Okay, Monday was Halloween, so please indulge this great grandmother for one blog post.  Above is my great grandson Carter in his costume.  I think he's supposed to be a swamp person or zombie or something scary. Whatever, it is scary, which is what he wanted.

Here he is in full costume! His father brought him to my house.  Dad passed out candy to the neighborhood kids, while Carter and I walked around begging for candy.  What fun!

All the kids were so darn cute, but I had to ask this little girl to let me take a picture of her.  I asked her to explain her costumer to me and she said she was a VooDoo doll.  Note the pins sticking in her heart.  I wonder if her mother made this costumer.  It is adorable.

Now down to business:


Don't forget to stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and pick up your Passport for the Jingle Bell Hop which takes place from Nov. 11 -19.  Passports are only $5.  Along with the purchase of a passport you will get a free pattern, store discounts, and your name will be entered into daily drawings.  Each shop will offer a grand prize of a $50 gift certificate.  You won't want to miss this!!!

Terrrrrific costumes, and I´m glad you had such a fun Halloween, Caroll! No one rang at our door this year--less celebrated here--but my son went to a party at a friend´s house and my daughter would have worn her Pikachu costume on the late shift at the hospital if she´d been allowed. :o)
Today is sunny and beautiful, it´s a holiday here so I´m having fun playing with my baby Wegie (Norwegian forest cat, named Ragnar but I call him Raggie :o)) and finishing some curtains for my daughter´s roof windows. Enjoying the break--6 tops from friends waiting to be quilted after that...
Hope you´re having mostly happy weather where you are too! Love and hugs from Germany, Bobbi

The kid's costumes are fabulous! And you got to get out amongst them. That's really awesome too. I miss seeing all the children in their costumes as we get no tricksters out our way. The houses are too far and few between. Happy Halloween!
