I'm especially happy that today is Halloween because for the last month, I've used this photo as my screen saver and I have to tell you ... blown up large, those spiders ... as cute as they are ... are kind of creepy! These are coffee mugs that Kowalski's has for sale ... I'm hoping there is at least one left ... I'd like to get it when I stop in for my lunch this morning. I don't know why I didn't think to buy one for myself!
I pity the kids coming to our house tonight. We're having new siding put on our house and have a huge dumpster sitting in our driveway. You have to walk past it to get to the sidewalk. But by the time Bob gets done with it, I'm not so sure how brave some of those little kids will be! He has a fog machine ... he's always wanted one ... some colored lights and spooky music that he's placing inside. It'll be a scream ... literally!
This morning, Alex sent me an email from Djibouti where it is no longer October 31st. He was controlling gate access and his group said Happy Halloween to everyone who went through the gate. He said that some of the people looked at them strangely but most laughed ... and knowing Alex and some of his friends, it was probably a ton of fun to goof around and see the reactions.
If you have an hour, you could whip up this cute bag for trick or treating tonight! Its from Terry Atkinson's Happy Hour book. Bobbi made it for her granddaughter, Julia. Imagine how much cuter it'll be stuffed with candy tonight!
And if you have a few more minutes, whip up a batch of Vampire Cookies ... the perfect snack ... after it gets dark, of course!
