Almost up to date!

I love the fall, and 2 out of 3 of my favorite things to do in the fall is......

                                                             
                                                                  Pumpkin picking!



We joined some friends this year in a special My Dad is Stronger than you're Dad Competition


And though I don't have a picture of Adam holding these, he was holding all of these and took 3 steps. 
He didn't win but was pretty close.
He's still super strong in my book!

We had a good time and even better memories made!




My 2nd favorite thing to do is.....



yep you guessed it, making costumes for my kids, they like the trick or treating part!

But every year I go out of my way to add more stress to my life by making their costumes as opposed to all the millions of other people who just go buy them.
But #1 too expensive now to get 3 kids costumes 
#2 They make for great memories, because they're OOAK.

So  on the left we have Iron man, which didn't take much work because he already had everything in his toy bin.
Now the little mouse was cute but the cheese was a genius idea on my part! ;)

And well Wonder woman, was the one that I was working on till the last minute, cause 8 year olds are not easily impressed.
But she LOVED it.
Simple no sew tutu using a headband, red tshirt, felt emblem and all her accessories came from a cereal box and paper towel roll.  I love a good bargain!

Anyway we had a blast with our friends hosting a little shindig for the kids and then off to Trick or Treat.

It's one of those traditions that my kids will always remember.

Anyway I think I'm all caught up for Turkey Day! Keep you posted maybe I'll even have a craft to share next time!

See Ya!
