The Fall Festival



It took me a couple full days to finish these costumes. I am evidently not so good with elastic. Everything with elastic was too big. I made the knee pads for Wonder Red with elastic and they are down around her ankles. Oops.

This was at our Fall Festival at our Church. They had games for the kids to play to get candy or a toy prize. They had a bouncy house, which by far was the most popular thing for all the kids.



I could not for the life of me find a pink crown. I found purple, green, silver, and more, but no pink ones. So we went to the dollar store to improvise. I bought pink foam crown shapes, and pipe cleaners. I used hot glue to fold over the bottom of the crown to encase the pipe cleaners to hold it onto her head, and also to glue on the gems to the crown. However, her forehead turned pink… and it just had to wear off, wipes didn’t help.



Next year, I hope I choose something less labor intensive. My house certainly did not thank me for all the hours I neglected it to make these costumes. But the girls were so happy. 🙂


Tricycle at the Park

DSCN0869We went to the park this weekend. It has miles of trails. I thought instead of just walking, I’d let my daughter take her tricycle out for a spin. We usually only use the tricycle in the house because I’m not crazy enough to let four toddlers 3 and under outside with wheels. Next we just need to get a bicycle with training wheels, a bike for me and we can have a family biking outing. I’m looking forward to that.

Zoo Trip

Last Thursday we went to the zoo. Something new to do.

The girls had lots of fun petting the goats, sheep and fish.

DSCN0797This turkey would come closer to me every time I would kneel down to take a picture. My husband knelt down to and it immediately started walking toward him. A little too close for comfort,a t least for me.
