This is a close up of the picture that is on top of the fridge - my Nona and Grandpa making spaghetti in their kitchen many years ago - my mom and brother are watching in the background. One of favorite pictures.This is a ceramic pumpkin that a dear friend of mine gave me, it's actually to be used as a punch bowl, but she couldn't find the pumpkin mugs that went with it, so I put it on my dining room table.This is a table in my entry way with some pumpkins I picked up at Target. I have collected quite a bit of fall stuff ove the years so this is only a small peek!On the front porch I have some fake mums (I'm not good with flower arrangements as you can see!) with a little nod to the Razorbacks. My twin boys put this scarecrow together and decorated the remainder of the porch - I think they did a great job!

We went with the colors of her room which are zebra print with hot pink - so fun for a girl with all boys!! This is a banner I made with her name.
See the lamp I found at Hobby Lobby - $7.00 - oh yeah! I couldn't find pink gumballs around here so I ordered some off of ebay!!
My friend and fellow hostess made this adorable bouquet full of onesies, booties, and goodies that she turned into roses - so clever!We asked everyone to take a note card and write a few words to Berkley that could go in her scrapbook.We kept the food to the good stuff - sugar! Cake, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate covered pretzels and two types of punches - Yummy!The guest of honor with her mama, grandma, and sister!
The Hostesses - so fun!
My BFF's!Look at all of the girl stuff!

Thursday night was the finale of "camp idol" so much fun!
Wednesday we took the kids on a hike and they had bible study down at the creek - it was a pleasantly cool day - perfect for the hike!
This is Candy and I with our staffers - these are kids from the church that are in high school and we work them HARD all week - they set up/tear down/clean up/and anything else they are asked to do, and they all did it with such a sweet spirit - their parents would have been so proud!!
I got so close to them during the week that after we got home from camp I made them each a little scrapbook with some pictures of the week. The staffers also performed DAILY skits that were SO funny - they kids loved them and so did all the adults. Here are a few pictures of the scrapbooks I made them. There were 8 of them so I was busy!!
I made them out of chipboard and used paper and embellishments I all ready had - yes I have a LOT of stash!
I put their initial on the front of each book.
They were a lot of work, but I enjoyed doing them and I think they really liked them~
It's fun, but whoa! Lots of laundry, driving around and there needs to be a 24 hour rotation of food going on for these hungry boys! Later!
