We had our annual halloween party at my parents last night. As usual, she went way above and beyond and we all had a great time! This year was extra fun, we had a magician. My kids were mesmorized. He was excellent.
4 was a witch, 8 a clown and 6 was a china girl. I didn't have any Halloween makeup, so I painted their faces with acrylic paint. This was actually a fantastic idea! Guess I am smarter than I think :) You know how halloween makeup gets everywhere if you touch it? Well 6'c costume was a genuine silk kimono from China. I really had no desire to dry clean it, so I threatened her. If she got it dirty, all of her halloween candy was mine!
Well, turns out, the paint dryed and didn't go anywhere.(except during the apple bobbing) So, if any of you hate halloween makeup as much as me, use your acrylic paint watered down, and a sponge brush. It is super fast, dries quickly, doesn't get everywhere and comes off with a soap and water. No one screamed when makeup came off! Don't worry. it's safe to use on skin.
This is 4 bobbing for apples.
This is my little witch. If only she was this pleasant all the time!( I think that sometimes she has horns and a pointed tail.)
This was all of us. Unfornuately, this whole headache crap has done nothing for weight loss. I guess laying around for a month will do that. Another lovely side effect.
Finally, I am doing a swap with a fellow blogger. I made myself create on saturday. I didn't want to look like a slacker. This is what I same up with. Each took about 5 mins. Have I told anyone lately how much I love my Cricut? (Deb, if you are reading this, will you remind me of the site that I go to for all the fonts?)
This is the "feather bird" sign. I got the little sign from the dollar store. Then I just crafted it up.
Thanks for being so patient with all my pics. Also, for any advice on the whole headache. You guys are great!!!
