Halloween: Day One

When you have kids and they go to school you end up "celebrating" holidays more than once... so today was Halloween: Day One. Ethan had his Costume Parade at school. He is a robot. He decided on the costume idea all by himself and I put it together. We "garbage picked" an old printer and smashed it apart for some of the components. It is kind of heavy, so he took it off after the parade- we may have to make some adjustments to it before the Big Night.

The body is made from a box that a case of wine came in (how fitting!) and the head is a Goldfish Cracker box. We sprayed his yellow boots silver.

More Halloween......

Hudson had his 7th birthday bash today. Pirate themed (obviously)... It was lots of fun!Having 8 boys in the house (including Ethan) was, well, interesting! We had a treasure hunt and a pirate ship cake. I think he was afraid the ships flags were going to catch fire... look at his expression!

Having Fun Isn't Hard When You've Got A Library Card!

If you're not an Arthur fan you may not recognize the title of this post... But that's what Hudson was feeling yesterday when he FINALLY got his own library card. Turning seven is so very exciting!! Not only do you get a library card, but you get to ditch your booster seat too!
