Exciting times!!

Lots of fun things going on here at the household!

Here are some pics from my cousin's wedding on Saturday. They aren't the best, but you get the idea!!

(clockwise from top left: Jack and baby Joscelyn - yep, he loves her!, my great Uncle and cousin (his daughter), Macy and Mandy (her cousin, the bride's daughter), my Grandmother and other great Uncle, my cousin Amy and the girls!)

The 3 sisters: my Aunt Jean, Aunt Barb and my mom. Man do they look more alike than ever! They would probably kill me if they knew I was posting this on the internet, but, they don't know I have a blog, unless someone rats me out!! Hey, they probably don't even know what a blog is! LOL

Me and the kids glittered pumpkins on Sunday. They may not be like Martha's, but they had an awesome time doing it!! I used my Making Memories glitters that I bought so long ago and never took out of the package! LOL

We also made pipe cleaner people that day!

AND, Macy has been practicing on the teeny tiny 12" bike without any training wheels!! She got it!!! She can ride the sidewalk and not touch down with her feet!! Of course, her knees almost hit the handlebars and the seat is cranked as high as it will go, but we thought it best for her to practice on this one first!!

Now we need to transition to her 20" bike!! That will probably be rough!! It is pretty big. I did put a wanted out on Freecycle to see if anyone has a 16" that they'd be willing to part with, but no bites.

Have a great day!!

Looks like everyone had a grand ole' time at the wedding. Weddings are always so much fun. Love the photo of your mom and her sisters and my goodness they do look very much alike! BTW- I don't think they even know what a blog is, lol.
You and the kiddos did an awesome job on the pumpkins! Love the green one.
It certainly looks like Macy is ready for a 20" bike and soon. She is on a roll!

Love your pumpkins and pip cleaner people!

Great pics from the wedding!

Congrats to Macy! She will don great on 20" once she gets used to it!

Your family's glitter pumpkins are way much cuter than Martha's.

Always enjoy reading your blog full of fun creative posts.
