A catch-up post, and vacation pictures!

I haven't stamped, scrapped, crocheted.... nothing creative at all since October 4th. How sad is that??? It's just been a whirlwind here.

We were on vacation from October 5-10 in Ocean City, Maryland. We go every year around this time, and I just love it! There are no crowds, many things are still open, and it was warm enough to wade in the ocean! Kacy missed her house, her friends... basically everything! But she loved the sand and the indoor pool, so all was good.

The hotel we stay at has an atrium which is home to several parrots and other exotic birds. They are so friendly and so cute!

The week after we came home was just non-stop! Three Tastefully Simple parties, a team meeting, gymnastics class, and a myriad of other things just kept me going and going with hardly a minute to spare!

I did get to watch the Penn State game on Saturday. Kris was at the game, and I spent most of the first half yelling at the TV. Luckily, a completely different team showed up after halftime, and Penn State beat Michigan!!! YAY!!!

Life kind of calms down of the rest of the month, and for that, I am grateful. I still have three parties this week, and that is a good thing! But my schedule isn't as crazy as it's been since the beginning of the month, and I can focus on being creative again!

Here are a few pictures from our vacation!

Kacy standing with the seashells she collected!

My dad, Kacy's great-great-aunt Kay, Kacy, and me after Kacy fell in the water! We thought she'd have a meltdown, but she loved it!

Kacy and Kris

My favorite bird, Curly!

Dillon the parrot, strutting around! He followed one woman around for over half an hour, and when her boyfriend got too close, Dillon went for his ankles! Too funny!

The view of the atrium from right outside our room. Isn't it pretty?

Beautiful pictures!! Looks like a great vacation- I'm so glad you had fun! As for being busy... I can totally relate! But... like a very wise woman recently told me- "breathe!" It'll all be okay- and you can do anything for fifteen minutes! (thanks for that advice, btw!!) HUGS to you!

That looks like it was a great vacation. I didn't realize that you went with your whole family! Fun, fun, fun!

Hopefully this week you can get some scrapping in. I am looking for that polka dot or circle layout this week!
