I am a bad blogger. I need to update more.

We had pumpkin carving at our house on Sunday (and John's b-day with the family). Pumpkin carving is a yearly tradition with his family and this year the pumpkins didn't disappoint! John's family is very creative.

After some relative indicision (Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty, a "flower pot", Cinderella), Alexa has decided on a costume for Halloween. Dorothy from Wizard of Oz. Tomorrow is the party at day care. She can. not. wait. Ava is going to be Tinkerbell. We'll see if her highness will actually wear her costume.

Alexa has an amazing memory. As soon as she opened her eyes this morning she rattled off what half of the kids at day care are bringing for a treat. She was dead on for each of them.

The proposed GM-Chrysler merger scares the crap out of me. I don't know how many job consolidations John can skirt through. That one might be way to big. And how is this going to help Michigan? They are talking over 30,000 jobs being cut. At minimum. Almost makes me a little sick to my stomach.

I finished a few scrapbooking projects: some layouts and a mini-album.

You can see the rest of the mini-album here. (I'm too lazy to upload all the pics)

And one of my layouts:

It. is. cold. Really cold for October. Like 28 degrees tonight type cold. I'm not ready for this weather!

Maria, love your projects! That layout is really cool!

Sorry to hear about your husband's job worries. I hope everything turns out ok.
