A couple of months ago Greg and the boys decided to cut a hole in the grass in the back yard and build a fire pit.  When we go tent camping or cabin camping the boys always make a big campfire and Greg decided it would be a good idea to be able to do the same thing at home.  So it was done.  We have had a few fires since they built it.  This week the snow came and the boys decided that a big fire was just the thing to do.  So in the middle of the snow they built a campfire. Now add to that the marshmallows that Ryan found at the store right before Christmas.  They are called Giant Roasters – super big marshmallows just for campfires.  Ryan pulled those out and I took pictures and created this scrapbook page in My Digital Studio.  The actual layout is from Heather Summers – she has to be the MDS queen and she was one of the winners of the recent contest.

I have decided to try to show my pictures as completed scrapbook pages instead of just the pictures so you’ll have to wait on the rest of the snow pictures.  I’m hoping that I’ll do a better job of scrapping my pictures.  The funny thing is I make lots of scrapbook pages – I really do have tons, I just don’t always get any pictures on them – even though I usually do have in mind what I plan to put on them.  This year I’m going to try to show the every day events of 2011 in an MDS album.  This is a 12×12 page the colors are Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Very Vanilla and Kraft (Crumb Cake).

I will be on my way to the Leadership conference today and hope that I can get there.  I am driving and we still have snow and ice everywhere from the storm.  The kids are out of school for the third day and potentially will be out the rest of the week.  It won’t really get warm until Saturday.  I hope the interstates are clear from here to Nashville so say a prayer for me that Linda (she is traveling with me) and I arrive safely in Nashville.  Wendy was supposed to ride with us but she was unable to fly into Atlanta on Monday because the airport was closed but she was able to get to Nashville on Tuesday so we will meet her at the hotel.  If you are headed to leadership I hope to see you there!!
