No Internet

I have been without the Internet/email/cable off and on since last Thursday night. OMG I have piles of email to go through, so if you have tried emailing me, I swear I am not ignoring you. I will get through my inbox and respond as quickly as I can.

Party Like a Rock Star

Lindsey decided on a Karaoke party this year and the girls came dressed like *diva rock stars*.

Lindsey in her *Diva Attire*:

I made backstage passes that Lindsey handed out as the girls arrived. They would have been laminated had my laminating machine not gone belly up on me. Anyway, I think they turned out pretty cute and Lindsey loved them and that is all that matters.

We also had sunglasses and inflatable microphones to hand out to complete their look.

Lindsey with BFF and fellow diva Lexi.

*Hey call me*
Her guitar cake: (Made by Rochelle at The Busy Bakery in Bartlett) edited: yes this is the lady that we used to have to meet in the Exxon parking lot to pick up our cakes/cookies.

The front door, complete with lights hanging from the front porch. (thanks Mom for helping with that :) )

The girls doing some karaoke:

and my friend Jessica showing them how it is done!! ROCK ON SISTER!

All in all we had a great time, even with all of the screaming no police officers showed up to shut us down. This group of girls know how to Rock the house down.

Oh and I can't forget my *diva in training*:

She wasn't sure what to think about the whole thing, she mostly hung out with grandmother. We surprised Big Sister and got a coordinating dress for Mally to wear. Too Cute.

Is this thing on..... OK good, I know I am a blogging slacker so I apologize for that up front. It seems as soon as October hits all heck breaks loose. Busy busy busy. A lot of Lindsey's friends have birthdays beginning in October as well as family members and that is on top of all the other stuff like Halloween and Thanksgiving and just everyday stuff. My Mom went home on Sunday after here two week visit. I hated to see her leave, every time she does I get a little teary. The fact that I don't have family close by just makes me sad the older I get. Thank goodness for my friends though, they are my chosen family and I love them too.

We had a fun time at Lindsey's birthday party, *Karaoke* with 15 screaming 8-9 year olds. YIKES I must be crazy. I took lots of cute pics and will get them posted later today if time permits. You do know that I am the *lady in waiting* for a certain 17 month old right? One that does not nap a whole heck of a lot and one who likes to explore every cabinet and nook she can find.

I still have some monogramming orders to finish as well as some outfits I have cut out for Mally. I also want to get my December scrap journal started and finished this weekend, I am committed to a picture a day for December and I WILL journal, even if it is just a couple of thoughts jotted down. We are staying here for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Keeping it low key as usual. Off to get Lindsey's lunch made and get started on my day.

Birthday Week

Miss Lindsey turns *nine* tomorrow.

Holy crap, 9 YEARS OLD. Double digits next year. My sweetie is growing up so fast, I know this is the same teary rant I have every year at this time so I won't bore you. :) We are busy celebrating and enjoying time with my Mom while she is here. I was looking for a photo of Lindsey when she was a year old, but just realized I didn't go digital until 2001. I need to pull out my old photos and find one of her to scan and post tomorrow. Off to check on my Tomato Bisque.

Hangin' out

Just been hangin' out with my Mom the last couple of days. We are about to get into some serious crafting. Mally is napping and Lindsey is at school. We have a mental list of stuff to create, we will see how far we get over the next two weeks. I am all giddy inside just thinking about it. :)

t- 2 days

In two days my Mother will be here for a 2 week visit. I am so excited as are the girls and David too. Yes, he loves his Mother-in-law. :) Hopefully she and I can have some crafty time. We always manage to get ourselves into something. I found some really cute Santa redwork embroidery designs (I have never tried the redwork stuff) I think I will get them stitched up today and tomorrow and may have her help me piece them together for a little Christmas quilt. We'll see how time goes. Mally and I have some play time this morning and our walk, so if all goes well she will have a nice nap today and I can work on it then. We were all in bed way early last night. Lindsey at 6:45p, Mally feel asleep in my lap about 7:15P and I was asleep by 7:45P. The day seemed to drag on forever yesterday, it always does after we set our clocks back. It was a nice relaxing day though. Off to pack Lindsey's lunch for school and I think the coffee is finished brewing (the holiday flavored coffee creamer is out, so so happy about that, I love me some gingerbread creamer) Have a great day!

Trick or Treat

We had a fun time on Halloween, we had about 50 or so of our neighbors over for chili, then we all dispersed and went trick or treating. It is really hard to stick together when you have so many children going in all different directions. We had a lot of fun though and the girls scored some good treats. Our neighbor and friend always does it up nice, after we eat at our house she runs back to hers and sets up her treats, candy for the little ones and wine for the adults. Now that's what I'm talking about :) Lindsey was an Aqua Fairy again and Mallory was the cutest little ladybug you have ever seen.

Busted! eating M&Ms.

Lindsey and friends: we had an Aqua Fairy, Graveyard Fairy, Twin Rock Stars and a Vampire

Last night David and I had a dinner party to attend so the girls had a sitter. A night out, yeah for us! Today I am getting Halloween stuff put up and getting ready for my Mom's visit this week. Really excited she is coming, I have not seen her since August, and that sucks. Also getting Lindsey's birthday invites finished up today so I can get them in the mail tomorrow.
