What a Hoot

We made this little guy for a sweet friend's baby shower. And now I want to make the kids each one for Christmas...and then maybe start selling them in the shop. He was so much fun to make and super easy too. And a really good use for scrap fabric.

Hope everyone's having a fun, sugar filled weekend. I'll give you a hint about what the kids are going to be dressed as for our church party tomorrow night...characters from a Grimm's fairytale. I'm kind of excited about it. Now we just have to finish their costumes!


Fun at the Fair

We went to the Alabama National Fair a few nights ago. It was the kids' first time going to a fair, and they had so much fun! We all rode the ferris wheel together and some other rides, watched a horse and a wolf show, walked through the petting zoo, and watched the circus performance-which was great! This fair was the best one I've ever been to. I was very impressed.

Nick and I had fun reminiscing about going to the fair when we were kids, and it's fun that we got to experience it with our own children!
