"My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it's silver when it's wet,
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."
-Shel Silverstein

Fall, Halloween, Costume...

Well, it's been forever again... work has me so busy that at the end of the day I really don't want to even get online. But I've been meaning to post this stuff. Here are the fall/Halloween decorations around our house. The dining room table:
Above the TV armoire:
These are the ghosts my son and I made last year with tomato cages, sheets, felt and lights:

Our unlit ghosts:
I made these pumpkins last year too. They are glass/mason jars with tissue paper modpodged on them. I found them at the first blog I ever followed, Not So Idle Hands.

Then most of my time has been devoted to my son's Halloween costume. I think it turned out pretty cute! He won a contest we went to Tuesday.
Side view:

And it's even cuter with his adorable little face showing! But I just don't trust some internet crazies! :)

"BOO!" Your Neighbors!

My friend Kim in Virginia got the cutest little gift from one of her neighbors! It was a "boo"basket complete with a sign for her door letting everyone know she and her husband had been boo'ed and a little poem explaining the game (you have 2 days to make 2 baskets and print outs and leave them for your neighbors). It's too cute, so my son and I started it in our little town! :) Here are our 2 baskets we made: They have little Halloween signs and candy.

Here are the signs we printed out to send with our baskets:

You can get them (and different ones) at http://organizedchristmas.com Hope you enjoy starting one in your town!!
