What perfect weather to hit the neighborhood! It was freezing at the beginning of the week and all of the sudden it is almost 70 degrees!
As you can see, Jack was "V" from the movie V for Vendetta and Isabel was a kitty of course:)
Tons of candy, treat bags, face painting and games with the school parties too!
The kids had a great Halloween and are already trying to figure out their costumes for next year:)

Thing 1 and Thing 2

Finally a little bit of time for my personal blog! Things are just crazy! School, school activities, homework, swimming lessons twice a week, not to mention that we just sanded and refinished the floors in the entire back of the house, ha. AND are painting the entire house! Jack's room is pretty much finished and looking very cool. We decided to go with a cranberry color for Isabel's room and well lets just say that IT IS DARK! I am not sure if we are going to keep it or not. If not, you know what that means, 2 coats of primer at least and then a different color. lol. Did I mention that we are NOT hiring this out, just me and the hubs doing it all :)
So lets see, that leaves our bedroom, the hall, the kitchen, dining and living room to prime, paint the walls and trim and the ceilings too! OMG, that is stressing me out, lol.
Did I also mention that before starting on this project, I had spent 3 days cleaning the house like a crazed lunatic!! I was not really aware of the house renovation until it was already going on. I am not good with surprises like this, lol. I am trying to be positive and think of the end result though, love me some freshly painted walls and lovely floors!! Ok, enough about that!

Business in our LOVES ME NOT etsy shop, is FABULOUS!! Amy and I couldn't be happier!! We have all kinds of new ideas rolling around in our brains too!! :) If you haven't checked us out, come on over!!

Now for a few pics!! These were taken a couple of weeks ago with the new Nikon D90. Here are Thing 1 and Thing 2 (lol), goofing around down by the river. Notice the changes in Isabel on these pics, from posing, to having a good time, to OK enough is enough. lol.
