My New SIGNATURE!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, I will be the first to admit that I am not so quick on the computer stuff, but after watching this YouTube video by Jessica Stanford on creating your own blog signature I can officially state that I am capable of following directions.  ( I had to watch it once all the way through, then I did the whole start and stop while trying to do it myself bit, then when I got behind and "yes I did" I had fun reversing, and fast forwarding it)  Is my new signature going to rock this world with its awesomeness, ha, not likely but it is way better than the not so existent one I have currently.  YES!!  It is colorful, has my name, and as I laugh writing this I was channeling a LITTLE Chitty Chitty Bang Bang action.  I love the music in that movie.  Truly Scrumptious is one of my absolute favs, so of coarse this lady just had to be Yours Truly

As is always evident when I write a post I am quite scatter brained, and this is no exception but I wanted the let all those who know me be aware that this number nerd found a small shred of computer savy enough to make my new cute signature that I can now enjoy when I close out any new blog post.

And just because I now have the lyrics to this song humming through my head here they are for you to enjoy (One of my favorite songs from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang)

Truly Scrumptious

Toot sweets sound like what they are
So do lollys in a lollypop jar
Gingerbread men have a gingerbread sound, we've found
Sugar plum cinnamon and lemon tart tell you what they are right from the
start
And your name does the same for you
By coincidence, Truly Scrumptious
You're truly truly scrumptious
Scrumptious as a cherry peach parfait
When your near us
It's so delicious
Honest Truly, you're the answer to our wishes
Truly Scrumptious
Though we may seem presumptuous
Never, never, ever go away
Our hearts beat so unruly
Because we love you truly
Honest Truly, we do
Truly scrumptious
You two are truly scrumptious
Scrumptious as the breeze across the bay
When you're smiling
It's so delicious
So beguiling
You're the answer to my wishes
Truly scrumptious
You two are truly scrumptious
And I shan't forget this lovely day
My heart beats so unruly
I also love you truly
Honest truly, I do

I have not forgotten

        It has been too too long since I have sat down to update this blog that I had such great hope for. The ideas that I could not wait to write down have flown from my brain and as I look at the last post I come to realize that time has past me by.  I want to make this a record, I want this to mean something special to me, and one day I want to be able to scan through some of the rough times I had when my kids were little and see the amazing people they have grown to be.
        I may be as scatter brained as moms come but my over ambitious motivation frequently has fruitful rewards so if you just want to come hang out to see what all goes on with this Craft Geeky momma I hope you come visit often.


         By the way that cute little girl from our last post is not so little.  I might cry for hours after her her next birthday when she turns TWO because it will be my way of mourning the passing of my last little girls baby years.  We are the proud parents of three healthy, beautiful, smart, and full of love children, and even when you know that you know that YOU KNOW you are done having kids you still find sorrow in the what ifs.  It has been hard to firmly plant my foot down and state that we are done and our family is complete (in great part because of my OCD issues and hating odd numbers), but this stay at home mom has to have a small amount of sanity left to survive those dreaded teenage years. 
      
 With hope and love for the great blessings in store

Yours Sincerely,

Rachel
