And these were the winners of our costume contest: Tag team wrestlers!!!!
Earlier in the week we broke out our pumpkins and did some carving! This is always a super gross messy affair, but this time around we wore latex gloves and used a linoleum cutter. Here is how they came out.
I also made some vampire pumpkins! They vant to suck your pumpkin juice!
This past week at work I helped the kids get in the holiday 'spirit' in a program focused on the Day of the Dead. We talked about the holiday and some of its traditions and we made our own sugar skull masks.
I've also been doing non-halloween crafts. I found a bunch of wooden planks in the garage and decided to put them to good use. After some sanding and staining I made a stencil and spray painted. I thought these little signs came out so good that I put them up on Etsy and made them available as custom orders featuring a family name. To my surprise I received multiple orders in one day. I still have plenty of planks to make more so get 'em while they are hot!
They day after our party we welcomed a new addition into our household, B-mo! Last week I went into the pet store to get dog food when I fell in love with this little guy. I was a little surprised that I did because I'm not a cat person at all. I've mostly had dogs growing up. My mom did have a few cats and they were jerks. But this guy wasn't like any cat that I've ever met before. He has such a great personality and is quite the mush. We named him B-mo (after the computer from adventure time) He is adjusting quite nicely, very cuddly and loves to perch.
