What a weekend.........
Friday night was Fabulous Fairfield Friday Night
(Enrichment Super Activity)

Saturday was "The best Garage Sale ever"!
Here's a few of the goodies I snagged.....
It helps that my BFF, Terri has the best darn stuff
and I got a sneak peek......SCORE!
Look at this darling chocolate picture~I got 2 of them!

And....they're hanging my dining room
Then the best of all.....a visit from the Grands!
Tanner and Rylle surprised us Sunday evening and Tanner made me this picture.....I love it!
I wouldn't take stuff down and hang just anything in my breakfast room, but that's exactly what I did with this! A work of ART!

Look below.....
how tall and thin he made me.
Thank you made your Grandma look beautiful!

The haunted house at our haunted house......
OK, my camera cannot do this cute house justice ......
but this haunted house is the cutest thing we've ever seen!
So many details....I wish I knew how to use my camera better
because you can't believe some of the cute things.....right down to the shingles!!

Every bit of it is stuff you could eat...don't know that you'd want to
but that's part of making a gingerbread house.....make it out of
stuff you can eat. Cheetos, chocolate, licorice, etc., etc., etc.

Look in the bottom right hand corner of the picture above.....
Yep, you guessed "M" word!
Placed there for my benefit....of course!
The boys giggled and giggled over it when Grandma is scared.

Check out the picture below....this cracked me up!
If you knew these two it would crack you up too!
Talk about crazy......
Oh, that is more true than you realize......
she needs help!
She's a crazy lady and I ♥ her!
♥ you too Sandi!!

My sweet Aunt Nel......the builder of the house.....I'm going to her house after Thanksgiving and she's going to teach me some of her talents!

She also brought pumpkins, bats and ghosts!
Cookies and chocolate galore.....Sweetpie was one happy man after
Aunt Nels visit!

Come and get it..........

Be prepared~
Do you remember our
"Shabby Ladies Boutique"
Well, this year, instead, we're having a "GARAGE SALE"
Some of the Shabby (or crabby) Ladies have been cleaning and doing some redesigning.....ahemmmm....
that would be namely, Terri, Bev and Marla.
So, I got a call from Terri yesterday saying she was cleaning out her back room (we all know what that means) and wanted to have a garage sale.
Marla and I just redid a few rooms in our homes and are getting rid of a bunch of stuff too!
So, if you're looking for a bunch of real cool stuff you won't want to miss this!!
So, here's the scoop........
Saturday, Oct. 24
7:00 AM or until we get sick and tired of sitting out there or until all our stuff is gone.
Terri Hill's house....address to come later.
Spread the word....we'll have treats to sell know,
Mark your calendars!

Maybe these ghosts would scare me so bad I wouldn't want to eat them.
Ya think??

For 12 faces, place 1/3 cup (2 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on high until melted, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes; stir. Using a small brush, paint chocolate inside glasses (if it hardens too soon, microwave 20 seconds more). Let set a few minutes before adding shake. Prepare glasses up to a day ahead, but don't fill until ready to serve.
Fill them with your favorite vanilla milk shake...enjoy!
We're definitely going to try these next time the GRANDS come over.

Found it at Martha's

Trick or Treat
Smell my Feet

I found some black plates at Goodwill a few months ago.
I used them for a baby shower and then wondered what I was going to do with them......but then, remembering what my BFF Terri taught me, I decided to decorate with them.
These now sit on the desk in my living room.
I'm having fun decorating for Halloween this year just using a bunch of junk!
Show us some of the things you've done around your house to get ready for this SPOOKY holiday.

The Easter Bunny?????

After a visit from these sweet GRANDS....things are never the same!
Last night the kids were busy playing while grownups were visiting at the table.....We always have a good time when they visit....but we always find little surprises all over the house.
Last night, I think they played Easter Bunny, hiding the candy out of the Witches cauldron that was full of goodies.......
Where's the cauldron full of candy?

It was sitting right in front of these apothecary jars.....

What's up, I said to myself...
then, as I looked around the house this is what I found.....

Kit Kats.....ummmmmmm...Rylle's favorite

Look close, you'll find candy under everything........

Candy, candy everywhere......

Found a big stash here.....Now I understand why Rylle tackled Tanner every time he went near this chair!

We still haven't found the cauldron full (or half full) of candy.
