Halloween Goodies

I can't believe how fast this year is flying by!  Although I started preparing myself for Halloween back in September, I didn't actually complete anything until a few days before!  I swear the last time I had checked, I still had at least a week to get everything done!  ANYWAYS, I made some really quick pouches for my kids classes (85 in all) - and of course, I forgot to get pictures of them before they were passed out!  Oh well.  I did remember to get pictures of a few other goodies I made for my kids teachers and some friends.
I made these for the teachers.  Found the template for them here.
Made a few of these for some GF's after seeing it here.
And what a great surprise it was when I saw Mama at our kids school and she stopped by to give me such an adorable "treat"!  I absolutely love it and all of the other mom's around me were admiring it as well! :-)
Isn't just adorable? There are 5 lollipops behind each of those pumpkins!  I love all the details you added to it Mama!  Thank you so much again!!
Oh, and here's the back!  My DD was so excited when she saw it because we bought her the 5 Little Pumpkins book a few weeks before Halloween and she had been reading it almost daily since then!  She has the words memorized!  So of course after she saw the back of Mama's RAK, she began reciting it all the way home from school! :-)  Oh, and when we got home, she asked me who gets the lollipops!  LOL!!
Well there you have it...Halloween has come and gone and now I'm bracing myself for Thanksgiving, Christmas and then a new year!  YIKES!  We're already starting week TWO of NOVEMBER!!!  Oh boy, I wish I were a kid again and I had the time to truly enjoy the holiday season and all of the joy that comes with it - WITHOUT stress!!  I'm trying to remind myself what makes the holiday season so special for me so that I can stay focused on my family and friends and let the rest of it fall into place accordingly! :-)  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're taking time to enjoy the start of the holiday season!
