Halloween Costumes – Throwback Thursday

It’s Halloween Costumes – Throwback Thursday time. Here are a few of the costumes I’ve made for the kids over the past few years. J-Man was just the cutest dressing up as the Purple Wiggle and riding in his Big Red Car. Sissy loved being a cheerleader that year.

I have to admit I’m pretty impressed with the Yoshi costume and the Mega Man costume I threw together. Also, Sissy made the green dress in the bottom right picture. She’s a much better costume designer than I will ever be.

Join me next week for a way-back Throwback Thursday for pictures of our older daughters Halloween costumes. This was before digital cameras and I have to dig out the actual photographs, find the pictures, and scan them. How did we ever manage before digital cameras and our cell phones.

It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Halloween

It’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween around our house. It’s one of my favorite holidays and I’m always looking for fun, inexpensive, and not too scary Halloween decorations.

To save money I’ve picked up a few items at yard sales, but my favorite place is the Christmas Tree Shops. They have just tons of Halloween supplies and decorations. It’s so much fun looking through everything.

The kids had fun helping my put up out kitty-cat caution tape. I guess it looks pretty real from a distance because one of our neighbors asked why we had police tape on our windows. My husband had to explain that it was just part of our Halloween decorations. I can only imagine what they were thinking.


I love the lights on the mantle. It makes everything looks so warm and cozy at night.

If you celebrate Halloween, what kind of decorations do you put out? Creepy or cute?

This isn’t a sponsored post. I just love a bargain ;)

Kitten Meow Monday

Kitten Meow Monday

Seriously, nothing is cuter than a kitten. They are totally irresistible. I’ve been really good this year and haven’t brought any foster kittens home, but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying them at work. It’s still kitten season and Lollypop Farm has lots of kittens available for adoption.

To make your Monday complete, here are a few pictures of kittens from last week.




Keeping with the kitten theme, Meet Lavender, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.


Lavender is a 2 month old female domestic shorthair kitten. She’s all ready to come home with you! Come meet her and all her feline friends at Lollypop Farm!

Halloween Decorating Meow Monday Style

Halloween Decorating Meow Monday Style

If you have even one cat, you know how much they love to help with everything! My cats want to help me with folding laundry, homework, and decorating. I know it’s a little early for Halloween decorating but I totally love Halloween and couldn’t wait to get out the decorations. The first thing I did was plug in my strand of candy corn colored lights. Of course, the cats were very curious and more than happy to check them out and play with them.

Meet Sunny, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week


Sunny is a 6 year old male domestic shorthair mix who comes complete with extra toes! He’s a laid back, affectionate fellow who seems to be OK with other cats, dogs, and kids. He likes to play with string, have his cheeks scratched, and keep an eye on the world out the window. He’s been hanging out n one of our offices because he came in with a leg injury which is now on the mend. Ask to meet Sunny at our adoption desk. He’ll be very glad to meet you!
