Just an October Day

Yep, that's what it looks like today except that the sky is a much darker shade of blue. Gorgeous. I took this one sitting in the car waiting for Jimmy to get out of school. I shot above the cars in the parking lot so it cut off a bit of the trees. This is one thing I LOVE about living in Utah--beautiful leaves. :)

Not much going on here--survived my daughter's 12th birthday slumber party last week--six girls stayed the night. They graciously fell asleep by 12:30 p.m. I am quite happy about that. They were all very nice. We had a Masquerade Party theme and they could wear a costume or a dress. We served a 3 course meal, and Jimmy served as both Butler and Waiter. Too cute I tell you! Then we played lots and lots of games and then watched a movie. I was more exhausted than the girls. Kate proceeded to take a 6 hour nap on her actual birthday--bless her heart! I knew she would.

Working a bit. Finished up my article for the February ST issue. Ran a few errands. Trying to figure out what we're doing for Family Home Evening tonight. Maybe we should go over and visit my Mom. It's her b-day too this month, but she hasn't been feeling too well. :( And my Dad gets home from California in a few hours. I've missed them both a lot!

Nothing creative to show you. Working with a new line from Little Yellow Bicycle--so stinkin' cute!! And I think I'll be seeing some new lines from Karen Foster in the next bit. I love that!!

What are you up to these days?


  1. I've been to Utah in the Fall and I agree with you it is SO BEAUTIFUL! Can't wait to see you next projects :)

  2. So far today, I've delivered my three oldest kids to two different schools, folded a load of towels, loaded the dishwasher, given the cat a fresh bowl of water, and changed the very wet diaper of my youngest. Now I'm headed upstairs to my scrap room to create. To breathe! I love, love, love your blog! I hope that you have a wonderful happy day! Oh! My blog can be found at www.jeannesspace.caroline1996.blogspot.com. I know, crazy-long name!!

  3. happy belated birthday to your girl! my oldest just had her 12th birthday a few weeks ago ... complete with a slumber party. unfortunately, they all stayed up until almost 3:00am! nearly killed me! lol!

  4. The beautiful colours and the changing leaves are one of my favourite things about Autumn, too, Jen. We just went out on the weekend on a hike and I took lots of Fall photos. I usually miss out on getting pictures, but this year I made it my mission to get some!


  5. I've been aching to go hiking and get some fall pictures.

    Happy belated birthday Katelyn! I can't believe you're 12.

    I still miss your whole family. I'm so glad I got to rub shoulders with you while you lived here.
