Oh Joanna! You are too funny! We took your tips...headed out to the same spot that you recommended. In fact I recognized the same log from YOUR BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS CARDS!!! Mark and I headed out with our tripod and tried just about every pose we could think of. Also, I must say that I have some PS Actions that I bought and they really enhance the photos!!!
Tiana....your Hailey is absolutely adorable!!! Her costume and matching bag just rock! I love the idea of using the premade bag from the craft store! Joanna- you must bring out the creativity in people! It is simply amazing! I have enjoyed this Halloween season so much more than in the years past, that I don't know why I didn't get into more before. (OK, maybe working full time, but...) Anyway, I love your spirit and truly is infectious!!! As you can see....
Joanna, Of course you can link/post! I must say that we have had a ball this season preparing for Halloween...from decorating the house, hosting our Scrapbook group and then of cours, the planning, preparing for and the making of costumes! Working this weekend with my parents was just icing on the cake, as they say! The kids are absolutely crazy excited with their costumes! I think Mia would wear it everyday until Halloween, if I let her! She just loves the hair! That was "Mimi Magic"! Max was just a stroke of genius on my mom and Mark's parts. Mark came up with the old rotting butterfly house in the backyard, as the basic structure. My mom made it smaller and we even cut off the existing door for the eye hole! The hair just makes it, if you ask me! That was a bit of my mom's magic....1 inch foam cut into strips, spray painted and hot glue gunned into place! As for Miles, he just loves it. Total team effort...I did the shoes and mom did the hat. She amazes me...never a patter! I am so excited and Joanna, I think you are right. After this year, I think they will be the ones demanding "homemade" and throwing out the magazines! Thanks for sending my the Halloween bug!!!!
So sad that we missed the Waterslides! Looks like you all had a the pictures!!!

Joanna, Thanks for the comment! It was hard getting "back in the saddle" of blogging again after such a long hiatus. And as for Mia's shoes, I have just one work of advice if they are in Ally's future....SOCKS!! Mia has taken to no sock and man do her feet/shoes STINK!!!

Aby, I am so on the same page as you! For Mother's day I told my husband that I wanted a garden in the backyard because I wanted to eat healthier and I wanted the kids to eat more veggies. Two months later, our garden is in full bloom. I recently read an article in the BH&G magazine about canning. My mother in law will be here in 2 weeks to help teach me and the kids how to actually do it. In the meantime, I am sneaking veggies into our meals (Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious inspred me). You truly inspire me and I imagine that your life is much like I aspire mine to organized house that runs relatively smoothly, eating cleanly and time for you. Keep the insprations coming! Thanks, Michele

We spend this 4th of July with Family. My grandma is 83 years old and doesn't get out much, so we all went to spend the holiday with her. It was also the first time that all 7 of the cousins were together on this holiday (ages 2-8). It was fun..sparklers, fireworks and family!!!

Cute suits! But is it really that time of year already??? Ugh! Lots of goodies! Your garage sounds like my kind of "Disneyland."

Okay..the prizes are amazing, but this sharing of "likes" is kind of fun, too. As a teacher and mother of 3, I don't have much time to read for ME. Having had said that, I would have to the Twilight series. Seriously, I don't have much time to read, but I have read all 4 books...TWICE! I just LOVED them!
