Happy Labor Day Weekend!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend. Fall is definitely in the air with our mild temperatures and the official start to school on Tuesday.

Friday afternoon I left work early, and we visited Emma's junior high in preparation for her big day. I can't believe how BIG her junior high is. Shhhhh...don't tell her that. I'm so proud of how well she's handling the idea of going to a new school.

I have had a splendid 24 hours crafting and dreaming up some more Halloween ideas to share. While Emma has been soaking up time with her best friend, Penny and Josie joined me in some crafting fun.

I managed to sneak over to Michael's and my favorite thrift store (a pictorial store tour and my latest projects will follow later this week. I'll just say that Michael's has a new Peanuts line this year and I'm really excited.

We're still taking advantage of our fresh vegetables and we made homemade pizza with ingredients from our garden.

The tree house roof is coming together...despite the horrible height and extra long ladders needed to reach the top. I seriously avoid looking outside when Chris is on the ladder. It freaks me out to watch him and our neighbor draped across the ladder and roof. Yikes!!


This cool fall weather certainly puts me in the mood to decorate inside and out!!


Hope you're having a happy Labor Day weekend!



PS. Don't forget about the wonderful fundraiser going on at Karin's blog for Morning Star Orphanage. They are close to their goal of selling handmade doll blankets/pillows to raise funds for baby Joy's corrective heart surgery.

Sounds like a great weekend full of everything you love (minus your husband on that crazy ladder). I am hoping to bust out the fall decorations next weekend. Have a great week!
