Fall Favorites

Football and pumpkins are two of my favorite things about fall. I mentioned in my last post that we had a weekend of football and pumpkin patches. I just wanted to share some photos I took.

Saturday morning Connor had flag football. Round one of the playoffs. He is such a tough little guy. All summer long Connor and Zachary played football in our backyard with lots of boys in our neighborhood. All the boys, except for a few were older than Connor and I think that really helped him this year in flag. He was not afraid to block kids that were much bigger than him. Would you look at the look on his face. He plays the game with intensity. We ended up losing the game but we do get to play on Saturday for third place.
On Sunday, we made our annual visit to the pumpkin patch. We went back to Grobe Farms since we had such a great time there last year. They had tons of pumpkins! As usual, Zachary found his first and Connor can never decide. Zachary helped him and I think they both came home with the perfect pumpkins!

The fall weather has come to Ohio. The high today is a brisk 49 degrees. I have to say that I am loving the cool temps! It is breezy so our backyard is full of leaves. You know what that means? The boys said after school they are going to make big piles of leaves and jump in them. I will be there with my camera for sure!

October All Moments Remembered kit.

Wanted to share my layouts using the October All Moments Remembered kit. I really loved the new Collage Press papers and all the Prima! Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's layouts including our guest designer, Amanda Probst here!

Yep, that is me on my 21st birthday with my mom. Hard to believe that was 20 years ago!
We had a busy weekend with football and pumpkin patches! Yesterday, Eddie and I celebrated our 17th anniversary! Can you believe that! Happy Monday everyone!

A good time was had by all!

Yesterday was Connor's eight birthday party. We had it at Game Day which is an indoor football/soccer field for kids and adults and they just so happen to have birthday parties there too. We invited Connor's entire flag football team plus a few other friends from school and our neighborhood. Needless to say, they had a great time! He got some great gifts! Lots of legos, gift cards and football attire! Go BUCKS!
Here is a pic of the boys on the field during their game. After pizza they switched to kick ball.
I am happy to say that after two losses their flag team won their third game on Saturday. We came in third place and next weekend starts the playoffs. Hard to believe the season is almost over but don't worry, Zachary's basketball sign ups are Tuesday!

Lastly, wanted to share a layout of Connor on his first day of school this year. I just love this October Afternoon paper and finally got around to using it. Have a great week everyone!

I love teacher workdays!

Most schools in our area are closed today for a teacher work day. Yipppee! Gotta love a day off! For our school at least it is a freebie day so even the teachers get to enjoy the day including preschool! Shhh, don't tell the parents! LOL!

Here is what we have on tap for today:
  • Flu shots for the boys
  • Haircuts for the boys
  • need to buy the goody bags for Connor's party
  • fill said goody bags
  • take the boys to lunch ( I feel bad they have to get shots on their day off)
  • Maybe a trip to the pumpkin patch

We are gearing up for Connor's 8th birthday party on Sunday. It is at an indoor football field where they can play football, soccer, dodge ball and kickball to their hearts content! It should be a blast. I will share pics for sure.

I got a bit of happy mail this week! I was contacted by an online magazine requesting to use one of my layouts for a monthly column on journaling! Boy, this made my day as this particular layout is one of my favorites! I will share the link when the issue comes out in November!

So, what manufacturer should you design for? Take this quiz and find out! Cyndi56 posted it on the AMR MB and we are having fun with it. Mine said KI Memories.

Don't forget that tomorrow is All Moments Remembered online crop from 4pm-12am est. As always there will be challenges, prizes and lots of fun. Our guest designer this month is Amanda Probst from Creating Keepsakes and she will be joining us on the boards to chat it up! Hope to see you there! Have a great weekend!
