Caution! Caution! Caution! ---- A tad bit risque photos ahead!

Oh, the pictures I could show you! I COULD, but I fear it would be too unforgiveable. My son, Nick, would more than likely smother me in my sleep. I'll give you the jist of what they are. Can you picture this - 9 year old BOY + upside down pink padded bra? There's a mental picture I'm sure you could live without. Picture that and add some "striking" poses. HA!!!! I just about wet myself when he was hamming it up. Sheesh! I will allow myself the pleasure of posting some of the "said" poses reenacted by my 4 year old GIRL. You think that's funny? OMG! If I could only put you over the top with the 9 year old antics!

Moving on...

I was able to complete a couple layouts today. I did one for SPOT TAG over at I lifted one of Ari's amazing creations. Hers is titled "Strong Family." I thank her for the inspiration. I did another one for an upcoming issue of I just LOVE both of these sites. So much fun and ideas are amazing!

Anyway, I must complete my domestic duties. Next up...meal prepartion. Yeah!

Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy Blake - Thanksgiving - Nut Allergy - Clean Livingroom...???

What in the world? Okay, Blake really put a show on for me last week. He likes the spotlight, especially when he's giving me his Cool Dude poses. Hilarious!

Thanksgiving - I actually took photos this year. It was a very relaxing, yummy day! Seriously, I have so much to be thankful for, it's just too long to list. I'll be putting a layout together soon. The photo I decided to share today is of the boy playing with their guns, which were supplied by non-other-than...Nick. Imagine that. He brought a whole garbage bag full of guns. They had a blast!

Nut Allergy - Kaila had an enounter with a Hazelnut, which I believe she's never eaten before. She's had almost every other nut you can eat. I'm giving you an inflamed and uninflamed photo to compare. The nut just TOUCHED her lips. She didn't even eat it! I'm calling the doctor today to get some other food allergy testing done. It freaks me out!

One more thing to be thankful for...a clean livingroom! Check it out!!!!

Lastly, I have some layouts to share. To get a closer look, just click on the photo.

I really appreciate you stopping by!

Thanks for peeking!

Just a little to catch you up on. Since my last visit, we have experienced Halloween, thwarted the escape of a deer (yum!), installed my paintings from 3 years ago and created a several halfmaps from Yes, we've been busy, but I'm definitely NOT complaining.

First off, we have the annual pumpkin carving at Grandma Lahr's. I can't tell you how much these kids look forward to scooping out the pumpkin guts and carving them some faces. It's hysterical. They all just dig right in. They were all tired and orniary, but we got it done! Then three days later, Halloween was upon us. Talk about frantic running all over. Sheesh! We had Kaila's program. We dropped off Nick's stuff for Halloween, dropped Kaila off at MIL's, zipped over to Blake's parade, picked Kaila up and zipped home to get the kids off of the bus. That night we had trick-or-treating. I had to take several photos of the unwilling children prior to departing. Right before leaving, Charlie came home and he actually went with us for the first time EVER! That was really nice. He and I were both impressed with the children saying thank you for every little piece of candy...until Grandma's. Can you believe they had to be prompted to tell Grandma thank you? I think they were exhausted. I was definitely glad it was over, but I have to say it was a really nice Halloween. Here they are in all their glory.
I guess Charlie got this deer towards the beginning of October, but I never posted a picture. This is Charlie with his first deer shot with a bow. He was so excited! Oh, so was I...don't have to purchase nasty store beef.

Next, we have the installation of my paintings from October 2004. I still need to purchase some other items to complete the look, but this will do for now.

Lastly, we have some layouts I created using the halfmaps. I completed all of these using The Scrapping Spot's November Kit. Loved it!

That's all for now. It's back to the grind for me. I've already accomplished so much for today. The rest will be alllll cake!

Thanks for stopping by!
