Happy Halloween!

Our town actually had trick-or-treat last night (and the weather was perfect!!). Here are some pictures of my "little monsters":

Evan (aka Frankenstein):

All little E talked about was being "black Spiderman" for Halloween...unfortunately they didn't have a costume to fit him, so we settled for red (and he was scared of his mask!):

My boys:

By 7:30 p.m., this was E-Man...he was worn out (best night's sleep he's had in weeks!!):

Also, be sure to check out Becky Higgins blog (one of my favorite scrapbookers). My Christmas project I made is pictured!!! It always excites me to see MY NAME on a "famous" blog!!!!

Update on Easton and football

Monday was Easton's surgery. He ended up having to get his second set of tubes, along with the removal of his adenoids and tonsils. He is doing much better today - you can tell when his pain medicine begins to wear off - he gets mean and cranky! He was such a trooper (had to buy him 2 new wrestlers on the way home!!). The doctor said he has permanent hearing loss in his left ear - we will be getting a hearing test soon. I thought now would be a perfect time to lose the pacifier, but he wants it all the time!

This photo was from last week...

...and this one on Tuesday at lunch - he was hungry, yet didn't feel good and got very upset with me!

Also, Evan is now done with football!! Here are a few pictures from his last game (green team, #25):

Holiday Project

This project was recently on Becky Higgins blog - I immediately had to make one for myself! The one with gold ribbon is for my Grandma for Christmas - she doesn't read my blog, so I'm safe! This was a quick, fun, and inexpensive project! The frame and glass pebbles are from Target...the paper is new from Basic Grey! Here is Grandma's:
I added rub-ons to the paper circles...
A close-up of the glass pebbles:
The frames are awesome! (Sorry, Becky, I had to have the ones just like yours!!)

Quick Update

Today was Evan's last football game (I will post pictures later) - I think we are all glad the season is done: three nights of practice each week and a game on Saturday makes for a tired 8-yr old and a grumpy mom!! Now we move onto basketball!! I don't remember starting sports this young...blows me away how much there is for our kids to be involved in!

Easton will be having surgery on the 22nd - tonsils/adenoids. We are so looking forward to a happy, healthy toddler! He has been such a trooper through all this...he may need some new wrestlers when this is all said and done!

I am suppose to be at a scrapbooking weekend right now, but being the great mom that I am, I got up at 6:30 this morning to drive an hour home to see Evan's last game (I wouldn't have missed it for anything). Now, off to a Bead Retreat, then back to scrapbooking. I will post pictures of my finished projects later - I hope to get more done toady than last night! Dawn couldn't believe I was going to be at 11:30! (By the way - Dawn, I am SO glad you came to scrap with us!! It has been great catching up with you and I hope to stay in touch better!!!)

Well, stay warm today, and GO BOILERS!!!

Long overdue...

Sorry, I've been an extremely bad excuses, just swamped right now!

A couple of photos of my obsessive compulsive son...this is his new "thing" - not sure if it feels good in his sore ears to lay on the air conditioning vent, or what, but when I can't find him, this is normally where he is "hiding out"! Too cute!

This one sure keeps me on my toes!!! He is going to be having surgery soon, so I haven't tried too hard to take away that ugly thing hanging from his mouth!!
