Digital Scapbooking

So lately I have been checking out digital scrapbooking. It looks like fun without all the different inks and stuff you would have to do with regular scrapbooking.

I haven't started anything... but hopefully in the next few weeks I will be able to show some things. So if you don't check this out often... come back the end of October and hopefully there will be something to show you (who knows I might even get one done faster.. we shall see).

On top of that... questions:
Do you scrapbook? If so.. I so need help on where to start! I have photoshop... I can take pictures... now it is just getting them on a page.
Also right now I don't really have any money to spend... so any tips there would be great!

Oh... my grandpa is doing well! I should call him and see if he needs anything. And yes it was his lower back that worked on.

Thanks Marcia

The girls and I went to the zoo yesterday. We went with Lona and Evelyn and had a great time! I actually took my camera with me... and you would think I took a ton of pictures. If you did you guessed wrong. I had the attention to do so but with it being a little cold and than different ones falling asleep. This is the only picture I actually took:

Although I really like it... it isn't my children. So we will have to make another trip or share some from a different time.

After the zoo we decided to go and see if we could find any costumes. And sure enough we did find something... for Maylee anyway. She is going to be a doctor, she picked it out herself. And Mia has decided on yet another thing.. a butterfly. Now off to find butterfly wings (I did hear some wonderful people at church say they have some... so I guess shopping to there house we go).

Later on Lona and I ended up at the church to play volleyball. I really need to space out my exercise throughout the week. Doing it all in one day totally wears me out! So my goal is to get more exercise in!

Enjoy my zoo picture! Now off to go to the hospital to see my grandpa who had surgery today. He said it should be an in and out thing but we will see when i get there. (if my brain is working correctly he has to do with his back- so GET WELL SOON GRANDPA!)

A picture

Well of course I have to add something for today.

A picture of Mike and I.. and it was just taken today! (we haven't had a pic done in a while so it was nice to do so without the girls. I was actually taking a friends family picture and had them take this one of us so I could have it.
Now off to bed!

Happy Weekend!

Just wanted to wish everybody a happy weekend! Especially for those in Nebraska as it will be really nice out, so enjoy the weather!

Having children

So having children is something I have always wanted. I have been babysitting since I was 10 (yeah that is way to young, no way in the world is a 10 year old going to watch my babies right now). I even watched a newly born one that young. I totally loved it though and am glad I was trusted way back than (ok so I am not that old.. but really that was 16 years ago). And looking back on kids I watch.. they are either graduated or going to soon so there has been some time since I started babysitting. But now I really only watch my 2 girls (and this is my far the greatest job I have ever had).

As parents it is our responsibility to care for our children. Being at home full time I have come to love and learn more from them. It was be way cool if there was book out there that told you exactly what to do... but they don't. Which I am glad for, I (well my husband and I) get to make the choices I want for my children. As I have started looking around, we are all made so different that no one book would help that much.

Anyway no need to tell you all stuff you probably already now and bore you to death.

I LOVE being home with my GIRLS!!!

So for today: remember to take pictures of all moments (and if you are like me.. make sure you get them printed out too!)

It is on the right side... so go and click which desribes you.

Thanks for you time!

So today was so much like a Monday I (Marcia) was almost confused. Mondays normally don't go anything like planned and well lets just say today was at least like that. But I did get the dishes done (yeah for me!) and have kept up for a while now. I could have done laundry (what day of the week can't you do laundry)? But decided I didn't feel like folding so that is on hold until tomorrow afternoon (The girls and I are going to the Omaha children's museum in the morning).

It is just crazy how life can go so fast sometimes! One day it is Sunday and the next it is Wednesday... so were did the rest of it go? I mean seriously days just don't fall off the calender. So I am hoping they find there way back there for the week to come otherwise I have a feeling next week won't be any better! Or how about a whole year just walks off the calender... I did have two babies.. now they are 4-1/2 and 2-1/2? Time flies that is for sure!

So my motto: "Enjoy what you have today because you might not have it tomorrow"

You never really know what will happen! So really take each day at a time.

One of my favorite quotes: "Faith makes things possible not easy" author unknown

Ok so I have posted once a day now.. I won't expect that but you never know. I might come up with something to say. But if I start getting boring.. I will know to slow down.

So leave a comment so I know you have stopped in. And you never know I might put you down on my "friend blog" list. (if that is a good thing or not I do not know).

Oh one last thing. How do you like my header? Pretty cool ... I did it all by myself. Watch for it to change from time to time now that I know what I am doing.

Mia and Maylee

Ok I just couldn't add one child and not the other. But I have to run to scouts now... so I better finish this later.

Maylee my baby

This Maylee! I took these while taking pictures of Katie B. for her junior year. I might come back and change it out but for how these will have to do. She has a thing about grabing the camera.... she is just funny like that. Anyway I wanted to post a picture to make sure I knew how. So this is it for now!

Tarver News

Ok I started a blog a while back.. but that was for photography and than I didn't stick with it. Than I decided last week I was going to start one monday. Oh and I will be the first to say I am not in english so forget any grammer errors.

So a little about us...

Mia is 4-1/2 now. She loves everything about life. She is so independent and wants to do everything her (how fun for me... because I end up doing it half the time when she realizes she can't). She is preschool age but for now I just started working with her at home. She likes to have a mommy teacher! She even pretends she is the mommy teacher when she is playing school with Maylee. She is growing like a weed and at least once a day she reminds me that she is almost as tall as me (ok I am short.. but girl you have time before that happens).

Maylee is 2-1/2. And lets just say she acts like it too. She thinks everybody needs to stop for her at all times. She is having a hard time realizing we don't do that and never did. She likes to be the youngest and would like to stay that way for a while. (she gets jealous if I hold somebody elses baby). She does her hardest to pick on her big sister all day long. Ok it isn't that bad but boy it feels that way at times. They do get a long great! And are so cute with each other.

Mike is working for his dad. He will start school in January. He will be going to UNL to get a bachelors degree in Chemistry. And from there we aren't for sure yet. He is excited to be able to go back to school though. So we will offically be college students... which I hope is a good thing. His calling is teaching adult sunday school every other week. He does a good job and I think he enjoys enjoy.

Ok for me... ummm. I am a stay at home mom now (that started in Feb). I love it! I get to sleep in on some days so that is nice. I am a cub scout leader for my calling. I have the 8 year olds (wolfs). I go into church every tuesday night for activites. I hope to start my photography business also by January.

So that is our family for now. Oh we are also selling our house. So if you know anybody that wants to live in Ceresco... it can be yours!

Now to figure out how to post pictures and I will start sharing some of the girls. And if you are lucky some of the whole family!
