I won't be in town when Ava turns five so I am posting her birthday announcement a week early. We have a date after I get back to go to the American Girl store. All of my granddaughters get an American Girl doll from Grandpa and Grandma when they turn five. After she chooses her doll then she and her mom and I enjoy a lunch in the American Girl Cafe. What a treat for me!!!
I wanted a Halloween wreath for our front door. I had made a ribbon wreath for Amy for St. Patrick's day so I decided that I could use the same idea for my wreath. I was at Taipan and saw a cute sign that I wanted to incorporate and then found some pumpkins that I was able to draw faces on and that finished off my wreath. I thought it turned out really cute. When I get back from Fargo I will be decorating for Halloween and putting in my third annual pumpkin patch in the front yard. I can't wait!
I have wanted to put a Back to School wreath on our front door but didn't see anything on Pinterest that I wanted. I had an idea of my own and so I tried it out and this was the result. I think it turned out really cute and was actually so simple to do.
Thanks to my wonderful and very capable grandson I have a freshly painted front door. I love how clean and bright it looks. Between Scott, Perry, and me sanding, painting three new coats of white paint the door looks brand new. I am excited to mark this off of my to do list.
