It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like....

Autumn and Halloween and everything orange and fun. :0)

All of you who have known me a while knows that Halloween is my favorite holiday of them all. I know, it's not technically a "holiday" but it is to me.
Orange and black and purple and spooky and crazy and wild...yea, that's me alright.

This is the time of year I crave being let loose in a store with unlimited funds, shop till I drop and go on an insane rampage decorating and designing the coolest/spookiest/funnest house on the block.
LOL..well, that is a dream anyway. Reality tells me that my boys are outgrowing everything they own again and the grocery supply is in need of restocking...again. :0(
Last night I made two Italian style meatloaves, stuffed in the middle with ricotta cheese.
They were good sized loaves, made in large bread loaf pans.
No exaggeration...those two boys put away exactly one and a half loaves between them, plus all the sides I made to go with it.
And...they don't gain a stinkin' ounce of chub, ever.

Oh well, I guess it's time to hit up the garage attic and see what I can bring down from Halloween's past.
Maybe...just maybe I can sneak in a new thing or two over the next month or so. ;0)

Have a great day everyone!!

Oooohhh...that Ricotta Cheese Stuffed/Italian Meatloaf sounds YUM-MY!!! I almost made meatloaf today! :) Opted for Spaghetti in the crock pot instead.

I was just thinking that I need to pull out the autumn decorations...just no stinkin' time! How cool that you have an orange shutter for your backdrop, Kim!

Hoping everyone is doing A-OK down that way....don't want to bug you with another email... :o)

Love yaz!

Halloween is my favorite Holiday too! I'm getting out my decorations tomorrow. My son Alex is 4 and he wants to be a police man. My daughter Kaitlin is 11 and she wants to be a dark angel or a witch basically something gothic! I really wish I had a costume of my own, they are just so expensive! What are Kody and Kolin going to be. I know they won't pass on free candy..... Oh and by the way, My Mother was just diagnosed with normal pressure hydrocephalus. She has fluid on her brain and will need a shunt. I have researched the procedure but facts are facts. I'd greatly appreciate it if when you get a chance you could e-mail me about when Kody had his done? It's a lot more informative when you hear it from someone who's been through it. Please e-mail. thank you!

I am so sorry to hear about your Mom but, trust me...the shunt will make a world of difference.
Email me:
If I can help in anyway, please just let me know. :0)
