Halloween Spooktacular!

We had a great Halloween! Some of the things we enjoyed the most were dressing up...

...Making candy, doing our nails...

And most important PARTIES!

We did of course go trick-or-treating but we didn't get pictures of that.
Happy Halloween!

Ward Halloween Party

We're late...we're late...for a very important date! Even though I needed three hours and only got two to get ready we finally made it to the party. The youth did a great job with setting up and running the kiddie  booths. Ever one had a great time. We won the best family costume again with our Alice In Wonderland theme. :)

Here are our photos from the ward party.

 Alice Annalyn                                March Hair Tuffer

 Cheshire Cat          Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum

 Now if we can just get Annalyn out of her Alice dress and save it for Halloween...

Sherman's Fall Concert

 They sounded awesome! Such a proud Momma!
  Annalyn even enjoyed it! She yelled, "Good job Shermie!" just as everyone got quiet again.
But Hey, He Did Do A Good Job!

Tuffer Class Project

Tuffer was nice enough to volunteer me to help with his clss project again this year. We wanted to make something unique, personalize, fun and useful. This is what we came up with. A Seasons Tree/clock.

 First we did the background using the tops of their hands to put the color blocks on. When we had that done I took it home and painted the tree.
The next day I took it back and let the kids but "leaves" on the tree with their finger
and then sign their work on the tree with a fine point sharpie. The trick was to make the signatures visible without being overbearing.

I think they did a great job! With that done I took it home again to finish the final details.
Gloss finish paint, frame, and clock.
It went for an awesome price at the silent auction!
