The pumpkin patch

Well Im still getting the hang of this scanner. It cuts the bottom of the page off, but it does get 95% of the page scanned in one scan HOW MUCH does that rock! Epson is amazing. I love this scanner. Early anniversary present from hubby.
These are just a few photos of Bella from when we went to the NICHOLS-BOYD Pumpkin Patch In Mississippi where we used to live. A REAL pumpkin patch. NOT just a church parking lot full of pumpkins. Which is really cool when you live in town, but it just isn't the same as going out into the field and picking your own pumpkin and getting to see and pet the animals that reside there. This is the patterned paper from the fall line of Flair designs and making memories chipboard letters. LOVE the Flair patterned papers. I got these from scrap that moment as part of my payment for being published in the Scrappy chick magazine for the fall issue. You will be able to see it pretty soon. I have more pages to post just not as much time as usual.

I am working hard on the pages for Kathy campaign (our friend and teacher for the toddler class at Woodridge Baptist Church learning Center that was dx with terminal cancer through out her pretty much entire body) I have gotten 7 pages ready to take up there tomorrow. Thank you all for your generous donations of supplies and or pre made pages. If you are interested in making a page just simply reply here on this blog. Thank you all so much. I am taking her your notes of encouragment as well. Your continued prayers for her and her family are deeply appreciated. She was released from the hospital (sent home with "this is all we can do for you") but has another apt. with another dr, well it was yesterday now. I should be getting an update hopefully tomorrow. She is spending as much time with her family as possible esp. that beautiful baby girl Claudia (5 months old) and her husband Jason. Please remember them in your prayers. It is a very heart wrenching situation. I know they all appreciate your ongoing prayers.

One tired, full of candy cowgirl...

Bella wasn't real sure about this trick or treat stuff. She didn't like ringing the doorbells and she didn't like the scary costumes some of the kids were wearing. THEN... she realised they were passing out candy. HIP HIP HURRRAYYY is all we kept hearing from her the rest of the night and WHEN we go to nuther house halloweenin' and what about all those other houses we didn't go too SHe bet they had candy in there too! I told her we had enough candy to last quite a while from the 7 houses we went to. (yeah come to find out if you take a cute little kid from the neighborhood in which you are trick or treating THEY PILE ON THE CANDY) and most all of them knew that Bella was allergic to nuts so had plenty of things she could have. Then we went to Uncle David and Aunt Dianes and helped pass out candy there. We had made 110 treat/tract bags and ran out. Thank goodness we still had some loose candy when the two SWEETEST cutest little minnie and mickey mouse kids came up. WE flipped off the light just as they were walking up I felt sooo bad I called to them to wait we would see what we had. They had the costumes from Disney world like what mama wanted to get Bella that I told her NO PLEASE cuz they cost wayyyyy too much for her to just wear a couple times... but omgosh they were the most adorable children ever so we sacrificed some kit kats and sent them on their way.
Bella did not complain about going to bed last night she was plum tuckered and had her fill of Pink Gum (yall know that is her absolute most favorite treat that only good BIG kids get) so she can be bribed into child slavery with pink gum.. Not to mention the BIG BOUNCY BALL dispenser at Old Navy will make them Tinkle on a toilet that they are convinced will suck their hiney right off of her body if she dared sit on it... (it has the auto flush which she is NON APPRECIATIVE of) so anyway good tips for moms there for bribing 3 year olds huh! Well she is taking a nap so I have got to fold laundry and get a few things done before she awakens and becomes herself again. Hope you had a happy Halloween and hard to believe it is almost Thanksgiving and Christmas AHHHHH! I have to find a paying job or yall will be sadly dissapointed in yall's gifts this year.. IT will be a thought counts christmas round here haha.
