Happy Halloween!

Hello, hello, hello! :) How are you? Hope that you had a very happy (and safe!) Halloween! I sure did! I just LOVE Halloween! It is such a fun holiday! We had a very full weekend, but it was a lot of fun! The good news is that there was a lot of chocolate to be had...the bad news is that I am pretty certain that I have eaten my weight in chocolate this weekend! LOL Good thing Halloween only comes once a year! I wanted to share some pictures with you guys! My Home school group had a party and I made some little treats for everyone. I made 70 of these little Smarties packets! They were super easy! I got the idea from a wonderful fellow demonstrator (Hiya Carolyn!!) and changed it up a bit! She put pixie sticks in hers. I shrunk mine down and used Smarties! I also made several of the bigger ones and stuffed them with Hershey's bars...Yummmm-o! I crimped my paper and used brads to hold the pocket in place. I added a little stamped goody (I used Stampin Up!s Batty for You) to each one and tied it with a contrasting ribbon. These went together very quick and are just so adorable :) I think these would make cute Christmas gifts too with a change of color in paper and image of course! I am also including some pictures from our weekend!











My hubby the Nerd! He was too cute! You couldn't see it in the picture, but he had a tiny little Alphafa sprout on the top of his head! :)



Daniel as an Oval Referee!



Hannah as a Goth Warrior!



Tyler as a cowgirl with her trusty Chihuahua sidekick Bear!



Kids and I! Notice my black eye...you should have seen the other guy! Giggles! :)

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back soonest with more fun stuff to share! Have a wonderful night! :)
