Hey, my peeps! (I sooo should NOT be up at this hour...) I have been hopping along with Robyn and her crew! Check it out and hop along! Then proudly post your creation for all to see. Robyn and her team are so great and love seeing what everyone else comes up with. I know it wasn't made for the hop, but I have decided to use my kiddies' spooky ghosts as the project for the blog hop. One thing I am trying to do is get more creative on crafts I can do with my kidlets. I cannot seem to spend enough time with them and they are both SO IN LOVE with crafting! We kind of came up with this ghost project together at their little picnic table in our living room. I brought out some supplies and we went from there. The foam cups were daddy's idea! So it is a family project that my kiddies are so proud of! Every morning they come down to the living room and point out their ghosts dangling from the ceiling. (Mommy thought of using fishing line to hang them so it looks like they are floating.) It is definitely a project that I will be continuing as a tradition for our family and I would like to share that with everybody. Other than Mommy being in charge of the low heat hot-glue gun, (say that ten times fast), the project was entirely theirs to create and enjoy. (They also added some stickers in the back of their ghosts. There is no ending a project in our house without the use of stickers!) I am very proud of my babies and their beautiful craft. I hope you all enjoy it too! Take care and have a wonderful night..err...morning...day...NIGHT, EVERYONE!!!! P.S. I will try and post the SIMPLE instructions tomorrow...er...today...after I get some sleep. :D

Hey, guys! Sorry I haven't been around much. I have been spending a lot of time with the kids and my hubby. This past weekend was our Canadian Thanksgiving. I have also been working on some crafts with the kids for Halloween. I have some projects to post but need to finish. I will, however, leave you with pics of my my two oldest children and their spooky ghosts that we made out of foam cups, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes! Take care, everyone!

Well, I am finally home. The trip I took with my 3 1/2 yr old son to Edmonton, Alberta was fun. It was crazy busy too, but we were able to squeeze in a very fun half day at West Edmonton Mall with my sisters and their sweet darlings. I am actually sitting in bed right now because I am sick. LoL Yup! One 3 day trip and I am wiped! Mind you, it had a lot to do with the fact that our plane home was delayed from 8:30pm to midnight. I am EXHAUSTED. Yup! We spent HOURS in the airport with a 6mnth old and 3 1/2 yr old. (I should really stop saying 3 1/2. He will be 4 in two months! Yikes!) Then a nice 1 1/2 hr flight home. I was up 19 hrs+ trying to keep up with my energizer bunny! Anyway, it was quite the trip and I even got to hit a Michaels! I am so excited. I grabbed some pretty sweet deals and can't WAIT to start making projects with my newest toys. :) However, it will have to wait until this head cold/chest infection is gone. Oh the joys of being sick! Just keep the Neo Citron coming, honey! (My hubby is so good to me when I am sick.) Speaking of Neo Citron, it is now kicking in and I must sleep. Can't wait to share all the new fun projects I have planned for Halloween! I don't think I have ever been this excited before! We are going to have a Halloween party this year and my sweet kidlets are going to help make the decorations-I can't WAIT! We are also going costume shopping with them on Tuesday and I am just so excited I am vibrating! Tons of pics to come! Y'all take good care and I will see you soon!
