I feel a bit ripped off.
We don't really have Fall here. It stays pretty warm until Thanksgiving, and it is hard for me to decorate the house all warm and cozy when it is hot and windy outside.
But, I am doing my best to embrace this fake season and add a little Autumn to our days.If you haven't tried Scrapblog yet, you are missing out. I made this little treat in less than a minute. Then I saved it as a JPEG, sent it off to Costco to print and poof! Halloween cards.
Wait... are you thinking that I might need a little spell check for my signs?
This might only be charming to me, in the way that stories about what kids say are usually only charming to their parents, but indulge me.
I love the word SPOOKY. I call most scary Halloween things "spooky" in a silly voice so Halley and Lucy are distracted by the creepy gore in front of them.
Lucy suddenly started calling every single Halloween related item "SMOOKY".
Let's be honest, "smooky" is one of the best words ever invented.
So at Target she spotted these candy pumpkins and asked if she could have some "smooky candy". After I nearly fell over laughing, I bought the bag of pumpkins and decided right then and there that I needed to make a sign to commemorate the phrase.
If you are feeling crafty head on over to Hostess with the Mostess for instructions on how to make these fab paper pumpkins. I bet even your kids would want to help out.
My old neighborhood was filled with young families and each Halloween we would "Boo" each other. It is a fun tradition and Simply Mein has great downloads and instructions on how you can start it where you live.
