the very long sunday...

my morning started before 6am, before the sun rose..much, much earlier than i would have cared to start it. it really stinks when you are the night owl parent of an early bird!

so i decided to give the girls a "sunrise surprise"...i made them grab their coats, throw on their boots and jump in the van. they were a little surprised to be in their pj's and going somewhere. we ended up at dunkin donuts (drive thru:) for some munchkins. they were just tickled.

i wish i could say the whole day was a bed of roses...but with 2 mischievious girls (who sometimes **gasp** BICKER) there are no guarantees.

we did manage to carve our pumpkins...that was a huge hit. not only that, but it was entertainment long after the carving was done. we went with basic jack' while i was busy cleaning up, the girls were using the carved pieces like puzzles...popping the eyes in and out...on and on. talk about cheap entertainment! they had so much fun. ella was actually upset that we had to leave them outside! lol!

here are some pics from today:

and here are some projects i finished this weekend. the layout is from my class. another one on balance. sketch provided. the halloween treat containers are for the girls parties at school. i didn't make the containers (thank god for micheals! lol)...but i did make the cute little spiders on top.

Ohhh, what fun! I love the pumpkin carving photos! I haven't carved one since I was about your oldest girl's age!

Ya know I also love those treat containers/spiders and your Cathy Z class page!

The girls look like they are having a great time doing their pumpkins! Just so you feel better my girls are 13 & 10 bicker like crazy too!
