He's not as grumpy as he looks... And that mouse lookin' thing in his vest, is his darling daughter, JOSIE, the favored child of the family. She is pretty cute, though. She is one of those rare friendly chihuahuas, except if you try to bug her while she is sleeping on my dad's lap.

Today after a less-than-desireable Storytime at the Library (Tate had crack for breakfast), we went over to my parents' house and helped my mom clean a variety of rooms. I am helping her to organize her scrap stuff, and she has A TON of it. The best part, I left with PRESENTS!!
The paper is from "DCWV" (Die Cuts With a View) Fall Stack and there is some good stuff in there. She gave me one of each, as there are 3 sheets of each pattern. They have really upgraded the quality of those stacks. A few years ago, my mom had purchased the Spring/Summer pack and it was ok...ya know the stuff you MIGHT use in the wayyyyy background. This new one has papers that I would pick out at the scrapbook store and pay the 60 cents a sheet for each one. She got the stack at JoAnns, and before coupon, it was $19.99. Awesome deal and worth a look.
She also gave me this awesome leather photojournal with places for the photos on one page and blank 7gypsies-like manila blank space on the other page. Too cool and I can't wait to fill it.
ONE MORE DAY UNTIL HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've used youtube, mostly to watch innapropriate humor my brothers have shown me. Who knew there were also scrap tips on there??
Here are a few cool things:

CUSTOMIZED PLANNER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXHxWzbzv60
***This last one is long, but it is a cute project. Also, this woman is a champ. She even toted he 4 kids along with her to Staples and she still manages to look cute and have time to scrap. I am officially a wimp.

And Tate created yet another nest. If you don't know what I am talking about, refer to old post here.
And since I have almost ruined our camera from throwing it in the diaper bag and letting Tate do his own photo shoots... a new camera case. LOVE IT! (got it at Target.)

Here is a preview...imagine several 7th graders drinking Mt. Dew and cheetos mixed together, gooey plastic eyeballs being thrown, and a few trampoline injuries. Fun was had by all.

I love the way a black background makes photos "POP", but I was ready for a change. I was bored with myself.
Does anyone know how to make one of those cool personalized headers?? Or how they get a scrapped header for the title of the blog?
Lovin the cool weather today...tea and coffee taste SOO good when there is a chill in the air.
My first video post: Why I am so tired!

Tate is going to be Steve from Blue's Clues and I guess I am going to be Blue. There is NO way he was going to put on the Blue costume...
Oh and we scored a Thinking Chair off ebay. Yea--I HATE TV character stuff, but I guess I give in.
