Witch Halloween Party

Today I am sharing the darling printable I framed and gave to each of the girls at our I Scream You Scream Witch Halloween Party. I loved this quote when I found it.  It was the perfect message I wanted to share with the girls.  I wanted them to know that no matter what the world might tell them,  if they will just believe in themselves, they can accomplish whatever they want! I continued my Wizard of Oz analogy with this quote and talked about the scarecrow, tin man and [Continue Reading...]

Witch Hallloween Party

One of the gifts  I gave to my Activity Day Girls at our I Scream You Scream Witch Halloween Party were these cute Oreo Witch Shoes. I had originally seen the idea over at Quilt Taffy  who had made Oreo Elf Shoes.  I pinned the idea thinking some year they would be a fun Christmas gift for my neighbors.  Then I saw that my friend Kristi had shared a witch shoe version over at Dairy of Dave’s Wife.  I changed the pattern up a bit to make my own version of Oreo Witch Shoes.

I am a big fan of Halloween and even though my husband and I are now empty nesters we celebrate up big.  Since I no longer have children at home to plan costumes for I have talked my husband into dressing up with me for Halloween.  He’s a good guy.  Last year I got him to be Popeye! You can see some of our past costumes here.   I’ll be unveiling this year’s couple costume on September 26th! Each year we host a Halloweenie Roast for our neighbor kids.  It is [Continue Reading...]

We never dressed up when the kids were home but now that I don’t have to make and put together costumes for four kids I can do it for us! I think half the fun for me is deciding what famous couple we are going [Continue Reading...]
