Pinterest Inspired Week #3

Emma, Jakob, Justin, and Tyler Winter 08, getting back at me for the pictures.

I am sorry for another delay. The last couple weeks have been kind of crazy around here. 

Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes for Tyler.I know they mean a lot to his family and friends. Unfortunately he did not make it. Tyler passed away on the 19th. You can read Tyler's obituary here. If you want to help the family with expenses you can do that here until November 5.

We had conferences last week which included early release for 3 of my 4 kids. They are all doing very well so I am please with that. Also, my Tyler finished up his football season. He did awesome with that. I am very proud of him, being able to keep up with all his school work and still be very active in sports.

My little nephew Milo had to spend a night at the children's hospital Sunday. He has had some breathing problems off and on and was wheezing badly. My sister took him to Urgent Care and they immediately took him by ambulance to the hospital. He is doing better now. He has inhalers and a nebulizer(sp)  for at home. 

Halloween was not very planned out here. Justin, my oldest, was Indian Jones with a skateboard. Tyler was Mr T. Emma, a high school graduate, not to be mistaken for one from High School Musical. Jakob was Darth Vader. Not very creative, but the kids were happy. 

Tyler needed a mask. I found my inspiration here. How cute is that?
I ended up using some of the knit fabric I bought for pajamas and I went to my fave store Joanns and bought some fur. I sewed on a mohawk and hot glued some facial hair. I don't think it turned out as well as this one, but considering it was spontaneous I am happy. 

Here is Tyler in all his glory.
Ok, maybe it is just scary. I did not get any pictures on Halloween cause I was in such a rush. This picture was taken this morning before he caught the bus and he was annoyed because his hair would be messed up.
I tried at least. Maybe next year I will do better. 

I bought a serger last week! I am super excited about it.

I have not tried it out yet. I am always nervous to use something new. It will be handy though.

I am still making up our menu every week. I am loving it because we are trying so many new things. I am making clam chowder this week with fresh clams. Yum. We are also having Pumpkin chicken chili that I found via Pinterest of course. Actually, all but one of my recipes are from Pinterest this week. If you are interested in seeing our menu just let me know and I will post it.

I am looking forward to sewing this week. I have lots of Christmas gifts to make. And my sister-in-law (Well, technically I don't have a ring so she is just kind of my sister-in-law:) just bought a new house and will be moving in this week. I am hoping to make here some things for her kitchen.

Have a great week!

However it is not so with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Spec-wise, this $220 7-inch tablet is inferior to the $200 16 GB Nexus 7 in pretty much every way, except for having
expandable memory and a rear-facing camera. When you finish with
the app, most people just hit the Home button
or the back arrow button go to the main menu.

The device is certainly worth considering,
even at the full retail price and with only a $200 discount on the contract, it might make sense to consider paying the full retail.
The rival has been bundled with replaceable Li-ion battery of 1500
m - Ah with the music playback time about 60 hours and also video playback time about 8
hours. It is priced at around $399 with a 2 year contract and $599 without one.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark II is $2,499 for body only or $3,299 with a 24'105mm lens. On the other hand when you add a vertical grip and a second battery to selected camera design the cameras all of a sudden complete speedier. The wide open aperture should allow great low light shots with creative control over the aperture.

Simply click on the program that you want to watch and go directly to the channel it's playing on. The new features from roku will start kicking in this week for owners of the Roku steaming video player models Roku 2, Roku LT, and Roku HD #2500. The stations that I get over the aerial all have their own icon in the menu.
