Halloween is just around the corner….

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I bought bags of candy to give away and have loaded up on decorations to put out to spook the neighborhood kids. 😉 Todd is enjoying the candy I bought. I’m scared to go see how much he has swiped. The dude has a wicked sweet tooth.

  1. Lately Sunday is catch up day…and I never quite get there. I remember when, in the not so distant past, we used to all get up and go to church and then out to eat with friends or back to our house with friends. I used to complain because we had to get up so early to get ready on time and we were always right on the wire. I miss those days. Since we moved out of town, we’ve become antisocial and it’s a shame. Sunday was always the day to have people over for a nice meal…of course, for me as the chief cook, it was a lot of work.

    I’m going to take a page from Samantha’s book today and do what I want…after I straighten the house.

    Brit – finished a story this morning!

  4. Thanks, Samantha for the links. I can’t wait to check them out. However, I’ll do it tomorrow. I had company for dinner tonight and I’m beat. Yep, Brit when you’re the chief cook, having guests’ over is a lot of work. But it was worth it. My DH did a great job with a chicken on his BBQ and I made this cookies and cream cake that was to die for. Yummy food shared with good friends. That’s what I call a nice Sunday evening.

  5. Hi,
    I went in to the site and put your puzzle together. It was great fun but when I tired to send Sam an email it wouldn’t go through.
    I thought you ought to know that.
    Love your site,
    Donna
