I bought these fun spooky hands by Joe Spencer a few years ago and the kids think their great. I love trying to come up with a new way to display them every year! I noticed that some of our trees are starting to turn colors so with August winding down I think it's time to start planning for cooler temps soon...
Oh and our cat Cindy is doing so much better. But we have to give her an antibiotic and a steroid pill twice a day! I told Mario maybe we should check into the pet insurance they offer at his work, Ha! Have a good week everyone and enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

I have had this antique chair for a few years now with the intent of always reupholstering it but just never did. But now I have the fabric. I bought this muted red and amber toile at Wal-Mart on sale for $3.00 a yard! I think it looks nice with the chair coloring. I want to wait and find some trim before we put it all together.
Our Wal-Mart is closing its fabric department so all the fabric is 50% off! So I got this pink tulle fabric for cheap around .45 cents a yard to make Emma's bed skirt with for her bed. And a new frame for her room. I can't wait to put it all together.

Every summer on Sunday evenings we get to listen to beautiful music from a local orchestra in the park that is located right behind our house. We can literally hear the music in our backyard. The kids as you can see love to dance and be crazy so we really enjoy it! We really like our old neighborhood and this is the oldest park in our city so it's so relaxing with all the old trees. I know we are creating lots of fun memories for Ethan and Emma to remember when they talk about their childhood together someday and that to me is what it's all about! :) Amy
Unfortunately we had a storm with very strong winds a few nights ago (Ethan is standing in front of it) and it literally pulled this tree out of the ground in the park! That is the back of our garage, we haven't painted it yet so it's not our dark grey or put the new roof on but we are on #50 of our list of 300 things we still need to do to our old home so we're getting closer but I'll save that for another post! :) We were lucky the tree decided to head east and not west. Ethan and Emma thought it was pretty neat to see a tree on the ground.

We have 7 pumpkins growing! We are having so much fun with it! Our French Heirloom Cinderella pumpkins are doing the best so far. The Jack-Be-Little vines have 2 pumpkins growing. The vines from the pumpkins have taken over our garden. We plan on having a Harvest party this fall and I'm hoping we will have plenty of pumpkins. This is our first time to try to grow anything! So Mario and I are very excited that we are having such a great success... They are still small but hopefully they will be ready by the end of Sept. :)
