Halloween Crafts 2013 - with the nieces and nephews!

WOO-HOO...... next week is Halloween!! 
This is just a short post sharing some pictures from Halloween craft day 2013.  We had so much fun.....the kids are always entertaining.  I'm happy that next year we will have baby Vincent to share this experience with his cousins.
It was such a nice day out, I decided to do the crafts out on the patio.
Let the Halloween crafting begin...
This years pumpkin theme was "Swamp Thing"!  I'm glad I decided to do this craft outside...can you imagine the mess in the house.  It was so much fun seeing the kids get crafty with all the eyes and giving their creations hair cuts.  Silly kids! Baby Vincent got his very own swamp thing pumpkin too!! 

We also made mummy lanterns. Even made one for baby.  His is the 1st one with the googly eyes.

We or should I say my sisters were in charge of making the yummy Mummies, I'm in charge of adding the eyes!!  Well someone wasn't keeping time....we'll just blame my brother for that one.  They were still delish because there were none leftover.
Here are the kiddos inside, hands washed, shirts off....why, I have no idea, lol!  But they were all excited and ready to make their own pizzas.
Awesome afternoon with the people I love!

Words and Pictures Wednesday....on a Thursday, lol!

** Well this was yesterdays post....I don't know why it didn't post. Oh well here it is!
Seems like this month is flying by just as quickly as last month did.  Here we are the 16th of October and I'm already wishing it was Thanksgiving already.....I blame the baby and Guy Fieri of the show Diners Drive-ins and Dives. I don't remember which day but the hubby and I were watching a rerun and they had the most delicious, the most mouth watering open faced turkey sandwich you have ever seen.  With all the fixings....okay I'm making my mouth water again, LOL!
Any who things are getting done.  This past weekend was Halloween Craft day with my nieces and nephews.  If you don't know I have done Halloween/Christmas craft day with them every year since they were little toddlers.  I remember when it was just the two nephews, now those same two are 9 and 8 years old.  Plus, next year I get to do crafts with our little boy!  I definitely can't wait for that day.
Planning is happening for the baby shower, almost 2 weeks away, eeek!! The invitations have been sent out.  RSVPs have been trickling in.  I think I've changed the registry up for the last time.  It was so over whelming. 
TheHubs and I will be getting the dresser this weekend. So we can finish up the nursery.  It's all coming together now.  I can't believe it, there will be a baby in there in a few short months.  Next month we will also have a maternity photo shoot done, I'm really excited about that, so is theHubs.
Well here are a few pics that I have to show you on the Pics and Words Wednesday......
This would be Ms.Betty FurPants, she believes she is human.  She is spoiled and thinks everything we eat she has to taste test. This is one crazy cat!
Fall has begun, which usually means so does baking....Sadly being pregnant, tired and even more tired - Anything that needs to be in the oven has to be easy.  So, sadly no baked goods from scratch right now. This momma is exhausted!!

Here is baby Vincent and myself... 26 weeks which means 6 ½ months.  My ankles look swollen but they're not.  I sprained my ankle pretty bad a couple years ago....it's never looked the same, lol!!
