i heart photoshop

one of the 1st things that got put on the back burner when we moved back to the states was my photo business. there wasn't time for it and there still really isn't. but that also meant my photoshop skills went downhill fast.

so lately i have been making myself play a little more and's the latest...i personally like the 2nd pic best...

still working on those takes time:)

pumpkin guts

we waited kinda late this year to start the pumpkin carving. and of course there was no way we could NOT carve pumpkins:)

last night we started out just cleaning the pumpkin guts out.

and this is always a favorite time for the girls, cause they LOVE the feel of slimy pumpkin guts in between their fingers.

and this play time wouldn't be complete without the "pretending" to eat the pumpkin guts photo.

My kids could seriously spend hours playing with the guts. almost wish pumpkins could come around a few more times a the LONG winter when we are out of ideas of things to do...oh well...we will enjoy it nonetheless!

tonight we carve the pumpkins....stay tuned!

Thursday, October 8, 2009


i haven't completely abandoned my blog...i promise. just been insanely busy with nothing really interesting to write about. been in mommy mode. driving from school to practice to home...then homework, dinner, baths, bed...a few temper tantrums (mine and theirs:).

the good news is that my "relief" will be here in less than a week. very happy about that. then i can start breathing again. at the moment, i am doing a lot of cleaning. not very fun. have been wanting to scrapbook, but don't have time really for that either. been reading lots. such is the cycle of life.

so now that you're bored beyong belief and probably don't have to feel like you are really missing out on much:) hopefully i will be back soon with something witty to say or a new pic to post. sadly haven't even picked my camera up in awhile. must do that soon!
