My First Battle Boo!

Yesterday, my daughter found the container of InstaMorph when I was straightening up the house. It reminded her of past projects (Wolfie the Bunnies and Superhero Action Figures). She asked, "Can I make something with this?"

I had been wanting to make a Battle Boo out of InstaMorph ever since I wrote my book, THREE GHOST FRIENDS AND THE BATTLE BOOS. While she worked on her project, I decided to work on mine!
Later in the day, my son noticed we were running low on InstaMorph and asked, "Can you buy me more of this for Christmas?" It is less than 10 dollars on Amazon!
My daughter made a cat out of the moldable plastic. InstaMorph is very easy to use. First, you heat water to 140 degrees and then pour in a bunch of the InstaMorph plastic pellets. Then, after 2 minutes the pellets can be molded into anything you want. My daughter chose to paint the plastic after she was finished. 
Here is my Battle Boo! #6 Captain Boo Beard.
I used Sharpie markers to add the design.
Flying! Zooming! On the Attack!
Woo-Hoo! Battle Boos!

Monroe's Orchard - October 1st, 2016

The forecast didn't look good all week. On Friday night the forecast was predicting rain for much of Saturday. After an early morning misty rain on Saturday the clouds remained, and there was a still a chance for an afternoon shower.

The Monroe's gave me a huge space in the barn to setup my gear. How cool is that! 
The craft table -- Four fun crafts for the kids!
It wasn't raining yet so I was smiling! I hoped the clouds and raindrops wouldn't scare people away.
But, the families came to the orchard and the craft tables were busy all day!
Amazingly, the sun came out and stayed out for the whole festival!
The ghosts were so happy!
My children picked apples!
And visited the pumpkin patch!
The only raindrops I saw were on my windshield when I was packing up after the festival was over. I am so very thankful for this day!
