4 years ago today we had this crying, hollering, fit-throwing baby girl placed into our arms. It seems like yesterday and yet a life-time ago. Those first few moments and hours are burned into my brain. And here we are 4 years later and she is one of the happiest, go-lucky little girls around. It has been a roller coaster ride that we have been thrilled to be on. Everyday her personality and love for life just gets bigger and bigger. I don’t know what I would do without my little Catherine in my life. I know that when either John or I are away from home, we are truly never alone because we always have our little shadow close at hand. She keeps us company, brings us joy, makes us laugh, teaches us so many things, humbles us, loves us unconditionally, and reminds us of the love of God each and everyday.
Happy Forever Family Day! I couldn’t think of a better gift than my family and Catherine was our little miracle. We love you to pieces my dear, sweet baby!

Spring has showed up early here in Texas! I am loving all of the flowers that are popping up over here.
And of course my other pretty flower
My art space is a hot mess right now. I haven’t straightened it up or really cleaned the area in about two months, so my table is a complete and total disaster. Send in the craft FEMA. I am planning on getting in there tomorrow to clean, organize and purge. I need to figure out what I have in my supplies to be able to use in my PL album. I also need to have a space dedicated to my art journal supplies. Hopefully I can get most of that done tomorrow. I also want to knock this past week’s PL out of the way. It will be a smaller week than last week’s, so it should be pretty easy.
Hope you are having a great Saturday!
This week’s Project Life had a lot going on since we visited the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. I decided on using page protector G, A and an 8 1/2×11 to get everything in. I used some papers, stickers, washi tape, and ephemra that I had in my stash. I also used some stamps for decorations. It took me about 2 hours to get this whole week completed. I really like how it turned out. I can definitely tell that I am getting better at this type of scrapbooking. My style has evolved from my first layout the first week of January.
