The day before was the kids' Halloween parties and parade at school. Mason was a skeleton and Annabelle was a pirate.
And our traditional photo in front of the little maple we planted a few years ago...
The weather held out but it was cold! Some friends trick-or-treated with us, and we had a lot of fun. Our development is new and has a *ton* of kids, so it's always hopping on Halloween. There's a family that owns a bakery and they always give out huge, beautifully decorated cookies. For some reason the kids don't like them so Dave and I are in luck!
I've been sewing on the binding of my Christmas quilt. I love doing that, I know some people don't but it's so relaxing to me, to sit on the couch with a cozy quilt on my lap while I'm actually doing something productive. I get a bit done at a time so I should be done in a few days...I'm not in a rush. Today I took down the Halloween decorations...can't wait to get the Christmas ones out in a few weeks!
Oh, check out this cute little lamp I got last week. It's made from an antique bobbin, and it's got a sweet silicone candle bulb.
Cute, right? And I didn't think $6.99 was bad at all. The shop where I got it (Goose and Gander, no website that I know of) has the nicest stuff. It's dangerous.
Enjoy your day!
