Happy Halloween

Took some quick pics of the girls with their pumpkin shirts on.
Check out these 2 pics.

Poor Abby. The tortured little sis. But that look she gave Natalie is priceless.

Also notice the excessive amount of drool and spit up that managed to cover Abigail's bib in the 10 minutes I took these pics..

Happy Halloween!

You Think She Was Having Fun??

Natalie got to play with her cousin today, and we need to do it more often because they have so much fun together! Just had to share these couple of pics.

And here's one of Abigail from Sunday.Is it just me, or does she always have this open mouth, "huh"? look on her face? heh heh heh.
I'm busy working on my November Sussie layouts tonight.. so short and sweet.
Hope you're having a good week!

Latest Page

I haven't done much scrapping this past week. However I did get this one page done for the SYTYCS contest. We had to use some other shape as our focus other than the usual circles, squares, rectangles. I was eliminated this round, but I can participate in this week's challenge for a chance at the Wild Card spot to get back in the competition.

We'll see what happens!

I have lots of pics from the weekend with a weekend update. Be back later with that!

Tate Farms

For the sake of documenting our lives, the good and the bad, I have to say that Miss. N is SO being the 2 year old that she is right now. We have been having nap issues this week. Or to be more accurate, lack thereof. I've tried laying down with her, staying in the room with her, nothing seems to work this week. And it's not like she doesn't need it. She feel asleep in the car on the way to church Wednesday, only to be woken up and in a BAD mood for Bible class. And today when I tried staying in there with her, she almost dozed off numerous times. When she realizes this she starts pulling/playing with her hair, putting her hand in her mouth and gagging herself, and any other thing she can come up with to wake herself up. So after 45 minutes of this I finally left her room, pulled the door shut where she can't open it, and I am listening to her cry and scream as I type.
Suggestions Welcome...

On to Tate Farms..

The weather was pleasant and Natalie had a blast. From picking out her pumpkin, to playing in corn, to swinging with Daddy. It was a hit. Miss Abby had no idea what was going on, but we had fun with her in the corn pit. :)

And then on the ride home.. a very tired girl trying to stay awake..

Look at Those Eyes

I've lost count of how many times I've said this. And I probably have multiple posts with this title, but honestly, they get me EVERY time.

I just downloaded all my pics from when we went to Tate Farms earlier in the week. Will have more for you shortly.

I Think She Likes It

Abigail had her first cereal tonight. She ate every bite and wanted more. I couldn't feed the second helping to her fast enough.

Natalie just had to have some too. And this is what she thought of it:

Creative Scrappers and Ice Cream

It's a new week over at Creative Scrappers. Here's what I did for this week's sketch. Had to document that wild hair of Natalie's. I'm sure this is one she'll love as a teenager!

This past week, for the YMBD contest, we had to do a page using the colors of our favorite ice cream. I chose Neapolitan, and made it through to the next round with this layout.

In other news it finally feels like fall. There was a nip in the air in our house this morning. Currently, Abigail is asleep laying on the couch bundled up, Natalie is sitting in my lap, and we're all bundled up with a blanket, and John is playing WoW all bundled up in a blanket. Maybe we should turn the heat on? :)
Happy Monday!

Busy Day

Everyone is our house slept until 7:00 this morning. LOVE that we are having days like that every once in a while. I had several photo shoots this morning, so I couldn't waste any time getting ready.

While I was getting ready, the girls watched cartoons.John and Natalie stayed home while Abigail and I went to take some pictures. I really think I'm going to enjoy this photography thing. To see some samples from today, you can go here.

After spending some time this afternoon editing some of the pics, I took Natalie outside to ride her new "bike" that she got from Uncle Alan and Aunt Kelli for her birthday. Abby and daddy, hung out inside.

Now I'm figuring out what we are gonna eat for supper and thinking I may scrapbook tonight.
Here's a couple of my latest pages.

Have a great weekend!

The highlight of our weekend was the family birthday party we had for Natalie. It was so much different than her first birthday because she actually knew what was going on. A couple of days before, I was talking to her about it and telling her that it was only a few more days until her party with cake and ice cream. And she said, "AND presents?" and I told her "yes, AND presents." :)

We started out the evening at our favorite pizza place. Between Natalie and Abigail, everybody stays pretty entertained.
Before heading back to the house we went to PaPa and MeMe's new house. This picture of N with Uncle A and Aunt K cracks me up. Love that she has her hand on Uncle A's knee.

We then headed back to our house for the real fun with presents. We laughed so much at her as she was opening her gifts. She got so excited jumping up and down. One present she even jumped up and down, threw her hand in the air making a fist and yelled, "I Love it!"

Notice the crossed arms in this one....

We also dressed her up in her Tinkerbell outfit, which was just way too cute. Birthdays with a 2 year old are definitely more fun.

And I had to do this layout just right after I took these pics of her on her actual birthday because I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.

We love you Natalie! So glad you had so much fun!
