HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! What a great night for trick or treating. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect…it was 70 degrees outside today! I can’t remember the last time we had a nice Halloween and it wasn’t freezing cold. The boys had so much fun tonight. This was the first Halloween that they really enjoyed running up to the houses, knocking on the doors, and getting candy from everyone. They said ‘trick or treat!’ at every house and even ended with a thank you!!! I was so proud of them. By the end of the night they were saying, “Thanks! Have a good night!” It was hilarious.

I love these little goof balls!

Speaking of goof balls…that would be my granny with a witch hat/wig on and my mother peeking over her shoulder!

Notice Bonus checking out his bag of goodies! They could barely keep their hands out of the sacks. 🙂

We had a great night. Both boys complained of a belly ache. That’s a great sign that we got plenty of candy and should be on a sugar high for the next 12 months. Hahaha

I’m off to do a little work before get my beauty rest. Don’t forget to stop by http://www.diecutcrazymag.com for our blog hop tomorrow!! There’s going to be lots of goodies to be given away! Tell all your friends and check out details on the website.

Hey there! Tonight I needed to make a quick gift for two special little girls, Avery and Amanda. At first I thought card…I love cards, but what do kids want? Candy of course…especially on Halloween! So, I went with this tag from Silhouette (free image) and revamped it! I had fun with these. I love the candy corn colors…that’s my favorite part. I sprayed them with my glitter spray (which I also love) and stitched the outside edges. I told you I’d be going stitch crazy…I wasn’t lying! 🙂

photo 2I didn’t have any decorative treat bags on hand, so I cut off the zip lock part of a sandwich bag and voila…the perfect treat bag! I’m sure they will rip off the tag and go straight for the candy, but at least I think it’s cute!!

Thanks for checking in with me. Everyone have a safe and spooktacular Halloween! I’ll post pictures of the boys in their costumes tomorrow night.

Today was a nice day. It was the first day this week that everyone was home all day together. I loved it. We ate together, played together, and worked together. It was fabulous. I crafted for a bit today. Have I mentioned how much I love having my own space? My table is in front of a window, so I opened the curtains and let the sunlight in while I worked on some stuff…it was awesome.

Here’s a card I finished up.

I wanted to do something that used up some of my left over scraps from other projects. I already had this leaf image on my Silhouette Studio…it must have been on there when I got my cameo or was a free download…either way I was glad to see it on there when I needed it! Again, I used my sewing machine on the borders. I love incorporating it into my paper crafts. Such a neat idea….I can’t wait to experiment with this more.

I took the boys to trunk or treat tonight. They’re on the count down to how many days left before Halloween! We’ve been learning about days of the week in school, so this has been fun with Halloween approaching. Bonus was super shy and it took him about 10 minutes to finally get warmed up to the idea of being around so many unfamiliar people. Ultimately, the  idea of not getting any candy sunk in and he was ready to go. The boys looked so cute in their costumes. I didn’t get any great pictures tonight, so you’ll have to wait until Thursday to see what they are! Oh the anticipation!!

Jerms is off tomorrow, so I’m looking forward to another great day with my hubs. I better get some sleep…my alarm is set to go off bright and early tomorrow. Jeremy is already snoozing away…it’s rare that he’s ever asleep before me!

Enjoy your Monday!!

What a beautiful Saturday! The weather was perfect today. The boys had a chance to spend some time outside playing and we put out some extra Halloween decorations. It felt like fall today and not winter! It was a nice change from the cold days we’ve had lately.

I didn’t get as much work done today as I hoped too, but a little work is better than none. I know it’ll get done…just not as quickly as I’d like. The boys have really enjoyed Marley being here this weekend…they sure do love their sissy. She’s probably the best big sister ever. I mean, what teenager wants to hang out with a 4 and 5 year old? I’m sure they get on her nerves, but she plays with them and makes them laugh. They love her so much.

I don’t really have a lot to share tonight. We had a pretty uneventful day. Right now we’re watching a documentary about people who love to decorate their yard/house for Halloween. It’s interesting to say the least. I’m telling ya what people….it’s getting crazy on this Saturday night at the Shock house. 🙂

Oh my goodness. I am back from my trip and I feel exhausted. It’s taken me a minute to get caught up on sleep and get motivated to do anything. I just want to relax. Tomorrow starts back on my normal routine. I did get some work done on the magazine today, but for the most part I’ve been trying to get laundry caught up and stuff around the house done.

We ordered the boys Halloween costumes yesterday! They are getting really excited about Halloween this year. I think they are finally at the ages where it’ll be fun to see everyone in their costumes and hopefully not be so shy when going up to doors. They are supposed to have a carnival here in town. I don’t know a specific date yet, but when the boys find that out they’ll be ecstatic. Bonus is always talking about how he wants to go to a real carnival!!

Erica Gibson took some pictures of the boys today. I can’t wait to see how they turned out! She had the cutest fall decor setup with hay bells, pumpkins, and mums. I wanted to load it up and bring it to my yard! I love having a photographer for a friend. The boys are comfortable with her and it makes it so much easier when it comes to photos. We tried to get her son Foster to get in a few pics, but he was not having it today!  Make sure and check out her website. She has some really great photos on there!! Maybe you’ll even come across some of us! 🙂

I’m off to bed. I have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow. Glad to be back home and back to regular life. I missed Jeremy and the boys so much. Makes me thankful for them even more.
