There was frost on the windshields this morning. That's my cue to start with the Christmas goodness! Red and green and white are my favorite colors all year long, so I'm always happy to commence with the yuletide merriment.
You can see the first of the snowpeople, pine trees, and Kris Kringles here.
Who says 2-headed cats aren't jolly?
More presently, Halloween is right around the corner.
I'm sad to say that my kids have decided they're too old for trick-or-treating. Making costumes with them has always been a favorite October activity. So I've had to content myself with photos of Halloween costumes past. In honor of the new Spike Jonze movie coming out soon (can't wait!) I thought I'd share one of our favorite creations.
That's my eldest, round about the 2nd grade, sporting her favorite monster attire. Of course, we couldn't stop there; she wanted an appropriate backdrop as well. We made that using rolls of colored paper from her school, Elmer's glue, and crayons. It became an easy and inexpensive mural that graced the wall of her room for many years.
Let the wild rumpus start!
