Prayer Requests June 25, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 1:56 pm

My husband has a co-worker who recently found out he has an aneurism.  Dave could use some prayers.  Also, Leah has a little friend who recently got some bad news.  To keep things private for the family, I won’t share…please keep them in your prayers.

Leah turns 5 today!  So very hard for me to believe!  Leah was born 7 weeks premature after 3 long months of hospitalized bedrest.  We are so very blessed to have her in our lives.  She is such a strong, independent, funny, vivacious little girl. 

We love you bunches!!

OK, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share any designs just yet.  My paper is still in the process of being printed.  This is from the “Cream of Mushroom” line.  It’s one of my favorite designs.  Please keep in mind that it will be printed on a different medium and not on white stock. 

I hope you like it as much as I do!  Thanks for looking!


Fun Bits from the week…

I’m trying to get into a routine of posting some fun stuff that happened in the last week.  With 3 little ones, things pass by quickly and I enjoy sharing them with you.  It also helps me keep a record of things.  I hope you enjoy reading them.

Fun Bits for the week of June 16th…

* Leah telling me she only wants 2 kids in our family.  I asked her why and she explained “that’s what all of my friends have”.  I guess some of you have to get on the ball and make more babies!

*  Kami chasing Lily around the first day she returned saying, “yea-yea, yea- yea, yea- yea” (that’s how she say’s Lily).

* Brooke and Kami staring (goofy, blank stares) at me while I was dancing in the kitchen one evening.  After a little bit they decided to join in.  Kami gets her hands going and Brooke started bobbing her head.

* Leah celebrated her 5th birthday Saturday with lots of family and friends.  She had a great time!




Wisdom Teeth

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 9:00 pm

Well, I had my wisdom teeth out today.  Yes, I know I’m a little old for that.  So far things are going well.  I was a bit groggy from the anesthesia but other than that I’ve been feeling pretty good.  I even ate pasta for dinner.  I guess I won’t be losing 10lbs from not being able to eat! 

I was chuckling to myself when the oral surgeon came in.  My MIL and FIL were in town to help with the girls today (thanks again Don and Jan).  My FIL wanted me to ask to take my teeth home.  For some reason, he wanted to see them.  We even told Leah that maybe the tooth fairy would come if I put the teeth under my pillow.  Maybe, just maybe, the tooth fairy would leave me something good!  Ha!  Unfortunately, I was knocked out quickly and didn’t get to ask for the teeth.  When we got home, Leah asked to see the teeth.  She was bummed that we didn’t have the.

OK, feel like I’m rambling.  I’m still groggy!


Hawaii June 20, 2008

I keep getting these e-mails from about visiting Hawaii.  Yes, I would love, love, love to visit again!  I signed up on the website when we were planning our trip in 2005.  Gosh, I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 years since we went to Maui and Kauai!  Anyhow, it reminded me of a layout I did with some 8X10 pics.  I thought I would share it with you…

Sorry, it doesn’t line up exactly.  I had fun making this layout and loved the vivid colors!  Hawaii was so fun and there were so many great photo opportunities.

Thanks for looking!


Slow going this week

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 9:05 am

Sorry I haven’t posted much this week.  With birthday parties, post-vacation work, my husband traveling and cleaning up the garage from the garage sale (yes, I know that was several weeks ago)…I haven’t had much time nor the energy.  Funny, because I only have 2 kids this week.  Leah is visiting her cousins in Pennsylvania – driving Aunt Kathy crazy.  You would think I would be able to accomplish loads more – not the case.   Hopefully I’ll get back on track soon!
