We watched a wooly bear cross our path. We were 'warned' by passers-by in the other direction of a coyote and a bobcat. Oddly enough the family walking with a 5 year old and a 2 year old did NOT see any of these things. Could it have been the peace and quiet that accompanied us on our walk?
I was awed by the beauty that fall is offering us here in Texas this year. We've had a lot of rain and the trees are actually holding on to those leaves for a bit longer than normal. I fell back a lot. I liked watching my kids and my husband intereact. And, I'll admit, the farther back I got the quieter it was.

When did this happen?
When did they stop being babies

Don't get me wrong, I'm SOOOO not one of those moms that is going to have a hard time letting him go to school. If anything I'm a little bummed that his birthday is just a hair too late to have started already. I just can't believe that he's gone from this little bundle of spit up to this.
Yes, he's four although he looks six or seven but sometimes acts two. He's bright and funny. he can make up a story that goes on and on and, sometimes, on and on and on. He knows how to push my buttons and is constantly blaming things on his sister. He's a great hugger and will talk the ear off of anyone who will listen. He's sensitive and a bit self-centered. He's definitely unique and marches to his own drummer. I wouldn't change a thing... Well, not at this moment... There are days though...

Look... There's even a rainbow.
Big sister Grace first helped remove the flower from her hair which was soon followed by the removal of the paci. Now, a lot of things happened all at once but once the paci was gone we got this...
I know I'm horrible taking pictures in her time of distress but it was so cute and her mom was right there.
As you can see, NO babies were harmed in the taking of these photos.

You see it. It's the coolest pattern you've ever come across. You don't need it. You have more paper now than a human could ever possibly use but what if you never see it again. That hand reaches out involuntarily and throws it in the cart. You probably need more than one sheet. Oh, and don't forget to get stuff to coordinate with it. What's the good of having it if you have nothing to go with it. It's like a new outfit with the wrong shoes; it just doesn't work. Before you know it you've picked up one of those HUGE packs of coordinating papers. I mean, heck, it's on sale after all. Then, if you're like me, you put it in your pile and maybe use a couple sheets before it gets more paper that you had to have piled on top of it.
It's a never ending cycle. I know I should probably see if there is a paper crafters anonymous group to join but I'm not hurting anyone and I can stop any time I want to. I just choose not to.
Anyway. Here are some of my recent crafty endeavours. I made them at night in IL. when everyone else was asleep. They were gifts for our IL babysitters who probably had WAY too much other stuff to do but still came over and played with our kids while we went out for grown up time.
