Happy Halloween!

Yes, I realize I'm a day early, but I know I won't get a chance to post tomorrow. I just love Halloween! Decorating, kids in costumes, sharing treats with my students--what's not to love about it?

Check out my cool pic! That's me at the Scrapbooks Etc. Halloween crop last weekend. I'm wearing my winning costume. I was a giant scrapbook page? Pretty clever, huh! The crop was so much fun. I don't make it out to SBE as much as I used to pre-Katrina, so any time I get to spend out there is cherished. I got a lot of pages done and had a ball.

School is going well. Yesterday was Report Card Conference Day. I saw several of the parents I needed to see, but I wish there had been a bigger turnout. Actually, that's typical of my grade level. Parents really don't stay as involved in their children's schools as the kids get older. It's sad, really. I think teens need their parents as much as the younger kids do.

This weekend is my 20-year High School Reunion! I can't believe it! Time has just flown by! I certainly don't feel that old! I am really looking forward to it. Several old friends whom I haven't seen since Katrina will be in town, and I can't wait to see them. We're going to have so much fun.

If you like scrapbooking and mystery books, then you will love the book I just finished reading. It's called Motif for Murder, and it's by an author named Laura Childs. It's one of a series of Scrapbook Mystery novels set in New Orleans. The heroine is a woman who owns a scrapbook store and solves crimes. I liked this one so much that I ordered the first three in the series. If you've read them, let's discuss!

Enjoy your Halloween! Have a fun but safe time!

P.S. Someone very special is celebrating a birthday tomorrow, and I need to give her a special shout out. Who is it? It's only the greatest little sister ever! Happy Birthday, Debbie! Have a super fabulous wonderful day! I love you!

Like Mother, Like Daughter!
Yep, that's my Kirby sitting at my scrap table. Apparently she's been watching Mommy scrap too much because she looks like she's ready to scrap! Good girl, Kirby!
Just wanted to share this cute pic. Will post more later!
