Christmas from Pa Pa Pat’s cigarette . . . it wasn’t bad, but Daddy felt just awful over it all. I felt sorry for Daddy . . . it hurt him much longer than it did little Mark. The photo, which I used on our card this year, was made at the K-Mart in Cookeville after Thanksgiving.

This year I am going to be out of town for a while before Christmas and things are going to be much simpler. I love my glittery St. Nicks and love how they look with these amazing sunflowers left over from Thanksgiving mixed with fresh pine boughs. [b]Journaling;[/b] This little pine chest sits in our family room and must be moved to another location when we put out tree up. This year we will be putting up the tree late, so the glorious sunflowers and pine will be where for a little while longer than usual.

All of that wrapping paper is in the Target display rack . . . I bought one roll of the XXX wide stuff! (it sure does look like it is all in my cart!!)

My photographs are going to mainly be of items, which I am thankful for around our house. These are the little inconsequential things that I take for granted, but am also thankful for. [b]Journaling:[/b] I am thankful for our abundant trees. Thankful that when we bought this old house almost 40 years ago that it came with hundreds of old and young trees to shelter us, to provide shade for our children to play under, to allow them branches to climb on and sturdy trunks to build tree houses up as high as the sky! I am thankful for the entertaining and annoying squirrels that feast and hoard the fallen pecans and for the birds, which gather among the leaves. And, as much as I dislike losing a tree to storms, I know that storms are the very best way to remove weak and dead limbs. This old pecan tree in our front yard had a huge limb, which was broken, and hanging precariously for months . . . much too high for us to remove . . . we just walked in a wide swath when the wind blew! Two days ago we had a storm and the next morning we found that the limb was safely removed for us. Papa got his chain saw and sawed it into fireplace-sized logs to move near the barn where he stacks firewood for the winter. There was abundant kindling and abundant mess too! We will clean up the mess and later, have warm evenings this winter with logs in our fireplace!

Today I chose [u][b][url=http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/ideas/showphoto.php?photo=211262&amp;title=prince-charming&amp;cat=500]“Prince Charming”[/url][/b][/u] to lift . . . [I]My photo wasn't staged . . . I just happened to walk by the room and see this before me. Grabbed my camera and snapped off four quick shots. When I loaded them to my computer yesterday evening I laughed out loud! I think the quote should be Haughty &amp; Nice!! LOL[/I] [b]Journaling:[/b] Today is the day after Thanksgiving . . . we all slept late today . . . Austin &amp; Callie slept really, really late! It was ten o’clock before their little feet hit the ground. No waffles this morning . . . cold cereal . . . Rice Krispies &amp; Coco Pebbles filled their bowls. The Thanksgiving table decorations were being dismantled and Callie crowned the two of them with the wreaths, which surrounded each candlestick. They made grand crowns for a post Thanksgiving breakfast. I only wish I knew what this intense conversation was all about . . . looks like he is begging and she is saying nothing doing!

I never thought that I would become attached to them, but now that they are gone from our home pastures I really miss them. I don’t miss opening and closing the gates now that the weather is so cold when we need to drive down our driveway! [b]Journaling:[/b] This is my view from our breakfast table each morning. The minute that these girls hear the backdoor open they come to the fence with the clear knowledge that they are going to see Papa and that he is going to feed them. I enjoy their presence so much, but I know that very soon our five girls and one little guy will be going back to the farm to join their cousins where there is abundant winter grasses. When they leave my window, I will miss them so much.

I have loved [b]Kelly’s (mugsbigsis)[/b] Halloween pages of her cute boys from the first one she posted last year . . . this year I started my own of our children when they were young. As of today, I have finished two pages . . . 1977 &amp; 1969 . . . I’ve got some digging to do to find more photos from way-back-when! [b]Journaling:[/b] Michael you were 15 months old for your second Halloween. We were living at Aunt Velma’s house while your Daddy was in Vietnam . . . I took this photograph of you and sent it to him in a letter after Halloween. When he came back home this photo came back with him . . . A bit tattered and bent, but loved. Your costume this year was your blue fleece sleepers and a red felt ruff and cuffs, which Aunt Velma made for you. We made a hat from red poster paper big round golden stickers on the front. I don’t remember just where we went, but I am sure we took you to Aunt Lucille’s house and to Ha Hee’s house too. The photo was made in Ha Hee’s &amp; Papa Pat’s den. I imagine that we went to see Rubye Rose &amp; Robert and Frances &amp; Ed too.

[b]Journaling:[/b] We took a short road trip this past weekend to visit our grandchildren and to attend a Veteran’s Day celebration at the school where two of them attend. Of course, we had roadwork on the interstate, so I passed the time and entertained myself by snapping photos and playing with them with a new app, which I downloaded on my phone.

