i finished up boston's robe last night. it was supposed to be for christmas but i forgot! oops. oh well. he loves his robe and hasn't taken it off since i gave it to him. oh ya. he's in that stage where smile = show teeth. little stinker

and this is my mom who has an obsession with scarves. in our family auction my mom bid on and won all the scarves that there were to be had! she got a crocheted scarf and a couple of fleece one's that my sister made. a WAY cool scarf that my cousin jennie made. it's the black and white one.

indyanna and i made this cool little craft tonight. we got it from meandmyinsanty's blog i can't figure out how to turn the flash off of my camera so i didn't get a very good picture of them where you can tell they are glowing from the little tea light candle inside. you'll just have to take my word on this one---they are CUTE! we plan to make many more!

because i am the ultimate procrastinator, i have tons of projects that must be completed TODAY. so you will soon see at least one post of projects soon!

for now, i wanted to share a project my daughter, indyanna, has been working on. she had to turn it in to her teacher today. it was the family project for the month of september, called "all about me inside and out". she had to decorate a manilla folder in any way she wanted that told about her favorite things. she chose four themes, one for each page. i helped with the first two pages. she did the last two pages completely by herself. NO HELP AT ALL! please blow up the pictures to get the full effect!

page one, theme: family

page two, theme: camping

page three, theme: daisy, the dog

page four, theme: scrapbooking

last weekend i went to my cousin cassie's house in round rock. we had a nice relaxing-NO KIDS-weekend. it was great! one of the things we did was go to my all time favorite burger joint, hut's. i am not a burger person but i do crave hut's. oh man! those burgers are good. gotta get 'em with grilled onions. yuuuuuum.

cassie, grandma, and aunt jawana sitting outside while waiting for a table

inside of hut's (i told ya, i love this place!)

this is a picture of indyanna with all of the scrapbooking stuff cassie sent home for her! amazing! she loved it all and immediately dug right in.

and here's my newest purse! i love it.

boston's first day of building blocks this year! (and my cousin jennie's birthday today. happy birthday jennie!)

his class is called the sea crew. so i went with that them for his outfit.

i don't know what was up with the shades. he wouldn't take them off. guess they made his new haircut look good.

boss and bray. (bray got a haircut last night too. i think it looks great)
