fall flurries

Another Allyscraps page - all of this gorgeous Reminisce fall line is available in the store there! I had so much fun getting these pics of the boys playing in a GREAT pile of leaves! I really liked the effect of the large photo, even though the kids are a bit blurred.
I used to love fall leaf-jumping, and it seems that the apple – or leaf! – doesn’t fall far from the tree! What a great time on a beautiful fall day. 10-25-07

hayride by moonlight

This is one of my November pages for Allyscraps, and is based on my sketch posted there!


St. Angela’s School had a “family hayride night” at Kerber’s Dairy this year! Daddy had never been there before. Jacob and Kathy went with us, and we also saw lots of other school friends.The boys all fun a blast, and especially liked the corn maze and playground. It was pretty dark by the time our ride started, which made it hard to see much. But, it definitely gave the whole event a somewhat mysterious and spooky atmosphere, as the wagon made its way through the deep, dark woods.After the ride, everybody enjoyed an ice cream treat… while sitting outside in the chilly fall night air!

sharing the moment

Love the Basic Grey Recess! I did this layout to go with a sketch challenge at Allyscraps!


What a big day, and it's so fun to watch the excitement that the two of you share! It's Tyler's first day of preschool at St. Angela's! Ryan has been so eager to finally have his little brother going to the same school that he goes to. And now, the long-awaited day has arrived! It is truly the start of a new era. And Tyler, don't worry - big brother is there beside you, every step of the way. August 27, '07

on the fast track

Scrapdango's November kit - love that Sweetwater, especially the fun chipboard embellies!
One of the highlights of our day at the South Park VIP recreation area – the go karts. Ryan had a blast! There was a kids’ track where he was able to be behind the wheel himself. On the bigger track, he rode shotgun with daddy and they both had a great time.

simple fun

You were so excited about Preschool! The day after your first day, you insisted on wearing your backpack around the house (and not much else!), and had a blast playing with your lunchbox.

feeling blue?

Also from the great Sweetwater kit from Scrapdango!

quirky you

I loved working with the November kit from Scrapdango!
Just one of your quirky habits. You have perfected the one-handed-toy-clutching-thumb-sucking maneuver. It’s definitely a uniquely-Tyler talent!
