These pictures make me laugh for a few different remember lining up with my cousins in front of the fire place and having our pictures taken...{it takes me back}!  Two... all of these pictures show the personality of each child so well...Bird and Luke are kind of a spaz and can't stay still for too long {you can tell by the blurriness of their hands} and then there is Beanie{aka lil' mama} who is so patient, calm, and sweet!  

And of course because Luke doesn't care too much for Lucy...this makes her even more fascinated with him and she is trying to give his iron man mask a kiss {second pic}...hilarious!  

great memories...thanks for getting these pictures of the kids Heather!

Hope you had a great Halloween!

Pardon the off center wonderful sis~n~law is working on my blog playing around with different designs {gosh I love her!} are some pictures from our weekend... we carved a pumpkin, girls went to a birthday/costume party, made yummy chocolate chip cookies, hubby made homemade chicken noodle soup {stock and everything!}, and I have been sewing my little heart out getting ready for the craft fair this Saturday.  I can't believe that it's already here...I'm so excited to see how my sewing does and see if people like it!  Keep your fingers crossed that we do well!

Will keep you posted!
 Driving home Friday I decided to stop by the Grocery Outlet and check their pumpkin prices {we needed a large pumpkin to carve since the little ones the girls got on their field trips were too tiny} my surprise they were super duper cheap...$2.99 for any size pumpkin...and these things were huge.  I will definitely go there again next year!
 You are only able to see the icky side of the pumpkin...the front was perfectly shaped!

 Somewhere I had seen that a drill/hole saw was used to make perfect circles in a hubby being his wonderful self got out the drill and went to town.  It looks wonderful and it was really easy!

 I love my beanie...she can never seem to keep her eyes open when a picture is taken...cracks me up every time!

WARNING...this is a long and random post...

These picture were taken pre~tummy bug...we had no idea that a bad 24 hour flu bug was out there!  So far Bird is the only one who has gotten it...fingers crossed the rest of us will be ok!  
{be sure to wash your hands!}

 Beanie loves her bubble gum!

 I have made a few changes to the craft/guest bedroom.  I have been dying to paint a room a soft shade of the craft room it was!  I took a trip to our local Sherwin Williams {I have tried every brand of paint and hands down they have the best paint...even better than Benjamin Moore!} 

The color I {really Allison} finally decided on was Topsail

I used their new Duration paint and it covered the walls in one coat!  I'm so happy with how it turned out!  
It is my happy space!
 I'm also working on a photo wall above the bed...I purchased a few paint samples while at the paint store {they are giant sample cans...score} I went with colors I would have never dreamed of using {Begonia and Luau Green}...and go figure it is looking amazing!  I had a ton of frames that were just sitting in drawers so it was great to get them out and not have to buy anything!  I just finished the wall last night and all that's left to do is add in some of the girls' art work and photos...then I will show you the final product!

 A few weeks ago Beanie was begging us to put the bunk beds back that the girls are a little older we thought it would be ok.  

They have had so much fun playing and sleeping!  This was a random photo that I had... so I will take a couple better pictures of their finished room...I think it turned out great!
