Halloween 2013 with the Grands

Kali, Caroline, Eli and Alex went to a grand Halloween party at Avery Island last night to celebrate with friends. There were hotdogs, treats and a huge bon fire to add to the excitement. There was also a costume contest and everyone enjoyed that a whole lot! I created this little layout using photos that Krista had on her camera. Hope everyone had a great holiday!

Antique Train Case

I’ve heard these pretty little bags referred to as train cases, makeup cases and overnight bags, regardless what you call them, I think they’re adorable and have collected three of them. I’m not sure what I will do with them, at one time I was collecting them to give to the grandchildren for a little train ride to New Orleans that we would do with them.  Then I thought they would make a sweet little gift for Kali and a few girl friends for a slumber party. But as of yet I have not decided, but I will keep collecting them if I see more. I am fond of these in the soft gray green color. Some day I will use them, right now I’ve got them in my office closet, just waiting til I find a good idea.

Halloween with Family and Friends

On Saturday night Alex, Eli, Kali and Caroline attended a fun party and hay ride with their friends and family at our friend Johnny and Kathy’s house, they are so gracious to have hosted this party for quite a few years and we are lucky to be counted in their circle of friends and included with the ‘kids’ and their ‘kiddos’.


Kali was a 20’s flapper girl and Alex and Eli were Power Rangers. They all had a blast at the party and can’t wait to go trick or treating this coming week with their cousins!


Our little Linee wore a Dorothy costume that I made for Kali when she was a year and a half, she had adorable red bows on her shoes and in her hair but she took a nap while they were on the hay ride and woke up later at the party and I was able to get this rumpled photo of her, but its that smile that I adore!

CHS Mass day for Kali

Thursday of last week was homecoming week Mass for the students of CHS. Kali was adorable in her Mass uniform and I was able to shoot a few photos before school.


Love how these turned our and will be printing one for our home. Smile

CHS Homecoming Week (Dress up Day 2)

Today Kali chose to dress up as a COP in the Cops vs Robbers dress up day at school. She made an awesome little girlie cop with her braided bun that Mama fixed for her and her whistle and badge finished off the adorable costume. I created a layout using many papers and elements from different Shabby Miss Jenn Designs kits to add to Kali’s album.

Can’t wait to see what she dresses as for the Math-lete vs athlete day tomorrow! Stay tuned!

CHS Homecoming Week 2013

Kali and I have been having fun planning her outfits for Homecoming week at CHS. Its her first homecoming week at her new school and we’re sure she’s going to have a blast. Monday is Cowboys vs. Indians day and she wanted to be a cowgirl, so we ordered a cute little costume online and pulled together boots and put her hair in pigtails with bows. Below is a layout I created using Shabby Miss Jenn Designs “Little Buckeroos” kit.

CHS Cowgirl

Before school today Krista and I helped her get ready and I did her hair before she ate her fruit cup and buttery biscuit, just like a true country girl. I took a few photos as I will all week and will share them with you here in my blog.
