so, above - Brenna before school yesterday - she was dressed up as Holiday Barbie (and no, they didn't have dress-up day at school yesterday - that is scheduled for Monday - it will be interesting to see what she choses that day!!!) Below - Brenna modeling the new Carpenter Creation (I am having a very difficult time focusing this week - so I took a break from work and finally sewed this project that has been sitting in my craft room - very happy with the short time it took from start to finish - only about 4 hours).

so over the weekend our town had a Halloween Harvest Festival that included a pet costume parade. We dressed up Justice like Air Bud and took him up town (plus with my limited time, some face paint and one of Brenna's shirts was all I had time for). He still got plenty of comments on how cute he was even though he didn't win anything in the pet costume contest (I think he was happy with all the attention he got anyway). The face paint was just the water based stuff that I have been using - I'm impressed it went on Justice's fur so easily.

Brenna before school pictures yesterday - she didn't want me to take her picture so I tried two things to get some pictures - I got out the remote and let her use it (the picture above and below - of course that one kind of didn't work out like I hoped as she wanted me in the pictures with her - and lets face it - I didn't look nearly as picture perfect as she did :-)

o.k. - I have been a pretty bad blogger lately, but life here at my house has been very crazy. My pictures aren't in order, but here is some of our life since the last blog post. Above, Brenna at a birthday party from last week for our friends' daughter from Germany - I did face painting (I only got one picture of the kids with the face painting - this one of Brenna, so if anyone has any pictures they would like to share, I would really enjoy seeing them. Below, we made an art display wall in our breakfast room - the wire curtain hangers are from IKEA (Dustin goes by there weekly unless he is traveling to elsewhere - like Germany - he is scheduled to go again on Monday - this is like the 3rd or 4th time since my last blog post - at least it seems that way...) Anyway, Brenna loves her art wall - these were for the month of September - we cleared it all off after these pictures for October and our wall is almost full already!
