Pics that were promised

Well I'm sick. So I didn't get to go to the parade tonight which is fine really cause I didn't want to take Ian out in the cold, damp and very breezy night. And it turned out Bryson's team decided not to be in the parade like an hour before hand! huh???? So I don't think I missed anything.

It gave me a chance to catch up on the blog and post the pics I promised... so here goes!

These of our trip to the Pumpkin Patch. Ian, Bryson and then the large pumpkin we picked that day. We came home with 4 but this one is the main one ;0)

Next we have Bryson showing his spirit for his football tourney last Sat. He wanted to die his hair so I bought some Halloween stuff - boy did that make a mess - I wouldn't recommend this product! But what do I get for $1 a can?

Then lastly these are just some pics of the boys this past week. Ian turned 8 months old yesterday. He's getting so big!!!!

I need more time!

To do just about everything... I am not prepared for anything anymore and this week isn't going to give me much time to get ready!

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!

Fall celebrations

So what do you do to celebrate the most wonderful season of them all? Of course that is just my opinion - but I do love fall the most. Our family tradition is to go to the pumpkin patch and pick out our pumpkins. This year was Ian's first trip to the patch. I'll post some pics soon.

The other tradition that sort of goes hand in hand is we always buy apple dumplings for Joel. His mother used to make them for him all the time and since she passed, I have not mustered the courage to attempt to make them myself... soooo we buy them ;0)

Last weekend at the cybercrop at Tally I entered this layout based on the apple dumplings and won 2nd place! I am so excited I never win anything - especially when I am competing with so many talented ladies over there...

I used Basic Grey's Ambrosia collection for the papers, cardstock and boarder stickers. I don't like the way it photographed.. I think it's much nicer in person ;0)
So I have a ton more stuff to post but it's late and I'm cold and tired... the bed is calling.
Tomorrow I will post all the upcoming crops and events I have coming up in the next few weeks. So stay tuned!
PS - what is everyone going to be for Halloween? Post here please!

Great to be a govt worker!

Had the day off today! Although it was a day off, I got zero scrapping done. Zero zilch! BUT here is a layout I got finished the other day for a challenge over at Tally.
But the day was a productive. I took Ian to visit his GG and NaNa plus the girls I used to work with at the accounting firm. Ofcourse he got lots of smiles and kisses - he was eating it up!
He's been too fussy lately, think his tooth is coming soon. I can only hope!
So other than that not much going on here... going to call it an early night, got some scrap mags to read!
Good night!

Just Perfect

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!

First Sick Day

I knew Ian was sick, a minor cold I thought, but he's had it for a few weeks now. He's teething so that doesn't help either... so I finally felt the need to take him to the Dr. although I knew that they don't do anything for the run of the mill cold. I'm glad I did! He had so much wax in his ears I could have made a candle. Plus his ears were infected... but no fever, no fussiness, nothing. Which means he's a real trooper! Poor little man... so today, was Ian's first sick day ;0)

Good news is with the sick day I have been able to work on a layout! Hope to get it done and uploaded tomorrow.

This weekend is another home game for GMF. Our Warriors are 5-0 and loving it more every week! Here's a pic of Bryson at the last home game.

And finally - we got our Halloween Swap stuff yesterday! So much cool Halloween goodness...see!
