Wow! Where has the time gone? Between Halloween parties, United Nations Day, Potlucks, Trick-or-treating and a Fundraiser Golf Tournament for the school, I'm feeling a little tuckered out.
I haven't been crafting all the much lately, but I do have some pictures to share.
Last week, the boys had a wonderful United Nations Day celebration at their school. It was a fun time for them to dress up and sing songs.

We were supposed to bring a savory dish from any country we desire. I am all out of creative juices for the time being, so I just brought pigs in a blanket and ham rolls. I know it's not much on the savory part, but it was quick and easy to make.
Next we moved into Halloween parties. I did make a little ghost for the occasion.
This was super easy to make and I'm sure I can figure a way to make something like a Turkey for Thanksgiving out of the leftover cheesecloth. Guess I'll have to get on that soon.

Drape cheesecloth and spray. It takes about 3-4 spray and dries to get it to stiffen.
|Next I decorated with black felt and glue.|
We played games, won prizes, ate super yummy food and shared smiles for the evening. I made Owl Pellets for one of the prizes. Martha Stewart gives a great tutorial and label printout here.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun-filled weekend! Now it's time to start decorating and dinner planning for Thanksgiving! My favorite Holiday of all!
