christmas is less than 60 days away and we haven't put a penny back for our children. D being out of work topped with our poor spending choices in the last year has left us fighting to stay above the water. we've been reading a book by dave ramsey called the total money makeover. i can really see this concept working.
i pray we stay on track and don't lose focus in a few months.
we're going to be working the envie system which means no more credit/debit cards to be used!
here's a couple of pics i took while we were in the car today.

Take care of the kids
play with them
give 'em naps
That's pretty much it.
Cam slept beautifully last night.. til 6:45 this morning!
*insert shocked smiley face here*
Here's a layout I created using the My Favorite Memories October kit.
I also used a transparency from Transparent touches & Tags.
Totally love those AC Thickers!

30 minutes. Ughhh... really long day here in the Crowe household. Bad Karma must be making it's rounds... won't go into details, but it just stinks.
We took Katelyn to the roller rink to try out her new inlines she got for her birthday. We were there about an hour, she doesn't really like the skates yet because their not broke in. I told her, "Hey, that's your job... to break 'em in!" ;) Here are some pics from yesterday.
I love Cam's expression in the first one.. "oooooooooh" ;)
Sam running toward the play place... she loves playing in there, but it's expensive at $4 *yikes*
Oh yeah.. Katelyn won a free small soft drink while she was there skating... she was so happy for that since we weren't springing for snacks there!! LOL

Well hopefully the link above will work for you.. if not my user name is Darln Leah and my password to get in is.... well, you didn't think I would tell you?!
I think I just may be plastering this awesome Crop tag with every other entry in my blog. TTT (Transparent Touches & Tags) is one heck of a kit club. I attended their first ever online crop back in July or August and had a blast. Tons of fun, challenges, chatting, prizes, games. You should really clear your weekend. The DT does an amazing job hosting this, as does the owner Monica. These girls rock the kits over there! I can't wait til I can actually join... but that will be awhile yet since Doug and I are rockin the TMM (total money makeover).
