Delightful Decorations Card and Lots of Family Stuff…

Hello friends!  Lots of stuff going on around here………as usual!  And I want to show some photos from the weekend, but only after the Stampin’ Up! project……..

I finally found a little window of time to stamp with my new set “Delightful Decorations” and use some new DSP “Merry Moments”.  Oh, and the new Ornament  punch, too, from the Mini Catalog (page 25).  You know that I love a quick, easy card, so this fits into that category…….and I made this in about 5 minutes (maybe even less!).

I used Very Vanilla for the base of the card and added Chocolate Chip and Red Red accents.  I chose those colors based on the DSP.  I stamped one ornament with Read Red and the other one with Old Olive, adding a Rinestone brad to the center of the olive one.  The silver cording that I used is NOT the new cording, but it is some retired cording that we used to sell.  However, we do sell Gold and Silver Elastic Cording in the Mini Catalog on page 27 that would work exactly like the cording in this photo — I just haven’t order any of it yet……oops!  And you thought I owned EVERYTHING, right?

And now to the FUN STUFF…..

Thursday evening blew in a really major COLD FRONT right in time for the football game.  Lindsey cheered in the blistering wind for about 5 1/2 hours.  She didn’t even have a voice (from a week-long cold she’d had) and it was quite comical seeing her cheer and “mouth” all the words……..but here is the CUTEST thing ever……Charles brought the baby up to the game for a few minutes and we had to bundle her up in her new winter coat, hat, and gloves.  She didn’t quite know what to think.  She ended up coming in the Concession Stand with me for awhile — it was just way too cold for her.  Then daddy took her home to her warm, snuggly bed!

Friday night’s Football game was so exciting…….we played our biggest rival, and we WON!!!  It was such an awesome way to start a fun weekend.  Here are the pictures Sarah took on her camera.

Halloween

Lindsey was at a party with friend, so she’s not in any of the photos 😦

Allyson and Zack came to Grammy’s house with us for dinner and then went to the Harvest Hoedown at church.  They won me a cake on their very first try!  Love it!

Charles and I took Sarah and the baby “trick or treating” in Grammy and PawPaw’s neighborhood after dinner.  Lots of fun!  Here’s a peek…..
