It's been months! And I realize that I haven't missed a thing about blogging. I just don't think it's my thing. Sooo, as for right now, in my life, blogging will not be a priority. I post just about everything on Facebook that is going on with the Sherman' if you wanna keep up with our family...come find me there.
Maybe I will change my mind in the future.
We'll see...

Gosh! Has it really already been two weeks!? I just don't know where the time goes by faster and faster every single day!
Well...we have had lots going around these parts. We have something really cool that we are doing at our church this week. It's called The Tabernacle Experience. The guys (including my super awesome Honey) put it up at our church on Friday and it opened on Saturday. Derek and I had the first slot volunteering Sat morning...and it was almost cooler watching people go through it than going through myself.
Then Sunday, was the annual kids program at church. Corbin did soooo great! He had a line and a solo part, also. I was so proud of him!! (I have pics, but haven't downloaded them to my computer yet)
And our choir is also working on The Odes Project to finish off the Tabernacle Ex on Sunday night. I am making 300 programs for this...and it is A LOT of work. More than I had anticipated. I'm anal and a perfectionist, so I'm not sure I can physically let anyone help me...but it probably wouldn't be a bad idea. We'll see.

The boys and Remi and I just got back from a walk and playing at the school playground. The weather is SOOO awesome. There were some gross buggies landing on me...but other than that we had fun. Corbin rode his bike. He is getting better and better. Bryson is starting to ride his little bike, too. He still needs some work :)

We had a really great Easter, too! Seems like it was months ago...

And I last but not least...Corbin had a program at school a few weeks ago. He had to dress in something I made him a costume...a bag of green jellybeans. Turned out pretty good!! :D

Ok...that's all for now!
Hope your week is going great!

Good Morning!!!
I am thrilled to be apart of a BLOG HOP this morning for the ONE YEAR Anniversary over at Triple the Sketch. I can't believe it's already been a year...time flies!! Hope you are getting a lot of inspiration this morning from all of the TTS girls.
This is the first blog hop I have ever been a part it is pretty exciting! (I think!!)
Hopefully you have arrived from Elizabeth's blog...(You should be starting your hop at the Triple the Sketch blog. If you did not start there, please return to the TTS blog so that you don’t miss any of the fun!)

Ok, so we were to pick one of our favorite sketches from the past year and my favorite is #14. (It was actually REALLY hard to choose one!!)

Here is what I originally did with this of my favorite LOs, from a really great day!!

I think this sketch is REALLY flexible for any size LO, cards or anything else your heart desires!! :) On this LO, I opted not to do the scallops on the whole page and just added a small, scalloped, chipboard frame to mimic the scallop edge. (click on images to enlarge)

Not only can you win a RAK at TTS, but you can also leave a comment here and be eligible for MY RAK:

(Note: There is a missing sticker at the bottom...where the arrow are pointing. Just wanted to let you know :D)

To be eligible for the TTS RAK: Continue on to Gloria's blog. Thanks for playing along!!
Good Luck!!!

Whew! Back and trying to get everything back to normal! If that's possible.
Lots of unpacking, laundry, etc., etc....And I have the urge to organize things. Spring cleaning, I guess. Usually I get overwhelmed and give up...but I'm just taking one "section" at a time and so far it is going great! I love getting my house orgainzed.
We are also making some changes with our routine. Last night we started doing family devotionals. It was so cute to hear Bryson's answers to the questions and I was really impressed with Corbin's knowledge of the Bible and scriptures. I guess he really does pay attention in Sunday School and AWANAS! We picked out the book at Mardel's a few weeks ago and we also picked up some chore charts for the boys. They each picked out stickers to put on each week. We've added some chores to Corbin's list and he's been forgetting (or maybe just slacking?), so we thought a chore list would help him out. He really wasn't excited about it at all! HA! And we want Bryson to start being more responsible for his room. He is actually REALLY good with doing his "chores" and helping out with ANYTHING we ask him to. I hope that doesn't go away...but it probably will...Oh well, I'll just enjoy it while I can :D
(WARNING!! Lots of pics comin' up!!!!!!)
We had a really great Spring Break. We drove down to Austin on Saturday, leaving some SNOW behind us and heading to a breezy, sunny Austin. The weather was SUPER! Corbin was going to be spending the week with his NaNa (Derek's mom) and Bryson would be with us. They both enjoyed their time away from each other and being the only child! I took lots of pics...but Corbin will not be in any of them b/c he wasn't with us...kinda bittersweet. We missed him, but he had a really great time.
I didn't take pics of EVERYTHING we did...Derek took him swimming twice and we went to Austin Park and Pizza the first few days. Tuesday we went to Sea World. B had a GREAT time. He loved everything, really. (pics are kinda big...but you can click on them to take a closer look-see)

We started off with the dolphins...

He didn't want to touch them, but did want to feed them. Unfortunately, the line was ricidulously long (as usual) to get fish, so he didn't get to feed them.
And can I just say that it is not cheap to go to Sea World, and it was PACKED! No signs of recession in Austin/San Antonio...
Ok...sorry...just wanted to add my random thought there...
Next we headed to see Shamu and other Shamu's (? is Shamu still alive or are these his babies/friends?)...He wasn't as impressed with Shamu as I thought he would be, but he enjoyed himself here, also...

