October 365 2013

October has been a whirlwind of a month.  It's been a month since Riley joined our family and our lives have been the better for her.


It's been a great month!  Looking forward to November!

Halloween 2013

After not having a normal Halloween here the last two years, this was going to be our year!  Sadly, I petered out on the decorations but we still got our candy on!

Marissa  originally wanted to be Katniss from the Hunger Games, but ended up being a Pirate.  She looked great!  

Gianna had her heart set on being a Spooky Spirit and luckily found both her costume AND awesome boots!  It's scary how cute she was!    


Gianna's class party was fun and quick.  We gave out goody bags with wax moustaches that everyone in her class is crazy for....Gianna decided to wear hers during the parade.

Joe volunteered to stay home with Riley and pass out candy, so it was a Girl's Only sort of Trick or Treating.  

I chased two pirates, a vampire and a spirit around the neighborhood.


So happy the reported rain held off, though we did feel some raindrops before the girls declared they were all so tired and we headed home to sort & trade our loot.

Hope everyone had a fun, safe and Happy Halloween!

Project Life 2013 Week: THIRTY

With the end of the year rapidly approaching, I figure, I better start sharing the weeks I have done. I'm currently working on our August trip to Disney so that takes awhile, but I'll get there! 

Week 30 was a standard week around here. Not much happened with us that was super exciting, really. I guess the most exciting thing was the birth of the Royal baby. 

The top pocket is a flip up card with some funny tweets and announcements  about the royal baby. 

This half of the week had more filler cards.  Fun to do, as simple as they are. 

Trying to be better about my schedule during the day. Not much time to dilly dally, so I hope to get more blogging done on a regular basis. (I may have said that before, but I'm trying!) LOL!

Project Life 2013 Week: TWENTY-NINE

Time gets away from me too much lately. I've got a few weeks of Project Life to share, but as always, finding time/remembering to take pics messes me up.

Week 29 is a combination of a lot of pics with a handful of filler cards. It works for me. 

I had a few pics from Tuesday that I wanted to include so I stretched it out between the middle 3x4's to the bottom 4x6, used the pink tags to make them flow a little.

The second half has more filler cards but they show some movies we went to see so I don't consider them true "filler" cards. The bottom left pocket is a collage I made on my iPhone with the "PicFrame" app, it's also a flip card (sorry no pic) with a few more pics. I did the journaling on the side since I somehow printed the collage a little smaller than 4x6, and didn't want to re-print it (same for the pic on the right).

And there's Week 29, just as we're starting Week 42! I'm right on top of things around here! LOL!

Our New Puppy!!

Yes, that's right!  We broke down and got a PUPPY!  She has us all wrapped around her little paw already.  Just call me a sucker, because I am.

This picture does not do her justice. She had the sweetest disposition. She just loves people! 

Her name is Riley and she's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She's 12 weeks old and a bundle of energy!  She's already my baby!
