Cactus and Senior Nacho. They won best costume. The cactus was a sweatsuit with weed eater string hot glued all to it. Genius.
And I bet you didn't know that Amelia Earhart and Jack Bauer are engaged.
As you can tell from the pictures Hannah's house was all decked out for the party. They had spider webs EVERYWHERE. She even changed out her art for some scary pictures. It was great. Unfortunately this is the only picture of the decorations I have, the food table. What else would you expect from a fake pregnant woman.
Can't wait until next year, I've already got our costumes planned.

I also made these for the party last weekend. I used Kale to make them appear to be pumpkins in a pumpkin patch.
Monday night I turned our crescent rolls into witches hats.
Last night we had "Dinner At Twilight". Which was really just steaks, but I couldn't think of a Halloween name and the Cullen's, in the book Twilight (for all of those that live under a rock), only eat animals not humans so Eric thought to call it "Dinner At Twilight". That and he put a dimmer on the dining room light yesterday, so we put in on low like Twilight. Tonight we are having "Goblin Brains & Eyeballs" (spaghetti), Thursday we are having "Shredded Flesh" (pulled pork), and Friday we are having Mummy Hot dogs.
And to me it wouldn't be Halloween with out Chili no matter how hot an Alabama Halloween is.

We made these Southern Living topiaries one year at my parents' house and they were adorable!
I LOVE of pumpkins. If I could afford it I would have tons. All shapes, sizes and colors.
Love the skeleton!
I love Martha's tissue pom poms and think an orange one added in would be great. Here is a great tutorial to make your own.
One fall we grew mini gourds and had a lot of success so hopefully pumpkins will be the same?
One of my favorite websites to check everyday is One Pretty Thing. They are especially great to check out during the holidays. Tons of ideas.
Another great site is Women's Day for Halloween Ideas, they have some adorable carving ideas.

Click here for the article. I'm on page 4, but page 1 also has something special to look at.
Who needs Photoshop or mad artistic skills when you have Microsoft Paint.

I also bought Christmas table cloth for $3.75 and plant holder thingy for only $9.
Bow season just started here so Eric will be no where in sight until dark for the next few days, weeks & months. If he supports his hobbies, I must support my as well.

Eric & I have a costume party to go to on the 24th. I thought I had our costumes figured out Juno & Bleeker from the movie Juno
So what else could we be? I don't really want to buy something. Most anything for sale is extra trashy anyway, but I need something quick to make.
I thought about a witch but what would Eric be? Then I thought about maybe Bonnie & Clyde or Charlie Brown & Lucy. I could make a Lucy dress and a Charlie Brown shirt would be pretty simple.
Or I guess we could always be hobos. What person didn't use that costume at least once as a kid? So give me your suggestions please!!
Halloween 2008 Ugly Betty (had to take advantage of the braces) & Cowboy (boring)