My photographs are going to mainly be of items, which I am thankful for around our house. These are the little inconsequential things that I take for granted, but am also thankful for. I just started!! Will finish days one, two and four today. [b]Journaling:[/b] I have had a love of colored pencils since I was a little girl. I can remember visiting Jo Haile’s brother, Owen Griffin’s Art Supply store in downtown Nashville when I was around 10 years old and loving a large set of brightly colored pencils. Later that year, Santa Claus brought a set just like them to me on Christmas Day! I still have odds &amp; ends of that old set and have added many more to them. I now love the watercolor pencils too. I have an entire row of old mugs and glasses full of my collection and love having them handy for my projects. The tall white container and the mug with pink flowers painted on it are two that Beth made while taking ceramics at Camp Monterey when she was a child. The mug on the left is one, which our children gave their Daddy on Father’s Day in 1978. These days, our grandchildren enjoy using my colored pencils almost as much as I do and create beautiful drawing with them.

The early group of founding fathers was invited to come back to commemorate the first fraternity on the campus. Most of this early group returned for a wonderful weekend of fun and memories. Around 30 members and their wives practically took over the Holiday Inn Express for three days . . . and returned to campus for a reception with the university president and a welcome back to the fraternity house for a look around as all the old photographs and memories that it invoked . . . and, a wonderful buffet of donuts from Ralph’s, which opened in town about the time we all entered college in 1963! My favorite thing was meeting the golden eagle mascot again after all of these years! P.S. I didn’t go to the game . . . it was tooooo cold!!

Mark wanted to be a hobo and found old clothes to put on with a smashed top hat from our toy chest. He stuffed his shirt with cotton batting to make himself look fat and I put make-up on his face. Michael was a pirate this year and designed his own costume using a blouse from my closet. Beth was a little clown for the second year in a row . . . I had made Michael &amp; Mark clown costumes when they were 2 &amp; 4 years old . . . the yellow one fit Beth for two years.

Next year, we will start a project for the best clam chowder in Maine! That will be very difficult, since he thinks that each bowl is the best ever! We really missed chowder this October . . . no trip . . . been just way over the top to busy with other stuff to travel there. Of course, we eat other things there too . . . lobster for one &amp; fried clams for two . . . we consume lots of them too!!! In this photo we were in Camden and the restaurant had a limited menu as they were to close on October 30th for the season . . . were cleaning out their pantry . . . but, had plenty of chowder and fried clams still. [b]Journaling:[/b] If it is fall it must be New England . . . it is New England, it must be Maine . . . and, if it is Maine, it must be Clam Chowder every day! When we go to New England we usually fly into Manchester, NH &amp; pick up our rental car and go straight to Legal Seafood for Ernie’s first cup of Clam Chowder. From there on, he eats at least one bowl each day and often eats three a day. We can tally from a dozen or more bowls for the trip . . . and, then reminisce about them and look forward to the next year!

Trying to keep this simple so I can move on. [b]Journaling:[/b] I found this soup recipe on the King Arthur Flour internet site and made it the same day I found it. It is a good hearty soup for a cool autumn or winter’s evening meal. Ernie and I love that it has barley in it. I always took a few quarts to Aunt Velma when I made it and it was a hit with her too! I love to see these sparkling clean jars cock-full of soup sitting on my counter top ready to put in the refrigerator for us to draw on all through the winter.

Today Connie gives us a [u][b][url=http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/blog/template-mash-scrapbook-challenge-apple-eye]Template Mash Up Challenge[/url][/b][/u] using two delightful templates from Cathy Z and Kayleigh. This layout is my take on mixing these two up!! [b]Journaling:[/b] Fifteen or twenty years ago, the state provided American Chestnut seedlings to homeowners to plant on their land. We took about a dozen of them and planted them around our home. And, then we forgot about them until about five years ago when we noticed that we had chestnuts all over the ground. Once we gathered them and removed the prickly burrs, Ernie picked up gallon after of the nuts. I remembered the men in Paris roasting chestnuts on the streets when we were in the Army and living in Germany, and how good they tasted . . . I tried doing the same, but they were a complete failure for me! We continue to gather each autumn and give them to friends. This year as the chestnut burrs were falling, I asked our grandson, Harrison if he would put some heavy gloves on and pick them up for 3 cents each. He did and earned $5.00! Our grandchildren enjoy eating them. Ernie takes bags of them to the nice Laotian lady where we take our dry cleaning.

Of course being with friends, good food and catching up is the very best of it all!! Always the best trip of the year it seems.

I had forgotten about this shot of him until I was going through my old Flickr Photo Stream the other day and found that I had forgotten about many of my favorite photos. The woods behind out house is so pretty in the early spring when the wild flowers are blooming so we decided to take a hike on this day. There is a wonderful perfectly round domed rock where we walk . . . it is nearly a foot high and about two feet across and has always reminded my of standing on top of the world! This is a layout for the September 12th [u][b][url=http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/blog/lets-blend-scrapbooking-challenge-2/]“Let’s Blend” challenge[/url][/b][/u] on the DD blog. [b]Journaling:[/b] Springtime is the best time for walks in the woods behind our house. In early spring of 2010, 5-½ year old Harrison and I started at the house and hiked to the river. The wild flowers were so pretty and the trees had just begun poking out their pale leaves to the sun. He spied the amazing domed rock all covered in moss. This was the first time that he had seen it and called it the “world rock”. He then stood on the top just as if he were an astronaut standing on the moon for the first time with arms held high!

