Thoughts For Friday: 9.12.14

Happy Friday!

That one just never gets old.

I am so ready for the weekend guys. It seems like it should be a pretty great one too!
Here are this weeks Friday Five:

{ONE} First Day of Co-op

We had our first day of co-op last week. 

Marissa was less than impressed with her green shirt. Shirt colors are assigned by grades and all of the first graders are wearing hunter green. Sorry little diva, green isn't all that bad. 

Wouldn't you know the ONE time Emily looks at the camera and gives me a fabulous smile her sister isn't looking. I guess that is just how it goes though.

It was so great to be back at co-op. It definitely feels like school is officially in full swing now

{TWO} Pumpkins, Cobwebs and More

In case you missed it, I made some pallet pumpkins this weekend. Almost a week later and I love them even more than the day I we made them. 

This project along with some encouragement from you guys has caused my wheels to start churning. I think there is probably smoke coming out my ears. I have SO many ideas that I would LOVE to try and pull off.

Speaking of fall decor

I mean it's a totally valid point, right?!

Okay, I don't exactly carry this out inside the house. But the front porch.... I just let it go from now until after November 1st.

{THREE} Her First Bible

Russ and I had talked and decided it was time to graduate this little lady from her storybook bible into a "big girl" one. I seriously could have cried. It was such a special, memorable moment. Once again I was left saying "How did she get this big?"

We chose the Children's ESV Bible. It is just like an adult bible but it has some color illustrations in it and a few additional resources.

{FOUR} I Really Want To Knit Something

Let's just say that it is pretty ridiculous but not nearly as bad as some people I know, you know who you are.

I tend to be a seasonal hobbyist Spring and summer I am all about gardening and canning. The fall and winter gives me urges to knit. Maybe I will work on finishing up that sweater that I started last spring...

{FIVE} Halloween Costumes

The time of year is once again here where we start brain storming costume ideas. And by we I mean Marissa and I. Emily has already decided to be Minnie Mouse... again. Almost three years of loving Minnie and she is still going strong.

I will have to re-invent her Minnie costume. I don't want it to be exactly the same as last years. I am thinking a traditional red and white Minnie may due the trick.

As for Marissa, here are some ideas that she has mentioned to me.

A Butterfly
Elsa (I vetoed this one already)
Sofia The First
Zarena The Pirate Fairy
Hello Kitty
A Bunny

It seems like we have some research and Pinterest looking to do.

Do you already have Halloween costumes picked out?

I hope you have a fabulously wonderful weekend, see you on Monday!
