{Happy Thanksgiving}

Meet Turkey Lurkey's 2, 3 ,4 & 5!
Yes the other kids begged and pleaded for a turkey shirt as well so I got busy. ;)
All I can say is thank goodness for nap time.
Parker wanted a Camo Turkey-Check!
Brinley just wanted something pink-Check!

Corbin just wanted a turkey shirt-Check!

And just to be the nice babysitter that I am, I made the little white one for Miss Ruby. Her mom loved it, and I think it turned out pretty darn cute.
Oh and Jentry didn't want a turkey shirt, end of story!
I hope you all have a Fabulous Thanksgiving!

See you in a couple days!
Okay now Lets Eat!!!

{Turkey Lurkey}

Well last night I found an Addison shirt, traced her little hand then put her to bed and made this.
Yes I bit the bullet and sewed on knit fabric (never done this before). Just don't look at my sewing job, my heart was beating through my chest while I sewed this, yes just the thought of sewing on knit makes me sweat & a professional I am not!
But I just had to do this tutorial I found yesterday. It is super easy and I think I may do one for Corbin, that is if he wants one. :) I know the fabric isn't very "Thanksgivingy" but I was going for a more Mod Turkey. I mean ya still have to be styling on T-Day.
Oh and instead of machine stitching the legs of the bird, I hand stitched them with Embroidery floss. I think they stand out a little more,
I just love those short little legs. ;)
Click here for the tutorial. Now go make one or 12!

Oh and this took maybe 25 mins to make, yes I'm slow but hey I hand stitched!

{Nope Not A Craft Post}

Sorry no fun craft idea today but I have been doing this instead....................... 

I just started this morning at 7:30 doing daycare for 1 little girl (I'm so not a morning person) Her name is Ruby she's almost 2 and she is a cute little thing. She's basically been the perfect child today she has not cried once plus she ate a good lunch (she's a picky eater) and now she's napping for at least another hour (she sleeps from 1:00-4:00 or 4:30), so I'm sure tomorrow will be different. I really didn't want to do daycare but I figure the $500.00 a month will help out with some bills and getting some stuff paid off. ;)

 I could never go to work outside the home as the 2 kids I would have to put in daycare would basically eat my check. So here I am at home trying to help earn a little cash to help out the hubster. 
Plus I snuck in a little power nap this afternoon, that never happens!

Well I need to go find an old shirt why you ask? Well I found on a blog this afternoon the cutest turkey shirt idea, using an old shirt and one of the kids hand outline. Genius this woman is! Hopefully I'll get it made this evening that is if I can get my craft mojo on, right now I'm still in semi coma sleep mode. Boy I hope this post made sense..... Later!

The movie surprised me, I liked it better than I thought I would. I have to admit that I went in with low expectations because when I saw the movie trailers on TV I found the acting to be a bit cheesy. But now having watched it I would totally watch it again & I will be watching the movies to follow. :) I mean don't get me wrong I still found a few parts in the show where it was just a little cheese but it was still good, so if ya love the Twilight books go and watch the movie I give it a thumbs up!
And speaking of movies, they showed the preview for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Looks like it's going to be a good one! I know I say it every time but I just love me some good movies!
I do have one question though why do some parents think it's okay to bring their 18 month old toddlers to 12:00 am movies that last a little over 2 hrs? Seriously it's called a sitter, look into it. People are STRANGE! And I felt bad for that little girl you can tell she just wanted her bed.
Well I better get my sorry butt in bed it's way late & I'm rambling plus the kids don't seem to care if I've had a late night, they still require care and feeding, why is that? :) J/K

{I'm Out Of Here}

Yup I'm going to the 12:05 a.m. showing of this tonight errrrr I mean this morning. I am really needing to get out of the house. 
Lloyd is still not home from work, but will be sometime around 10:00 after his work meeting in Enterprise. 
The kids have been less than stellar this evening, the boys won't stop fighting & everyone is whining about doing their homework.
Yeah I need to get out, all i gotta say is this movie had better be good.

{Sneak Peek For Sarah}

Sorry I've been a bit MIA over the past few days but I have a good reason. Enter my Wanna Be Photographer stage, yes I've been playing the role of Photographer, I have no idea what the heck I'm doing but the fun is in the experimenting right? Lets just say that my camera and I are getting to know each other a little better.
Anyway, this is my sweet cousin Sarah and her Fiancee Ryan, they came down over the weekend & I took a ton of engagement pictures for them. Watching her with Ryan made me feel old as I used to babysit her and her sisters. (aka changed their diapers) But it's so fun to see them growing up and starting families of their own. And Sarah you have got a keeper, Ryan is just awesome, congrats your two!

{A Photo Shoot & A 1st Birthday Party!}

Well I had about a 30 minute break from the rain on Halloween so I threw Addison into her Birthday outfit and ran downtown to take a few 1 yr. pictures of her. I didn't have much time because it was starting to sprinkle again, and the fact that we had to go Trick 0r Treating. But thought they turned out kinda cool considering it was a real quick shoot. I went with more of a punk dark look with these 3 I just had to with all the graffiti & metal background! :) I'm by no means professional so don't look too close. ...

Then I took these in our back yard, I love the contrast with the big black clouds.

We decided to have her party on Saturday only because Friday was so busy with all things Halloween. I went with a princess theme because 1. she's only going to have her 1st birthday once and 2. I know she will have plenty of Halloween themed parties for the rest of her life. So pink and orange princess it was! 

The Birthday Girl!
This is the first banner I have made, I think it turned out pretty cute. I'm thinking of making a few more. Maybe for my Etsy Shoppe. :) maybe......

See Tausha I'm finally using my Cricut again!

Don't laugh, remember I told you I'm no cake decorator! Plus I had frosting tip drama and only about 20 mins to frost the thing.

Addison Cakes, I got the idea from Ashley's blog. Thanks!
There you have it! 
Oh & for those of you that asked about the "pumpkin head" stuff. I got them at Wal-mart they cost $3.50 per box and each box had enough to do 4 pumpkins with some eye's & maybe a nose or 2 left over.
 I bought 2 boxes. The kids love them and I get to use them again next year!!!

{Halloween With The Fab 5!}

Well we didn't have time to carve our pumpkins this year.. I know!! Can you hear the utter disappointment in my voice? ( I dislike carving greatly, oh the mess) So we went with a "Mr. Pumpkin Head" theme this year. The kids loved it and to top it off we were done in 5 minutes with no mess & we think they look pretty fabulous!!
Then @ 6:00 we went to our Church and attended our annual Trunk or Treat! The kids had fun & I didn't have to make dinner because they served hot dogs & hot cider (thank you very much). The kids played tons of games & scored all kinds of Halloween trinkets and goodies, then we headed outside where they literally were stuffing their bags with candy.
Yeah, I know what you're thinking....... Good times!
And here we are Trick Or Treating our friends Brent & Maria's house! Sorry had to post one with Brinley wearing her cat mask! 
Phew 1 holiday down 2 to go....
All in all it was a pretty good night, granted I was sporting a nice headache and I was stressed to the max (try 2 day's o' stress). We had Addison's B-day party the next day so I have yet another Addison post coming. I know, I know I promise it will be the last for a while, but I promise the pictures turned out pretty cool so of course I have to share.
Okay I'm going to drag my sorry, exhausted, stressed out body to bed. Good grief I just noticed it's only 11:40 someone just call me Grandma and get it over with. I mean I usually stay up till 2 am sheesh, see what stress will do to ya. Night all!
