Hello all! Sorry I have been MIA lately. I have been so busy working on JCarilli Designs that I have been slacking on photo editing, and blogging. I just wanted to drop a quick note to say that I have an update to come. I have photos to share of the kids and videos and so many changes to share that Ryen is going through. Speaking of Ryen, my baby is going to be ONE in less than 2 weeks. Eeek!!

My sister Lori and I have for the last month been getting together once a week for play time and dinner. We go to her house every Thursday and we CHERISH this time with her and Livvie. Even though Ryen gets into EVERYTHING... the dogs bowl/water and even though Lori's house is not baby proof (AT ALL) we manage to have a good time! Here are some photos of the three kiddos!

But we have also been having so much time with Ella in school and a RIDICULOUS amount of our friends have Fall BABIES! So we literally have a birthday party every weekend from Sept 18th through Nov 7th!!! Holy cow! But we are having fun!

And I also have my fantasy football season taking up a chunk of my time as well. But I PROMISE to get some photos up soon. I just updated Ella's blog at www.elladalynn.blogspot.com

Love you all!

PS- I am so grateful to my friends for all their support of JCarilli Designs and all their encouragement and the referral business they have been sending my way. It is so nice to see Mommas and Women (and even some of my MALE friends) supporting each other. =)

Falling in Love with FALL!

I seriously have never ever in almost 32 years on this Earth been more excited for FALL then I am right now. I am so done with Summer and ready for the cooler weather. If it weren't for the Christmas Season I would easily say that Fall is my favorite Season. But I have to go with Winter as #1 because of all the cool Holiday events and parties and music and excitement and wonder that come along with it.I am walking in stores and just see FALL everywhere I look. The stores already have fall wreaths and scarecrows and EEK Halloween Costumes! I cant believe it! Maybe also it is because my two babies are both Fall babies and we have that to look forward to also. When the cooler weather hits we basically spend every night at the park after dinner with our friends. It is great! We really look forward to that time and to catching up with friends that we don't get to see so much while we are all couped up indoors. I cant wait for Ella to ride her bike more and for Ryen to play in the sand. Just everything! I cant WAIT for Halloween. Ryen is going to be a cute little bumble bee and Ella is going to be allowed to pick her own. I cant wait for our neighborhood Halloween party and FOOTBALL season is starting in a week or so! Oh MY GOSH! Lazy Sundays watching Football and anxiously staring at my fantasy football scoreboard, hoping I can repeat my championship victory of last year.

The only thing missing is the changing of the leaves which strangely for us happens in like January when it gets cool enough for them to turn a little color and fall off the trees. We never get the vibrant fall colors of the East Coast, but then again we never get the freezing temps that keep us bone chilling cold and indoors from Nov to March either. Everything is a trade off I suppose.

We have had a GREAT Summer of swimming and splashpads and vacations, but are ready to begin a new season. Hence I felt the need to change my blog, in the hopes maybe Fall will arrive a little faster! Hee Hee!
