Pumpkin Contest

The PTO at my kids elementary school sponsors a pumpkin contest every year. The kids were excited to be a part of it this year. Jason helped James come up with a bloody skull.

I made the skirt/dress for Paige's Pumpkin Leia. I also helped with the hair (my fingers have all the burns from hot glue to prove it). It turned out great and she won 2nd place for K-3rd grade in the "Cartoon Look Alike" category. I'm so proud of my little blooming crafter in the making.

cute kids (aka sneak peek)

In my last post - I know I went on and on about my friend Jenna who took pictures for my class. Well, I had her come back and take school pictures of my kids. These are a few she sent me early so I could do a project for church. Okay, so... technically Abbey is more of a mascot then a student in preschool, but Jenna obliged me... Look what she was able to capture.

I know what your thinking, "yeah. Maren we know she was a hospital mix up, this is further evidence that your real child is being raised in a trailer court in Apache Junction."

My life long bff's have been my sisters, I love that these two adore each other despite their age difference they are amazed and delighted by each other. If you need an amazing photographer, I got you covered, just give me a call and I'll hook you up.

*I'll be posting more in the next few weeks. If you want me to email these to you let me know, this is a downgraded format so it uploaded quickly, printing quality might not be that great. I will email you a great copy if you want to print them out.
