Tonight, my husband and I carved out our own jack-o-lanterns. Usually, we do one together (this usually means I think of an idea, he draws it and carves it out) but this year I was really inspired to do my own! I wanted to make one of my dog, Brian.
This one's my husband's:
I finally filled up the memory card on my digital camera! I have over 900 photos taken! Let me know if you ever want the full-sized version of a photo you see on my blog-I will happily sent it over via email! :)
Monday is Halloween. School policy does not allow costumes in school so please make sure that your child does NOT come to school in costume or bring one to school. We will be painting the smaller sized pumpkins that J.A's mom donated. Each student will paint one and get to take it home!
We will have a mini celebration during snack time!
I end with this photo of my dog, Brian playing in the snow. He blends in with the snow if I don't put a sweater and booties on him!
