My Sweet Little David!

Today Trey has a Harvest Party at school!

He was told to dress up like his favorite Bible character. Well whenever he found out about it (cough, cough 2 or 3 weeks ago), he automatically said he wanted to be David! He has loved that story since he was about 2 watching Dave and the Giant Pickle! LOL...So of course I started to brainstorm about what I needed to buy, etc. Well then the crazy week hit last week and it totally slipped my mind...Oops...!

So yesterday I was all over Columbus looking for a shepherd costume, which there were none! So I thought Oh I can make shouldn't be too hard, right....I mean I knit so I can follow patterns pretty well and can visualize the project when its in pieces. HA!

Thank goodness for parents!! My poor sick mother came over and helped me construct the gown and robe and my step dad made the coolest sling shot ever! Sigh but it was a great learning experience. Here are some things that I learned!

1. I am too ambitious! lol..but I have lifesavers for parents!

2. Don't sew your mother's finger with a sewing machine! Oops...sorry mom!

3. Burlap sheds and really hurts whenever it gets in your eye!

4. I think I might take up sewing its pretty fun!

5. Little boys don't care if the costume is "perfect". All they care about is the sling shot!

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!!
Blessings and Love!

Just a Little Shout Out!

”ediexmasbutton” height=

Just thought I would let you crafty/creative ladies out there know about a blog series you need to follow! What it is is 12 different handmade crafts that make awesome gifts! I am all for creativity, but lets be honest some things that you find when searching for "homemade" gift ideas are just not something you would want to give....LOL sorry if that's too blunt but I am sure you know what I am talking about! But everything she posted last year I really truly liked and would definitely give or would make for myself ;). I also absolutely adored the creativity and simplicity of some of the things that she posted too! So it starts November 1st and goes through the 12th so go to lifeingrace if you would like to follow!
Blessings and Love!!

It is going to be awesome this year. If you are in the area, you will have to stop by and check it out!! So any who, we will be submerged in practices all this week, and if I don't plan ahead we will drown in stress! So my crock pot is going to be my best friend this next! So I will be trying some new recipes and pulling out some old favorites.

Dinner out & Family Movie Night!

Tuesday- Ham Sandwiches and Cheesy Broccoli & Potato Soup*(new recipe to come)
