Bodie's first haircut......

Joel and I finally bit the bullet and took Bodie to get his first haircut was a little sad for us! We loved his little curly-Q's, was looking a bit hoo! He's not our little baby boy anymore....he's growing into those toddler years just a little too fast for our liking....but, we have to deal with it! I took a million pictures of the big event....he is such a hoot...he charmed both ladies that were working and they both said he did really well for his first time!

The "before" shot! His little baby fine hair.......

He didn't know what to think when we put him the chair....he liked the cape!

Still happy.....

"look at me Mom and Dad....I'm so stinking cute!"

What the heck?????? I don't like the clippers one little bit!

But, I'm not crying.....just squirmy and making the stylist earn her money!

Ummmmm, can we get this over with????


And now, I'm going to give you a crusty look just to let you know that I'm not happy about this....but, I do like the squirt bottle a little bit!

Hmmmmm, this isn't so fact, I like it...especially since she moved me so that I can see myself in the mirror...I'm digging this!


Looking sharp!

Oh man!!!!!! Those dang clippers again (she saved the worst for last...and whew that was smart, because he was really, really over it!)

DADDY!!!!!! Why are you doing this to me????

I'll never forgive you for this!!

Two seconds later.......and we have a brand new boy!

And he's happy once again! This was before church this morning....looking like a big boy.
Not sure I can deal with him growing up....I just want to squeeze him and smooch him all day!

Fall Decorating.....(and a few pics of Bodie of course)

I'll start off with a few pics of our crazy little man! Is he ever giving me a run for my money...ha ha! He is such a mess, but words cannot describe how in love we all are with him....even when he is dragging out every single pot and pan and measuring cups (his favorite) all over the house and doesn't give a fig when we tell him "NO" a million times a day...he still manages to melt our hearts!

He's cutting some more teeth and goes after anything he can sink his teeth into...including our toes...OUCH!

He looks like such an angel here.....don't be fooled!!!

Oh, but he's got such a face!!

It's no secret that Fall is my favorite time of just makes me so happy...I love the colors, I love the weather, I love everything about it which is why I try and make it last as long as possible! I usually try to have everything out by Sept. 1st, that way I have a good 3 months to enjoy all my fall decor! Here a few things I did in the living room and entry way...I have more through out the house, but I'll have to take pics of those later.
I put a dough bowl with gourds and apples on the buffet....those dough bowls from Belgium sure do provide lots of decorating ideas....should of bought more!

More stuff on the buffet...the willow tree is new this year, it has little acorns on the branches...I love it! Acorns are my new favorite this year.

I got this crock from PB and I love it so much...but I couldn't believe how stinking HUGE it was when I got was hard finding enough of anything to fill it up...but, luckily I found these cattail things in my box of fall flowers, I forgot all about them and was so excited when I didn't have to go out and buy something new...and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how they look!
I bought white slipcovers for my chairs when we moved here and last year I found the two orange slipcovers on EBAY for something ridiculous like a buck a piece...I thought they would look good as the two end chairs on the table...I love how they bring the color into the room!

Gourds on the piano....I need to find a gourd farm around here...I got these in Farmington 10 years ago!

The dough table in the living room....I may change this up a little bit, but it works for now!

A shot of my new (used) couch! Craigslist is the bomb diggity! I found the Erktorp Ikea couch a few months ago....the slipcovers can be bleached and it looked like a brand new if I can keep little munchkin and his dirty hands away from it!

I copied the pillows from a PB catalog...I just used fabric paint and a stencil I made with my cricut machine...I think they look pretty darn cute and I saved like 50 bucks! (seriously, PB thinks their doo-doo doesn't stink...whatever)

A look into the living room/dining room.

The entry way ended up being one of my favorite places this year....I am so in love with my settee....I just used things I already had...the pumpkin pictures are ones I made years ago using a book that I cut up and the eye chart thing is totally my favorite thing I've bought this year....Target is a very, very scary place for me...ha ha!

I love the colors and the black and white!

Simple wreaths in a plate rack

Entry table....Joel pointed out that the harvest sign is off...ah well, Bodie was not having anymore of my decorating fun....he wanted to PLAY! Anywhoo, there is the fall decor so can these colors make anyone NOT want to cozy up on the couch with hot chocolate and a good movie!! Now, if only the weather would cooperate!
