Photo share: All dressed up and goin’ nowhere

Some of you have little girls.  And some of you have little GIRLS!  I never in a million years thought I would have such a little girly girliest of the girls girl.  There is nothing TOM or BOY about it.  It’s a dress everyday no matter what we’re doing.  Like today for instance…


My mom bought this Barbie Jeep from a yard sale last summer, but it didn’t have a battery. She kept it at her house but now that she’s moving, we inherited it. It doesn’t seem to bother Eleanor in the least that it doesn’t go anywhere, she still decided to get dressed and go for a “ride”.

And a bonus feature is the car phone. Not sure how I feel about this… Are we just training our kids to use the phone while they drive? Oh who am I kidding… they’ll have it hard wired to their hands free brains by the time she gets her license.

And I’m afraid Norma gets to ride shotgun and listen to the “pretend” music that Eleanor is singing at the top of her lungs with whether she likes it or not.


I’m pretty lucky that this kid can entertain herself anywhere, anytime, with anything… As long as she has access to her dress collection, she’s good. I could really learn from her. Every time I’m stressed about life… I could probably just put on my party dress and dance away the blues.

I do plan on getting a battery for that car before summer… we’ll see.


Halloween in November


If you don’t plan to scrapbook any other Halloween, plan to do this years. When has Halloween ever been in November?

I couldn’t help but start with this photo because it’s my favorite. It just… looks like I swiped it out of one of my mom’s old photo albums.

We tricked and treated around Grandma’s neighborhood just for a couple hours in the cccccooolld.  But from the looks of their collections of goodies, we could’ve said we were out all day.

This is mostly made up of Jennie Bowlin stuff.  A think I stole the yellow and grey polka dot paper from a Studio Calico kit…  and the instagram button. I just LOVE that. Even though this photo wasn’t an instagram… it looks like it should’ve been.

Up in the top right corner where the scalloped circle is… well the main purpose of that is to cover up a BOOBOO! lol… I frequently get a little quick with the ink pad and end up dropping it on the paper.  So that’s what happened here, i got a big smudge of brown ink up there and I just didn’t like what it did for the page.  So I just punched out a circle and covered it.

IT’s THURSDAY! my fave day! Except for my head hurtsness…. errgh.
And looking forward to some time with friends tomorrow night!… and the next night…
and… hopefully in there do some Holiday decorating around here!

fitts Mcfinister!
