Another Halloween coming to an end....

Happy Halloween!!!! I just love Halloween in a small town. Everyone comes out with the kids and goes from house to house. You get to see people you don't normally see on a day to day bases. It is also good to know the people who give my children candy.

Every Halloween needs a WITCH.

And here she is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lovely... hee,hee....

Here is Bryce.. you're never to old to trick or treat.....

Here is Hiccup and the Black Cat.

Here were the goodies for the Jr. High football team with the spirit of Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!!!!!!
I hope each and everyone of you had a safe holiday.

Love, Erin

I finally have something to add !!!!

With teaching school, taking kids to soccer practice, coaching Jr. High cheerleaders, and watching my son playing football, I have little time for my crafts.

Crafting gives a sense of peace. Doing your own thing, creating your own world.

This is what I got to do one evening when I had a spare 30 minutes.

Before school started, I was asked to paint a old chalk board in our teacher's lounge. So of course, I said yes. At the time I thought I was crazy. I was spending more time in there painting than getting my classroom ready. However, everything came together as usual. I'm glad I did it. It turned out great. My inspiration came from a Mary Engelbreit teacher's planning book.

My son participated in a food show for 4H today. We were to bring a gift for the four judges. At the last minute, I purchased 4 jars from Wally World. I cut some of my scrapbook paper and glued it on. Threw on a few embellishments and it was done. Added some candy and I think it turned out pretty good.

I am joining ME Monday over at Cherry Chick... check it out here!!!

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!

October 5 is my birthday. Yes I will be.... wait, I'm not telling my age. I have taken the day off from work for just a me day. I'm thinking about spending my day in the craft room....

Do you remember your birthday parties when you were young? I remember one where the movie ET and Annie had came out at the same time. My nephew (4 years younger than me) and I had gotten to see both movies. I loved Annie, and he loved ET. Well, at my birthday party I had gotten all kinds of Annie goodies. But the one thing that stands out in my mind is the album I received with all the songs from the movie. I played that record over and over. Now we are in an age of Ipods. Kids don't even remember records or cassettes. I did ask my kids in class if they new what a typewriter looked liked. A few had seen one. Wow, I must be getting really old... Three more years and I will be hitting the 40 mark. Oops, I told my age!!!

Thank you Lord for allowing me to have 37 wonderful years!!
