Oh where have I been?
I know...bad blogger! No recent pictures. No recent postings for that matter. You'd think I'd finally gotten a life or something equally exciting, eh?
Nah, it has just been a busy couple of weeks here at the House of Chang!
First there was Halloween. Or as my boys would say "the best Halloween EVER!" I'm not sure what prompted such a glowing review. It could be that things all went rather smoothly...from perfect weather for trick or treating, to a Halloween Bash with many of the boys' pals able to join us for a couple hours of rowdy fun.
And then there was a visit from Grandpa. It's always fun to have Grandpa visit and this time proved to be even better as I took off for the weekend and the guys had a GUYS ONLY weekend. I"m not sure what all went on while I was gone but somehow Thing Two now can use all sorts of slang to describe his elimination habits. Gee WIZ, I guess you have to take the good with the bad when you skip out on your family for an entire weekend.
Which brings me to the big event for me. Many of you know I"ve got a couple things I really enjoy. Scrapbooking is one of them. The other is hanging out on the computer. Oh there are other things too...but these are two of my favorite hobbies. Imagine what fun I had when I blended these two hobbies together for the Scrapshare retreat here in the Land of Sunshine. Several of us geek-wannabees visit a message board dedicated to scrapbooking and this past weekend, several of us who live in the same general area, got together to meet up with our imaginary friends. I had a blast and am pleased to report that none of the fellow scrapbookers were imaginary: they all had a great sense of humor and a generous spirit. I look forward to meeting up with this group again...and hope that our little gathering can continue to grow as more folks discover this group.
So, that about wraps things up here. I'd hoped to post some pictures of me with my new online pals...but in my haste I somehow deleted some files. So, instead, you're stuck with a picture of Moose Boy.
I vow to get back in the groove with more postings...as I really do like my time that I spend crafting my blog postings! I"ve missed this creative outlet!
