Halloween Logs


My neighbor Becca (the one who modeled the apron) made these Halloween decorations for me for my birthday. She used logs found in the surrounding woods (are they big enough to be called  logs? or are they branches? or trunks of small trees? What constitutes a log?) anyway, I had wanted some of my own and she made them for me! The cape and hat are just poster board but I think foamies would be good if not cheapy looking but they'd hold up better in the weather. These would make fun kids projects too.

Ava has pinkeye. The day of her school pictures. What crap luck is that? But they were able to take her photo anyway and although she wouldn't really smile, I think they came out ok. I took these before we left to take the school photos. I'm in love with her outfit. The one in the forest is from earlier this morning at a little lake right down the road. There was a TON of mushrooms and I took pictures of her with them. The mushrooms were the red caps with white spots kind.

How cute! I like the vampire! Did you watch ren and stimpy when you were growing up? I'm singing the log song right now and giggling to myself! The pictures of Ava are so pretty! You know, I've never actually see a red capped mushroom in real life. You'll have to share those pictures too. I can't seethe pink eye, so maybe the school pics will turn out ok.

Wow, she is like a real little person now! She's gorgeous, and so are the ones of them at the pumpkin patch. If they were gonna go with a specific country theme though, WHY SWITZERLAND?! it's the least interesting of all the countries. They could have done Japan or Brazil, or even Australia would have been more fun than freakin Switz. Oh well. They still look cute!
