Boo! It's Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!

I had a whole different post written and ready for today about how we were doing nothing for Halloween this year. Doug was away on a deer hunt, and I have about 50 things to do before leaving for California again this weekend {for something fun this time: my nephew's wedding!}.


October 2012 was a bit of a bust for me. I had a few Halloween packages made up, envelopes addressed, and they never made it into the mail. These little goodies in the photos are a few that did make it out - I made Halloween treat bags for my grandma and uncle. I wonder when was the last time either of them wore a spider ring? ;o)

Unfortunately for Doug, {and fortunately for the deer} he returned from his hunt two days early empty handed. Well, except for a cool antler shed he found, and three heart shaped rocks - which makes it a successful hunt in my opinion. 


We weren't going to carve pumpkins this year, but as soon as Carrie knew that Doug would be home in time, she insisted that we do it. So, I bought a couple of pumpkins so that each of them had their own to carve, and I sat out this year. {Dumb shoulder issues still, and I had a cake to bake last night.}
 

So, this is my random Halloween post, quite a bit different than I originally planned, but that's alright by me.

It's been a very different kind of October, indeed.
But November? Well now that's gonna' be a different story.
Ima 'bout to make it amazing!

Fun pumpkins - and yes, heart rocks makes for a far more successful hunt in my opinion! xx

So glad Doug came home early and you were able to enjoy the last of the month a bit!

Halloween is the kind of holiday that suits random perfectly! It's just got that kind of a feel to it so I think this is a lovely post.

The thought of him bringing the heart shaped rocks home - that's perfect

Great pumpkins....and I agree....heart shaped stones are the best hunting trophies.

They're pumpkins with character! Glad he is safely home and I am a little glad for the deer that they eluded him. Looking forward to hearing more about the Amazing November :).

Deb you are amazing, and by the way, sounds like you have an amazing hubby and daughter too. Happy Halloween.

Karen said...

It's been several years since we carved a pumpkin. The squirrels carved ours this year! They ate through three of them. Happy Halloween, and safe travels to California.

Margaret said...

Sounds like a nice Halloween. We are having one too.

Susan said...

Your Mom must be so proud of you!

Amy said...

Yep, October 2012 has been a strange month, you look to have finished it well!

We managed to go to a friend's house for Halloween. It was nice for Paul to get out of the house! I'd been really looking forward to Dias de los Muertos, but I have no place to put up an altar. Sad about that.

Can I ask what those stripey things are in the bags? I keep seeing them on American Halloween themed stuff but I have no idea what it is and why it is relevant to Halloween! They look like great bags too and I NEED some of those metal edged tags!

The pumpkins look great. Heart shaped stones sounds like a much better end to a hunt to me.

I love this product my very good friend who

is a hairstylist recommended this to me and I have loved it. It's a great product. I have always had naturally curly hair and frizzy when I have dried to round brush it straight. With 1-2 pumps my hair is

silky smooth! The smell also is very nice! I always hated stinky hair products and this one I do not mind at all smelling. It has been a wonderful product for me so far. I've had it now for about 2 weeks

now.
