Busy, busy, BUSY!

This is in respose to an email that said we must not be doing anything new since nothing new is on my blog! All I have to say is I am MUCH too busy these days to get much on here.

Here is what our November calendar looks like:

There are also several things not on here. Like scrapbooking on the 21st, adoption fair on the 24th, making a garland and live wreath for the "Festival of Trees," and babysitting Jackson and Sierra overnight on the 24th.

Now I am busy making 12 potscrubbers for a lady that ordered them. Next is making 8 more paper quilled Christmas tree ornaments for a swap I joined again. Then hopefully I can finish decorating the house and getting ready for Christmas here. Also letters and cards need to be finished and sent to everyone!

Catch ya later!

This photo was actually taken on September 13th, 2007. It was a BIG spider that came in on the plants I brought in the night before. Rick found it on the arm of our couch and got me out of bed to take pictures of it and then get it out of the house before the kids saw it!

Denver came home from school on October 30th with purple hair! Some kids in grade 6 or 7 were charging people $1 to do this. I think they made a LOT of money as there were several children that walked by here with the same thing. It was all out of his hair by the next morning. I still have to get a photo of him in his costume to put on here. Megan didn't go Trick-or-Treating as none of her friends were going.

Savannah at a Halloween party we were invited to at another day home. There were close to 20 children there under school age! They all wore their costumes and listened to a Halloween Clifford story. ate "spiders" made out of ritz with cheese whiz in the middle which held in pretzel stick legs and cheeze whiz dots on the top to hold on raisin eyes. I wish I had taken a photo of those. Then they had pumpkin or bat cookies as well. After that they all played with the MILLION toys in the basement and listened to Monster Mash.

This was the scene in our neighbor's yard yesterday morning. In the evening there was one more dummy in red coveralls, plus another "dummy" that was really the neighbor with a mask on. He had a smoke machine behind him that he used plus a chainsaw (with no chain) in his hands. Everytime older kids would be heading back out to the street from his house he would get up swing the chainsaw around and cut the heads off a couple of the dummies. Most of the kids got pretty freaked out. I found out later that when Rick was home he would hide behind the door with it open a little so he could hear the kids coming. When they got to the step he would throw open the door and make horrible noises. Apparently he got more screams because the kids were already freaked out from the other house and ours didn't look scary at all. We had no decorations outside, our one pumpkin that got finished never made it out on the steps this year!

Skeleton bride. I think her groom was in the window in his pajamas!

Accident scene. Little girl on her bike run over by a truck.

No wonder there was an accident, look who was driving!

My dayhome kids, Savannah and I all dressed up after the party

Savannah all tuckered out after "Trick-or-Treating!" She absolutely LOVED Trick-or Treating. I asked her a couple times if she liked it and she would say Yep or Yes. I also would say want to Trick-or-Treat at that house and she would say Yep everytime! I finally just brought her home because her hands were getting frozen. I had a bag for the food bank in town again so it was no problem to come back. People kept giving me canned food! I told them they take candy too, but lots of people still gave me cans and someone gave me $2. The food bank will get quite a variety from us this year. I'm taking Savannah's leftover baby food too.

Isn't she cute?

After we got back the first time she was trying to put all our hand out candy into her bag!

Mmmmmmmmm Smarties!

The cutest little Tinkerbell ever. Her facepainting was done at the Tri-Leisure Center "Halloween Hoopla."

Happy baby.

Healthy snack of grapes before bed.

Oh Mum I am too tired, just put me to bed. No more pictures!

Last one. Night night.
