35: Question

I have been working on the kids costumes for two weeks and they are so close to being done. I have known for months that they were going to be some kind of sea life (You will die when you see pictures, I am so excited). I have been playing with the idea of dressing up (I haven't for years) but had no idea what I could be. It needed to be cute enough to match the water theme but not so much work that it would take another two weeks of sewing. I had just about given up when it hit me. Pirates sail in the ocean!

So I ask you again do I look like a pirate and is there anything I can add that will kick it up a notch?

34: more pumpkins

I thought I would show you my fall decor.
I love pumpkins. It is kind of an obsession. I love to eat them,smell them, carve them you name it I love it. I think they are one of the most beautiful creations of the earth. I learned how to make these pumpkins a couple years ago and I just couldn't stop. This year they are living on my stairs, and they make so so happy.

Sorry they arn't very good pictures, its a dark stair way. But my pumpkins help brighten it up!

This is where mummy lives when it is raining outside!

31; Walk Around

We live in a college town and home coming is the most important week of the year. The greek houses in Stillwater build "Decks" and spend hours "Pomping" them with tissue paper. They are very elaborate and probably cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the insane amount of man hours forced upon each member of the fraternity or sorority. There were 10 to 12 decks this year. Several had motorized parts and a couple included fountains. It's like a parade except the floats are stable and the spectators are walking around. They estimated 75 thousand people to attend this year. The theme was staying connected.

Elliot loved the Toy Story themed one. You can kind of see how many tiny pieces of tissue paper it takes to cover even a small section. They looked like giant rugs.

Did I mention they are HUGE?!

T-shirts and babies

My baby turned one today!

We are having a party for him this weekend. Really the party is for Elliot. He was invited to his first birthday party ever last month and it is still all he talks about. If it were for me I would be okay with a cupcake and a T-shirt to celebrate the year mark of my sweet baby Malcolm.

I whipped up this birthday shirt for Malcolm when I realized we had nothing planned for him till this weekend!

Elliot LOVED Malcolm's birthday shirt he said "Malcolm one, Elliot two" I had no choice but to whip up another for the best big brother in town!
