Halloween Party Pictures...

I thought the easiest way to post ALL the pictures was to add them to my picasa album. You can view them here. Also I know a lot of you took lots of pictures to. So if you e-mail them to me at, we can add them too...your kids or ours, we'll take them all.

Boutique Update

Okay slight change of plans for the fundraiser boutique! We are still on, but instead of doing it at my house I am going to do it online on Etsy. My very smart husband helped me realize if I start hanging up signs all over and passing around fliers in releif society I am going to embarrass my very good friend who is already being a very good sport about me doing this for her. So... I am going to open an Etsy shop that will list all the donated items from December 1st to the end of year. This will actually be better since the items will be viewed for longer and people can forward the listings to friends and family to help us get more support.
If you offered to make a craft item keep crafting. Your dealine is now the first of December to either bring me the item or e-mail me a photograph of it. At the end of December if your item doesn't sell I will return it to you, or you can donate it to the family. If you were planning on making a baked item, sorry, it just won't work, but kudos to you anyway!
Thank you to all who offered to help with fliers. I don't need you to do that now but use that time and energy to promote the store online and do some shopping!
Watch for a post from me towards end of November. I will post a link to the shop and instructions on how to purchase/pick up items.
Any questions convo me!

Christmas Boutique Fundraiser

Hi Ladies,
As many of you know the Barkdull family has been awaiting Matt's kidney transplant and it looks like it is going to happen after Christmas at the end of December or first of January. Matt will obviously have to take some time off to recovery and it will be a difficult time for the entire family. I have decided to host a boutique in December to help raise money for them and would love and appreciate any help.
It's going to be Saturday, December 6th, right here in my home. I am looking for people who are willing to help distribute fliers the week before, help that day with setting up and running the cash register, and help with cleaning up afterwards. I was hoping to get people to do two hour shifts so you don't have to bee here all day. The boutique will go from about 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
I am also looking for donations. This can be anything from hand made items or crafts to baked goods or any thing you would generally find at a boutique. All the proceeds will go to the family, and any left over items will either be returned to the person who made them, or just donated right to the family and they can use then as Christmas gifts. The person who donated the item can decide.
Anyway, if you are willing to help please e-mail me at or call me at 494-9279. Thank you!!!

Costume Swap Site

There is a new site for the costume swap. Karen was having trouble with the last one and says this new site is much easier. So take a look if you are looking for a specific costume or are wanting to lend, or get rid of some you have to others.
You can access the site with the link on the right side of this blog "costume swap".

Found A Dog

Today a dog decided to call my house home. I have called the animal shelter and they want me to give them the dog and then after 5 days, if it is not claimed, they will either put it up for adoption or put it to sleep. The dog is a chocolate color, kinda looks like a hound or a lab but not for sure. It is a puppy and has a green/yellow collar with a shock thing on it. I will keep the dog at my house for a day or two then I will revaluate what to do with it. It is a pure bread dog and a very good looking dog I would be surprised if I had him over night! Someone should be looking for him. I did put up signs around the neighborhood but they are for a chocolate lab. Anyway, let me know if you know who the dog belongs too!
