Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins!

Last Saturday we went to Bishop's Pumpkin Farm out in Wheatland. We joined Michele (Nick's girlfriend) and her family and had a great day. It was sunny and warm, just beautiful! I love photos from the pumpkin patch. The blue sky against the bright green and orange of the pumpkins is gorgeous! So I had to take lots of photos-193 to be exact!

These are a few of my favorites. I loved the photos of the flowers too. They had mums and roses and sunflowers all over the grounds. I took lots of photos of the kids too. They had so much fun. Michele's dad mentioned how funny it is that last year the Pumpkin Patch was "lame" but this year it is cool! The little lovebirds will do anything to spend time together now! I benefited from this bargain! I love the pumpkin patch!

Just had to show a picture of the little tag at the top of the page that I made one night. I was just playing around and it turned out cute. Hope you like it!
Gotta go for now! Have a good week!

Fall is definitely here!

It seems as though summer hangs on by it's fingernails as long as it can and then boom! Overnight almost fall has settled in. We still have the wonderfully sunny days, but there is a crispness to the air. This is one of my most favorite times of the year. I especially love a windy day where the leaves are blowing from the trees and the colors are magnificent in oranges, yellows and reds. I walked around my neighborhood today and took these photos of the beautiful fall colors. Enjoy!

Blogging about my Journal?

Okay, how self-absorbed does that seem? Oh well. I wanted to post pictures of my journal that I am working on from the Cambria trip. I have to say that it isn't working out exactly like I wanted, but I still like it because I love my photos! Richele hand painted the inside pages and the outside as well, I think. I love the inside pages, but I am covering them up with my writing! I'll have to recreate them for something else. I am not above framing paper! I learn so much hanging around these creative gals.
I have also posted some pics of my doggies because they are so cute! And some of the kids as well. Nick and his girlfriend Michele just went to Homecoming last weekend. Aren't they adorable! The picture at the top is the moon behind some clouds from my backyard. Jake took it. He has quite the eye for composition. I keep trying to push him towards photography and graphic arts.
I'm kinda tired tonight so I'm cuttin' it short. I have to get a decent nights sleep for a change!

Home Sweet Home

Oh, it's good to be home! I missed my hubby, my kids and my doggies! Dave was a great Mr. Mom while I was gone and the boys stepped up and did their share as well. Thanks guys!
Cambria and SanSimeon were beautiful! We lucked out and had the best weather of theyear. It was sunny and in the 70's everyday with that lovely ocean breeze. My allergies totally cleared up while we were there!

The Stamp Art Shoppe delivered as expected! Sandy and Richele are so awesome! They did so much work to get this trip together. We made 7 projects and had goodie bags, baskets, surprise gifts, and door prizes throughout the weekend. Not to mention we went home with a ton of product left over from our projects. Mind blowing! If they ever do this again, you have to go!
The photos are a few of my favorite shots from the trip. The statues are from Hearst Castle. We visited there on Tuesday. Definitely a must see if you are in the area. It is beautiful! The beach photos are from the beach outside our hotel. The rest of the photos were shops in downtown Cambria that had cute displays and storefronts. I took so many photos! I am so thankful to have a good camera! After looking at my friend's pictures I spent the rest of the time on a photo hunt looking for things to photograph. I thought I lost my last group of photos because my memory card got accidentally erased! Action Cameras near SAS was able to recover them tho. Pheww! I wanted to cry when I thought they were gone. I spent a whole day cropping, printing and cutting out the photos! I am making my journal now, but I am not done yet. I'll post pictures soon.
I better get going! Have a lovely day!

I'm feeling the love!

Thanks to all of you who posted comments! I feel the love! I have decided to give you all a little treat, so I will be contacting you by email. I just couldn't cut it off at five. I hope that you all will keep checking back often to see what I've been up to.

We just left the football stadium and we won! Yay! Both varsity and JV won, and my baby got to play a little bit more this week. Go Nick! You make Mom and Dad sooo proud!

On Sunday I leave for Cambria for the Artsea Escape that The Stamp Art Shoppe has put together. I am so excited I can hardly wait! Sandy and Richele are so creative and they think of everything! I have to do laundry and packing and all that fun stuff tomorrow. So, the blog will be quiet for a few days while I am gone. I thought about bringing the laptop, but I kinda doubt I will have time for it. So I promise lots of pics when I get back. I hope to come back to lots of comments! Just kidding! No, really.

Here is a visual for you, it's raining and cold outside, my bed is all cozy and warm upstairs waiting for me to come and get in it. The first cool night in a long time. it smell so good outside right now. I might have to sleep with the windows open just so i can her the rain. Mmmm... I better go, I think my bed is calling me....
