Happy Columbus Day & Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

It is October and it is COLD!!!

Happy Columbus Day! The boys are off from school and we're having a late start of the morning...well, actually the boys, not me. I was up with hubby who had work today...rude awaking from being a banker! LOL!! But an early morning wake-up was good because I had some deadlines to finish up...well, I'm taking a "break" right now to blog! Heehee!!!

Last Saturday was my turn to post a Spellbinders™ Savvy Saturday. Being the fall season, I wanted to do a layout of the boys being one with the pumpkin...just love this S4-227 Pumpkin Nestabilities® die template! Plus we are doing a blog hop spotlighting Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist! So I put the two together and we have ourselves a PRETTY PUMPKIN! LOL!

Cosley Zoo (Wheaton IL) was our neighborhood place to go for all seasons. Their school, Sandburg Elementary, had many of their field trips there because it was walking distance. Such a great place...I hope it stays open for a LONG time. Now that we have moved, we don't get the chance just to drop in anytime.

OK...break time over! Have to get some stuff done and then take my "big" guy (oldest DS) to a farewell party.

Have a great day!
