boy, i can come up with some catchy titles, huh! ha ha
how was halloween? we had so much fun. the girls dressed up like little geisha girls. kati who is only 2 1/2 had a blast. although, she pooped out after about 12 houses. she would open up her bag half was up the driveway and say, "trick-or-treat"....while all of the other kids had made it to the door and were on their way back to the street. she kind of got lost in the shuffle. it was too cute! they got more candy then they'll ever know what to do with....but the good thing is they have hardly even asked for it....so you know what that means. handfuls will disappear from their already hidden bags. seems wasteful but they just don't get much candy nor do they need it. not too long ago lauren threw up unexpectedly after she had eaten a ton of candy at a friends house....ya, so that was fun. guess their little tummy's just aren't used to it! so anyway, here is a picture of them all dressed up with the 2 neighbor girls....they even had the chopstick in their hair....(thanks grandma, they worked great)
well, i'm going to start teaching classes again! i've really missed it. i'll be teaching at a store called Page Makers, it's in chesterfield MO. i have to admit i was a little skeptical. just like with anything you never really know what to expect until you actually see for yourself. i have to say i LOVED the store. the space was great! very well merchandised (and having been a merchandise mgr. in the past this makes a huge difference in sales and the overall appearance of your store.... anyway.) she had a nice variety of product, a nice work area and just an overall neat store (of course i loved the cement floors!). the store owner, debbie was so sweet and easy going....so i think this will definitely be a good thing.
oh, remember when i entered the Making Memories Idol contest....well, for being one of the top 20 chosen Making Memories sent out one of their paper trimmers to each person. WOW! it arrived the other day....i love this thing! i've been using a fiskars for years and just never wanted to venture away from that....it was easy to use, light weight and didn't take up much room. well, move over fiskars....i'm lovin' this cutter. we'll see how much i love it when i have to change the blade.... but regardless, it's a nice tool....and what a great gift!
ok, i've rambled on enough....have a great weekend!
