Smacksy Halloween Sunday Links

Did I know how to party or what? I love It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, especially this scene. This post on the organizing blog, Chaos to Order, explains that the average person receives 41 pounds of junk mail a year. Forty. One. They reveal a way to eliminate, or at least cut down on,…

More Halloween Fun!

You didn’t think it ended there, did you? I’m beginning to feel ready to get into more fall and – more importantly – Christmas fun, but Halloween should go out with a bang first! These days, Halloween is nearly a week long if you look for it. Costumes are expensive. Well, all right – we…

I have added some actions we have also used for this song. Five little…

Saturday painting!!!

Miss Haven wanted to repaint her room and get it all pretty before visitors start coming to see her. We picked out some paint at Home Depot and dedicated our Saturday to doing her room. First thing to do was to get rid of the dark purple on the wall. This took 3 coats of…
