The blog hasn’t been as quiet as it might have been since I planned some posts to go love while we were away. I didn’t expect it to be so quiet when we returned, but as always after being away for nearly two weeks I returned with a long to-do list, and a miserable cold as well. I shouldn’t complain because I don’t remember the last time I was ill, but it definitely has slowed me down.
I have to admit that Halloween has never been one of my favorite holidays. I have a few Halloween decorations I put out each year, and I loved getting together costumes for Sarah and Matt when they were little, but otherwise it leaves me rather uninspired.
This year I was determined to come up with more age-appropriate cards for Caleb and Skylar than I managed last year. When I saw this cute ghost during one of Papertrey's recent releases, I grabbed it, and I'm glad I did. The card design is lifted from one of Maile Belles' always creative designs.
I love that the little bow can be a hair bow---
or a bow tie.
I found the perfect Halloween board book for two year olds at Barnes and Noble. I'm quite sure they'll love it.
The story is in rhyming verse, there are doors to open to see who is there, but the best is a door bell you press to hear the trick 0r treaters arrive at your house. If you celebrate this holiday, I hope it's filled with treaters and not many tricks!
