Miss You and Merry Christmas Cards

Good Morning blogland---I wanted to share some photos and a couple of cards with you today. This is our little one in this years costume. I have to tell you though, it is such a chore to go costume hunting with her. I just dread it every year. You know, one of those shopping trips when DH goes with us. That's the way I feel with her. It takes forever as she needs to try on ever single one in the store. But anywho, this is what she decided on. A little witch. Somedays it truly fits her...lol...must be that pre-teen thing going on with her...she had alot of fun and that's all that matters. .......I hope everyone had a great Halloween time... ---oh---the little pumpkin head she made at a girl scout trip a week or so back.they went to a farm for the day and this is what she came home with....isn't she just dazzling.... This is our little GB. It's his first Halloween. Isn't he just the cutest....
And this is him with our poochie. Do you see the sad eyes that he's portraying? He hates his costume (poochie). I mean really "hates" it...the day our little one came home from shopping with DH and she put this on him he came running to me and gave me those sad eyes like, please help me. I knew exactly what he was thinking. I look like a dork....lol...I'm a boy and this is for girls...lol...although it's a very nicely made costume, it's big and bulky and just not him. Our little one (Kait) was planning on taking him trick or treating this year with her. So come Halloween, he laid around all day, not eating basically not doing anything. We thought something was wrong. So we pampered him that day and I wouldn't let Kait take him out treating with her. Needless to say, it really broke her heart and I felt really bad. Anywho, this is the best part, after everything was over with he was all jumpity and barking and being his old self. When I seen that I told DH that he was playing possum cuz he was not wearing that pumpkin costume out in public....lol...I could not believe that our dog was smart enough to do something of this nature. Maybe I'm wrong, but I tell ya, I really don't think I am....and we laugh about it when see his costume sitting there.
The next 2 cards were inspired by my friend Donna (popsicle toes) . She does such amazing work with the Cricut machine and her DS it just makes me drool over everything she makes.

Nancy these are too cute, the card too! Is your daughter a Girl Scout?! How neat I am and have been a leader to my daughter's troop for 6 years now! I love your little GB in his costume! I think you are right about poochie too, my Roxie hated her costume! She loved taking pictures with, but the one Halloween we bought her a costume and put it on her, she literally sagged her head as if she were just too darn embarrassed! Too fun! Thanks for Sharing!

OOOh Nancy! Looks like you all had a fun Halloween (except of course dear poochie LOL) I've dressed Goliath up at times and he did the same thing. Definitely had that "I look ridiculous" look on his face. Jessie I can barely catch to pick up. Beautiful cards lady! How sweet to say I inspired you! Love reading your answers. I swear the majority of people say RED as their favorite color (including me!) Hugs! D
