Where has the month gone?

This month has flown by!
So I'm in the mood for a quick recap before I forget what we've done!
We're in full swing with red ribbon week at school.
Last week I took these photos because each girl had to send in a picture of then being "helpful".

Yes, Charlotte's photo is totally staged and Pinky was not a willing participant!
She was "helping" me feed the dog aka hold dog hostage with a bag of kibble while I took several unsatisfactory photos because they were holed up in a dark corner of my scrap room!

 Miss Nora's photo is totally genuine.
She did empty that dishwasher and put away every dish!
Bravo Nora!

 Playing with my new iPhone means taking "artsy" pumpkin pictures.
The composition here....I don't know!!!
I thought the pumpkin picture would look good in my scrapbook pages of fall!  ha!

 Halloween party at a friend's house included decorating spooky cut outs.
They look delightful and they must have tasted good because I never got one.
They were eaten up after this photo was taken by two little girls.  Hmmm.

Oh my gosh!
Fried cake doughnuts never tasted better!

My attempt to get scrappy.

Charlotte's attempt to hijack my scrappy.
And Nora's successful cookie decorating.

Both girls are going to be pirates this year and I can't wait to see them together in their costumes.
Last year, they were both witches.
I love that they have been coordinating their costumes the last couple of years!
Bravo ladies!

Come to me!

You will be mine and I eagerly await your arrival!
And if you do not show up on Friday, I will cry.
A lot.

Bye Summer, Hello Fall

 Charlotte Jane is in first grade!
Say what!!!
Our fashion social diva has a full day of school, finally.
I worried about having some stinky mornings, because she is NOT a morning person,
but she has adjusted very well. I think it's because school is fun!  
She doesn't mind getting up and an earlier bedtime helps too.

Nora took the photo above.  I think she did a splendid job!
Next I'm going to scrap Nora's 1st day of 2nd grade.  Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of Nora with me and Craig.  I didn't feel confident about handing over my D90 to Charlotte, at least in the presence of Craig!  I mean the poor guy looks a little uncertain with Nora holding it!  Ha!

Sure sign that summer is over.  The tearing down of our little pool.
