Project Life - Week 43

I'm going to keep it really brief today since everyone has much better things to do on Halloween than pour over this. 

I went with lots of full sized photos this week and love the look, it came together fairly quickly on Monday until I ran out of color ink in both of my printers, I hate when that happens.  Anyway, I couldn't call it done until yesterday after I ran out for more ink and printed the last two slots.

I hope you have a wonderful Halloween, I'll be back Friday with photos and a recap.

Keep Calm and Pumpkin On

For those that have asked here is the Keep Calm Card that I made for my Week 43 Project Life Title card.

If you right click on the image and Save Picture As, but if you want a larger clearer image, you can download it here.  It is sized to fit in the 3 x 4 pockets.

Enjoy and thanks!

Project Life - Week 42

I cannot believe there are only 10 weeks left for 2012, or that I've actually kept up with this project for 42 straight weeks.  I'm super happy for both I suppose, the last quarter of the year is my favorite and infinitely easier to document with so much fun stuff going on.

Here is a look at the whole spread

and the left side

Our leaves are finally starting to fall here so this seemed appropriate for the title card.

A collage of photos from our drive home from Oregon last Sunday.  I pulled a map off the Internet for the background of the card.

Did you watch this guy jump from space, OMG, the guts it must take to do something like this.  I was thoroughly amazed and Larry watched most of it from my phone on the ride home while I drove.  Sadly the best parts were missed because we lost the signal but it was fun to follow along for sure.

We got the fall decorations out on Monday, its always nice to see something festive on the mantle. 

Larry has been playing this game for awhile now and has amassed quite the pretend fortune for the first time this past week.  It's even higher as I type this, he is having fun seeing how high he can go.

A field trip for preschool, lots of fun.

It's that time of year...!

Here is the right side

Simone got her flu mist and was a real trouper!

A new addition to the family this past week.  This card flips up and there are more photos and details inside.

Food truck yumminess and one sassy little girl!

Larry has been working so hard on his bike and was thrilled when it started up this past week.  Man is it loud! 

I got a trim and the bangs have returned!

My first pumpkin pancakes of the season, yummy for sure.  A cute little book that the kids worked on at school.  Not sure why Simone's is upside down!

We had a little online chat with the new family member and the parents on Saturday.  Thankful for technology when family is farther away than you would like.

It's raining here today as I write this and we're happy to have it, I guess maybe now I can put away the shorts an officially embrace the long pants.

Thanks for stopping by!

Project Life - Week 41

We spent the last week up in Oregon visiting with family so I had lots of good stuff to include this week.

Here is the full spread minus an insert that I added

and the left side

The paper for the title card is digital and its from Ali Edwards.  I shrank it down and recolored the background on this particular sheet from white to orange.

A photo I snapped of Simone at picture day for soccer.

Last Sunday was cool enough in the morning to warrant some slippers and a shot of a really big rock chip we got on our windshield while driving up to Oregon.  Thankfully we were able to have it fixed.

A shot of our GPS, yes, it's a long drive!  Gas was cheaper in Oregon, thankfully.

We always stop on our way up at the Dunsmuir park to eat lunch, its a lovely place and Simone loves to run around an play for a bit.

Some lunch in Eugene

The insert is from our day at the Pumpkin Patch. The outhouse picture of Larry and I is so funny, I love that one.  It was a really nice day warm enough to ditch our sweaters.  The paper I used was also from that digital paper set of Ali's that I linked to above.

Here is the right side

We spent one afternoon at the mall.

Mom took me to her monthly Bunco game, I won!

Picked up some of these tasty treats, so good and watched a lot of baseball.  Some games were great...

Sadly, some weren't.  But this month we had a perfectly aligned calendar.

A date afternoon/evening for us.

And Simone got her fill of the cats.  Sassy was much more receptive to her constant petting and pestering this trip so much so she felt at ease hanging out in Simone's car seat.

We hit the ground running when we got home, it's been so busy, especially getting ready for Halloween!  So much left too do still but thanks for stopping by!

the Pumpkin Patch

The best part of the Fall Season are visits to the Pumpkin Patch. We went to a great one yesterday while visiting family and Simone had a blast.

On Monday Simone has a field trip to another pumpkin patch for school. That one should be fun as well, she's excited to go with her school friends.

I hope you are enjoying Fall as well, it's a great time of year.

Project Life - Week 40

40! What an amazing number!  Week 40 is done, so happy to see this weeks pages in the book.

Here is the full spread

and the left side

Super cute new paper from Amy Tangerine, just begging to be colored in!

If you know me, you know this is true!

A facebook exchange, missing some family and a favorite show is back for the fall season.

A photo from the card making and super cute box that came in the mail.

It didn't seem like October 1st, but the Halloween decorations are out at school and it was super hot!  I'm thinking this was our last 100° day for the year though, hopefully!

We got Boo'ed this past week by a school friend of Simone's, it was the cutest thing ever.  I need to Boo someone back...

Here's the right hand side

Training for parent subs and volunteers this past week and my first Pumpkin Spice Frap, super good!

Larry's been hard at work on one of his vintage bikes, I love that he can do this kind of stuff.

Regular routine stuff this past week.

The first day in long pants and a Happy Birthday!

Gas prices are disgusting!

And the chocolate milk you saw on Monday.
