The caterpillar was tired by the time the ward party started. He fell asleep in the car on the way there, but he managed to have some fun anyway.
Landon had to do a double take when he saw Aaron in his costume. It turned out pretty cool. Although he did have a hard time doing some things with all those legs in the way. He said he wished they were functioning legs and he could use them to do things.

Here are mine:
I have a lot of baby food jars so I want to try this other idea that I saw here. She made her baby food jars into little festive treat jars for halloween, but you could really do it for any occassion. Like I said, I have a lot of baby food jars so if any of you ladies that live close want to come over with your kiddies sometime and try out the jack-o-lanterns or treat jars with me it could be fun. Plus then Landon would have someone to play with while I am crafting. :)

It was really easy, I just cut a towel in half and a washcloth in half, hemmed it, added a little ribbon - voila!

I really love it, but my favorite part is how we got the fabric. I don't know how many of you bring your husbands and sons to the fabric store, but I don't think its the most common thing. However, Aaron and Landon go with me fairly often. I really enjoy having them come. Aaron is really good about saying "yes, dear, that's great. yeah, I like that too." etc. Plus he can keep an eye on Landon. So, that is usually what he does.
Well, one time I took them to the fabric store and I'm looking at some fabric or whatever and Aaron wanders down the aisle a little ways, pulls out a bolt of fabric and goes "Hey, what about this one?" (and he's pretty excited about it). It made my heart sing. Even if the fabric had been totally ugly I would have bought some, but, no, my husband has very good taste in little girl fabric ;) and he knows me really well. The fabric was the most adorable green leaves with ladybugs print (seen in the photo above). I was so excited, but I tried not to act overly joyous about the fact that he picked it because that might cause him to never do it again.
I even had him pick between a couple patterns which dress I should make out of it. So, this is the dress Aaron picked for his little girl. So cute! He is going to make such a fantastic daddy to a little girl.

This is a blanket that my mom was given when I was born. It is darling! It has four squares that hav pockets for a little doll to go in. One that is a cradle, tub, buggy and highchair. So cute! But I guess I was a little hard on the doll - very well loved. So my mom kept the blanket for me, but not the doll. So, I made a doll myself. I had no pattern or guide or anything. I made it up. And I think it turned out pretty cute.

This is just as you walk in.
This is the awesome quilt my mom made for him.
I love the bamboo and I made the curtains.
The bookcase with all his jungle stuffed animals.
Now I just have to get up the courage to let my little baby sleep in a big boy bed in a big boy bedroom. :( I just don't want him to grow up!
This is one of my favorite projects. And it was super easy. I love to do things for Landon, but it seems like there is so much more out there for little girls. So, I was thrilled when I found this idea here for little boys! I love the way it turned out and can't wait for him to wear it.
I still love making things for little girls too. I made this dress out of the exact same fabric used for my bridesmaid skirts and groomsmen ties when we got married in August 2005. How fun is that?! My mother-in-law still had some that was left over, so when she found out I liked making dresses for my baby-to-be she gave it to me.
