The youngest remained with us until the end of January when she was granted the okay to go and live with her dad. The oldest is still with us and I am happy to announce that Audree will remain with us permanently, as my daughter was granted custody of her!!!!! Woo hoo!
Today is Sept. 1 and the anniversary date of her joining our family. The custody has been final for several weeks now, but today is a day of celebration here.
I have not totally neglected my Halloween planning all year and have been back in full planning mode all during August. I will be hosting three parties this year and things have been busy with the planning.
I am hosting my first all female witches Halloween party fashioned after parties of friends from the Halloween Forum site. Several posters there host a Witches Wingding and a Bewitched Bash. They have been doing this for several years and last year I read about it too late to plan one of my own. But, this year, I will debut my Be WITCHY party in mid-October.
WITCHY is an acronym for Wonderful Intelligent Talented Charming Helpful You. Be WITCHY will be a celebration of and for women, all dressed in their witchy finery. I will be writing more about the planning and decorating during the next two months on a regular basis. However, I wanted to drop by today and show off my newest witch prop.
This is not a very good photo of her, but she is adorable. She will greet guests as they come in the front door.
I spent last night working on the plans for the front yard and little courtyard area out front. More to come about this later.
