Fall is here.....my most FAVORITE time of the year! I love the cooler weather, the changing leaves, buying sweaters and new jeans, and picking pumpkins. But my most favorite thing about fall is HALLOWEEN!!!
The girls and I decorated the house a little bit a week or so ago, but there is still much to do. I just love opening up the totes that I store my Halloween decorations in.....I always forget what fun decoration I have in there! Ron and I will go this weekend to get a few hay bales and corn stalks and decorate the front porch...a tradition that we have had every year in this house. We also hope to go pumpkin picking, do a corn maze, and maybe a fun hayride if the weather holds out. However.....there is another big event going on this weekend that we have to prepare for.................Stephanie's 7th birthday!!!!!
She is so excited! I can't believe how fast she is growing up......I wish I could slow it down just a tiny bit.
We are having her party at our house this year, and we let her invite 10 friends to come play games and have cake with us. She decided to have a Hello Kitty themed party and picked out a butterfly pinata (which we filled to the brim with candy tonight) along with party bags to hold all the loot that they get when it rains sugar!!!
One of the things that she asked for as a gift for her birthday was a beta fish. We have purchased the bowl, the rocks, the food, and some fake plants....now all we need is the fish! Hopefully we can make a pet store run this weekend and bring him home to his new family (and hopefully we can keep Jennifer away from the poor unsuspecting little guy).
Speaking of Stephanie, she lost another tooth at school last week!!! She came home with it in a little yellow envalope straight from the nurses office. What an honor it is to bleed in front of your friends in first grade.......I remember that feeling well (except mine were from bloody knees, not teeth. I was always falling down and busting up my poor pitiful knees!!!!)
Also, I promised a pic of Jennifer's new "big girl" earrings.....here she is modeling them for all to see.....
And lastly, a layout and a card that I did for the September issue of Scrapbook News and Review:
Here's wishing everyone a fantastic fall!!!! Thank you for stopping by!
