For some reason life just kinda spiraled out of control after my last post in October, its now January - almost February and I am just now getting a chance to get all my thoughts together. So there was lots of crafting over the last 3 months, and even more chaos! I will post a few highlights of the months, this post will be:
October - we did Boo at the (Pueblo) Zoo for Halloween. Aleric was of course a zombie. He hated wearing face paint so it was the only time we dressed him up, we don't do trick-or-treating yet so we didn't need to torture him again on Halloween with more face paint. Hopefully next year he will be better with the makeup.
We also did some home renovations with the help of my brother, when we moved into this house we paid for a home inspector, well apparently we DID NOT get our money's worth. Every single thing that could go wrong has since the day we moved in. Well anywhere there was a HUGE hole in front of the front door, so luckily my brother came over and helped us put in a new door frame and sealed it up real nice, and replaced the floor boards after ripping up moldy carpet. Then we put down some really nice hardwood floor that a friend of ours brought that he had leftover from a job he worked on. It looks 500% better, and when it was done we took turns jumping up and down where the hole was!
And it looks like we did this just in time because 3 days later.. First snow of the season!!!! I love the first snow, im not sure why but I just love it so I always take a picture of it.
Aleric was slightly confused with it, and the chickens and ducks and goose had no freaking clue what it was, they kept trying to jump to get away from it. So CUTE they are.
Later in the day Aleric went outside with me to help "clean" the snow off the back fence and collect eggs.
And then I started what seemed to be a never ending sewing fest that lasted the next 2 months. I made a coaster for a gift. It was very well received!
And finally the month ended with Halloween! We carved one of our 4 or 5 pumpkins, its been a while but I think we had 5 to begin with - well 7 if you include the 2 tiny ones we got for Aleric that died after he repeatedly stabbed them with a screwdriver. He was scared of the pumpkin for a bit and kept blowing out the candle from inside it, in the end we had to put a flashlight inside.
