Halloween Pumpkins

Still some Halloween stuff--pumpkins.  First, my only other creative Halloween decoration this year.  I have some big candlesticks on my mantle that we covered in spider webs.  Then it suddenly dawned on me one day, pumpkins.  So I got three little pumpkins and replaced my candles with them.

Then, we have some carved pumpkins.  Our neighbors host a pumpkin carving party each year; this year it was last weekend.  Tyler wanted to do a werewolf; we found this wolf howling at the moon online.

And here is everyone's pumpkins all line up outside.  Did you notice I had to set my camera on the grass to keep it still enough?  Kind of a fun and different angle.

We are going to have to carve another pumpkin closer to Halloween.  Our poor wolf is covered in mold and already taken to the trash today.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween Decor

While I haven't posted on my blog in a long time, I have certainly still been reading blogs.  I saw this idea on one of my favorite decor/crafty blogs.  She simply spray painted sticks and stuck them in a container.  So when I was driving down my street and saw my neighbors' tree getting cut down, I ran over and stole a few branches.  Ok, I asked the tree cutters first if I could take them, and after they looked at me oddly, they said yes.

I loved the way this simple, easy, and thrifty idea turned out.

For grandma and grandpa

I am back with a fully functioning laptop!!
And because my parents have missed their grandchildren fix, I will now attempt to to remedy that.

I'll be back soon.

I discovered that I missed blogging.  I have really missed my laptop, but I will be getting it back this weekend.  Hallelujah.  I have still been taking photos, and trying to get better shots.  I have been doing projects and getting ready for Halloween.  I have a list of  future blog posts, so hopefully I will be back soon with a vengeance.

I will leave you with some bath pictures.  All three boys had a bubble bath in my big tub.  Some liked it better than others.
