Another Elf Hat

So, because I can tool this out quicker than it takes me to paint a painting - here is my latest creation. A very small gift for a very small head. I'm sure it will adorn the chubby cheek princess better than lil man's rhino, LOL!

BSC Invitational

This pic is of lil girl kicking butt and taking names. Hubby and friend thought she was disqualified however she was NOT. There were some weird things going on at that meet. She's loving this swim thing and I hope she sticks with it for a LONG time to come.

My Poor Lil Man

So, last week, I get a call from lil man's daycare saying he's getting a rash. I take him to the doctor and find out it's Fifths Disease, which means, by the time the rash shows up, he's no longer contagious. No one else in the house got it.


So, he's feeling all better and then a week later the poor lil man wakes up with a fever. Here he is asleep drooling on the couch. My poor guy, he feels sad he says :( Right now we are letting the fever do it's work, but if it keeps up, to the doctor we go again.

Santa Claus is coming to town...

and apparently gonna make my son cry - LOL. Ok, seriously, all the people freaked him out, and here I am taking pictures of him instead of swooping up and saving the day. SO here he is, balling, mad, overall disappointed with me. On the second song a teacher gave him some bells to jingle. THAT made him happy.
This Saturday morning we get to have breakfast with Santa and make stuff, then on SUNDAY we get to eat dinner with him. How cool is that? Oh, and I'll be posting some of Lil girl's X-mas performance after Thursday - she's gonna be a snow princess - this should be fun ;)

All Hallows Eve

The good news - Princess Lea was able to have a very successful eveing of tricks or treats....

The bad news, lil dude decided to get pink eye and two ear infections, thus staying at home with dad and greeting folks with candy from a distance as to not spread the wonderful virus. No costume this year, he didn't seem all that upset though.

Now, to make the candy last until Christmas - hehehehehehe

Quick update from busy life.....We close on a house (hopefully) Nov 5th. I got my substitute teaching license and orientation taken care of. Hubby is very busy teaching. Here's a pick of lil girl enjoying her new bunk bed that took FOREVER to get a replacement part for. 

Here is one painting from my series "Melissa". The skin color is off from the other two so I shall be going back in and reworking and changing some things.  
Enjoy your fall weather, more to come.....
