Carving the Pumpkin

I am finally getting around to posting these pictures of  Don & Daemyan carving their pumpkin! They were actually taken last week. Or was it the week before......???

Last week was extremely busy, and I'm happy to say that this week is a *little* less hectic.......except for yesterday, when D had early dismissal and I forgot, and... well..., a long story. (Everything turned out fine!)

NOTE TO SELF: Wait until closer to Halloween to carve pumpkin. The poor guy is already molding :(    I will spare you from having to look at those pictures!

Avoiding the Paparazzi!

Daemyan got his hair cut last week because Picture Day at school is this Thursday. He wasn't happy.

During the school year,  he has to keep his hair short, but in the summer, he can do what he wants with it, which is grow it as long as it will get in 3 months, depending on when his last haircut of the school year was. It's nice to know that even if he is not happy about having to get his hair cut, I can always refer him to the school handbook regarding the rules on hair. Yeah, I love that!

Denise (my hairdresser) convinced him to let me take one picture, and he reluctantly put his hand down and I QUICKLY snapped this picture before he changed his mind.

I haven't been fast enough on my feet (or behind the lens!) to get an "after" shot yet!

This was a "long hair" picture taken last year. He is so handsome, I just hate for him to hide his gorgeous face, but that's just Grandma talking, yak, yak, yak...

Whatever happened to this sweet, cooperative little angel sitting nicely and posing for a picture before going into Kindergarten?

Maybe having his mom cut his hair made the difference?

It's That Time of Year Again!

I love the fall!

However, I don't like the fact that it means it's almost winter :(
Out here in the great Pacific Northwest, we get a lot of RAIN. Yes, we live in a breathtaking area, but you must be tough to weather the rainy season that we so ***lovingly*** try to tolerate
This means fall and Halloween cards for me.

I love to make Fall/Thanksgiving cards, but spooky stuff  just doesn't do anything for me. As spooky as it gets is spiders and maybe a few ghosts here and there, but really, I'm more of a scarecrow and pumpkin person, AND, as much arachnophobia as I have, using spiders on cards doesn't bother me at all as long as they don't look real!

Like these little guys, not scary, but very cute! Right?

But this is more cindi, scarecrows and pumpkins, and yes, squirrels since we have what seems to be a squirrel habitat here at the Hansen homestead.

Hope you are enjoying the fall, no matter where you live!

Miles on TV!!!

My friend, Miles was on King 5 TV today, showing how to put together a beautiful fall arrangement, as well as answer questions from the hostess of the show.

He did such a great job, he's a natural!

Unfortunately, I was not able to make it down to be in the audience...long story, it has to do with Mimosas, shrimp, hot tub and laundry. Like I said, long story, but I was able to view it at 11:00 and it was so exciting to see him on the big, well, small screen!
