I don't know about you, but Halloween is starting to pop up all over the place! We had a first official Halloween craft a couple of nights ago at our local 4-H meeting. The kids brought pumpkins to decorate and donate to a local convalescent home. Before these embellished pumpkin pals were packed up to go on their merry way, I had to snap a quick photo of each. My girls are easy smilers for their mamarazzi but nothing brought a more merry giggle to me this week than the quick grin of my youngest beaming next to her gap-toothed jack-o-lantern!! Elise, of Mamacow Creations, noted that carving jack-o-lanterns must have originally been inspired by a mouthful of 2nd grade teeth...errr should I more accurately say *missing* 2nd grade teeth?!?? I totally agree!
I'm linking this post up to fellow 4-H mom, Nancy of The Wife of Dairyman, on her Thankful Thursday linky. I am thankful for the honest to goodness laugh and joy my girls bring to my life for the simplest things...today it happens to be driven by a little holiday crafting, what's not to love about that?
*I'm also thankful I was able to untangle a sewing machine bobbin thread today in the middle of stitching a Halloween costume...but that's a post for another day!*
