I am starting my Project 52 Book and have high hopes that I will finish it this year . . . a simple page design using the same background paper throughout and Katie's Rounded Corner Clipping Masks along with minimal journaling should make this project fairly easy. I've a terrible track record with my books . . . something or other always comes up to side track my best efforts. I am working of four or five UFO's right now . . . someday, I will finish them and have them printed. Our year began with a bang . . . we were so pleased that our youngest grandchild would be spending six days with us!! Photos galore for a few days.


Journaling: We started the new year out by taking a few Christmas decorations down and being lazy! Bess & Doug and the children left on the morning of New Year's Eve and we spent the Eve watching football. On Friday I drove to Centre to meet Bess and pick up little Amelia to bring her back home for a few days at our house. Bess & Doug flew to Miami on Saturday for the Alabama - Notre Dame BCS bowl game! Michael has some sort of awful cold, so I've talked to him a few times this week . . . it looks like Mitchell & James are over their bout with bronchitis, thank goodness. I think that all of the children started school on the 4th except for Amelia and Mitchell. Our New Year's prayer is for healing for all who suffer and are frail.
