Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!! Don't you just love Maxine? She always seems to say exactly what I want to say. My kids are so excited about Halloween tonight. C is going to be a football player we think, A is a vampiress , T is a pumpkin man, and R is a vampire. They are all hoping they get enough candy. While I am hoping I bought enough!! We always get so many trick or treaters in our neighborhood it is hard to know how much to buy. And it is hard to keep my own family out of it until it is time to start handing it out.
Here's hoping to have a memorable Halloween!!

Thrift store find

I got the 3 candle holder at a Thrift store for $1 the other day. I didn't realize how well it went with my other blue decorations. I love blue! I am so glad blue is coming back in.

Animal members of our family

This is our Goldfish. With the original name of Goldie. She is 5 years old.
This is our bird Sam. Mostly we just call him Bird. He gets really loud in the morning and whenever we get loud the bird gets loud.

This is the newest addition to our family Angel. Although R calls her Little Titty because he cannot say kitty.

Here is our other cat Tiger.

Decorating for fall!

Well I finally decorated my house for Fall. Hope you like.

It is hard to see the kids in the picture but they are in a big pile of pumkins. I love this picture.

Always the first thing you see when you walk in the front door is the pictures of the kids.

I need to make an arrangement in the green vase. But it looks good for now.

I love plants in the house.

See the cute fall birds I bought at Rite Aid for $2.50 each? THanks for the beautiful flower candle holder B.

I found this beautiful Turkey at Hobby Lobby for $8.00!

My small collection of churches.

My living room mantel.

The display over my television in the keeping room.

I found this brown pot at Ross for $5.00 I got it for free with a store credit.

Ok, so am I right or am I right? He sure did age well, don't you think? Now I remember the name of the show Eli Stone. Yes, it is terrible I forgot because I actually look forward to watching it every week. I for one am so glad they have George Michael on there. I hope he makes some appearances this year! We gotta have faith!

I was just having some fun thinking about 20 years ago. When I saw that George Michael was number one all I can think of now is him singing on---- ahhh I'm having a Senior moment. Anyways that show is so good and now it is coming on this weekend again, I think. Yes, major Senior moment going on now.
Although, can you tell me why I can sing the song Faith by heart and I can't remember what I ate for breakfast yesterday??????? "I gotta have faith, faith , faith" George Michael still looks GOOOOD after all these years.
