Happy happy Saturday!

How is your weekend going?
We are busy busy busy but having lots of fun!
Last night we took the kids to Spooktacular at Powell Gardens
It was pretty chilly but we enjoyed ourselves despite the weather
Without further ado, I give you, Billy Mays, Hamburger Montana and SpiderMan.
This is the first year they have had free reign over their costumes
(I know shame on me)
and I am so amused at their choices!

"Billy Mays here!"

The Best of Both Worlds (just on a sesame bun)
Spectacular Spectacular SPIDERMAN!
And here I am on the trolley with my brood :)

Today we played in the "Monster Bash", a Halloween themed tournament in Kansas
We had to be there at 8 AM and it was an hour away, and fittingly enough it was colder than a witch's tit!
In May we went to one of their tournaments and were comparable to the Bad News Bears
I am proud to say that today we were UNDEFEATED!


There were lots of spooky decorations and the kids loved it

Afterwards we went for pizza at our favorite pizza place, Tim's Pizza
Tim, the owner is such a great guy,
the kids love to watch through the glass as he makes our pizza!

Over at A Million Memories there is a Big Anniversary party going on!
I will be honest, I never quite "got" what an online crop is but now that I have officially participated in one, I love it!
Stacy Cohen gave us a sketch challenge and here is my take on it:
(I used the new MME Colorful Christmas line that I won on the MME blog!!! I just got it on Friday and can't wait to make more fun things with it! Thanks, Amber!)

Then we did a Mystery Layout challenge with Lucy Edson and it was so much fun
Every 15 minutes she gave us instructions on what to do next
Here is what I came up with using the new Basic Grey "Eerie" line
(I feel a little silly making a layout of myself called "Hot Mama"
but seriously, I had just given birth like 2 weeks before this photo was taken!)

If you have a minute drop by AMM, the challenges are great
and they are doing tons of giveaways!
Wish us luck tomorrow, we will play in the championship for the Monster Bash
Don't tell anyone but I think it's in the bag
