"The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash"*

Now that it's almost October, I've decided it's not too early to share this little bit of silly Halloween fun. Courtesy of the Oriental Trading Company (which is a good place to shop if you're hosting a themed party), I made a Monster Mash-Up.

I created several of these with various people in my family and e-mailed the results to them. Admittedly, uploading and cropping those pictures to get the heads just right was way more fun than it should have been.

The one you got to see featured me, me, and more me (at various stages of my life). There's me at a Yankees game, me sitting in a river with shorts on my head while on a girls' camping trip, me in a swimming pool, me dressed up as a pirate for my Halloween party, and me sitting on a lawn with my sisters (we're all in dresses). I picked the rock version of the song because, of course, I'm a rock star!

So often, it's the little things in life that put a smile on my face. What makes you smile? (Oh, and if you decide to make your own Monster Mash-Up be sure to post a link for me...pretty please.)
