Happy Halloween

As I have mentioned before, Halloween was not really one of my favorite holidays.  There was the time I was jumped for my candy and the time that I dressed up like Olivia Newton John when I was in elementary school (where a boy tried to tease me and I gave him a good whack!). 

AND there was the Halloween where I almost poisoned myself.  Bleach inhalation!  I was the new girl at school...middle school to be exact.  The popular group there was very strong and I was intimidated.  Preppy was in...and then I entered...I had the classic Farrah Fawcet flippy hair and wore Def Leppard concert shirts.  I made friends quickly enough, but a life-long friendship was forged or shall I say stained that October.  Marcia was charming and pretty and she invited me to her Halloween party.  In order to give me a costume, I decided to bleach my jeans...go all Madonna.  Well, sitting over a tub filled with bleach can really go to your head. Never mind wearing the jeans. Marcia and her mom needed to take care of me a bit that day.  I think I was pretty memorable...even if it wasn't in the best way.  She still tells a great story about that day.  But from that day on, Marcia and I were always together!

So I guess Halloween isn't all that bad!  I actually have found a new appreciation for it being a mom.  The kids get so excited...they had a school event on Friday so the costumes have already gotten good use:

No fairy or princess here!  Ella is a leather (well, vinyl) clad Batgirl.  Can you tell that Nathan picked out her costume?  And she looks up to him enough to keep it?  I didn't mind because it will go great with Pink Paislee's Hocus Pocus...

Speaking of Pink Paislee, I am up at the blog today!  Sharing this layout along with a sketch...

I used Hocus Pocus here...which is a fab collection!  Go check out the blog for details and be sure to leave me some love.  Everyone needs love right?

Hope you have a memorable Halloween!
