Here is my inspiration for this years pumpkin! RUFIO.......hehehe. I carved him for Halloween! BOO ----ROOF----RUFIOOOOOOOOOOO!

We attended a fun Halloween partayyyyyyy last night, and here are some of the costumes!
Nadya, OctoMom(hilarious), Tim was a yellow chicken, I was a Chicago Style Hot dog, and Earl, the personal trainer. There were some Swine Flu viruses, that I did not get a picture of, they were in pink t-shirts(that said H1N1) with pink wings, pink pig noses AND they were walking around with a tray of jello SHOTS. Funny!

The food layout is always beautiful at Tim and Cathy's, with carved pumpkins and their collection of beautiful and scary Halloween decorations that they have accumulated over the years!

Looks delish right?

Caesar stayed in costume all night.....and it was 40 outside, that is the bon fire his toes are in! Good job Joel!

Cathy(retired Hooters gal) and her folks, Mom, Penguin and Dad the Sheik. Hehehe!

Fun times!

Here is my Bride of Frankenstein Cake to contribute to a party we are attending on Saturday night. OH the fun! I am missing the eye lashes and the neck bolts yet, but I wanted a shot, because tomorrow I am taking her to work. The first picture Amber took in her black and white green accent mode on her camera. The other two are in full color.
Anyone else making fun treats for Halloween?

What a lucky girl I am!!!!!
I donated to the Pink Artists who were raising money for Breast Cancer research!
A group of artists donated items to give as prizes to encourage donations.

You can see the Pink Artist Group here.....

ANYWAYS, I WON a prize from Patty Szymkowicz

A landscape company here is WI, celebrated it's 50th Anniversary and the restaurant I work at did the catering.......and I decorated 3 sheet cakes with their logo on it. (A tree and their company name.)
I was watching the news last night, and they covered the event, as David J. Frank does charity work for the community and involved it in his celebration, very cool!!! Anyways, here is the clip from the FOX channel six news here......don't blink, or you will miss the cake! :0)
You can put your curser on the video clip as it starts playing and a light gray pause button will appear and you can pause the frame on the cake if you want to see it at a standstill.
It was fun seeing it there on the tv!
