Three days into Santiago's week off from school and we've been enjoying our time together. I thought he was going to be incredibly restless and beg to play computer games and/or watch cartoons all day. Instead he's been helpful when I've done chores, well-behaved when we've run errands, and we've had the opportunity to play some games & puzzles that we can't usually do when Paolina is home because she's still too small to play them. Of course he has spent some time playing his beloved Minecraft and also gone over to the neighbor's house to play, which I have been thankful for. I really do need about an hour or so of quiet per day or I'm just completely on edge. So I'm taking one of these rare quiet moments to post this layout that I did this past weekend using a sketch from Sketchabilities, one of my all time favorite sketch blogs. Here's the sketch I had to work with...
And here's my take on it...
I used this adorable photo of my boys napping on a Sunday afternoon a few months ago. It's funny how I sometimes don't notice minor things about my layouts until I'm staring at it on the computer screen. I'm just now realizing I didn't put a date on it....hope I remember to do that before putting it away in it's album!

Everything on this page (except for the background paper obviously) is scraps and other old miscellaneous bits & pieces. I love being able to do that! Anyhow, thanks so much for looking and have a happy Thanksgiving!
