Diana, You have your little princess back. I love SC's new costume. That was a cute photo of Big boy E too. We used to have mental hospital a few towns north of here...when I was a kid I would hear people talk about, it seemed scary. Poor Hero. :):) Hope you have a great weekend. You can practice winking with your stitches removed. xoxo,Susie

Great post, Diana!! The corn banner is so cute. The kids are even cuter.
I hope there's a big space under the door so you can slide food under it for your hero once he's in there. I have a feeling he'll be in there for a while.

Nellie said...

Sending wishes for stitch removal! Sweet Cheeks is darling! Poor Hero! Sounds as though he is in big trouble.:-) xo Nellie

Loving all your fall decor. You are never too old to be a princess (or at least that is what my girls say ;-) Hope you the door has at least an inch of clearance so you can at least slip him some food. LOL

Patty Patterson said...

Stitches? It sounds like I have missed something. I'm glad to hear you are recovering, though. And your decorations are beautiful. And how do you get your blog to post on your facebook. Do you do it daily? Or is there an automatic method?

You drive him up a wall. -gigggles-

My bet? A little of both!

Great post my friend . Love it all. May you have great reports back from your stitches out. Then we will all have to look out what your going to surprise us with on next blog.

I am stuck in Mind thinking if it is possible with me as what to put in for my daughters 50th album. I am starting early,early until always leaving it to the last.

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Love your little photo bomber! I bet you're so glad to still see SweetCheeks dressing up as Snow White. She sure makes a beautiful one! Love your fall decor and that insane asylum sign is hilarious!!! He better watch out! ;) Hope you're continuing to feel better. I know having the stitches out will be a relief.

Red Rose Alley said...

Hahaha, SweetCheeks had to dress up one more time as Snow White. Just when we think they are growing up, they do something like this, right? My kids still do silly things now and then at 30! She looks so sweet here, she will be the cutest girl at Halloween. Oh my gosh, tell your daughter that is the cutest picture ever of her and the boys! I think that one needs to be framed.

Have a fun weekend, Diana. So glad to hear the good news about your eyes.

So glad you have recovered and getting those stitches out today. Fun post today. I like your sign for husband....I need one of those for mine. hahahaha have a great weekend and continue to recover a little bit longer, enjoy it whilst you can. :)

Amy said...

Hahaha! You make me laugh, Diana!

I love to see all the pictures of your family and all the things you are doing. That photo bomb picture is great! Aren't kids so funny! They love those little moments of silliness.... I think Snow White is still pretty even older! It's good that they stay as young as they can. I love the Fall decor you have. It just makes any room cozy! Oh my and that sign for your hubby is priceless... I hope it's comfy in his office. ;-)

I'm glad you are doing better and yay for no more stitches!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

LOL Just love the random glimpses of your life! They range from lovely to loony! The kids, of course, are the best! Sweet Cheeks is a charming Snow White! Love the boys too, and their pretty mom! Poor grandpa, though! Lots of time to sit in solitude in the "loony bin" and think about his "crimes!" I could use one of those signs over here too!
