For Me - Flight Suit Bag

 I have been dying to make one of these for myself!  This is a bigger version of a handbag I made this summer.  I wanted to have one big enough  to be a "Mommy Bag".
I still need to add a big flower to it but was too excited to use it that I will wait on it :)
 Did I say that I totally LOVE this bag?!  Cause I do!
 Notice Monkey feet standing and waiting to fill "Mommy bag!"  with a diaper and blanket.
 Thought I would show you it all full too.  I made the inside pockets big enough for my paper brain and for diapers (I hate it when they get all mushed at the bottom of your bag).
Is it wrong to be in love with a bag?  Well I don't care,  I love it anyway :)

EJRT Falcons Place 2nd!

 So Austin played football this year and can I just say.... he LOVED it!  I am so proud of him!  His team made it all the way to the championship game and ended up placing second out of their age division.  Just so you know: In OK football and baseball are religions.  Watch out :)

Halloween - Take 2

This is what the kiddos wore for the Base Halloween party.

For Lauren

 This sweet gal has a hubby that washed chapstick in his pocket :)  I totally knew what to do...
And the bag turned out perfect if I do say so myself. 

This bag was delivered just before Halloween and I saw her at the craft show a few weeks ago toting this bag and telling me how much she loves it!

Trunk or Treat

 Tonight we had the annual Trunk or Treat at church.  I got the kiddos to stand still long enough to get a couple of pics.  And FYI, Ashley is Homicidal Maniac (they look just like everybody else :)).  Goofy girl!
We took the neighbor kids with us and they had a blast too!

Portfolio from this month...

 Here are a few favorite shots from my last few sessions.  Last weekend I did the wedding of P&C Bacon.  They are so cute and sweet!

 We had so much fun once they loosened up :)

The night before was his younger brothers Eagle Court of Honor.  Congrats D, what a great accomplishment!

 Before that there was a maternity/family shoot for my sweet friend S and her family.  They jsut moved to Seattle and I was sad to see her go.

 The above is a shot for the Hall family.  They won a photo package that I donated to the MDG Booster Club's Auction.

 These last few were some pictures for a wonderful family from church.  Dad just deployed not too long ago, and they wanted some pics before he left.

 I really love taking pics for military families.  Maybe it is because they are such a big part of my life, or that I know what they are going through.  I just enjoy being a part of making a physical memory that they can hold onto when they are apart.  
Thank You R for Serving!

September & October...so far

 Seems like I have been taking a lot of pictures for others lately and not my family.  But I know that a family update is needed.  Austin is still playing football and LOVING it.  He is one good lineman.   These first few pictures are of the Homecoming parade that Ashley marched in.  It was so funny; they just marched around the neighborhood that the school was in and called it a night.  Gotta love a small town!

 Here are the little girls in their "bat caves" (laundry baskets with blankets and pillows), don't ask I have no idea where that came from, during Conference.  Everyone really paid attention and it was a wonderful Conference!

 These 2 pictures were taken the night that my flash came in the mail.  If you know my house you know that the family room is the darkest room in the house.  These were in the evening after scouts and I was pretty happy with myself!  (you will have to ignore that laundry basket in the back, we were having a laundry party)
And I had to add a HUGE thank you to all those that kept my sweet Bear in their prayers, and came to give her blessings this past week.  She had a health scare, we thought that she had appendicitis, and it took a few days once they figured out what was going on for her to even begin to feel better.  I am happy to report that the sweet girl actually ate breakfast this morning and hopefully will continue on the road to recovery (Which I wish would move faster, I hate watching her in pain).

Football and Fall

 I have to apologize that these are not that great and most will be re-taken this afternoon.  But they were sweet for the most part :)

I have pretty eyes!

New 4 Monkey

 My friend and neighbor gave me this table and chair set on Saturday.  Little did I know that fixing it up would require 2 trips to each Lowe's and Hobby Lobby,  6 cans of spray paint and a huge lesson in patience. 
 This is the original color that I painted them "raspberry", however since I failed to prime first the wood repelled the paint. grrrr....
 When I went from primer and paint I found that they were out of "raspberry" and had to settle with watermelon, only to learn that for some reason it still wasn't gonna take the paint well. 
 So I have decided that I will not cause myself any more grief (or cans of spray paint) and just call it "rustic".
 About 2 months ago a friend of ours gave us a big girl bed for Monkey.  I wanted to make sure that she was good at sleeping in it before I took down the crib.  I added her table and then the kitchen that she got for her birthday.

"Ahhh!  My Room?  Thanks Mommy!"
Ashley has informed me that this is the ultimate little girls room!

Bags, Bags and More Bags! - Flight suit bags

 I have been really busy lately with loads  of orders and thought that I would share a few of the bags that I finished in the last week.  This top bag is my new favorite,  I am in total LOVE with it!
 I really enjoy making these and giving these ladies a piece of their hubby that they can take with them no matter where he, or she may be. 
The more I make the more I really tweak and have fun with them.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested.
