Halloween is less then 24 hours away and I realized I didn't have a costume yet. I pulled out the costume bin and dug through it. I found this vintage 50's sweater and pink slip. But no poodle skirt. I figured I could whip something up. I found a free poodle pattern at this site. But when I printed it out it was tiny so I ended up having to free hand it. I used a work skirt much to my son's concern. He kept asking me if people would know it was a work skirt. I also had to explain to a 5 year old why I would pin a dog to my skirt. It was a fun conversation.

These scarry snacks are so cute and fun to eat. I saw the recipe in a cooking magazine. Just take yogurt cups, draw faces, and add green food coloring. Top with licorice, a cookie, and the ice cream cones. Then eat. I couldn't find black licorice so settle for some green sour strips that I cut to size. Happy eating.

I turned around and it was October already. My last post was the middle of September. This time of year is so busy. Soccer, piano, back to school night, Halloween. So much fun. The house is decorated, the costumes are bought, and the pumpkins are at the patch. I love this time of year. I finished a great holiday quilt project but I can't show photos as it is a gift. tay tunred for that one. Tomorrow the kids have school but I am off. I repeat I am off. So I plan to shop and shop, and go to Joann's. I can't wait.
Today we had fun making cricut people. The boys were really patient waiting for there items to cut. And they glued them on by themselves.
