We had a fairly busy weekend...soccer, scrapping, church and a corn maze!

This was Kaila's last OFFICIAL game. We still have a scrimmage on Saturday. She finally got to play offense and was pretty aggressive.

A couple cards I made from scraps.

It was great weather all weekend, besides being just a touch cold.

Halloween is fast approaching with Thanksgiving right on its heels! There is always so much to do around this time of year that it's hard to enjoy the beautiful weather and colors.

October is my favorite month of the year. I'm not sure why exactly...it just is.

We start with Kaila's birthday. I didn't get any actual photos on her 10th birthday. I know...I am a terrible mother...JUST terrible! I took her and two of her friends to Olympic Fun Center for 5 hours to make up for her not-so-great birthday. She only wanted $$$ so she could add it to her other $$$ to purchase a computer/tablet...whatever. So, there was no opening of presents :( Anyway, they had a blast and were very tired after this day.

Surpirse!!! More about Kaila, because she seems to have the most going on right now. She is almost done playing her first season of soccer. I enjoyed it immensely and she liked it. I just don't know if she'll do it again.

Here's a layout I did of Blake blowing bubbles back in 2009 using a Scrapbook Challenges sketch. I'll have you know that that hand-stitching took 45 minutes.

Here's a layout I did of Kaila when she couldn't even walk yet. I thought it was a Scrapfriends sketch, but I can't find it. I'll see if I can add it later.
Oh, look here! Here's another layout of Kaila using a sketch from Nuts About Sketches.

I would love to share the following link with you for a crop at My Scraps & More. I plan on participating and hope you'll join in as well.

Our family took a trip to Benezette, PA to observe the elk. We were able to hear a little bugling in the early morning, but only saw a couple elk. We did hike for two hours as well.


Here are a couple layouts I did recently.
