ATC Cards Day/Weekend...

After procrastinating for four long months, it is time to get the "ENABLE COOKIES" challenge fixed which was caused by McAfee Privacy Protection as we suspected. YIPPY...we now have our own BLOG as evident here! Really...How does one go about commencing a blog? We started with the idea that it ought to begin something really profound because it is, after all, our very FIRST blog entry...Nahhhh...Let's just have some fun instead! Like everything we try, we hope to learn and grow each and every moment in this exciting blogging world.

So often we are asked what we do all day. The assumption is that, as homeschoolers, we spend our day pouring over textbooks, doing "school at home". Nothing could be further from the truth. Take a glimpse into our lives by visiting our blog as frequently as you'd like. You may be surprised to see all the "learning" that is going on.

The Halloween Party hosted by COOL Kid's Club was a smashing success, attended by 10 COOL families. Three weeks of hardwork and detailed planning by the COOL Kid's Club did not go unnoticed. We didn't do a head count but were certain there were 10 families with 40+ people in our small home! Party started at 5 pm and ended shortly after 8 pm on Wednesday, October 17. Besides the haunted house maze, fortune-teller offering, many special treats awaited the kids, there was no shortage of good food and companies. Can you imagine what was on the dinner menu? Just to name a few...Dried Mummy Bones, Fresh Brains, Eyeball Surprise, Ghostie Toasties, Bloody Worms, Vampire Blood, Bat Wings, Old Rotten Pumpkin Guts, Pickled Eyeballs...we even saved the creative place cards for these to-die-for main courses and desserts. It was a memorable, fun-filled evening for all.

What will next year's be? Will COOL Kid's Club be around then to host another fabulous party? Who knows? "While the house is still tidy, perhaps we should have a Thanksgiving and Christmas party next week." suggested dh. No joke...he really was serious about that!

Moving on...we spent most of the weekend making Halloween Artist Trading Cards (ATC) for a swap hosted by our local friend, Chloe. This is our first official trade through Imagination Tribe. Many techniques were used in the making and we're quite pleased with how they all turned out.

DD#2 decided to give it a try after observing how much fun DD#1 has been having with making ATC cards. As always, DD#1 is a good "mentor." We'll take more pictures and upload them tomorrow.
