CVS Pharmacy Receipt Costume

Original Source:  Unknown

This fella made this clever, original costume showing the horror of the seemingly 8 feet of receipt that you get when you buy something at CVS.

Decorated Houses



Tonight I snapped a few pics when driving around the town where I live (Fort Wayne, IN) of houses decorated for Halloween and thought I would share them.

Love the spooky trees with the gravestones.


Love the spider web made with lights.  Would love to see bats upstairs though.

Spooky lights on the porch, but think the upstairs on this one could use bats and spooky lights.

Lots of little details on this house, but think it needs some bats on the upper windows. 
Fewer details but has bats!

Large spider attacking a bush.  I heard that same comment after a 2004 Presidential debate.

Looks like ghostly figures cloaked in corn stalks...perhaps Children of the Corn?

A cute, tiny house with several decorations out front.

While it looks like there are depressed witches and pumpkins, it is like the strong winds today took their toll which caused the deflation.

Which decoration or house did you like the best?   Feel free to leave a comment below.

Cute, Quick and Easy DIY Treats

While most of the recipes involve melting chocolate and dipping, they are cute, quick and easy enough that even older children can help in making or decorating.

My favorite is the "Ghost" Bark but, but an excuse to smash Oreos is fun too.   Which is your favorite or do you have a cute quick and easy treat or link to share?   Feel free to leave it in the Comment section.
