Halloween Highlights 2010

My awesome friend Carrie and her daughter Mady made me this wreath.  Halloween is also my birthday.  They spray painted a grape vine wreath black, after they covered it with an assortment of plastic snakes, spiders and other creepy things.  I love it.  Looked awesome on my red front door.  Thanks guys!

What’s Halloween without instant sugar overload?  I baked these one Friday evening when Lauren had a friend spend the night.  I hooked them up with the frosting and adornments and went to bed.  Nothing like being greeted with a spooktacular cupcake the next morning.  Chocolate and coffee.  Two of my favorite things……OK….wine is up there as well.

Mady and Lauren, off to a Halloween party, the weekend of Halloween.  We had a lot going on, let me tell you.  I had to shift from “zen mode” to “mom mode” one too many times.

Halloween night.   Izzy, Oscar, Alex, Mady, Emily and Lauren. 

Out into the night we went.  It was a beautiful night to be walking around the hood, that’s for sure.

Hope your Halloween was safe and happy!

Freaky Caterpillar Update

Thought I’d share the journey of the freaky caterpillar. 


Two days after I found this little dude, he has morphed into this.

Looks like a stick, eh?  Pretty much.  His shell is somewhat hard, and there are rough places on it.  Some are spike-like.  Can’t wait to see the butterfly he’s supposed to turn into.  We hope he makes it.  I don’t think there’s anything we can really do except just wait it out.

I’ll keep you posted.
