Humpty Zombie

Humpty Zombie sat on a wall Humpty Zombie had a great fall all the kings horses and all the kings Zombie couldn't put Humpty together again.

I was in a  fairy tail Zombie swap over at Yarnigras

I decided to make Humpty Dumpty I found a pattern Here
It was a cute Humty but made with red Gingham fabric.
I decided my guy needed Halloween fabric so I went with pumpkins orange and black stripes and eyes balls.
I used rhinestones for zombie eyes  and gave him a few stitches.

I think he turned out fun!! 
Beeny did too now he thinks I need to make him one.

Bats Bats and more Bats!!

So I saw this idea last year my friend posted it on her face book page so I decided to do it this year.
I looked on line and found this fun bat template from country living where I think my friend got the idea.
So I spent the a half hour cutting out bats while watching a TV show that I dvrd.

I love how it turned out.
(don't mind the curlers in my hair)

My kids were excited to see all the bats all over the house when they cam home from school.

I had a qustion about what the bats are made from and how to hang them.
The bats are made from black card stock I also made some different ones from black glittered card stock.
I used scotch tape to hang the bats.

A little batty!

I saw a wreath made out of book pages on pintrest and decided to duplicate it.
I did not have a fancy punch so I just free handed the pieces.
I love the way it turned out.

So here is how I made it.

I cut tons of wavy circle pieces,
And glued them to a cheap willow wreath I got from the dollar store.

I continued until it was compleatly full.

I then cut bats out using this template put crystal eyes on them then glued them to the wreath.

I love how the crystals look on the bats.

It looks lovely on my front door.
This wreath was simple and easy to make.

Look a likes !

Last night Mrs. Kadie bug sent me this picture of little Boone with his shirt on his head she added a message saying " do you remember a picture of me like this?"

Dale and all my kids started laughing when they saw the picture and said we have a picture of Kadie as a baby looking the same way.
We did not find the shirt picture but we found the bloomer picture.

Kadie was about one in this picture.
She was so cute just like her Boone baby.
We love that Kadie sends us lots of pix of our grand baby and we cant wait to see him in November.

PS for all you momma that had baby's in the late 80's early 90's remember the colored diapers.
she is wearing pink ones here but I remember her having ones with roses by LUVS.

Garden of the Gods Junkies.

Saturday we found our selves at Garden of the Gods again we had planed to hike somewhere else but Dale found out that they were hosting a car show so we had to go.

If there is one thing to know about my hubby is he loves old cars and loves going to classic car shows.

My boys love going too
me on the other hand not so much.

So instead of looking at cars I find other ways to entertain myself while my hubby talks and talks and talks and talks to the cars owners.

So I take pictures of my shadow

a Bee

A deer.

and 2 blanket flowers.

After the car show we went to find some hiking trails.

We found a trail with a fun bridge and had to take some super model pix at leats Mylissa and I did while everyone was in the bathroom.
Note to self get rid of these ghastly nickers that are sagy and icky looking on me.

Yes a hot super model I am!

Next time I will just stick my booty out like Mylissa 

Or make squinty sexy face.

After the bathroom break we tried our best to get a normal picture but hey my family's not normal so that did not work.

So we hiked and climbed on rocks Maddie gets the best rock climbing shoe award,
you know you cant go wrong with patriotic flip flops.

And don't you like my poser, alright that's enough mom and I am happy lets jump snap shot.

What really surprised me and Maddie too was that Mylissa garbed Maddie and said say cheese
normally all you hear from Mylissia is Maddie you are so annoying.

There was this one rock we called graffiti rock tons of names and he loves me.

Don't ask

My hiking shoes are just as perfect as Maddies don't you think. 
Yes this was a little random.

We walked back to the bridge and Benny said take a picture of me being the troll under the bridge.

As I was taking troll pictures Dale shouts take a picture of this.
 we thought it was a widow until we got home and looked at the picture.

At the bridge again we you guessed it we had to get a kissy pictuer.

After taking a ton of kissy pictures we were beat so we started our fun ride home to have a traditional wilderness family movie night.

Don't mess with me or I'll get you.

Garret is in football this year his first year ever playing he was recruited by his cross country coach.
He showed up to the first pre practice and promised a place on the 1st string team.
After a few practice Garrett said this is hard work I think if we gave him the option he would have quit.
Garrets first game was a nail biter for me I never wanted my kids to play foot ball because of injurrys.
His first game was riddled with injured kids from the other team. 
Garrett's team won 36 to 12

Yesterdays game was a so fun to watch the boys were over the first game jitters and played awesome they had no penaltys and they worked well as a team.

I am impressed out how much sportsmanship they have as a team they always hi 5 slap each other on the back and cheer them on.

You should here them cheer on Sam their quarter back The kid is fast and scores half the  games points.
He is such a tiny little thing he's 2 feet shorter than Garrett.

I am so glad I got these next sequence of pictures it show Garrett doing his thing.

You can see the boy on the other team # 38 with the ball and Garrett #70 going for him.

You can see Garret has him by the waist.

And he is down.

The boys one the Game 48 to 8.
After the boys win the gather together in a circle and sway back and forth while the boy in the middle calls a chant in tongen that they repeat.
Its truly touching to watch.
Like I said before these boys are a tight team that respect and love one another. Most of these boys play other sports together that makes their bonds closer.

We has to quickly leave after the game to go to a funereal

So Garrett had to change at the car instead of in the locker room.

When he took his shoulder pads off he had sweat marks that looked like angels wings to me.
I like to think that he has angels on his shoulders watching out for him as he's playing the game so he dose not get hurt. 

I cant wait for his game next week.
