yikes, shark attack!

We made sure to hit up the annual Howl-o-ween parade in our city this weekend. Maui and Hilo had one swim-tastic time meeting new furry friends and getting lots of love. They swam around enjoying free treats as cute little sharks. I went as a lifeguard, and Gloria went as an attacked surfer. 🙂

"Grrrrrrrrr. We are hungry. We're surfer hunting!"

((Maui and Hilo would also like to thank their Uncle Scott for spending time with them this weekend!))

Here’s a brief glimpse of Howl-o-ween 2009:

Cute, huh?! It was so fun to look at all of the creativity people put into their costumes! 🙂 Moreover, my parents came to visit. It was fun spending time with them, and Maui and Hilo loved having them over.

Grandma and Grandpa visits = EXTRA ATTENTION

Maui and Hilo were so dog-gone tired from all of the excitement from the weekend, so they crashed on the couch.

The busy weekend didn’t allow much time for scrapping, but I did finish Sketch #51 for Pink Sketches. Need somewhere to start?! Check out the sketches every week for inspiration. Here’s my layout for the week:

…and TOOT for me! 🙂 I woke up this morning and read this. My Mind’s Eye picked one of my layouts and awarded it with an “honorable mention” for Challenge #4. I am so  honored and excited that my layout was recognized. 🙂

That’s all for now. I will definitely be back with scrappy updates.

    Oh sweet goodness! Maui is such a doll! Hilo is such a jewel!

    It has been so long since I last commented on your blog. My partner, who was stationed in the Middle East, recently came back to Florida for a few months, so I took time off working for my Church’s boys choir to be with him.

    It is so lovely to see those pups growing up. Your LOs are just wonderful. Only God above who sits on high and looks down low could give you the talent to create such beautiful and inspirtational pieces. You should give yourself a round of aplause! It’s just so lovely. And it’s so lovely to be back on your blog today.

    God Bless!
