Simple DIY Halloween Decor

A message from Dana:

Happy Halloween from all of us at Anderson Avenue!  On this eve of Halloween, we are scurrying to costume parties and making last minute preparations for another special day of Trick or Treating.  As an update to an earlier post, I thought I would share my little boy's costume for this year and some fun, but easy, DIY Halloween decor.

I was sure we were in for a season of Star Wars this year but as it turns out, my five year old has become obsessed with the Pirates of the Caribbean.  In our search for costumes we found the kid's versions were not as authentic as the adults and he was not really loving the idea of me making him a costume.  So, we settled on a Pirate Ghost.  It all a bit of a shock this year, just how big he's getting.  The days of sweet costumes are quite possibly done and he came home from school this week with an even bigger announcement...... his two bottom teeth are loose.  While he's ecstatic about his leap into big boyhood,  I am feeling a little discomfort in my stomach about it all.  Funny to many of you, I know.  But he's my only and I just adore every moment I get.  I hope each of you will enjoy your Halloween as much as we do and make it a safe and memorable holiday for you and your family.

I am amazed at how we got from the little Pirate to this big Pirate Ghost in 3 short years

Remembering Ava - 1 year later

Today Anderson Avenue remembers a special child, Ava Sentell.  She lost her battle with Cancer one year ago today at the age of 4.  She was very close to our Anderson Avenue family and it's because of her we have joined the fight against Childhood Cancer with the Rally Foundation.  For more information about her and other children who battle cancer or to join the fight for this underfunded cause, visit

Ava was a brave 4 ½ year-old who was only two weeks away from starting pre-kindergarten when she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. She had developed a large bump on her head that persisted for nearly two weeks, and a precautionary CT scan showed that she had several bleeds on her brain. From there on out, each day brought on more devastating news as her family learned that she had tumors in her heart, liver, both kidneys, spleen and adrenal gland. Within three days of her first scan, she began her first round of chemo, and her family was suddenly tossed into the world of childhood cancer. All of the pathology tests have been completed and were inconclusive, so her cancer has been called Undifferentiated Sarcoma. Her family was told they might never have an exact diagnosis.  Despite some promising results from chemo, Ava lost her battle 3 months after she was diagnosed.  She leaves two incredible parents, Casey and Christina and her treasured little brother Dylan who will continue to honor by fighting the cause in hope there will soon be a cure.

Ava would always tells her family that she loves everybody, even people she does not know.  She was a spunky spirit with diva style and a million dollar smile.  Today we remember her and send our prayers and love to her family as they struggle to move forward.

A Child's Chair Is Special

Giving children a space to call their own is not only important for a child but its considered a treasured gift to a child. As you know, children often mimic their parents or their more "grown up" loved ones as they are learning and growing. Children are also subjected to constant direction from authority figures. Giving them their own space such as a kids chair or kids rocking chair is one way to make them feel special and loved as well as  giving them freedom to act "grown up", bringing them great pleasure and a sense of control. At Andy Land For Kids (aka Anderson Avenue) we have searched out some of the top quality kids chairs and kids rocking chairs for our customers. We know that, not only do children love a chair of their own, but, they are still kids and giving them lower quality furniture will only bring disappointment if it cannot withstand the wear and tear of kids being kids. Our kids chairs and kids rocking chairs offer a range of prices, styles, sizes and colors.  These upholstered kid's chairs are made right here in the USA and offer custom options to suit your child and your home. While the chair is for the child's enjoyment, we realize that it also has to fit into your home environment. The designer fabric choices available will give you options that fit in to any home decor.  We hope you will enjoy shopping our selection of kids chairs and that you find just the perfect chair for your child and your home. We are certain that it will be as exciting for you give the special gift of a kids chair as it will be for the child who is receives it.

This is a remarkable memoir by Melinda Marchiano depicting her journey through the pains and triumphs of Childhood Cancer and Recovery.  With September being Childhood Cancer Month, we thought we would share Melinda's book as she donates a portion of the sales from her book to the cause of fighting Cancer in Children.  We hope you will find this inspirational story as moving as we do and join in the fight of saving more children's lives.

As we have mentioned before, Anderson Avenue is a supporter of The Rally Foundation which focuses on the underfunded cause of Childhood Cancer Research.  Melinda has chosen a merchant processor for her book that gives back from each purchase to the Children’s Miracle Network.  For the month of September, Melinda has chosen Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research.

New Halloween Buckets!

Get ready for Fall!  Check out these New 

Excited for Fall!

A post from Dana:

With these cool mornings here in Atlanta, I all I can think about is "How much longer until I can put my pumpkins out?"  I LOVE fall and fall decor.  Its my favorite season.  The warm colors, cool weather and down pour of leaves are so soothing to me.  Well, until I have to actually rake the leaves.  Halloween is my second favorite holiday, with Christmas being my favorite.  I guess I love Halloween so much because it signifies the beginning of fall and it's the first hint of real holiday decor at my house.  I just get so excited about the kids beaming with joy in their Halloween costumes and playing the part of their character.  At my house, we've already been looking into the best Star Wars costume for my 5 year old.  It's a toss between General Grievous and Darth Maul.  That is if he can part from Power Rangers.  However, I feel that Star Wars just may win out this year.

I remember last year was the first year that my little boy was comfortable with me dressing up.  Years before I would offer to dress up with him (secretly excited for the holiday) and he would quickly tell me "No, I just want you to be Mommy".  I was so moved by the declaration that being "Mommy" was perfect enough that I would forgo the costume.  But last year, I was granted permission to be a ghost and I had FUN!  I didn't get too elaborate but we made some fun ghosts to go along with me for the Trunk or Treat at church and the kids loved them.  I will let you know when we get closer to our big costume decision this year.  But as for last year, take a peak.  I know he doesn't look like he's too sure of it all, but it really was fun.   We'd love for you to share you Halloween moments.  Our last years have been store bought costumes but I know some of you have some very creative ideas for costumes and fall decor.  Please share.  You'll enhance our SPIRIT around here!
