I have to share these cute layout...

I know for me... it's hard to believe Christmas is so soon. I wanted to share these layouts by Jennifer Haggerty. She used my line Candy Cane lane and the Siloquette machine. You can see my enamel shapers, brads, papers and die cuts. I loved the photo too!

This is my new collection- Nine & Co. I am loving the wood die cut OWL in the line. This is the papers, die cuts and brads, die cut wood and chipboard. I am such a fan of Jennifer's work. I love the stitching on her projects. Love the siloquette too!

Thanks Jennifer for sharing your amazing projects! I LOVE documenting life.
This weekend we went to Taylor's house. It was on Sunday. We met to celebrate Zach's 17th birthday.  It was at night so my photos are not the best- BUT they are... because they
are special to me. I am grateful for this time. 

Our family is united in LOVE and we talked about missing dad. Ty can't leave the house and I honestly HATED to leave him. I knew that I must keep going and be there for Zach's celebration. It is hard when my best friend and the dad of our family is not in these photos. I am thankful for Taylor and Travis making an amazing dinner for us. They just wanted us to show up.
We had tater tot casserole, raspberry salad, score cake, parmesan rolls and it was simply a "home" meal. Their home is full of love and very welcoming.

We played games... the girls danced for us. Yes, we get a little crazy and we shared many laughs. We loved having Kenadee with us. She is Zach's special friend. Plus, I have Jaxon (Travis's son) now and he is such a sweet and funny kid. 

I took lots of photos. I printed the photos out yesterday to send to McKay. I want her to feel like she is still very much apart of the family. It's easy since I just print from my printer at home. I try to send her photos each week.

I really just needed my kids this weekend. We sat around and talked, laughed and cried. Our family has had many changes with the kids on mission and Ty's battle with cancer. My heart is always sensitive and just grateful for the little things. I don't look at things the same way. I don't want to take ONE DAY for granted.  

I don't want to miss an opportunity to spend time with my family. I had a meeting yesterday at my office employees. I have decided to work more from home so I can be with Tyler more. I have arranged my schedule to come in the morning and be home by early afternoon. I have been struggling with my business growing so fast and I knew I could find more balance and happiness if I was home with Ty more. I am blessed that I can design from home. I think with so much growth I felt I had to oversee everything. I realized for me and right now... I need to be home more.  So I went home early yesterday and loved Ty's reaction to me being home so early.  I did kit for Australia. Ty was on the couch right by me and I felt PEACE. I knew I had made the right decision. I have to trust my team at work to support me now more than ever. I want you each to know that my family more than
ever is thankful for EACH of you. We feel your prayers and your support. I am not going to lie and say it's not tough.

I feel the weight on my shoulders. I also feel like angels are right by me. I feel God so strong in our home. I feel hope and I feel like a WARRIOR for my husband. I am simply trying the best I can. I guess that is all that I can do.

You, Ty and your family are the first on my prayer list every night.
Stay strong. Being home even if it just in the afternoons is
good for you and TY. Good employees continue on and do
not need constant micro managing. You hired good employees
and they will come through for you. God Bless!
