Catching up with Blogland

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.  

Here's my "Boo" dressed up in a Canada shirt.
Here's my "Punkin" in his outfit from China.
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.

Materials: Styrofoam ball, Soda bottle, Cheesecloth, Wire,  Tape and Aleene's Stiffen Quik
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.
All done!

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.

Newspaper puree and some dollar store trinkets cut up
and you now have Owl Pellets!

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!
