The Neighborhood Robot

I just have to show you Kyler dressed up in his costume! He was so awesome and EVERYONE (I do mean everyone) commented on how much they liked his costume. One neighbor lady even took his picture! Neat, huh? Okay, actually that made me kinda nervous but Todd said to let her do it so I did. Kyler and Todd made it together. Last year we made his costume too...he was I-90 with an interstate sign on his head and cars driving up his legs and arms...way cute! We get the ideas from Family Fun magazine and then go from there. We have found, though, that it costs just as much to make a costume as it does to buy on BUT when you buy it...you don't get to spend time with your child in the creative process...well worth the money and time you spend on making a costume! Oh, shoot! I just noticed in the picture that you can't tell that the green rectangle thing in the middle of his chest was blinking! It is a bike light and we set it to blink fast...Kyler just loved it! Anyway, isn't he just the cutest?

Oh, and I must show you something else! After Kyler received his Pokemon frame from JoAnna he just had to make her a card and I wanted to send her a little something so we sat down together one afternoon. He made a cute card and I cut a bunch of purple ribbon for her. Well...she got her package in the mail and posted it on her blog! So go HERE to see Kyler's card and the purple ribbon! :o) He has one more card to make and he is so excited! He loves to make cards with me and we don't do it nearly enough!

Alright, if I have time later today I will show you some of the cards I received in the Season of Joy swap that I hosted on a demo only website called SUDSOL. I have been so blessed in the swap department because each swap that I have ever posted has just had beautiful artwork included and this swap is no different. I think you all will LOVE what you see!

Have a wonderful first day of November!
