Rudolph Shirts

So for Halloween we make Boo shirts. This time of year we make Rudolph shirts! Granted we are doing a play date to make these shirts soon but I wanted to get mine done so I have time to help everyone else! But for those of you that want to make these on your own I thought I would post a quick how to!

Ok so this is super easy! You need 2 different color brown paints, black buttons, and either a red bell or a red pom-pom. Also if you have a girl you could add a bow like I did for Grace.

So choose which color you want for the face. Place your child's foot in the paint and then press their foot onto the shirt. You want the toes to face up towards the neck so the nose is the child's heel. Then you want to do the antlers. Place the child's hands into the other color brown and place on both sides of their foot. (This is easier said than done with the little ones!)
I let my shirts dry for a while before I added the nose, eyes, and bow. I personally, sewed the pieces on but you could totally just super glue or hot glue them onto the shirt.
Then finally, I used puffy paint to add their name and year!

Grace is 8 Months and her first Thanksgiving!

So this is super late but Miss Grace turned 8 months old on November 13th! I personally cannot believe that she is already 8 months old! I thought that time went by really fast with Blase but I feel like Grace is just flying through the months! She is now able to sit herself up from a lying position! Yesterday, November 27th she actually made a real attempt at crawling and got a couple good scoots out of it. Part of me is ready for her to crawl but the other part of me is scared for her to crawl because then I will have two mobile children! Plus, if she is crawling that means that all of Blase's toys are fair game! LOL He is not going to do well with that!

This month we also had Blase's Thanksgiving Day Feast at school. He looked so cute in the tie that Mommy made for him! I also made Grace a skirt to go with her Thanksgiving onesie. Blase did good during his performance. Granted he did not sing at all but he still looked awesome! My Dad did not have to work till 2 so he was able to join us and Jason was able to talk to his boss about going in late. So Blase was very lucky to have Me, Grace, Bobo, and Daddy at his show! Although, I forgot to take a picture of all of us!

Thanksgiving was also this month! Everyone one was OFF!! Which in our family is rare! Jason is still training so he was told that he would not be working. Mom and Aunt Terry were able to trade with people at work so they did not have to work. Dad's normal days off are Thursday and Friday. And Michael and Jessica were able to come for the holiday and they are staying for about 10 days! Lots of quality time to spend with them! Blase is loving all the time he is getting with Kalen!

I hope that your family also had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Happy Halloween!

Wow we have changed so much over the last couple of years!! This was our first year actually trick or treating! The last couple of years we went to Downtown Saint Cloud trick or treating and this year we loaded up the car and headed to my Grandmothers to take Blase and Grace around the neighborhood! Well, Blase LOVED it!! He was a doorbell ringing machine! We had a great time!
Here is a look back at some of the past halloween costumes!
