Friday Football Feeding Frenzy~~~~Scaredy Cats~~~~

How about a fun snack for the weekend football crew?  You definitely should include a Halloween Treat!

My daughter sent me a great idea!  Like many of you, Halloween is her favorite Holiday.  She also loves to bake and decorate!

Inspired by Taste of Home, she got busy making her treats for a group she attends each month.  She made several changes to the design of the cat and hers are so much cuter! Not that I am biased of course.  You be the judge!

Weekend Project.....NOT.  You won't see me working on anything this weekend. 

I do have to share with you what my daughter-in-law sewed for me!  OMGosh, I have a great family....
In the spirit of Halloween.

Halloween Apron on MeHopefully, I will be able to promote the girls work on my blog soon, as they stay busy with their crafty passions!


Isn't it precious?  Can't wait to wear it to our neighborhood Trick or Treat parade on Halloween night!  Instead of the children going door to door to get their treats, they parade down the street in their adorable costumes and we give them treats as they parade.  We also have a costume judging contest and a haunted house...

Oh and yes that's me and I bake with my boots on! 

It is hard to get a picture of yourself!  Yay for the smart phones!








CHEERS!
