Declan was Jack Sparrow for Halloween. It wasn't initially what he wanted to be, but once we got to Target and he saw his options, this was the best one. I made his pirate boots out of felt. Surprisingly enough, he was the only Jack Sparrow that I saw while Trick-or-Treating in Georgetown. Cool make up courtesy of Greg, and I quick made the felt beard, braided with beads and stuck to child's chin with glue dots! When I would catch a glimpse of him in the rear view mirror, it didn't even look like him!
Teagan was Super Girl. She opted out of any make up, but rocked her cool costume with authentic red boots. I actually thought her costume was darling.
Maren chose to be a Ladybug. Up until the time I took this picture she was not going to wear the wings. Then decided to put them on for the photo. Greg drew her eyelashes on. She was thrilled!
I painted the girls room lavender. I made the little butterfly pictures on the shelves. Their room still needs something else on the walls, but I haven't decided what yet.
I also upgraded Declan's bedding to more 'mature' plaid. He liked the car bedding he's had since he was 2, but I was ready for a change. I'm going to do something on the walls in here as well, but I'm thinking horizontal planking or something along those lines. I'll have to think some more on that...
Greg called me out to see this beautiful sunset. When we first moved in here, we busted our tail getting things done during day, in hopes of relaxing out on the deck before the sunset was gone. We recently realized that we haven't sat out on the porch and watched the sunset in awhile. I ran to get the camera, hoping to get some shots before it got too dark.
I love that I have a knack for catching a dog whizzing in many pictures. I should go back through to see if I can do a post of all dog whiz pictures. Won't you be on the edge of your seats waiting for that? LOL!
Then we celebrated Greg's birthday with Lemon cake. I tried to make the little blue candles into the shape of a "4" since I had a "5" candle. But the kids were quick to point out that I had 55 on Greg's cake. I love that they are old enough to start pointing out my faults.....
