Happy Halloween from a Heffalump!

We were lucky enough to be invited to go TorTing with our wonderful friends, Tracie and Michelle. And someone I hope I get a chance to know better, Jennifer. We went to the town square out where Tracie lives. We were lucky enough that the rain held off long enough for the kiddos to get some goodies for their pumpkins. Miss K is not really too sure what to think about the whole Halloween thing. She pretty much stayed in her wagon and munched on animal crackers and pretzel. And the bad mommy that I am...I only took 3 photos of her! It was hard trying to handle her, the wagon and the camera and I just forgot! So, tonight we are meeting Daddy for dinner in Cool Springs and then we are going to the mall for some TorTing. Then we will hit Publix and then head home. I just don't want Miss K out in the rain.

Not spoiled, just high maintenance

Yep...that is chocolate frosty on her onesie. She wasn't feeling too good today and wouldn't eat anything. She took one bite of Daddy's vanilla frosty and then came to get a bite of my chocolate frosty. She spit it out. Maybe she no likey chocolate? If that is so, I think that she might have been switched at birth. Her mommy thinks chocolate is a food group all by itself!

Its The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

This is my all time favorite Charlie Brown "movie". I even had the book with the tape that read that book. I listened to it every night before I went to sleep...even in the summer. Love it! I can't wait for Miss K to be old enough to enjoy this with me!

I do actually scrapbook!

I am always talking about going to classes and crops, but I never really post anything. I know a lot of you are thinking...does she actually scrapbook? I do...ocassionally! So, I signed up to take an on line class and one of the first things was to decorate the cover of the album. I waited until the last minute to even start on mine. (I was in bed sick all day yesterday) So, the pressure was really on! I also decided to combine my class with a challenge from one of my yahoo groups. The challenge is called "Use Your Stash". Let's be honest here...I could probably compete in this challenge for well over a year and not run out of stuff! So, I used an SEI album that I've had sitting around forever. I think is it an 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, but I am not 100% sure. Paper is Scenic Route and Bazzill that is from Jenni Bowlin's April kit. (I am going to use all of the SR paper from this line to complete the album...all of which I already own.) The stickers are DB that I bought the last time HL had their 1/2 off stickers. Ribbon is from I have no idea where...maybe Joann's? And the H is one of the Lil' Davis chipboard letters that I got on clearance at HL. See...everything I used...I already had!! WOOHOO! I am planning on making everything in this album with stuff I already have. NO NEW STUFF!!!!

I don't know why the strip of Bazzill looks like it doesn't match the PP because it does!

What weighs 28 pounds, 7 ounces and is 30.2 inches long?

MY DAUGHTER! She's getting sooooo big! This is a common sight in our house right now. She is all about chairs and having her babies close by at all times. She is watching her DoodleBops DVDs and baby sitting her babies.

Another word

I was sitting on the sofa knitting a scarf for my mom and I hear Miss K saying something. I look up and she is walking across the room carrying a ball in each hand say..."booooooooooooooow". I started giggling because it sounded so funny. About 5 minutes later she was playing with something else and I asked her to bring me a ball. She ran over and grabbed one of them and brought me a "booooooooooooow"

Then, later that afternoon, I went to put some towels up that I had folded. I came back to this.... I have no idea how she got in there. I know that she couldn't get out. What you can't see is that her monkey, Carmen, is also in with her. Speaking of Carmen, we had bedtime without her last night. I was drawing Miss K's bath water. She had followed me in there. I turned around just in time to see her dunking Carmen. I asked her if she was giving Carmen a bath. She laughed dunked her again.

Today has been a strange day. She is sick still. But, she dragged her rocking chair into the middle of the living room, climbed up into it with her milk and watched Handy Manny for 15 minutes straight.

Okay...I am off to put Miss K down for her morning nap. Mommy is getting a morning nap today as well. I think I am coming down with whatever she has. Lots of fun.

Have an awesome day.

Lots to blog about

I've got a lot to blog about...let me see if I can get it all into one post.

*Miss K has a new word...SHOES. And let me tell you...that kid loves shoes. She wants you to put her shoes on her first thing in the morning. She walks around in a cloth diaper and a pair of Nike Shox in the morning...nothing else.

*Cloth Diapering. In the beginning I HATED it. I was ready to buy a vat of vasoline and just coat her up and keep using the disposable diapers. Then I remembered how much I spent on getting all the stuff. So, we kept doing it. Brian was a lot better about it than I was. I slowly started to not hate it. It is a lot of laundry, but I've sort of got that worked out now. Then I started to like cloth diapering. It's cute watching her walk around in her little cloth diaper. And 10 of the ones that we have are colored, so sometimes she has a hot pink bottom and sometimes it is yellow. Now I am loving cloth diapering. I wish I had started this from the beginning. I LOVE the Fuzzi Bunz diapers that we are using. We are still working on some issues with the nighttime diapers. But overall...It's great. Cloth diapering away from home has been a little interesting. I got some strange looks the other day while I was changing her in the ladies room at the mall. I am on the look out for some more diapers. I only have 13 right now. I would like to have about 24 so that I am not always worried about the laundry!

**Project - I actually did a project while I was at the last super crop at Scrap It. Three of the same thing to be exact. I took a class with Amber McDonald and we made these really cute tag books. I loved the way it turned out, so I decided to do something similar. I made a little book that was called "A Year Of K". I did a photo on one side of each tag and then on the back I wrote a couple of things that happened that month. I made one for my mom, my inlaws and my dad and step-mom. So far, I've given the books to my mom and my mother in law. They love them. I think they are pretty cute. I am getting ready to start a project for a friend of mine. I have all the pages sketched out, so it should be pretty easy. I am making the pages 6X6. I think I am going to go ahead and make 3 or 4 of them at the same time. I am thinking ahead for gifts!

Okay...I can't get it all in one post and Blogger is giving me problems. I'll have to post the rest of it in another post!
