Anticipation... . I'm writing before the day begins as it is Halloween and I know my day is going to be full of cooking, little monsters and roaring (that'll be me... lol). Last year we had a blast dressing up and having fun with some friends of ours. For my son it was his very first experience of acknowledging the whole commercial side to Halloween. Well he's extremely prepared this time around! He decided I think about 4 months ago that he was going to be a vampire and still hasn't let up on that idea! Unfortunately though I swear I have NOT been able to get any vampire teeth anywhere for him. I searched Toys R Us, my local craft shop that has a HUGE amount of halloween dress up stuff, and even my supermarket which stocked and even larger amount of stuff including costumes... but teeth? I was out of luck! I mean vampire outfits without teeth? Perhaps I didn't look hard enough lol. I was limited with the stores I could visit in the retail park, but I hoped the supermarket would pay off being as they have already stripped many small businesses in the UK bare... all without vampire teeth! My son made an awesome Darth Maul earlier in the week when my partner had a dabble at painting his face. We have a lightsaber at least lol! But vampire it is for today!

So I'm just going to have to paint them on for him which is ok... I'm excited anyway, as it's nice that my son is starting to look forward to these things now! I've already done my pumpkin, and baked a pumpkin and pecan pie... trying really hard not to devour it before later lol! I can't wait to photograph some of the dishes i have planned.

Nothing new has happened with me this week other than anticipating happenings next week, completing orders and finishing my son's Sooty puppet which is a Christmas present for him... just need to make Sweep and Soo next. Stuff has been happening with my little girl though, who is now finally sitting confidently on her own, purposefully batting things with her plastic hammer and grabbing like crazy lol! I wish I could keep up with her, she's just going a bit too quickly for me at the mo! It's amazing how much you take on board with the first and how it all just flies by with the second. I'm really chuffed for her though I have been able to tell for ages that she's been desperate to play with her big brother and now she can! Great stuff :)

Right! Bed Time! Take care :)
