I wanted ya'll to see that VERY rarely - I do wear pants! :-)
I received the sweetest e-mail from Kara last week that meant so much to me and this week she sent me these two precious onesies. You can't tell in the picture - but that is pink writing and I'm thinking I'm going to make a cute little pink tutu that she can wear with these. That one on the left could not be more true - I cried when I saw it!
One of my friends I grew up, Kathy Estes, sent me a package today also. She made me two of the neatest scrapbook albums. I can't believe all the time and effort she put into making these for me!
I've always heard of neighborhoods playing but last night I opened up the front door before bed to let Dawson take a last minute potty break and there was a bag filled with candy on my doorstep. I have to take that ghost picture and put it near my door or in a window to mark that I've been "boo'd" and then make 2 copies of the instructions and the ghost and 2 little Halloween goodie bags and drop them off at any 2 houses that haven't been "boo'd" tonight after dark. So fun! I've got to get my bags fixed so I can take them tonight. You don't know who does it to you. Scott's already been digging into the candy we got!
Well - I gotta scoot - It's 7 and I haven't even cooked dinner. Luckily I've discovered the fine art of fast and easy stir fry! :-)
P.S. A lot of you are asking so here is the poem that goes on the instruction sheet - You can type it up and decorate with pumpkins to make it festive! You could just go on-line and find a picture of a ghost and use that as what you pass out if you are going to get this started!
The phantom ghost has come to town,
To leave you some goodies, I see you have found.
His wish is for participation for all,
so continue this greeting, the "phantom" call.
Make 2 treats, 2 phantom's and 2 notes like this.
Deliver them to neighbors who may have been missed.
Don't let them see you, be sneaky, be quick.
Your neighbors are sure to enjoy this Halloween trick!
Post this Phantom Ghost where it can be seen,
And leave it on a window or door until Halloween.
This will scare other phantoms who may wish to visit.
We want to spread the treats so all will get it.
You have only one day to act - so be quick!
Leave them at doors where the Phantom hasn't hit.
Deliver at dark when there is no light......
Ring the doorbell and run out of sight!
And last, but not least, come join the season,
It's all to be neighborly and no other reason.
Be cool, have fun, and remember don't be seen........
Let's share in the fun of Halloween!
