I hope that you all had a great day today! 

I want to share some of our photos with you (yes more, lol)! Smile 
We had a great time.  After my hubby came home, we went trick-or-treating, then we came home to eat dinner.  After that, we made popcorn, homemade-hot coco and then watched a family movie.

Happy Halloween!

I hope that you all have a great Halloween today!
I thought I would just share a couple of photos from our weekend!
We went to a Halloween Party Saturday night!
We brought the cutest little pirate, princess and lion that we could find.

Michael had been wanting to be a pirate since we went on a Pirate’s Cruse in Florida for his birthday.

We did too! Smile  My husband dressed up as a biker (don’t worry, the cigarette is fake) and I went as an 80’s girl.  Like the hair? lol

Today, Michael dresses up for school and I was able to go into the classroom and take pictures.  Then they had a little parade around the school and we going trick-or-treating in the office.  Grace’s class with be dressing up as saints tomorrow for All Saint’s Day.
After my husband gets home today, we are going out trick-or-treating with my neighbors but I only want to stay out for like an hour.  It is sooo cold here!  Then we will come home and hand out candy.  Actually,  my kids don’t eat their candy, we give it out to the others.  I know, I know…I am the meanest mom the world.  I get them some Trader' Joe’s candy if they want a couple pieces of something but because we never eat any of that junk, they don’t really like it.  I will have raspberries, strawberries and apples with homemade sugar-free dip that they will go nuts over.  They will be just fine.  They just like getting dressed up.
What are your Halloween plans?
Do you dress up?  As what?
Do you have any family traditions?
Happy Halloween!

Pink and white... my favorite colors...

Welcome to "SHOW OFF YOUR COTTAGE MONDAY", a blog party I host at the beginning of each week to celebrate the things we love about our homes and how we live.

The House in the Roses

I wanted to say welcome new party goers as well as say thank you to all my party friends for taking the time to come over and share your wonderful links each week!


Sharing with these lovely gals!

More Crown Molding

We have been busy around here! One of the projects that we just had done was adding crown molding to our kitchen and family room.  Earlier in the year, my husband installed some in our living and dining room and I just loved so it was time to add more.  I am really pleased how it turned out!
Here are some during/before shots.

I just love all the cuts!

I am very happy with it.  I took everything off above my cabinets so I can see the molding.

I love the added white to my house and it inspired me want to paint my kitchen table white now too.  What do you think about that?

I also want to paint my frame and boarder to my Sacred Heart photo white too.  I am just loving white now, lol!
