Halloween Week

Well, my due date has officially come and gone; and I'm still here.
I'm still doing pretty good (minus the occasional meltdown). And I had a great weekend with my two boys. Now we're just gearing up for Halloween. H is so excited. We're doing everything we can to make it super fun this year. Here are a few projects (via Martha Stewart) that we'll be keeping busy with this week:

Hudson loves to help make halloween decorations, so these Halloween Hangups will be the perfect after-school project.

I doubt we'll have many trick-or-treaters on our street; but Hudson and I are going to make some special goody bags for his buddies.

I doubt I'll be up for throwing a Halloween party this year; but I love these all-black candy jars with matching labels. I'll have to file this one under "parties to have when I'm not about to explode."

I think these popcorn witches would be so much fun for H's school party.

As always, I can count on Martha for some project inspiration. Especially when I need to keep my hands and my mind busy these days. I'll be back later on this week with other fun Halloween projects.

Oh my goodness, well she's going to be a nice big happy healthy Scorpio!
(one of my favorite signs--my dad was born right before Halloween). Hope you're having fun with Hudson.

At least your not a month late like my mom was. I cant imagine having a baby inside of me for longer than 9! BTW: That's a great idea for a label. :)
