This year, Josie decided she wanted to have a Dr. Seuss Lorax pumpkin for her school pumpkin patch.
I tried to find faux yellow fur for his mustache and eyebrows, but ended up hot-gluing fuzzy yellow yarn onto felt. His nose is an orange pom pom.
A tissue paper blossom becomes the top of the Truffula tree. Happy soon-to-be Halloween!
PS. Continued prayers for those in the Sandy's path. May you be safe and sound from the storm.
A few ingredients to concocting a fun Halloween party Kenward-style!
3 face painters/tattoo artists
We asked my college niece to bring some of her college friends to help with the face painting and Halloween tattoos at this year's party. We kept the girls busy all night long.

. Chris came as this year's MLB Triple Crown Winner...Miguel Cabrera
It was a great party with over 100+ guests. I was so busy playing hostess that I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I have done in years past. Don't worry though. Halloween continues with Chris's 15+ carved pumpkins on my next post!
In 2008, we traveled to China to adopt a toddler who needed
heart surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot and hand surgery to remove an extra thumb. I'm always happy to share our experience with SN adoption. When I'm not at work, you might find me at an thrift/antique store or estate sale. I also love to sneak in a craft project and decorate our multiple dollhouses with my girls.
Come play with me!

In 2008, we went to the Jiangxi Province to adopt a little girl who needed open-heart surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot and hand surgery to remove an extra thumb. I'm always happy to share our experience with a SN adoption with others.
When I'm home from work, I love to sneak in a weekly craft project or a trip to my favorite antique/thrift stores. Come play with me!
