Misc. and A Question For You.

Hubby got me a new phone. I had been making due with a rather annoying one and hubby surprised me with a Blackberry Pearl. I am just getting used to it but I can tell already it's a dangerous thing for me. Access to email and Internet where ever I go? How will I ever pull myself away?? (Just kidding. I like living an actual LIFE!)

The first phone I was given was defective. My sister-in-law and I spent a good hour plus on the phone with tech support. During that time she taught me to knit!!! (We were on hold A LOT) I am so excited. I have always wanted to learn and I just needed someone to show me for I could never understand the patterns. Now she's letting me finish a baby blanket she began and keep it for Jonas. Isn't she sweet. I feel like new doors have opened to me! I can't wait to learn new (what would they be called??) stitches (?) and make new projects.

The phone service provider gave me a phone to replace the deffective one and it's up and running smoothly. My friend Brooke showed me the ropes while we were over at her place last night celebrating her hubby's completion of his MBA. We had a great time, as always, with our friends.

Today my arms are better. The left arm is still a wee bit sore but nothing unbearable. It continues to be a bit swollen. Dustin and I continued to grow more achy into the evening and both of us had a small fever. This morning I woke up feeling just fine and Dustin tells me he feels fine as well. All in all, the immunizations weren't so terrible.

We are having lovely weather here in Phoenix. It's cooler today. In the 80's. I can't tell you how thankful I am for the respite from the heat. Fall can't come any sooner for me.

Finally, I am looking for fun fall arts and crafts activities for the children. It seems my creativity has run dry. Anyone have any suggestions?? If so please share them here or post about them on your blog and leave a comment directing me to it. THANKS so much!

this isn't really considered arts and crafts, but it is one of my favorite fall activities. Every fall we make sugar cookies in the shape of leaves and send them to distant relatives. The kids LOVE decorating the cookies in red, orange and yellow food coloring.

I'm not overly crafty, but I have this amazing book called "Everyday a Holiday" that I ADORE!!! Almost every day of the year (sometimes more than one) is an actual national holiday and each page has a little background, some easy (or, sometimes, more complex) craft ideas to go with the theme, AND a food idea to go. I love it--esp. on rainy days and in the colder months (not a problem in Arizona, I know!) Sorry about your have GOT to be getting so excited. I'm SO gearing up that this is the week...I'm hoping I won't be disappointed :) Love, Danielle

I have a couple of family fun Halloween and Thanksgiving crafts. I'll see if I can dig them up and make you some copies! I need to get them out to do with my kiddos and the Nunez boys anyway :o)

My Mom just got the same phone!

Last year I copied Owlhaven's cute thankful tree. I put a biggish branch into a jar of stones then I drew some leaf shapes on fall colored paper. When the thankful feeling hit, we'd write down something we were thankful for and I wrote the year on the back. Then taped the leaves onto the branches. I'm pretty excited to add to it this year and re-read the leaves from last year. It was an easy, worthwhile craft (something that is usually pretty hard to find). Also great because we talked about what tree each leaf would go to...always looking for a good learning tool :)
have fun!
