By throwing in as many activities as possible….in two days.
We made a trip to the country for my friend and former co-workers 60th birthday party. Happy Birthday Ev!
Salem, the black lab, a great pumpkin. Brownie, the Japanese princess shih-tzu, a skeleton. And Anna, the creeper dog, completely freaked out by a t-shirt on her back that says Boo. It’s quite ironic and hilarious.
Then we made cookies. You know….just in case the trick or treat candy wasn’t sugar overload enough. Mixing food coloring gel to make orange icing. Plus two other kinds of cookies made straight from the package. Yeah, I skipped the from scratch part. Oops.
We also made a trip to the pumpkin patch. I got some really great pictures. Magical, as in Supergirl in the corn field, and a ladybug in the corn maze. So cute!
Then, I made these photo collages. The Mac, with my PSE on it, is in the shop. I learned something crafty by discovering the world of collages are a button away on Picasa. Why didn’t someone tell me? I triple heart photo collages.
SITS girls asked us to link up our crafty posts. Well, this is mine and I say it counts. I made a lot of stuff happen this weekend and I’m feeling pretty crafty about that.
I will have another post with our actual trick or treating last night. I shadowed the girl’s mom taking pictures of the girls getting ready and trick-or-treating in their neighborhood. It was adorable. Sydney dressed up too (at 16!). She got quite a load of candy. And Jason even posed for pictures with some of Bridget’s costume.
What a weekend. Happy sugar hangover day!
