A Couple Pages

I have a couple scrapbook pages to share real quick.

This picture that Aunt Michelle took of Tyler & Kalen is just so sweet. I love it!


This one is a double page! I haven’t done one of those in forever, but I just had to use all these cute pictures of Kalen the first time she had pigtails!



Happy Scrappin’!

Pumpkin Carving

Yesterday we carved pumpkins TWICE! We made one at Tyler’s friends house that morning and then carved a couple last night with Daddy.

In the morning Tyler didn’t want to do too much carving. I think it was because he was too busy playing, but Dad was able to get him to help that night.


Tyler wanted to make a spider one. It was a little complicated, but he helped do some of the carving too.


Kalen wanted a “Bell Bell pumpkin”! So Mommy helped her carve out Tinkerbelle!


When they were through Tyler wanted to put his in his room, but we talked him into letting it stay outside. We had to light them up right away to see how they looked!


Perfect! Now anytime we drive off the kids say, “look at our pumpkins!”

The Perfect Pumpkin

On Sunday afternoon we took the kids to a little pumpkin patch to search for the “perfect pumpkin!” This was a big job for Tyler and he took it VERY seriously!


Kalen on the other hand, picked out some right away!


Tyler had to help her a little bit.



Daddy did too!


Mom was determined to get the best pumpkin patch photo!


I was so happy when Tyler sat still for a few!


I think this is my favorite.


Kalen kept going from one pumpkin to the next sitting on it and saying “Cheese.”



Silly girl!


They really liked the baby pumpkins.


Kalen picked out a small one which she really wanted to carry herself,


but it was too heavy! “Help please Mommy!”


After about 30mins of running from one end of the patch to the other searching and searching Tyler finally found his!


Now we have two perfect pumpkins to carve!

Kalen’s New Dress

On Friday I was so excited when I went to Hobby Lobby and found patterns on sale and cute new fabric! I was a little nervous because I don’t really do well with patterns. Sometimes the instructions aren’t really clear. I like those online step by step tutorials with pictures better! I was glad I tried this dress though. It took me some time to figure it all out, but in the end it turned out SO cute!!


It helps that I have this adorable little girl to model it for us!!


Kalen calls it “My special dress,” “Mommy made it.”

_MG_5799aWhen I hear that it makes the hours sewing it all worth it and I want to make more! Smile 


Now if I can find some scrapbook paper to coordinate I’ll be all set!

Sweet Peach – October Reveal

The Sweet Featured October kit is amazing!! I just love it, it’s so fun and colorful!!


I also got the Embellishment kit!


I had so much fun with this kit! Do I say that about every kit? I just can’t help it, the Sweet Peach kits are just put together so good! :)

These colors went so well with some pictures I had of Kalen when she was little.


I love this picture of the kids and I from my 29th birthday!


I really like the Jenni Bowlin butterflies that come in the kit. These pictures from the Botanical Gardens were a perfect excuse to use a bunch on one page! Ha!

I made the rolled flowers from the strips of fabric included in the kit!


The October sketch is also up on the blog! Liz designs some beautiful sketches and I really enjoyed this one!


Here is my take:


A few fall cards.


So be sure to click on over to Sweet Peach Crop Shop and get your October kit! They also have a Halloween Themed kit that looks really cute!

Happy Scrapping!
