A Picture Post

We took full advantage of today's beautiful weather (clear blue skies and a comfortable 70 degrees for the afternoon high) by visiting our favorite pumpkin patch. It sits adjacent to the "U-Pick Garden" we've been frequenting and which I wrote about last month.

I'm not sure who had more fun today...Dylan and Caitlyn enjoying all the amazing activities, or Darren and I watching their happy playing!

I just adore pumpkin patch pictures. Your kids are BEAUTIFUL! And what great weather. I'm so glad everyone had such an awesome day. Pumpkin and apple picking are our favorite things to do...

Your kids are such cuties! The pictures are lovely as well. The sky in NM always looks so much bluer than here. :(

ok, this is off topic, but....

I am amazed how you keep making thngs look so nice in your sidebar. I am continually frsutrated with mine. How did you get it so nice with the books and music. I like yours much better than mine.

Let me know your secrets.

Celeste,

Thank you for the very nice compliment. I'm embarrassed to admit, however, that my sidebar is simply the result of WAY too much time spent messing around on the computer! In fact, I wasn't even sure if I was satisfied with it because whenever I tried to add titles with the pictures the formatting would get messed up. So I simply linked the pictures using the "compose" function (much like I described with the clipart) and then copied and pasted them into my template. The headings ("Reading", "Listening", etc.) are ones that I found through the help section which are specific to this template. I think now it's grown on me and I'm pretty happy with the end result!

For what it's worth, I think your blog looks great! I sort of wish I had gone with a template that had more color, but now I've spent so much time messing with this one that I'm afraid if I changed I'd lose everything!

Anyway, I don't know if this helped at all. Probably not, it doesn't make much sense now that I'm re-reading it! I guess it just all comes down to trial and error. If you want, you can e-mail me!

Happy blogging!

Liss-

It's amazing to watch your fingers flying over the keyboard when you are doing stuff to your template - don't sell yourself short, you've become really good at this!!!!

It looks great! I'm glad you were able to figure it out! I listened to some samples from your music selections...I think I might have to go shopping!!! :)
