It’s Boo Time!

Yay! It’s BOO time!

During a trip to the grocery store, I noticed they had brought out my favorite childhood cereals for Halloween. I LOVED Count Chocula, Boo-Berry and Franken-Berry as a kid…really loved them!! I was known to sneak the box out of the cabinet and hide it somewhere in my room as a little midnight snack….I would also hide chocolate chips, powdered sugar and saltine crackers…I know I’m a weirdo! I once baked a tray of brownies and then hid them in my nightstand so no one would eat any. My family still talks about that.

Anyway, while looking and rem-mincing about how good that stuff is, it hit me like a  bolt of lightning….they would make super fun Boo gifts!!  I thought the kids might enjoy a little sugar in the morning!!! So I snatched up a few Count Chocula’s and Boo Berry’s, but I was sad that I couldn’t find Franken-Berry…oh well, the two would have to do!

We decided to wrap the boxes up like mummy’s to make them a little spooky. Along with the cereal we gave them a small bag of candy for their afternoon fix of sugar. Your welcome, moms…just covering my bases.

I was really happy when I came across these free printable “We’ve Been Booed” prints from The TomKat Studio!! Aren’t they fun? She also had a great spider one as well!

I love hanging out with my daughter, Daley, when she paints. She paints like a 10 year old…joyful, innocent and sweet. To me, her paintings are glimpses into her pure little mind and I can’t get enough of it. Daley is extra chatty when she is painting and she dreams out loud. She was talking about how she would love to be able to paint for her job!! That is when I went to Etsy to show her an artist who I have loved for awhile, named Katie Daisy.  I bought one of Katie’s prints about a year ago and I put it on a wall in the girl’s playroom. It makes me happy every time I look at it and it’s one Daley favorites as well.

When I clicked on Katie’s Etsy site I saw a note that read “Huge News”…she was being featured in Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday!!! Katie is a breath of fresh air and I can see why she caught Oprah’s attention.  She has a wonderful story and it’s so nice to find a girl who is living the life she wants to live, and whether she knows it or not, a wonderful role model for my girls! (BTW…Daley’s nickname is Daisy, so she was extra excited about this story.)
