Dr. Seuss Week

4 Mar

It’s been Dr. Seuss week at school and today they were supposed to dress up as their favorite character. Emma immediately screamed HORTON HEARS A WHO!!

We went to walmart and raided the craft section. We got shiny paper, tulle, pom poms, pipe cleaners, glitter glue, quick dry glue, and a headband! I already had packing tape, scissors, a toilet paper role, elastic and a sock on hand.

We cut out ears and taped them to the headband, then used pipe cleaners for the hair. I just twisted them together around the headband to stay.

We used tulle, a toilet paper roll, tape, and elastic to make the nose. Paper and elastic for the mask with some pipe cleaner eyebrows!

And a sock with a cut up end for the tail! The flower was pom poms glued together and glued to pipe cleaners that I made into a bracelet for her so she didn’t have something to carry around all day at school. There was a little silver glitter speck on the flower for whoville.

Needless to say she was so excited to go to school today!

Trick or Treating Round 2!

3 Nov

Since Emma did so well trick or treating at the church event – we decided to give it a go around our neighborhood!

 

This time was a little different – she had Daddy to share it with 🙂

 

After each door she’d say, “Daddy! Can we do one more!?”

 

We live in a small neighborhood with only a few kids, so Brian and I were expecting only a couple of houses to be passing out candy. Turns out only a few weren’t! She came home loaded with candy – we’ll be set for years (since I only let her have one a day!)

 

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Love Always,

Our Halloween Weekend

31 Oct

I don’t know what it is about the word time management but the second I hear it my brain says GET TO WORK! and it happens. Along with getting done all of my errands Friday, I also got all of my chores done! Then B and I went out with JO and SO to Dave and Busters. I have never been there before but the best way to describe this place is a Chuck-E-Cheese for Adults! The drinks were amazing, the food was on par, and the games .. TOTALLY AWESOME! I give this place five stars and you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be going back.

Yesterday was completely the opposite. Although we got a lot accomplished it was purely relaxation and crafts! B and I went pumpkin picking and bought two good sized pumpkins for carving. Me being less than professional stuck the expected pattern face. Nana (B’s Mom) chose a similar traditional style. Then B chose the deathstar from Star Wars. I love him. Well it isn’t fun without pictures so take a look!

This one was mine 🙂

And this one is Nana’s!

And B’s half completed Deathstar from Star Wars. This will be updated later with the finished picture so stay tuned!

Just another pic of E

I am also making some Halloween crafts/decorations today and maybe even some cookies!! I’ll post those later along with B’s finished Deathstar and E’s Halloween costume! Lets just say this is the first Halloween that I have been excited for since I was a kid.

Love Always,

J
