OK - Now I am gonna read!

I think that's only fair - after all, Andrea's trip is coming up, in what? 67 days or something? So you won't have to worry about her PTR any longer. . .
Will you keep with the photo-journal style or do up something different?

I love the start of your trip and can't wait to read more!
Phalen keeps asking if I'm working on their scrapbooks when he sees me designing pages LOL... I think I just might have to print these off and put them in a book so he'll feel I'm accomplishing SOMETHING other than just "posting to my friends"

So - Judy - when are we going to start these lessons? Did D~ tell you I bought another vintage machine? This one needs some work done first, but from what she tells me it will have a gorgeous satin stitch when I'm done with it! Then we could sew side by side at my dining room table while the kids play

Yay! Thanks! I TRIED really hard not to make weird faces when photos were being taken - but my mom & dad sure are great at capturing me at my "not-so-great"est That Tink picture I love though - no "weird" look about it, just pure joy!

Yeah - I'm shameless when it comes to advertising my TR Glad to have you along for the crazy ride!

Thanks for joining us! And by the way, did you know D's page is actually Andrea's page? I guess it's mine, Cheryl & Lisa's too, but we're letting Andrea do the heavy lifting on that one. I've got my TR to do, Cheryl had movie production and Navy men invading her house and Lisa's jet-setting to various Disney locales . . . Andrea just has to keep up with work, laundry, and her daughter cracks the whip on new "AG & me" outfits for her and her doll

Can't wait to see more! (cracking the whip here...I mean it is not like you have anything else to do....right?)

Nini
I promised you a shout-out The quilts - yeah, I haven't touched the squares since we've been home (except to move the plastic bags around on my sewing space) . . . I definitely need to get on that in all my spare time! You know, in between TR pages and all

Woohoo! Thanks Andrea! How is your matching outfits production going today? And that laundry? Oh, right, you have to go to WORK Darn it! Those pesky jobs really get in the way, don't they? Don't they understand we have things to do?

Hmmm... Marianne, did you forget to post more last night? ROFL I had blocked off a whole hour for you this morning. Maybe I'll text you to see if you're up???

D~ <----
Sorry D~ I went to bed about 10 last night to read my book club book. It was such a creepy book that I just wanted to be done with it. Disturbing I tell ya! Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk. I don't think I recommend it. I did read it in two nights (but I read pretty quickly). . .

Hmm - maybe I could do two more "pages" for y'all and THEN start my "de-Christmasing" of the house. . .

LOVE your TR style. The words and pictures together make it really enjoyable. I hop you do print out the pictures to make a book for the boys - it would be perfect.

That is a great picture of the family in front of the castle. Can't wait to read about the rest of your trip.

I'm glad you like my photo-journal style! I've spent the morning making more pages instead of cleaning. . .

So sorry that Finn wasn't tall enough yet , he was adorable in the picture though .

Your shoes are AWESOME, wish they would have had better support for you.

Love the pictures of Finn and Phalen at the speedway, they look so happy. Also loved the one with you and the Fairy Godmother.

The Decoupage jeans are amazing, so cute.

I am really loving how you are doing this trip report, so creative and fun ! I can't wait to read more... well after you de-Christmas .
