These are some of the crafts that I did for our ward's Super Saturday.

My own little Curious George

My baby loves the pantry. She tears it apart on a daily basis. She has emptied the fruit snack box and the microwave popcorn box. Ruined countless paper cups, napkins, and styrofoam bowls. She has searched diligently and found a few snacks in there for her to munch on. And my least favorite....she emptied a complete box of 600 plastic spoons! Even after all of her destruction and mess, I still let her play in there. It is the only way I can get dinner made. I have moved a few things up to higher shelves though.....like that box of spoons.

The election....to a three year old....

I was talking to my three year old this morning while I was doing her hair. I told her that we have a new President. She asked who it was. I said, "President Obama". She started laughing and said, "Your'e silly mommy." I guess Obama might sound like a funny word to a three year old.

Earring holder....

M got her ears pierced for her birthday and received some cute earrings. I made her this holder for all of her earrings. They hook on the plastic canvas section in the middle. I had one similar when I was little. It is now full of earrings just waiting to be worn in another 3 weeks when she gets to take her studs out.

Baptism day....

M got baptized this weekend. It was a beautiful day. We sang the song, "When I am Baptized". In the song, there is a verse that goes like this:

I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.

That explains the day. The night before it had rained and the day was clean and beautiful, just like my little girl.

I am so proud of my little girl and these big important decisions she is making in her life.

We had a family get together afterwards. I wish we would have gotten some more pictures of M in her dress. I will have to take some (after I get the stain out....ARGH!!!!) and post them later and tell you all about the dress I made for her. I am a bit posted out for the day though.

Another Halloween has come and gone....

It seems like I just blogged last years halloween pictures, and here it is Halloween again. This year, we had a black cat, a ballerina, a care bear, and a witch. They had a fun time trick or treating. The care bear didn't last too long. It was getting to dark for her! Grandma and Grandpa were here for the evening, so that was fun. I was busy trying to sew a dress in between trick or treaters. It was a hectic day, but a fun one.

School parades...

Mine are the cute black cat and the cute pink ballerina.

This might have to be a new tradition...

This year we decided to make a gingerbread haunted house instead of carving pumpkins. We had a lot of fun, and none of us got slimey and no one cut their fingers. We might have to do this at least every couple of years.

Happy Birthday Hubby...

Yes, we have had a lot of birthdays this month! My husband's birthday was this last week as well. He turned 36. You shouldn't have to do dishes on your birthday, but I wasn't feeling very well that day. We did have a little party for the birthday boy though.

I was a little burned out on birthdays, so my hubby didn't get a cake (or pie which is the usual). I made chocolate chip cookies with toffee pieces instead.

I don't think the baby minded not having cake.

My hubby got a book, DVD, a coupon for a new treadmill (he says, "because he's fat"), and lots of cute cards and pictures from his girls.

Have a good year my love!

Happy Birthday Grandpa and Grandma....

My Grandpa's birthday was this last week. He turned 95! My Grandma's birthday is in a couple weeks and she will be turning 85. My family had a big party to celebrate.
Here are my grandparents and my grandpa's siblings and in-laws.

Aren't they cute?
