Here's what life looks like in KS between January 1-15. For the Project 365 mentioned in Creating Keepsakes magazine. I'm doing simple digital layouts so far. I may jazz them up more as the year goes on, if I keep with it. I've gotten in the habit of using my camera regularly, so that should not be the problem. I hope to print this book off at Shutterfly at the end of the year and viola 2008 has been scrapbooked!

And a thank you to Mark and Lugene for the fun sweatshirts and games that came our way. I have not photographed us playing all our new games but winter is young yet! This one is hungry allegators or something like that. They got quite a kick out of it! Mesmorizing!

Thought I would share a few more rocket launch photos before I quit. We've had some lovely KS winter days (between 50-60 F go figure!), but it has been so windy the rockets would be in NE or OK before they hit ground. One of these days we will go to Uncle Bill and Aunt Paula's for a group launch. Bill had to get some for them too! BOYS!
My mom got Alan a remote control plane but it was disappointing, we hope to get some replacement parts and on a completely non windy day try it again!

Project 365 Challenge
Both my Creating Keepsakes magazine and my fav scrapbook board Scrapbook.com are challenging us to try at 365 challenge: a photo a day scrapbooked in weeks, so at the end of the year you have a year in review album done! Ha Ha what are the chances I can keep up with that? Well it has occured to me to try or at least get started. So far here are my pic photos from 1/1 til today:

Happy New Year!
As I was sitting alone with my thoughts this morning, I could not help but realize they were rather blue. I don't care to go into details here, but as I sat down to work on my read through the Bible in a year, I felt empty inside. Tried to pray and felt empty inside and came down and read my online "Daily Bread" devotional and got smacked between the eyes:
Regular intake of God’s Word is a worthy practice, but it’s not an end in itself. The prophet Ezekiel spoke to an audience who loved to listen but refused to act. The Lord said to Ezekiel: “Indeed you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not do them” (33:32).

He is in fact speaking to those who plan to read the Bible through in a year.
Don't just read it, Live it! David MacCasland. Evidently I needed some heart surgery before I got to working on my goal! BTW: isn't our God awesome?!!!!!
Happy New Year!
