I am glad to stay that we officially have sold our house in TN! As of lunch time yesterday, everyone had signed on the dotted line and we are now FREE of the house in TN! I was at my Beth Moore Bibe study, Living Beyond Yourself and the session was on Joy, when J texted me and told me all the papers had been signed and it was a done deal! Talk about joy....I literally started to cry I as so happy...I am sure everyone around me thought I was crazy but if you have ever paid two mortgages then you know the relief it brings when you are freed of one!!! All I said was, "Praise God!"

Riley's First Day of School

Riley has been having a great time at school and I have been catching up on some house stuff during that time. He goes M-W-F. This Monday, we have Moments with Moms...I will get to go to school and spend some time with him in his classroom and then we will go to chapel as a class. It should be fun!

Here is a little clip of us walking into school on the first day. Riley DID NOT want his picture taken.

Pachelbel Bedtime

Is this how you would sum up bedtime at your house?

Tuesday, August 28, 2007


I can't sleep since my darling pre-schooler woke me up!!!! He has been waking up and coming down stairs and will just stand at our bedroom door and when he sees no one is going to respond, he goes back upstairs to bed. But I hear him and pretend that I am sleeping! Why am I the only one who hears him and J gets to sleep soundly!!!! So here I am!

I am actually having one of those weeks as a parent where you feel like nothing you do is right....actually it's been a few weeks....and nothing seems to penetrate their little brains, which is so frustrating!!!! Everything I say seems to go in one ear and out the other.... you discipline and your child just looks at you or cries for 5 seconds, I guess they cry to make you feel better, and then acts like nothing has ever happened and continues to do the very same thing he just got disciplined for!! Is it just me? What am I doing wrong...it just seems like nothing is working!!! UGH!!! No wonder I am so tired!!! Anyhoo...that was my rant!

I guess I will post something crafty while I am here!

These are jr sizes legal pads...they are on the inside...I forgot to take a picture. The initials are for the special secret gals I made them for! They were fun to make!!! I found the "how -to" on Splitcoast.

Supplies: Pick a Petal stamp set, Cardstock: Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabit, Soft Sky, Whisper White. Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, and I forgot what color I used for the center. The initials are chipdboard from local suppy store. All supllies Stampin' Up unless stated.

Here is a card I made some time ago. It's called a matchbox card since it opens like one., again "how-to" on SCS.

Supplies: Vases in Vogue hostess stamp set, Fall Flowers Designer Paper, Cardstock: Soft Sky, Kraft Whisper White. Ink: Black, Soft Sky, Old Olive marker, and Groovy Guava. Crystal Effects. Marvy Scalloped Punch....not sure what size.

Ok... I think I will try now and go back to sleep. Maybe sometime tomorrow I will try and post Boog's first day at pre-school!

I guess I will post.....

Ok, since J started blogging I guess I will too! I do have to admit though some of you may be bored since I will post my stamping stuff!!! Some of you aren't the crafty type...you know who you are! :) I will also post some family going-ons!

So what is new with the Slinkys....we are still a two mortgage paying fam!! Nothing yet!!! Keep on praying!!!

The boys are good...Boogs (don't ask...aka R) will start pre-school at the end of Aug and then it will be just me and Peanut! Oohhhh what will we do!!! The Rockstar (as J is know by the boys) and the Queen (me, according to the Rockstar) will start going to a small group at our new church, North Point Community Church . The pastor is Andy Stanley, Dr. Charles Stanley's son. I didn't even know Dr. Stanley had pastored a church here. Although we miss Rex, we have been blessed with by the pastors that have taught us. Besides that nothing else.

Ok for those who aren't crafty you may want to stop reading and come back another day! :) For my friend, H....I actually did this while the kids watched tv....I know I AM A BAD MOTHER!!!!! Here is something I made today for a challenge at SCS...if you are crafty and haven't been to this site...BEWARE....it can and will get you in trouble. I have other things I have created that Iwill post over time!

Well, I guess that will be all for now!!!
