Step in time!

This year for Halloween we were Mary Poppins and Bert!

For the costumes I took lots of trips to the DI (thrift store) and picked up what I could find. I got my skirt, bag, and jacket there and got Nick's blue and black shirts and his suspenders there.
We got our hats at Walmart.
Then we got the rest of our supplies at Dollar Tree. I got some daisies there to sew onto my hat and we used a broom stick and some floral supplies to make Nick's chimney sweep.
Mary Poppins looks a little short ... next time I will wear heels :)
But other than that I like how they turned out!

Happy Halloween!

This weekend ...

This weekend Nick and I stopped by Winchester Farms to eat after I picked him up from school. Too bad the restaurant was closed! We enjoyed ice cream from the market instead. I love the country feel of that place.

Saturday morning I rode 13 miles to the beach ... on a bicycle! Mom convinced me to join her cycling group on this trip and it was a lot of fun!

That's me as my thighs and bum were screaming at me to stop.

That's mom! Twice my age and she can ride circles around me! She would ride and stop to wait for me along the way. The 26 mile round trip didn't phase her at all. GO MOM! 

This is a picture they took of the whole group.

It was a beautiful day at the beach and there were a lot of surfers out.

When I came back from the beach Nick and I went to BJ's for a dinner date and then to visit my cousin Ashley and Baby Jasmine! It was the first time we got to see Jasmine awake. She's such a cutie! 

Sunday we relaxed, had Mike and Taylor over for dinner and played some games and watched a movie.

It was a GREAT weekend :)

Gordon B. Hinckley

<picture from google>

I miss this man!
I love running into printables [on pinterest or blogs] with his wise words on them!
They just warm my heart.

So, I made my own. This is one of my favorite quotes:

Let me know if you would like it in a different color and I would gladly e-mail it to you :)

And now, it is time for YOU to have your heart warmed! These are some great printables I have found in the great blogosphere. Enjoy.

Amy from Our Daily Obsessions  provides this printable in a couple different colors!

 Bobbi-Jo from It Works For Bobbi! gave us this printable in different colors as well! What a sweet quote that pays tribute to all you wonderful moms out there!

Thanks Dandee for this one from Fall Dandee.

And last but not least I love these simple words:

Shelby Mae from Day To Day With Shelby Mae made this so cute! I love the color! She has a poster print of this for sale in any color.

What is your favorite Gordon B. Hinckley quote?

"God smiles on my little brother. Inside and out he's better than I am"

My BABY brother turned 17 yesterday! Seventeen! I can't believe he will graduate next year! And that he's getting his license next week!

Where does the time go?

I love you Drew!
