Happy Monday!

Good Monday Morning!!! :)

So we had a FUN FULL weekend!!! Saturday of course I posted, cookies, cleaning, soccer! (they lost! SIGH!!!!).. Sunday we went to Bellingham to see Jeremy (my cousin who had surgery on his leg AGAIN! he is doing GREAT and got out yesterday!) He and his mom Nancy are both relaxing at my moms house! :) Got to visit with everyone, our good friends came over too! it was nice to see them!! I got a CUTE photo of the kiddos but need to CLEAR it with Deanna it is ok to share! I think it is.. but I am gonna make you wait! LOL!! :)

So over at Moments 2 Remember there is a photo a day challenge using a word! Oct. 1st was "Spontaneous"
I remember WAY BACK WHEN.. I used to be spontaneous... now with life, age, kids, LOL! it seems I am not... so as we were driving home yesterday- I did something SPONTANEOUS!! When your heading to our friends house there is a BEAUTIFUL area full of trees, in the fall they are just STUNNING.. I have always and I mean ALWAYS... (ok for the last 7 years!) wanted to stop.. never have.. so yesterday I DID! I got some GREAT photos of the kids! and when we were done I said THANK YOU!!.. Amanda then said NO MOM>.... THANK YOU!!! hee hee! She loves to play in the leaves and we dont have many here... so it was a GREAT moment for us all!!!
Here is one I added a fall frame to, then a slide shoe of 10 more!! :) I have a few others but you gotta wait for the layout! HA HA!!! :)

and here is the slide show-

I am so gonna print these up this week, and SCRAP them.....

I also finished up my altering of the container I showed in the post below... this was the whip cream container, not the bucket! I bet you could have figured that out! HA HA!!! I think next time I may paint them and do less paper, since the bottom tapers it was hard to keep the paper straight at the bottom.. but I think I hid it pretty well... and it was full of cookies for my mom! I am sure she didnt mind, and I KNOW my brother never even looked at it, other then inside to find the cookies! :)

I also worked on these CUTE little treat containers! I got the smaller MM containers, but what I didnt do... thought about it.. but didnt do it! Was WASH them out first! Oh my! Luckily I only did one... but they stick.... I didnt want the candy to be GROSS! LOL!! so I am washing them today! and I need to figure out a way to adhere my cute embellie my glue ran and messed it up.. darn glue! HA HA!!! :)
So today I want to work on that, clean, do laundry, and scrap.. hmm think I can do it all!! :) I hope so.. I am gonna begin working in my scrappy room... I am scrappen in the hall now! I am SURE STEVE loves that! NOT..... :)

Well if you have made it this far in my novel of a post! THANKS! If not.. that is ok too! But then you wont see this cuz your not all the way down here! :)
Have a GREAT day.... off to create..oh I mean clean! :)

    Hey Beth! I was just visiting Mara's blog and thought I would pop over to see what you have been up to lately. I miss you and everyone over at IBSS. Sorry I haven't been around there lately. Just busy and doing a lot these days. But I made it on 2 DT's at the same time which was totally unexpected. But I am up for the challenge. So I hope all is well with you and your family. These pictures are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! I can't wait to see what you make with them.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT day!!
Happy Holidays!!!