We had Thanksgiving dinner at Aunt Velma’s house in Cookeville for what would be the last time. After our huge feast, the children when out in the back lot to play and pretty soon there was a roaring game of hide-and-seek. A couple of the boys actually climbed up into the trees to hide, but little Callie who had just turned four hid behind a tree. I just happened to get a photo of her behind the tree but peeking through the double trunk. We think that she thought she was hidden!!!

[b]Journaling:[/b] Gathering the rocks turned in to a community project it seems! First of all Mac began and right on his heels was Mollie Patton doing her share. Papa helped with some especially large rocks or those further away from the construction site. Even Anderson &amp; Monnie added a few here and there! A few weeks ago Campbell, Jackson and Harrison were here working on a similar dam which evidently was wiped away in a heavy rain . . . and after that Austin &amp; Callie were here too, and some of their rocks were very close by and could be easily gathered and transferred. Those were the ones, which Anderson &amp; I got!!!

But, after I began working on it a couple of days ago . . . I was totally stuck until I spied Katie’s newest Blendable Layers No. 02! I adore what Katie is doing with her idea of having blendable layering to use as we see fit! Thanks Katie . . . you do so much for failing mojo!!! [b]Journaling:[/b] Toward the end of June in 2006 when you were only 21 months old, you traveled to our beach house in Florida for the first time. Your mama and daddy asked me to join you for a few days, so I too drove down. I know that you don’t remember not always recognizing Papa &amp; Monnie, but you didn’t. You know, that because you lived far away you didn’t see us every day and would forget just who we were for a little while when you were very little until you got used to us once again. The day I arrived at the beach was the very first time you really did remember me and want me to pick you up! Austin, you just cannot imagine how this thrilled me! I knew that from this day on that I would see in your pretty blue eyes that you knew exactly who I was and that I was your Monnie and that I loved you so much.

So, I took a look on Pinterest and found dozens of great ideas for charts, graphs and cool advertisements containing lists. In my list, I have names only a few of my loves for 2014 . . . I could have filled two or three pages I suppose . . . each time I would finish my layout, I would think that I had to include just one more and so the little black rectangles grew longer and longer. Katie &amp; Cathy have so many cool icons in the store which made this page so much more fun . . . I really found products which I had really not looked at in depth.

The photo is one of our youngest granddaughters at the beach drinking a juice box and looking particularly tired after a day playing in the surf and sand. [b]Journaling:[/b] Amelia is at the beach. I can see the sand across her little face as she drinks from a juice box . . . I can see her wispy hair blowing in the sea breeze . . . I can see the tiredness in her little eyes. After a busy day playing in the sand &amp; surf this little girl is getting tired an was ready for a snack and juice box to keep her going for just a little while longer or until brother and sister are ready to head home too!

I have never tried one of the challenges for this category and thought that I would try this one because of the wonderful colors! Wouldn’t it be fun to have a foyer just like this one? If this were my house, I would have to redecorate the entire place just to go with the fabulous stripe wall and red table! Thanks Hillarey for the fun! [b]Journaling:[/b] After Christmas this year, Monnie drove to your house to pick you up so you could stay with us for a week. You were three years old and cute as a button! One of your favorite things to do inside the house was to cook . . you liked to help Monnie, and you liked to cook all by yourself too. This day I gave you some cookie dough to roll out and make cookies with sprinkles on them! You loved rolling them best of all . . . eating one was a close second. A big smile was on your little face when Papa ate one and told you that were the best cookies ever!

This page was very quick to pull together . . . I changed the template very little.

I have no idea just how all of the years since that blessed day have gone by so quickly! We celebrated his birthday with his children . . . our three grandsons . . . with our youngest son, his wife and two children. The birthday boy celebrated with his wife and friends at the lake!! I seem to remember that a hospital employee may have taken this photograph and gave it to me . . . it is a Polaroid print and is almost faded to nothing now. We never had a Polaroid camera, but are very grateful for the picture. [b]Journaling:[/b] Good morning sweet baby . . . the two of us are new to this world today! You are just a few hours old and I have just been a new mama for those same few hours. I hope you love this world just as much as I do today! We didn’t know before today that you were a little boy . . . and, of course you didn’t know that we had wanted our first baby to be a little boy. You see, we were on the same page right from the beginning. You are the sweetest little thing . . . no fussing, no crying, just as content as you could be. You took to nursing like a little pro . . . that was such a blessing to your mama, because I was a bit nervous about the whole thing. Thankfully, my friend Joan was so helpful in reassuring me that all would be well . . . thank goodness for a friend who had already had her first little boy for seven weeks and was teaching me all she was learning almost every day! There is nothing like friends to cheer us new moms on. Your daddy had so many brothers and sisters that he never got flustered at all . . . and, having my Aunt Lucille with us for those first few months with a new baby in the house was a real help. Our across the hall neighbors, Barb &amp; Dave were there for us too . . . they were old pros with a little boy of their own exactly one year older than you. For a 22 year old new mama who was thousands of miles from home for the first time in her life, you and all of my friends and family in Germany sure made bringing you home from the hospital a piece of cake!!
