Pic crazy!

Sometimes I feel absolutely horrible that my kids never had professional baby pics taken. Since Liam is my last baby....(keeping fingers crossed that birth control actually works this time) I've scheduled him for some baby pics. :) Meanwhile, I've been taking all kinds of pics at home.Now, I in no way shape or form consider myself a "photographer". I have a lil' Canon p&s that I love and that works for me right now. I bought some ADORABLE hats on etsy from a super talented lady, so I decided to snap some pics of my baby wearing them. I love them on him. :)

Now, I really need to stop wasting time blogging..reading blogs...playing on facebook..etc...I have Halloween costumes to finish and a mini quilt for a swap....can I get it all done in less than a week....sure hope so. I leave you with a layout I made with the Noel October 31st kit. Its a pic of Jace and Cy from a couple years ago. :)

Jake and Elyse's Monkey Birthday Party

Life's been pretty hectic since the baby's been boring. We're all trying to adjust to having a new member of the family. It' s been good but oh so tiring. Anyway, since Jake and Elyse both have August birthdays and I could barely walk in August, I decided to do it after the baby was born. So, today we had a lil' joint birthday party for them. I got lots of cute ideas thanks to Martha Stewart. Jakey turned 1 and Ellyse turned 2, so I appliqued some onesies with monkeys for them to wear. Aren't those monkey cakes the cutest? :)

I could not find a freeakin' monkey pinata, so I found this.....and I have no idea what it is but it's the closest thing I could find that kinda resembled whatever. In this pic...Jakey and Elyse are wondering what the hell that is, lol. Too funny.

Cute and simple lil' favor bags filled with all sorts of goodies.

All in all, it was a good day...things ran smoothly and most importantly the kids had fun. :)
