Kristina's Color Challenge #26



I really wanted natural light but I was out of time.. I took a few pictures with the flash and hated them.. So I ran out on the front porch.. And hey, It's better than the flash.  This challenge was so hard to wrap my brain around in 30 minutes... But I didn't even think I was going to be able to do it at all. We have been so busy. We are staying home for Fall break this year. We really wanted to head to Vegas and play with our friends the Clayton's {Heart} you guys.. But alas we have the craziest Saturday ever.. Saturday being right smack in the middle of the Fall break we deiced to stay home and play with the kiddos.. Last night we took the kids to "Kung Fu Panda" How cute is that movie.. This was a second viewing for some of us and was received just a great as the first time.  We had a couple of the little cousins for a sleep over and we all stayed up way to late... We had a sleep-in this morning and DH made Cinnamon French Toast... Yummy!  We mostly chilled today. I planned for a SU presentation I have to do for Saturday morning and kids played outside and on the computer. Today was so warm kids in shorts no coats. It's about time... Watch it will snow again tonight... We took the kids to a late lunch early dinner at the "Italian Village" in SLC. It's one of those places that still looks the same as it did in the 70's. Not even Italian decor.. But dang! they have the most amazing dish called a "bender" basically like a Calzone.. Yummo!!! The Kids love it.. Then nothing like a date night to "Costco".. Then home to do a quick Kristina challenge... And now off to finish preparing for tomorrow.
