Our First Family Halloween

More trips down memory lane! We had fun with these costumes, Greg was almost a year old. I made him this cute tomato costume and then Matt and I were the farmers, lol. Guess I'd better get cracking and finish Greg's costume for this year. He's going to be a "landshark". Ha ha!

Here we are two years later. Little Jon is on the scene and we were able to come up with another family theme for costumes. Greg was SO cute in his lion costume and delighted in showing off his roar. Fun times!

Pumpkin Guts, Oh Ick!

Ha ha, this was such a funny moment. This was Greg's first real year of pumpkin carving (he was almost four). He was all excited until I cut open the pumpkin. When he saw what was inside he was horrified! This is a great example of a picture being worth a thousand words.

Stay tuned for more Halloween fun!

More Pumpkin Patch Fun

Look out, I have a whole pile of October layouts to share with you in the next few weeks! Greg was three on this trip (and it was over 80 degrees!) Fun was mostly had by all although baby Jon had his first freak- out fussy fit there in the parking lot. Talk about mommy stress! It was totally unexpected. Little did I know it was a harbinger of things to come …

Time for October layouts!

Holy smokes it's the middle of October already! Time sure flies by. At least I have my house all decorated for fall already. I love this time of year - I think fall is my favorite season. This is one of my all-time favorite photos of the boys and it always cracks me up. My boys are such goofballs and I am so thankful for them. How quiet and dull life would be without them around!

Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #9!

Yes, it's that time again. Time for another Scrapping Everyday Miracles challenge! We're only doing one challenge a month now so this one will be due on Oct. 25th. Be sure to join in for a chance at the great prize package! The theme is "Grandparents". I am fortunate that I grew up in the same area as my paternal grandparents and got to see them often (and still do!) I have many fond memories of childhood sleepovers and creek exploring. Here is my layout:

Go check out the great examples from the other DT members on the SEM blog and join in the fun!
