Halloween Fun......FMS160

Looks like these witches just dropped their brooms and ran off to celebrate Halloween!  Such fun images in this Stampin' Up! set called Tee-Hee-Hee. We are looking forward to Halloween night and expect about 100 trick or treaters. Miss Emma will be here in her pirate costume to help us hand out Halloween treats.  But after seeing her play with her stuffed animals this week I am thinking next year she should be Dr. Emma Lin, DVM!

That wonderful Rita Wright designed a stylin' sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Real Life........FMS159

Lost Lagoon paired with silver looks wonderful on a Christmas card. The overall effect is serene and peaceful so I thought about writing a serene and peaceful post.  But then I thought perhaps you would like to know what is really happening as I type......

My daughter and her husband are on business trips.  My son and his girlfriend flew off on an adventure and my husband is managing everyone's affairs for the week.  That leaves me house sitting at my daughter's in charge of a toddler, three poodles and one maltese. Someone always needs food, a drink or a trip outside! (Walking four dogs and a two year old should be an Olympic sport!)  So as I type poodles are wrestling on the bed while the "sleeping" two year old yells "Puppy! Puppy!" from her crib across the hall. And thanks to the baby monitors "Puppy!  Puppy!" echos loud and clear in every room!  Meanwhile the maltese (the only dog who actually lives here) is barking and guarding the toddler's room from invading poodles. Somewhere in the house Super Grover sings every few minutes but I can't find where he is hiding or why he is singing.  My phone is dinging with text messages from my daughter checking up on Emma and my son checking on the poodles. But still I type..........

That fabulous Jen Mitchell has a sweet simple sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Enjoy!
