To test my bloggy speed, I am going to try to tell you as much as I possibly can in 10 minutes, since I decided to watch Modern Family last night rather than write this post. I know, bad! Oh, well…I have been under the weather for the past three days and believe it or not, I just needed to relax.
Halloween is upon us and a fun weekend is about to begin! We are having our annual pumpkin carving party on Friday. We invite some friends over and the kids go to town with their gourds…have a few snacks and many laughs. When all is said and done, we line up the Jack-o-Lantern masterpieces and light ’em up. It looks awesome! The kids ooh and ahh at the final product. I think this year, we may have a judging contest with prizes.

Not sure how my son will top his creation from last year…..
|Yes, a Puking Pumpkin|
But we will see!
I am also going to participate in a weekend long Halloween Contest by the SITS Girls….The prize is a sweet new fancy camera…one that I am drooling over. I love to add pictures to the blog and I have a little Nikon, that takes some sweet shots, but the prize camera, well, if I win, wait til you see *those* shots! ??Look for my Halloween themed posts on October 30, 31 and November 1. This would be such a cool prize, because what you may not know is….I am a Halloween Baby! That’s right! So this could be the best birthday ever! 🙂
November 1st is also the day that we meet our new Blogger of the Month! I hope you have enjoyed our October Blogger of the Month, David! If you haven’t visited yet, please check out his site. I think you will be quick to follow him!
The Chicago Series is about to wind down…we have met The Professor, The Movie Star, Gilligan, Skipper and Mr & Mrs. Howell so far. Next week meet Mary Ann! We will then have a recap party, Chicago style! I have had so much fun writing this…and I am glad you have enjoyed it too.
Since the Chicago series has been so well received, I decided to run a “I am Thankful For……” series in the month of November. Look for Thankful Thursdays, which will be written by guest bloggers sharing their story! Can’t wait! Speaking of guest posts….
