scarecrows and pumpkins

Yesterday was a scarecrow kind of day.
Binky reminded me how much he loves making these every year
so I printed some more copies from
This year Binky articulated his scarecrow and added a sword.
He looks quite scary, don't you think?
I love the top hat on Goose's scarecrow.
We've also had fun decorating paper mache pumpkins.
I laid out all the materials, tissue paper, glitter, paint, fabric, and let the kids
go at it.  I love how they turned out!
We are in full autumn decorating mode.  I will show more
when I get home.
We are off to the SF Opera house today to see a dress rehearsal of
The Marriage of Figaro!
I cannot wait!
