Halloween 2010

I'm feeling especially festive this Halloween.  I believe, this is my second favorite holiday, directly after Thanksgiving.

Abby, what big ears you have. . . . .

Better to hear you with, my dear.        

Last Saturday, I felt a cold coming on.  Ugh.  It was a doozy.  All I have to say is, Nyquil is my friend.    I felt better after the hub came home from Asia; so much so that I went to dinner with a nice colleague of the hub's and his wife.  They are from Texas, so you know they're nice.  But, I got sick directly after dinner.  Stomach.  UGH.  We had planned on listening to some live music after dinner, but I was in no shape.  I shooed them on and drove home as quickly as I could.  UGH.  And so, chicken soup was in order for the entire family.

 And it sure was good.  The boys had grilled cheese with theirs. 

Some decorating was done today.  Just a little fun stuff.  I finally finished the hanging post cards that Beth and I found on our way home from Knoxville.  I just added a little glitter here and there to jazz 'em up a tad.

And my favorite pumpkin in the whole world.  I adore him!  My bestest friend, Amy, brought him home from Riverside last year.  Awwwwww.
The hub and kid, hard at work carving their pumpkins.

I so loved this pic from last Halloween, I had to bring it back.


And later that night . . . 

These are my great (eeeeek!) nephews and niece.  Aren't they great?!!!!  I miss you all, very much.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Happy Halloween (one day late) to you too dear Rosa:-) I loveeee all of your Halloween decor!! I couldn't decorate as much as I usually do because of the ongoing living room renovations so I really missed it. No doubt the trick or treaters enjoyed going to your place for their treats:-) Hope you feel 100% better real soon!! xoxo
