More Tutu Fun!

Made Mini Fox a new kind of tutu. We decided to change her costume, from my original idea so I got to make a new tutu. I didn't make a tutorial because I wasn't sure if it was going to work. But if I do it again, I'll definitely make a tutorial and it will be better, since this one didn't turn out perfect, and I know how I can make it better. But if are just itching to make a tutu, then I sort of followed this and this.

It came out almost perfect, I won't tell you the imperfections, cause it still works, and I'm sure she's only going to wear this why spoil the fun?

This was going to be her costume:
My little pumpkin
And then I just decided to have fun with the tutu, since it was already made

Happy Halloween. Stay safe, and I'll post what our family theme is tomorrow! So come back and see what I used that red tutu for :)

Halloween Project

You know I had to do something, I can't remember where I saw this, so I can't give anyone person credit. But here's our version, simple easy to do. We did 6 of them in about 10 minutes. It only took 10 minutes because Baby Fox kept wanting different colored feet, and we'd have to wipe off the last color to put the new color on.

Happy Halloween!

Tutu Fun

Remember the tutu I made? If you forgot, it looked like this:

I told you that it was part of Mini Fox's Halloween costume, but last minute, we decided to change her costume, but I couldn't let this perfectly cute tutu go to waste, so I did what anyone else would do, cute photo shoot with my girl!

So her original Halloween costume idea: A cute little pumpkin!

Big Brother wanted in on the action, his hat was from my brother and sister-in-law, it doesn't quite fit Mini Fox, so naturally I put it on Baby Fox

Those cheeks...I die!
 Brother and SIL also sent this onesie for Mini Fox, of course the tutu went perfect with this outfit too, so...another photo shoot!

Nana bought the cute headband and shoes

Now you'll just want to wait for her actually Halloween costume, I know you can't wait.

Hint: Mr. wanted a family theme, like the last two years (1 and 2), that's why we changed Mini Fox's costume

Swiss Cheese House

Hey sorry I've been MIA lately. The simple slab leak turned into a complete re-plumbing job. This is how my house currently looked last week:

The plumbers came and just threw everything into one room, literally

I about had a heart attack when I saw all of these holes in my walls and ceilings. The amount of dust and dry wall floating around is insane, I might go insane trying to clean it all up.  On a positive note, our water gets hot mega fast.

Life Lately

Everyday I want to blog, and then the seconds, minutes, hours just wiz by me and suddenly it's dark, we're eating dinner and trying not to fall asleep in the meantime. We're in full blown wow, I don't remember having a newborn being this hard phase. Hopefully we're in the home stretch, but as of now that looks unlikely.

We're still alive and well, so no worries, I am thinking of you guys and hoping to get back to your regularly schedule programming soon. Here's a picture of my Mini Fox, when she finally decides to fall asleep, which during the day is few and far between.

Last night I went to my parents for dinner, Mr. decided to stay home since little miss was let's just say fussy most of the day, and I was out bonding with Baby Fox, so I decided he deserved a break. But when I got home I found this:


it doesn't look like much, but these two tables were a mess when I left, he cleaned up, put away the laundry and just made things look nice. It was so refreshing to come home to a straightened up house.

In other news, we have a leak. It started on Friday night, and we've had our water turned off since then, yep, 3 days...we turn it one once or twice a day to refresh water buckets and stuff, but for the most part it's off. We're hoping to get it fixed sometime this week, but it's a slab leak, so it's a major job. It feels like we're camping but worse because we have real beds and stuff, but now water. Strange how we take for granted the simple things in life, like fresh water.

I am in the process of making Mimi Fox's Halloween costume:

I still have some parts to buy, I'll keep you posted. Have a good week!!

Linking up with Faith, Sarah and Megan

Halloween Wreath

Happy Friday!

Okay so everyday for me is Friday, but for those of you who can remember what day of the week it is, hope you have a great weekend planned. I don't have much to post, but I thought that I would re-post and remind everyone decorating for Halloween to check out my awesome Monster Wreath Tutorial. Super easy, and fun for the door too!

P.S. If you want to just buy a 6" spool of the tulle, instead of cutting it yourself, I found a good website that sells it, go there, it's only $2.95 for 25 yards, deal and a half I'm telling ya!
