Ready for Action!

I made these robots for the boys, I guess it was two years ago already! I used THIS pattern. They were going to be Christmas presents but they never made it under the tree! Riley and Logan were waiting to grab them as soon as they came off the sewing machine!
The boys love it when I make something just for them. I have a stack of cozy flannel, that the boys picked out themselves, waiting to be made into p.j. pants.

Pink Denim Jacket

I found this little pink jacket at a garage sale this summer. I paid a dollar for it. Then I gave it a make-over. It was a fun project to work on.
It has a "shabby chic" look to it. Evie loves to wear it!

If you look close you will notice there are fabric yo-yo's, chenille hearts, bits of lace, and a few scraps of her baby clothes.

Here is something fun! Check out this link for an amazing creation on a blog called Grosgrain.

camping + trick-or-treating=tired mom and dad!

We spent the weekend at Yankee Springs State Campgound. It was their "Halloween" weekend! The kids got to paint pumpkins, meet Smokey the Bear, play "carnival" games, there were also crafts and a scavenger hunt. But the biggest event was the trick-or-treating! Many of the campsites went all out with decorations! Lights! Inflatables! Spooky music! Fog Machines! There were even a few Haunted Houses (tents)! We put lights and cobwebs on our awning and decorated this fence that was on our site.
The kids had a blast and got so much candy that I've had to help them eat some! In case your wondering, that's Evie as a winged pony ( not wearing the horse head hood), Riley as Sonic the Hedgehog, and Logan as, none other than Davy! Davy Crockett, King of the front wood tier! (His version of the song is better than the original!)
