Halloween ideas

A few more Halloween ideas for you...
 Our fun pumpkins this year.  A star cruiser... from Buzz Lightyear.  And the Death Star... from Star Wars.

We made 'ghosts in the graveyard' for dessert.  (pudding/cool whip mix with crushed oreos and 'tombstones' for decorations)  Google it... you'll find several recipes to choose from.
The kids love it!

We also do this every year... but I don't have a picture. 
We buy dry ice from the grocery store (get there early... it sells out fast)
and put it in colored water (or just water).
The boys love playing with the 'fog' that comes off of it.
They call it secret potion.
We also use the dry ice to make homemade rootbeer.

Halloween Bags

I'm either a tad late for Halloween 2010,
or I'm really early for Halloween 2011... you pick.  

I made this fun halloween treat bags this year.  
The boys loved taking them trick or treating with them.

They were a lot of fun to make and pretty simple.
I just found a simple bag tutorial online and then added my picture cut outs on the front.

Display your child's schoolwork

I have been taking pictures of my recent projects... but they haven't been making it on here yet.  Over the next few days, hopefully I'll get some of them posted.

I was quickly getting a mound of papers from my son's preschool class.  He was so proud of them, I had to display them. 

So I put them up in his room with a simple wire, a few nails and some clothes line clips.

I plan to take digital pictures of my favorite pieces.  Then I can toss the actual paperwork and always have the artwork in my digital files.

Less clutter for the New Year!
