Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween to all!

I miss the days when kids came Trick or Treating to my house. My kids are too old for it now (not at 16 is old!) and there are not many little ones who live near us anymore. The kids across the street go elsewhere to gather their candy loot. Kids prefer to go to the big developments now. Thus my lonely pieces of candy sitting in my Halloween basket will get eaten by my family. Oh well! At least I have pictures to look back fondly on.

Now for the ATC's that I made for Lee Anne's A Muse Addicts Halloween Swap. Since we have all (or almost all) of us have received our packages I can post the cards that I made.

Life has a way...

of getting in the way. I have been so busy lately! With no free time to myself I have been unable to spend time in my crafty space. This week I have been staying at my sister's house with my niece while her parents are away. You know the best of intentions.... I brought some supplies with me to work on some stamping but alas, it has not happened. Between working remotely and spending time with my niece I have not been seen my stamps. I hope to get some quality stamping/scrapbooking time this weekend! Here's hoping!!!

Where? Oh Where has my blog gone???

Oh where, oh where can it be????

I have been remiss in keeping up with my blog. I have been working on a bunch of ATC swaps for the A Muse addicts which I HAVE to finish up by Friday so I can get them postal. The theme is Halloween (of course!) and I am having a lot of fun with them.

On the family front, my sons are doing well with their driving lessons. For anyone approaching this milestone with their children, let me tell you that having no control is a lot to deal with. For the majority of our children's lives we have been in control but once they get behind that wheel you QUICKLY realize that facade is gone! It is slowly getting easier. The impression of my right foot in the carpet on the passenger side is starting to fade from all my attempts to press that non-existant brake petal. What fun!

We have made plans with our friends in NC for our OBX trip next summer. Four of the boys will be starting their senior year next year so it will be a big celebration! This may be our last big bash before all of them go off to college in 2010. I cannot believe where time has gone! When my sons were very little I remember figuring out what graduating class they would be and 2010 seemed like a long, long way off.

Little did I know how quickly it would go by!
