Birthday, Yard Sales & Fall Fest

First of all I want to wish my good friend and fellow blogger, all round wonderful person, Cecile, a happy, happy birthday! Today she is 29 (I don't care what everyone else says).

Here is Cecile with her handsome hunk of a husband. (Missy already had the mom pic).

Here is Cole, Cecile's rockin' son. Hope you get everything you wish for and more. You deserve it.
Today we went to a couple of yard sales before we headed out to the Fall Fest at the college. We got some good deals today too. Hut got a new small entertainment center for his bedroom. The one in there is really big and doesn't match his bedroom furniture. So he's a happy camper, more room in his bedroom.

The kitties got a new toy today too. We got them this great Kitty Condo thing. They took right to it and are having a great time. We got them a smaller one too for when they are in the computer room. Our animals are not spoiled.

The fall fest was basically what I thought it would be. Alot of floral, a small amount of crafters and alot of store bought things. I did find a few things. There is a crafter there every year that does Santa ornaments and I find one every year for my tree. So I bought some things from here (sorry no pics). We also found this hideous witch for my yard (Just about the only halloween thing I didn't have in the yard). She was a good deal...only $10. When you see her you'll know why, lol.

Here she is.....didn't realize she looked like Michael Jackson until I looked at this picture. Missy, she is made just like my ghosts. She is a good addtion to my halloween yard, though.

My friend Mona is a member of La Sertoma, a group that helps kids. They sell pumpkins every year. This is my pumpkin that I bought this year. It was the only one that still had a stem. They had to remove the stems so the kids wouldn't pick them up, drop them and break them. It's a worthy cause.

This is my face. The fall fest at the college has different departments that do different fund raisers to make money. I have ALWAYS had my face painted, no matter where we go. Hut picked out the witch today. I wanted a candy corn to match my earrings, but oh well. We do an event at Christmas, where I help Santa, and I always get my face painted with Santa on it. The kids think it's great. And everyone always laughs at me, because all my kids are grown and I never have any little one's with me. I may grow old, but I'll never grow up.

Happy Birthday to sweet Cecile!!! She's the best!

Love your little witch face painting Bonnie and that's a great pumpkin. I didn't make it to Fall Fest...maybe next year.

The kitties look like they're having a great time in the new condo...that's really nice for them.

Happy Birthday Cecile!

I wish we would have been in Florida so we could have gone to PCC with you guys!

You found some wonderful things! And I love that you still get your face painted.
