Decorating Pumpkins

15 Oct

The kids and I had a great time decorating some little pumpkins that they picked out at the store yesterday.  I just pulled out my bag of random, messy decorating things and we went to town!  We stuck everything on with glue dots (which are the best thing ever, by the way) and we have some really cute decorations.

fuzzy balls, sequins, wiggly eyes, and glue dots

Here are some other really great ideas I found:

Who would have thought there were so many ways to decorate pumpkins?

Happy 4th of July!

4 Jul

Aren’t we so blessed to live in this country?  Whatever your opinions (and let me tell you, there are a LOT of opinions in NC right now), we are very lucky to live in a place where they can be freely expressed.

I hope that we will all spend this day reflecting on where our country is heading.  I know I, for  one, will be praying to God for our country today, that we will get our priorities in order and become a nation that fears God once again.  That is a dangerous prayer to pray, but danger is usually effective, isn’t it?

Anyway, on a lighter note!  Check out these cuties!

Charlie was really excited to be using "permanent" paint.  I used some acrylic paint for this, which is also dangerous!

I tried to get them to paint flags on the shirts, but that was a fruitless effort!
