Pumpkin Carving 2011

Holly & Bryan carved pumpkins this weekend while Hudson drew on his pumpkin. They went Saturday morning to the pumpkin patch together to pick out a couple of good carving pumpkins. They chose one for me too... however, I have not had time to carve it. Maybe I'll keep it around for the month of November for harvest decor.

As always, they carved two wonderful pumpkins. Hudson enjoyed coloring his pumpkin! They had a lot of fun together. This year Holly saved a few pumpkin seeds to dry and see if they will grow next year - that should make for a fun little experiment next summer!

My Little Peacock

This year Holly wanted to be a peacock for Halloween. Not sure what to do with that I found some inspiration online and created a peacock costume! It was actually rather simple, pretty quick and perfect for her! She loves it and I love it - it was a win, win for us both.

Here is my little peacock:

Camp Fire

Holly has started her second year of Camp Fire and is loving it! This year have started a first grade troop with some members from last years club and a few new members. It has started out so nicely and she is having a great time! Here are a couple of photos from yesterday's meeting where the kids are finishing up their first badge 'all about me'. They were painting a time capsule to store away until the end of the year and they started a hand stitched project of their hand prints at age six. Such a fun day!
