    Good Afternoon!

    Prayers and pixie dust to all those in need.

    Was up most of the night, no idea why I couldn't sleep but I have been dragging today.

    Took a trip to AC Moore and they had a huge assortment of stickers marked down to $1, scored some good finds for upcoming swaps.:cool1: Still not a great selection of Christmas paper out, may have to order online or come up with different ideas. Going to work on partner swap a bit more, drop Julia off at friends for the evening and then crash!

    Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!

    Rachel yeah for up and running machines
    Rebecca thoughts and prayers for you all
    Casey gotta love sales

    been a LONG day here. was up early to clean kitchen and get to moms. We're in full halloween party mode I've got more spooks and gobblins in the barn!!! Lots of fun and since 90% has come from second hand stores CHEAP

    Then ran 4 towns north to a friends 40th bday party and now I'm wiped out. Tomorrow is going to be another long day I want to hit the thrift stores again but Levi has a buddy coming over and Tom's on a job hes hoping tot finish tomorrow. Then Levi has his first CCD @ 4:30 worst time in the world cause nothing good is still open other than box stores. Oh well. should take the computer and design more signage for the party.

    Have a great night all i'm crashing

    Good Morning!

    Joyah- sounds like you are getting ready for a fun party!
    Rachal- Glad the cheering went well and even happier for you that you machines are up and running.
    Nancy- enjoy the precious time with your girl.

    My dad passed away late Friday night and we were called about it on Saturday morning- mom didn't want to ruin our special night at Disney. I spent all of yesterday afternoon on the phone about all kinds of things for dad's services. Finally at about 6pm I decided I had had enough for awhile and we went over to a Saturday night service for a time of praise and worship.

    Today:
    service
    lunch- I will find something here
    viewing for a community member that has lots of family in the church
    shopping for some food
    tackling the living and dining rooms
    begin making a chart of when everyone will be here and what we will need to do about food
    begin looking at and pulling pictures together for a montage of dad for next Sunday's viewing

    Rebecca

    Rebecca, I'm so sorry for your loss. :hug:

    Spent all morning yesterday buying items for my cake decorating class and doing other errands. Brought home lunch and then vegged for the rest of the afternoon and evening. NOTHING we need to do today. DH is going to visit his parents and pick up a few things at Target. Think I'll drag out the Cricut and work on the card and partner swaps.

    I need to make a cake and some icing for class tomorrow. DH is borrowing his mother's KitchenAid mixer, so if I don't do it today, I can do it tomorrow (I've got the day off!).

    We made this in the crock pot yesterday. It was really good and I thought some of you might like the recipe. I would add the chicken broth next time I make it. Bacon Ranch Chicken

    Cassey, I hope you slept better last night.
    Christy, wish we could come for the party! That sounds fun :)
    Rachal, yay for a working computer! Can't wait to see what you make :hyper:
    Cindy, hope you had fun at the game!
    Lisa, I hope you and Megan are having a great weekend at the lodge.

    Have a good Sunday all!

    Rebecca - I send along my condolences on the passing of your father. The Lord has him in his loving arms now.

    Nancy - how wonderful your daughter is home - treasure the moments - she will!

    Hope everyone else has a great long weekend. Knitting up a storm here. Have put the scrapping aside for now, seems that every fall, the needles come out. There are some gorgeous autumn yarns this year, and they create great holiday gifts.

    :grouphug: Rebecca. sending lots of P and PD to you.

    Sounds like everyone is having a decent weekend. the sun is shining here!

    Cleaned up my scrap area yesterday, boy did it need it!

    slept in till 9 am this morning, had brunch.

    now i am finishing up a j's order, got some gc to spend, need some good paper for upcoming projects/swaps, why is it that I never have yellow or orange? and the paper had a coupon for $25 off $75 or more.

    also need to call Disney and set up our DME arrangements and work out some ticket hiccups :) mil deal is way better than the tickets through them. just have to make sure we can bump ours down and save some $$$$

    So far I havent gotten any cutting or scrapping done. Will get moving soon as I am off the phone. a cricut and a cameo cutting at the same time are super loud ;)

    Rebecca, so sorry for your loss... Continued prayers from our home to yours.

    Cheryl, feel better soon!!!

    PJ and I had a blast shopping today!! We hit some major sales and only spent half of our money and got all we needed and lots of extras... She got a gorgeous Liz Claiborne dress at JCP for $10.00!!! It's gorgeous!!!

    Ok, off to spend more time with my girl and do her laundry.. the boys want her to take them for frostys tonight so they can spend some time together... they have been like the 3 amigos since last night...

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Enjoy!!

    Cheryl Hope you kick it soon! I hate being sick and having to do anything

    Nan I bet they're stuck like glue to each other. I love finding deals like that but we have nothing for shopping so great deals are hard to find.

    Party planning is coming nicely. I've spent 150 at the thrift stores and gotten SO much it's scary the best finds were the head from a cosmotology school.
    It's early to bed in our house tonight.

    Thank you Christy..

    The kids have been like glue... they have been tormenting each other, gossiping, chatting, evaluating colleges, and lots of laughter, etc..
