Halloween 2012!!!

Hey everyone! Happy Thursday! And welcome to November!!!

Wow, the time seems to fly by faster than I can think. It seems the older I get, the more days seem to fly by faster and faster. My children are growing way to fast and I wish things could slow down and be savored a bit more. As a November 1st thankful moment, I'm thankful for the blessings God has given me and the time He gives us to enjoy each moment...even if they do fly by too least we have them to begin with!!!

Anyways, just wanted to share our Halloween costumes! I decided to make our costumes this year in hopes of saving some money...I think it worked because I didn't spend more than $20!!! Woot woot to me! LOL...
Lance was a Dalmatian dog. He had a circus at school and we wouldn't have time to change into a different costume, so he wore the same thing from school to trick-or-treat...I painted his face in the morning and did a  few touch ups after school and colored circles on a plain white long sleeve shirt. Made ears & tail out of felt and safety pins. The entire costume cost me $5.
Adam was a John Deere Farmer. We had the overalls, shirt and hat in stock. Spray panted & painted a cardboard box. Added ribbon and wheels and a cylinder. Entire costume cost us $3.50. He got so many compliments! I was so proud of my little tractor driver! LOL...
Jack was the old man from the movie "UP"...this is one of my favorite movies! I ordered the bow-tie off for $7.00. Had the rest of the outfit. Bought 4 balloons and had some cake dowels & tennis balls lying around. I bought a pair of glasses from the $ store for a buck...entire costume came to about $10...I think he looks priceless! But then again, I am sort of
Anyways, hope you all had a fabulous October and find many many blessings to be thankful for during November! I know I can definitely fill my month up with thanks!!!

Until next time...
