Countdown Oct or Dec

What can I say, Peeps...I'm a NASA Space Station/Space Shuttle wife and use to work in the industry myself.  I'm apparently into countdowns.  lol  And...yes, Dear Holly from Banner Haus..they are called Space Weiners, Geeks...I was a Bean Counter to them. lol

Hubby got to stand on this Ares II platform recently and watch from across the lake..

while this happened..

So glad he ran out and bought a new video cam combo for his special trip.
We were suppose to all get to go, I think back in May, but he thought it would slip dates and didn't buy our no refund tickets.  He'd have missed this extraordinary opportunity to watch from on site if his family had been with him so I'm happy for him.  We are running out of ops to see launches, Peeps. 

Jessica at Me and My Bucket does a weekly meme...
Show us What You are Working With Wednesday.

Jessica is very talented and gets to collect really cool posts thru her meme.
Her recent post stands out as a cool idea in my mind this week..
Her Christmas Countdown version..

Her Halloween Countdown version..

Yes, she's a rock star with an Etsy shop and all. 
I like that you can repurpose a frame and have the countdown be a simple display that you can have your child go to once a day and remove a number to reveal what is under. :)

See, Peeps...I'm not just Ms. Jingle Bells.  I love me some Fall and Halloween mayhem too.

  1. I love countdowns!! Those countdowns are so decorative and what fun for the kids to play with. I can't wait for Halloween! I love to decorate for it. The cooler weather will be nice as well, lol.

    I am glad your husband got to watch that. What great experiences you all have had!

  2. Love the CHRISTmas blog! So glad a fellow Christian doesn't freak out over Halloween! Have a good one, I'm now following both of your blogs!

  3. Hey, I'm a space wienie, too! I used to work for a company called Sea Launch; we launched satellites. I can still remember the excitement and insanity leading up to a launch. Good times,good times. I really miss that place...I work for the Mother Ship now (Boeing)

    AND I am a TOTAL FALL FREAK! Autumn is hands down my favorite time of year, and I have mega amounts of Fall decor. I live in SoCal at the moment, and we don't get much Fall, but I hope to get back to our home in the Ozarks soon, so I can wallow in Autumn!

    I,too, am glad to see another Christian who doesn't spaz out over Halloween. I don't have kids, so I haven't ever gotten in to it fully, but I am getting in to it lately, as far as kinda Gothic-elegant, creepy decor. I have a twisted sense of humor, and have gotten a few of those creepy old-time pictures that turn into scary pictures when you look at them from a certain angle! I love Halloween Haunt kind of music; my husband and I have started building up a collection of Midnight Syndicate CDs.

    Gosh, I'm sorry to ramble...I came here to tell you about my blog bling....I did it myself; what you want to do is check out the digital scrapbook sites. If you want to email me, I can give you some great places to check out! (

  4. Hi there DeniseMarie! I am so excited we found each others blog and can follow along for the fun! I do need a poster!! You're so right! :) Yeah..gotta love living in OK...seems as though I'm neighbors with your family..I'm not far at all from those locations. Good times!
    Hugs to you,
