Pumpkin carving 101..riles and danny style
Chris and the kids carved pumpkins this weekend. Riles carved hers on Saturday, sorry no pics of that one..I was scrapping. She just couldn't wait. It is a tradition she usually does with her papa(blackie), but he has been sick with a nasty respiratory thing..that he caught from her. :) So, danno and Chris carved his Sunday night, I got pics. Danny is such a thoughtful little man. He let riles help.
Here is the night in pictures.

Getting together with the girlies..and then a potluck.

I am going scrapping today with my girls, Fickel and Mindy. I have such an amazing friendship with both of them. It still humbles me when I think of how they are there for life. Thank you girls. I could never have gotten through this past week without your support. Love you.

We haven't been friends long, just 3 short years, but I feel you have been here forever. Thank you for that.

So, we are packing our things, heading to Bellevue, and just scrapping away. The store there is small, but has an amazing crop room. Michaels is just around the corner if we need something she doesn't have.

I will leave early tonight to go to a family potluck at deanne's. I will get to see Turtis, Stacy, and Fay tonight. I love my Fay. I cannot imagine going through what they went through and are still facing everyday. I can't. But I know with the love and support from most of our family, they will get through this.
So, that is my day. I am finishing a christmas present, putting the pics in ron's journey book, and then scrapping my kiddos.
I will also try to talk fickel into doing a family photo shoot while the leaves are pretty. We don't have one. I want pictures of me and my kids, since I am the one who always takes the pictures (chris is intimidated by my camera :)

have a great weekend!

Sweet, Sweet Baby....
You will never know how much you were loved, treasured,and admired. You were the strongest person I knew. You went through so much in your short time here on earth, and you did it all with a smile on your face. I will miss you Hadleigh Ann. Kiss my daddy for me and tell him I love him so.
I love you big girl,
aunt whimp

I had the opportunity to buy a turtle from Craigslist (via a teacher from school). I said YES! She assured me there isn't too much care needed..just clean water and someone to play with him. So, I brought him home today. The kids are absolutely thrilled, and have been observing him all night long. We have taken him out and played with him and he is now tucked into his aquarium where he can swim and relax.

Here are some pictures..
