Happy Halo Halloween!

Ok so Brett is home, and one day when he called to say "hey" to the kids Jimmy was crying over a bad day at school. Brett asked him if he needed to play Halo for medicinal purposes. Jimmy turned to me and asked "What is medicinal purposes, Mom?" Once I explained it, Jimmy was ecstatic. He LOVES playing video games with Brett. So right now Jimmy is cleaning up his room in preparation for some Halo time with his daddy. We're so glad to have Brett home. I keep hugging and kissing on him because he's really here!!

Wanted to share a few things before we have our family time.

I did this layout about Joey for a 2Peas Weekly Challenge. It was to use a lot of photos. I grabbed a lot of photos of Joey, dumped them in Photoshop, changed them to black and white, and printed them out as one big photo. Take a million photos of your kids, there is NEVER such a thing as too many photos. I promise. :)




(Katelyn pointed out that in nearly every photo he was smiling--and yes he was usually smiling--sweet boy!)

This next layout is sort of about Joey too. I wanted to use the Faith Album Elements from Little Yellow Bicycle to document some of my feelings and beliefs on seeing my son again. (NOTE: the die cut flowers are from Quickutz and the title was also cut with my Quickutz machine--love it!!)



These cards are using some of the Album Elements Tablets from LYB plus some new Clear Cut shapes. Darling!!

Well, I need to clean the house, do some grocery shopping, and maybe work while the kids and Dad play Halo (I'm so NOT good at video games, although, Jimmy did invite me to play. LOL!).

Have a wonderful and safe Halloween!!

  1. You are so talented. I am with you on the video games. My kids invite me to play just i am so bad it is funny and they can have a good laugh together. But i like to watch them play and still consider it good "family" time.

  3. Have to say, Jen, I love the layout of Joey, love the idea of 600 pics in one big one :-) but the one about You and Joey had to be my all time favourite layout ever that you have done. It's so simple, so deep, so honest. Beautiful pic of you.
