Here are a few things I've made this week to help us celebrate this favorite of holidays. All from the brilliant minds of the blogosphere.
In playing along with Kelli & Finny's CRAFT:along for this month, I'm sending Halloween notes to the Great-grandparents. Okay, they are computer-made, not entirely homemade, but let's not be sticklers. :)
That Cindy has so many fantastic ideas. I stole this idea directly from her. I was hoping I could get two bats per sheet of construction paper, but they are just *that* much too big. I only had four sheets of black, so Aidin's teachers will get orange bats. That's called going with the flow.
And for Aidin's class party, which is a FALL party, not a HALLOWEEN party, despite the fact that they get to wear their costumes and parade around the school (don't get me started on the mixed messages that is sending):
Owl cupcakes. Aren't they soooooo cute? They would be cuter if I could take a decent photo in my kitchen at 10:30 at night.
So for us, today: class party. Tomorrow: trick or treating. Sunday: Diwali party. And no football games. I'm putting my party shoes on now and not taking them off until Monday!
