I dragged Reed to a Boutique yesterday.(One of only a few brave men there) I was tired of doing projects and just wanted to get out. We both had the day off and we went to this boutique in Bountiful for fun. I found some of the best ideas ever. If you have ever wanted great ideas...here's a few websites that are really great. ENJOY! These flowers were cute and I put them on hats for the picture. They are just on a clip to go in a girl's hair. I love how they are layered with seven layers. Crazy...but oh, so cute. This website has stores but, their thing is to have cute clothes for cheap...you may have seen their commercials. Cute stuff, and pretty affordable. www.chicboutiquestyle.com www.myquiltergirl.com www.fingersandtoes08.blogspot.com This booth had the yummiest cupcakes I've ever seen. There was even a whole bakers dozen of twilight themed cupcakes...so fun. www.thesweettoothfairy.com This one has the best baby slings...so trendy! www.modmum.com This next website makes stuff to keep kids entertained at church, like magnet boars, puzzles, games and more. Good ideas. www.tikakids.com This is my new latest and greatest find. I didn't find this one at the boutique but, it's my new fun place to go to look around and find new interesting items. They have antique windows, doors and a whole bunch of other stuff. I don't know how good their website is but, the place is a treasure hunt. www.georgessalvage.com These are baby covers for the carseat. I don't need these but they were sure cute. www.eletent.com www.hushboutique.etsy.com the next website makes handmade baby booties... www.curious-workmanship.com www.mcardsandservice.com www.fleurdelisaccessories.com www.speakwithmebooks.com www.emilyjanephotography.com This next photographer is my new fav....Maybe someday! www.julieparkerphotography.com SO, if you are ever bored...check out some of these, the stuff they had at their booths were so cute. I ended up only buying a few stocking stuffers but, came home with lots of ideas.

This weekend I went to visit my sister, Nichole. Isaac is off track right now and I am taking advantage of the freedom. Him being the oldest, it's been an adjustment being tied down with him in school. I am so glad he loves it so much. My sister had a UpperCase living party and it was so fun. I got a vinyl for Abbie's room that I have been wanting for a while. So cute!! While we were together we did our "NOEL" letters. We had purchased them the last "sister's outing" we had and we decided to take the time to do them together. It's amazing that we can have the exact same set and they turn out so different. They are both sooooo cute!! I am posting mine...Nichole post yours as soon as you finish. I want to see the finished product.

It's not even Christmas and it feels like I am running a million miles a minute. I am working on parents, family and friends gifts. I want to be able to enjoy the month of December but, we'll see. I will probably find things to do then too but, the hope is to enjoy this wonderful time of year. I feel like I have been doing so much but, don't have anything to blog about because it would ruin the surprise. I would really love to show everyone how cute they are turning out but, you'll have to wait and see for Christmas. I am really excited about some of them and I just had to blog about how fun it is even though I can't post pictures. I just picked up a really awesome chair and it is exactly the one I have been looking for, for about two years now. Thanks Shellie for showing me your gorgeous chair, I have wanted one like it ever since, so when I found it...it was love at first sight. Of course, I will have to reupholster it so, I am on the look out for the perfect fabric. I hope it's out there waiting for me....on sale...no less. Hee Hee Well, onto some more fun!!

Can I just say I LOVE Halloween!!! It is such a great time of year...I love the crisp weather, the fall leaves, and all the fun with family! This year the kids were a theme, probably the last year I'll get them to do that, and it was really cute. Isaac was a Knight...Abbie was the princess...and Kaden was supposed to be the dragon but, once he saw that Isaac was a Knight, that's what he wanted to be. So, I have 2 Knights to protect the princess. It was really cute. Our new neighborhood was fantastic for Trick-or-Treating. It was so much fun to see all the neighbors, the kids had a great time, and we even got to go to some spooky houses. The kids weren't fazed at all by the scary ones. Yeah, no crying children. Most of the houses were decorated so darling with one house having amazing carved pumpkins. That's the other thing we did yesterday, we took the pumpkins that we grew in our garden and carved them. Reed did two since we had so many pumpkins. The kids did a great job. Abbie carved a ghost, Kaden wanted a cat, and Isaac did an amazing dragon. He wanted a dragon because he had one on his Knight costume. Isaac,you did a great job, and Reed had to help him only a little bit. After we had gone trick-or-treating for a little bit, Jennie, John and Rian caught up with us and we finished the last few houses. We then watched the old movie Arsenic and old Lace. It was fun to see an old Halloween Movie. Then the kids went to bed...when we went to tuck Abbie into bed her candy bucket was in the bed next to her. We had to convince her that the best place would be on the table in her room. So cute...I am sure they dreamed of candy all night. They loved Halloween and I hope they always love it as much as I do.
