Cheerleading season is upon us......

Well my DD just got done with football cheerleading and is now headed into the All Star season. I love All Star Cheer the competitions are so much fun and the girls are getting so good! I love to see all the girls in their uniforms and glitter makeup, they all look so awesome! I have volunteered to be assistant coach this year. DD is in the youth group Level 1. Last year they took state championship! I am so proud of her, its like she is a natural born cheerleader. DD has been working on her solo routine for the past 2 months...she is so dedicated! We are working on fundraisers to get the squad new jackets this year, they are so excited! Pizza Hut is going to help us out this year with a tip night for the girls. It is where they wait tables and serve pizza and then they get all tips collected. We are also going to do a bake sale and a garage sale. We have 11 girls on our squad, but I wish we could get one more girl to sign up to complete the squad. With 12 girls we will beable to do 3 lift stunts, but right now we are only allow 2 lifts.

Here are a couple of new LOs I have finished. The first is DD's football cheer squad competition 2007. This is the first year we were able to host the competition right here in Alpena! The second LO is the Digi Dares #56. Oh, I almost forgot we found out yesterday that my cousin is having a baby girl, how exciting! We have all boys in the family except for DD. She is due February 22, 2008 I can't wait!

Journaling reads:
I look at the girl in the mirror
and I see someone beautiful
a precious gem a reflection of beauty
I look into my own blue eyes
and I see strength
where there's strength there's beauty
I look at the girl in the mirror
and I see who I used to be
but then I see how I've changed
I see how much I've grown
how much I've matured
how I grew more confidence
how I'm no longer afraid
to look at the girl in the mirror
I look at the girl in the mirror
in my eyes my reflection shows no less
than pure perfection I look at the girl
in the mirror and I'm proud of what I've become.

Keeping in touch with old friends...

I got an email 2 days ago from my very best friend, whom I have not seen in over 10 yrs. We live miles and miles apart, but we keep in touch through postal mail and emails. She sends me pics of her children and I send her pics of mine. I think it is so cool we still touch base with eachother. She sent me this pic of her daughter and I just could not resist doing a LO of her, she is so adorable!

I didn't deserve your attention. No matter what I did you always showed me kindness and love. Growning up I never realized what it takes to be a parent, but now being one myself I
know the suffering, the pain, and the heartache you went through. I am greatful to the both of you for showing me the right path in life to choose. You taught me selfconfidence and
always to believe in myself. You taught me right from wrong and understanding. You made me the person I am today. I just hope I will beable to do the same for my shildren.
I love you both with all my heart. Your loving daughter, Jennifer Lynn

Just one of those days....

Ever have one of those days where you just feel like crawling in a dark hole all by yourself and crying til there is no tomorrow? Well that is me today, I have no idea why I feel this way I just do. And to top it all off I caught a cold in the Summer time! I have no idea how I caught a cold in such warm weather. I hope my kids don't catch it, because they all start school on the 4th and we don't want anyone sick...(to stay home with mom!). Oh my goodness school sure did sneak up fast this year, I am so not ready. Bailey my son needs so much to take to school and he is in 1st grade. I ask myself what the heck do the school's provide? Nothing! He even has to bring in paper to share with the class! Paper? I remember being in school and all we had to start the year with is glue sticks and pencils! What will the schools ask for next!

Here is a LO I started on last night and finished up this morning. I love doing LOs of my daughter, her pictures always amaze me and also I have so many of them, because she loves the camera.

I used a template I found on Andrea's Blog Isn't it awesome, I love it.

Journaling reads:
My beautiful daughter, love of my heart,
I hope that you know you're wonderful and smart.
I cherish you dearly for the person you are
You have passion and caring that will carry you far.
I'm so blessed that you're my daughter
Let me tell you how I feel:
The deep affection I have for you
Is honest, true and real.
You turned out even better
Than I often dreamed you'd be;
You're more than I had hoped for;
You're a sweet reward to me
You grew up to be a daughter
Full of wisdom, warmth and love,
A good and fine role model,
from the heavens up above.
I couldn't be any prouder
Than I am today of you;
You're my daughter and my friend,
And a blessing in every way.
You have my love forever;
I adored you from the start;
It's a privilege to be your mother,
Dear daughter of my heart.

My first paper LO in months........and a new camera!

I was looking at my scrap room and I said to myself, Jen, you have so many supplies and paper and they are just sitting there collecting dust and going to waste do something!! So I did. I actually sat down and did a paper LO, which I have not done in over 6 months! Yup, just like riding a bike, it came together fast and it was fun. Keep in mind I will never give up my digi, but it was nice to scrap with the feeling of texture in my hands. Here is my LO, I have been wanting to scrap these pictures of my nephew for awhile now and finally done.

And, new camera! I am so stoked. I never had a digital camera before, always took pictures and scanned them in to my computer. This is so much easier and the pictures look awesome! I will upload some pictures later today, but for now I will show you my camera. Here it is, my Canon Power shot A530 with 5.0 mega pixels and 4x optical zoom!!!!!!! I also got this really cool, handy, dandy camera tote with mini camera case. It's the Swiss Gear, the scope 2 piece camera set.
