Despite a day of rain, Matthew's stomach flu and Doug's injured leg, we finally did get our leaves pictures! I only took 83 photos (aren't you proud? lol) and they aren't that great, to be honest. I caught a couple... and yes, we blew the leaves, didn't even touch a rake yesterday!
The last two are funny: look at Matt's jump in the right side of the second-to-last and the last photo is McKenna "helping" Daddy - looks like she's ready to attack!

Onto the table we go!!! Scary, isn't it? I don't even know what's ON this table... let alone how long that deco scissor drawer's been open, lol!
By the way, I found out my camera was on the sport feature, that's why my photos have been coming out so wacky...
By the end of the day, I had the tabletop completely cleaned off and ready to use... and I did! That small stackable drawer unit:
used to have:
- deco scissors
- scrapbooking markers - the really old kind
now it has!
- scrapbooking markers - the new kind
- handmade theme swaps (not kidding!!!)
- baggies in the middle
- random handbags in the bottom.
Now it has!
- alphas in the top,
- chipboard in the 2nd and
- wooden alterables in the bottom.

Ahhh... success!! Well, at least success under the table, not on top, yet! This is pre-vacuuming, but I'm so proud! OOhh... See that brown cardboard box? That's my secret santa box for my ScrapStreet secret sister! No peeking!
Oops... guess I left a little mess of a pile on my computer desk... I'm on it!
I've contacted my local scrapbooking Yahoo group and I found a Kindergarten teacher and a girl scout troop that will accept donations from me! It's actually motivating me more knowing this stuff will go to a good cause. Look: before pictures! These start from the left side of the room and circle around to the right... YIKES!
My bookshelves... kinda where all the house stuff lands.
I once was pretty organized... see all those little shoebox totes? All labeled and organized. I wish I hadn't gone with plastic, but since it's already bought, I'll probably continue with these totes...
See the gray tub in this picture? Yesterday and today, this is what I tackled first - go look at the photo in my next post to see what I got out of it!
Those Priority boxes are themed and the crate all the way in the back right corner under the table is scraps indexed by color. Hear me rolling my eyes? Seriously... why keep THAT many scraps? Recycle, here I come!
Oh, Dear. This is the wall that scares me... Again with the frightening plastic, but there is a nice 40-tier tower tucked in there somewhere.This is just junk! I see a box that was packed when we thought we were moving... a year ago! And oh, how my letters are screaming for some organization!! Not the letters nicely filed in tackle boxes, the sets that are in my kids' primary-colored stacking baskets... cripes!Ok, so this shelf doesn't look TOO bad. From back here. That's gymnastics references to the left. OOPS... maybe I lied about not looking too bad. Next to the pile on the left is another horizontal pile... you caught me. Finished layouts from at least 2 years ago that need homes. *blush*
Then I see some cardstock in Verticals... Smurfs in the hanging basket. :D Oops - blurry! This is "dh's" desk... Top shelf full of albums. Most unfinished - I see a POLICE album still in the box, never touched. I see a pregancy album for Matthew. The dark blue, I think, is the police album I DID start for dh. The white might be my scrapbook for our trip to London. In 1991. Spiral? Who knows...
Oh! below that shelf... the purple is pregnancy with McKenna, one of Matthew's 2nd year (I think) album and ... gosh, what IS that beige colored one? This is the cubby and cabinet below those shelves. The white is my unfinished wedding scrapbook. The photo album is college-aged pics, from 11 years ago-ish. Oh! There is one shelf for dh's police reference books and under that... ?
