Tana on the (old) Town

Project Runway

My girls love to watch project runway. I am pretty sure Bravo got the idea from our home videos of the girls making up outfits out of the dress up clothes.

I had borrowed this dress form from a friend for a boutique and Taryn made this masterpiece out of dressup fabric. Its not to bad. She was quite proud as was I. (love the socks.)

Happy Birthday Jancy

Yesterday was my baby's birthday. I cant believe she is 15. I remember thinking I am probaly going to have a boy. I wont be that lucky to get 2 girls in row. Turns out I am. (4 in a row)

Jancy was the cutest baby. Super smart, she was so smart she would bring me the baby food jar out of the diaper bag and say "Eat Dinner" She even walked earlier at 8 months.
One time I was singing her to sleep and she said "no song" I couldnt tell if she didnt want to go to sleep or if my voice is that bad.

Here are some of my favorite pictures of her.

I love you Jancy. Happy Bday yesterday.

Trunk or Treat:HSM3

In honor of Hsm 3 we all dressed up like one of the characters.. If you cant tell I am Gabreilla and Wayne was Troy. You know your old when one of the trunk or treaters wanted to know if Wayne was Troys dad. To funny. Jess was a wildcat fan. Jancy was sharpey at the club and Taryn a ehs cheerleader and Tana was a Glammed up Sharpey. Too fun. Does this mean I still have to do Halloween.?

pumkin carving extravaganza!!

I used to go all out for Holidays. I would decorate boutique style. I think I did to much too soon. But I still have maintained the carving pumpkins traditions.

I feel a little guilty, I dont think Taryn has ever been to a pumpkin patch. Some of my best photos are of my girls at the Pumpkin Patch in Young. Yes I drove 2.5 hours for a photo opp with 3 young girls under 6. Another time Chan I drove to Wilcox from here. Needless to say I like the idea of picking my pumpkin from the actual farm even though they ship most of them in .

So Saturday night I asked Taryn if she wanted to pick out her own pumpkin at Frys. She said Nah she would rather stay in the car with Wayne. She doesnt know what she is missing.

However it turns out Taryn is not the only one deprived of Halloween festivities. When I invited one of our dear friend over for the festivities she replied with " I dont think I have ever carved a pumpkin"

On the other side of the spectrum is our other dear friend who turns out to be a plethora of knowlegde when it comes to Pumpkin carving. Did you know that if you grease the inside with vaseline it stays longer(doesnt mold to a mess on your porch) I for one like o wait for that then kick them in to the flower bed as mulch. you know dust to dust. If your interested he is writing a pumpkin carving pamplet for next year. So here are the masterpieces and yes that is Snow White, Little Mermaid and the disney castle as well as a Clone warrior.

As with any party at my house it turned into a singing and dance party. Oh ya
