The Reports Are In!

Congrats to my fellas for their awesome report cards. I'm very proud of all their hard work. I was really concerned that with Caleb and Dylan having to run to football practice everyday that their grades would suffer (Cody chose to stay home, so he didn't have the mad rush to deal with!). But, the report cards were awesome.
Cody - A/B Honor roll
Dylan - A/B Honor roll
Caleb - Straight A's!
Yes, I'm a happy mom and I do brag on MY blog. That's what it's for - a record of US and our accomplishments and even things that didn't quite get accomplished. If anyone finds this emotionally disturbing or offensive in any way, I would politely encourage you not to visit this space on the www. I wouldn't want to contribute to the mental detriment of anyone. Peace, ya'll!

I know I have customers who like to read 1/2 Dozen, my family blog, so I'm posting this here and on LuLu Belle. LuLu Belle will be easier to find and easier to remember. I've had several customers tell me they wanted to refer our site to friends but could never remember the web address. SO, now all you have to remember is this:
Mush easier, huh? I think being a "dot com" will be so helpful! We are growing and expanding!!

Chilly Morning...

I awoke this morning to a chill in the air. For the first time in months I wanted to turn off the ceiling fan in our bedroom. I had an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. I am grateful to experience yet another season on this Earth. My children were still sleeping, warm in their beds, the dog was not whining to be let out – it was just a great morning. After taking the boys to school I came home and slowly enjoyed a delicious cup of hot chocolate in my favorite mug, thank you Rebecca. Lacey and I enjoyed breakfast then I got to work sewing up four custom orders. I'm glad I had such a sweet, slow morning. In a few short hours it will be dinner, homework, and a football game. Different pace for sure – but just as sweet! Happy Monday everyone.

We went to the fair on Friday. It was so crowded. My favorite part, as always, was the food. JUNK, but delicious. I was "good" all week so I could get into those Fiske fries!

Can you feel fall?

I looked out of my kitchen window today and noticed that my front porch was covered in brown, crispy leaves. Fall has arrived! A lot of the oaks in my yard still look fairly green, but those brown leaves were a sure sign that the seasons are changing. Fall is a beautiful time of year. A time for mother nature to take a nap and prepare for the spring to come. I'm not a fan of winter at all – I can never get warm – but Autumn winds and cooler temps are glorious. Fall also means football – and we are still busy with games and practices. Caleb is loving it. Caleb tells me his positions are first string defense and Safety – okay, so I don't know what that means – I just love to watch him play. As for the rest of us, Cody is breezing through 7th grade, Dylan is loving riding his bike and skateboarding in the cooler temps, and LuLu, well she is still THE Diva. Travis is putting in long hours at work and I'm oficially a WAHM (Work-at-home-mom). I've been a sewing FOOL. Lots of new stuff at Daff-A-Deals. I've done so many custom orders I have lost count, and I can never remember to take photos. I'll Update LuLu Belle, so check it out. LuLu Belle

Also, I'm planning a PAMPERED CHEF party on Wednesday, October 15 @ 6:30. Of course, Michelle Bass, (chic, chef, classy, consultant) will be handling the party for me. I love alliteration. LOL
Please come and bring a buddy or two.

Happy fall ya'll!
