Getting Ready for Halloween!

Pumpkins Canvas Collage
(I just love making these things!!!)

Halloween... oh boy... we've been 'dealing' with Halloween for almost a week! It started last Friday with a birthday sleepover that Sami went to. Costumes were required, but not gory or scary. Humpf. Therefore, Sami needed 2 costumes this year - because she wanted to be a vampire for Halloween, but went as a kitty to the party! Since my kids are of the creative age, I bought a few props for them and they were 'on their own' to create the rest of their costumes... A good practice I figured....

It was fun listening to Jake last night say 'Mom, can I have some of your ribbon?', and 'Mom, where are your glue dots?', and 'Mom, I need something thicker to make a star out of (he got hooked up with chipboard and a star punch by his sister!)....


******************
So, the kids carved their pumpkins earlier this week, and little Pumpkin Kitty had to sneak in there as well! Today the kids had their fall parties at school, along with wearing their costumes.. And when they came home they wanted to play Monopoly.. I could not resist catching a Witch (which by the way is MY costume - surprised???) and Dracula playing a card game!

Tonight we are roasting pumpkin seeds...

I really need to get the treat bags made.

And put up the rest of the decorations!

Tomorrow is Halloween... It's been a beautiful Fall the last few weeks.. oh man...

And of course, the weather is going to take a drastic change tomorrow! Rain is in the forecast for the next week!

Go figure...
