It's Official!!

We started on our new home this weekend. Connor and I took a trip out there today to see the progress. He was so excited.... look at all those mounds of dirt! Boy paradise!!

The driveway is in, or at least "dug out", and the "big hole" as Connor calls it for the foundation has been dug up as well. Everything looked so beautiful out there this morning. It was chilly with low clouds over the mountains so the fall colors just popped liked crazy!

I couldn't resist snapping this pretty picture... this is the beautiful country road leading up to our house. We are so excited!!!

Well I'm off to work goodies and projects for all our Halloween events this week. If your in the Missoula area you should come to our church on Wednesday night. We are having a HUGE Harvest Party as part of our AWANA program. It's at 7:00 at Clark Fork City Church on Latimer behind Target. It's going to be a ton of fun for families... two big bounce houses with slides, hay maze, carnival type games, food, candy, and prizes (all for free)! We'd love to see you there! Have a great week!

Here's One for You Pal.....

Hi there! I hope you are all enjoying a lovely fall day! I had a special request here at my house, so I thought I'd share it with you today. I don't know about you, but being the mother of 3 young children I always find myself trying to make sure things are "fair/equal." You know, things like "why does Connor get the green one, I wanted green," are always popping up. ;) Now as far as I'm concerned the phrase "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit" applies to most situations, but I have to admit when it comes to photographs I'm a bit paranoid. I've heard so many sob stories from fello grown-ups over the years who have said things like, "there are 80,000 pictures of my older sibling(s) and 10 of me," that I vowed I would not do that with my own kids. I think I should've set the bar a little lower with my firstborn. ;) The other day I was scrapbooking, and most of the layouts happened to be of Parker and Maddie. So when my youngest, Connor, came in the room and checked it out he said, "Mama where is one just me?" He has been randomly asking me since then so.... here you go Connor one of just you!

I'm not sure how much he appreciated the pink glasses and the baby stroller, especially since he is 3 1/2 now and thinks pink is girly, but I love it! It will be one of those perfectly adorable photos to share at highschool graduation or his wedding! ;) Have a wonderful day! I've got some fall crafts I've been wanting to share, so hopefully I'll get them photographed soon!

Might as Well Jump!

In the leaves that is. We have several very large cottonwood trees in our front yard and every year they give us the most wonderful gigantic piles of yellow and brown leaves each fall. There were just enough leave on the ground yesterday to get a pile going, so as soon as the kids got home from school we were jumping! I'm really glad we are getting to spend one more autumn in this house before we move. We will really miss our big trees and beautiful leaf piles... but for now we are jumping away!

More Scrapbooking!

Oh how I miss the days where my Parker wouldn't go anywhere without his wranglers, boots, and a pistol! He makes such a cute cowboy!

Woooo, major shocker I know, I think this is the most scrappin you've seen outta me in a year! ;) It feels SOOOOOO good to be getting caught up! Hope your week is starting out wonderfully! I'm off to get the house ready for a showing, bake a birthday pie for my hubby, and get dinner in the crock pot (I have this super easy really yummy recipe I'll share later) before we have to leave for the potential buyers. What's on your list for today?!
