November Pep Rally

Hi and welcome to the November Clique Kits Pep Rally! You should be coming here from Caroli's blog.

With this month's kit, I made 4 layouts. Three of those four were about our new love, Chipper. We adopted him in September, and the whole Deutsch family is head over heels in love. As I wrote in the journaling, it's not like we were very serious before, but with Chipper in our lives, there is a lot more giggling in our home. It is not a sound one generally associates with teenage boys, but we get to hear it.

And, in case you missed some of the other Chipper layouts.

I even have one that I made with the October kit, too. This one is about the day we took him home.

I should probably remember to scrapbook about my children at some point.

For the record, if you have a child who is a senior in high school, and you are feeling sad about his impending departure from your home, a dog is a great surrogate for all your love and affection, and a wonderful distraction from your pain. 

Thanks for stopping by! Next stop on the blog hop is Janet Zeppa's blog.

Here is the whole line up for today's hop:

Write.Click.Scrapbook November Gallery

Hungry Anyone?

That is the theme for this month's gallery at Write.Click.Scrapbook. I love using the gallery themes to get layouts done. I had some photos from this summer's road trip that I wanted to scrap. Nothing terribly exciting, but photos that captured a little moment about how we prepared for Shabbat (the Sabbath) while spending the weekend in South Carolina.

Traveling while keeping kosher and observing the Sabbath require a bit of planning. Dave mapped out which cities on our route had Kosher meat available, and we made sure to stop there. Sometimes there were several hours of driving before we had access to some hot food. Often our meals consisted of yogurt, cereal, and crackers, Just writing about it makes me hungry.

Anyway, I turned the above two photos into this layout. It was enough for me here simply to record where we got out food. A small detail that I want to remember.

Thanks for stopping by!
