Where have I been hiding?

Wow, life does seem to get in the way of playing now doesn't it? I am happy to say that things are getting back into a normal routine. Fingers crossed. The last two weeks have been crazy hectic. Nan ended up in the hospital but is back home and doing fabulous! Halloween!! WOW, my kid has more of a social life then myself!! Parties left, right and center! We went trick or treating and he was VERY reluctant and just wanted to go home. Can you believe that? Kids these days have so much that Halloween just isn't what it use to be. When we were young it was the one time a year that we got LOADS of FREE treats. We ran as fast as we could from door to door. Went home to reload!! lol Growing up in a house with one income and four kids was not the best for treats. Halloween was the one time that we got everything for ourselves! We didnt have to share! We did mind you, we traded goodies. I will give you two Snicker bars for 6 rockets. Come on people that was a good deal. TWO bars for some measly candies. Ahhh, good times.
My little Darth Vader. Connor has never seen the Star Wars movie, he knows DV from a video game he LOVES to play! Obsessed with that game like Mommy is to digi scrapping!

Sean and I were invited to an adult Halloween party this year. It was so much fun! It was strange to see people that I have known of years let loose and have fun. I know all of Sean's coworkers from the Christmas parties and weddings but there were always children around. This is the first time it was just adults and boy did we have fun! We didnt have much time to prepare costumes so I went as a witch and Sean painted his face to look like a skull. He did a pretty good job too! Especially considering it was his own face!!

I also threw on my hat to go Trick or Treating with Connor. We got Tracey to snap a few pictures before we left. By the end of the evening I had completely removed my accessories.

Yesterday we took Connor skating for the first time! He had gone twice before with his Dad but this was the first time I had seen him skate. I was so proud of him. He wanted to go by himself and no matter how many times he fell he got right back up and tried again. I am seriously considering buying myself a pair of skates to go with him some time. Sean too! The three of us can hold each other up! lol

I have also been really wanting to scrap. I havent had the time really to sit down with anything for awhile. Last night I said I was taking some time to do a layout. I have only ever taken part in the Digi Dares once or may be twice but I was very inspired this week. Not that they arent normally inspiring, they always are! Just I dont normally have the time.

Now its time to get some work done. :) Hope every had a great weekend.
