Hey Everyone

hey everyone!! hope you are all doing well!! :)

Christmas was great!! Kason made out like a bandit and Logan and I got tons of things we are very excited and grateful for!

Not too much going on here. Tonight we are heading over to Chris and Kelly's house for a party and spending the night at Logan's brother's house then logan is off to play football in the morning. Kason will be bundled up and snug in his carseat as i will be in my jacket reading my book.

Speaking about books... my sister has been wanting me to read the Twilight Series for quiet some time and finally i finished my other book so i was able to read it. The first book is AMAZING!!! i read it in two days!! almost 500 pages!!! i LOVE IT!! i went out and bought the second one- New Moon, and the third one Eclispe. im already addicted!! :)

well here are some pictures for you from us!

Yes we are ALIVE! :)

sorry it has been FOREVER!!! life has just gotten super BUSY!!

Kason is doing well. He is growing so much!! he is starting to laugh and loves to smile all the time. he squeals and makes little noises. LOVES to stick out his little tounge! :) he is such a great joy we are so blessed to have him in our lives.

I am doing well. We are getting our apartment finally unpacked. I have my scrapbook stuff almost all organized and we got a new desk/table for our computer and my scrapbooking! YAY!!!

Only cried for a minute and then was just fine!!Me and Kason at two months!Our sleepy head. he loves that binky!!Kason at two monthsHe is always so alert i love it.Kason and Hannah asleep after going out to lunch one day. he is sure catching up to her and she is 6months older! lolLogan is one proud Papa. He has to show off that Kason is holding his own bottle. Okay this isnt a normal thing, but he does do it every once in a while, and will hold it the entire time he eats.Kason passed out on Grandma and Grandpa Chapells couch. he looks so comfy!

its been a while sorry. we are doing well. Just enjoying Kason's baby days. i love that he is small and cuddley but i know that soon he will be all over the place causing mayham. lol anywho.. not too much going on. Kason went swimming for the first time lastnight at the YMCA here in town, he LOVED it. all calm and relaxed. we went with Adam and Carrie and Brinnon. I will have pictures up soon i have to develop them. i used a waterproof disposable camera.

once upon a design

my sister, Amy Grendell, has just started a new bussiness with a friend and its awesome. Have you guys heard or seen those vinal lettering thingy's??? they are awesome because you can make crafts with them, signs, etc. but what i think is awesome is that they can go straight on your wall and if you like us and rent an apartment you have PLAIN white walls. Well with the vinal designs you can decorate your walls and when you move out, they peel right off!! how awesome? Also they are having a drawing for a free bird doodle, gotta check it out.
website---- ---- so neat. below are some examples of their work.
how cute are these birds?? getting some for Kason's room!!there is an example of one in her house.

yup getting these Too!
example of them on a car.these would be awesome on a board to make a sign.
you can custom order. Pick colors, sizes etc.

alot to think about.

so after debating, thinking, and discussing with Logan I have decided to stop designing digital scrapbooking products. It was fun, but then it became like a chore to me. I wasn't doing it because it was FUN to, i was now doing it because i felt like i had to. I was too worried about deadlines, and etc. that it just wasnt what i wanted to do anymore. so i have offically closed down my stores, cancled my designing blog.
One major reason i decided to do this was Family. With Kason here i have really thought about my life. About what is really important. I have taken so much for granted in my life. The main thing is Family. How important they are in ones life. I have grown up with a large family, i married into a large family, and we plan to one day have a large family of our own. I dont want to hussel and bussel of everyday life to take away the important little moments in everyday life, examples; cuddle time, reading books to children, baking because you like too, scrapbooking to keep memories alive, watching a movie with your hubby and baby, taking walks with your pup, talking to your hubby about nonsense, and just laying in bed on a weekend morning and just being relaxed.
So now i want to make sure i do those things, and ENJOY them. I want to weed out the "wants" in my life and make sure that the "needs" of myself and those around me are fulfilled first.

i can't believe that our little man is already 3 WEEKS! insane!! i was taking his pictures because he has the cutest little onsie on, and realized that he is 3 weeks old. oh man! i love every minute of it. being a mom is something unexplainable. i love cuddleing with him, kissin him, huggin him, even waking up in the middle of the night and feeding him, because that makes me his momma!! here are some pictures from today. I made the onsie using Tia Bennett's robot doodles (up at 2peas) and i hand stitched it on the shirt.
this is a classic Kason face, and i LOVE it. he makes it ALL the time!

Hello Mr. Cutie

okay i know know every mother says they have the cutest kid, but just look at Kason!Not alot going on. Just watching movies and getting my computer all organized. Got all my files from my parents computer and now uploading them all unto ours. Ug it takes forever! then i am going to re-organize everything so its much cleaner and easier to navigate through when scrapbooking and designing.
Hope everyone is having a great day. Windy here. Suppose to have power outages everywhere. Hope we skip that!
