Happy Birthday Poppie John

Happy Birthday John! Hope you are having a great day!
We are heading out to the mountains this week. Just love to see the leaves change colors and the cool crisp air. Gotta get packing!

Island Boy

I am missing all of the G-babies a lot today. Even though none of them are babies anymore I still refer to them as G-babies. G-babies is not an internet abbreviation. G is what they call me so, they are my G-babies. Sean was our first G-baby and this was his first year to play flag football. They live so far away now that we did not get to see any of his games and haven't been able to get any pictures yet. {Another good reason to scrapbook, you can always pull out your layouts when you are homesick to see family and friends.} This layout is from a trip we took last summer to Jekyll Island with Sean and Scott. Jekyll Island is one of Georgia's best kept secrets. It is a beautiful Island with very little commercialization. The kids always have a good time climbing on the huge oak trees,exploring the beach and watching the fiddler crabs.

Game Face

Scott is really doing well this year on his soccer team. He has gone to his brother's games for a couple of years now and even got to play some last year. The year he has put it all together and has his game face on!

Creature of Habit

I am such a creature of habit. I make my appointments around my work schedule which rarely changes, that is until this week. The new schedule for the next four weeks
has several changes on it all which conflict with my appointments! Ugh Oh, did I mention I work twelve hour shifts at night and that we have been crazy busy ? LOL
So much for a regular routine to keep your life running smoothly. Guess that is what happens when you work 'Shift Work'. Thanks Kenny

Halloween Card

Just love this new fence punch from Martha Stewart! The kitty pumpkin was from one of those tubs of foam stickers, since we are a kitty household this one worked 'purrfect'. The greeting is from the Stampin Up set 'A Haunting Halloween'. I borrowed the owl and tree punch while I was at Scrap a Palooza and I am not sure which company makes them. What have you been making this weekend?

Is that Gene Simmons on my porch?????? LOL We found this awesome Halloween Costume store in Valdosta over the weekend. Just could not come home empty handed! Anyway, I think he makes a fine addition to our front porch.

Ghosts and Goblins

Anybody in the mood for some Ghosts and Goblins? I am ! Have the urge to put out the Halloween decorations, hope to get to that this weekend. In the mean time here is a little goblin from a previous year. Like the eyeball? Easy to make; oval chip board painted white, round chip board painted green, regular size brad painted black. Glue round chip board to oval chip board, insert brad. Use red and black pins to freehand lines in eyes then glue black fibers around the edges and there you have it! I will pick a name for my RAK on Friday.
