Fun Bits for the Week… September 28, 2009

Fun Bits for the week of Sept 21st…

  • First of all this weather has me completely confused!  I keep thinking it’s October!  It was windy today and half of the leaves are off the trees already, ugh.  I am, however, loving new TV! 
  • We enjoyed some time at Leed’s Farm this past weekend.  Leeds Farm is a pumpkin patch with all sorts of fun things to do, including a hayride, zip lines, a huge bouncy thing, petting zoo and corn maze.  Our friends Nickolas and Delaney joined us.  If you’re local and you haven’t had the chance to check out Leed’s Farm – it’s great fun for the kids!  Unfortunately, I forgot my camera 😦
  • Brooke has now learned how to say “Book” (Brooke) and she calls Kami – “Kams”.  Too cute!
  • Leah got to play soccer in the rain last Saturday and was a real trooper.  Unfortunately she did not score any goals but helped the other team to.  ;(
  • I finally got around to printing some pics this past week – too bad their in California!  I printed them online at and the last time I printed pics was when I was in Anaheim for the CHA winter show!  Ahhhh!

Some soccer pics to share…





  • I noticed while pulling up the pics that Leah gets her tongue out everytime she goes to kick the ball!  The last pic, she’s in the middle trying to push her way through.  Kami wanted Mom to take a pic of her too!

Have a great week!

Fun Bits for the last two weeks…

  • Great labor day weekend – loved having some friends over and enjoyed some yummy food!  Too much yummy food!
  • Leah (6) and Kami (3) point out the scary flies while Brooke (2) picks them up and puts them in the garbage.
  • Kami started preschool.  She LOVES it!  She’s so social – I wish I had some of her boldness.  She has no problem starting a conversation with her little 3 yr old buddies. 







  • Brooke was insisting she was going to school too. 🙂
  • Kami thinks that deer crossing signs are actually for the deer (telling them not to cross the road). 🙂
  • Brooke, when asked, insists her name is “me”. 
  • Leah started playing soccer this year.  She’s had classes and participated in some camps in the past but this is her first year for actual games.  She’s doing great!  She scored 2 goals at her game on Saturday!  Woo Hoo!
  • I got through my first 3 yr old Sunday School class today – they were so well behaved!  I could tell they were very scared of this crazy lady with the weird voice (I have a cold now and when I have a cold my voice is all scratchy and very low). 

Have a great week!



Oh, where oh where… September 17, 2009

does the time go?  We’re heading towards the end of September and I can’t believe it!  The leaves have started changing and you can wear a jacket at night.  Christmas will be here before we know it!   Then, the January CHA show.  It’s funny how my life revolves around tradeshows and designs now. 


Ahhhh, I need some blogging motivation!  I get into it for a day or two and then get side-tracked with a million other things!  Oh my!  I’ve found that it’s easier to post a 10 word sentence on Facebook every now and then, then updating the blog.  Need some inspiration…


No worries, I’m not giving this up, I just need to get my blogging mojo back.  Maybe I should mix it up a bit and change the look or something?  Any ideas?


Shall I leave you with something?


How about a cute little “hi” mini card?  BTW, loving little mini cards to throw in a package! 





How cute is this… September 10, 2009

Sarah Hodgkinson, one of my design team members made this adorable note holder for me. 🙂  It’s a mini grocery bag with vegetable magnets cut out of Jillibean Soup paper.  Too cute!  Sarah is very talented!  To see more of her work, check out her blog here.






Remember to eat your veggies 😉

Fun Bits for the week of August 31st…

First, I just wanted to say that these fun bits have been a great way for me to record everything going on with our family.  I don’t have much time to scrapbook anymore so this is my scrapbooking.  I’ve been told I can pull everything off the blog and have it printed in a book.  Anyone know where I can do that?

Now on to the fun stuff…

  • Leah loving the Hannah Montana movie!  Secretly, I was loving it too.  Well, not loving it but am I going to go out and buy the soundtrack…yes. 🙂
  • The girls helped me “clean” on Saturday.  At the end of the day Leah said that cleaning was hard.  🙂
  • Kami showing me her new “moves” and doing the hip grind.
  • Brooke putting herself in timeout. 
  • Leah doing an awesome job at soccer practice last night!  She’s very aggressive! 
  • Oh, and I don’t have any pics to share  – what?  I don’t know…

Have a great week!
