Today I had to share my recent Harry Potter creation of The Monster Book of Monsters. It was actually my husbands idea for a birthday present for his mother; she is a big fan of Harry Potter. I wasn't so sure she'd like it, but he was positive. So he came up with the idea and then me and Captain Awesome made it.

For last Halloween, baby sweet cheeks was Dobby the house elf. He was only 4 months old and he made the cutest little elf. Seriously, just look at that smile.

I love the fall season, but I must admit, when it comes to Halloween I stay far away from anything remotely scary or too Halloweenish. Seriously, when we lived in Erie Pa, we literally lived in the only part of town where EVERYONE decked out their front patios and lawns with scary decor. I took the long way home every day. If your child comes trick or treating with a scary costume on, I might just not answer the door. Just joking, but not really. What can I say, I hate scary. Anyway, this print I have for you today just passes my strict Halloween code. Well, it's just too good not to put up.

A super simple phrase but one that is true. It is amazing how much happier when are midst trials when we just show gratitude for what we do have. As we make this a habit in our lives we begin to see more and more what God has blessed us with, and it helps us see how the trials we experience will bless us as well. Instead of just being mad that we are going through it.

About a week ago, a friend of mine decided to have a little fall crafty party. She picked two easy crafts that we could do, and then everyone brought their own crafty supplies for their chosen craft. One of the crafts was these cute button pumpkin pictures (see example HERE). I was planning on doing it like the picture, but then last week I saw Amy's (from Delineate Your Dwelling) bean pumpkin and had the idea of using beans instead of buttons.

Sierra and I are planning our annual Harry Potter party and I realized that this blog just wouldn't be the same without our traditional Harry Potter goodness during the month of October. October has become our official way of showing our nerdy Harry Potter love in full force. Stay tuned throughout October for some fun HP posts. I promise you won't regret it.
