Fun days





This week we had some fun days. My friend Jill and I took our kids to the Greenville Zoo. I affectionately call the Greenville Zoo "Noah's Ark" because it basically has 2 of every animal. It is the perfect size for children Aubrey's age because it isn't so big. It also has a great park/playground at the front entrance. We visited the zoo last June. I was extremely pregnant and it was extremely hot. It didn't make for a fun visit. So we went back this week and had so much fun. The weather was perfect and all of us had a great time. After the zoo we went to visit Jenny, my best friend since high school, at the school where she teaches. I hadn't seen her in about a year, so it was good to see her. All in all, a really fun day.
I have also been so creatively inspired lately by the fall weather and the scrapbooking class I'm taking. Jill and I share a subscription to a monthly scrapbooking kit The Scarlet Lime It is fabulous, but this month one of the kits was for a fall/Halloween garland. We got all the papers, embellishments, etc to make it and we could personalize it to fit what we wanted. I made mine this week and had such a good time. It says Happy Halloween and I hung it in the kitchen window. Aubrey and I also made some pumpkin bread, which I love and Mallory can eat because it doesn't have milk in it! Yeah! I am looking forward to making and baking more this week. I'm trying to stay at home more because of the gas situation. In our county, the gas shortage is pretty bad. Most of the stations are completely out of gas and when they get it, the lines are around the block. I'm doing my part to help this week by being a homebody! Rats! (:

That banner looks JUST like the one I made with my crapbooking group last week! Isn't it so fun to be crafty?! I think I'll make you a bumper sticker that says, "Crafty Person On Board". JK! Love you anyways!
