Today was the kiddos first day of school... finally! It seems like so many of my friends online have had their kids in school a month already! LOL!!

Justin headed off to 7th grade today.. boo.. officially middle school! I was TOLD.. hugs and kisses were to be given out at home.. and I couldnt sit in the front seat on the way to his bus stop.. and NO photos at the bus stop.. well SOME of that I did.. I was able to sneak a photo or 2 from the car.. hee hee!! :) I am sad.. but SOOO EXCITED to see him grow and make his dreams come true... just as long as he will always HUG me.. even if it is in the house where no one can see! :)

Some Justin photos to share! :)

I cant WAIT to hear about his day!!! :)

About an hour and a half later! :) We took Amanda to school... sigh.. she looked so cute.. and way to GROWN UP to me! LOL!! she wanted her hair braided last night so it would be all CUTE today.. I think this is gonna be a trend she likes to do.. least it is fast and easy! :)

She let us walk her in.. give her hugs.. but then waved us out the door! HA HA!!
Here are some photos of Amanda ....

So cant wait to hear about her BIG day too... she had a few friends in class and was so HAPPY about that...

Now what shall I do.... Steve took today off too.. he is watching tv.. the sun is out.. I think I will walk.. and count down the hours til the kiddies are home! I miss them already! I am sure by next week.. I will be enjoying the ME time... but for now I miss them.. the house is to quiet..
Have a GREAT day ~ THANKS for stopping by!!

Happy Thursday!! :) I cant believe another week has almost come and gone with no updates.. just TRYING to get in the last bits of summer FUN before the kiddies go back to school.... next week!

First up... this Halloween card.. Oh even the paper is new! LOL!! :) I need to STOP that and use what I have.. I cant help it I LOVE paper! :) and I LOVED this spider web punch.. I didnt care it was full price I had to have it! (Mikes was OUT so no coupon for me! HA HA!)

You cant tell probably from the photo.. but I used my copic spica glitter pen in black to go over the web.. and his legs.. then added crystal effects to his body! Not sure what to do for my Halloween cards this year.. I just HAD to use this cute new border punch and halloween paper! :)

Next up.. my brothers birthday card.. which is LATE! YIKES! BUT I am sending $ so I am sure he will forgive me! He better anyway! HA HA!!
This fast card took me FOUR days.. I wanted to use my new star embossing folder.. so I put it all together then drew a it sat... and sat.. THEN I got a brain storm last night.. I LOVED THIS... that Nicole created... (side note cant WAIT to get that mag. she shows in todays post.. oh my!!!) ANYWAY.. this is what I came up with last night!!! (it is on the way Jimmy!! he doesnt read this.. but it will hold me accountable! HA HA!)
