More Halloween

Here are some pictures we took today while trick-or-treating. Aren't they the cutest kids ever? The two toe heads are my sister Lacy's kids. Mine is the vampire. He wasn't really too much into trick-or-treating at first, but once they got going he was more excited. I think he was just afraid people would think he was too old. But there were still lots of kids his age out. He's only 11.

My young Edward--Isn't he a handsome vampire?The gang

Princess in training--seriously!Here comes trouble with a capital T--what a heartbreaker.Me and my boy. This is one picture where I can actually tell that I've lost 60 lbs.

This last one is just too sweet to pass up.


So, this is me before work today. I love dressing up for Halloween. I didn't have a lot of time or ambition to do a costume this year, so I just threw some Hallowen colors together and my dear sister, Kim, let me borrow some jewelry and this cool witches hat. I love it because it doesn't mess up your hair and give you hat hair for the entire day. I haven't been really "feeling" Halloween this year, but I am today lol. I feel bad because we didn't even carve or paint our pumpkins this year. They are sitting on our porch all nice and undecorated. Poor Garrett. I'm a bad mom. He doesn't seem to care much though. I think he's starting to get a bit older now and less into it. That's sad. I never lost it. Dude, I trick-or-treated til I was 17 years old. I was short, so they probably didn't know I was that old tee hee. It wasn't really about the candy. It was about the fun of it all and dressing up and trying to scare your friends. Ah, memories. Well, have to go to work now. Boring.

Alaska 2007 Scrapbook (cont'd)

I finally finished my husband's 2007 Alaska trip album. It is really hard to scrap something you weren't there for. And, since Shane doesn't really remember a whole lot now, it was even harder. Maybe I should start their 2008 trip now. It will be even funner because Garrett went.

I Ride?

I haven't scrapbooked for a long time. I just never have time anymore. Plus, half the time I sit down and nothing comes out. I've found that using sketches really helps me a lot. I did this layout of my son at 2 (he's 11 now, yeah I'm a bit behind) with a sketch from Valerie Salmon's sketch blog, I really like that blog. Anyway, isn't he just adorable? I miss my little chunk monk. Love my G, but you mother's know what I mean.

My Children

Dude--my sister did this on her blog, so I thought I would play. Well, when I went to make my babies on, my baby came out looking almost exactly like Lacy's. Twilight Zone music. I know, imagine that huh? Anyway, these are my kids according to this site lol. Hop on over to Lacy's site and you'll see what I mean by our little girls looking alike.

P.S. What's with the red hair? Shane's dad has red hair, but neither of us do. And Lacy's kid had it too. Hmmm.

Fall, Autumn, Harvest, Halloween, the list goes on....

I love this time of year. I love putting on warmer clothes. I love the chill in the morning and breaking out hot cocoa. I love the colors of the leaves and the change of pace in the air. I love shopping for Christmas and trick-oir-treating. And, I really love the pictures I get to take lol. This is one we took last year of my niece and nephew (toe heads) and Garrett in the pumpkin patch. Sadly, G will be getting too old for that soon. I hope he'll remember it as fondly as I have.
