Halloween Adventure!

Yahoo! I love HALLOWEEN!
Ms Vanessa Valencia is hosting a Halloween Celebration Oct 17!
I am so excited to be apart of it!
I have many ideas still haunting my head from

One of those hollowed out white pumpkins with spookiness inside.
Not too scary I like the whimsy side more especially with my little ones. who wants to be creeped out. Definitely by your parents! I can't even take them into MICHEAL'S craft store now! Well I'll say I stopped last month due to the gruesome animated creatures. NOT one of my children likes it. I have to go in and avoid 1/2 the store or just go with out them(very very rare). Oh I digress on to the what I have haunting me creatively!
