The day after . . . Halloween!

Whew! There is a lot going on today. Do you have a candy hangover? I think I do! First off, Happy Birthday to our friend, Mike! Woohoo! Have a great day, my friend!

Next, ScrapCity has listed a TON of challenges for the month of November. If you aren't already visiting ScrapCity, WHY aren't you? It's a lot of fun!! It's the friendliest message board around! I am THRILLED to be on the Creative Team!! We're also going to have an online crop from the 17th through the 24th. So here's what I think you should do. Go, sign up, and see if you like being there! No commitment, no big deal, just check it out! I guarantee that the monthly challenges will INSPIRE YOU! I'll see you there!


I got this FANTASTIC card from my blogging friend Chris! I never get Halloween cards (nor did I mail any out this year . . . I have no idea WHY I didn't mail any out!!), so I was thrilled to get this! I love it Chris! I love the scallops, the cat, the sentiment, the gingham ribbon . . . I love it all! Thank you so much!


Next, Emily got this card from her pen pal, Kendall. Kendall is Latisha's daughter, and I'm sure you'll admit that the talent runs in the family! (Check out Latisha's blog . . . she has some EXCITING news!) Emily loves this card! Gorgeous Kendall!


Here's are the girls after school, before we went trick-or-treating. I love my backyard shots! Aren't those leaves gorgeous? Aren't my girls beautiful?! I just love them!!


Of course, I have to include a photo of Princess! She's sporting one of her Halloween bandannas!


I love this decoration that we saw while we were trick-or-treating! Spooky!


We also loved this pumpkin. It's Jack Skellington's face!

My girls in trick-or-treating action! Jessica was showing me the sour lemon Warhead she had just gotten!

We're back at home, and done for the night! They're both still "in character"!! Emily is doing her Miss America wave, and Jessica is still showing her grumpy face! Love these girls!!

So, we had a great night! It was a BEAUTIFUL day yesterday! I'm off to work on some ScrapCity challenges! Join me, won't you?? Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!!

Gorgeous RAKs & what fun photos! I didn't do too much for Halloween this year; I have no kidlets yet & we're in an apartment, so we get no trick or treaters. It made it doubly fun to to see your pictures! Great costumes the girls had (so creative and Princess looks great too, heehee) Looks like you all had a blast! Thanks for sharing, :O)

Becky said...
