Every year the library has a pumpkin decorating contest. This year we waited until the last minute to buy and paint our pumpkins. They are due Monday, and the girls spent Thursday night and Friday morning painting away. L-bug's pumpkin is named Princess Pumpkin. Boo wanted to make hers a crown too, though not in these pictures. At first Boo's pumpkin was named Special Kitty. We all asked her why Special Kitty was green, but she didn't care to tell us. Special Kitty is a stuffed animal she has that is white, black and pink.
Tuesday at story time they had a firefighter come in to read the kids a story and show them around a fire bus. They girls had a blast. Even L-bug wanted to make the little craft. She helped Boo with her glue first though, she's a good big sissy.
Sunday was free ride day at the carousel, so we brought the girls. They loved it so much that we stayed for close to an hour. The people were so nice and let them ride as many times as we wanted. We must have been there at a slow time, because when I talked to a friend later she said they waited in line in between rides. We lucked out and were able to just keep going.
We finally caught the little guy who has been eating the last of our tomatoes. Due to all the rain we've been getting the tomatoes were split open anyway, but it was fun to see the squirrel who has been enjoying our garden.
The girls found badminton rackets so we brought them to the backyard to play. L-bug was pretty bad, but she kept trying and got better. Ro-bear decided to keep score for us, but her idea of score was- L-bug is always winning.
I've seen the trend on Pinterest about Sharpie markers and mugs, and was interested in it for a while. I finally found some plain white mugs marked down and read up on the process and knew to not use regular sharpies. I bought a paint pen and drew these for out as presents. I have a couple mugs left to draw on so we'll see what other mugs I get to make. I was really happy with these though.
The only other craft I've been working on lately is this cross stitch. I believe it was designed by Sisyphus or maybe the energizer bunny. It just keeps going and going and going. I'm almost finished now though, I'm very glad its a Christmas present.
I hope you've been having a wonderful two weeks. Come back and visit us again in another two. We'll be here, singing ABCs and counting our 1,2, Fluffies. (Boo doesn't have a good grasp on numbers yet, and adds Fluffy in at random intervals)
