halloween time...

These pictures are from my front door, I made the signs with my silhouette!! I love this machine.

Here is a close up of the signs.

These pictures are from Liz's moms' club event last Saturday. I forgot my camera for my moms' club even which was on Friday. But Bryant looked just as cute!

My mom made the boys pirate costumes including the cute belts!!

bryant's baptism...

I am sorry that I didn't post any pictures recently, but I had been sick with a cold all weekend. Today is the first day I am finally feeling so much better, and not dragging myself to work, meetings, etc. Luckily it was just a cold, and not the swine flu...those poor people that have the swine flu.

Josh, my cousin, with Bryant.
I was holding him while Deacon Carl, poured water over his forehead. He didn't even cry, but he did give me a dirty look. My sister and my bother-in-law, Eddie, are his godparents. They bought him his super pimp daddy outfit, it even included white shoes, socks, and underwear.
My parents with the boys.

My grandparents with Bryant. You can see Bryant's outfit better in this picture. I love his cute white bow tie, vest, and tuxedo pants.

My cousin, David, and his fiancee, Karina, with Bryant.

Funny story, Eddie convinced Josh, David and Karina that they also had to wear white to the Baptism since it was part of our parishes customs. They actually went out and bought white outfits for the event. It was really sweet of them to go all out for the event.

I love Phil for buying me the silhouette for my birthday!!! I love my silhouette!! The first thing I cut out name. I welded the letters and added a flower on the end. It was so easy, I could not believe it, because I had heard so many complaints about the difficulty to use.

but then I finished my project for are going to see so many more projects with my sil...

Can I just say how much I love stampin up products and ideas from my demonstrators?!?!

Tara made these goodie bags.
Liz also bought me some inks and Tara gave me my products in this super cute bag!! Talk about doing what you preach. She also made the cutest designs for place settings using the Autumn Splendor stamp set and the Autumn Meadows designer paper.

Julie did these goodie bags. My favorite was the box, I can see so many great ideas from using this box over and over again!! And decorating the candy...

The tough decision is who gets the bags...before Phil opens them up and eats all the candy.

This weekend was about seeing old friends in San Diego...

On Saturday we went to San Diego for Lilly's baby shower... more pics at my shutterfly website. Actually I posted all the pictures on the shutterfly website.

Later that night we went out for dinner at Casa de Pico and met up with Clara and Carl. It is always great to see Clara.

Then on Sunday we drove back to San Diego to see Mike, Jen and Lucas. Mike and Phil grew up together in Walnut. Yes, I know we should have spent the night in San Diego instead of driving down there two days in a row, but I just started working so we weren't able to afford to stay down there. We had a great time with Mike and Jen and Jen's family at the Wild Animal Park. Can I just say that we have gotten our money's worth from those year passes from the San Diego Zoo!! Nice.

Excerpts from a Cat’s Daily Diary:Day 683 of my captivity:My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets.Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.
The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the floor.Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a “good little hunter” I am. The audacity!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow– but at the top of the stairs.I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released — and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded!

(I could not stop laughing...)
