kids pumpkin carving and Trick-Or-Treating last
night. They had a blast and even Becca (who is 13 and
officially too old for TOTing now) had a blast dressing
in all black pretending to be robbers running around
the neighborhood with her cousin and friends. Carter
wasn't quite sure what it was all about but was pretty
convinced that he liked it when he got to play with other
kids and have a couple bites of chocolate. Emily got to
TOT with her favortie cousin and collect tons of candy
so that pretty much made her month. I hope everyone
had as much fun as my kids did!!! Have a great rest of

that I made this week. We have been dying to carve
pumpkins around here but I've been making the girls
wait until closer to the end of the week so that their
jack-o-lanterns won't be rotten on Halloween.
Hope you all enjoy this week!!

First of all, it's my 32nd Birthday so
Happy Birthday to me!!!!
I live in this tiny little town that you can
drive right through without even knowing if you're
not careful. I live right on Main St. walking distance
from pretty much everything...the park and play ground,
neighborhood grocery store, gas station, post office, police
station, community center, you get the idea. Well, this is
the gorgeous scene that I woke up to this morning...
Also, my 14 month old Carter did something totally
gross and yet still hilarious yesterday. If you live in the
mid-west like I do then you know how this time of year
everyone gets swarms of ladybugs crawling on and around
the house and many will even find their way into the house.
So, Carter was looking out of the window just watching the
cars and walkers go by like he always does and as he turns
around I can see that he has something in his mouth.
My oldest, Becca, said "Um Mom...I think Carter ate a ladybug"
and yes that was the case. He must have grabbed it off the
window sill and decided that it looked halfway edible and
popped that little sucker right into his mouth. So after I got
him to spit it out and it stuck to his chin I decided that it was too
funny to pass up and I snapped a couple of pics...
The bad thing is that I can't keep them out of the house and
he ate a second ladybug later last night...at least they are not
getting swallowed, just sampled for a little while.
Now lastly I have a layout that I did for Moxxie of course
and then a few cards that I made just for fun.
Thanks so much for looking and hope you all have a

and it paid off! Both the 7th grade and 8th grade girls volleyball
teams won City!! Way to go girls! Now we're off to County in
BTW, Becca is the one in the top row second from the left #7.
Yes, she's the tallest on the team but she's 5'7" not 6'5"
like she appears to be in the photo....the other tall girls are
sitting down towards the front. I just laughed until I cried
about how silly this looks and my kids probably think I'm crazy!
Have a great evening

He's growing so fast and I snap so many pictures that my
favorite is constantly changing. This photo I love because
of that cute little smile and because my dad LOVES tropical
shirts. My daughters and I found this one at a rummage and
just had to buy it! Of course, I had to take some pictures of
Carter in the shirt to send to my dad and this one turned
out so cute that it's now my current favorite.
Well, I'm off to dig into my new box of goodies from Moxxie!
Have a great day!!

those of you that don't will find this extremely shocking since
I've been a scrapbooker for 13 years, but I made my FIRST
mini album last week!!! It's even shocking to me. I don't know
what I've been waiting for because I always love and admire
mini's and think that they are just the cutest, but I always end
up going for the layout instead. So finally last week I decided
to go for it. I have this adorable pet line from Moxxie called
Man's Best Friend. It makes a perfect little mini album for
some adorable little puppy or doggie pictures!! Hope u like it!!

I honestly can't believe how fast the time has flown by!
I've tried to savor every little second of this time with
him as a baby, but now as he is beginning to walk,
and talk, and play, his baby days are numbered.
I will definitely miss holding that tiny head in
my hands, but I absolutely love the fun age that he
is now and I look forward to all the joy he will bring
us in the future with all of the exciting and fun stages
still to come.
The party was fantastic and Carter enjoyed ripping
into the wrapping paper on his gifts, and also smearing
his own little individual birthday cake all over his face.
Here's a few of the pics from the party.
