October's craft night & my little buddy . . .

October's craft night was last night
Liz P.'s hosted the craft and taught us how to make these cute
Jar-O-Lanterns!

What a super fun night it was!

Here is how we made these little guys . . .
-We painted the inside of mason jars with orange oil based enamel paint
-then painted jack o lantern faces on the outside with black oil based enamel paint
(you can hand paint or use stencils for the face)
-the handle is black picture hanging wire

You can either stuff the inside of them with halloween candy, or put a small candle inside.

They all turned out so good! Thanks Liz, for such a great craft night.


Now that Isaac is in Kindergarten,
Seth and I have become morning buddies!
As I was writing this post, Seth just looked too cute sitting on the couch, I had to take a picture.
I love spending one-on-one time with him in the mornings.

Your kids are so cute. I think the last time I saw you and them was when Isaac was 6 months old. Way too long!
