Happy Fall

I have a great fall project for you. Honestly I thought I had made this up myself, turns out I didn't. So Here is my project.

I found this beautiful leaf at my mother-in-law's house. It was frame worthy. So that's what I did.

1. Found a black frame not being used

2. Found a piece of green scrapbook paper

3. Got out my Elmer's spray adheavsive

4. Sprayed the leaf - not the paper - this will leave your paper stained

5. Carefully and quickly layed the leaf on my paper.

6. Let dry

7. Framed my masterpiece.

So if you like this craft but can't find a leaf like this, I have another similar idea for you. While browsing a new blog I found this project idea here Good luck. I would love to see your finished project to.

Suggestions needed

I want a new camera. No I need a new camera. Mine is some cheap little Kodak camera that although takes ok pictures is just to slow for me. I want a nicer camera. I want a better camera. So I need your help. I love taking pictures of my girls, Me! (what, I have to update my facebook account!) lol, outside activities, vacations and such. present
I am not a photographer by any means but wouldn't mind taking some lessons.
So what type of camera would you recommend for me? If you have any suggestions please let me know. I probably won't get a new one right away but want to start pricing them for Christmas.
If you see any good deals you can also let me know. Thanks Team! :) Hope everyone has a great weekend planned.

I'm a Big Girl Now!!!

My Gracie is officially a big girl. She is completely out of diapers and pull ups. She has been potty trained for awhile but has still been wearing a diaper at night. But for the past week she has been accident free.
It's so cute to see her so excited when she wakes up are realizes she is dry.
Yay for my big girl. Only one left to potty train. My babies are getting so big.

As a reward for being an official big girl, Gracie has requested the "Chipmunks movie with the Girls." Aka the Squeakuel.

It's Official

It's Official

I am now a College Graduate! I can't tell you how excited I am! What makes it even better is that now my mom is too! How exciting right?

Just last night my mom went to pick up her diploma and have it framed. Mine is on order and will be sent to me in just a couple of weeks.

Oh and I finished my year on the Dean's list! Even better.

I want this desk...

Hello Blogger friends!

I write to you on a chilly 55 degree fall morning!!! :) I hope all is well.

I was reading a new blog the other day and came across a picture of something I used to own. This desk. ( not this one, a similar one)

How cute is this. I remember playing school with it. I loved that I could store my notebooks underneath. I loved it. My mom and dad must have bought me one when I was around 4 because I remember using it at the "old" house. Well now I want it back. I know that Gracie and Lilly would just love to use it for school or just pretend. So If you are in my area and happen to see one please let me know. I would even be willing to settle for the bigger desk shown in the picture below.

Her first hair cut

My first born is growing up and although it makes me happy it also makes me sad. On Saturday Gracie got her hair cut for the first time.

This is her before picture

She had beautiful hair. Everyone always complimented her on it. Look at those baby curls at the end. Aren't they just gorgeous. Well unfortunately that wasn't enough for me.

That "beautiful" hair of hers caused me lots of problems. She was constantly getting food, syrup,milk and all sorts of stuff in it. The main reason was because she hated for it to be brushed because the curls would always tangle up. She Hated me to wash it. She would just start screaming and crying and as a mother I just couldn't stand that.

So for everyone that knows hers, I am sorry we had to cut it but today when she woke up was the first day that she hadn't cried when I brushed her hair in 2 years. Matter of fact I don't even think she knew I brushed it. She was watching Mickey Mouse Club House. :)

Can you see this?

Hello blog friends. Please let me know if you can't read my new blog page. I have added a shabby background a long with some buttons. I checked it at work and it wasn't working and an error message kept coming up. Are you seeing everything ok? Please let me know. Thanks for stopping by.
