Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to all! We had a blast handing out candy to all of the neighborhood kidlets. I just had to show off the pumpkin my Mom carved for my husband. She has started a tradition of carving him an awesome pumpkin every year. All of our trick-or-treaters loved it. Way to go CraftyMom!

Checking in

Just stopping by to say hi. Life has been crazy lately, and I totally forgot that I have a blog! Phillip and I have been so busy having adventures in the past few months. We traveled to Kentucky to visit his family. While there I was incredibly sick. I was using my inhaler pretty much every 3 hour which was scary. We hiked up the pinnacle and to natural bridge in the Red River gorge.

We went to the Knoxville Lindy Exchange and had a blast dancing and visiting with all of our friends. When Phillip and I got home, we also found out something interesting.
We are excepting our new addition to arrive around May 31st to June 5th 2010. So you know what this crafting! Phillip and I are going for a more gender-neutral theme with Speck. I love greens, browns and yellow, and we will see in December if I can get some more specific crafting done. We will be able to find out the gender then, so I can really crank up production. As of right now we are planning to cloth diaper, set up the guest room as the nursery, and re-use as much as we can. We'll see! I am pretty excited to sew up some cute accessories. Since we are planning to go pretty minimalist with baby gear, I really want to make stuff we can use. If you have any good ideas or essential items, let me know.
