Halloween 2011

Happy Halloween, at least if you're not a small pumpkin.


Fall Farm Fun

When are we going to go do something?

This is more like it!

I'm just happy no matter what.

I found Pumpkin Bob!

Fall Farm Fun Part 2

Pumpkin Bob is going home.

Donkey petting

Cow train

This was the biggest hit with my kids. Instead of a sandbox, they had a cornbox.

Sam liked it too.

Cardboard Box Robot Costume

Step 1: Take a milk jug and cut out the back part. Add eye holes.

Step 2: Hot glue two milk lids (with the backs cut out) to the eye holes for depth. Add plastic circles with hole punched circles. Cut out mouth.

Step 3: Glue some plastic from the jugs to form the details of the face. I used another jug to make the head taller. I also pinched the plastic to make a nose.

Step 4: Paint gold and then forget to document the rest of the process. Let's just say there's boxes, crepe paper, paper plates, bubble wrap, and straps involved. Can you tell what robot he's supposed to be?

6 Month Sam

"Don't mind me, I'm just helping dad fix the faucet."

"ZZZZZ... downward dog....zzzzzz."

"The bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain! To see his Mommy!"

Liz's party

We decided to have a friend party this year for Liz. We invited kids from sunbeams and preschool. Liz wanted a rainbow cake we had seen on Pinterest, so I went with rainbows. This is how it turned out.

I've been on this blog many many times, yet I always forget that the order I upload the photos is the opposite of what it will post it as. Anyway, these are the balloon decorations we did. It was really fun and looked awesome from the top of our stairs. The balloons looked like they were floating in midair. However, tape was not enough to hold the strands and they kept coming down, so now all of the balloons are hanging out in Liz's room. I don't have a picture of it, but I think the best part of the party was when we gave the kids their own balloons and they just ran around with them.

We made some mini pizzas with toasted hamburger buns. The kids loved making their own pizzas.

The kids loved these rainbow kabobs.

My first real birthday cake. It turned out good. We normally don't really eat cake, and this was gone in a week!

We did some crafts and played some games. We had lots of games, and just had a blast. Liz loves being 4.
