Photo Shoot

My sister in law is just learning how to take photos and become a photographer so she seemed like the natural choice to take our family pictures this year. We decided to do them up at Lairamont Manor very neat landscaping and areas for pictures. To our dismay we showed up to a wedding... on a Sunday... who gets married on a Sunday?? So we went down to Fairhaven park instead. It was frickin freezing!! I think we got some good shots despite the fact that we were frozen to death. I can't beleive she was able to hold the camera still!! These two plus the one at the top of my blog were done by Jen. Thanks Jen for the great pictures!!!

Tag again... yeesh

So I was sitting here all nice and quiet and thought I would catch up on my blog reading little did I know what Holly had in store for me I've been tagged AGAIN!! This time the instructions were to drop what I was doing and take a picture of the area where I blog... This is my office it is where I spend a lot of my time. If I am not at the messy computer desk (gosh I really need to clean it up) than I am directly behind there at my craft table working on projects there. Now I have to say in my own defense I just completed a craft fair and there for my room is a total pig sty and hasn't been cleaned yet. It drives my husband crazy who gets a small little desk to the right of this picture and that is his space to work in... I have erupted all over the room!! The second half to this fun little game was to take a picture of your living room.... This is my living room! Now I like Traci got very lucky because I happend to host a baby shower at my house a few days before so the living room was fairly clean! Yeah!! We just got the new furniture you see in the picture about a month ago so the living room tends to stay pretty clean for the most part. We have new very strict living room rules that must be abided by!! So now here is the fun part I get to tag 3 people to play the game so I tag...
1.) Jennifer of Snapshots of a life
2.) Samantha of My Life as I know it
3.) Amanda of The JAMPAC Clan
Have fun!!!

I've been tagged

My friend Holly had a fun post on her blog and I couldn't resist the temptation to play along. The game is to go to your 4th photo folder and pick the 4th picture and blog about it so here it goes. If you have read this post and you are a blogger you have now been tagged!!!

This is Lena and her friend Taylor at their other friend Ashli's birthday party. We went to Langs Horse and Pony farm in Mt.Vernon. It was cold as Ashli's birthday is in March and the parents leading the horses were given big rubber boots. Thank God you should have seen the mud!! We had about 15 kids on horses and went on a trail ride through the woods. It was really fun! The girls had a great time!!

Craft Fair

This past weekend my mother in law, sister in law and I participated in the Bellingham Covenant craft show. We have done this for 5 years now. This year I decided to try something new and Barb and I put together a ton of handmade cards. To our suprise they sold like crazy!! Yeah!!! So now I will spend the rest of the next year coming up with designs and making new cards. We're going to try and have a card making day once a month to stay on top of the game! It's fun to have your stuff sell and to realize that you are not the only one that likes your work....

Happy Halloween!!

Halloween has come and gone again!! We had a wonderful time.. we first went to Grandma and Grandpas so we could see them and cousin Carley..we also needed to wish Aunt Jen a very Hallow Birthday! My sister in law was born on Halloween! We trick or treated up the street to Great Grandma Sadies house and then did the neighborhood around there for a bit. We then hopped in the car and headed to the Eldridge Neighborhood. These people know how to do Halloween up right. Almost every house had trick or treats available and a ton of them actually decorated their houses with lights and scary things.. there was even a guy on stilts standing on a corner dressed up as Frankenstein.. he was like 8 feet tall it was SO cool! Over all my kids took in a haul and had a very wonderful night!! Until next year Happy Halloween everyone and Happy Birthday Jen!!!
