Bug Collection and Pumpkins Oh my

(disclaimer if you don't like bugs don't look)

Okay I don't know about ya'll but bugs are not my favorite things. But when your daughter has to collect 38 different ones for biology what do you do...you look on as your kitchen become some kind of laboratory
Doesn't Brinsley look so excited (check out the GA cup)And yes that is my dining room table with its cute fall decorations surrounded by bugs. All night I keep saying I am going to have nightmares about this, I didn't get a picture of the finally result because I went to bed I just could not take it anymore! Dad finished the project!Now on to cuter things I made these over the weekend I think they turned out so good and the best part they didn't cost me hardly anything to make them about 3 dollars a piece!
I want to thank each of you for the get well wishes it was so nice of each one of you I feel so much better today just a little cough. I think my house suffered worse than me so I am off to clean and wash clothes how can four people wear so many clothes!

My boys would love to collect bugs. If I let them. We can wait until they take biology. Your pumpkins looks so cute and dressed up with florals. :-)

I reallly hope my kids never have to do a project like that! I know I would totally freak out! The pumpkins are so cute! Glad you're feeling better! Isn't it just amazing how much of a mess kids and hubbies can make when no one is able to pick up after them?

How fun. Just kidding! One of our good friends is an entymologist(Okay I've spelled that three different ways and it doesn't look right but oh well!) my point is that he gave us a gift of some pinned bugs in a frame, and I actually really like it! Of course, I didn't pin the bugs AND they are behing glass ;-)
