I know it's getting to be autumn not only because of the change in weather, but also because of what's been going on around my house. I've been pulling out the coats and hats and gloves, doing an inventory. I found a box full of blankets (I was wondering where they all were!) and got them all washed. We went to a local grocery store and loaded up on canned foods from their case lot sale. We (ok, I) look forward to that sale all year. Since they have great prices, we stock up on all the foods that we regularly eat.
And the happiest sign that autumn is on the way--a yummy (and pretty) cup of hot chocolate to tempt me from my warm bed in the morning.

Since Sunday is the first day of autumn, and I probably won't get around to posting before then, Happy Autumn!!!

Is he the cutest thing you have ever seen? I don't know what I was thinking when I took him from the lady in the parking lot of Albertsons! As if I need another dog or another baby! I think it was those adorable old man eyebrows. So cute! I've never had a puppy before and I don't know how to handle the chewing and the barking. Any suggestions?

Preschool??? This is my little boy on his first day of preschool (today). He was so excited to go. He was ready 30 minutes early and had a hard time waiting. The school is only a few houses down from ours so it takes 2 minutes to walk there. He had a long wait. He is so cute!
Here he is brushing his teeth. He likes to watch himself in the mirror so that's where I had to take the photo (sorry for the poor quality).

He was actually cooperative with the photos today. Who is that big kid standing there ready for school?!

And here he is at the school. Wow! I can't believe he in school! Crazy! I am so proud. He went in with no problem. He put his backpack in his cubby and came over to give me a hug, then went to do his first activity. Such a big boy!

And finally, some random yumminess. FELT!!! I love it. Look at the beautiful colors. I like to touch it and hold the big pile and sometimes even use it! Ha! I think I especially love it because it's cheap! I can be obsessed and not break the bank! It's the little things that make me the happiest! :)

Some cute photos from our trip to Red Butte Gardens yesterday. So beautiful there!

Fun Swap!!

My package arrived!! It actually arrived several days ago. I am just really slow at getting things posted! So here was the package. I love mail!! Inside, eveything was wrapped so cute!
And here it is! Some yummy treats, a journal and pen (cool!), and an awesome collage with an ocean theme. So cool!! I loved it all so much. It was so fun getting a package from the UK. Tracey, you are awesome!

And here is what I sent to her. A mini book I made for her, some Bohemia transparency frames (my fav!), a book about my favorite place in Utah-Moab, and of course, a Book of Mormon. I made some cute tags explaining each gift. They turned out so cute! I am definitely going to do that some more. I have been intimidated by tags in the past, but this opened up my imagination. I have Big Picture Scrapbooking by Stacey Julian. In the back of that book, there are some tags that are to be made into a mini book. So cool. I haven't done anything with them yet but now I really want to. Tags are a very fun base to build on and play with. I'll post it when I finish!

Enough rambling for tonight! Later! J
