Bits and Pieces 11th Edition: Halloweekend Preparations

Hi guys!  Are you as glad as I am that it's Friday?
Anyway...this weekend should be pretty fun.  Our town is doing their Halloweekend this weekend (not quite sure why they can't actually do it next weekend on Halloween, but whatever).  I'm making final touches on my kids Halloween costumes.  

I made successfully made my kindergartner a Yoda costume.  He's so happy!  And I'm happy that worked and took no time at all.

My older son wants to be a football player, so we borrowed a jersey from a friend.  I spent a little time last night making his last name to put on the back of the jersey using freezer paper and paint.   After browsing football pad images online last night I decided to make him some pads using a yoga mat that I never use and got for free.  He loves them.  
My daughter's Greek Goddess costume turned out better than I imagined and involved no sewing!  Seriously, I'm so glad for the internet or my kids would have the lamest  Halloween costumes ever.

In other news, my little guy and I dug up some potatoes for dinner last night.  So yummy!  

And I finally got out some Halloween decorations and they were put right to good use.  

In food news...we all got to eat dinner together before 6:00 yesterday for the first time in months (weekends don't count).  It was so nice!  

And I made peanut butter cookies on Tuesday and wish that I would have quadrupled the batch and stashed some in the freezer.  So yummy!  

Now I get to clean up my Halloween costume making sewing/crafting mess and work on my lesson for church on Sunday.

Have a fabulous weekend!  I'd love to hear what you're up to.  Are you doing Halloween festivities this weekend too?
