Getting ready for Halloween

Today I was working on some things for my next Stamp Club meeting and Halloween. Below are the baskets I am giving to the girls at club and I am thinking I might make the pillow boxes to hand out at a Halloween party or for trick or treaters. Now that may sound like a lot, but I think in the past 4 years, we have had 5 trick or treaters :)

Scary spiders :) They have peppermint patties in the middle.

This is a pillow box with eyeball chocolates in it.

Meet our butterflies

Yesterday, while outside at our playground, we met a few new friends. This is Matilda. She has been with us most of the summer. To our surprise yesterday, she brought friends. I have to say that this picture is my favorite and I think it actually came out wonderful.
For the past couple weeks I have been thinking about trying to write a children's book. We I met Matilda I thought she would be wonderful to write about. As I was sitting in the backyard yesterday, I thought of a great, well at least I think so, concept for the book(s). It would be about a boy playing in his backyard and meets a butterfly. This butterfly then takes him on small adventures in his own backyard. He might meet her friend Sammy the Squirrel and he teaches the little boy about hibernation or getting ready for the winter. Then he may meet Gary the groundhog. I have no clue how to start a book and keep focused, but even if I just write it for Skyler, I think it would be fun. What do you think?

This is Theodore.
Meet Hazel.

This is Speedy. Originally he was going to be Spazz, but that did not seem to be an appropriate name for a butterfly!

Finger painting fun

Today Skyler did his first official finger painting. We set up outside and he had a blast (that is after he got over the shock of the feeling of the paint.)

Anthon'y birthday card

So, not too much has been going on for me to blog. I am currently trying to get everything prepared for my monthly Stamp Club meeting. I was going to post what we will be doing, but I think I will wait till after the meeting so everything is a surprise for the ladies.

Over the weekend we went to the Smithville Octoberfest. We enjoyed looking at all the crafts, eating hot dogs and funnel cake and of course riding on the train. We also attended Anthony's first birthday party. We all had a great time. The food was wonderful of course! Skyler and Keith had a wonderful time jumping around in the moon bouncer. It also had a slide that Skyler loved climbing up and then weeeee, down the slide.

Welcome to my blog!

This is the first time posting and do not know what I am doing. Please be patient and I am sure this will be great :)

The other day we went apple picking at Johnson's Farm in Medford. We had a great time picking golden delicious and red delicious apples. We also stopped to pick a pumpkin and a couple gourds. The hayride was also fun. The kids love the tractor. They also have a great playground and a few farm animals that we looked at. It was a fun day!
