AnD WeRe CaRoLiNg !!!

I took DD and my niece to go caroling tonight at St. Marys Nursing home.
It was truly a blessing, seeing the joy on the old folks faces.
Some of them were clapping and singing along.
This is what Christmas is truly about.

Almost Christmas

WHOA! I cant believe how fast Christmas is coming and I haven't done ANY shopping yet!

I have been working on a few projects.

This sweet little star ornament is a kit I got from Little Pink Studio.
Look at the sweet little angel in there.
I can almost hear her glorious carols.

Here are some ornaments I made last year.
Just plain wooden ornaments I got from Joann's
and some patterned paper and glass glitter.

This cute little bunny ornament I made from a Little Pink Studios cupcake kit.

This sweet little putz house is another Little Pink Studios kit.
It is almost magical when you look at it.
Kassandra said "I want to live there".
I said "I want to live there too!

I have my house decorated finally. Here is my fireplace.
I just love it. It's all sparkly and pretty.
Just the way Christmas should be!

HaPPy HaLLoWeeN !

What a great day!

We had so much fun !

It started out on Halloween eve, when we carved our pumpkins.

We had a carving party with me, Kassandra, Simon, Mo, Sissy (Simon's girlfriend),

Heather (Sissy's friend, and Cindy (my friend).

Kassandra is carving out her pumpkin and than she carved out a cute little gourd.

Simon and Mo are carving their pumpkins.
Mo had to use a big, old survival knife.
The pumpkins turned out great!

On Halloween day, the kids had a parade at school.
It was great to see all the kids dressed up in their outfits.
They also had a school wide party in the gym, where everyone made craft, played games and h
ad goodies.

Desi, my niece,in her spider girl costume.
I sprayed her hair with black hair spray and painted her face.

Connor and Katrina were dressed up as Spider Man and Super Girl, so cute!

Kassandra was dressed up as a sick person.
We painted her nose red, she carried a box of tissues and had a thermometer in her mouth.
She sneezes out lollipops for the little kids!

Kassandra had the idea to make a haunted woods for the trick or treaters. It was a blast! We set up a path in the woods. It was a lot of work!
We put up monsters, lights, a strobe light.
Mo's friends were the monsters.

One of the monsters, waiting for an innocent victim!

A spooky grave site!

Oh, oh Chuckys in trouble!

A group of hanging skeleton heads!

Another frightening grave site. This one lit up. The tombstones glowed!

A peek at part of the path!

A creepy skeleton is watching over everything and everybody!

A menacing mummy, looking for more victims!
The haunted woods was a great success,
monsters were howling,
girls were screaming,
kids were crying.

A very happy Halloween indeed!
