Happy Monday, friends! First off, the biggest congratulations to my cousin Chris and his new bride Julie on their beautiful wedding this past weekend! It was an amazingly lovely event filled with love and happiness. I couldn’t stop smiling the entire time. It’s rare to find two people so perfect for one another and these two are it.
Halloween is fast approaching and my little Ava bug is extremely excited! I’ll give you two guesses who she is going to be, lol. This year we decided to go with a pumpkin decorating kit as the main “big” pumpkin with her favorite love Mr. Darth Vader. What I love about these kits is how easy they are and how you can re-use the parts for the following year. Darth came with black paint, a paint sponge, his head, two arms, and chest plate. We got ours at Target for $10. Once the paint was dry, I made small holes in the pumpkin to push the pieces into. I saw online some people used a decorative black pumpkin from a craft store like Michael’s instead of a real one, but we went with the real deal. After the pieces were in, we touched up some of the paint where it was sparse and voila! A pretty cool Vader pumpkin was born. Needless to say, Ava LOVES it! It’s a good idea for any last minute pumpkin decorating too. Happy decorating!!
