Alma 32:41

...Nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

Pumpkin Patch

I love the fall!!! Fall and Spring are probably my favorite seasons- for the temperate climate and all the wonderful colors! Shawnery Mathis made this awesome kit Autumn Memories to go with this time of year. This is our son's second fall and the first one where he can start to appreciate the fun stuff that goes on. We took Kaden to this awesome farm near us. They have a Harvest Festival going on right now so with your admission fee you got to ride in a tractor drawn wagon, lose our way in a corn maze(which has significance for my husband and I as we met going to a corn maze with friends we had in common), watch an animal show and pig races, look at various farm animals (including goats that walk on planks above your head and baby pigs), and of course pick from hundreds of pumpkins. They also had some wonderful vendors selling yummy food. It was a ton of fun. Of course I snapped tons of photos and have been itching to scrap them. So here is the page I came up with. Let me know what you think and go check out Shawnery's Autumn Times kit at

More Fun Times

heehee. I love the photo of Kaden putting the hose on Liam. It's a good thing Liam liked it otherwise he would have taken Kaden down! This was our first night in Utah. It was so refreshing for Kaden after the long car ride. And good for him to get a little more dirt off before going in the bath. Liam is much more adventurous in the pool than Kaden. He dives in and does belly flops. I hadn't realized how cautious my boy is before. Though he wasn't as cautious when he was younger. Liam was a good example for Kaden. He's four months older and wiser. :)

Appropriately I mainly used Shawnery Mathis' Fun Times kit- available at
I also used he Beauty in Nature kit for the cardboard elements and her Back to school kit for the ricrac and paint splashes and circles. All available at Digiscrapdesigner.

The title is created with A Cox's Dymo alpha. And the journaling is in SBC Love Mom. And that's everything...

Here's my newest LO. On the drive to Utah we let Kaden out of the car to run around at a rest stop. They had just had a fire- one of the largest in history I believe. The dirt was covered in ash and some of the picnic tables were charred. Kaden ignored the picnic tables but he loved the dirt obviously. I had to clean him up in the sink which was no easy feat. :) All the people who saw him thoroughly enjoyed his joy at getting messy. Everyone talked about how great it was to be a kid. They told him not to grow up and told me to always let him play in the dirt. I used Shawnery Mathis' Fun Times kit available at . It's a perfect boy kit and yet the primary colors would be great for a girl page too. Basically it is versatile. I also used a postcard and road sign from C. Shields Road Trip kit and the Alpha is a Paper Towel Alpha by Dirty Feet Designs. The Alpha is SBC Love Mom. Below you can see Shawnery's preview for the Fun Times Kit.

New LO

I used Karla's Back to School kit and Graph Doodles for the bulk of the page. Her store link is in my sidebar. The music doodles are by Kate hadfield and the Sing Alpha is Retrodiva.

Just getting back in the groove of scrapping. I have tons of photos from our trip to Utah that I want to scrap but I haven't been feeling creative lately. There are some really fun photos of Kaden covered in Dirt at a rest stop and of him playing in the pool with one of his friends. Also I need to scrap the photos of him with his Great- Grandma. I also need to scrap our exciting news!

I am 11 weeks prego! We are very excited. I am due on April 18th.

Oh and karla is having another sale and a chat so check out her blog(in my sidebar) for more ingo.
