I came across this pic from Halloween 2005 I still say what the heck was I thinking .. What can I say had just started my 8th month of pregnancy and I thought it would be funny to dress up like a trailer trash Diva.. My Pg belly served me well as a beer gut..Third but not least my BFF from the 7th grade sent me this tag .. She thought it fit me well. I think she is way too sweet .. So Beth was I Smart, sassy and always classy in the 7th grade?

****Edidted***** This is my favorite post of 2008 I am playing along with TIP Junkies Talk to me tuseday. Go there and tak a peek at others best post of 2008.
Last night I got a phone call from Kadie just after I had gotten all snuggled in to my bed she was coming back into town and said the northern lights were amazeing and that I should go look out the window. I thought no way would I be able to see them. I went to the window anyways and saw nothing. I then decided to look out our back window and sure enough you could see the northern lights dancing there magic. I stood there in utter Awe at the beauty I was seeing. I was amazed at the different shapes and colors that were swirling across the night sky. The Aurora Borealis kept getting lower and lower it was almost like it was right on top of my house. I decided to enter the cold night as I stepped out on to my back patio I felt the magic take over. I started dancing with the lights . I somehow felt warm engulfed in their beauty. I felt the cool wind on my skin and as I danced with the lights. I swear I could here singing a soft sweet melody. My eyes were filled with tears as I just swayed to the unknown melody. I felt so many amazeing emotions at that moment. I soon realised I was not alone I felt that William and Marie were with me. I could see there silhouettes in the darkness I believe it was Marie that I heard singing. Nothing was said we all just were just there dancing with the lights. It was very reverent and magical all at the same time. It was almost like for that moment all was right with the world. I kept taking deep breathes as if I could some how breath in the magic and keep it deep with in me. I started to shiver from the extreme cold and the lights started to shift towards my neighbors house and I new for now the magic was over. I reluctantly went back in my house got back into bed and just laid there wondering if I dreamed the whole thing.
I have heard many different legends concerning the northern lights. One being that the lights are spirits of Children playing ball . How sweet is that.. I can see how people would think that the lights are the spirits of those who have passed before them. For me it was definitely a spiritual experience.
My Question of the day.. Have you ever seen the Northern lights? My other question do you know of any of the legends associated with them?

I could probably write a book about the many experiences I have had with spirits. Sometimes after i have these experiences I am overwhelmed with how crazy it seams but I never once doubt that they are real.
So my question of the day is do you believe in spirits and have you ever had experiences with them?

So I did not get my Halloween post posted yesterday life just got in the way. Shopping , bargains , My grandfather saved my life and a sick tummy, I will save the details for tomorrow's post. Now on to the Halloween goodness!!
First I want to share these delightful cards I made from some fun Halloween vintage clip art I found on THIS SITE I love vintage pictures and clip art. This is the first time I was brave enough to make cards with them.. They did not turn out to bad..Next I made these fun book marks I found at Activity Village.
They were super simple to make all you do is copy the book marks laminate them then cut them out punch a hole in the top the add trim and Halloween brads.. I made them to give to Madeline's extra class she goes to. I wanted to give them something fun that was not a sweet treat.
When I was at the grocery store a few days a go I saw these ghost peeps and thought my kids would like them in there hot coco.
When they came home from school on Friday I handed each of them a ghostly cup of COCO They all smiled even the teenagers.
Last but not least Me and Ben made these cute jackolanterns out of hostess snow balls they Were just so cute smiling back at us.
This coming week I will have some more Halloween goodness including the cutest apron i ever made and instructions on how to create your own.
I hope everyone is have a good Sunday. My question of the week kind of odd but thought I would ask any ways When do you all start decorating for Christmas?

So my question to you is am I the only one with dorky moments?
by Edgar Allan Poe
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -Only this, and nothing more.'Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -Nameless here for evermore.And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating`'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -This it is, and nothing more,'Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,`Sir,' said I, `or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,That I scarce was sure I heard you' - here I opened wide the door; -Darkness there, and nothing more.Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!'This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!'Merely this and nothing more.Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.`Surely,' said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; -'Tis the wind and nothing more!'Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -Perched, and sat, and nothing more.Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,With such name as `Nevermore.'But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did out pour.Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -On the morrow will he leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,`Doubtless,' said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful disaster Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore -Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore Of "Never-nevermore."'But the raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door;Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore -What this grim, ungainly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore Meant in croaking `Nevermore.'This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o'er,But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er,She shall press, ah, nevermore!Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.`Wretch,' I cried, `thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he has sent thee Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! -Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted -On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore -Is there - is there balm in Gilead? - tell me - tell me, I implore!'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil!By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels named Lenore -Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Lenore?'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'`Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting -`Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore
