Have a happy and safe Halloween out there guys! I'm hoping to have a nice quite night at home. I know, boring but, my family hasn't really done anything for Halloween since I was in 5th grade. So now as an adult, Halloween just isn't that special. Anyway, I'm currently battling allergies/sinus stuff so I wouldn't feel like partying tonight.

Pumpkin Round Robin

Here is my Square that I stitched for an Open Theme Round Robin. This Is Shannon's piece and she chose pumpkins for her theme. My pumpkin came from the 2008 Cross-Stitch Pattern-a-Day Calendar. It was designed by Elizabeth Spurlock and was the October 2 page. I made a few changes to make it work.

Here is my pumpkin with Shannon's. I love how it looks so far! I can't wait to see the finished piece at the end.

R.I.P. Daisy

Daisy, our oldest Basset Hound, died today. She was in quite a bit of pain so we finally said good-bye to her today. It's been a tough 2 years. All of our dogs were about the same age so they all started dying at the same time. We will all miss her but I'm glad her suffering has ended.

Some photos of the Wedding

Here is the Wedding Party. The Bride is Sarah, my sister and I am the one standing right next to her with no face. The lights were too bright and it looks like I'm a ghost! Haha! These aren't the professional photos so those probably turned out much better. The flower girl and ring bearer are our little cousins whom I babysit during the week day.

The Bride and Groom, Sarah and Malachi!

This is me and the Bride. I could not breathe in the dress because it had boning and it was pinned in several places. So all that made it hard to sit down in the dress. You could definitely tell in this pic that I was in discomfort. If she was uncomfortable, she hid it well! And in all the photos, you can see some of the flowers and decorations which I made all of. I was going to try to get pics of the bouquet, corsages, and boutonnieres but I ran out of time before the wedding.

Wedding Day!

Today, my sister got married! I was the Maid of Honor, florist, and decorator. I am ready to sleep for a solid week! The wedding went well as did the reception. Ok, I'm going to try to get some sleep now. :)

Little Snap Dragon Progress

For some reason, this is the only thing I have wanted to stitch on lately. It seems to be really coming along. This photo is a bit washed out.

I decided to scoop up some tadpoles out of our pond so my little cousins could watch them grow. I have to admit, I have really enjoyed taking care of them.

Here's one almost all grown up! Cute huh!
