Pumpkin Patch Time!

I feel really behind here. We have had a lot going on this month. I did manage to get the boys to a pumpkin patch last week in between the rain! Here are a few of the pictures. It definitely is hard to get one of the 3 of them but it was nice to get some. They did a few mazes with slides, picked some cool gourds (sp?), checked out all the animals, and then we had homemade pumpkin donuts and hot chocolate.

October layouts featuring Sassafrass!

This has got to be my favorite October kit that we have done! (and it is our 4th!). I love the new papers from Sassafrass! We have included 10 papers this month! There is a variety to work with! My favorite part were the Sassafrass borders, journaling cards and circles! I loved using all of these because they coordinated so well!
I knew when I saw these papers that I have to do a Fall page. I had these pictures of the boys that I never scrapped. Ezra was still sitting in the bumbo last fall :) I started by using the glass slipper bling as my background and then added the orange polka dot paper and fruition paper. I printed a color 5x7 and 3 small black and white photos. I added one of the photos to one of the journaling cards and tied a piece of the orange ribbon to it. After a few addiitions of brads, ribbon, acrylic and a flower - the page felt complete. I did a simple Fall title with the alphabet.

Ezra at 17 months. We just got this picture done and the colors were perfect for this paper! I decided to use the circles to journal different things about Ezra at this age on them. I used brads and ribbon pieces to attach them to the papers! I layered a few different pattern papers and traced an arrow to place my title on. The journaling reads:17 months...
You have a great smile and love to Laugh!
You love music and love to dance. You don't like TV but you do like music!
You love to get into everything especially the refridgerator. You love snacks and milk.
You are a busy toddler but bring us so much joy! We love you and are blessed to have you!

Ok so i must start by telling you that this is jenny's idea :). This is one sheet of paper that had different patterns on it. Instead of cutting it up, I just added photos and titles to each of the paper sections. I added a few brads, ribbons and a flower to complete it. It is a little busy but nice to capture these pictures on one layout.

Our baby is growing up!

Our little Ezra will turn 18 months this week -where did the time go? He looks and acts like a little boy now! No more baby...

Last night he slept in his own bed. For several reasons we never used a crib with our boys but usually around 18 months they were ready for the their own bed! We have set it up in our room and he did a great job! He was so excited to get in it. I am sure it will wear off but glad it he likes it so far!

He loves getting in the car with daddy before he leaves for work!
After a date night, we came home and the babysitter said he fell asleep and the cat got up there and laid with him!
He loves to play outside!
This is a dog we met at the park that he loved! He kept hugging the dog!
He is full of energy but a lot of fun! I am so happy we have Ezra in our family!
