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!
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!
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.
