A Tricky Treat

I whipped this up in about an hour yesterday, so I thought I'd share, and maybe it would get your brain going too!
Have you heard of Michael Mead? Well, he's got a cool crafty magazine. I found this FREE DOWNLOAD yesterday.
Then, I got this 6 1/2" wooden circle and some black and white polka dot ribbon at Hobby Lobby. (all whole rolls of ribbon are 50% off right now!) Posted by Picasa
Then a little crepe paper and some tacky glue, and I was off. It went pretty fast, just dotting and bending the paper and gluing.
The ribbon, being a little thicker, was trickier. I was wishing I had ironed it first, because I had to use Scotch tape to hold it down while the glue dried. BUT, I was happy with the "ribbon candy" effect afterward. So, that was it! And I glued my little pumpkin man on, and made a hanger on the back with some ribbon and glue!
He's pretty cute! And already up on my wall!

Goodbye, Summer!

Ah, the last hurrah of the summer! A weenie roast at Grandma and Grandpa Wise's!

So much fun, lots of cousins! And, I think kids are more likely to eat something when they have cooked it themselves. Ha!

We had a wonderful time, said goodbye to summer, said goodbye to Grandpa and Grandma's wonderful cherry tree, (the huge, lovely thing has been ravaged by woodpeckers and bugs) oh all the time the kids have spent in that tree! Where will we hang the pinata at Easter???

But, we are looking forward to fall!

Cousin Elizabeth

Greg, Harper, and Sylvia in the swing.

Point proven!!! Benjamin is a VERY picky eater! And he was eating!

Everybody loves some baby Hazel!!! Posted by Picasa

Goodbye summer! You were good to us this year!
