Yesterday Jilian and I went on our first MOPPETS outing to Fir Point Farms. We enjoyed visiting with our friends, playing in the hay maze, pumpkin patch and eating yummy fresh made donuts!
I have entered the world of blogging! My purpose? To stay connected to friends and family and invite you into my world. A world filled with fun, tears, laughter, excitement, elation, disappointment and all the blessings of being a mother and wife.

This morning as we were heading out the door to take Grace to school, Jilian HAD to have her backpack too, just like sissy. Then as we were getting in the car "I go school too". Once we got to school Jilian kept saying (while tugging on her car seat straps) "mommy out, I school". When did this happen? It feels like it was just yesterday that we brought Jilian home from the hospital, now she wants to go to school?! On the tough days, I can't wait for these days to be over, but on the good days it makes me SO sad that they already, almost over! Just a little reminder to myself, that these days...moments... are precious and they will be over before I know it.

I decided to make some wooden block art to frighten all by saying BOO.
First I started with a piece of scrap wood (good thing my husband is a carpenter!) and with his help I learned to use a skill saw and cut the wood in thirds.
vintage Halloween postcards. I just happened to have a sheet of Halloween paper that was made from vintage Halloween postcards. I picked my favorite images and covered the front of each block. The strips of paper I used to cover the sides of each block. Once the paper was mod podged on, I embellishment with card stock stickers to spell out BOO, the ribbon I won from Heidi is tied in a bow on top of each block and a craft wouldn't be complete without a little bling.

It may be 9:06pm on Sunday night, but I am in heaven! Both girls are sleeping in their beds, Jeremy is gone for the night and I.... am alone, in my new craft room about to work on my craft for The Monthly Craft Challenge. I even get to play on the computer without anyone making me feel guilty. Ahh..the little things! I hope you have a WONDERFUL week!
