so long summer....
Hope everyone enjoyed Labor day today. We had a great afternoon of picnicing with family. All the kids and their boyfriends, girlfriends and a few extras came over for a nice cookout.
We had burgers and hotdogs, cheesy potatos, pasta salad and corn on the cob..
followed by brownies, choc cake and ice cream!
(hey, try not to notice that house in the background.. its been vacant and uncared for for about 20 years! I would rather have it like that though then to have some one live there! lol!)
The kids tossed the football around and dug out skateboards and skated in the street.
lol! I say kids, but the youngest one is 21! not really kids anymore! Anyways it turned out to be a nice day. Was supposed to rain, but all we ever got were a few sprinkles.
Saturday, my daughter jen and I met up with Jenny (be cheery)
and Natalea (Kandeland) for lunch and a little craft supply shopping! it was great to see them. I'm so glad that I was able to meet these girls. If it werent for blogging I may never had known them! Natalea brought her crazy daughter Scarlet with her. She is a character!! I know she keeps Natalea in stitches!
So that was today and saturday, then there was yesterday.
I dont know what got into me, but all of a sudden I realized that the next 4 or 5 weekends are totally filled and that I wasnt gonna have time to get my halloweenies out! so I decided to get everything out and get busy with halloween decorating. I decided when you have so many cute things, you need to get it all out and set up early so you have time to enjoy it all.. whats the sense of having it out for a couple weeks?? So YUP! its Halloween time at my house. I had such a great time opening up all those sweet halloweenies that I havent seen since last year.
This picture above was after unpacking the first of 6 bins. It took me from 1:00 in the afternoon until 11:30 last night to get everything out and set up. When I get a new holiday or season out.. I have to put the old one away! so I had to pack up the stuff thats been out all summer. A lot of work! but now other then the front porch, Im pretty much done!
Look at these sweet Lori mitchell dolls! I had put them on layaway months ago and forgotten them. I finally picked them up last week. Arent they cute?! Ha.. but I have no where to put them!
I have a busy week in store.. need to get caught up at work first of all.
but also, I'll be going away this coming weekend to my aunts cottage with a few girlfriends for a weekend of crafting! I am so looking forward to going! But I have a lot to do to get ready to go.
I hope all of you had a great weekend. I'm pooped! (sort of like figgy and frannie)
I hope you all know that I've been blog hopping but not leaving comments this week. NO time! but I have been trying to keep up!
also.. I'm about to hit 500 posts in a couple weeks. I'm gonna try to think up something special to celebrate! 500 posts.. and I'll be 50 years old very soon... eiy yie yie! Where does the time go?
Okeedokie.. I have to get off this crazy computer. I have things to do!
have a good night everyone!
