:)

Talked to lots of family on the phone today. I called Nana so early this morning (at 7am) that she thought something was wrong! Funny, cuz I just couldn't sleep and figured her and Nano would for sure be awake. Sounds like they are doing well, miss yoU!

Also chatted for a while with Chaya. Practically my 2nd mother . . . gosh I miss her and those kids - not to mention Uncle Mike who is always giving me tidbits of wisdom. This is my first summer not helping out at the Francis house. I must admit I miss the hecticness, the football games, the tennis and golf at the country clubs, and every once in a while movie and popcorn on a rainy day. If any of the Francis clan is reading...I miss you guys!

Mom and Dad are planning a trip down to Texas soon....I'm excited about that. Definitely something to look forward to. Dad hasn't been to Texas since the weekend I moved in back in the beginning of the year.

That's why today was nice.....
Another Sunday afternoon spent scrapbooking today. I got tons done while Steve took his daily nap.

There are lots of layouts below, I decided to share them all with you.
Remember, you can click on the photos to see a larger view.
Being able to scrapbook family pictures reminds me of the events like Peter's football games (see below), and Nano's birthday!

Well, no more waiting, here are my newest layouts...
I'm about 1 year behind chronologically in scrapbooking. So...these layouts here are from one weekend in August last year up at the trailer at Pearl Lake with my mom and dad and little people:



Another page with KI Memories Lola/Riley product. This is some of my favorite stuff in the past couple months...


Just a great picture of Nana and Nano (which is pretty hard to come by these days). Notice my fun title, "mi familia italiana"


THese pages here are from Nano's 73rd Birthday last year:
(Scrapbooking with paper I have designed is sooo much fun by the way ;)


Here's a page listing some of nano's favorite things at 73 years old...


Here's a layout with some pictures from Peter's 7th grade Chiefs season last year...


And....Halloween last year....Baby Carson's 1st Halloween/Pumpkin Carving...


Lastly, a layout of little "Smokey" from last year when Dan first bought him. So cute!!!!
