The "Princess Dress" making is under way.  Very serious business, you know.

Speaking of princesses, remember this free printable from a few years ago?  I think it's pretty appropriate, don't you?

It Finally Happened...

 When I started this whole paper doll idea, the twins were two...just barely two and Norah was a little cherubic one year old.  I laminated the dolls so that they could play with them without eating/ripping appendages off, etc.  
But, their attention spans were lacking (what was I expecting??) so I put everything away and just thought I'd wait 'til the dolls were a bit more age appropriate.  And the day came!  It finally came.  We all played together for over an hour.  I have to admit, it was pretty satisfying watching their little imaginations take flight and listening to them play with and like something I created.

Even Grandma got in on the action.  I can now honestly say that these dolls are appropriate for children ages 3 - 93. That wouldn't be a stretch, right? :)

October Outfit of the Month

If I were a witch upon a big switch
A-riding through the air,
I'd fly all around then drop to the ground
And give you quite a scare! 

The crisp feeling of Fall is in the air here, up in the hills of Sparks, Nevada.  The last few days we have heard the wind whipping against the house.  It is howling right now as I type.  I keep thinking baby Ollie is awake because it sounds a bit like a crying baby. :) 

 Today the girls and I discussed what everyone would like to be for Halloween.  They keep changing their minds.  We have discussed butterflies, Disney characters, mummies, flowers.  But I think over all they want to be princesses. Not a big shocker.  Laurel especially spends most of her day rearranging baby blankets into elaborate princess dresses.  Maisy spends most of her time coloring or drawing princesses. Norah has been the official "Prince" and is usually willing to play the role.  She walks around proudly saying "I'mna Pince!"  Ollie, I'm afraid will have no choice in the matter when he reaches an appropriate age. :)

  The days are getting shorter and the nights a bit longer.  I know there are many who hate for summer to end but for me, it is always welcome!  I LOVE AUTUMN.  Everything about it. The most beautiful autumns in my life have been while doing a church mission in Connecticut and Rhode Island.  The trees looked like they were on fire.  I still have the vivid picture in my mind of riding my bike with the cool autumn air against my rosy cheeks and fallen leaves flying up on each side of me.  My life was full of physical work, service and love.  That, was heaven.

What do you love about fall?  Do you have any fun Halloween costumes planned? Tell me dear readers.
