Halloweenie Time!

Fall is the best season! If you have not gathered, I love it. But what excites me most about the season fall, is that my favorite holiday is fast approaching! Yes, Halloween. People may laugh or give me odd, side glances, or even do the "she is crazy" thing by their heads, but I love it, love it, love it! This year I cannot wait to decorate for fall and Halloween. I have a ton of stuff, however I had to pick up some new goodies this year. (Brian enjoys the use of the word "had", he says I did not have to have anything.) I also decided to make a few things to. However my biggest obsession is vintage Halloween stuff. I tried to download a cool template for our blog, but had no luck. I have bought some replica vintage Halloween things, but I ever scour the shelves of flea markets and antique places. Wish me luck for that awesome find!

New goodies! Mr. Owl, black leaves, vintage cool!

We as a family also starting talking about costumes. Here is where it gets tricky. I am a big advocate for making costumes. I am not the best seamstress in the world however I have a willing heart. Today I asked the kids what they wanted to be for Halloween. This is what they said:

Liam's Top "consistent" choices

1. A Weimaraner, like our dog Lily Boo
2. A DumpThhhrulchk (For those of you who have not yet mastered "Liamese" that is Dump Truck.)
3. An Owl


1. A princess
2. A princess, again
3. And a I don't know! Hmmm...


Here is the heartbreaking moment, and I quote "I think I just want to hand candy out." AHHH! No dressing up, just help hand out the candy. Who is this boy, and where is my son? I told him I brought him up better than that. Total sacrilege!

Yesterday I was having a conversation with my friend and fellow Halloween lover, Sonia. We sat and debated on how early is early to decorate for the scary night? Well, I guess I got my answer from Avin, not soon enough! I WILL bring back that ole' Halloween spirit in his heart if it is the last thing I do! Hee hee ha Haa! (My witchy cackle)

I'm seriously thinking Avin needs to dress up - even if he is just passing out candy, and my vote is on Smiegel! hee hee

I can learn a lot from you Heather...I usually don't celebrate too much of Fall - it's just depressing! Thanks for sharing your excitement about it :)

I found these kids chairs at a flea market and got them both for $15. I love this color!
