Shadows are Fun!

Aurora has discovered her shadow and loves to play with it! :)

And little Quinn is getting good at holding up his head...maybe... ;)

Pumpkin Carving!

Aurora helped me carve a pumpkin right before Halloween!
Scraping the junk out was hard work!
But we eventually managed to get it all clean. :)
We carved Pacman because I thought it would be cute.
And it was! I especially liked the little ghosts.

Later that week, Wil and I carved our own pumpkins, doing more geeky themes. Wil carved a gate address from Stargate: Atlantis and I carved our family in meeples. :)

As my mom said, her grandkids have no hope of being normal! ;)

Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Wil's mom's birthday is today and since Aurora will never say anything, much less sing, on the phone, I decided to try another method of having Aurora send her birthday wishes. :)

Happy birthday, Mom/Grandma!!

Fall Fun

One rainy fall day, I decided to try out some fun with contact paper. I taped it up to the window, sticky side out, and gave Aurora some translucent tiles to stick to it.
She enjoyed it, but didn't get into like I thought she would. Maybe when she's older...
BUT...I hit on another idea. We went out and collected some fall leaves, ironed them flat, and stuck them on the contact paper.
Then we stuck the leafy contact paper to the window! Now we have beautiful fall leaf "stained glass."
Aurora was thrilled with this project and loves to stand and look at the leaves each day, especially when the morning sunlight is shining full on them. :)

I wrote more about this project on my crafting blog.

Typing with one hand here so this will be short and sweet...

Honestly, did I really need to say anything at all? :)

Fingers and Toes

And what was Aurora doing while I was taking these pictures?

 Doing her best to cause trouble. :)

Aren't they cute?

(I'm all about short blog posts these days--makes typing with one hand less tiring.)
