thursday; lovely, busy, thursday

thursdays are out of control for me, i won't get home til late and have mucho paperwork to do.

so that brings me to today...today i am thankful for my mom. she comes down and stays with us for a few days a week {she drives 1.5 hours} and watches henry so i don't have to put him in daycare everyday and watches owen at night so i can work a few hours so i don't have to work weekends {or at least long on weekends} which means so much to me. Plus, i secretly know she likes it b/c henry reaches for her all the time now ;)...little stinker...

so, anywho....here is a lo i did with some Bella Blvd products...aren't these papers so fanatastic?! i had fun cutting the trees, that is the first thing i did when i got this kit from Simply Obsessed. these are the only trees i feel okay cutting down ;)

and some crate glitter cuts from Serendipity Scrapbooks...man, they make scrapping easy with all this good stuff! the journaling is hard to see so here it is: you, aunt amber and I went to rhorbach’s farm for a day of pumpkin hunting and apple . We had a blast. The sun was shining, the weather was perfect & so was the company. Your rode horses, pet a red deer and played in mountains and mountains of corn! I am so glad amber came that weekend. Not to mention green pumpkins!








i have a thing for funky pumpkins :)

til next time...

I love funky pumpkins, too, Ellen! I convinced my DD to get a pure white one this year. I've tried every year, and this time she finally went for it. Your page is SO cute. I love the detail stitching, and those cut-out trees are fabulous!
Don'tcha just love those matchy-matchies?? That's our new thing that my DD and I are doing together. She's finally getting big enough to fit in the adult sizes at Old Navy, so we're going crazy. We've gotten one set of matchies each month since October. I never thought I would have so much fun with it! I can feel a great page coming on.

So sweet that your mom is able to help you, Ellen! That is a wonderful blessing!

I adore that layout! The little trees are cute and the photos looks so fun!

Ahh, so that's where those trees came from - I wasn't sure which pp you used! Love that layout!! Wow, your mom sounds like a gem, how wonderful that she does that for you! Ok, girl, so when are we road tripping to meet each other? :-)

Oh have a thing for funky pumpkins too. I think I have passed it onto Evan. He always picks the ugliest pumpkin he can find because he is afraid that no one else will give it a home:)
P.S. I have a "thing" for your LO's too! Love this one.

I saw that layout on serendipity and love it! I also love that you are writing something you are thankful for in every entry :) I've seen a couple more ppl who do that and it's a neat idea.
