Halloween Treat Bags....

Hope your weekend was fabulous! Mine was great! Saturday I hung out with my scrappy girlfriends. We ate, talked, laughed our butts off, and scrapped for 12 straight hours! And.....I actually managed to get a few LO's done! We always have a great time when we get the chance to "catch up." Sunday was a "Stay in Your Jammies" kind of day. We switched over our summer/winter clothes and I cooked a nice Sunday dinner. We even cracked open a bottle of wine with dinner. (And yes.....we ate in our PJ's! ) After dinner we played a game of Scrabble with Kyle, while Brian listened to the Bear's game in the background. It was just one of those weekends that are sort of warm and fuzzy! : )

I work with two other 5th grade teachers, and I wanted to make them little Halloween treat bags. I filled them with Ghiradelli chocolate and some cute packages of hot cocoa. (They were super cute....but of course I forgot to take a picture of 'em!) I used the Crafty Secret's Postcard kits to dress the bags up. They made the bags look cute and it didn't take all that much time to do! I added some pretty fall embellishments and a lil' tag for their names.

On the Friday before Halloween, these babies will be sitting on their desks! Then when they need a bit of a pick me up....they can crack the bags open to get at some of that yummy chocolate!

I made homemade French Onion soup yesterday for today's dinner. (The directions said it actually tastes better when it sits a day or two....) I am really enjoying trying all of these new recipes! Watch out Bobby Flay! : )
Have a FANTASTIC Monday!! Thanks for visiting me today!
