For all you crafty crafters out there...

So there's this adorable little website I must tell you about:

Cutest stuff you ever saw! And I know the gal who is the boss at said website, and somehow that makes me feel just a little bit famous!

I want to buy this whole collection and do a girl's playroom. Which is too bad, since I do not have a playroom for either gender. Here's to hoping!

Side note: Just read a series called "Ember" by Jean DePrau (sp?). I would give them a 7.9- again something geared toward teens, so of course I read it. Her books are not written in chronological order, which I thought was a little confusing. Their order was: 2, 3, 1, 4. Maybe just read "Prophet of Yonwood" either first or last. Not third. There is also a movie of "Ember" which much to producer Tom Hanks' chagrin is admittedly poo.

No, no. He's a boy. That's why he's in blue.

We were having a case of serious girly hair. But it honestly made my heart ache to cut it. I keep thinking he might be my last baby, and I want him to stay little as long as possible. Plus, when I would touch the back of his head it felt like a little lamby-bum! In this picture I had just combed it out- it is so curly, I didn't really know where to start. I thought if it was a little straighter it would be easier, but this is as straight as it gets.
Got the back all trimmed.I took off over an inch all over his head.
And he knows that he is one handsome little devil.
Please note his hilarious Goofy teeth. It has taken him 14 months to get them! He has one on the bottom and two HUGE teeth coming in on the top! They are almost the same size as my teeth. Gage had the same thing. He did grow into them so they don't look so strange now. I'm assuming the same thing will happen to Krew.

I kinda like to look at it too...

I had a few requests to reopen my "house for sale" blog. I had it set to private now that the house has sold, but I'm going to open it up for a little longer. I will probably take it down eventually. I'll put it on the to-do list. ; )

"I have pumpkin skids on my hand!" -Jocelyn

Isn't this a cute picture of the kids with their jack-o-lanterns? Oh, you can't see them? They're standing right behind their pumpkins... Gage did two-face. Very clever.
The Jossy-lantern!
I came up with that all my own.
You can't see it, but it has a bow and lovely hair.

And Lauren's needs a better candle.
Joss thought Tony's interpretation of pumpkin hair was sub-par. "It just looks like grandpa Jenks."
Many a pumpkin has been carved in this kitchen.

And I'm starting the Ouch-of-the-Month club. Lauren is president.
Look how nicely her golf club hole is healing!

Which is good, 'cause now she has room for a goose egg. You can't really tell, but she also has a black eye. Goose egg is from jumping off Gage's bed onto the trundle. She missed. Black eye is from trying to balance on the headboard and falling, smashing her cheek on the desk.
I moved her upstairs to David's old room. There is no furniture. Just a mattress. Hopefully there she will be safe(ish).
