While you wait

I am a little slow posting my progress on the Halloween Countdown book this morning. I’m not feeling the best and I really had to do some housework. Drat the awful housework! I have to admit though that I do love the feeling of a clean room when I’m though, and my bathroom is sparkling this morning. It feels so good!

Anyway while you wait I thought I’d post the list of all the activities we’ve put together for the tags in the Countdown book. I say we because my darling daughter Stacey helped with the list. You are the best Stace! So are you Amy.

But first a quick peek at what I’ve been doing so far. P1060517
