Giddy

I am just giddy with excitement that it is the Holiday Season! David and the kids carved pumpkins for the pumpkin carving contest at MiMi and Grandpa's country club where we are going to party tonight. Didn't he do a GREAT job! Kirstyn picked out her haunted house design and we found this spooky tree design for James'. He has this Scooby Doo book that he loves and on one of the pages there is a tree that is making a "scary" shadow. I always pretend to be scared and James always tells me, "its otay mommy.... its just a TEE (tree)!" So cute!



I am a theme kind of girl and I find it fun to prepare foods around a theme. I am also hosting a little Halloween get together tomorrow night that may or may not include some of the following:


A Meatloaf Hand, some Graveyard Gravel, adult Candy Corn Cordials, and even some Snake Bites Sandwich since I'm pretty sure the kids will not be willing to eat the hand!

I have to say THANKS to Skip To My Lou for gathering many of these ideas that I fell in love with!

Those pumpkins were not very easy to carve. I am so glad the kiddos like them so much...

I am getting better every year. One day soon, I need to get one of those Dremel electric pumpkin carving kits! Then I can be even better!!!! ;-)
