Catching Up!

How has it been a month since I last blogged?  Seriously, this year has gone by so quickly.

Let's see, before it snowed, we had some Fall fun...

We carved pumpkins...

We went to another pumpkin patch!






And finally trick or treating!!!


Everyone kept asking me what/who Hope was going to be for Halloween.  Well, if you don't have kids it was hard to describe.  She was Mal, which is Malificent's daughter in the Disney movie Decendents.  The movie is about the children of Malificent, Evil Queen (from Snow White), Jafar and Cruela DeVille.

So one of the neighbor girls was dressed up as Malificent, so we had to get their picture together-mother/daughter.  :)


And here is all the kids before they left with the dad's to get the treats!


And once the trick or treating was done, it was time to have fun for the adults too!



And the party ended with a FUN mystery.  Apparently someone "hid" Brian's boot when he took it off to race Damon down our street.  Long story short, he wasn't pleased, but the rest of us got a good chuckle out of it.  :)


Well, I have so much more to share from November, but will wait until next time...I promise it won't be that long.

So, how about some fall themed projects to share...

Here is the layout from Hope's 3rd grade class.  Instead of doing a layout for each activity I just summarize the year in one double page layout.  






I had so many stories and memories this year that I had to get creative on my journaling.  So I made a pocket behind the larger photos so I could make a pull up tag with journaling (see below).


And of of course a few sport themed cards for all those hard working coaches that deserve our thanks (well unless you coach the Cyclones).  That was the worst ending to a football game I have ever heard (was listening on the radio).  Ugh!



This card has a story.  Hope likes to craft with me in my craft cave, and this card was laying on my desk after I finished it.  Well, she was cutting some paper with my trimmer and must have accidentally cut a small part of the card.  So, I just made it work.  I added the tapes to hold the paper together and the star for decoration.  :)  It actually turned out better this way.  


And of course, the layout from last year's trip to the pumpkin patch!



Alright, that is all for now...have a great night!
