*{Little Things add up to be Big Things}*

I keep reminding Paddy and Mack...that while we aren't always able to do all the things they want to do...that all the little things we do together each day will one day mean more then they realize. All the little things that they take for granted without realizing...they will one day be remembered with a smile. In the stories that they tell to their kidlets...or simply calling me and telling me how they were laughing at the pictures they're looking through and remembering. 

I know they don't see it now, but the sacrifices Karl and I have made for them to have the life they do will make all the difference as they become adults. 

I posted over on Let's Capture the Memories today -- and shared this canvas with everyone. It features the Simple Stories Generations Line and it urned out great. Make sure you stop by and check out everything that Tanya has going on there -- it's a lot and all of it is FABULOUS!

Anyways, thank you for letting me share a bit with you today and remember all the small things..they make the biggest difference.

*{No Clever Title Friday}*

Sometimes I run out of words, I know you don't believe that...especially those of you who endure my texting and/or phone calls...but I think my brain is fried this Friday -- it could be because I spilled coffee all over my scrapdesk and it sounded like A Christmas Story up in here...yeah, I just referenced A Christmas Story in February...which is totally fine...just sayin'. 

Today's share...FABULOUS WORK OUT #62 over at ScrapFIT...the girls really created some lovely stuff to inspire you -- so make sure you get over there and participate. The Design Team inspiration is magnificent!

Here's my contribution to that challenge:

*{ScrapFIT & Groundhog's Day!}*

BAHAHAHAH! Anyone who knows me, knows how much I *heart* Bill Murray, so of course I am going to add this photo to my would be ridiculous if I didn't!!!


I love Groundhog's Day literally and figuratively! Just had to share that!!

The real reason I am bringing you this post is to share with you the new DT at ScrapFIT debuted their first reveal on Workout #61...and it's *{STUNNING!}*

The Workout was to begin with a white space....a blank, open canvas if you will, and for those of you have followed me know that I am white space impaired...and must fill up each nook and cranny, leaving nowhere for the eye to this was beyond a challenge for me, it was more like a war. (...but I think I won.)

The challenge was actually perfect for the picture I wanted to feature. I wanted that picture to be the focal point as it is hilarious. It perfectly captures a typical day/holiday in the Morgan house. Now it is documented proof that all the things I try to describe to you with great effort is clear as day before you. Imagine me standing there trying to get everyone to sit still...Patrick is actually making bizarre, gutteral noises, Mackenzie squealing like a banshee, my Mom is sighing, Karl is counting, Meg is ready to pounce and Cinna is trying really hard to just bolt from the room....and I am asking for everyone to look at the camera....without much success. (But the picture is perfect the way it is, the kids will look back and remember how fun that Christmas was.)

{Scrapfit Workout #61 -Shannon M.} .}

Happy Groundhogs Day! Make sure you head over to ScrapFIT for the rest of the reveal and submit your own layout!!! :)
