Fall Owl Wreath

Now that the kids are back to school and I have a little time to do a project here and there I decide to do one of my favorite things......decorate a wreath! I Love going to the craft store and picking up some cute things to put together. It's a simple and satisfying project.  Since fall is right around the corner I decided to make this....



When I saw this little cutie I knew I had to find something to do with him! 
 Isn't he sweet?!?!?



I also made this itsy bitsy wreath.  The moss came right form my back yard.  

 What I like most about these wreaths are that they can be left up until the end of November! 
Hoot hoot!   
I do plan to make a few more to share with family since they were so fun to make!

Have a GREAT day!



Come party here every Thursday!

I Want To Remember.......

I want to remember that Audrey decided to play an instrument. She picked a trumpet but I asked her to play the flute instead since I already owned one from when I attempted to play at her age. She agreed without hesitation. I hope she succeeds.

I want to remember that Ethan is hooked on the show Storage Wars.  He has a love for collectibles and   a good find.  He's only 11!  We can thank his grandfather for this trait!  He started taking him antiquing at a very early age.

I want to remember how much I enjoy our 15 year old cat Susie.  I love the way she meows when we talk to her and how she comes when we call.

I want to remember how Ethan let his sister have the last bowl of the Lucky Charms for breakfast this morning (this is rare)..


I want to remember the how much I love this weather.....warm sunny days to cool crisp nights for easy sleeping.


I want to remember how nervous my Ethan was to start 6th grade. Changing classrooms along with more homework. He's so worried that he won't continue to get A's and B's.  I know he will!

I want to remember what it feels like to feel good......I foresee a cold in my near future.

I want to remember that Audrey still loves me to read to her even though she can read wonderfully herself.

I want to remember that it's only a stage that Ethan is going through when he acts totally goofy or gets  mouth.  Please tell me it will pass otherwise I may go nuts!

Jack and my Ethan

I want to remember that E&A love me to make their lunch for school..  They hate school lunches.  My lunches are overall healthy and they never complain. 


This has been a fun and easy way to document life.  Check out Ali Edwards
