Halloween Eve is here

Is everyone ready?
Candy bowls stocked?
Pumpkins carved?
I'm in quite the festive mood today
(despite having three kiddos with the sniffles!)

They are all happily watching
Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas
(one of our favorites)
and I am enjoying my coffee and about to read some blogs! The two older kids are out of school, parent teacher conferences :)
I kept Roman home because of his sniffles and sneezing.
He was very sad, his school was visiting the Waterford Ladies Home today
Each year for Halloween the Montessori children visit the ladies and make Halloween cookies with them
Koby & Mia loved it when they were at Montessori and Roman couldn't wait until he was old enough to go
(You have to be 4)
I explained to him that the elderly ladies have a much harder time getting better from a cold than he does. I would hate to get one of them sick!
He's still peeved at me but he will get over it.
I think we'll just have our own cookie party here at home today!

This week was the Book Fair at our school
For me as a child, the Book Fair was almost as good as Christmas!
I would save for months so I could buy all the books my little heart desired
Koby and Mia did the same thing, it really tickled me!
I made them each a bookmark for their new books:

Back view:

I told Koby that if his best friend, Kole, wanted one that I could make him one also Instead he came home telling me that Kole wanted one and he promised them to the rest of his class as well! Eek! Maybe I'll have them done by Christmas?...

I want to share a Halloween banner that I made using
I had so much fun making this!
Isn't it a great piece for the mantle?

Don't you love the little skeletons?
Or "Bone Daddies" as Roman calls them LOL

Thanks for stopping by today!
Here's wishing everyone a SPOOKTACULAR Halloween!
