All the Buzz

 The 2010 Jones' kids Halloween Costumes
Josie would like me to inform you that she was actually a "Pink Ballerina Fairy," and NOT a "Pink Fairy Princess" for Halloween.  OOPS.
I want to tell you that I have the AWESOMEST husband in the world! 
Because I was sick, Michael sewed these pink fairy wings for Josie.  
Yes!  He is the 

A few hours before we went "Trunk or Treating" Noah had it in his mind that he could enjoy the fruits of his sister's labor (indulge in all their candy!). This is the last minuet costume he came up with when his loving parents set him straight!

Isn't Emilie  beeeee-utiful! 

Today the girls painted a thankful tree on the sliding glass window. They also cut various fall colored leaves from construction paper.
Each day of November we will write what we are thankful for on the leaves, then add our leaves to the tree.  Though the leaves outside are falling our tree inside will be
growing with thankfulness 
(see our December tree here).

Their costumes turned out fabulous. That beehive was amazing! I love all 3 of them. And the Thankful tree is such a great idea. What kind of paints do you use on your window? I think this would be a fun idea to do with my boys.
