Just wanted to share...

This month when I was going to do my visiting teaching I wanted to do a little handout. To get inspiration some months and for printouts I love to go to to find them. As I was doing that for my little handout I came across another blog that does a lot of church ideas as well. The one she had for this month was this tag for Boo-nana Bread. I loved it! I make banana bread a lot usually this month and so I thought it would be  perfect for a treat. It went with this months holiday perfectly.. My girls I visit got a kick out of it as well.

Patrick's 1st Band Concert...

Patrick joined band this year in Junior High. He chose the trumpet and has been enjoying it and actually not doing to bad. Last week he had his first Concert at the school with the other bands. As far as I could hear he did pretty well. And for a group of beginning band kids they played really well. Looking forward to the Christmas Concert...
(hopefully going to have my nice camera fixed by then)

At Blake's Request!

So, Blake has been bugging me for EVER to get him into a gymnastics or tumbling type class. So we got a paper a month ago about different things going on in the town next to us. One of those courses was a trial run for 5 weeks in gymnastics/tumbling. I thought this would be the perfect time to have him try it out and not be stuck in it if he didn't enjoy it. Well, he is LOVING it! So it looks like when we are done we may be doing this on a monthly basis. He is actually really good at it. I am happy he is enjoying it and so we will look into letting him pursue it after this is over...

Patrick's 5k...

Patrick ran the 5k for his Junior High's fundraiser and also to get out of 3 timed runs in P.E. Of course it was nice to give to a cause but he was so excited to just get out of running in P.E. Lol. Joe decided to also join in and run with him. Patrick also ran with his best friend. They had a great run and a little fun even though it was a very chilly October morning... So proud of you both!

It's October!!

It's October and that means Halloween.... It's crazy to think its here again already but it is! And this year I have had some fun making a few new things for inside and out. About 12 years ago doing wood projects was so in and I used to do them all the time and now they are back and even cuter. So, me and a few friends of mine got together and have made up the trick or treat blocks and the Wicked blocks which are my favorite. Then I needed a new wreath for the door and decided to make this one out of burlap. It turned out cute but is a little time consuming. Didn't think about that when I saw the idea, but was worth it. I also gave my pumpkins this year a little paint treatment just to spice things up a bit. Now its just time to get baking, costumes and then lots of candy. It's going to be busy this month but looking forward to a lot of family and friend time. The boys are already bugging to go to haunted houses and I don't know about it anymore. I had my share as a teenager and now I would rather pass. But I think will find some friendly ones for the twins and Patrick can go with his friends. Then everyone is happy.

   Happy Halloween Everyone!!!
