Strutin' Their Stuff-Halloween

We have a lot of fun at our house come Halloween. Fischer, Karl, and I aren't the only ones that get in the action.  Sadie and Gus like to strut their stuff on this fun night.

Last night one of Karl's friends threw a Halloween party.  The theme: Rockstars.  Everyone came; Dolly Parton, Sunny & Char, Madonna, and many other celebrities.  Everyone was dressed as rockstars or rockers.  We 'rocked' the night away with good food, laughs, and playing Rock Band. We had a good time.

The Pro Golfer

Fischer LOVES to golf and play with his clubs so for Halloween this year what could be more appropriate then having him be a Professional Golfer.  I had a really hard time narrowing down pictures since there were so many cute ones. 

This picture made me laugh so I had to include it.  He was upset because he couldn't pick up the pumpkin.

Farewell (waving bye)

Ghost Circle

I'm always looking for cute decorations I can make without having to spend alot of money. I wanted something for outside and I remember seeing a picture one time of these little ghost that people had placed in a circle. It's kind of stuck with me so I decided I was going to make my own ghost circle to go around my little tree in my front yard.
To make your own ghost you'll need the following items:

Dowels (you'll need a dowel for each ghost you want to make.  I made 3)
Styrofoam ball (for each head)
1 1/2 yard of fabric for each ghost (a bed sheet will work too)
Ribbon (Optional)
Permanent Marker
Glue Gun

Take your dowel and make a hole in your Styrofoam ball.  Add hot glue and glue the dowel inside the ball.  
Take your sheet or material and fold it diagonally so that it forms a triangle type shape. Don't worry if your material doesn't line up exactly. 
Place your dowel with the head inside the fabric and place an elastic around the the base of the dowel just below the head 
Add eyes, mouth or whatever facial feature you would like.  I just did the eyes.  For added effect I tied a bow around the neck.  
Place the dowels into the ground and tie the long ends (hands) together. Wala, you have a cute ghost circle. 

If you decide you don't like the circle you could always just do a line of ghost and place them along the sidewalk or entrance way of your house.  The possibilities are endless. 

Ghost Nails

Being in the Halloween Spirit I thought I would add some spooky ghost to my fingernails and toenails.

Fishin' with Dad

Karl took Friday off so that he could take his favorite little man fishing.  Fischer had an awesome time and thought Gus (our dog) was HILARIOUS.  Gus would splash around in the water and Fischer would laugh so hard he couldn't stand up. 
Heading out to the River

Checking out the local wildlife.  Fischer thought the fuzzy caterpillar was cool.

Watching Dad show him how it's done.

Fischer had to touch every fish that Karl had caught.

Snack Time!

After a long day fishing he was warn out.  He passed out before we made it to the highway.

Fall Fingers

I like to do fun things with my toe nails but with Fall and Winter fast approaching my toes get hidden by boots and other shoes.  So I decided to let my finger nails have the spotlight for a bit.  I'm not sure if this design is my favorite, it's a little busy for me. I tend to like a simpler look when it comes to my fingernails.  The idea is that its suppose to look like a bunch of fall leaves.

Candy Corn

With Fall in the air I thought I would do a tribute to something fall-like on my toes.  What says fall more then candy corn?
