Fall starts next week already.  I don’t know about you, but I think fall is probably the busiest season for me.  Every September I feel like I get slightly overwhelmed with the craziness of my calendar.  Actually just a couple minutes ago I glanced over and saw my calendar open to October.  It already looks crazy busy, and basketball practices haven’t even been written in yet . . .

Anyway, along with the schedule of fall comes the fun of creating for the holidays!  I do love that part!  Have you signed up for our Christmas Card class at the library tomorrow?  I encourage you to start those Christmas cards early before all the holiday activities begin!

Now, back to fall, I have a lovely fall/Thanksgiving card to share with you today.Continue reading

On our New York trip in May, my boys learned to play Settlers of Catan which is a pretty popular game.  I have yet to try it, but they enjoyed playing with relatives.  It seemed like a good time to snap some pictures.Continue reading
