Happy Friday!! We’re getting ready for Halloween at my house. Yes, I need a good two weeks to prepare. We have a school Halloween Carnival, a Harvest Festival, two pumpkin patch trips, two school parties, and a Halloween parade to participate in. Yeah.
I’ve finally got all the costume stuff ready to go and we’re gearing up for my eldest daughter’s birthday that is also on Halloween. Time to party!!
I wanted to show you some cool Frankenstein cookie pops I want to make but the blog they are on is down and I didn’t save the images. *pouts* But that sent me in search of other cool Franken-Pops and I found these. zomg So cute! I like the one one the right. He’s all…”Oh shiz, I’m a Franken-Pop.”
[edited: The Skip To My Lou blog is up...sort of. Go here to see the other Franken-Pops I wanted to show you. You'll have to scroll down.]
I also plan on doing something similar to these if I’m feeling VERY ambitious. I’m supposed to bring cookies to the pre-school Halloween party. We’ll see if they get these, or oreos.

On a more serious note, FVBR reviewer, Juliana will be participating in AFSP’s Washington DC Out of the Darkness Community Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
In her words:
Dear Friends and Family,
On Saturday, October 29 I will be walking in AFSP’s Washington DC Out of the Darkness Community Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. AFSP is at the forefront of research, education, and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide.
More than 33,000 lives are lost each year in the U.S. to suicide – that’s one every 14.6 minutes – and over one million worldwide. Organizations like AFSP are essential in order to battle stigma, increase mental health awareness, and let people know how to get help.
As most of you know, AFSP’s mission is very close to my heart. I have lost friends to suicide and have myself struggled with depression for many years. I know how important these efforts are and how much of a difference they can make.
I hope that you will consider supporting my participation in this event. All donations are 100% tax deductible. You can donate online by going to http://afsp.donordrive.com/
