Signature Project


My Junior League signature project took place on Saturday and it was a huge success! We set up on Friday after work and then I got there on Saturday at 8:30 a.m., and stayed until 2 p.m. It was such a rewarding experience - those kids and their parents are inspirational. Hopefully, for at least a few hours, they could take their minds off cancer and just have fun and be kids. I've included some pics of the pumkins the kids decorated and some of the many munchies that we had available. Out of the privacy of the families who attended, I won't include any shots of them on my blog. And, no photos of myself - I was wearing a witch's hat and it was not pretty!

So, it's the week leading up to Halloween. My kids are already too excited for their own good. They attended two Halloween parties this weekend and have been bouncing off the walls (must ration the candy). With Halloween being on a Saturday this year, I'm sure there will be plenty of mischief. I better remember to bring the pumpkins inside after the last trick-or-treaters. :)
