John trying to keep up with James. This is actually pretty representative of how life usually is for Johnny!
Like I said, hard to get this kid to stay still! Here he is with his snow cone, off to find his cousins to play with.
John and the football. He had so much fun playing with this and could always find someone willing to run around with him!
Last, but not least, here's Peter, bundled up in his blanket with dad because I put him in shorts and a short-sleeve shirt so he could match his brothers, never mind that it was pretty chilly for someone without a lot of body fat! He spent most of the day being passed from one person to another, and of course he greatly enjoyed that. I think he looks a lot like his daddy in this picture!

I've discovered why they call it Friendship bread though; not because giving it away is a sign of friendship; no, it's because after trying to pawn off the starters on everyone you know, you'll have no friends left. And here's where I've run into a bit of a problem. Each starter makes two loaves of bread, and four more starters. Out of the original batch I was given, I managed to give away ONE starter. So, now I have three starters sitting on my kitchen counter, doing their thing. Each one of those will make four more starters, and assuming I'm able to get rid of even four of them, I'll have eight starters sitting on my counter next week, each of which will make four more... I think you can probably see where this is going. (It kills me to throw them away, but I'm going to have to, either that or buy a bigger house to put them all in!) So, if anyone would like to have an Amish Friendship Bread starter, just let me know!

Here's Peter with the "wave" hairdo. :)
And his first time in the Bumbo. He wasn't too crazy about it, so we'll have to try again when he gets a little older.
The last two are my favorite from the day. The boys both love little Peter (even though we have to keep an eye on John. Apparently "gentle" doesn't mean much when you're not quite 18 months old yet!!) :)

The first was for a challenge that gives you a list of things that must be included on your page. I love these pictures of John, so it was fun to scrap them!
The second one is a picture I took of my niece Chloe for a project I made for my mom and Simon's mom for Mother's Day. [I still haven't mailed out yours Mom P (reference previous post regarding my inability to get anything out on time!), but I promise it's on its way!)] I love the way this turned out and the photo is one of my favorites of her.

Finally finished a page this morning that I've been working on all week. I just couldn't seem to translate my mental picture of what it should look like onto the computer screen. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out now.

On the up side, Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day and I was able to shop, chat with others who enjoy scrapping, and even finish a couple of pages! It was so much fun, and I'm already looking forward to Digital Scrapbooking Day in November.
(I just knocked a whole cup of water off the desk, luckily it missed the computer, but it seems like a fitting end to a long day! The boys were fussy, John was sick, and I still feel terrible. I sound like a bullfrog :( Oh well, I'm sure a good night's sleep will work wonders! )
I'll exit on a positive note: the layout I finished tonight for a Snap & Scrap challenge:
