Hoops and a Project

My 11 year old son, "Bug" is an amazing basketball player.(of course I'm his mom so I think he is awesome at everything) But he really does have a natural talent at most sports he tries, and right now it's basketball season. This is his first year on a comp. team and he has had a blast. He is a tall boy at almost 5'2", his team is the"shooterz" and he's number 12. I am so proud to be his mom. He's a good brother to his sisters, he's an awesome student, he's funny, and just a great kid. I am lucky I couldn't ask for a better son. I love you Bug!!
My husband and I both have large families. At Christmas time we get lots of photos in cards. I am so far behind in my scrapbooking and I didn't want to just file away all the new pictures, so I came up with a solution... I bought an old frame at a thrift store for a couple of dollars, painted and then distressed it. I then basically do an extra large scrapbook/collage page and I hang it in my craft room. I have done this for the last few years and I love to be able to look at all the pics of my family. Unfortunately we don't always get everyones new photos so I just put up what I get. When the year is over I file away the old photos and change the look for the new year. My kids like to help too, and I always have to get Jibbity's approval before I hang it up. Easy and fast, that's my kind of project.
