As promised...

I promised Chad I would post by the end of the weekend...Life has been busy since my last post...It was great seeing the CHEMTD's this weekend and Chaim and Oscar loved having their cousins around to play with. You guys are the best. Sadly I did not bring my camera to document the fun...Speaking of documenting the fun...I want to do a blog/journal picture book like Tan. I think it is a great way to keep track of memories as the kids are growing waay to fast. I would love to make it a project 365 kind of thing, with "happies and sads" and the crazy things the kids say and do throughout the day. I know, pretty ambitious for someone who hasn't posted in over 5 months...but I'll give it a go...As such, I will be taking Growing Paynes private (just as soon as I can figure out how to do that)...So, thanks for following along everyone...but although I love "Journal Sharing Time", and have loved all your comments...I will have to say goodbye. I just don't think I will be able to be as free with my writing if I know others are reading it too...
But to appease the narcissist in me, I am starting an additional blog...JC & Co. Cottage so I can write about some of my other interests of late...thrifting, decorating, and homemakering type stuff...Stop on over sometime. My first post will be one of my phantom posts from Growing paynes (up for a few hours and then pulled from the blog)...Some may have already read it, but here it is again in case you didn't catch it the first time.
Cheers. Over and out!


  1. Yay! A new post on Growing Paynes. It's good to have you back Crystal.

    "Sadly I did not bring my camera to document the fun..." Are you sure you're related to your siblings?

    But wait, you're leaving us and going private? Oh no!

    Whew! It appears all is not lost for us faithful readers afterall. See you over at JC & Co. Cottage then.

  2. Crystal Yeah!!!! Nice post. What do you mean you are going private?

    Oh and I'm excited for your new blog

  3. Wow Crystal! That is pretty ambitious of you.
