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!
