Anniversary, Pumpkin Head, Car prowlers and sad news

First of all...  It's Happy Anniversary to me and my guy!!  I am such a lucky girl..

Well, another Labor Day has come and gone and it's back to work but at least it's a short work week.. Yahoo..  Hope you all had a great one..  Friday night my hubby and I watched the Seahawks, win.. Yes, I said win... Yippee!!  Yahoo!!  Even though just pre-season so nice to be able to say we won... haha..  On Saturday I mostly stitched and finished up a Pumpkin Head Doll for a request.. She sent me a photo and asked me if I could make something like it.. Boy, was the pressure on.. haha..  I sent her a photo and I was soooo relieved when she said she loved him... Here he is:
I have still been trying to finish up the ornies/tucks I have started.. Witches boots, bats, ghosts, more candy corn.. I wonder if it's too late now and people are going to start wanting Xmas goodies instead.. hmmm..

Saturday morning we were woke up by Bella (our newfie) barking at around 5:00 am...  My hubby went to see what she was barking at and noticed a shadow on a white truck across the street and a couple houses down, he didn't think the shadow looked right so he put Bella in her kennel, went to the window looked out again and the shadow was still there but he said it looked like he was smoking, just thought weird..  Came running in, put shorts on, grabbed his gun and went outside..  I of course don't know what the heck is going on and was a little panicky...  I turned our front light out and went outside and my hubby was just leaning on the gate trying to see if he could see any shadows or movement cuz the person by the truck was now gone.. So I took him out a flashlight and he went over there looking under, in, around the cars, yards.. yikes.. I am a little freaked out at this point..  You never know if the other person has a weapon or not..  Then I hear him say, "I Knew It", the window of the truck was broken out and the window to the canopy was slide open.  My hubby went up to the neighbors door but they are hard of hearing and didn't answer.  Then I see a light go on in their basement and go out.  I was worried not knowing if the person had gotten into their house or not.  We called the cops and they said not sure what we can do if they don't answer for you... Really??? OMG!!!  So,,,  a little while later I see the neighbors coming outside.  They have a couple dogs and their rustling and movement must have woke them up.  I guess it is a friends truck that is visiting and his camera got stolen.  The burglar probably would have made a haul if he had time to get to the back canopy cuz it was jam packed with stuff since this guy was traveling..  wow...  This is the 2nd time my hubby has seen a car prowler.. Good thing for our Bella....  What a good girl!!

And... on to the sad news.. I got a phone call this weekend that my bosses youngest of 7 children passed away on Saturday.  He was only 19, getting ready to go to college then on to his mission.  It has been a very quiet somber day here at work..  Two of my bosses other sons and two of his brothers also work with me so it is really hard to think of anything else and get anything done..  My thoughts and prayers go out to their family..  Such a sad tragedy... 

Hope you all are doing well, until next time.. Hugs, Tina



First, love that pumpkin guy. Go Bella! and so sorry to hear about your bosses' youngest, I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a child. Take care, Cyndy

Love your pumpkin head doll Tina - sounds like a stressful time around your place with noises in the night and unexpected deaths...it is always sad to hear of the death of a young person...so full of life...but cut short.
Hugs dear
