Summer, Summer, Summer time....and digiments!

For some reason I have that song on my mind this morning! Perhaps it's the beautiful Colorado skies that I have been waking up to lately...our rain has finally let up! If you live outside of Colorado...I guess I should explain that we have had rain every single day (not even joking) from the end of May until last week...I thought I was going to go crazy! Lucky for us it was usually in the afternoon...but we are just now getting true summer time weather...HOT...and boy does it feel good!

So, it's been a while since I have blogged. I have received several emails...thank you everyone for your kind words and thoughts...I am enjoying the summer with my family! Although we haven't really gone on any "big trips" we have just enjoyed the simpler things in life like hanging outside every night watching the kids ride bikes, socialize with neighbors, and having BBQ's with friends.

Some of our big accomplishments/happenings this summer (I really need to get some pictures)

1. Jackson (my oldest) broke yet another arm! UGH! He went to his grandparents house for a week...had a blast and on the last day broke his he has a cast up his arm (I SO need to take a photo...)
2. Ashlee is now officially able to ride her bike without training wheels. She has been doing it for a little while on her own but she is finally over the bump of being scared and she is crazy wild on her bike this summer...that's my girl!
3. I've been getting my bootie kicked by Jillian...yep enjoying her work out tapes...that girl does not mess around! Happy to report that I am feeling a lot better :)
4. Everyone has a killer tan...well except me ;) LOL I don't think I could ever get dark...well and Gavin too LOL he's going to be a real white/pale boy just like his Mom :)
5. We have really all grown closer over the summer...which is just one of the coolest things about having your kids home for the summer :)

Okay enough rambling...I am so going to be taking more photos. Chad and I have also taken a little photo course together so no more excuses for him about not using the camera.

So, I have done a little creating too...not a bunch but a little. I can't believe that my 3-month design term is coming to a end over at digiments this month. I have enjoyed creating with Michelle's digiments, but I have decided that in order to focus more on my family, I will not be able to continue on at this time...I wish Michelle much success in her endeavor.

Today I have a sneak peak for you using one of the digiments from the newest release (coming out tomorrow)! The sentiment on this little card came from the kids bible quotes (*these are so fun you are going to love them):

You are going to love this set of digiments....24 Digiments in total will be released TOMORROW!! - priced at $1 each with a $5 minimum purchase, or $10 for the entire new release. Also make sure to check out the current contest going on over at digiments you could win the entire set for free!

I've also started creating little things here and there for our Disney Cruise that we will be taking at the end of August! I can't believe how fast the date is will be here before we know it! Here's one of the little autograph books that I made with my daughter yesterday...

Well we are off to get ready for the day...I am taking the kids to ride a train in one of our local parks and then we will head over to have lunch with Dad :) Have a super weekend everyone!

I LOVE your Disney autograph book. I made one for each of the kids when we went in December...we loved them, and they got lots of comments from the characters when we were there about their lil' books too!!
So glad to hear you are enjoying the family time - can't wait to see pictures!

You are so very talented, and it's been a joy to me each month to see what you've created. I totally understand your desire to spend more time with your family, and I'm sure that they love and appreciate you for that!
