Halloween Decorations and an update on Maddie

Well, my time line for showing you my Halloween decorations is almost running out. I can't say that they are super original because I saw an idea I just loved. This is totally ripped off from Country Living. Here's what I did:

First, I drew half a bat. You can totally download and print this out from Coutry Living, but I didn't have access to a printer!

I used poster board for my bats. I wanted something just a little thicker than cardstock. I cut two different sizes of bats.

And up they went! They are so fun... especially at night. I can't wait for Halloween. We got Maddie's Halloween costume in the mail today. She's going to be a lion. It's way cute. Speaking of Maddie, we gave her a bath tonight. We have only taken her to the groomer. We haven't ventured into this yet ourselves. I thought she was going to hate it, but she actually did pretty well. The only bad thing was she was freezing.

Look how cute:

And here's Maddie and I playing her favorite game. I think it goes something like this:

Maddie: I'm going to eat your hands off... JUST KIDDING!

She loves it! It's so funny.

I'm off to work on somethings for Everything But the Kitchen Sink! I hope you'll play along on Friday!

Your front porch look so festive! I used to have a dog that loved the blow drier after a bath, you might want to try that! :)
