Some new things to show you!

Why is it that Mondays are so rough?
It seems that we are always running late and dragging butt on Mondays
(Staying up until 3 AM on Saturday night probably didn't help much)
Mike & I were invited to our friend Chad & Tamera's house for dinner, drinks and games
We played The Newlywed Game, Cranium and ended the night with Shuffleboard.
Chad played DJ all night which was entertaining, it was fun "requesting" songs LOL
Sunday was football day, we are loyal Kansas City Chiefs fans
which frankly, has been quite depressing these past few seasons.
We used to buy season tickets but haven't lately.
See how great our seats were?

Here is a random photo of my kiddos I thought I'd share with you:

I finally drug some fall/Halloween decor out...

this is a witch that my Grandma made, isn't she awesome?!?
Like my giant spider on top of the lamp?

I made 2 layouts yesterday with some of my new October Afternoon
I LOVE this paper!!!!
These photos are from a 2007 Montessori field trip to Shatto Dairy Farm
First I'll show you Koby...
I did some stitching on this and I really like the way it turned out
Everything on this page is OA with the exception of the milkcaps and journal spot
(They are Jenni Bowlin)

and now Miss Mia the "Milk maid" ;)
It was so funny, she milked the cow and the milk squirted all over her
(that explains the face in the last pic!!)
I also used some Jenni Bowlin on this page
the sheer journal spot and leaf pins are Maya Road.
I stitched in pink on this page to match the little piggy on the paper
Mia adores pigs and was excited to see the little oinker on her page!!

That's all I have for now
Enjoy your Monday
(whether you are dragging butt or not)


  1. LOL! It must have been the weekend for late nights. I stayed up until 4:00 am scrapping with a friend. And yes, my dear, seeing as I'm considerably older than you, there is no doubt my butt is dragging...sagging AND dragging! LOL!
