New Blog Design

I finally won!!  Yeah me!  Diana over at  Diana Rambles does custom blogs.  She emailed me and told me that I won her blog makeover giveaway.  Check out her work at Custom Blog Designs.  She’s doing another giveaway, this time for a custom holiday photo card.

It’s been pretty busy around her.  L is always going over to his girlfriend’s house but her parents are strict so on school nights he has to be out of there by 7.  I think I like these parents!  Tonight he can hang out until 11 because there is no school tomorrow.  Then he plans to go over to his BFF’s house and spend the night there playing some war game.  (isn’t she a cutie?)


Little T is humming right along.  She enjoys her school and really enjoys her big brother picking her up everyday.  Today she came home and told me she was the class helper.  Oh my, was she exited!  Her gymnastics is getting better and better.  They are starting to challenge her which is great.  These pictures aren’t the best but at least you get an idea.




We took her to a small fall festival a few weeks back and she had a wonderful time.  Her facial expressions crack me up all the time.  Here are a few that I caught while at the fall festival and then during another trip to the park.







She has also been playing dress up in her room lately.  Here is one get up she came out with.  tpetti1

Little T was a lady bug for halloween but she actually missed the whole trick-or-treat outing!  We made a quick trip to NY over that weekend.  I was hoping that one of the communities up there would do the festivities one evening during the weekend like they do down here.  Then it dawned on me….we live in the bible belt so trick-or-treating is usually NOT done on a Sunday.  Our area held it Friday night and another community held theirs Saturday.  Up in NY?  They held it Sunday, the day we headed back home.  Oh well…she really didn’t miss it because we don’t make a big deal of it at all.  She did dress up for her Nana and her Aunt Judy though!!  (and no, I don’t have a picture!!)

Ok, that’s it for tonight.  She is sitting on my lap because you know, there is NO where else for her to sit.  She doesn’t have a room full of toys, she doesn’t have her daddy down in the living room who would play with her, nope, she doesn’t have any of that.  So she HAS to sit on my lap, or touch me, or be in the same room with me, but mostly sit on my lap and pretend she is making chocolate milk for me…or baking a cake…or bringing her baby to me….ya’ll get the picture.  She is a momma’s girl which is absolutely wonderful except sometimes this momma needs a break!!!!!!!  Calgon??!!  Anyone??

What a cutie pie!!!

Yeah for those parents! It might be a better world if more parents were strict in that way.

Have a great day!

Love the new design! And LOVIN' the girlfriend's parents!!!

I adore the photos of your little one in gymnastics - oh the determination!!!

P.S. Sorry my blog is closed right now - I had a major issue with someone compromising my personal security & anonymity (can't remember if I emailed you about this?!) and until I am able to get everything straightened out and transferred to either Wordpress or just going completely password-protected on Blogger I'm "closed" right now. But I'm reading along and hope to be back blogging within the next week or so - so please be patient and come back when I do!

I love your blog layout too! Congratulations on the blog makeover win!

Your little T is adorable! I had to laugh at your comment at the end because as I read your post, my little Luke was sitting in my lap for the same reasons, obviously, and evidently, I wasn't giving him enough room! :)

Thank you for your comment on my blog! It sounds like we're in the same boat with our hubbies! Maybe we should pray for each other! :)

Blessings from our family to yours!
