The writing in the last post didn't come out the way I wanted it to. Oh well at least the picts are up and you all can hopefully enjoy them. :)

Well, we are finally through the sickness, almost, and everyone in the house is now able to carry on their normal life with minimal complaining. I finally finished Deb's 31 Days of photos. It took a while, but I did it. I also did some other layouts for the Color Challenge, Font Challenge (the font is My Turtle), J Burkhart's Template Challenge 16, and the ABC Challenge. B is for Beautiful Rainbow was for the ABC Challenge, Rainbow Days uses the My Turtle font for the title and was for the Font Challenge, and Rainbow was for the Template Challenge.  The layouts for the Color Challenge are the Old/New Refrigerator (it is sure nice to have a working refrigerator!), which I also posted for Day 23 of the 31 photos,  and  Look! I do clean the kitchen! Both use Rose Made Designs February Color Challenge Kit Part 1. Hope fully I can get a couple more layouts made using Parts 1 and 2, then I get the third set as a posting prize. Yay! The rest of the layouts were for Deb's 31 Days of Photos Challenge:

Some New Layouts and I've been sick!
Well actually just about everybody in the house has been sick. DH had the influenza and so did my eldest DS. The girls have been fighting it off fairly effectively. The littlest two came down with fevers and malaise. Omega threw up with the version he had, yuck! Now that we are better I have finished some layouts.

The first layout is of Noe and Kai, the credits can be seen here. The big kids put Kai on Noe's back. She bounced all around, spinning and going up and down. It was quite an exciting adventure for Kai. 

The layout for January 16th is about God's promise of the rainbow. We see many beautiful rainbows here in Hawaii. Find the credits here.
A pair of Cardinals showed up to eat the apple Annabelle had put out to dry. It was fun to watch them eat, but hard to get a picture, they were very skittish. Find the credits for Cardinals here.

The pictures for Fun were taken at the Johnson Ohana on the Fullerton's last evening with us. The kids had a blast, still not realizing that their friends were moving. 

At the beginning of January Dad got new bike tires. They are some sort of composite material that is shaped into semi-solid tires. These pictures were taken after a week of his use. I found lots and lots of thorns, rocks, and glass stuck in his tires. No wonder he was getting flats nearly every day with regular tires!

The last layout is of Michelle and me right before she moved. I miss her a lot.

Omega and Dad - January Font Challenge

Omega and Dad I did for Lorene's January Font-a-Licious Challenge. We had to use the font Amapola, a nice loose loopy cursive font.

On January 11 Cyril lost two of his bottom teeth at once. It was pretty exciting for all of us.

On January 12th, Dad took the boys to the park and I trailed along later. When I saw them they were just leaving the boat park and wanted to climb the trees lining the park next to the playground. Dad put them up in the trees, they thought it was pretty neat.

Dad took Alexander and Annabelle fishing with Capt'n Bobby. They caught quite a few fish and brought some steaks and a whole fish home.


Alexander is an early admit student at HCC. Which means that when his class was cancelled Friday evening before classes started on Monday, he couldn't just sign up for another class. He did some research over the weekend and figured out what he would like to take and called his counsellor early Monday morning. His counsellor called him back and said he would be out in the am and would figure out what to do when he got back. Meanwhile one of the classes Alexander wanted take was in the am, so we hustled down to HCC and he sat in on the class. Afterward we headed to the counsellors office where Alexander convinced his counsellor of his choices and signed him up.

Hello! It's Monday morning here in beautiful rainy Oahu. The February Club-Deco kits are out for those of you who are members stop by Deco-Pages and download the kits.
