October craft-a-thon

October is almost upon us! Hooray to the start to the holiday season!
I think that there are so many holidays in the winter month to stave off the depression of winter that would surely fall on us if we didn't have costumes, turkey, holly and kisses at midnight to cheer us up!
We are planning to have our annual Halloween party again this year and I am open to any fun party or crafting ideas you have and plan to return the favor with (hopefully) a craft-a-day on the blog this October! I figure that between all the project I have planned in the kiddos rooms and a Halloween party to prepare for I should do okay. Plus it will be a great motivator to get all the crafty thing done that I need to do anyway!

Birmingham Zoo

We went with some of our church friends to the Birmingham Zoo. James really enjoyed it and love getting to hang out with his best little friend Raney. The First picture is my favorite! James just loves the monkeys and got to see 6 different kinds. Some where very active and this one in the picture startled him a few times but running quickly down a branch that intersected the glass, it was super funny!

James is acting out the tiger's food being thrown into his cage and splashing in the water. If you look closely you can see the tiger low in the grass eating.

Crafting for Lillian

I am working on several project for Lillian's room...well actually I have 3 rooms going at the same time! I am working on the kitchen nook, finishing James new room and Lillian's. So busy busy!

But back to Lillian's projects! I saw the cutest letters in a magazine (for much more than I was going to pay) and wanted something similar if not better. So I broke out the glue gun and decoupage and set to work at my handy-dandy crafting table.
Here is the end result and if I do say myself they are super cute and so much better than the ones I saw in the mag. ;)
