*A day at the farm* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

thanks for all the positive vibes about my photo problem with Picasa... looks like they are 'coming back' on their own... slowly but surely.... and some look a little 'odd' (for a lack of a better word)...but it appears they are re-appearing... I seriously don't know what happened :( ... but at least they are not all lost...they are there... just snailing their way back onto my computer! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Yesterday, the family and I went to a local farm (Tolmachoff Farms)...were they had a pumpkin patch and a corn maze!! Soooooooooo MUCH FUN!!!! Wanted to share our day! :):):):):):):) Ohhhhhhhhh and AMY T... NOTICE the shirt I am wearing??? *LOVE IT* :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he lives there and he can! :):):):):):):):):)

 Checking out the baby chicks! :):):):):):):):):):)

And the big ones too! :):):):):):):):):):)

 Riding a pony! :):):):):):):):):):)

I'm thinking he ain't happy that Thanksgiving is coming! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Petting the goats! :):):):):):):):):):)

 Ohhhhhhhh he was just a meany Ostrich!

 Becoming one with the fruits and veggies! :):):):):):):):):):)

Brookie wanted to be one with the corn!:):):):):):):):):):)

The corn was the FIRST time anyone in the family went through one! A LOT of FUN! :):):):):):):):):):)

They had little clues throughout the corn maze that we had to collect from the mailboxes! :):):):):):):):):):)

Time to go through the pumpkin patch!  :):):):):):):):):):):)

 Adam wanted this GIANT one...and Mama (that's me!) rejected that! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):)

Then it was time for a tractor train ride!   :):):):):):):):):):):)

Then we came home and carved the pumpkins we picked out! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Mama not quite liking the pumpkin guts! LOL! :):):):):):):):):)

 Hope this ummmmmmm knife stabbing is just a 'pumpkin' thing with Adam! LOL :):):):):):):):):)

And the finished product! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And I made TWO more Christmas cards too! :):):):):):):):):):) These are done with "Happy Holly-Days" from Nikki Sivils! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Happy Halloween everyone!! Have a SAFE and HAPPY ONE! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

*We all have *THOSE* days...where the dark clouds seem to loom* :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all...

WOW! So, let me start by saying we have two computers in our household...some things I do on one computer, some things I do on the other one....and that's not a preference, just where I happen to be at the moment in the house.  Well, last night one computer started giving me issues and freezing on me, so I said, "Ok, let's switch to the other one"....and then I noticed it... I use Picasa photo editing system on both computers...and I know they say its a free service, but because of the LARGE volume of photos (I know all my scrappy's can relate to!)...I actually pay a fee to Picasa (AKA Google) to have more space with for me, no, its not free.... anywho...I go to pull up Picasa on my other computer...and really??? really????? WHAT HAPPENED??? ALL MY PHOTOS are GONE FROM IT!!!!! WHAT????? ALL GONE!!! The only ones that it retrieved for me were ones that I have downloaded from the internet (lo's from my FAVE GIRLS for the latest challenge)...etc etc etc.... I have NO IDEA where the rest of all my pics have gone... no idea....and last night, I was too tired to try and figure it out.... so hopefully, today is a new day, and I can work on it :):):):):):):):):):) Soooooooooo I am NOW working on the OTHER computer, that so far (knocking on wood!) Picasa is ok!!! Soooooooooooo, now I am gonna share some work that I completed! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

This first one was made with Nikki Sivils "Something for Everyone" line....I just loveeeeeeeeeeeeee that line...and hehehehehehehe...I think you all know why! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next, I have one made with Nikki Sivils "Happy Holly-Days!" :):):):):):):) This is Brookie last year in front of the Christmas Tree at my in-laws! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And some MORE CARDS!!! WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!! Seriously, in this past month alone.... I have made 63 cards!! I KNOW! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?!?!?! I never ever ever thought I would make cards PERIOD and now look at me go!! LOL!!

Stickerz and papers from the amazing Gudrun's company, !!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And last....but NOT least, I want to share the LATEST challenge over at These are a Few of My Favorite Things!!! This TIME we WANT to see you FAVE SPORT!!!!! And around here ... Adam...

Since he was TWO, he has been watching the races...and as you can tell from his costume, his all time FAVE DRIVER was Dale Earnhardt Sr.! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Hope you can come join us for this challenge!!!
