What fun things did I do with my family and/or friends?

We had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory for Captain Chaos’ 3rd birthday, did some shopping at the mall, built and played with lots of Legos. We took a family trip to the State Fair, which was fun, but a little disappointing.

What gifts did I give and/or receive?

Oh my, yes. Captain Chaos turned 3 on the 10th. Which was kind of fun! He got Buzz + Woody Legos and McQueen Legos.

What special or unusual purchases did I make?

Iron Man 2. Halloween costumes – Buzz Lightyear and Ariel (The Little Mermaid). How to Train Your Dragon. That’s two movies in one month!

What illnesses or health concerns did I have?

None really. Getting everyone flu shots was the biggest health issue we had!

What were my accomplishments this month?

I have a layout being published in the 2011 Memory Logbook. This is the first time one of my scrapbook layouts has been chosen for publication!

I reorganized all of my layouts into “albums” here on the site. It was a simple process with Flickr and also helped me see where I had missed some stories that I wanted to tell (See the Sears Tower of Terror layout).

We moved into another major era of history in our school work, finishing up the Reconstruction/Industrial Revolution period and moving into a study of World War I. Learning about that makes the sacrifices of our veterans and military so much more real. Thank you for serving.

I also scrapped 9 layouts this month (all linked for credits and visibility):

Halloween LittleFish So Hard three Stop Time True Story New Orleans Sears-Tower wonderful

What were my disappointments this month?

None really. October was a good month.

    How did you like Jackdaws? Ken Follett is one of my favorite authors. I”m assuming you’ve read Pillars of the Earth? If not, you MUST. It’s FABULOUS!
