Happy Halloween everyone!We are having a Trunk or Treat with 2 other wards who meet in our building. My daughters and I are doing one of the trunks too.. we have it set up as an ocean to go fishing in. My shower curtain is over the back of the van and we made little fish and stuff to hang by it. The kids will come along and one of us will give them a 'fishing rod' and line. We throw the line over the curtain, and one of the kids will use the clothespin/bait, to clip on a treat. =) Then she will tug on the line and the little kid pulls the rod to get their candy. =)
I am excited about doing it.
We also have this mechanical 'monster' guy who sings Michael Jackson's Thriller and he dances too. He is going to be resting by the water and we taped a snorkel to his mouth! LOL!!! I will take photos. =)
I finished my BLOG SCARF!!!
How are the rest of you coming along? I ended up making it nearly 5' long (it's 57" or so). Wraps around my neck nicely and tucks into a coat. Hope someone can make good use of it as it's really turned out so cool looking! (If I do say so myself!)
And Cookie was quite happy to pose next to it! It is so warm with the sock yarn doubled up with various worsted weight yarns. I will have to make more items like that. I think I will try self striping sock yarn, and maybe plain white for baby hats. =)
Well, I told the kids I was going to relax today and make some baby booties for our newborn kits for UMC and I have barely started on that and it's 11:30 am already! They will be home in a couple of hours, and then HALLOWEEN will start I guess. Costumes, candy, trick or treaters-- there will still be a few even though we are having Trunk or treat. Our little valley is a really safe place to be, especially our neighborhood, so trick or treating is still done.
HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE and CHECK THEIR CANDY before they eat it.
