Hay (Bale) Fever!

Today has been a fun but super busy Monday. Heather and I (with the help of Savannah) finished decorating our hay bales (we ended up having to decorate two) for the Halloween Festival tomorrow. We began at 9:00 am and did not finish until well after 6:00 pm. All three of us are exhausted, but it was well worth the work! Our hay bales ended up so cute!

For our first hay bale we decided to make it into a vampire bat. His wings were quite a challenge, but we were pleased with the way he ended up.


I think our second hay bale might be my favorite! For our second hay bale, we created a robot. You can't see him very well, but he is complete with two working clocks on his body and a spiral of wire above his head.


Oh, and I have to include this picture just because it makes me giggle. This was my attempt to take my picture with the robot.


Our hay bales are cute, but there are really some amazing hay bales out there. I will try to get pictures of some of my favorites to share with you later in the week. Also, stay tuned for pictures of our trick-or-treat tree and the special collar I made Scout (my sweet little cocker spaniel) to wear to the festival!!