Then we headed to see sharks and other random fish...
Here are some really huge scallops (is that right, that have the pearl inside)...well, whatever they are...

other fish and sting rays...

sharks (it was hard to get a good pic...VERY dark room and they were FAST!)

blurry piranha

grody eels (click on it, I dare'll have nightmares!) and other stuff...

's late and I can't think of what the heck this is called....:P

And last but not least...and my VERRRRRRY favorite...the penguins...

I want one!!!

Ok...that's all for now...Popsicle making and train riding next!!

Just thought I'd let you know we're taking the week off for Spring Break. I am not being a slacker again...just taking time off with the fam. I'll have A LOT to blog about at the end of the week :)

Happy Spring Break!!

Ok, soooo....I guess I'm ready to get back into this thing. I just needed a break! Just feeling the pressure of...well, I don't know...just pressure!! AND I really started this to keep relatives up to date who live far away...and most of them don't even visit. So, I was kinda thinking "What's the point?"
I changed my mind...or attitude...or whatever...
I told you...I had the FUNK!!!
I'm not gonna try to catch you up on the last month and a half...I'll just go with the last few weeks.
Last week I went and visited my old/good friend Jessica (AKA...JJ). She birthed a little teeny baby girl about 4 weeks ago and I had to meet her!! She is the first of my good friends to have a baby. Can you believe that?? Her name is Edie and she is the cutest thing. All she did was eat, sleep, poop...of course, and one other thing...
she made this "now what?" face...It's like her little brain is thinking "Is this it?? REALLY??"

And I'm pretty sure she was DONE with me taking pictures of her...but who can resist this??

not me...
Cash either...

I had a GREAT time visiting...oh, they live in Boulder, CO...the weather was so beautiful! Can't wait to go back.

I bought a few things for the boys to paint for Easter. Bryson was with me at Hobby Lobby...he picked out a bunny for himself and a cross for Corbin. And we bought some very Eastery paints

He loaded like 90 coats of paint on that poor little bunny...I wasn't sure if it would EVER dry.

But it did and he asked if could paint on it more the next day! HA! I told him it looked perfect just the way it was.
And Corbin actually took some time with his cross and it turned out great, also!

I think B enjoyed it A LOT...I see more painting in the near future! :)

Well, I guess that is all for tonight.
Glad to be back!!

Just wanted to say that I have been on a bloggy hiatus. Lots going on in this world of mine and blogging didn't rank too high on my list. BUT...we rec'd some good news today and I'm feeling somewhat rejuvinated. You know...I kinda had "the funk", but I think it has subsided. I have lots to post...lots to catch up on...soon, I'll be back to my blogginess soon.

It is SOOO cold today! And that really is not a complaint. I enjoy the cold weather. It gives me a good reason to stay home!:)
I did venture out yesterday and today to try and get some pics of the cute little snowflakes. I love them....sooooo much. I wish I could put it in a bottle or something and put it on a shelf...without them melting, obviously. Just having the perfect little snowflake fall on your shirt is one of my favorite things in the world. I hate that it melts away into my clothing in a matter of seconds! SAD!
Ok, so yesterday it was kinda spitting these teeny tiny balls of snow...

But today...we had some genuine, one of a kind flakes falling from the heavens! It was beautiful...

We didn't really get much accumulation...but it is VERY frigid out there.

Yesterday, I went to put Bryson down for his nap...and he was fast his closet! So sweet...I ran to get my camera...

I don't have anything creative to share today. I'm still cleaning and organizing everything. I am making progress, but still have a LONG way to go! Hopefully I will finish this week!! I'll share before and after pics when I'm done. *gulp*

I need to give a shout out to some life savers...

These guys were there for me this week BIG TIME!! Couldn't have made it without you! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

And a shout out to my Honey who brought me these beauties...some get well flowers...

Thankfully the family is MUCH better and done with that ridiculous stomach bug. Now I am a little behind on my motherly duties and should really be doing that instead of blogging on my computer :D

Anyone out there excited about the Super Bowl...Who are you rootin' for?? I'm rootin' for the Cardinals...the underdog. Usually I root for the opposite of my husband just to annoy him, but this year we are actually going for the same team.
D is re-starting FCA in our area and is doing a SuperBowl party. AND it also happens to be C's 10th birthday. So we have a lot to get prepared for next Sunday. AND that is also when our new pastor will be here. It's a pretty big day! I'm excited.

I think today I am going to attempt to make a dent in my disastrous thing called a scraproom. I took pictures of it, but I don't think I'm ready to post them yet. It's pretty ugly.

I'm waiting on a package from Sephora today, too. They always send you free samples with your orders and this time I get some extra samples...So, that's always fun!! I hope it gets here today!!!!!!

Man, I am quite the rambler today...

Ok, here is my LO from Triple the Sketch this week. Not one of my favorite, and for some reason I couldn't get a good picture...but I love the pictures of family game night, so that's all that matters ;)

Last thing...if you are needing something to make you feel miserable, I mean to satisfy your chocolate desires...I made these last week and they are UH-MAZING!!! (Derek took them on his ski trip and they were a huge hit!!) And I don't even care for chocolate all that much. They are super easy to make! YUMMMMMMM!!!!!! (BTW, Bakerella is also having a giveaway for a Wii on her blog, if you haven't been there yet, it ends tonight)

Hope your weekend is going wonderfully!!
