Halloween Decor: Haunted Front Porch

Halloween rocked this year. The spooky spirits were flying high on our street and we had a great time. My sis, nephew, mom and dad came over to hang out and help create my haunted front porch. My sis and I rocked out our witch hats. We are both pretty much Halloween freaks.

I served vampire cupcakes to the neighborhood kids and they were a hit! Then I invited them to reach in and feel our brain and eyeball specimens.

I set the mood with cobwebs that wrapped the porch, candles and a thunder and lightening strobe-light and noise machine. One of the fun parts to having a boy at Halloween is they love gross stuff, so Walker thought it was cool and so did all of the boys in our neighborhood!

I'd say the whole evening was a success. Walker's candy bag was so full after about an hour of trick-or-treating that he handed it to me and asked me if I would carry it because it was so heavy!

Oh, and Mike and my dad were happy campers because they got to sit and watch football all night while we goofed around on the porch and played Halloween all night! Win win for all!

Until next year, my pretties!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
