Trick or Treat!

We've been keeping busy every weekend and so far we've enjoyed going to Sea W*rld the best. They have trick or treating for the kids on weekends and Kylie sure got the hang of it from day one. At first she was very cautious and barely audible and now...she still is! Ha, nothing has changed except for the fact that she is not shy anymore about running up with her bag wide open for treats. She will not say a word unless we remind her to say thank you. The more we go, the more open she is about letting us take her pic with sea creatures and mermaids. The first day we went, she did not crack a smile for photos and now she happily gives us a cheese smile.

Kylie was sick this past week. Her Dad and I missed work due to a fever that lasted four days! We found out on the 3rd day that she had a double ear infection and bronchitis! Poor bean! She is doing much better now thank goodness.

The past few months, I've been staying up late at night surfing the net for items related to my new scrapbooking! I've collected freebie stuff for the past year and just recently decided to give it a whirl! I've had help from my patient hubby! Yes, I said patient hubby:-) He has been very patient teaching me how to use Photoshop and answering the same questions that I've asked again and again. I finally decided to take notes. I admit I was a bad student but I'm loving the results now so I'm getting serious about learning. I've also purchased a software called Fo*to Fusion which I primarily like to make collages with. I decided to share what I've been working on for your viewing pleasure:-)

We made an unplanned trip to the pumkin market and Kylie loooooved it! We had to keep up with her as she ran around like a crazy girl yelling "punkeen, punkeen".

I don't remember where I got this template from. This was my first try at digi scrappin and my hubby helped....alot:-)

This layout is a work in progress. This was our second weekend in Sea W*rld. We met up with new friends Matt, Moly & Malone along with other wonderful families who have adopted from Vietnam. I wanted to share the photos of Kylie in full costume for the first time. She was our little angel:-)

Finally our sweet Belle! This was taken yesterday. We met up with our wonderful friends the Zanegoods guessed it Sea W*rld.
This pic is for my friend Jeanne who I informed that we needed to go because it was now Kylie's nap time. This was 2-3 min into our car ride.

LOVE Seaworld!! I really like the digital scrapbook stuff. Looks great. I wish I could get the gusto to do some more with the regular scrapbook I have. Its been left at "referral"... I have alot to work on.

Jim and I came to Universal a few years ago for Halloween. It was the coolest thing ever. SO much fun.

Kylie is sooo cute in that Belle outfit. :)

I love seaworld. We went for MY birthday last April. Can't wait to take our little one there.
You're doing a great job on the scrappy pages. I've been trying the digital thing, but I can't seem to get the hang of it. Maybe you can give me some tips.

Dear Judy,

You are doing an amazing job on the digi scrapbooking. Your hard work is paying off! Your choice of photos and colors show your amazing creativity! Kylie is growing up so fast and we can see each special moment as they come. It really is the greatest treasure we can give our children. These memories captured and presented in a dramatic way. A legacy....a labor of love.

Love you,

Jeanne and Ellie
