Happy Halloween-Eve!! As this card says - tomorrow is the scary nite! I've had fun making these cards this week and this one has a dark rusty colored Bazzill base, the striped paper is from Deja Views and there's some black as well as purple Bazzill scraps. The vellum message is from a Fall paper set from Joann's from last year. The little pumpkin head is a stamp from the Year Round Fun II set and then I colored them in with some orange and yellow and green markers. The green ribbon is from Michael's and then I used a large and tiny star punch, the ticket corner punch and 4 little orange brads and pop-dots of course. Can't live with 'em! The small picture is of Ali and her bat cookie she made, which I thought was perfect with today's card.

Gosh, what do I have to talk about today? Well we had the kids over for dinner last nite and we didn't have a lot of time because Neal and Quentin had to go and get their basketball pictures taken at 7:15. So....we both pull into the parking lot at 5:30 and it's a whirlwind to walk Dixie, get dinner on the table, help Vanessa with her homework, watch some of the World Series game, and whatever else was happening at the time too I don't even know. So we pulled out some mandarin orange chicken from the freezer from Trader Joe's and made some rice and asian veggies. Neal had all of the timing down perfectly (he's so good) as to how long everything would take and we were sitting down and eating at 6:15. Not bad, huh? So before you know it they were gone and the house was quiet again. There were big hugs and kisses for Dixie from the kids as they won't see her again before she leaves on Monday. I don't want to talk anymore about that anymore right now..........

Tonite I think it's just us two, not sure what we'll whip up for dinner but probably grill something and catch up on some shows. Grey's is on, and I hope it's a better show tonite than it has been the last couple of weeks. I've gotta get the Monster Munch done for the peeps here at work for tomorrow too.

Have a great day!

Peace and Luv,
