Halloween - Lady Gaga


Andy found me a video on You Tube (you can find it under Lady Gaga Makeup) that had a beautiful makeup idea. So we bought everything and I tried it out. Ladies if you are looking for something fun and very different try this out. Very easy to wear and everyone wants to know "how did you do that". Andy had vampire teeth that looked exactly like his own teeth that he wore at work (no photos do to the fact he says he does not photograph well).

1st Snow


We got our first snow on Wednesday morning. It did not stay around long, but was beautiful while it lasted. I wish the snow could always be this way...short and sweet.

A few more of Blair

Blair loves beaters with goodies. So this is Blair enjoying his goodies.

This is what happens when he is finished and you take the beaters away.

This is what he does when he sees my camera...the one way you can always cheer him up.


Just some cute photos of Blair in the Fall


(no we did not let him eat this pine needle)

I cannot believe how much he has grown

My nephew is getting so big in such a short time. We just saw him about a month ago and he is now pulling himself up to standing without any problems, crawling on all fours rather than army style, and is talking more and more. He is such a happy young man. Here are some videos and updated photos.

The Summer of Projects

So I am going to call this Summer the "Summer of outdoor home projects". We had a very productive year and I still cannot believe how much was accomplished in a Summer.


First we built the shed:


Than we covered the deck:

Put in a water feature:

Than Andy built my flower bed:


Put in an arbor for my grapes:


Now------

We had the house painted. You know both of the homes we have owned were yellow and not that we have anything against that color...we just prefer something other than yellow. I found a guy through craigslist that we absolutely loved and in one day our entire house was painted. Andy and I finished the trim the following day and now we have a beautiful green/brown home. We love it. We still have to paint the door, but other than that we are done...for this year I think with outside activities. =) So when you come to visit "no you are not at the wrong house."
