Savanah's First pumpkin.

Monday for FHE we took Savanah and my sisters to the pumpkin patch. We wanted to go earlier so that it wouldn't be so busy. It was perfect. We went to the Del Mar Pumpkin station. Lot's of pumpkins and a fun environment! Seriously it's been so fun having a kid to do things with. When it was just me and Bruce, we never really got into the holidays. For some reason having a child really makes you want to celebrate them. It was a lot of fun, we are going to carve them for our next FHE. So stay tuned.=)

These are the pumpkins we ended up with.

We put Savanah in this pile of pupkins to chose which ever one she wanted.

This was the one she piked. Just her size.

Savanah with Daddy.

She LOVES pulling herself up onto things.

Today we will be taking pictures of her in her costume. Can't wait!!

DIY: No Sew Headband.

Do you ever feel like making something simple but DON'T feel like getting the sewing machine out to make it?? I felt that way last week when I wanted to make Savanah a headband to match one of her outfits. SO the result was getting out the glue gun and glueing away!!

This was the end result. I though it turned out just as good and it took me only 5 mins to make.=) Thats my kind of project.=)

To make this I just used some scrap material I had from some old jeans. I made my strip pretty thick, but you can make yours smaller. Then I glued down each side by folding the fabric over some glue. When you are are done just get a piece of elastic and connect the two ends together. Decorate with bows or flowers. I made this flower using this tutorial.
It was super easy! I'll be making more of these. It holds really well too, Savanah has worn this headband almost every day and it still loos good.=)

Good night blogging friends!
