Avonleigh really wanted her "princess crown" for school today.
She was too sweet to resist!

We added delicate little flowers (thank you, Cherie!) to finish off the look.

This is really easy to do (Kate)! I'll show you some time!

We are SO looking forward to THIS...have an enlightening weekend.

Painting, Politics and Punting...OH MY!

It was a craft day.

We really needed to beef up on our Halloween decorations and the kids had a blast doing so!
This was the evening project after dinner

The girls got a head start and worked on theirs most of the afternoon before Chrisser got home from school (yes, they stripped down to their undies).

Matching pumpkin noses!

Payton getting in on the action (and giving the kitchen table a makeover in the process)

A small sampling of some of their work: ghosts and pumpkins

Chrisser painting another ghost

This is what I was trying to listen to...

This is what we watched after the kids went to bed.

Oregon State vs Utah Utes (15th ranked)

we had 'em most of the game...

And then this.

It was a sad day in Beaver Nation :o(

Pretty as a Princess

On Wednesday night we had a fun movie night (at home) and I did the girls' hair.
Avonleigh wanted a "princess crown" around her head. This is something my mom used to do on my hair. I've never done it on Avonleigh (super fine hair!), but it sure looked beautiful (for the whole 2.5 minutes that it stayed in).

And then she got out my blush and started applying liberally ;o)

I love this shot!

And Peanut wanted two French braids - so elegant!
