Hunting Themed Baby Shower {The Invitation}


I'm planning a baby shower for a couple at our church. They are both avid hunters and want to celebrate the anticipated arrival of their baby boy with a Hunting Themed Baby Shower. Never having spent even one second in a deer stand. And because I've never aimed a gun at an animal, I was a bit concerned about being inspired. There just isn't much on the internet in the way of Hunting Themed Baby showers (believe me, I've looked). So, I'm crossing my fingers this invitation design is a good mix of hunting lovers meets bundle of joy. What's not cute about baby onesies camo and hunter orange strung on a line in a pine forest?

Hello Bee, Hello Me {Adalyn's First Halloween}

1 comment:
Adalyn's favorite book is "Hello Bee, Hello Me" so I thought it would be fun to dress her up as a yellow bumble bee for Halloween.  I just sewed a strip of yellow felt around the middle of a black, long sleeve t-shirt, added elastic to the bottom and stuffed her shirt with cloth diapers. Hot glued the wings on and made a headband out of felt, yellow pom poms and elastic. Black leggings and yellow bloomers completed the look. Comfortable and cute! The glow of the sunset was beautiful and we had fun taking pictures of Adalyn and her best friend Miranda.


A Super Hero Costume for Marin


Marin's favorite movie is The Incredibles, so when I offered her the choice of a superhero costume or a mermaid costume, she quickly chose superhero. The cape is a modified version of this free pattern from And the mask was a free template from Both with my own modifications and touches to personalize this for Marin. I created a belt as well, and the only picture of it is the last one, and it's just a peek. Ah well.

Pumpkin Carving Party 2010 {aka PCP '10}

No comments:

My family is a hoot and this year they were ALL at the 2010 Pumpkin Carving Party. All 14 of us! So, naturally we had to take a family picture and it's tradition that after the "formal posed" photo we do a crazy shot. Always entertaining! We served Taco Soup and Boudin and guests brought pies! Yum. Steven is a great cook and the soup was a tasty hit.

And the pinata for this year was a slice of pumpkin pie. Sadly this is the best photo I have of this little beauty. And if you read my post about past PCP pinatas, you'll notice I did NOT take step by step photos of my process. Maybe next year.

The outdoor showing of "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" was a BIG hit with the guests (adults and kids alike)!

Did I mention that my best friend flew in from Virginia and brought her adorable pumpkin head, baby M, with her? Aren't the matching pumpkin caps too cute for words.
Another successful party. Onward to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hello cooler weather and family time!
