Loved it! We had friends of Joel's come an watch the game and I had a blast. I jumped up and down in excitement...now I can go to work tomorrow with a huge smile on my face and probably end up having my Terrible Towel put in the trash... that's how those Raven fans operate... at least the ones I work with ;0)
Over at Tally we extended the 12 Days of Xmas challenges. I am so far behind at this point I'm just trying to do the ones that really speak to me. Here is one I completed last week...Have a great week. BTW - have I told you I have done virtually NO xmas shopping? YIKES!!!!!

Hmm these are sorta all over the place huh?
Well my next bit of news - WAY excited that the Steelers won Sunday. But they play again Thursday, not much time to rest ;0( - And yes Latte - we can still be friends.
BUT I guess the most exciting news of all is my little guy Ian, just got his first tooth today! It broke through sometime during day and I am so tickled! He's been a little crabby ;0)
And one last pic before I go... bought Bryson and Ian new winter stuff...went to GAP outlet on Sat and got Bryson this hat. He actually got in trouble in school with cause he wanted to wear it to gym class and they wouldn't let him... well at least he likes it a lot right?
til the next time - happy scrapping!

Today was the last Warriors football game until next season ;0( But my little guy had 4 tackles and his name was over the announcements all morning! It was so great to see him and his team go out on top. Technically an undefeated season... and they tied on one scrimmage. So they played awesome! Not bad for a bunch of smurfs.
This week that Halloween parade is Tues. The football is in the parade. Then Wed is pizza party and equipment hand ins. Friday is Halloween and then Sat and Sun I am gone mostly all day. I don't know when I will breathe! I think there are going to be a lot of late nights cause I have a ton to do to get ready for this weekend.
Okay - I rambled on a great deal about nothing! I have a ton of pics to upload including Pumpkin patch, last football game, Ian sitting by himself and the cool little gift bags I made for this weekends vendor symposium. I want to have some cards done too but I doubt that will happen.. as I said - I need more time!

Well Ian came home sick today. He was just too congested to eat by mid-morning and the director called me to come pick him up (sigh). But that's okay cause when they are sick they feel better with their mommies and I got some time to take a nap and finish a layout! Granted its a simplisitc one but hey - right now I'm not getting much time to do anything so any layout getting done is a blessing.
Just think he's so perfect! I have a million photos of this particular photo shoot but this pic I love the most.
So now Ian offically has two layouts in his album... poor guy mommy better get cracking!

On a different note - I'd like to say Happy Birthday to Catherine. She's almost 40! hee hee...not really she's only 38 today. So if you see Cath give her a big spank on the behind cause she likes that and tell her you're voting for Obama! She really will like that ;0) Love you Catherine!!!!!!

One of the kitchen table chairs was knocked over, the table cloth in a pile on top of the tipped over chair, and my tuscany vase was in pieces all over the floor and the chair. There was also spots of dog pee all over the dinning room floor. I really have no idea how it happened I would bet money that the pee was from the dog, the rest was the cat. Harley is very bad ;0)
So...at 7:15pm at night I didn't feel like cooking and cleaning so I made hubby stop at McDonald's on his way home.
Aaahhhh...now that my kitchen floor is sparkling clean, I can go to bed. So much for scrapping and posting a pic of my Halloween swap project. There's always tomorrow!

Football is in full swing. Bryson's second game is Sunday at 11am which really stinks cause it's away - over an hour away so we will more than likely miss the opening kickoff to the Steeler's game. Ahhh we are getting old! Next week we are at home so that's good!
I think I'm getting sick on too of all this... probably because I am run down... but I think doing out drinking on Sat night didn't help ;0) - gotta blame it on something. No really though I had a great time and it's something I don't get to do too often but never miss a chance to hang with my Michelle!
And now it just hit me that I actually have two weeks left until I leave for San Antonio! Geez...when will things slow down????

Pretty spooky huh? Anywho, I finally decided what to do now I just have to finish getting the rest of the supplies. This photo was found off of some site on the internet so I can't take credit for it's creation! But very Vintage feeling and that is the goal. I will post one when I am finished - don't know when that will be but you know - soon.
Well have a great week ladies and gents (if any frequent the blog) and pray for Fall to get here soon! I love fall!!!!!

On a totally different note, everyone at Tally is loving the 4th of July page and I am so glad. But I gotta tell you there are so many talented ladies over there I just can't compete! But it's fun trying. Just want to say thanks to Christi who keeps encouraging me with comments on my blog and on Tally! Thanks Christi! Check out her blog - the link is below.
And finally, we just got home a little bit ago from meet the teacher night. It is with mixed emotions I leave there cause one, its a new school. I don't think it's as nice as the one Bryson was in and should be since he is no longer going in our own district. But the staff in his TES room is wonderful. He'll have 4 other kids in the class with a FT teacher and a FT aid plus theroputic professionals three times a week. I know it's what he needs but I miss the normalsy of a regular classroom. I miss the staff and parents at James Gettys already. But I just pray that soon Bryson will be able to adjust and learn and grow and be productive so he can go back to mainstream where he belongs. Uuuhhhh.... okay I'm done venting.
Any who - this all started with wishing Michelle a happy birthday so again - girlie have a great day! And can't wait until Saturday evening - hope I won't be too much of a wet blanket for you!

I need to get better at taking pictures at the right angle. Since I can not scan (just not smart enough to figure out the stitching thing), I need to take pics of the layouts. Sometimes I can't cut out the table, chair or whatever it is they sit on while I snap them. Someday I'll get high tech.
The next photos are of the Whimsy Jar swap I did over at Tallyscrapper.com
The first is the jar I made to send to LadyMissSusan(on the left), and the other two are of the jar she gave me and the loot inside! Bryson had fun helping me look through all the goodies. He even got to take the whistle that was in there... just so he'd stop asking me so many questions!
Ahh... it was also a busy weekend. Parties, football and being outside a lot. I am kinds tired! Here is one last pic of Ian in his saucer...he's getting the hang of it and the toys but he's not quite flat-footed yet on the bottom. Maybe in another week or two - just a few more inches boy - you can do it!
Okay, gotta go post all this good stuff on Tally! Happy back to school to all those heading back this week here in PA and MD. Bryson starts Wed. Thank goodness!

A little mini-golf, dinner at Ruby Tues. and then some goodies... like Guitar Hero on Tour for his DS. The guys doesn't put it down! Ofcourse he got a lot of other cool goodies from our friends and family. Steelers toothbrush that Aunt Michelle gave him rocks! Then Sunday we had a cookout with family as I have about 10 people on my side with birthdays in Aug. We just pick a day and celebrate.
Weather has been great here - I've finally gotten my hubby to leave the windows open for the time being so to save $ on electric...it's just crazy!
I had to post this photo...it's of Ian in a not so happy state. But I think it's just too cute.
I'm sure he'll thank me one day for putting this on the internet!
I haven't had much time to scrap at all and I am really bummed cause everytime I jump on Tally I get the urge to scrap and it's like 10pm and I am barely awake... gotta go to sleep! Maybe this weekend... I'll keep my fingers crossed!
