Here comes Halloween!

Those of you who know me, know how much I love fall. Quite frankly, I'm a little late in the game this year. I usually start decorating for autumn July 25th. The past few weeks have been a little busy...refer to previous post...so I haven't had time to "trim" the home til now.
Anyway, today, in all my fall/halloween/harvest time giddiness I completed three costumes...a spider, a cheetah and a black cat.
My PIC's (partners in crime...Karissa and Jen...aka sassy mama and hottie tottie) are just as excited as I for the upcoming holiday it appears. This morning we all went to Wally's and bought boat loads of tulle to make tutu's for our girlies. Except for a slightly achey back and the occasional twinge of pain in my metacarpals (from all of the tulle cutting) I had a great time today making tutu's for the girl's costumes. I shall post pics soon.
I really must have gotten caught up in all the Halloween excitement because last night I bought four costumes. And then today I purchased ten, pumpkin soup bowls, a large pumpkin soup tourine, and a pumpkin pie plate.
Mum's the word on this most recent purchase. I have been forbidden by the ol' man from buying anymore dishes. A little tip...if you leave your unfavorable purchases in the trunk of the car or at a PIC's house for a week or two, then you don't have to blatantly lie when the ol' man asks, for example, if those pumpkin bowls are new. I can confidently look him in the eye and say, "actually, no babe, I've had them for a while...but thanks for noticing". Buhlieve me when I say this tip's a life saver.
I know it's a little early for some of you...but, HAPPY HALLOWEENIE, anyway.

I love Halloween more than Christmas!! I actually do have more fall decorations than winter ones. Great minds think alike! I also think Nightmare Before Christmas is one of the best movies EVER...

I guess I didn't know you were so domestic... I should of figured by how cute your house is and your kids always look. You are definately putting me in the Halloween spirit. I think I should start decorating myself. Emily

Costumes were wonderful. I was just wondering if you are safe making confessions on your blog about keeping secrets from your hubby. Does he never read what you write? Just curious...

Hello, just me.
Cindy, sadly (or luckily, depending on how you see it) Chad has never visited my blog. And like I say, that may be a good thing for all the "secrets" I share.
