Here's hoping you have a spooktacular weekend!

Halloween is such a fun holiday and autumn is such a beautiful time of year. Why not do something fun that you might not ordinarily do. This is a great weekend to decorate your home, take a trip to a cider mill or pumpkin patch, or perhaps make some spooky Halloween cookies. I found these darling skeleton straws at the dollar store last week. My hubby was very surprised when I served him a smoothie and popped one of them into his glass. He just loves it when I do things like this.

Toddlers, pre-schooler's, and school age children love to recieve mail. Why not send your special someone a little treat.

It is not necessary to be a child to enjoy Halloween. My friend Len has been sending out count down Halloween e-mails to all of his family and friends for the past several weeks. Every day I have been recieving one of these charming vintage cards, or some other little something related to Halloween with the message twenty days left, eighteen days left. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed these e-mails! They warm my heart ♥ Now I wait in antisipation to see what his e-mail will bring each day :>) Thank you so much Len! You truly do have a Halloween spirit.
What ever your doing this weekend I hope it's special in every way ♥
Don't forget to watch out for those goblins, witches, and ghosts!
p.s. Charli has been busy getting ready for Halloween too. She now has her costume and we can't wait to show it to all of you.
With warmest regards, Carol

Carol, the straws are so cute. Looking forward to seeing Charli's outfit. I have my Halloween cards ready to mail to my youngest grandchildren with a monetary surprise for each of them. I enjoy Halloween and look forward to it every year. Have a blessed day. Madeline
