Flashback Friday – Halloween Costumes

I hate crafts and hate being called crafty but every year I do love to make Halloween costumes for the kids. For this Flashback Friday it’s a trip down memory lane to when our two oldest daughters were little and a few of the different costumes they wore. I can’t take credit for the princess hat our oldest daughter is wearing. That goes to my husband. Kudos to him for making the best princess hat ever!

I sure miss these little girls.


Happy Halloween everyone!

Just Another Meow Monday

Here it is, just another Meow Monday. I’ve missed a Meow Monday or two because I’ve been a little busy with some Disney related stuff.

Sissy moved into her sister’s old room in August and we have been putting off cleaning out Sissy’s room. A surprise guest last week was the impetus for us cleaning out the room. Apparently, our cats had never seen an empty room and it was shocking and rather frightening. They slunk around that room for hours, checking every nook and cranny. Finally they decided they liked it. I’m just excited I finally have a spare room which just might be my new office/guest room. Yay!

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!
