Go Tigers!

Well, Jesse was asked to be a ball boy at this weekend's Lady Tiger we came and the kids had a blast! Claire wanted to take a picture with the "Big Cheerleaders" and the of course obliged. These are some of the girls from the JV Squad that cheers at all the Lady Tiger games.
Hard to see, but Jesse was ready to work and did a great job.

Tiger Game Day

Well, Lance and Jesse were picked at the last Tiger Home Game to paticipate in a halftime game against another father-son duo. Lance was hesitant, but agreed when he found out the prize was a $200 gift certificate to Ashley Furniture.....well, just goes to show how fast Lance can scoot when there's a chance he can get something for free.....As for the loud obnoxious cheerleader voice....I have no idea who that was???......

Well, I'm still on my sewing rampage. This one is kind of hard to see but is a pink and brown check and my friend Kirsten made the bow out of extra ribbon from the shirt.
I love this one.....of course my husband comes home and says, "Hey, it's a Charlie Brown dress!". Oh well, I love it just the same!
Lots going on this week! Promises to post again soon....Gretchen

What a beautiful weekend!!!

Well, we took advantage of the perfect weekend weather and dragged Lance to the zoo with us. Jesse doesn't get to go nearly as much these days since he's in school all day. The new Teton Trek exhibit is fabulous!

Fall Sewing......

Well, I had a bit of the sewing bug again, so here are a few of the items I've sewn for Claire lately. Hard to believe it's almost time for Holiday Parties and events!! Bring it on!
This I just made with extra fabric from another project and extra ribbon.

A mutual friend of mine does these as a business, so I ordered one and applied it to this tshirt. She did a great job I think! I made the cord pants to match.

This one I love the color of and a friend of mine made the hairbow with the extra ribbon. Thanks Kirsten!

So sweet and simple for the holidays! Enjoy! Promises to post soon!

Happy Halloween!!

Well, Iceman and Spot the Dalmation had a lovely Halloween. Lots of great times and treat were to be had. The kids did great trick or treating and used their manners so nicely!
Jesse's pumpkin that he and Lance designed and carved!

The pumpkin Claire picked out and Lance carved (claire mainly just observed).....

Our neighborhood has a yearly Halloween Parade, so the kids can show off their costumes to the neighbors. They do a lap around the block and have a blast! Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!!
