Never a Dull Moment

Well as you can see there is never a dull moment at our house. Something is going on at all times. I guess that is good because I would hate to be bored. However, someday I want to be board for one day just to see what it feels like. Hahahah. Actually I love all the excitement at our house. It keeps me on my toes.

So I started out a few days by catching a bug. Not a cute bug like this one. The naughty bug I caught knocked me right off my feet for a few days. I attempted to be productive yesterday and get some photos on the workshop layouts that you are all waiting for me to post. It took me all day to get photos on one layout. Today is much better so maybe I can finish them up tonight and get them posted. Thanks for your patience.

So next on the agenda is the swim season starts this week. Well the competition part of it starts. Practice started several weeks ago. Anyway, as a kick off for the season it has been a standing tradition that we have a intra-squad meet on Monday. Therefore the night before the meet (in this case Fri night) the kids divide into the blue team and the white team. They go to each swimmers house and decorate there bedroom and there front yard. Here is Alyssa before she sets out to gather her team to start there decorating frenzy. She does make a very cute criminal don't you think.

Well, we have been decorated for 6 years straight between my two girls. Ohhh My Goodness what am I going to do next year when my yard and house is not decorated. Knowing me I will probably go out and TP my own house just because I will miss all this swim team fun.

Actually I think it really adds to my Halloween decor don't you?

Well, moving along Brandon had his last game of the season today (thank goodness). They are in the playoffs which I am happy for him but it can get nasty during playoff time.

This afternoon we rushed home from Brandon's game to get Lauren to a friends birthday party. They were to wear there Halloween costumes. She makes a cute little pirate. She had a blast. OHHH once again notice the Halloween decor in the background.
So I can't leave anyone out. Rachael is studying for mid-terms at BYU. Rach have fun and we are thinking of all the fun you must be having right now.- Love MOM

Happy Haunting

I started to post this several days ago and somehow became distracted. Haha that happens to me a lot. Anyway, the weekend hit and as you can see it's all down hill from there.
I just wanted to play with this stamp set. I used the "Color Me Monday" from two weeks ago. I just love these bright happy colors together, so I had to use them.
I have a friend that needs to be spooked so this card is for her.
The following products were used to create this card and can be ordered on my website:

Today is the day

Get ready for some HOME DECOR. Who said your pages can't make beautiful home decor pieces. Here is a page I made for my daughter to hang on her wall. The first photo is the page and then the second photo shows the page in a 12x12 frame. She loves it..........

Well today is the day that Chanse went into the MTC (missionary training center) to begin his two year mission for our church. It has been such an emotional week. Alyssa said goodbye to him last night. It was a very emotional evening for the two of them, but at the same time a very peaceful time. Today is not much better. We are all basket cases at our house.

All products are CTMH excent for the "Argentina stickers". I saw them at the last expo and knew I would be able to put them to good use.
