I hope you all had a wonderfully frightful Halloween! We had fun passing out the candy to all the kids in their cute little costumes. Also as you can see from the pic above, Mozzie got both of his wishes...he got a fancy mask and got to pass out (in the) candy!
I apologize for these two pics because they were taken with my small camera which obviously I should set aside some time and figure out how to use. But we had fun pumpkins again this year. R carved the one on top. He always does fancy ones, and this one was a haunted house. I decided to forgo my usual cutesy-Hallmark style and made a scary one based on the pumpkin scarecrow in the movie Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp. The bottom one was inspired by Martha Stewart. They looked great all lit up, but unfortunately I couldn't get a pic of it with that camera.
I found it a bit curious that only one other house in our neighborhood had any decorations out. I always like to do it up right and decorate outside. I think it's more fun for the kids...ok and me too. I do love holidays!
Saturday night we decided to engage in something a little more on the grown up side of Halloween fun and went ghost hunting with a professional paranormal team. We didn't find any ghosts (nor did I expect to) but it was fun and we got out of the house on a nice night...45 degrees, which for this time of year is rare. Plus I got to wear my new coat. R was really happy about that part. He couldn't have cared less that I bought something new, but actually getting me into a coat is next door to a miracle. He nags me constantly to wear coats and scarves and socks and shoes and all sorts of unnecessary articles of clothing. Men and their kooky ideas!
I also managed to get a whole lot of work done around the house, do a mountain of laundy, bake a chicken and brownies and just basically work my keister off all weekend. This week, I need to do some prep work for his painting the living room while I am gone on my trip. So it's going to be a busy week for me. I have also been toying around with a new design for a brand new animal. But that will have to be put off until I come back from Montana.
Lastly...the first wave of pieces sold from the sale will be going out tomorrow. Remember you have through Friday to take advantage of the sale!
