Pics of the Month-November

Friday, December 3, 2010
It is so challenging for me to go through the hundreds of pictures Charles and I are taking each month and pick only a few to share with you all.  The month went by with a blink of an eye.  November was filled mostly with just living life with a bit of excessive eating at the end of the month.  We had a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner made by yours truly, Lisa and Shanthi.

Lisa made her world famous pepper spiral ham and I made a turkey.  We also had Mom Roberts' homemade stuffing and sweet potatoes, smashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, cranberries, dinner roles and of course, pumpkin pie.  :-)  

My two handsome sons.  Tristen loves his little brother!

Tristen has a new obsession with wife beater tank tops.  I bought him a pack 
and now he wears one every day under is cloths.

This might be my most favorite picture ever.

Megan is such a wonderful helper and loves to help take
care of Draven.

Current obsession.  
Nonfat Chai Tea Latte with sugar free vanilla and hazelnut.  

So gosh darn cute, just melts my heart. 

All ready for Santa.  He's real, you know.

 <3 love.  

Pics of the Month

Saturday, November 13, 2010
I'm going to make an attempt at keeping an online photo journal to share with family and friends who live too far away.  "Pics of the Month" will be a monthly documentation of things we did, places we went, and everyday home life featuring my beautiful family and friends.  Thanks for sharing this beautiful journey with us.  Even if it is only via the world wide web.  

 Kind of hard to see but he's sporting a lil' mohawk 
and of course the cutest little smile ever.  

Draven and Daddy sleeping.  We catch the z's whenever we can in this house,
whether it's laying down or sitting up.  

Quick trip to Minneapolis on Saturday, October 30th.
Charles had a free night at HGI for winning the National Employee of the Year.
Way to go, honey!  So proud of your accomplishment!

Late night tour of the property.
Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Minneapolis is fabulous.

 Beautiful pool area.

Gorgeous view of downtown.
I love the lights in this photo.  

Me lookin' not so hot and the lil' peanut.
I do love this pic, though.    

The photographer, Charles

 Beautiful day downtown Minneapolis.

Hard Rock Cafe Minneapolis.  We had
a tasty lunch before heading to the 
Mall of America.  

Trick or Treating @ the Mall of America.
There were way too many people
and not enough candy. 

We now have a drum set in the studio.
Our neighbors love us.  

 I scored an iPod at work for makin' a couple of big sales.  SUH-weeeet! 

 My future Rock Star just kickin' it.

 His Daddy Rocks.

Blowin' bubbles.  

 Charles and I had our first date night in 3 months with no kids on
November 11, 2010.
Thank you to Lisa and Shanthi for babysitting!
We went to see Filter play a show at The Hub here in Fargo.
They played an awesome show and were in top form.

Our awesome friend Frank scored us all access passes.
(Thanks, Frank!)

 We hung out with the guys in the dressing room before the show 
and watched the show from just feet away.

Unfortunately, I was sick, so went home right after the show 
instead of hanging out with the guys.  

The guys played old favorites like Jurassitol, Take a Picture and 
Hey Man Nice Shot.  Charles got to catch up with Rich
 and visit with the other guys he hadn't met before
and test out how the new camera lens' worked in a concert setting.  
Not too shabby.  

I Need a New Blog Name

Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Following other crafters on twitter, I've recently discovered that there is ANOTHER blogger who calls his blog A Load of Scrap as well.  As far as I can tell, I've had my name longer, BUT, this dude is seriously more serious than I am.  It's really a fantastic blog and he has some awesome tips and ideas.  He's really good at documenting them, too.  So now I find myself brain storming for a new blog name.  Darn.  I love this blog name, but don't want the same name as another, so...this blog shall be renamed.  Any suggestions??  I'm thinking of mixing it up a bit, where I'm not ONLY blogging about scrapping.  While I love sharing my work with you all, there are ALOT of blogs out there that you can gain a lot more information from.  I will blog about every day life, funny things that happen, photos that I snap, music that I love, etc.  I was thinking of Paper Scissors Rock and Roll.  Anybody have anything for me?

In the meantime, you can find the OTHER Load of Scrap here.

I'm just getting into the grove of creating and finding time for myself after having Draven on August 27th.

I forget just how consuming having an infant in the house is.


Mini Album-Featuring My Belly

Monday, August 2, 2010
Charles and I hung up a sheet and set up the Nikon D90 for some belly shots.  It was a challenge for me because I haven't felt very attractive since the onslaught of my ever growing belly.  I've never been a "glowing" pregnant lady.  Anyways-the pictures did turn out well-I really love them.  I made a mini album documenting my hugeness.  

I found this album at my local scrapbooking store.  It's made by My Mind's Eye and features flocked covers and 10 blank pages.  It was only $7!!  To make it easy on myself, I stuck to only 3 colors.
