Halloween stuff



Today was much better, thank you so much for all the uplifting words. I should know better than to try and post a blog entry when I've had a horrible day. At the same time though, I really needed the support and I'm not afraid to admit that. So thanks again.
In an attempt to get more into the Halloween swing of things around here, the kids and I made these today. I get the pattern from thetoymaker.com. She has amazing free patterns for very beautiful paper toys and things. I loved how they turned out. We actually ended up doing them for girl scouts tonight. My sugar skull molds came in today also and we made those. We also had Mexican hot chocolate and sweet bread (YUM!) It was fun teaching the girls about the Day of the Dead. I will try and post pictures of it later. Anyhow, it was wonderful teaching the girls about a new culture. I think it's so important for us to realize we all share this planet. I love learning things about different cultures. Someday when I grow up, I would like to be a cultural anthropologist.

oh no! I missed your bad day! It's all up and down dear. I'm sorry you had a down day. Thank goodness for dead people and their souls revisiting the earth! If that's what floats your boat ;)
love you!

Those are cute! I'll have to check out the website. Glad you're feeling better! I'm with ya on the culture thing. I love that kind of stuff. It's awesome learning how other people see the world and interpret it into their own lives. I'm so addicted to traveling, too. It sounds like you and the scouts had a great time! I wish you were the GS leader here! :)

Thanks for the toymaker link -- fabulous stuff. Hey -- I finally got MY sorry old self to the post office today and sent off the quilting book to you, so keep an eye out for it.

Yeah, life is a roller coaster. I try and try and try to find equilibrium, to make peace, to feel accomplished and on top of things and... it does not happen. Good days and bad days, good weeks and bad weeks. (And of course they are going to bed happy -- look at those tiny smiles as they sleep.)
