Another Use for Post It Notes

So, about a month ago Malia and I were marking pages in a catalog with strips of Post It Notes......I obviously took a break to do something else for a few minutes and came back to find this:

Luckily I didn't leave her alone with a big fat SHARPIE! :)

Happy Wednesday!!

Happy 18th Birthday NICK!

Friday greetings to you!

Today is my nephew Nick's 18th birthday! I can't believe it............It doesn't seem like that long ago since I was 18. (but I guess it has been awhile!) If I remember right I was in my Business Law class at OSU when he was born.

Here is the birthday boy -- (picture taken at Alex's 2nd birthday back in March....hence the hat)

Name: Nick
Relationship: Nephew
Birthdate: November 14th, 1990

We hope you enjoy your day!!!

Holiday Marketplace Dec 5-6...DON'T MISS IT!

I have been a bad blogger lately. I'll admit it. :) I have caught a cold and have been super tired these past few days. Right before it really comes on I always wonder why am I so tired??? Then the next morning I I'm all plugged up, sore throat and achy. Hopefully it will pass soon. I **need** to get working on some "crafty goodness" for a couple of upcoming holiday bazaars. The biggest one is this one:

(Isn't that the cutest ad??)

So, if you are in the Portland, OR area Dec 5th & 6th.....I highly urge you to check it out. I was just a "shopper" last year, but am lucky enough this time to be a vendor. (Thanks Jos!)

Lots of quality gifty items will be YOU should GO!

The other bazaar I'm doing is for a women's luncheon (of course on the same day), but I don't have to be at that one. The big "Crafty Ladies" holiday sale we usually do has been put on hold this year. Which is probably good for me this time around....

Well, we are off to a play date this morning. Gotta love holidays! :) Thanks to all the Veterans for their service to the USofA!
Have a great day~

Trick or Treat

Whew! October is over. I love October, but by the end I am totally pooped!

Last week was Malia's birthday, Rourke's the next day, followed by Halloween the next. Last night we had a family birthday party for all the October birthdays in my family (which also included my Mom, Dad, and niece Kelli)... Those pictures are still on my camera, so I don't have any to share today.
On Friday night we took the kids Trick or Treating around the neighborhood. Ella stayed home with Dad and gave out candy to the trick or treaters. I had a ballerina costume for her, but we never ended up getting her in it because there was so much drama getting Malia ready. Ugh. Five year old girls................a precursor to teen years I'm sure. Anyway, the weather was perfect and the kids had fun. Alex was a little freaked out by a kid with some red mask. I guess it was something from Star Wars? Of course we were on the same path, so we saw him the whole night.

Here are Alex & Malia right after we got ready. I think Malia was a little irritated with the pictures and just wanted to get going....the next picture is when we were actually **READY** to walk out the door. This girl has more energy than all of us combined!

My mom came with us, which was a fun treat. After the kids went to bed we had some yummy apple a little too much and felt totally sick. :) Oops!

Got to get going.........
