Our Spooky Dinner

I'm a little late at posting this, but at least it's before Halloween, right?? We have had our traditional spooky dinner for about 6 years now (maybe longer). We have done it by ourselves but have found that it's more fun to invite people! This year we invited some friends (as opposed to family like we have in the past). It's always so much fun that I want to do another one!! LOL

We have bloody worms and eyeballs for our meal (spaghetti and meatballs). Our friends brought large mummy fingers...but when we cut it up, it just looked like moldy bread...even better!! They also brought a salad topped with olives (black) and carrots (orange)...very festive. We had slime to drink (lemonade) and we only have candles lit. I have Halloween music playing in the background and we use Halloween plates and cups and napkins. Something else that we do is make up place cards. We look up spooky words and such and match them to our names. We have Dangerous Daddy, Monster Mommy, Evil Evan, Terrifying Tyler, Haunted Heidi, Lifeless Lindsey and Daunting Derek. We also do this for our guests. We have quite a collection of names!!!

We really look forward to this night every year. Thanks to the Browns for joining us this year!!!!

I am so happy! I have finally sent off my last "pay it forward". It was so much fun making things for people! You know those blocks that I have posted on here (and on Facebook)? Well...that's what I made for my blocks! I really hope that you enjoy them!!!

Crafts 'n stuff...

My sister had this project that she wanted to do for all of her siblings one year for Christmas, but never got around to it. When we got together a couple weekends ago, she brought it over and we all made our own. I think it turned out really cute!!

Also, I received this cute blanket from my sister-in-law M as my pay it forward gift. It has ties on the end and you tie it to the stroller and it has warm, snuggly fabric on the underside (the brown). I don't have to worry about the blanket falling off and running over it! Pretty clever, huh? We saw it a couple years ago at a craft fair and she said that it was easy to make. I get one! Yay!! It's really cute and I used it for the first time today. And, of course, it has monkeys on it! :-)

And, I had to post this picture of my little guy. He is getting so big. He sat in my sister's exersaucer the other day and loved it! So, I had Ryan pull down the walker and he loves sitting in there. He is so curious! He wants to see everything and doesn't want to miss a thing!!

Scentsy Party

Have you heard of Scentsy? If not, check it out here. Scentsy candles are leadless, flameless, wickless and smokeless. I have really enjoyed having one in my home. I am hosting a party at my home on Tuesday, October 13th. All are welcome to come and smell all the wonderful scents that they have!! Would love to see you!!

School Pictures

Some of you will remember my post last year about how expensive school pictures are. So, once again, I did the pictures at home. I think they turned out good!
