fun-filled friday......halloween is underway!

one of our MANY holiday traditions is
decorating cookies.....
and although asher may occasionally eat a
sugar cookie,
he won't touch one with frosting on it.....

but we do it anyway....
we always have such a great time too!

and the end result is always SCRUMPTOUS!

he'll even jump right in to make some
at a school party....still NOT eating it, of course!

and he's finally embracing the art of crafting!

and at this time of year,
who could resist cutting a few holes in an
old sheet,
just to scare everyone in the house, LOL!

wordless wednesday....."TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!"

ok, so this isn't going to be totally wordless,
since these adorable pumpkins
warrant an explanation....
this has been one of our many
since asher was born...
every year i paint him a pumpkin
to match his costume...
the big one is mine,
and the little one is a quickie
attempt to copy it by asher and his na-na.

sunday citar....'never turn your back'....

a famous quote from an adorable movie,

"kindergarten cop"

goes something like this.....

"kindergarten is like the ocean,

you NEVER want to turn your back on it"....


"You would attain to the divine perfection,

and yet not turn your back upon the world."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

we have MANY, MANY holiday traditions in our home...

whenever they make a 'build-a-cookie house' for
a holiday....
this is one of asher's very FAVORITE things to do ...

but somehow i ususally end up wearing
more frosting than he does....

and he's always SOOOO proud
of his work when he's done!

sunday citar.....artistry!

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul,

and paints his own nature into his pictures.”

Henry Ward Beecher

"It is nature who makes our artists for us,

though it may be Art who taught them

their right mode of expression."

Oscar Wilde
