A couple before pictures!!


LOL I found this before picture of her teeth! Taken in late October, early November. See the space that was there??? This is like one of those weird pictures you'd see in the fun house mirrors! LOL!
LOL ok since that was a bad picture of her I added the one on top! Not so Fun House looking!!! :)
I added this one just for you Eileen! :)

Look Ma no teeth!

Cheyenne's one tooth has been wiggly for so long! It was getting to be so crooked that it looked as though she had lost a tooth between the one that was wiggly and the one next to it. Today Mammy convinced her to let her pull it out. While she was in the pulling mood (Mammy that is, Cheyenne was against it) she also pulled the one on the bottom which we just realized last night was really wiggly. Seventy Five Cents later, lots of her screaming and shaking from being scared, (Did I mention she is a Drama Queen????) and the bribe of a container of Dipping Dots, she finally let Mammy take the tooth out! Look at her new smile! And of course it wouldn't be Cheyenne if she didn't pose for a fashion shot! :)

Kids Christmas swap - By Cheyenne







I entered Cheyenne in a swap for Kids Christmas cards. I think they wanted up to age 12. She had a great time making the cards for this!!! She took two groups so she made two designs. All images are by Stampin' Up, ("Dasher" and "Wandering Words") but supplies are what we had on hand. The sentiment on the twill says "Merry Christmas". I hope all the kids that receive them like them as much as she enjoyed making them!

Tags tags and more tags Take 2


Although these are HORRIBLE pictures, I made these two tags for a tag swap on my fav. MB. The top ones are for the "Love/Valentine's" theme. The flower ones are for the "Anything Goes" theme. I used some cardstock and rubber stamps that I had on hand for these. The vases are colored with my Stampin Write Markers.
I have more to follow, but I had to recharge my camera battery. :( Hopefully I can get them posted soon!

What a beautiful day!

It was such a beautiful day here today!!! We decided to skip naps, put everything else on hold, and head outside! The kids wanted to rake the leaves.

There was plenty of them! (Wish you could see her smile better! Missing and wiggly teeth make for cute smiles!)

They love raking them into a pile
And throwing them into the air.

They had a great time, and I am glad I was able to snap some pictures of them! Who knew raking up leaves could be so much fun????
PS the leaves are still all over the yard!!!!

Five little words that worry me...

There are 5 little words that I hear my son say often. And every time I hear them I start to worry....

"One, Two.....
Three.....

Blast Off!!!!!"
Now normally you would think these words would be associated with oh say a rocket ship. Not for him! Generally they mean he is about to jump off of something! Sometimes it's the couch, sometimes it's a chair. Once, a week before his birthday pictures, he uttered them as he was diving face first into a pile of rocks! With his loving Grandfather looking on...and laughing! Never mind that he had a big goose egg on his head afterwards! (And he continued to do it since it made Pop Pop laugh!)
Anyway, today it was the slide! He takes jumping into leaves to a whole new level!!!
Luckily it was the leaves (and the muddy back yard) that took the beating, not him! Ah boys, you gotta love them!!!!

Craft Fair Time!!!

I have been working a lot on the craft fair that my friend Michelle and I went to yesterday. It was the first one that either of us have ever been to, and didn't know what to expect. I think we did OK considering the amount of traffic (well the lack of traffic). we learned a few things, and we saw what sold a little better then others. we are going to attempt another fair early next month I hope.

If you'd like to see some of the projects, I have them on my Stampin' Up site found here:

I have a few cards to post, but I have to get my swaps taken care of first! :)
See you soon!
