Projects and Pumpkins

With all of these creative juices flowing but so far nothing for Keaton I decided to make him a shirt. I saw this cute little owl and just had to try to create one myself out of some boy fabrics. I also got a steal of a deal off eBay for a bunch of vintage buttons! Keaton LOVED helping me sort through them all and look at each one. He loves his owl and loves that there are buttons on it for the eyes.
I must say that I love the way it turned out. I appliqued each piece on and then stitched around them also.
In about a half hour I whipped out Sissy another skirt also. I just love this free pattern from Oliver & S. It fits so cute and it is SO easy. It took me longer to sew buttons along them hem than to make the skirt start to finish! And once again more of my vintage buttons. The skirt is a soft corduroy perfect for winter. I still have to finish the shirt that will go with the skirt. I will post it when it is done.
Tonight we tackled carving our pumpkins. Keaton wouldn't even try to touch the insides of them but yet he took a bite of it when we weren't watching! He was quite fascinated by the entire process and loves the results.
It has become quite the tradition with Uncle Todd and Auntie Krystal and Uncle Tom and Auntie Shanna to get together each year.
These are Daddy and Mommy's pumpkins. Keaton choose the owl and I love the way it turned out. Of course the fly is Daddy's masterpiece!
The whole group of finished pumpkins:
Todd, Daddy, Mommy, Auntie Shanna for Sissy, Krystal, and Daddy for Bug.
Keaton with our family of pumpkins.
The official candle blower! He has had some practice now so he is great for the job.
We have a fun week this week with a costume party, a birthday party, and a baby shower!

I seriously LOVE Keaton's shirt and Tiana's new skirt. They both turned out so cute! And your pumpkins are totally enviable! We'll see you tomorrow! Are you dressing up??
