Sick Halloween Bat

Lately I've been feeling sick. The kind where my whole body just aches, I'm really tired, cranky, and I can't concentrate on anything (probably cause of the tired part).

I have so much to do but I can't seem to get anything done. The boys have a doctors appointment today to get their flu vaccines. Something that's very important for Dylan since he's allergic to ibuprofen and fevers can be a very serious thing for him. But since I'm feeling so crummy I keep thinking of calling and canceling. But of course I wont.

With Halloween coming up I've had so many craft ideas to do with the boys. I even went as far as to buy everything we'll need to do these crafts. We finally got something done! A banner with bats! It took a few days to get done. I really wanted to let Aidan help instead of just watching.

He was so proud when we finally hung it up on the stairs. Of course now that its been there for a day or two I'm already looking around to where we can move it. It just doesn't look right on the stairs.

The weather here has been insanely hot these past few days. Yesterday it was 113 in LA! How can it be so hot in the fall!? Oh yeah that's right. This is southern California....its hot all year long. If it wasn't for my family all living around here I don't think I'd stay another year.

The crafts I had planned for Aidan and I will have to be put on hold until we can stand to actually be outside during daylight hours. Too bad because I was getting pretty excited about what we were going to be doing next :)

This weekend is craft camp! I have no idea what I'm going to be working on but just the thought of hanging out with all these other crafters is making me excited. I love seeing what other people are working on. Which reminds me I need to go shopping for little gifts. And I have an auction item to get done in the next few days...even if I don't know what that item will be lol

And for some reason I can't delete this extra photo at the bottom! So enjoy seeing Aidan's happy face again ;)

Practice Scarf

I started a scarf meant for a preschool aged child. Love the colors, love the yarn. But when I held it up to Aidan I realized that it was way too thick. Drives me crazy that I'm more then half way done and I realize the mistake. Oh well....he'll just have to wear it no matter what. Lesson learned :P

Baby Shoes

Today was full of swimming for the boys. We were a little sad to realize that the end of summer is near. The days are still nice and warm but the weather is dropping a lot at night. Pool isn't keeping its temp. Was a chilly 81 degrees today. Poor Dylan didn't want to put more then his feet in most of the day. Haha :) Aidan didn't mind the cold water at all! He had fun jumping and splashing around.
This weekend my mom has been working on these cute felt shoes! I love them. They should be listed on Etsy very soon!

I've been making little shoes out of cotton fabric :) Wish I could see them on little baby feet! They'll also be on Etsy before the end of the week.
