I think October is probably one of the busiest months of the year for us. Not only do we have 3 birthdays but we also have to cram in the last of the season canning, garden clean-up, and all of the fall festivities we can manage. I love October. I love single thing about it. Gabe is at such a fun age right now because he looks forward to our traditions as much as I do.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the month so far. The first is a picture of my brother waiting to give Karisa flowers for homecoming. She was voted Homecoming princess for her Freshman class.
Look at this amazing picture. Henry was feeding Ruby ice cream at Gabe's birthday party. Aww, twin love.
This picture of Gabe was taken at Drapers in the apple orchard with my cell phone camera. Can you believe I forgot my memory card in my big camera? Man, I can be such a blonde sometimes. Thank goodness they turned out pretty well.
Yesterday we went to the Pumpkin Patch in Terrebonne. The theme of the corn maize was Star Wars this year which is right up Gabe's alley. His cousin Karl got him hooked on Star Wars and the maize was awesome. You go through the space ship to get to the maize entrance.
Umm, Dave may be a good navigator in the woods but he doesn't follow maps well. Ha-ha.
Dave was pretty happy that Gabe made it to the top of the climbing wall to pose with the Oregon Ducks flag. Poor little Gabe is a Beavers fan and wasn't too happy that he had to climb the Ducks side of the wall!

As part of our trip "down shore" (as my Philly friend called it), we also hiked through Jedediah Smith National Park to see the redwoods. Wow, those trees sure know how to make a person feel small and insignificant. Here are some of my favorite photos from our hike:

Now that Heidi has shared my projects on the GCD Studios blog, I feel comfortable posting them here as well. This first project is a frame that I created using a simple wooden frame from Michaels. I painted the entire frame with chalkboard paint and then layered the patterned paper and embellishments over the top. I love how it turned out and eventally plan to let Gabe write on it with chalk. I just couldn't do it before I took the picture though...ha-ha.
Here is a close-up of the embellishments I used. I covered plain chipboard elements with the GCD Studios paper from the kit and added some twine and a banner title, fun huh?!
Another fun card...
and two layouts...

Back in August I went on an amazing weekend trip to The Scrapbook Manor with a group of my friends from CTS. As you can see, we actually got some scrapping done!
