Little peeps!

I am not sure what happened here with the picture all the way over there...but anyway..
Look what we brought down from the attic!!
I used to play with these Fisher Price toys when i was i little girl,mostly my A-Frame cottage,
and several years back i went on an all out quest to find as many of the Little people that i could!
Here's me....
in my sporty green car!
(does someone have some chapstick to spare...those lips are lookin kind of dry!!)

And here's the boys...
and a friend...
we are NOT pregnant
for those of you who may be thinking that!
(but her name would be Ruby...if she was a girl..
and we were...um..preggers..
but we are not...)
okay..i just hit a button i should not have...so you may be reading an incomplete post...
here is sweet Sammy Loving the new toys..

is anybody home??

it looks like he is getting ready to do the ring the doorbell and run maneuver..leaving new baby with baseball cap in cradle for

Mr. and Mrs. Fisher-Price!!

Ha ha! tee hee!

now he is just going to take the whole family with him...

talk about a mobile home

we got some new toothbrushes for the boys!!

costing only a small fortune...

they don't vibrate..but they do sing a song..

Sammy's is "HakunaMatata"...and Myles' is "Bare Neccessities"

The first time we brushed Sammy's teeth with it..he screamed

so hard...we were beginning to regret the choice to have a sensory input toothbrush experience... Now..He Loves it!!

We (i) tried it myself before giving it over to the boys..and it is really neat...you can't really hear the music very strong until you put it in your mouth..a little strange..but..maybe Sammy will start to say something!!

maybe....."HakunaMatata!!" ?

Here's #3 in the Great Pear Down!!

little papers..embellishments...brads..swirly metal pieces

more papers

more ribbons

and what's this!!!

A Joxlette!!!

Just leave a comment....

tell me what your favorite childhood toy was!!

Did you play with Fisher Price Little People too???

As always..

Have a Love-fully!!!

Crazy Yummy Weekend!

This is what inspired all of my other jewelry making!!
My Big Sister Jenny asked if i would make something to donate to a fundraiser..and this is what she got!!

A Pretty Yummy lanyard..to clip your identification on!!

I made one for her a couple years ago..and she has really put it to good use!! This one reminds me of her...not actually the colors she loves..but her Birthday is in November..topaz!!

I hope she likes it!! i hope someone else likes it even more!!

And on Saturday.....we went to the pumpkin patch!!
This was so much fun...and there are many pictures to show..
so get comfy cozy!!
If you know something funny about Myles it is that he and spiders are not BFF's!!
This was on the hayride...and thank goodness we were safe from this guy!!

keeping my eyes on him...

that was close!!

my baby bunny with some other bunnies!!

can anyone say...bunnies for Christmas!!

some more great pictures...

"Uhhh...i'll take the pumpkin with the blue pants on please!!"

she was just hoppin around the farm....

i just love these bright beautiful mums...

and this guy!!sweet hands..sweet face...and look at those eye lashes!!

a fun maze...lost the pumpkin with the blue pants in here a couple times!!

and just some information on children with Autism.....

We are forever longing for "eyes"

"look at mommy's eyes"..."let me see your eyes"

and this is very typical for us..and maybe you too even if you don't have children with autism..

so these next few are my efforts for some "eyes"

(this will make a great thanksgiving picture...he IS giving "lubber" a hug)

even the pig got in on the action....no eyes here..

well then...

i do however get eyes when there's trouble..

or chance..

or a miracle!!

my little pumpkins!!

and look what was waiting for me when we got home!!

my package from sweet Lori

a hand written notie...

and the yummiest packaging!!

(UGLY green!!!! this girl went all out!!)

and here she is...my very own Creme brulee bracelet that she made just for me!! I am in love!!! It chatters on my wrist whisperings of a friend i have never met..yet hope to someday!

Thank you so very much Lori!! I LOVE IT!!

and now i am off to our first teacher's conference... just updates...and maybe some talk about eyes... but..more later..

another giveaway!!

Have a love-fully day!

What a Weekend!!

Here is our Smylie...a bit grainy picture..but look at him with his blankie....hangin out with his elephant!!Sweet boy!!

We had the great opportunity to go play soccer yesterday at an indoor soccer place...with volunteers and generosity in abundance...hosting the event for children on the Autism Spectrum...we thought for sure that Sammy would take to the soccer field immediately...and he did...Smylie wasn't crazy about the whistle being blown..but he actually kicked the ball several times...he carried it more than you should in the game of soccer, i think....but he really liked the child he was paired up with..isn't that great..each child had a little mentor..kids volunteering for the benefit of other children...so heart warming!!...and when it was time to go..i asked Myles to say goodbye to Ryan...and he looked at him and gave him a hug!!

Here are some more pictures of the event!!

Can you say GOALIE!!!

and i was busy Friday night working on these yummy

"Oh my goodnesses!!"

A little Pumpkin Spice

and some Creamy Cinnamon Coffee

and this Boo-T-Full Halloweenie...(that didn't sound right!?)

What are these girls all- a- chatter about???

Another giveaway!!!

What in the world!!??

This Spooktacular garland is the giveaway for today!!

Leave a comment today or tomorrow and your name will be entered...will draw Tuesday night...and send Wednesday!!

Also...go see my new stuff in the shop...and have a Love-fully!!
