Why I've Been Missing...

Good morning to you all!

I've been a bit MIA in the blogging world recently and I just wanted to drop in quickly and share a bit of what I've been up to.   Boy it is HARD to come up with time and ideas for everyday posts - I have a TON of respect and admiration for you ladies that do!

We've had alot going on here as usual.  Has not left me with any time to be creative or crafty or decorative or really in any way interestingBut it's been fun.   Halloween, Birthday Parties and Operation Closet Cleanout.

Halloween day started with a little pumkin carving.....  With a semi-tutorial.  

First, survey your pumpkin carefully....

Not sure what these two were waiting for the pumpkin to DO, but they did spend quite a few minutes simply staring at it.

Next, have the resident Artiste work on building a template for cutting....

Not bad!

Now, hand the carving knife to somebody above the age of 6.   Hubby will have to do..

This part always gets a big "EEEWWWW...

Almost done!

They look pretty proud of themselves, no?    It was a fun way to spend Halloween afternoon.  And yes, that is still the same cabinet that I blogged about HERE.   Still outside on Halloween, waiting patiently for her turn. 

Then all the prep work it takes to turn an adorable six year old into....

Ummm,   a child bride?!  

It was a tiny bit creepy somehow seeing my daughter as a bride, but she LOVED this custome and looked beautiful!  

We all had a really fun night Trick or Treating.   The dog stayed home this year and the weather could not have been more beautiful!   We even had a big old creepy moon.

Next came a family birthday party and another kids birthday party the following day.    If anybody is looking for a quiet, relaxing loud, obnoxious and smoky start to their Sunday morning, why don't you try taking 15 kids out for Cosmic Bowling at 10 AM??  

They did have a really good time and the party went well.   I couldn't get many good pics due to the darkness, strobe lights and fog, but who doesn't like a little darkness, strobe lights and fog to really get their morning going?   ;)

Here is the cake that Miss Princess Six Year Old Child Bride chose..

I cannot even blame the color on bad lighting.  It really was this green.  

I did work on a couple of projects, nothing just seems to be quite finished yet!
I'll have a post up soon about the little side table I refinished and as soon as Operation Closet Cleanout is underway, I've got some BIG plans for our dining room!
Thanks for stopping by!

Smiles and Hugs,

  1. Don't you hate when life gets in the way of blogging? ; ) You post when you can, nobody says it has to be every day. How cute your daughter looks in her costume ~ I'll bet she got a lot of oohs and aahs! Hope she had a great birthday; 6 is such a cute age.


What do you have to say for yourself???
