“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Happy weekend

Hi again,
it rained all weekend!!!!!You know how that puts me in a Halloween mood!

It's so amazing to see an overcast sky here, even during monsoon season...this ominous looking cloud yielded light rain!

It didn't matter though, it came back later and made up for it...And the thunder was so loud!!!
We put a CD of Halloween music on and made Caramel apples dipped in peanuts and white chocolate chips...

And an un-birthday cake cause it just happened to be every one's un-birthday this weekend:)

Then we watched Hocus Pocus and made some Fall decorations.

Also....June from I sew cute has nominated my blog for an award...I have to post 7 random things about myself and nominate 7 recently discovered bloggers with this award...so here goes
