Life lately

A few weeks ago we celebrated Maggie and Molly turning two years old. We picked them up a few new toys and bones. 
We have enjoyed the beautiful sights of fall all around us. 
At school, Easton and his class talked about what they were afraid of and then colored this Goliath. His teacher suggested that we hang it somewhere to help them overcome their fear. We hung Easton's Goliath on this shelf near his bed. 
A few weekends ago Joe and Easton had a boy weekend in Tennessee. I would have loved to have gone, but we have an auction at school that I needed to be at. It was nice to have some quiet time at home by myself. I napped and really enjoyed the rest. I missed Easton and Joe, though! They had a fun time watching Yates play football. They also enjoyed a bonfire. These make the best memories!

Halloween 2015

As Halloween began to approach, Easton found a costume online that he just had to have. He loves dinosaurs and found this awesome pterodactyl costume. Unfortunately when I went to order it, it was sold out. He doesn't usually get upset with things like that, but it just completely broke his heart. We settled on another costume, but about 5 days before Halloween, the pterodactyl costume came back in stock. I had been checking the website daily and I was SO excited! I ordered it and didn't tell him so it was a fun surprise for him.
His Halloween was completely made! A couple in our neighborhood threw a neighborhood Halloween party so we went to that first. They had a hayride that was fun for the kids. We watched It's a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. After that, we went to another neighborhood for trick or treating. It was a fun night.

Moments with Mom & Pajama Day

A few weeks ago our school had a big day. It was Pop Open a Good Book day, Pajama day, and Moments with Mom. Easton was excited to wear his new Star Wars pajamas.
I was so thankful to have a specials teacher come watch my class during Moments with Mom so that I could be with Easton. I enjoyed every minute of my time with him!

Bedroom Makeover

We recently redecorated Easton's bedroom. He went from a jungle animal themed room to a bigger boy room with dinosaur accents. Here is his bedroom from our home in South Carolina. I didn't have any recent pictures of it from our home in Georgia, but the decor was the same. 

Now to our big boy room with dinosaur accents.

We went with a classic comforter from Pottery Barn. I love that it's one that can be used for years to come since it isn't themed. 
I bought the red pillow online at Kohl's to use as an accent pillow. 

I didn't want any of the dinosaur accents to be scary dinosaurs so I loved these dinosaur posters from Hobby Lobby. We had them framed and they are perfect above his bookshelf. We switched tan baskets for red ones on the bottom for another pop of red. The dinosaurs on the shelf are from Wal-Mart.

We needed something above his bed since that is the first thing you see when you enter the room. This world map with dinosaurs was perfect!

Easton is happy with how it turned out!

Pumpkin carving fun

Easton was excited to carve pumpkins this year.
But just like it usually does, the slime just about pushed him over the edge. He gagged and left me to do it all. Ha! 

He was proud of our final result! 

Speaking of pumpkins, Easton had snack for his entire class the day before Halloween so we made pumpkin rice crispy treats. They turned out so cute!
