I've Finally Got Something Worth Saying...

...so I'm gonna say it.  HA!  Really, to tell you the truth, it's just been very busy around these parts.  Not that all of you haven't been busy...I'm just sayin'.

For those of you who follow my crazy antics on Facebook, you probably know that we went to my hubby's sister's wedding last weekend.  A little bit of car trouble (a check engine light & a flat tire...just not all at once), a craft show:

some corn:

and a BEATUTIFUL ceremony.  It was a great weekend!

My sister-in-law and her new hubby OJ.  Congrats!

This past weekend was just as busy.  My busy little nephew Michael turned 5 on Sunday.  My sister threw him a cuper cute Halloween birthday party.  All his little friends from daycare came to celebrate:

(You can tell I am getting older when I start to twitch over 6 little five-year olds!)

We had witches and cowgirls...

...and Batman & soldiers...

...a Gladiator (this is Andrew...the "big" kid cousin)

...and a vampire!  Michael, you look so spooky!  Happy Birthday!

I love being the "crafty aunt."  I get to make cool little things for the kids.  And since Andrew is getting older, I take every opportunity I can.  I made these cute little owl-treat bags for the birthday kids:

I don't know about the kids, but I know the moms really loved them!  I borrowed the idea from here

Next, I getting ready to go away for a weekend scrap event in MA.  I haven't really worked on my own albums all year, and I think my family is starting to notice.  Andrew asked me if I was ever going to put together anymore Disney albums.  (We've been 11 times and I have one album completed.  Yikes!)  So, the plan is to make up kit packs & spend the whole weekend scrapping.  We'll see how much I get done...sometimes my need to socialize gets in the way!  Wish me luck!

The wedding picture is beautiful! Congrats to your sister in-law and new hubby! Looks like the kids had a great time at Michael's birthday party. Lots of great costumes, but I think your treat bags were the best! Those were so cute. I hope you have a great time at your little scrappin retreat!!

THank for all your help at NESC! Your advice really paid off for me at the tag sale. I was happy to see you today. Love the pics of the Halloween party - but the treat bags are truly awesome! Enjoy some "you" time at the scrap weekend.
