So can you believe it here we are October 8th already!!?? These past couple weeks have just flown by SOOO FAST!! Sorry I have MIA for a while, but on Sept 25th Nicholas had to go in for some outpatient surgery to correct some problems from the nurses in the hospital NOT properly caring for his circumcision! It has been a roller coaster ride, but he is doing good and goes back in 1 week from today for a follow-up. It has been hard as I have had to spend LOTS of time watching over him and making sure he doesn't get too wild or that the 2 of them don't start horsing around! Here's a pic I took of Nick before he went in for surgery. He was giving me the I don't want my pic taken look, but I'm gonna smile after you take a pic!
So I haven't really scrapped much lately either! I did go to Hannah's on Friday with my scrappy pal Robin and we shopped our little hearts out! : ) I did surprise myself and get 2 LO's done! I was REALLY into shopping and seeing all the scrappy goodness there that I had a hard time getting into doing any work, but I guess once I got the shopping out of my system I was ready to work! : ) I will have to go and take pics later of my LO's I made. Believe it or not I made my first ever Halloween LO!! Robin challenged me to do it and I did! I LOVE challenges that get me to scrap! Oh speaking of challenges Dixie Pieces is going to be 1 year old on November 1st and to celebrate beginning Friday, October 10th, through Sunday, November 2nd, they'll have challenges, games, and other fun activities. Oh, and prizes! So be sure to come over and join in on all the fun!! And on the 13th and 22nd be sure to check out who's posting a challenge and a technique ; )!!!
We went apple picking on Monday with my friend Sheila and her niece Nora, and let me tell you it was FUN!! I had only gone once before when I was 5, so this was new to me too! We went up to Harvard IL to a place called Royal Oak Farm and Fruit Orchard, and it was SOOO nice because we were able to let the kids play in this cool park area, take a train ride, go to a small petting zoo, there was a carousel-but Nick can't do that yet, and a tractor ride-which was booked for the day in addition to the apple orchard! The boys REALLY had a good time picking apples and every morning they ask me if we can go apple picking again! Here are a couple pics from our day! And yes my little ladies man was smitten with Nora and she wanted NOTHING to do with him! LOL!! I did manage to get a pic of the 2 of them holding hands for a minute!
We also went to Streamwood Pumpkin Fest on Saturday! The boys had a good time running around, listening to the librarian tell stories and play games, and watching a juggler! I love summer the best, but I must admit I REALLY enjoy the fall activities and Halloween! Speaking of which I should go downstairs and pull the Halloween decorations out like I promised Joseph last night! He is REALLY into Halloween! I let him stay up late last night watch the Martha Stewart Halloween show-he was SOOO into it! Then he came upstairs and started talking about where we should decorate and what we should do!
I can't wait to scrap all these new fun pics!
Well I better get going I've got a lot to get done today, and I have to find something to wear as I am going on a job interview tonight! YIKES!!! I haven't worked in OVER 3 1/2 years!!! With the cost of living getting SOOO expensive we need extra income, so I am gonna try working in the evenings. I am going to the children's store Carter's tonight, so we'll see what happens!
