Another LO

I was inspired by a LO on "The Story Matters" called "Home Is Where He Is". My LO looks nothing like hers, but I loved the title and the colors so this is my own version. I still need to do the journaling, but that will probably be kind of personal so I took the pic before. I believe this puts me at #84. I don't know if I'll get any more scrapping done over the weekend. Tomorrow is Miguel's day off and we will do our grocery shopping and running around. We had plans to take the kids to movies, but Lij decided to stay at his dad's. I talked to his dad and told him that since he asked him that he could stay this weekend, but every weekend after this, he is coming home whether he wants to or not. It's not up for discussion. Since I don't see him all week, I think it's important that he comes home for the weekend for family time since it's so limited right now. So, we will probably still take Mikey to see the movie and I want to go to Hobby Lobby to look for some more beads. I "might" go by M's because there are some specific color beads I want and the last time I was there, I noticed that they have a much bigger selection that Hobby Lobby. Other than that, we will just relax at home.
Just a note to myself...this afternoon, my mom was asleep on one of the couches in the livingroom and Mikey went and lay on top of her and fell asleep. I was cleaning up in the kitchen and when I was done, I came in and found him there. They looked so comfy and peaceful...made me sleepy so I took a nap too! LOL As I was laying there looking at them before I dozed off, I felt very blessed and thankful for having my mom and Mikey and this house even if it's not our nice, new house that we had to leave behind. That was just a house...and even though I loved all the space, I was always there alone with the one to talk to and Miguel was always at work. This feels more like home to me than that house ever did :) Just want to remember that moment.

Oh, that is so sweet about Mikey falling asleep on your mom! Sounds like a very sweet moment!

I'm sorry you don't get to have Elijah for the weekend. I agree you need to make sure he comes home the rest of the time. He needs to spend time with you all.

Enjoy your day today! The kids and I are heading out in a little bit too. Maybe I'll stop in at HL for some stickers! :D

What a cute little nap story...I hope you took a picture of them all snuggled up together?! What a great layout that could be! And I love your layout...very classy!
