Halloween ~Simple Goods show~ and Swap Goodies

Hope everyone had a great Halloween! Sorry I've been busy and have not had time to post. Halloween here was very cold brrr!! We even had snow on the ground, not as much as some of my blog friends...lol poor Amy at Bumble Bee Lane had 8 inches.   We only had about an inch left because most had melted. My daughter Paige was dressed as a witch ( a nice witch as she called it...lol). My two boys Justin and Jordan don't really trick or treat anymore as they are 12 and 13 so they just dress up and give out candy and try to scare all the little goblins that are out.  We had a birthday party bonn fire for my Jordan's 12th birthday on Saturday. His birthday is on Halloween but we always have is party earlier.  Then on Sunday I worked on some projects that I am doing for a swap.  My hubby and I are making a buttery for my kitchen and so we finished one part of it this weekend too.  I'll post pics of the buttery later.

Here is the exciting part!  Tomorrow me and the hubby are leaving to go to Mt. Vernon, Ohio to the Simple Goods primitive antique show.  I am so EXCITED!!! This is the first BIG prim show that I have been to because we don't have any big shows in our area.  It is going to be so fun, for me of course..lol.   Not sure how much fun the Mr. will be having but I am going to be having a blast.  He says he will just find the food and that's where he will stay so I guess he'll be having fun too...lol.  We are not taking any of the kids with us or at least we are planning on having no kids. My mother in law is watching them but  Paige doesn't like being away from mommy so we will see. Jill Peterson is supposed to be there so I hope to get her new book and cookbook and have her sign them.  I will post pictures  of my prim finds when I get back.

I received a great surprise package in the mail today!  It was swap goodies from Eve at Lee Hill Primitives.  Eve and I are partners for the Christmas at the Cabin swap that Amy from Bumble Bee Lane is hosting.  Eve handmade everything for me.  She is so talented.  I love her prims! Thank you so much for everything Eve!!

Hi Christina!
Kids are so cute!
It is a 3 1/2 hour drive from my house but I am leaving tomorrow and going to Waynesville first and spending the night in Heath Ohio and getting up early to go to Simple Goods. I can't wait either!
My husband wants to go with me too.
He likes prims too and it will be nice to get away. Have fun shopping! They have wonderful prim ornies for Christmas!
