Fall Decorating with Kids- How it Backfired

The girls did a few fall crafts this year in a failed attempt to keep them busy and out of trouble. It was a nice thought. 😉 So, in an effort to keep it real around here, I thought we would do a little exhibit of “Craft & Consequence” Craft: First up, the girls made this lovely glittered fall leaf garland decorating their playhouse.

DIY Fleece Peacock Tutu Costume

Two years ago, our family went trick-or-treating as the Ninja Turtles. Last year, my son decided he was too old (actually he decided that before but we forced him/bribed him with the baby’s share of candy). So, everyone got to choose their own costume again. No theme.
