A Heart of Hurt

It has been a horrible week to say the least. I along with the nation mourn the death of the children (and adults) of Sandy Hook elementary. I have grandchildren of that age and it angers me that someone can have so little regard for the most precious among us and seek to do them harm. I am angered to the point of eating my emotions and then not being able to stomach anything because I have ulcer like symptoms. I don't know the answer but do know that we can't only talk about gun control without touching on mental health and other topics of culture and our acceptance of violence. Then to top it all off, Monday we received that family friends had been found dead, the result of murder/suicide. The husband killed his wife and a precious 13 year  old boy, the best friend of my granddaughter. When told of this horrific news, most people that knew them were not surprised with the manner of death, he had been depressed for years. What does this say about us, what if anything can we do if anything? It is for this reason that I haven't been able to blog much but I will go on in tribute to my grandchildren and post their beautiful faces on here. 

It was Aidens 8th birthday on the 13th and we celebrated at Chuckee Cheese on Saturday. The kids had a blast and it was fun for all of us. 

The birthday boy having a great time!!!

I have been an absentee blogger

This month is flying by and I have been remiss in posting anything at all. I need to correct this and post more regularly. We have 2 birthdays this month. Amelia was  8 on the 6th  and today is Aidens 8th birthday! We are going to celebrate this Saturday at ChuckeCheese. I feel sorry for the servers there, they must be deaf by now. I have the shopping done and I need to wrap before Miss Mia spends the night this Saturday. I don't want her peeking. I have been going over pictures from Christmases past and making a Christmas album so that they can be in one place. I am a little slow at the process but that is okay, I have a feeling that this will carry over into the New Year.  I am setting here looking out on the yard and can't believe that we have no snow again this year. What is up with the weather patterns? I don't want a blizzard but a light dusting every now and then would be okay. We need the moisture so bad and face a drought again. Have a great week!

Journal Your Christmas

I have just begun the Journal Your Christmas project at Shimelle.com. I love the format she uses and will adapt it to fit what I want to record. This should be fun and I love taking classes there and chatting with the global scrapping community. Here is the beginning of the album I will be creating.
