it's already midweek wednesday...


Started the new job last saturday...quite overwhelming..to say the least...i work again this saturday during the day..then sunday i have a 12 hour shift...i'm already stressin over it...
BEFORE I GET INTO MY MIDWEEK STUFF...HEAD ON OVER TO SWEET VIVIAN'S HOUSE AND SIGN UP FOR THE TWO..YES I SAID TWO....HALLOWEEN SWAPS SHE HAS GOIN ON!

now on to BUSINESS!!!
we did have a bit of fun at a local church...we...

...got tickets...for the carnival!!!



LET'S RIDE!!!!!











all that RIDING needs a sweet retreat...kevin snuck off while the babies were whizzing and whirling about...and got...

FUNNEL CAKES!!!





...need a closeup?



after consuming all kinds of eats and sweets...it was time to go home...

and we left the fun silhouetted against the sky...



...got a bit overwhelmed cleaning up after supper...kids were ready for bed...and asked Miss Maddy to watch her brother for a minute...lol

well here is what we found when we checked in on her watching him.....



SOMEONE SAVE ME!!!!!



...maybe THAT'S WHY when we went to the post office to mail off a package...he climbed into the empty box we had at our feet...SOMEONE SEND ME SOMEPLACE!!!





...ANYPLACE!!!!


...rummage finds for this week...(well the bigger one...) found this sweet cabinet for the bathroom...going to put on a new coat of white paint...



...also got a new magazine rack...

here is my welcoming committee..as i go into the studio...



HELLO FRIENDS!!!! COME ON IN AND PLAY!!!

so play i did this week...finished up a few page commitments!!

for patti...and her woodland birdie book...

front of page (her's are back to back)



and back of page...



and for martha...(she has a pink christmas book)
left side of spread..



and the right side...



My little brother, Ron and his sweet wife, Lara...called they were going to have an ADDITION!!!

funny thing is, right after i GASPED!!! he broke in and said it was over 25 feet long...



and hence the SEA DRAGON was born! (way difficult birth, eh?) poor lara!

and as a beachy after thought...while i was in seattle visiting them...back in may...i gathered beach goodies for maddy and xander...well i snuck a few for myself to use in this display for our beachy bedroom!



ahhhh...what a nice way to drift off to dreamland...on the beach.......waves crashing....

hugz til next time!!!
