Hi everyone. This is a random post. I redid my hall wall with vinyl and really like how it turned out. But I can't get the pics to post on the message board of the craft site where they are usually posted. So I am posting them here and linking everyone to them. Weird post, I know but thanks for looking anyway.

Crazy hair day and Halloween

October was pretty crazy, but in a fun way. There were lots of activities to keep the kids busy.
First thing was Red Ribbon Week at school. One of the activities was Crazy hair day.

This is the back of Kade's hair.
Kade and Brock had just gotten their hair cut so there wasn't a lot we could do besides colored hair spray. They still thought it was pretty cool and fun.
Laith's turned out way crazy. He had missed Saturday hair cuts so he still a). had a lot of hair to work with and b). needed a hair cut. Probably the craziest hair we have done for crazy hair day.
Now Kelcie was my favorite. She is such a great sport. She wanted the "cup ponies" and here they are!! HILARIOUS!!

I love Halloween. Usually I really get into it and make costumes and I even dress-up, usually. This year I just couldn't get into it. But of course the kids were way excited and we all ended up having a lot of fun.
Kade was the Red Power Ranger.Laith

Brock as the Mummy
Kelcie wanted to be a dead cheerleader, which was really convenient being that Shaleigh's old cheerleading uniform fit her perfectly this year.

I love this picture!

This is Shaleigh's creation for halloween this year. Love those socks!
All-in-all we had a great October. We didn't end up with any pictures of Britt (anybody notice that that is usually the case with her. I never realized how hard it would be to get a teenagers picture taken Grrrr!) Anyway she was Minnie Mouse again this year and she looked great and had a great time trick-or-treating with her friends.
Well thanks for stopping by to check up on us. Check back and see how our November goes. Four birthdays this month

It's so Exciting!

Our house is full of much excitement today. Shaleigh has been running in the campaign at school for the last month. Constantly talking to people and working on her speech. Well today was the day, and I am happy to say.....She made it!!!! Woo Hoo!!! Shaleigh was voted in as House Representative in the student council for the 7th grade. I am so proud of her. She is so enthusiastic and fun to be around. She is determined and responsible. I know that her school and her peers will greatly benefit from having her represent them this year.

Yummy gift card holders

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend any time in my craft room. Boo Hoo. But now I have to plan a Super Saturday so I am forced (hee hee) to go down there and create. I wanted to show you these super cute cupcake/gift card holders, or just a card holder. The one that shows the insert is just a Happy Birthday card, the "chocolate" cupcake has an actual gift card in it. I have wanted to try making one for some time now but haven't had a chance. The idea comes from thestampgoddess She has such a great blog, go check it out. They were pretty simple and I am thinking of suggesting them for the Super Saturday. Everybody gives someone a gift card at Christmas right? So these could be perfect. Anyway, leave me a comment and TFL :)!

2nd Grade Field Trip

East elementary took the entire 2nd grade on a field trip to Cedar Breaks, and Kelcie's teacher asked me to help out. It was freezing when we got there first thing in the morning but the weather quickly warmed and it turned into the perfect day for a hike.
