~ October Blog Party Update ~

It's time for an update on the 2nd week of the October Blog Party .........................

October 8th ~ I posted my chili beans & jalapeno cornbread recipes and got the Happy Harvest place mats out , this is a great meal for those chilly October nights. I also spent time saving seeds for next years garden.

October 9th ~ The grand kids and I went outside and watched the leaves fall from the trees , we also attempted do a leaf rubbing when we came inside. That didn't go over so well , they just didn't understand the concept. Little Froggy was more interested in getting his taped leaf off the paper (LOL).

October 10th ~ Little Froggy and I went for a walk and collected some leaves , we made a collage with them. He loved painting the glue on the leaves , so this project turned out well. Saturday night , the boys spent the night and we watched a Little Bear movie called " Little Goblin ".

October 11th ~ We went to the Shakori Hills Fall Festival and enjoyed the day.

October 12th ~ I painted a saying on the pumpkin and added a raffia bow , before hanging it on the front door , also changed my background on my computer to a Fall scene.

October 13th ~ I made Mrs.B's cinnamon pancake mix , we had cinnamon pancakes with homemade applesauce for breakfast. They were delicious , you may want to popover to ~ ~ and check-out her recipes , especially the cinnamon pancake mix.

October 14th ~ I had all 3 of the younger grand kids yesterday and it was a rainy day , so we didn't do much. They did color in a Sesame Street Hello Halloween coloring book , guess that counts. Last night I was reading some blogs and found this post on how to make a corn husk wreath , I want to try to make one of these , maybe next week. You can check it out here ~ ~.

I love the colored leave on the cardboard wall hanging. Thanks for the idea. I will be sure to make this one with my daycare kiddies.

Hi Marisa ~ It's a easy art project. I put the glue in an old jar lid and let him paint it the leaves , a glue stick might work fine. I had some corrugated cardboard on hand , so we glued them to it and added the twine/yarn hanger.
