I hope you had a good weekend. Ours was nice. Great grandma and grandpa joined us to walk around with our three trick or treaters. It was a fun little group. Can you tell what our family costume theme was?

I’m really going to try to be good about my holiday checklist this week (if you missed the original, you can get it here). Last year I pulled Christmas decoration boxes out of the shed and into the garage after Halloween and it really helped.

I’m also determined to make a cool nativity with my kids this year. My dad makes the most incredible scenes every year. One of the best memories of growing up was smearing a gloppy cornstarch and dye mixture over paper to make the sky and landscape, and sprinkling it with glitter. We didn’t go all out on the nativity last year, but this year we’re going to give it a go. So RIT dye is on my list of decorations to shop for.

Anyone have any fun holiday picture ideas? I’m thinking of doing a variation on these, maybe?

I’m also on the hunt for a nice wreath for something very fun. If I find one I’ll share. Do you have any plans for preparations this week?
