Today is a day off from work in the middle of the week because I have to go to work tomorrow. I don't celebrate Thanksgiving so I'm not doing anything today. The house has stayed surprisingly clean since Tuesday (I know that's only 2 days but you don't know how quickly 2 kids can destroy a clan house.) so I really don't have anything major to do around the house. Of course I could straighten out our bookcase or clean off my dresser or find any other list of things to do around the house.

However I'm working on Seth's baby book. He turns 19 months this next week and I have barely made a dent in it. By his age Miranda's book was not only finished, I had added another pack of Creative Memories blank pages that I embellished with paper and stickers. What a difference a second child makes! Poor baby! So among the other 1 million things I have to do I need to finish this baby book. I know it won't get done before the end of the year but I at least want to make some progress.

Scrapbooking is actually a relaxing hobby and I'm doing something good for my kids. They'll have these baby books to look at when they grow up and eventually they can take it to their own home and share it with their families.

I just put Seth down with a bottle a few minutes ago and I heard the bottle hit the rails of the crib, meaning his finished, but I don't hear him. If he's taking a nap I'm going to put the baby book aside and I'm going to write for a little while. I need to review some of what I wrote last time. Yeah, I don't hear him so let me go take advantage of the quiet time. See how I'm never going to finish that baby book!

I love scrapbooking !! i haven't done it in years, but i had so much fun doing it.

I messed up a couple of my pictures, because i glued my pictures to the pages, now i realize that those were the only copies of the pictures.
