Etc, etc, etc....and a Circle Bookcase

I have all kinds of info to pack into this post - hopefully, it's interesting enough to keep your attention for a couple minutes.

First - a couple promised Halloween photos...we were running late, so my picture taking was a mess...

















Notice Max's too-small costume?  Finally on Halloween-eve, we decided on a dog as a perfect costume for him, as he spends about 25% of his waking hours acting like he is a dog.  When this epiphany struck us, we happened to be on the way to a retail location that will remain nameless.  I didn't have time to try to make a no-sew dog costume, so we found this one in size 3T-4T, up to 41lbs - perfect for my large 2 year old.
The neck didn't snap, the head was too small, the legs too short...but he tried it on for the first time 40 minutes AFTER trick or treating started.
As for Emme - I added a pink flower to her costume (max's from last year that he wore for maybe 15 minutes)


My husband "dressed up" as a ghost ("don't we have any white sheets?") and Max following "suit" as always (daddy is his hero!)... for our attempt at a Halloween photo-shoot.


There he is...


SECOND - My Circle Bookcase-
  
Before

 
Max "helping"
  
After - Sorry for the boring pictures...I didn't have the energy to stage them. 


A little "outside the box" for me...



Okay...and Finally....





My Emerson Seed Co project was featured by the lovely Kindra at At Home With K...
 





  
If you haven't visited Kindra's blog - or linked up to her Terrific Under Ten Tuesday Party (link below) - I highly reccomend doing both!  Kindra's party is for projects that cost under $10.00....so obviously, thrifty fun to be had by all!


I told you I've been busy....My toddlers are rioting for juice...I'm out.
