Gingerbread house and dance classes

What I love about Halloween # 4: Shy and I started a tradition three years ago that we kick the boys out of the house and decorate a gingerbread haunted house together. It use to bug me that it was not perfect but this year I let Shy tell me where she wanted the icing and exactly what she wanted the windows, doors, etc to look like then I let her go crazy with the candy. We make a great team and the joy on her face makes our Gingerbread house one of the best things I've done!

What I love about Halloween #3: This is a brand new love! I have had "Spooky classes" with each of my classes. We dance to fun music like Thriller and Monster Mash. I taught them new steps like the Igor Limp and the Frankenstein March. Then (after we went over our recital pieces a couple of times) we played games. It was so much fun. I have my last Halloween classes tonight and it makes me sad that it will be a whole year till next October. As you can see the girls insisted I dress up too. I didn't want to wear the same thing for three days straight so I was an angel the first day, a Cheerleader the second day (yep, thats the old North Sevier Attire!), and today I will be a girl from the 50s.

Okay, way too cute. I love the house, Shy is an exceptional decorator. I love the Halloween costumes. I can't even come up with one and you have three!!

You can still fit into your cheer uniform?!? It's official, I hate you now. Of course, I would give anything just to fit into a t-shirt right now.
