The Lone Ranger

Dave and I haven't been to a Halloween party in awhile.  He usually works late on that night and throws something together last minute.  I had a Lord of the Rings outfit ordered and on its way.   After pestering him again to choose an outfit, he said he was going to be the Lone Ranger.  Weird choice, I thought.  Then he said, "Have you seen they are re-making a movie of it?"  Nope, hadn't heard that.

View the trailer here.

When I got my Lord of the Rings costume, and it didn't fit well, I decided to join my husband and become another dynamic duo.

We were a little ahead of the times.  No one recognized our costumes.   Johnnny Depp as Tonto, people.

I guess they will come next July.

Glitter Slime Monsters

I saw this idea to make glitter slime and totally loved it.  Maya had a half day of school today, so we dug out our glitter glue and gave it a whirl.  The kids squished and molded it for awhile.

Then I dug out some craft supplies and some glass jars and the kids made little monsters out of it. 

Maya's turned out to be witch-like.  Ethen's more like Frankenstein.  He loved sticking the eyes on and went a little crazy.

Handmade Halloween decor

I've been getting my Halloween craft groove on. I am so happy to have craft supplies at my fingertips! No longer do I have to "wish" I had a styrofoam ball. I got all these ideas/supplies from Michaels. They have some fun stuff right now. I made this banner from digital scrapbook paper I printed on my computer at home. Then added glitter medallions, lights, glitter ribbon, and striped ribbons, and voila! Not too cutesy, not too creepy, kinda inbetween fun.

I got the candleholder and flower bunches from Michaels too. Just clipped them off and stuffed them in. You can make this in 15 minutes, easy.

I was looking for a spooky flower arrangement.  I'm no floral designer, obviously, but it turned out okay.  I was going for the spindly, creepy look.

Here's a look at the table.  The damask pumpkins are from Hobby Lobby.
