Hello ladies! Been trying to feel better, but once I started to we went to a trunk and treat and I got another sore throat from it being super cold. I did start my brothers Christmas gift which is a mini album using Simple Stories Awesome collection. That collection is so awesome and I want to keep the mini for myself. Lol. I plan on using left overs for a mini for DH.
I also picked up some pretty yarn over the weekend so going to knit up a couple of gifts. Knitted bangle covers. they look so beautiful in the magazine I just have to attempt.
Rachel: nothing wrong with people admiring a beautiful baby. And especially nothing wrong with them holding her during church too. Lol sweet deal if you ask me. Lailani decided she wanted to sing and talk during mass on Sunday. Would have given anything for someone to come hold her. Lol
Melissa: I love 3 ring binders! Love how I can move my pages around easier and how I can get more into them. I switched all my kids layouts from post bound and love it. Seems a lot of people are moving away from CM albums. Wonder why.

What is everyone dressing their kids up like on Halloween? Or if no kids what are you dressing up as and do you go trick or treating, pass out candy or turn your light off?

This year Glorianna is going to be a purple flower(actually lilo's costume but I made the switch) and Lilo is going to be a garden gnome. We are going to a Halloween festival at a local church and might walk the street to a few houses and after @8 going to bed.

Loni: Can you rough guess the amount per page? Then I would add $5.00-$10.00 per person for my time before and during the class. For materials for two layouts and instruction I think $15-20 is reasonable.

Or $10-15 if it is a shorter class/less embellishments.

@Elizabeth and Stephanie: I have thought about it and CM albums are such a pain in the butt! Their albums are expensive to start off with, then you have to buy pages to adhere your LO's to and then page protectors which are side load... My OCD is telling me to switch over my old ones and sell what I can - but then theres another side thats like you're crazy keep as is..

@Rachel, good luck with your promo! hope you get i!

Melissa: why don't you keep the previous albums in the CM albums and your next album start with a ring. I wouldn't go through all the hassle. Let us know what you do. And it does sound expensive.

Rachel: good luck! And take a TON of pictures of Millie's first Halloween. Remember to get a family photo. Totally forgot with both girls. hope you guys enjoy your first family Halloween.

**Happy Halloween!**

I'm spending Halloween with my cousins, and we have a busy fun-filled afternoon & night ahead! My cousin (Ashley) & I are going to her son's school Halloween party. Right after school, we are taking her kids up to her friend's house to get them all dressed up & makeup on. Dinner at Sonic for the kids(they have $.50 corn dogs all day), and trick-or-treating the rest of the night! We'll probably end with some Halloween movies & candy sorting

Tomorrow I am babysitting my cousin's baby, Sophia (the one I posted pics of) for the first time! Exciting I was actually really surprised when she asked me... she has been super protective of Sophia and not wanting other people to babysit!

Need to get going -- I hope everyone has a great Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Later tonight we are going to a Halloween Festival up the road at a church. We went last year and had fun so it will be our only thing today. I got the camera charged and ready to hopefully get some good pictures. Hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween.

We are going to have Millie's photos taken in her costume.

Then prepare for what I have heard will be hundreds of trick or treaters.

We are looking forward to trick or treating tonight. We are dressed up at work today too, so I am Amy Winehouse.

There's a photo on the blog:
Happy Hallow From Watson With Love

My daughter is at school having her Halloween Party. She is Rapunzel in combat boots; my son is Walt/Heisenburg from Breaking Bad, and my husband is dressing up like Jesse from Breaking Bad.

We have a strange, slightly alternative family. Our daughter Harper was Sloth from the Goonies for her first Halloween; we like "different" costumes

Hope everyone has a safe Halloween!

Also I'll be out of touch for a couple of days, we are going out of town this weekend to visit family (Austin and San Antonio) should be a fun ride

Gabrielle: Awesome costume! We will have strange costumes someday too. I wanted to dress up as the TARDIS, Ryan as The Doctor, and Millie as Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All...but didn’t have the energy for that this year.

Monica: Sounds like you are having a great Halloween! Was Sonic packed tonight? I went for lunch thinking it wouldn't be bad since the kids were in school - WRONG! - It was sooo packed! I managed to get the last spot! LOL I even went to lunch late! I guess all the adults wanted to get in on the good deal too.

Rachel: Congratulations on the promotion!! I have been loving all the pics of Millie on Instagram!

Gabrielle: Great costume!!

My day has been kinda emotional. Millie was fussy and I couldn't get her to nap.

I did go vote. Civic duty and all!
