Credits: Digital Compilations by Cinda's "Free to Be Me" Kit. Journaling: While we were on our family vacation we invited Nathan and Becky to come spend an evening with us. They met us at Epcot, we hung out in the garden maze in England, chatted, ate some fish and chips, did some walking around, and ended up in Norway to watch the fireworks show. When the park closed and we headed to our cars the girls fell asleep while we talked some more. Epcot, April 2008.
It was for the Divine Digital July Song Lyrics Challenge with ABCreations. I really enjoy doing challenges because they get me motivated to do more layouts and help me think outside the box of what I would normally do.
Do you enjoy scrapbook challenges? If so, what are some of you favorites?
Journaling: 01.01.11 - Campout with our beloved co-workers.. The highlight of the year! With: sleeping under the stars, campfires, games, fireworks, and movie by projector.
02.01.11 - Drive home with a stop on the side of the road to pick-up smoked meat. Picnic on a mat with cokes, meat, apples, and pringles. Great family time.
03.01.11 - Last day of the break before heading back to school and work. Finishing up all the procrastinated work that piled up while we were having too much fun.
04.01.11 - Mom’s first attempt at Chicken Pot Pie from scratch which was, very surprisingly, a hit with everyone! The first day back to school and work went well.
05.01.11 - Oh hammy day! A package for the girls from Mimi with lots of goodies.
06.01.11 - Skype has been such a huge blessing to us since we moved overseas. We get to keep in touch with so many of our loved ones. Today we got to “see” Pop-Pop and also Nana via skype. It’s only been a few weeks since we got to see them and we already miss them so much.. We’re glad we got to talk with them today!
07.01.11 - Today there was lots of work to do and errands to run but we got to end the day with a relaxing family movie night. It’s a great way to end the week.
08.01.11 - Today, as always, is our relaxing, low-key, day-around-the-house where we do very little, enjoy each others company, watch movies, play games, have big tickle fests, drag out every toy we own and play with them, etc. And, that is
exactly what we did today and each of us enjoyed each and every minute of it.
It was indeed a week full of blessing and I am so excited to document this whole year this way. I can not wait to see what blessings await our family this week!

Journaling: We had been so very homesick and praying that God would make a way for us to be able to go home for a visit. He used some dear friends of ours to help us to purchase two of our five tickets! We wrote a message on paper and cut each word out. We then numbered them and the girls took turns opening and reading the words until the message was complete and the suprise was finally revealed- we were going to be going on a to the...U.S.!
