The Pumpkin Patch

I *heart* the pumpkin patch!!!! This is one of my favorite family traditions! The kids love it also, although I am sure they would have preferred that I left the camera at home. I am such a mamarazzi! They'll thank me for it when they are older! Not only is our favorite pumpkin patch fun, but they are cheap (12 pumpkins for $40.00, corn maze for $5.00)!

Can you tell by the look on their faces that the last thing they want to do is pose for a picture in front of a dumb inflatable pumpkin?

Happy Birthday Nick!!

Yesterday, my little baby. Today, a young man!! I can't tell you enough how much I love this kid!!! He is amazing! He really can do anything he sets his mind to! What a privilege it has been to be his mommy! I am so proud of this boy!!

In homage of the birthday boy, here are eleven fun facts about Nick!

*Baseball stud
*Straight A student
*Voracious reader
*Super affectionate
*Good heart
*Life of the party
*An awesome brother! Cuddles with Jack when Jack is sleepy.
*Stinky bedroom (darn socks!)
*Too smart for his own good!!

He requested his birthday treat be brownies with peppermint ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Sooooooooo Yummy!!!!! He couldn't decide if he wanted a birthday party or money. In the end, he chose money. So shopping this weekend it is!

I love this kid!! Happy Bday Nick!

Getting My Artsy Fartsy on!

It's that time of year (October-December) when I craft. Today, I finished a belated birthday gift for Nick's teacher. Inspired by this, I used the "explore.learn.grow" digi kit by Sahlin Studio, ribbon, and a craft box. All the goodies inside the craft box were from Walmart. Every teacher needs chocolate and soda money so I made sure to add those. I think I might need to make one for myself.
